Roman Abramovich given £54m reassurance message to secure Chelsea’s perfect Real Madrid signing – Jake Stokes

Saul Niguez has given Chelsea the green light to complete the signing of Eder Militao amid fears that Thomas Tuchel will use the Atletico Madrid loanee as a reference point for La Liga.

The 27-year-old midfielder, who has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League, has reassured the European champions that his slow start has been an anomaly, handing Chelsea his blessing as Marina Granovskaia lines up the Real Madrid centre-half in her sights.

Tuchel is eyeing a summer move for Militao as the Blues prepare for a defensive exodus, according to Spanish outlet AS Sport.

The report claims that the German has asked that the 24-year-old, who’s currently valued at £54m by Transfermarkt, be signed in the summer.

Militao is an established fixture in Carlo Ancelotti’s side, having played 90 minutes in all but one of Los Blancos’ La Liga clashes this season.

The Brazilian international has contributed towards Real Madrid’s superb defensive record, warranting Chelsea’s interest.

However, despite the excitement that follows the reports of a potential move to Stamford Bridge from the Santiago Bernabeu, Saul’s slow start to life in England has been a feature in Spain that poses a dilemma.

In an interview with Chelsea’s official website, Saul referenced former Blues star Eden Hazard as an example of a player who’s struggled to adapt to life in a different league.

However, despite having detailed the Belgian’s woes amid his struggles, the Spain international declared that it is easier to adapt to the Premier League when arriving from La Liga, handing Chelsea the green light to complete a deal Militao.

“They are totally different. Over there, it’s much more tactical, whereas here it’s more physical and a bit crazier,” he said.

“There’s more back and forth. It’s less about having control of the game and more about entertaining the fans. You can do things here that you really can’t do in La Liga.

“For example, I was talking to my friends the other day about Eden Hazard when he was here, he was easily one of the best players in the world, and then he goes to La Liga and has his own difficulties because it’s a totally different game.

“Here he had more one-vs-ones and two-vs-ones, but in La Liga, because everyone knows how good his team is and how good he is, other teams make it much more difficult for him.

“Here, it’s happening a bit in reverse, although I think it’s a bit easier to adapt from La Liga to the Premier League than from the Premier League to La Liga.”
