£40 million rated Richarlison announces ‘he would be happy’ to sign for the likes of Chelsea this summer
£40 million rated Watford winger Richarlison has admitted he is keeping a close eye on speculation he could sign for Chelsea this summer, and would be happy to move if an offer arrived.
The Brazilian has set the Premier League alight this season for Watford and has impressed over the last few weeks, scoring five goals in thirteen games on English soil.
That kind of interest has alerted Chelsea to a possible deal, with the Blues reportedly eyeing up a move as a possible replacement for Eden Hazard and Willian.
Brazilian Willian has been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent months, as Jose Mourinho is keen to complete a mega money deal, while Hazard has been heavily tipped to make a switch to Real Madrid.
And speaking on Brazilian TV, the 20-year-old confessed a move has crossed his mind but he is leaving his future in the hands of his agent.
“I want to play, that’s the most important thing for me. On the negotiations, I leave that to the club and the agents,” Richarlison said on the Daily Star website.
“I will not lie. I keep reading the news, but nothing has come to me, unless it got to the club and they did not tell me, but nothing came to me.
“If it comes, I will be happy. It is a sign that I’m working well here at Watford and that they’re keeping an eye on me.”
