The Times: Chelsea in talks over deal for Milan star after Neymar disappointment

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea are in talks to try and complete a move for Rafael Leao before the transfer window closes, according to a report.

The Times are reporting that the Premier League side are in discussions over the potential signing of Leao in what would be a race against time for them before the window closes.

Chelsea are in talks to sign Leao after being told a deal for Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain was not possible, as per the paper, as the Blues want to sign a midfielder and forward before tomorrow.

The feeling is that their attack is not quite up to scratch having invested big money into signing Raheem Sterling but also with Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku having left the club for returns to RB Leipzig and Inter respectively.

Chelsea are also trying to complete a deal for Gvardiol of Leipzig, showing that they are willing to spend big money before the window shuts.

  1. It is Good Opportunity to Sell him at the Moment immidiately to Chelsea and Sign The Number 11 of PSV Endoven.
    It is an Opportunity that will never come again

    1. that is stupid, to sell our most important player on deadline day and then hope to close a replacement on the same day – Scudetto gone!

      Will not happen

    2. You mean Cody Gakpo? That’d be actually a great deal. I like Leao a lot, but I think his shooting skills aren’t the best. It seems that he doesn’t want to renew for now. Also, I’d love to see Dutch players again at Milan as in the old times.

  2. Not going to happen. Its stupid and careless. Our most valuable player being sold on deadline day. Maldini and Massara know better than that

  3. I don’t know why some useless fans always shout sell Loea. For over years now we never had a good player like Leao at our left side. Some fans are better off to support inter Milan. U guys don’t deserve acmilan

  4. Him going at this late stage of the market is a disaster. If that would have happened in the beginning of the transfer market i would have been ok, with proper replacement of course. Just we can’t find a replacement right now. If deppay would come as a replacement from barca and make some money out of the swap, it’ll be a good deal. Of course, i dont know his price tag.

  5. This will not happen . AC Milan not that stupid selling starter player in deadline day market . New owner of course want to make their image good infront of fans not make it worst by selling starter player . Red bird already in control AC Milan not elliot anymore

  6. To many kids these days claimed to be Milanista, but too easy for them declaring other for doesnt deserve to be Milanista just for different opinions. I just becamethe fans for the club only for 20 year or alittle bit more.. and I know there are many who has became milanisna more than I am. Until today, I never said other dosnt fit to be the fan. Everyone hava rights to give their opinions based on their knowledge, so please dont judge other with your limited understanding on other.
