Chelsea vs AC Milan: Battle for Barcelona starlet heats up

Battle of the heavyweights

Chelsea are set to go head to head with AC Milan in the battle to sign Barcelona starlet Denis Suarez in January or in the summer transfer window.

The Spaniard has been in and out of the team so far this season, unable to nail down a regular spot.

Though, that hasn’t stopped his suitors from pursuing a deal.

It has been suggested that Suarez does not have a place in Ernesto Valverde’s plans and will be free to go.

With that, Chelsea and AC Milan are set to fight for his signature.

Chelsea vs AC Milan

That is because reports from the Express have suggested that both Chelsea and AC Milan are interested in signing the player.

Maurizio Sarri is said to be an admirer of the player and even tried to sign him at Napoli.

Now, he’s looking to sign him for Chelsea.

Though, there will be competition from AC Milan who are said to want him on loan in January with an option to buy in the summer.

The Express also claim that due to Barcelona’s desire to sell outright in January, Chelsea have the upper hand due to their financial strength.

It is also said that Suarez is open to the idea of returning to the Premier League.

The midfielder was on the books of Manchester City until 2013.

All considered Chelsea could have the upper hand in any deal.

Now, it’s just a case of agreeing a deal with Barcelona.
