REPORTS: Chelsea To Tie Up Striker Deal Within Days
Chelsea are ready to steal a march on Brazilian wonderkid Neymar. The Santos striker was widely expected to join Spanish giants Real Madrid this summer after Chelsea refused to match Santos’ valuation of the player.
But, after their initial £30m bid was rejected by the South American giants, Chelsea have reconsidered their offer and are set to increase their original bid and will send “super agent” Pini Zahavi to Brazil to complete the move.
The Mirror reports that Chelsea are expected to complete the move as soon as this weekend with new manager Andre Villas-Boas fully behind the deal.
The 19-year old is expected to reject a move to Real Madrid and join the Blues for a fee in the region of £40million.
