Chelsea are already taking the necessary steps to make sure they complete a move for Manuel Ugarte, MySportDab reports.
Mauricio Pochettino who was recently announced as Chelsea manager will be looking to make some major changes in the team.
Manuel Ugarte is one of those who is being targeted for a possible move to Stamford Bridge during the transfer window.
The move is one which Paris Saint Germain are also looking to hijack with them also looking to offer a huge fee to see the deal happen.
Both teams have an equal chance of making a move happen but they need to meet the demands of Sporting Lisbon who want to sell.
According to Transfer News Live, the Blues want to offer a much better fee which will include a player that will go on loan move.
Here Is What Was Said:
“Chelsea have offered €60M + €5M in add-ons, with David Datro Fofana included on loan, for Manuel Ugarte.
“The Sporting midfielder prefers to join Chelsea over PSG.
Meanwhile the player himself is said to prefer a move to Chelsea but playing Champions League club be major factor against the Premier League side.
There are no other club currently showing interest on the midfielder who is open to making the move to better his career and win major titles.
Manuel Ugarte has shown a lot of promising talent which is the reason he is being targeted and both teams willing to go as high as possible.
Chelsea could also drop on the race as they are also faced with a task of cutting down their squad lower to help with their financial record.
There are also a number of senior team players who want to leave for Champions League football elsewhere after they fail to make the top half of the table.
