Transfer News: Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe has been linked with a possible move to Chelsea in recent days, which would allow him to reunite with his former coach at the capital club, Thomas Tuchel.
Thomas Tuchel had to rebuild Chelsea’s central defense after being left behind by Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. Although the German is reportedly keen to bring Presnel Kimpembe to Stamford Bridge, Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier appears to have no desire to sell the defender.
During an interview with L’Equipe, Christophe Galtier revealed that he and Kimpembe had ridiculed rumors linking the 26-year-old defender with a move to Chelsea.
“I have read all the news about Kim. We even laughed at it together. He’s a player I like. He’s a direct person in a relationship. What will happen, I don’t know. He is a great defender, a leader,” said Galtier.
Galtier certainly wouldn’t say they want to sell Kimpembe, but with two years remaining on his contract and if Chelsea come up with a suitable offer, it will be interesting to see if the Sports Advisor Luis Campos is willing to let the defender go.
Kimpembe started his senior career with PSG in the 2014-15 season. During his eight years with Les Parisien, he has made 152 appearances in Ligue 1. Last season he played in 30 Ligue 1 matches and scored 1 goal.
