Brighton has admitted to sell more players to Chelsea despite Moises Caicedo chaos.

Brighton Owner Tony Bloom Addresses Chelsea’s Interest in His Squad

Tony Bloom, the owner of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, has clarified that he harbors no “personal” grievances with Chelsea despite their consistent interest in his team’s players and staff. Chelsea made substantial investments of £135 million in Moises Caicedo and Robert Sanchez during the recent summer transfer window. Negotiations over the Ecuadorian midfielder, Caicedo, took several weeks, with a last-minute attempt by Liverpool to secure his signing. However, Chelsea’s pursuit of Caicedo was ultimately successful.

In recent years, several players and staff, including Marc Cucurella, Billy Gilmour, Levi Colwill, and former Chelsea manager Graham Potter, have transitioned between Brighton and Chelsea. Despite the frequent transactions, Bloom maintains that he has no reservations about conducting further business with Chelsea in the future.

Dealing with Each Situation Individually

Bloom emphasized that each situation is evaluated independently and should be considered on its own merits. He highlighted that while losing six staff members when Graham Potter departed was significant, the club approaches each deal on a case-by-case basis, irrespective of the club involved. He stressed that personal considerations do not factor into the decision-making process and that the primary concern is the best interest of the football club.

Openness to Future Dealings

Bloom acknowledged the possibility of future dealings with Chelsea or other clubs and emphasized that it’s not personal. He stated that the club strives to retain its best players but recognizes that this may not always be feasible in the football world. He expressed a preference for other clubs showing interest in Brighton’s players and staff, indicating that it reflects positively on the club’s talent.

Evan Ferguson’s Emergence

The emergence of young talent like Evan Ferguson at Brighton has attracted attention, with rumors circulating about Chelsea’s interest in the player, who is reportedly valued at £120 million. Tony Bloom expressed his excitement about Ferguson’s potential but refrained from putting additional pressure on the young striker. He praised Ferguson’s temperament and development while allowing others to discuss his potential in more detail.
