Chelsea Agree Terms With Defender Abdul Rahman, Express Interest in Donsah

Chelsea confirmed that the club accepted the personal terms with Augsburg left-back Abdul Rahman and also expressed an interest in Cagliari midfielder Godfred Donsah, FoxNews reported.

Jose Mourinho needs to sign Rahman as a replacement for Filipe Luis, who rejoined Atletico Madrid last month, and it had been reported that Chelsea had agreed a fee with Augsburg for Rahman.

The 21-year-old’s agent, however, asserts that while personal terms have already been agreed, a contract between the two clubs is yet to be finalized.

“It is only the clubs that have to find an agreement,” Sascha Empacher told Bild.

“We on our side are agreed.”

Cagliari president Tommaso Giulini, meanwhile, has ruled out, allowing Donsah to leave the club this summer despite interest from Chelsea and Juventus.

“We had a chat a few weeks ago with Juventus and Chelsea, but I am stunned by all these rumors around him,” Giulini said. “The lad needs to grow up with us.

“We have many other players on low wages and their contracts will be renewed at the right time, including Donsah’s.

“We received a request to attend a meeting via a lawyer, but I am accustomed to doing things a different way. As soon as the right moment comes, we’ll be happy to renew his contract.”

Juventus also offered former Parma striker Alberto Cerri as a part of a deal to sign Donsah, but, the terms didn’t interest Guilini.

He added: “It’s a paid loan, we cannot settle for a dry loan. Cerri may be a good player and if our coach needs him in our time, then we’ll try and complete the operation positively.”
