Benoit Badiacil has confirmed his move to Chelsea.
On the 5th (Korean time), Chelsea officially announced on the club website that “Bodyasil has signed a seven-and-a-half-year contract with Chelsea.” “I’m happy to come to Chelsea,” Badiasil said. “I want to play in the English Premier League (EPL), the best league in the world.”
Chelsea urgently need to strengthen their defense. The simultaneous departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen last summer left a hole in the club. Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Popana were recruited, but each played below expectations and were not very helpful in defense due to injuries. It was a situation where he was dependent on veteran Thiago Silva. The offense was not good, but the defense was shaken, so Chelsea was staying in the mid-table.
To compete with other teams, Chelsea was thinking of bringing a center back in the winter transfer window. Yosuko Gbardiol was mentioned the most, but after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, an agreement with Leipzig could not be reached due to a higher price. Chelsea turned to Badiasil. Like Gvardiol, he was a left-footed center back and was born in 2001 and had plenty of first-team experience.
Badiasil is another talent developed by AS Monaco, which is called the birthplace of promising players. Badi Asil, who made his professional debut in the 2018-19 season, has a solid physique with a height of 194 cm. Compared to his height, his speed was faster, so his competitiveness was greater, and Monaco cherished him by revealing his strengths in many ways. He also has the specialty of being left-footed. His build-up ability also complied with the modern center back. 토토
He caught the eye of coach Didier Deschamps and was selected for the French national team and made his debut. As time went on, his influence in Monaco’s defense grew. Although it is a replacement for Gbardiol, Badiacil is also a good enough resource. He also fits the direction of Chelsea, which continues to recruit top-notch prospects and prepares for the future with the present.
Chelsea said, “Badiasil is 22 years old, but he played a big role in Monaco. He has played nearly 150 first-team official matches. . It can be used in both 3 and 4 bags. I also have a career in the French national team,” he introduced.
