Three Reasons Why Danilo Would Be Perfect For Chelsea
Antonio Conte has made some serious name for himself in just his first year in England as he managed to lift the league title with Chelsea last season. Though the squad was consistent throughout the campaign, Chelsea had some serious loopholes in the squad that will surely be exposed at the highest level in Europe next season. So it does not come as a surprise that a number of star players have extensively been linked with a move to the English capital this summer.
One of many such superstars linked with big money moves to the Stamford Bridge is Brazilian star Danilo. Having failed to establish himself in the first team under Zinedine Zidane last season, Danilo is reportedly up for sale this summer, with Italian side Juventus already making a bid for his services. But reports suggest that Chelsea are ready to meet his valuation to beat Juventus to his signature. Here are three reasons why Danilo could be the perfect choice for Chelsea next season:
The 25-year old Brazilian star is one of the most exciting players at right back but he has not been able to impress Zidane enough to warrant a place in the first team in one of the best squads in Europe. Strong and athletic, he is tailor-made for the Premier League conditions and has the ability to walk into the first team at the Stamford Bridge. At just 25, he is also an option for the long term and is the right man for Chelsea.
The full-back is still an exciting prospect for even the best of the teams in Europe and he has a contract with Real that runs until 2021. These are all the makings of a player with an inflated price in this transfer market but with Zidane desperate to make some space for new additions, he is ready to let Danilo leave for a cheap price. It is reported that Chelsea are ready to make a £22m bid for his services and that they are confident of landing him at that price. In a market where a player like Kyle Walker costs £50m, Danilo is an absolute steal.
Lack Of Options
But most importantly, Chelsea need to complete this deal as there is a dearth of quality when it comes to full-backs in Europe. There are very few top class right backs ready to make a move this summer and Chelsea should be happy that they have a chance to snap up one of the best in the business in Europe. He may not be the big name that the fans are hoping for but surely, Danilo is the perfect solution for a problem that is currently prevailing at Stamford Bridge.
