It’s been a busy news cycle for Chelsea.
Not only have they played out a sensational FA Cup semi-final in a 4-2 victory at Wembley on Saturday.
But Chelsea have also been linked with two more transfer targets and got some potentially good news regarding Eden Hazard.
British media outlet, The Express passed on news from Italy this weekend that Chelsea are keen on the services of a really promising winger:
CHELSEA will reportedly offer Federico Bernardeschi a £4.2million contract to quit Italian football for the Premier League.
The 23-year-old Italy winger has seven caps for his country and looks as if he has the speed of feet and intelligence to be a smash hit in the Premier League. Quite ho Chelsea would squeeze him into a side which already has Pedro, Willian and Hazard to choose from is open to debate.
Another tabloid passes on a Spanish media report that Chelsea are also keen on the brilliant Monaco star Bernardo Silva. But any pursuit of the player could end in disapointment. The Star writes:
Silva has attracted interest from the Premier League big boys, with Chelsea and Manchester United both reportedly keen.
However, according to transfer outlet Don Balon, his agent Mendes has opened talks with Real.
Silva has been a vital cog in the Monaco machine this season and his surging runs have been a big part of their success in reaching the semi finals of the Champions League.
And finally for now, Spanish media outlet Marca reckons that Real Madrid will end their pursuit of Eden Hazard for now to concentrate on developing the brilliant Marcos Asensio.
They say via BBC:
Real Madrid will drop their interest in Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, 26, in order to give 21-year-old midfielder Marco Asensio a chance to develop. (Marca – in Spanish)
Hazard has been central to everything good about Chelsea this season and at 26 he is at the very top of his game. Losing him would almost be tantamount to Manchester United losing Ronaldo in 2009.
But it will be a pivotal summer for Chelsea as the payer considers whether now is the time to make that big move.
