£20m deal won’t affect Chelsea’s main summer saga

The last few days have seen a lot of chatter about Tyler Adams and growing rumours that Chelsea are preparing to trigger his £20m relegation release clause to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

It all seems connected to the deal for Moises Caicedo which has limped along all summer. Now we’re a week away from the season starting and haven’t signed a central midfielder, the alarm bells are ringing.

But the Telegraph report on the Adams chase claims that this move is “independent of the Caicedo pursuit.” The USA star is seen as a useful squad players whether or not we get our main summer prize.

What we want to know is – if this deal is independent of the Caicedo deal, why have we waited so long to do it? Why didn’t we trigger it the moment the Whites went down, giving Adams a full preseason with his new teammates?

It seems to us more that the briefing coming from Chelsea is that they want both players, while the reality is quite clearly different.

  1. It’s clear we desperately want Caicedo, otherwise why have we not just paid £55million for Lavia from Soton? Is it because he only wants to go to Liverpool?
