Graham Potter

Craque Neto has been asserting that Chelsea successfully secures a deal to sign Gabriel Moscardo. According to SCCP News, although the specific fee remains undisclosed, a agreement has been there to bring in the highly-rated young player.

Chelsea has been actively pursuing Moscardo since the previous summer, where their attempt to secure his services did not materialize.

During that period, reports suggested that Chelsea had initiated negotiations with a proposed fee in the vicinity of £26 million. Despite these efforts, the deal did not come to fruition. There is widespread speculation that Chelsea is encountering notably increased competition for the youngster. Compared to their previous acquisitions in this category.

Barcelona is said to be intensely interested in the prospect of signing Moscardo. Thus, envisioning the teenager as the successor to play in the Sergio Busquets role. Nevertheless, it appears that Chelsea now holds the advantage in finalizing a deal for Moscardo. Neto has conveyed to SCCP news that an agreement has been reached between Chelsea and Corinthians.

What did the reports say about Chelsea signing Moscardo?

Reports said:

“Gabriel Moscardo, 18-year-old midfielder from Corinthians, sold to Chelsea. Neto did not provide the value, but it should exceed R$100 million. This amount will be placed on Duilio Monteiro Alves’ 2023 balance sheet, regardless of the payment method.”

Although there are no uncertainties regarding the talent and future potential of the Brazilian, some supporters may find themselves questioning the decision to sign another midfielder if the reports are accurate. Considering the presence of Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo, the Blues already have midfield options in the form of Romeo Lavia, Lesley Ugochukwu, Andrey Santos, and Cesare Casadei within the squad.

Regrettably, the latter two, Andrey Santos and Cesare Casadei, are presently experiencing challenging loan spells. Hence, this adversity could potentially impact their prospects at Stamford Bridge.
