Chelsea ready to sanction £20m sale – but only on one condition

Chelsea are ready to sell Kenedy to Newcastle this summer, but only if the Magpies agree to insert a buy-back clause into the deal.

The Telegraph reports that the Brazilian is keen to complete a permanent move to St James’ Park after a successful loan spell at the club.

The two clubs have been in talks over a £20 million deal, but Chelsea want to protect themselves.

The Blues have been well known to add in buy-back clauses into a number of sales recently following the departures of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.

After the success that the Belgian duo have enjoyed away from Chelsea, the Blues are keen to ensure the same thing does not happen in the future.

Both Nathan Ake and Nathaniel Chalobah reportedly have buy-back clauses in their respective deals that saw them move away from Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis.

Whilst Chelsea may not see a future at Stamford Bridge for Kenedy, they want to protect themselves from any further embarrassment in the transfer market.

Chelsea hold talks with agents as they put €5.5m contract offer on the table

Chelsea are said to have offered Alisson a better financial deal than Real Madrid with the Blues keen to seal a deal for the Brazilian.

Il Tempo, as cited by Sport Witness claim that the Premier League side have been in talks with agents in a bid to strike a deal with Roma.

Both clubs could offer the goalkeeper a better financial deal than what he is currently earning at Roma.

However, with no Champions League football to offer the player, the Blues may be forced to put their hands in their pockets to secure their key targets this summer.

Chelsea have reportedly offered the player €5.5 million a year, which works out at just over €100,000 a week, compared to the €5 million Madrid have put on the table.

Alisson has been attracting interest from Chelsea, Liverpool and Madrid this summer, with all three sides in the market for a new goalkeeper.

Chelsea are looking for a replacement for Thibaut Courtois, who is set to finally get his dream return to Spain.
