Former PSV Eindhoven winger Kenneth Perez has condemned the Dutch club’s decision to reject Chelsea’s offer for Ibrahim Sanagare this summer.

Chelsea have made nine new additions to their squad in the recently concluded transfer window. They spent a significant amount of money to sign Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Blues were ready to invest more money in the final days of the window, with a midfielder high on their wishlist. They eventually signed Denis Zakaria on loan from Juventus but the Swiss wasn’t their favorite target.

Chelsea had a €50m bid rejected by Ajax for Edson Alvarez and were forced to look elsewhere. They also considered a move for Sangare from PSV in the final stretch of the window.

The Stamford Bridge side have reportedly approached the Eredivisie club with an offer well in excess of €40m. However, they were rejected again, with Ruud van Nistelrooy’s side refusing the offer.

Perez has now criticized PSV’s decision to reject a bid worth €50m for the Ivory Coast international. The Dane believes that turning down such an offer is ‘criminal’ on the part of his former club. He said on ESPN Netherlands [via Inside Futbol]:

“I don’t agree with that. If you pass up a €50m bid for Sangare, I think that’s almost criminal.

Sangare, who joined PSV from French club Toulouse in 2020, recently signed a contract extension with the Eredivisie side. He is now under contract with the Dutch side until the end of the 2026-27 season.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea intend to rekindle their interest in the 24-year-old. The midfielder has made 11 appearances in all competitions for Nistelrooy’s side this season, scoring three goals in the process.

A lot has changed at Chelsea since the end of the window

Chelsea have had a disappointing start to their 2022-23 Premier League campaign. They currently sit seventh in the table with 10 points, having won three, lost two and drawn in one of their six games so far.

Les Bleus also got their UEFA Champions League season off to a bad start, losing 1-0 to Dinamo Zagreb. The defeat saw the club unplug Thomas Tuchel, who led them to glory in Europe last year.

Graham Potter has since replaced the German tactician as boss of the London giants. His first game in charge didn’t go to plan as they were held 1-1 by Red Bull Salzburg last week.
