According to football.london reports, Thomas Partey’s father said in an interview that his son had wanted to go to bigger clubs like Juventus and Chelsea. This remark was made a big fuss by fans on the Internet. Recently, Thomas’s spokesperson finally spoke up to let everyone ignore these rumors.
Arsenal signed the Atletico midfielder Thomas Partey at the buzzer before the transfer window closed, and they paid 50 million euros for the termination of the contract.
In addition to Arsenal, Juventus and Chelsea were also Thomas' suitors at the time. Speaking of these two clubs, Thomas’ father said in an interview: “We have been waiting. We hope that a bigger club can throw an olive branch to us. At that time, we already knew that Juventus, Chelsea and other four teams are all I want to sign Thomas."
"I noticed that Thomas actually wants to join a team that can play in the Champions League, but I still suggest whether he should go to a team that can't play in the Champions League now, and then lead them to qualify for the Champions League."
In response, some fans found Thomas’ spokesperson on social media and confirmed to him whether Thomas is really waiting for a bigger club to find himself. He wrote: "Many Chelsea fans are talking about his father actually wanting him to join Chelsea. Can you come out and stop these useless discussions?"
Thomas’ spokesperson then replied: "Please ignore these rumors."
