Chelsea making progress in pursuit of €30 million midfielder

Chelsea is prepared to outbid Barcelona by making the necessary payments for Gabriel Moscardo and quickly reaching an agreement with Corinthians.

Fichajes claims that Chelsea are making progress in their pursuit of 18-year-old Barcelona target Gabriel Moscardo. The kid has established himself as one of South America’s finest players. A number of teams, including the Blaugrana, are vying for his services.

Since the summer, Chelsea had intended to quietly bring one of Brazil’s top athletes to England. They have, however, encountered challenges. After receiving a rave assessment from those in charge of hiring, Gabriel Moscardo came into their radar. The 18-year-old is someone the Blues are desperately trying to sign.

Barcelona was already aware of the 18-year-old player who Xavi Hernandez preferred for the team as the situation became apparent. According to rumours, Deco was in charge and was ready to spend the €30 million necessary to persuade Corinthians.

Any child would imagine playing for one of the Spanish powerhouses. It’s possible that Moscardo had fantasies of wearing the Barcelona uniform. A hypothetical transfer to Camp Nou, meanwhile, might be derailed by the Catalans’ ongoing financial problems.

Chelsea will be looking to outbid Barcelona for signing Moscardo

Despite interest from Chelsea, Arsenal, and Real Madrid, Barcelona were appearing to be the frontrunner to sign him. However, things are now in doubt. Chelsea is looking to move on with its efforts to sign the teenager. They want to bring him to the blue side of London.

Chelsea had previously made a tempting offer of €21 million + €4 million to Corinthians. But in turn they demanded €30 million for Moscardo. The Stamford Bridge side is eager to complete the transfer because interest from other parties, particularly Barcelona, is growing.

Chelsea probably has the €30 million to persuade Corinthians. The Blues are also eager to make the payment. They might also outspend Barcelona in terms of money to acquire Moscardo. Since the arrival of their new owners, Chelsea has performed exceptionally well on the continent. Recently, they brought in Brazilians Andrey Santos and Angelo Gabriel.

Moscardo is a player with immense talent. He has the ability to take control of the central midfield position at any elite team. Chelsea already has a young core of midfielders. But they are eager to add youngsters like the 18-year-old Barcelona target in order to future-proof their young project.
