Jan 5, 2023

Chelsea have announced the signing of 21-year-old Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile on a seven-and-a-half year deal for £35million.

 

Chelsea had reached an agreement to sign Badiashile earlier this week – and agreed personal terms for a long-term contract.  He arrived in the capital and completed his medical before completing his transfer.

 

The French centre-back was left out of Monaco’s side to face Brest on New Year’s Day as details were finalised ahead of his departure to London.
