Above is a tweet saying Chelsea of the English Premier League will play in Seattle this summer.
No confirmation of Sounders as opponent. However, the Sounders have promised one big-name friendly opponent this season. And an originally scheduled July 18 home MLS home match against Real Salt Lake was moved to October to accommodate a friendly. So ...
However, the Sounders say nothing has been confirmed. And this would be a rematch, as Chelsea visited Seattle in 2009, with the English side winning 2-0. And with a world of soccer clubs out there, I'm not sure another Chelsea visit will stir the faithful much.
Never miss a local story.
Will report more as I can.
