Pochettino desperate to get Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde

Reports say Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino reportedly persuaded the club to pursue the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde during the upcoming summer transfer window. According to the report, Chelsea is considering making a bid of approximately £85 million to secure the services of Federico Valverde. The Uruguayan international played a crucial role in Real Madrid’s recent achievements.

There is a belief that Real Madrid considers Valverde as an indispensable player. They are not willing to entertain any offers for him. The question remains whether Pochettino can utilize his influence and persuade Valverde to work with him.

How can Valverde improve Chelsea?

Valverde possesses versatility, excelling in both the box-to-box midfield position and as a winger. In the previous year’s Champions League Final, the 24-year-old showcased his adaptability with starting on the right wing. Meanwhile, he provided the assist for Vinicius Jr.’s decisive goal. He is regarded as a manager’s ideal player, not only due to his flexibility. But also because of his exceptional ability to execute tactical instructions on the field.

Valverde possesses several notable attributes. These include his strong running ability, impressive shooting skills, proficiency in both short and long passing, adeptness in recovery runs, and a capability to effectively fulfill the role of two players on the field. Should Pochettino and Chelsea manage to secure Valverde’s signature, he would be an excellent fit for the attacking number eight role in Pochettino’s system at Stamford Bridge.

Indeed, securing a deal for Valverde may prove to be challenging due to Real Madrid’s high valuation of the player. Additionally, the Uruguyan has been regularly in the team’s lineup, which further adds to the difficulty of the potential transfer.
