There have been rumors linking Corinthians midfielder Gabriel Moscardo with a potential departure from the Brazilian club. The 18-year-old prodigious talent, Gabriel Moscardo, has been garnering interest from top clubs, including Barcelona. According to a report from GOAL, Chelsea has reportedly submitted a proposal for the player, valuing around €25 million.

It appears that Chelsea submitted the offer in July. And as of now, they are still waiting for a response from the Brazilian club. However, a decision on the potential transfer could be reached in anticipation of the January transfer window.

Gabriel Moscardo is to depart Corinthians in the upcoming months. However, the competition for his signature is still under discussion. The 18-year-old defensive midfielder, highly regarded across Europe, has the potential to evolve into a crucial player for Chelsea in the long term.

Barcelona is also expressing interest in the 18-year-old. The Spanish club is in the market for a long-term replacement for club legend Sergio Busquets, and Moscardo appears to fit the desired profile.

Can Chelsea pull off the signing of Moscardo?

Moscardo is currently under contract with Corinthians until the summer of 2026. And his existing agreement includes a release clause of €100 million. Corinthians could potentially demand a premium for his transfer. Meaning Chelsea might need to consider increasing their offer to facilitate a deal.

The response from the Brazilian outfit to Chelsea’s offer will be intriguing. Reportedly, Corinthians is holding off on making a decision about the midfielder’s future until after this weekend’s presidential election. The newly elected president could play a pivotal role in either accepting or rejecting Chelsea’s proposal for Moscardo.
