Report: Chelsea to Back Out of Karim Benzema Deal Due to Suspected Connections to Jhon Duran

<p>Chelsea will be hoping to give up on signing Karim Benzema of Al Ittihad in favor of pursuing Jhon Duran of Aston Villa. According to recent reports, the French striker may be available for a loan agreement that lasts until the conclusion of the current campaign. Several massive European teams, including Chelsea, expressed interest in it. Benzema is reportedly not joining The Blues because the team wants to “avoid costly moves for older players,” according to reports. According to The Athletic, Chelsea has reportedly conducted negotiations regarding a deal with Villa striker Duran and is contemplating signing him.</p>

<p>Karim Benzema left the Spanish club after 14 years in June 2023 to go to Saudi Arabia. As a proficient striker, Benzema made a name for himself with the Los Blancos. In 648 appearances, he won five UEFA Champions League championships in the Spanish city. Benzema assisted teammates 165 times and scored an incredible 354 goals in those contests. In the 2021–22 season, he won both the Ballon d’Or award and his fifth Champions League title.</p>
<p>Following that season, it was revealed that Karim Benzema would be leaving the team to play for Al Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League. Chelsea could find his sudden availability in Saudi Arabia after just six months appealing, but the team would prefer to invest in a younger player. The team is now in desperate need of a striker since players like Armando Broja and Cristopher Nkunku are out due to injury.</p>
<p>Jhon Duran, a striker for Aston Villa, fills in for Chelsea in this situation. The Colombian forward became a Villa player in January of last year. Londoners generally see the 20-year-old as one of their upcoming talents. Chelsea would be ready to strike if the “price reduces to a level they deem fair,” according to The Athletic. The likelihood that The Blues would acquire Duran before the deadline would also increase with the sale of Armando Broja.</p>
<p>It has been difficult for Jhon Duran to get playing time and goals since moving to Villa Park. In order for their player to abide with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability regulations, the club would now be willing to negotiate a contract. Due to the fact that head coach Unai Emery is not the greatest fan of Duran, Villa would need to raise money before the conclusion of the current campaign. Duran is now lower in the club’s hierarchy than Ollie Watkins.</p>
