Reports have emerged that Chelsea FC have completed the signing of Romeo Rabia.
The Athletic said on the 16th (Korean time), “Chelsea have agreed to sign Rabia with Southampton FC for up to £58 million.” The base transfer fee is £53 million, with a bonus of £5 million. Labia left only the medical test until he became a Chelsea player.스포츠토토
Rabia, who went through the youth teams of RSC Anderlecht and Manchester City, made his professional debut for Manchester City in the 2021-2022 season. He moved to Southampton last season, but as the team was relegated, he became a major recruiting target for English Premier League (EPL) teams this season.
In a situation where Liverpool FC and Chelsea competed for his scout, Chelsea became the winner. Previously, Chelsea had also won Liverpool and Moises Caisedo’s scout. A new EPL transfer fee record of 115 million pounds (approximately 195 billion won) occurred.
In the match for Kaisedo, he was able to sign because the player wanted Chelsea, but it is known that Labia also preferred to go to Chelsea.
