Transfer News: Chelsea Favorite To Sign Brazilian Striker, Milan Rejected Chelsea €100m Bid For Leao-Dario Donato

Chelsea Favorite To Sign Brazilian Striker

Chelsea have received a huge boost in their endeavours to add Palmeiras striker Endrick, as the striker is interested in joining the London giants.

Endrick’s performances have put him on the radars of every big team around Europe starting from the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona to PSG, Liverpool, Man United and Chelsea, among several others.

However, it looks like it is the Blues who are making concerted efforts to capture the 16-year-old centre-forward’s signing.

The London giants reportedly held negotiations with the South American centre-forward, his agents and his parents about a potential transfer to Chelsea in the near future.

Milan rejected Chelsea’s €100m bid for star forward

AC Milan rejected a big bid from Chelsea for Rafael Leao but they face a difficult task if they are to renew him, a journalist claims.

According to what is being reported by Mediaset and Calciomercato.com journalist Dario Donato, Chelsea did make an offer worth €100m to sign Leao in the summer transfer window which was rejected by Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara.

However, their real task will come now because the entourage of the former Lille star have made it known that a base salary of €7.5m net per season will be needed to even begin renewal talks.

Lucas Moura could leave Spurs next summer

Brazilian publication UOL have claimed that Lucas Moura could join Sao Paulo next summer after his contract with Tottenham runs out.

Aston Villa (The Telegraph) and Newcastle United (Football Insider) were credited with an interest in Moura on transfer deadline day but the winger ended up staying put at Tottenham.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold previously revealed that although the former PSG man’s contract at Spurs runs out in 2023, the North London club have the option to extend it by another 12 months.

If UOL’s latest update is to be believed, as things stand, Moura’s preference would be to leave on a free transfer next summer.
