I was expecting it to happen sometime soon to be honest, but Chelsea’s name has finally been thrown in the hat to sign Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus.
There are many rumours suggesting that he could leave City this summer, and clubs are obviously starting to line up as potential suitors.
Chelsea had not been mentioned, but they have now, by Spanish source AS, as cited below by Real Madrid news account, Madrid Xtra.
You do have a feeling that Jesus has Real Madrid written all over him for his next move, but under the circumstances it is no surprise to see Chelsea linked now as well.
The rumour mill is spinning fast and I think we can all just take this link with a massive pinch of salt for now, as is the nature of the beast at this time of the year. However, it’ll be interesting at least to keep an eye on developments here.
