Chelsea are ready to go in full force with Manchester United and Man City for the signing of one of Brazil’s top talents this season, with reports saying Pep Guardiola has earmarked the youngster as a priority signing, per the Mirror.
The 20-year old versatile players is capable of playing anywhere on the pitch especially, defensive midfield position, right back and occasionally central defense. Playing for Sao Paulo, Eder Militao has been rated as one of the best youngsters in the Brazilian top division. He has been consistently good on the ball and off it, prompting Guardiola to tel his top officials to sign him at all cost next summer.
But reports from Brazil indicate there has been no agreement between Man City and Sao Paulo, alerting Chelsea to the opportunity to sign their man after this season. There could be some difficulty in there though, with Guardiola working with Brazilians so well this season following the capture of Gabriel Jesus, Ederson, Danilo and Fernandinho to the Ettihad stadium.
Militao, would improve Chelsea’s midfield as Antonio Conte struggles to find a good partner for N’Golo Kante, a problem that has cost Chelsea a lot this season.
