Chelsea are once again in the market for future stars across the world of football.
The blues are back in South America scouting for upcoming talent to join the likes of Angelo, Andrey Santos and Kendry Paez.
According to SPORT, Chelsea have ‘displaced one of the executives of the legal team’ to Sau Paulo with the overall intention of paying the termination (release) clause which stands at €60m for Estevao Willian.
The report also goes onto say that Laurence Stewart and one other executive held a meeting back in October whilst trying to lower the price. Palmeiras held ‘firm’.
With such a large sum of money it will be interesting if the reports start to come in confirming this news.
This is the second report in a short space of time confirming the blues interest in Estevao Willian.
Further on from the Goal Brazil and SPORT report, Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Chelsea are working on the deal.
🚨🔵 Chelsea keep working on Estevão Willian deal. Discussions taking place since October as 2007 Brazilian talent remains high on club’s list.
