Chelsea Sign French Defender Benoit Badiashile From Monaco For £35m


Chelsea have signed 21-year-old Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile on a seven-and-a-half-year contract for £35 million.

Chelsea had agreed to sign Badiashile earlier this week, and had also agreed on personal terms for a long-term contract. He arrived in the capital and went through his medical before proceeding with his transfer.

The French center-back was left out of Monaco's New Year's Day match against Brest as details for his trip to London were finalized.

The defender told the club website: 'I’m very happy to be here at Chelsea. I’m so excited to start playing for this club. I can’t wait to see the fans and start playing in the best league in the world.'

Benoit Badiashile made his Ligue 1 debut for the Monegasque club in 2018 aged just 17 and went on to make 20 appearances in his inaugural campaign with the club.  Since then, he has made a total of 135 appearances for Monaco and was part of the team that reached the French Cup final in 2021.
