Chelsea see staggering deal rejected for in-form star

Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern think the league is going to be on the way to Stamford Bridge sooner rather than later and you can certainly see why.

Indeed, the Blues have been the best team this season and head to Manchester United this weekend in search for their latest step towards glory.

Winning at Old Trafford would certainly be a big statement but, whilst they’re looking for success on the pitch, they have received a knock back off of it.

Indeed, as per Italian outlet Tuttosport – via The Express – the Blues have seen a whopping deal rejected for in form Torino star Andrea Belotti, as they look to bolster their options over the coming seasons.

The young Italian has been brilliant for Torino for the past couple of years and that has duly meant that his reputation has sky-rocketed.

It makes sense, then, that the likes of Chelsea are interested but it appears their £51 million up-front offer, plus a potential £34 million in add-ons, has been deemed not good enough.

Huge money already, then, but it seems the Londoners are going to have to up the stakes even further.

Thoughts, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
