Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are sitting up with interest at the latest claim from Goal.com.
They note that the Blues could well rival Arsenal and Roma for the player dubbed the crown jewel of La Masia.
Barcelona B player Antonio Sanabria has made it clear that he feels his future lies somewhere other than the Camp Nou, and has rejected terms of a new deal.
He is now one of the hottest properties in Europe and is being courted by the likes of Arsenal and Serie A side Roma.
Now it seems that Jose Mourinho has decided to throw his hat into the ring for the young star and could well look to activate the reported £2.5 million release clause in the 17-year-old Paraguayan international’s current contract.
As our landlord quips, Arsene Wenger is well known for bringing young players though the club and giving them their chance in the first team, and it is this route that our punters feel would be best for the young star.
As we have seen with a whole host of former young starlets who made the move to Stamford Bridge, they have not exactly been given the most opportunities to shine.
Who will the young star chose to develop his career with? Let us know your thoughts below.
