Loftus-Cheek transfer fee “shouldn’t be an issue” reports Italian insider

May 6, 2023

Despite being a really useful and versatile home grown player, it looks like Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be sold this summer to balance the books at Chelsea after some serious spending.

The problem, as always when selling to Serie A clubs, is that they don’t have much money. We’ve thought the transfer fee Chelsea would ask might be too steep, but according to Italian journalist Rudy Galetti, who is reporting on the interest, it “shouldn’t be an issue.”

Instead, he points to Loftus-Cheek’s wage demands as a potential “obstacle.”

Milan can certainly afford him if they really want, it’s just a question of whether they think he’s worth the money. Otherwise, it may be that Premier League teams are the only ones capable of tempting RLC to move.
