REPORT: Granovskaia takes a surprising choice to trade Chelsea’s best player Prior to the imposition of sanctions, 33.5 million dollars were spent.
Chelsea managing director Marina Granovskaia was prepared to sell Armando Broja for €30m (£25m) to €40m (£33.5m) before the club was sanctioned, according to Tuttomercatoweb.
The Albanian international was a target for Napoli, according to an Italian website, who were provided indications that he was available until the ownership of the Blues became a subject of dispute.
Broja has had a successful loan stay at Southampton this season, and he has reportedly attracted attention from Arsenal, West Ham United, and Napoli, among others.
There have been speculations that manager Thomas Tuchel wants Broja back at Cobham this summer to see whether he wants him in his first-team plans, but Granovskaia appears to have other plans.
First and foremost, anything may happen when a takeover is imminent. For the time being, fans should not be anxious about the potential of Broja’s sale because Granovskaia’s future at the club is unknown.
