Watch Chelsea transfer target Christopher Nkunku blow up BALLOON in bizarre goal celebration after pulling it from sock


CHRISTOPHER NKUNKU blew up a balloon to celebrate the bursting of Shakhtar Donetsk’s bubble in one of the strangest goal celebrations in history.

The RB Leipzig striker showed why Chelsea are willing to spend big on him with the opener in Wednesday night’s 4-0 Champions League win.

Christopher Nkunku celebrated his goal with his Leipzig teammates and then stood in the corner to blow up a balloon for his own special moment.

And to add to her silky footwork, she had another trick in her boots, as she pulled a red balloon from her sock.

He inflated it as his teammates mobbed him for the corner flag, then held it between his teeth and extended his arms to complete the pose.

Fans were bemused and amused by Nkunku’s antics.

And probably the best social media explanation for his behavior was this: “He loves the movie IT and being the first game since Halloween he decided to blow up a red balloon that is synonymous with the movie.”

With Chelsea seemingly certain to sign Nkunku ahead of other admirers such as Arsenal, one fan suggested: “When you’ve passed your medical for your big move next summer.”

And how about this: “To celebrate the mighty Arsenal being top of the league?”

A politically minded prankster posted: “In protest against inflation.”

The truth, however, was sweeter than fiction.

French journalist Fabrice Hawkins revealed that Nkunku had promised his two-year-old son that he would want a balloon to celebrate if he scored.

Nkunku and Croatia centre-back Josko Gvardiol could drift to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

His future is certainly up in the air as Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly wants to continue spending big.

But it looks very good if he believes he can land England midfielder Jude Bellingham for the £87million the Blues are willing to pay.

That’s because Borussia Dortmund are said to want close to £130million for the 19-year-old, who is also being chased by Liverpool and Real Madrid.
