Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United have 12 days to trigger Timo Warner’s release clause if he wants to sign for less than 50 50 million. The € 55m (£ 49m) release clause of German international striker RB Leipzig expires on Monday, June 15.
Warner was persuaded to join Chelsea after receiving phone calls from Frank Lampard almost daily over the past few weeks. Frank Lampard and Peter Chech made a secret pre-lockdown trip to Germany that helped Chelsea persuade Timo Warner to move to Stamford Bridge to keep Liverpool and Manchester United afloat.
Chelsea plan to balance the book this summer and will consistently exit Warner after signing for 54 54 million. Chelsea’s bid to cut players’ salaries has been shattered after Warner’s landing.
Ben Chilwell – Leicester are ready to resist any bid for Ben Chilwell this summer and will insist that England are not for international sale.
Jadon Sancho – Real Madrid have entered the race for Manchester United and Chelsea goal Jadon Sancho, according to reports
Federico Bernardechi – Juventus winger Bernardechi is set to move to the Premier League this summer with Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal who are watching the situation.
Philippe Coutinho – Chelsea face the possibility of not being able to sell the Brazilian this summer, so Barcelona may take Coutinho on loan.
