Fenerbahce forced to deny Attila Szalai to Chelsea is a ‘done deal’ and say there are ‘no’ transfer negotiations

FENERBAHCE have denied that it is a ‘done deal’ for Attila Szalai to join Chelsea.

The Blues are looking for defensive reinforcements with Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta all out of contract in June.

The Blues have been linked with a transfer switch to Stamford Bridge

Although he wants to keep them, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is taking no chances and is already searching for replacements.

That has led to speculation that the Premier League side were preparing a move for Fenerbahce’s Szalai, 23.

And that talk intensified yesterday when the Hungarian international’s national manager Marco Rossi claimed it was already a ‘done deal’.

When asked if any of his players looked set for a big-money move in 2022, he said: “It’s hard to name just one player but right now I see very well Attila Szalai, who plays for Fenerbahce… I think he is joining Chelsea.

“Clearly, he has been followed by important clubs in Spain, but apparently his move to Chelsea is a done deal.”

Fenerbahce were furious about those remarks and the speculation, leading to them issuing a statement last night.

It read: “The allegations regarding the transfer of our player Attila Szalai, which have been made public in the last few days, based on foreign press and social media, do not reflect the truth.

“Our club has not made any transfer negotiations regarding our successful football player Attila Szalai.

“Our player continues his work completely concentrating on the goals of our team. We present it to the public.”
