Missed Opportunity: Edson Alvarez’s Almost Transfer to Chelsea

West Ham United midfielder Edson Alvarez recently shared a surprising revelation about a missed opportunity to sign for Chelsea. The Mexican international, who joined West Ham from Ajax last summer, disclosed that he was just one hour away from completing a transfer to Chelsea before the deal fell through. Alvarez recounted how he had a plane waiting for him at the airport to finalize the contract, but a sudden change of heart from Ajax prevented the move from happening. Despite the disappointment, Alvarez has been a key player for West Ham, stepping into Declan Rice’s role in midfield and making a significant impact on the team.

While Chelsea missed out on Alvarez, they have not held back in strengthening their midfield with other high-profile signings. The club has made significant investments in players like Enzo Fernandez, Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia, Lesley Ugochukukwu, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Cesare Casadei over the past 18 months. As the summer transfer window approaches, Chelsea fans can expect more news and speculation surrounding the club, including discussions about potential transfers and the future of manager Mauricio Pochettino.
