Every now and again a player comes along who TFF likes so much that we do lots of voluntary promotion for him.
Three summers ago, it was Geoffrey Kondogbia. Here was a youngster who seemingly had the lot. He was strong as an ox, despite his tender years, quick and had a football brain to go with the natural attributes. He was a little like Desailly or Essien. You felt that he could do a top job in several positions and never let you down.
His career has stalled a little of late but he still has the look of a world-class player to us. And latest reports suggest that Chelsea could make a move.
British media outlet, The Mirror, reports:
Chelsea ponder Geoffrey Kondogbia transfer swoop with versatile France star frustrated at lack of Inter Milan action
PREVIEW OF CHELSEA’S WEEKEND GAME IN OUR TFF PODCAST BELOW!
He’s played 5 times for France since his debut in 2013 and has already had two big moves in his career – a 20m move to Monaco in 2013 and a 31m transfer to Inter two years later.
He’s not getting a regular game right now and that has led to the Chelsea rumours.
TFF thinks that this guy is made for the Premier League and whichever English club gets him will be doing superb business. Because, at just 23 years of age, he has ten top years in the tank.
Here are some of his best moments for his clubs and country.
Chelsea fans: a perfect addition?
