The Latest Chelsea Transfer News: Rafael Leao is in front of the Blues; Raheem Sterling’s departure is unlikely, and more

When Chelsea plays Leeds United at Stamford Bridge on March 4 in the Premier League, they will be eager to get back to winning ways. In his last 15 competitive games, Graham Potter has won just two. In the meantime, the Blues are the front-runners to sign Rafael Leao. Fabrizio Romano, a transfer expert, says that Raheem Sterling won’t leave the London giants this summer.

Rafael Leao’s race is ahead of Chelsea.

According to Sport Witness and Gazzetta Dello Sport, Chelsea are the front-runners in the race to acquire Rafael Leao.

The Blues, who attempted to lure the Portuguese away from AC Milan in January, see him as a long-term target. The Rossoneri, on the other hand, were determined to keep their star player, and they refused to let go of him.

However, there has been speculation about the 23-year-old’s future due to the fact that his contract with Milan is set to expire in less than 18 months. Despite their best efforts, the holders of the Serie A have been unable to secure a new contract for him. The situation is being closely monitored by the Blues.

At the end of the season, Chelsea is expected to add more players to their attack, and they want Leao. Milan are prepared to offer the Portuguese player a new contract worth €6.5 million per year, but he has not yet signed.

The player is aware that the London giants could offer him a better contract, and the player’s entourage is regularly contacted by the Blues. In 32 appearances for Milan across all competitions this season, the 23-year-old has scored nine goals and contributed ten assists.

It is unlikely that Raheem Sterling will go. According to Fabrizio Romano, Raheem Sterling is unlikely to leave Chelsea at the end of the season.

The English forward, who transferred from Manchester City to Stamford Bridge last summer, has been inconsistent. Recently, Arsenal reportedly expressed interest in his services, which has led to speculation that he might leave the team.

Gabriele Biancheri attracted the Blues’ attention.

Fabrizio Romano claims that Gabriel Biancheri was a target for Chelsea. The highly regarded teenager from Wales recently relocated to Manchester United. The 16-year-old had previously caught the attention of Cardiff City, which sparked interest from European teams.

Biancheri was also a target for the Blues, but the Red Devils were ahead of them. The Welshman recently announced that he will be joining Old Trafford.

Romano wrote in his column for Caught Offside that Manchester United acted quickly in February to win the player’s signature over other teams.

Romano wrote, “Manchester United believe their new signing has an excellent potential for the future.” Gabriele Biancheri is regarded as a boy with a lot of talent.

Added he:

“They truly desired him; The academy benefited greatly from this decision. Chelsea was also interested in signing him, but United wanted to get a deal done in February to get ahead of the other clubs.

Biancheri has joined the club’s academy, but when he turns 17 he will be eligible for a professional contract.
