A couple of contract clauses mean that a Premier League defensive star could potentially return to Chelsea. However, if the Blues don’t want to sign Crystal Palace centreback Marc Guehi, the west London club will still earn a possible £15million from any prospective sale. Meanwhile, a Tottenham Hotspur player has given an explanation as to why the north London side imploded in Monday’s explosive match.
An interesting report caught The Pride of London’s discerning eye on Wednesday. Apparently, there are two stipulations which were inserted into Guehi’s Palace agreement by Chelsea. The defender is now a standout in the English top-flight as well as an England international after leaving Stamford Bridge in 2021 for £18m.
The initial clause gives CFC the right to match futures bids for the 23-year-old. Though there are many Blues centrebacks at the club presently. If Guehi goes elsewhere for, say, £60m, Chels’ would be entitled to £15m.
Chelsea eventually defeated Tottenham 4-1 in an emotive match at the beginning of the current week. The Spurs team appeared to be galvanised by their own spirit as the match went on. However, some people are questioning Ange Postecoglou’s rather gung-ho tactics when losing a second man. Although, the Spurs boss is a great addition to the Premier League, as I see it. Following the intense but thoroughly entertaining clash, there were reports of pride in the THFC dressing room due to their supposed courage.
But why were the Lilywhites so reckless in their approach both on and off the pitch? Kulusevski has tried to describe the reasons. He claims he and his teammates were ‘too hyped up’ for the contest. The Sweden winger wisely blamed, following a fine start to the game, an inability to handle the emotion of the occasion.
