Chelsea’s 19-year-old shot-stopper Marcin Bulka has reached a pre-contract three-year agreement with the Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain and his free transfer to Thomas Tuchel’s side will soon be announced.
Bulka’s transfer has been a long time coming after sources first indicated the star was keen to move to Le Parc des Princes two months ago as legendary Italian keeper Gianluigi Buffon left Paris Saint-Germain in search of opportunities to play football somewhere else.
The talented Polish will come in to provide competition for the French star Alphonse Areola after Paris Saint-Germain won an intense competition for his services, promising the ace a chance to play at the highest level.
Chelsea were interested in renewing their deal for their academy shot-stopper of three years, but the landing of 24-year-old Kepa Arrizabalaga the previous summer left Marcin feeling unsure about breaking through at Chelsea.
Marcin featured heavily in the pre-season campaign last summer, playing three times and making an impression under former manager Maurizio Sarri, but his deal situation meant he did not make his competitive debut.
Chelsea purchased Bulka as a 16-year-old as he grew up in the La Liga giants Barcelona’s academy base in his homeland at FCB Escola Varsovia, before signing a three-year deal with the Blues.
Meanwhile, the west Londoners are preparing to complete negotiations to sign Derby County head coach and legendary ex-player Frank Lampard as the successor for the Italian tactician Maurizio Sarri, who has been named the new manager at the Serie A side Juventus.
