Chelsea fans warn Klopp, Guardiola to stay away from Blues youngster, say loanee “Not For Sale”

April 15th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Chelsea fans have issued a hands-off warning to Manchester City and Liverpool after reports emerged suggesting they were set to bid for Levi Colwill.

Colwill has impressed on loan under Roberto de Zerbi at Brighton this season.

His performances have given rise to interest from both Man City and Liverpool, who are poised to pounce this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

Chelsea’s struggles this season mean the club could face financial difficulty due to missing out on the Champions League and a massive loss in Premier League prize money.

This could consequently lead to a fire sale of stars to ensure the Blues do not breach Financial Fair Play rules.

And 20-year-old Colwill could be the perfect sale to solve this issue as City and the Reds look to freshen up their back line.

Guardiola in particular seems to have taken a liking to him, suggesting Brighton are the best team in the world at building up from the back, something left-footed Colwill is a key component of.

Chelsea fans rushed to social media to share their thoughts on the report.

Many fans were adamant the club would be mad to sell.

One said: “DO NOT SELL THIS GUY AND GIVE HIM A NEW CONTRACT TILL 2030. We should’ve renewed his contract last year before sending him on loan.”

The Standard’s report did also suggest fresh terms were set to be discussed between himself and Chelsea, with his current deal set to expire in 2025.

A second fan added: “Levi Colwill is the best young centre-back in world football. There is always going to be interest for him.

“Let’s just hope that Chelsea are able to keep him, because losing him would be a massive loss.”

While a third commented: “This club have made a lot of mistakes over the last few years but this would undoubtedly be the worst mistake it’s ever made if we allow him to go to Liverpool or Man City. Need to keep Colwill at all costs.”

Others set their eye-watering asking prices for Colwill.

One said: “£150m easy money,” before a second declared: “75m for Liverpool [and] 45m + Foden and Chilwell swap for Man City.”

Another typed: “[£]300m. Only for you my friend @LFC.”
