Chelsea are ready to battle Manchester United for Arsenal’s rising defender Hector Bellerin next summer, after a reported interest from Barcelona died off last summer.
The full back has been one of the brightest stars from the Emirates this season, following his all action displays for the Gunners.
Sport in Spain are reporting, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is keen to add him to a list of players he wants to see at Chelsea as they seek to recover from the horror showing this season under Antonio Conte.
With Juventus a long term admirer of the Spanish defender, according to the Daily Star, and are also willing to pay up the £40 million Arsenal will demand for Bellerin’s deal to go through.
But Chelsea also face local competition for the 23-year old. Manchester United are also keen to land him with Mourinho eager to replace Matteo Darmian who looks on his way back to Italy after a disappointing spell in England with the Red Devils as Sky Sports reports.
Chelsea told to cough up £100m if they’re serious about Manchester United star
Chelsea reportedly hold an interest in signing Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford this summer, but the best come at a premium cost.
That’s not to say I’d even consider selling Rashford, let alone to a domestic rival. He should be the future of this club, and as the chant goes ‘like Manchester, Rashford is Red.’
However, the Daily Star report Chelsea are among a long list of big-name clubs keen to take Rashford from Old Trafford, although United value the England international at £100 million.
Rashford may not have enjoyed as much playing time as he’d have liked since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January, but he still remains one of the hottest prospects in world football.
The 20-year-old has a real eye for goal and has pace in abundance to get into goal scoring positions. Losing him to Chelsea would be a joke.
Chelsea have also been linked with a move for Anthony Martial, as per the Telegraph, with Eden Hazard’s future in more doubt than ever.
I wouldn’t give that lot a dose of the flu, never mind one or two of our best players.
