Chelsea fans eagerly await Friday for major defender news amidst conflicting reports

Caughtoffside have just published a chunk of Fabrizio Romano’s latest Substack exclusive, and there’s full confirmation about his thoughts on Trevoh Chalobah.

The defender has long been linked with a move to a few different clubs in January, and Romano insists that’s still the most likely outcome. His comments made a reunion with Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich seem the most likely option:

“I have told you multiple times that Trevoh Chalobah will not stay at Chelsea beyond the January transfer window as he wants to play regular football. The idea of the club and player are in line and they will try to find the best solution for everyone during the upcoming transfer window.

There are rumours about many clubs being interested in the player from England and Germany. I want to clarify that for Bayern Munich, Chalobah is no longer a priority. He was a priority on Deadline Day this summer as he had previously played under Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea but the deal collapsed because of the different closing times of the transfer windows in each country.

There are possibilities in other countries for Chalobah in January, including England, so let’s see what happens.”

None of this lines up with what we’ve heard from other places – with increasing reports that Chalobah (who was only supposed to miss a month or two when he first went down in August) has had yet another injury setback.

It will be very interesting to see what Mauricio Pochettino says in his press conference on Friday. After all the talk of a new injury for Chalobah, he will certainly be asked about it by someone, and he may well have to let the cat out of the bag.
