Chelsea Set To Trump Man Utd To £20m English Starlet
Chelsea are preparing a £20million bid for highly rated Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.
Recent reports are claiming billionaire owner Roman Abramovich has given Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas the all clear to make a move for the exciting 17-year old.
A Stamford Bridge insider says hot prospect Barkley is topping Chelsea’s January wish list, with the Blues desperate to land the England U21 star. In order to temp the Merseysiders in to a sale, Chelsea are prepared to loan back Barkley to the Toffees for 18 months.
Both Manchester Untied and Manchester City are tracking the youngster but Chelsea hope the option to loan the youngster back to Everton will be enough to persuade David Moyes to part ways with the starlet as Andre Villas-Boas continues his strategy of bringing in exciting youngsters to Stamford Bridge.
