Monaco Outbids Chelsea by ‘€1 Million’ in Race for Deivid Washington

Chelsea’s pursuit of Brazilian talent Deivid Washington has taken an unexpected turn. Despite the Blues’ interest, AS Monaco, have emerged as a strong contender.

When Chelsea initially tabled their bid for Deivid Washington, it seemed like a straightforward process. However, reposts suggest that Monaco has offered €1 million more than Chelsea.

The French club’s keen interest and higher financial offer have added complexity to the situation, making the deal anything but ordinary. This development poses a challenge for Santos.

Monaco to Battle Chelsea for Deivid Washington

Deivid Washington’s potential is undeniable, as highlighted by his two goals in just 9 Serié A appearances so far. Both Adi Hütter and Mauricio Pochettino, view the young Brazilian as a valuable addition to their respective squads.

Thiago Scuro, Monaco’s recently appointed sporting director, has taken a proactive stance in this transfer saga. Scuro’s trip to Brazil to meet with Washington and his family showcases Monaco’s seriousness in acquiring the young striker. This face-to-face interaction underscores the personal touch that Monaco aims to bring to their negotiations, potentially swaying Washington’s decision.

Chelsea’s Ambitious Plans

Chelsea’s bid for Deivid Washington stands at an impressive €15 million(£12million) and a combined €19 million(£17million) with bonuses. These bonuses will be triggered if Chelsea manages to qualify for the Champions League at least once in the next five years.

Despite Monaco’s competitive bid, Chelsea remains confident in their pursuit of the young striker. The Blues’ strategy includes sending Washington on loan to Strasbourg for the upcoming season. This move is part of Chelsea’s broader plan to solidify their roster with exceptional talents.

The Blues outmaneuvered several top European clubs to secure the Brazilian’s signature. Washington will be Chelsea’s second signing from Santos this summer, following the acquisition of winger Angelo.

Chelsea’s ambitious transfer endeavors don’t end with Deivid Washington. The club is on the cusp of securing Leeds United’s Tyler Adams through a £20 million release clause activation.

Furthermore, Chelsea aims to outmaneuver Liverpool in the pursuit of Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia, emphasizing their commitment to bolstering their midfield options.
