Will Chelsea fans welcome potential summer signing of winger Corona after agent reveals talks and price to pay?
Chelsea have been told how much it will cost to sign Jesus Corona from FC Porto during the summer transfer window, but will he be welcome?
Frank Lampard is no fool, he knows that this Chelsea side need a bit of money spent on it in order to get the club challenging once again, and adding another winger to the side will be on his agenda this summer.
He may have signed Hakim Ziyech back in February, but with the likes of Willian and Pedro leaving the club, he needs to make sure that those departures are met with arrivals or he will be left short next season.
The 27-year-old is highly rated in Portugal, having bagged two goals and 17 assists from 41 outings this season, and the Mexican’s agent recently admitted that there has been contact with Chelsea.
Now, as well as revealing the negotiations, Matias Bunge also told the Mexican outlet how much Chelsea would have to pay in order to sign Corona.
“The current [release] clause is €30m (£27m),” Matias Bunge told Medio Tiempo.
“From there we’ll see how things happen. Today Jesus has been a fundamental part of Porto for several seasons and we’re going to see where it ends.
“We have spoken with several teams from England, Spain, some from Germany, but well, normally at this time of year we talk more deeply, and in this market the leagues are either resuming or haven’t been able to conclude.
“All the teams are seeing what happens to their sales or their signings so from there the ball continues to roll in the offices.”
£27 million is not alot of money to spend in the football world is it? and considering Corona has been impressing for Porto for the last few seasons, he is surely now ready to make that big move to a big club.
Chelsea will need to sign a number of players this summer, and Corona could be seen as a real transfer bargain if they manage to get a deal done for the price that his agent has revealed.
Lets see if the Blues push through with a transfer deal guys as Frank Lampard knows that he needs to freshen up this side in order to get it progressing in the right direction.
