Chelsea ‘to watch’ £105M target at World Cup ahead of potential move
Chelsea will be keeping a close eye on Portugal forward Rafael Leao during the World Cup, says journalist Pete O’Rourke.
With Blues boss Graham Potter looking to add some serious quality to that attack in the coming transfer windows – there has been alot of speculation that the Premier League giants are keen on Leao
AC Milan are reportedly preparing themselves for big-money offers in the region of £105million for their star man in January – and it seemed that Chelsea were the only serious contenders for the winger
Man City have entered the chase to try and sign the gifted attacker – however – so Chelsea FC will now have the best side in Englan competing for the services of Leao – if you believe the reports.
Now – amid all the speculation O’Rourke has opened up and claimed that Chelsea will be keeping a close eye on the Milan star during the World Cup in Qatar.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the journalist said: “I’m sure they’ll be keeping a close eye on him during the World Cup, and if he does really well for Portugal, Chelsea will be very keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
“But on the flip side of that, it will probably only increase his price tag as well if he does have a good World Cup with Portugal.”
Chelsea will not want to hear that Man City are now in the chase to sign the player – especially as it could now bump up his asking price in the coming windows
But if there is anybody that is able to compete with City for players – it will be Chelsea FC – they have the money and the pedigree to tempt him to Stamford Bridge guys
So if he impresses at the World Cup – it will be interesting to see just what happens and if Chelsea do actually make a move
