Chelsea have had their eyes on Real Madrid wing-back Danilo for a few weeks now as it seems like an agreement is now in place between both clubs.
According to Brazilian portal UOL, Real Madrid and Chelsea have found an agreement for Danilo. The Dailystar adds that Chelsea have reportedly agreed to pay 35 million euros for the Brazilian wing-back who Antonio Conte likes very much so.
Let’s not forget that Juventus were also after the player but they have instead put their focus on Douglas Costa (who is set to arrive in Turin soon).
Danilo appeared in 24 games for Real Madrid in 2016-17 as he racked up 1 goal and 3 assists on the season. Chelsea won the EPL title last season as they are now getting ready to compete in the UEFA Champions league next season.
Blues boss Antonio Conte is expecting a few key signings as he wants to improve the quality of his team.
It’s stated that in terms of personal agreements with Chelsea, there will be no complications for Danilo and he is set to go ahead and complete his switch to the Premier League champions.
Initially, Real were keen to take at least €40m from the sale of Danilo, but a compromise of around €31m is likely to be reached.
Danilo, if signed, is set to take the place of Victor Moses at right wing-back.
