Manchester City wants to pay £32 million for a Chelsea player who is holding out on signing a new deal.

Burnley’s offer of £31.5 million was approved by Chelsea on the day of the transfer deadline, resulting in the Dutchman making headlines.

Maatsen did not wish to return to Turf Moor, so he stayed at Stamford Bridge.

Despite this result, the future of the Dutch U-21 international at Chelsea remains exceedingly uncertain.

According to Miguel Delaney, the Daily Mail believes Maatsen has genuine reservations about signing a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge, which is one of the reasons why Chelsea were pushing him to join Burnley.

As a product of the club’s academy, Maatsen’s departure would have generated a 100 percent profit for Chelsea.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Mauricio Pochettino is a great fan of the Dutchman purely from a footballing standpoint.

Now – with all due respect to Burnley – a much better transfer could be on the horizon, as Manchester City take a look at the Chelsea academy graduate.

Pep Guardiola is reportedly interested in acquiring a new left-back, and a low-cost transfer appeals to the Citizens as Maatsen’s contract with Chelsea expires in a year.

Chelsea is confident in retaining Ian Maatsen.
There may shortly be an intriguing turn in the Maatsen saga.

Add that Chelsea hopes to reach an agreement on a new contract in the near future, so Manchester City’s interest may be short-lived.

It would be fantastic if Chelsea were able to convince the prodigy to secure a new contract, as he is an exceptional talent.

Be certain to monitor this situation, as Maatsen’s future remains uncertain.
