Reports suggest that Chelsea might include their news signings for this season’s Champions League second leg which is due to resume in August.
The UEFA Executive Committee meeting will decided whether to allow new signings in the Champions League and Europa League or not. The decision on venue and date of the Leagues might be discussed in the meeting.
In case the meeting about the player registration favors the new signings, then the English side Chelsea would be more benefited. Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech has already been given farewell by the club and will be joining the Blues.
Similarly, Leipzig’s forward Timo Werner is due to join the London side as the club is ready to pay the player’s release clause. Werner to Chelsea got more pace when the news about Werner withdrawing his name from Leipzig’s Champions League arose.
Werner has fired his current side RB Leipzig to the quarter-final of the Champions League but he seems to leave the club. He is on the verge of completing a £53million move to Chelsea after agreeing a five-year contract worth £200,000-a-week.
With most of the players’ contract expiring in June or July, some of the clubs in Champions League and Europa League might lose their main man who were supposed to play at least this season’s UEFA’s tournament.
Therefore, for their replacement, the UEFA provide a favorable alternatives for the clubs and among which, registration of new players in the team would be the best.
Chelsea has hefty task in the second leg against the German power-house having lost 0-3 at Stamford Bridge. However, the Blues might get some major boost by the addition of Ziyech and Timo Werner (if the Blues seal the deal).
