Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeing a bit fragile today after celebrating their FA Cup victory over Manchester City long into the night but transfer reports have sparked them into life.
The Sun reports that Chelsea have stolen a march on their rivals in pursuit of Schalke’s exceptional German international Leroy Sane, who’s attracted vast interest from across Europe with his impressive performances this term.
Sane is one of the most highly-rated young talents in European football with the likes of Arsenal, Barcelona and Real Madrid all keen on his services, with the youngster already having a wealth of experience for Schalke and his international side.
Whilst a battle is likely to take place for his services this summer, Chelsea are in pole position to seal a £40m deal for the German star after he was recommended to Blues owner Roman Abramovich directly.
Chelsea are due for a massive overhaul this summer when the predecessor to Guus Hiddink is appointed and our landlord believes signing Sane would be a stellar addition, giving them something to build a new team upon.
Blues fans, should Sane be a prime target this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
