Premier League frontrunners Chelsea are keen to bring Belgian starlet Yuri Tielemans to Stamford Bridge this summer, with the thought of bringing in the 19-year-old really exciting their fans here in the pub!
According to the Express, Conte wants to add the talented Anderlecht midfielder to his ranks over the summer but he’s set to face a transfer tussle with Monaco.
French outfit Le 10 Sport believe that discussions regarding a £1.7million deal plus bonuses are underway between Anderlecht and Monaco, which has thrown Chelsea’s chance of bringing him to England into the dark.
Whilst it’s been a strong season for the Blues in England, it’s been equally as good for Monaco in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, with some of our Chelsea fans believing Tielemans might fancy a move to up-and-coming Monaco instead.
These are exciting times for Monaco, who have been challenging normally dominant PSG all season, whilst their place in the last-four of the Champions League was confirmed this week too.
Monaco have big money behind them and would be able to offer Tielemans a huge salary if he moved to France over England.
