One more French international at Chelsea? According to the English media, The Athletic, Monaco and Chelsea have reached an agreement regarding the transfer of Benoît Badiashile. The central defender of Monaco should commit to the Blues for the sum of 37.5 million euros.
A big loss for ASM as the native of Limoges formed a solid central hinge with Axel Disasi. Thus, the sports management of Monaco will have to find a replacement for him. A construction site is therefore opening in the Principality.
