Antonio Nusa has spoken out over his failed deadline day move to CHELSEA after the Blues had a £23m bid rejected
The club smashed the British transfer record to sign Moises Caicedo from Brighton and also brought in Romeo Lavia, Christopher Nkunku, Cole Palmer, Axel Disasi, Nicolas Jackson, Lesley Ugochukwu, Robert Sanchez and Djordje Petrovic as well as Brazilian duo Deivid Washington and Angelo.
However, that did not stop the board from trying to get a very late transfer deal done for the exciting Nusa, who has been making a real name for himself after making the move to Club Brugge.
Nusa, 18, moved to Club Brugge in 2021 and has made a total of 46 appearances to date for the Belgian side, and he has now spoken about his failed move to Stamford Bridge in the summer window.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID –
He Said: ‘I already knew that it wasn’t going to happen now.
‘But then the money came on the table. Then it is seen in a slightly different way.
‘We had to have another conversation when the money arrived, but we were on the same page, so there was no problem there.’
Nusa would have been one of those signings that are simply not ready for a move to the Premier League, that are not ready to make an impact at Stamford Bridge and would have probably been sent out on loan.
It would have been another waste of £23 million from that board, who seem to think that their new policy of signing talents is the way to go, and quite honestly, fans are probably relieved that he was not signed.
