Chelsea Initiates talks to extend Bashir Humphreys contract 

Chelsea is in discussions with Bashir Humphreys to extend his contract.

According to Evening Standard, Chelsea have begun negotiations with Bashir Humphreys to extend his contract and subsequently loan him out.

The teenager has been monitored by numerous clubs, including Coventry City, but the Blues’ top priority is to extend his contract, which expires in 2024, before sending him out on loan.

Mauricio Pochettino was captivated by the 20-year-old during all preseason contests in which he participated. 

He was a member of the Premier League Summer Series champions in the United States.

On the preseason tour, only Christopher Nkunku, Raheem Sterling, Kepa Arrizabalaga, and Conor Gallagher played more games than Humphreys.

 Chelsea hopes to send him out on loan so he can gain more experience and eventually play for the West Londoners.

The Blues have been impressed by the center-back’s performance during his six-month loan to Paderborn, and he has been given the freedom to choose his next club.

However, Humphreys is not the only inexperienced player to be loaned out; Andrey Santos and Cesare Casadei are also eligible for loaning.

Ian Maatsen will remain with the club for the upcoming season, as the Argentine manager views him as the club’s cornerstone for the upcoming campaign.

 He is capable of playing as both a left-back and a left-winger.

Chelsea is in contract renewal discussions with Bashir Humphrey.

Pochettino would believe Humphreys has what it takes to become a club defender in the future based on his preseason tour performance.

Humphreys was one of the young players who relished the tour and demonstrated his talent, but he has room for improvement, as does every other player in his age group.

At the age of 20, he exudes serenity and composure in and out of possession and appears in control of himself even in difficult situations. 

It would be advantageous to loan him to a Premier League team so that he can gain experience in the league prior to rejoining the Blues and asserting a future claim in the center of the defense.

After Wesley Fofana’s ACL injury, it would not have been a terrible idea to retain his services, but since then we have signed Axel Disasi. 

Unless there was an injury crisis at the club, Humphreys would have had difficulty receiving playing time.
