Man City Begins Chelsea Midfielder transfer discussions as Chelsea Given Manuel Ugarte pay resolution

Chelsea has an opportunity to resolve their wage bill issues and pursue Manuel Ugarte from Sporting CP.

Galatasaray has reached out to the Blues in regards to a potential deal to recruit Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a failed transfer from Dortmund.

Pochettino has identified Ugarte as a priority acquisition, and Chelsea are currently negotiating a £52 million deal with Sporting to acquire the 22-year-old midfielder.

Boehly’s offer is significantly lower than what PSG are offering Ugarte; however, the American may be prepared to increase his offer if Aubameyang leaves Chelsea and creates more salary cap space.

According to Turkish journalist Ertan Süzgün, Galatasaray have begun negotiations with the Blues to acquire the 33-year-old player.

Aubameyang’s current contract is scheduled to expire at the conclusion of the 2019-20 campaign, but his future is uncertain after a disappointing debut season in which he scored just three goals in 22 appearances.

Chelsea enter £34.6m contest to replace Mauricio Pochettino with Mason Mount replacement of their dreams.

Mauricio Pochettino’s disappointment over Mason Mount’s probable departure in the summer could be mitigated if Chelsea’s new manager finds an ideal replacement.

The 24-year-old has been in discussions about a new contract throughout the 2022/23 season, but little progress has been made, and it appears Mount will leave his boyhood club.

Ugarte is viewed as the best option among Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia, and Manu Kone to pair with Enzo Fernandez, as numerous midfield talents are anticipated to depart.

Mount and Loftus-Cheek are joined on this list by Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante, whose contract extension negotiations have stalled.

Therefore, strengthening the midfield could be a top priority for Pochettino, and the Blues may have discovered the ideal replacement for Mount.

According to AS in Spain, Gabri Veiga is attracting intense interest from a number of major European clubs, the most recent of which is Chelsea.

Arsenal has been monitoring the attacking midfielder for the majority of 2023, while Manchester United, Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich are also keeping an eye on him.

One of these seven clubs appears likely to consent to a transfer for Veiga, with his €40 million (£34.6 million) release clause making a move much easier, and the 21-year-old will not remain at Celta for the 2023/24 season, according to the report.

Man City begins Mateo Kovacic discusses a transfer to Chelsea as Maurizio Pochettino’s hiring is announced.

This summer, Manchester City has begun negotiations to acquire Chelsea sensation Mateo Kovacic.

The Blues are expected to offload a number of senior players, including the Croat, whose contract at Stamford Bridge has entered its final year.

Kovacic returned from injury in the final game of the Premier League season, a 1-1 stalemate against Newcastle, as Frank Lampard concluded his stint as caretaker manager.

This season, the 29-year-old has endured a number of injuries and appears to have played his final game for the Blues.

Personal terms have reportedly been discussed favorably with the player’s camp in the last few days, per Fabrizio Romano.

As part of their midfield revolution, Chelsea are open to selling Kovacic, according to the transfer guru, with negotiations due to continue shortly.
