It’s been more than a year since Chelsea began bonding with Mexico-Porto midfielder Jesús Corona, and it turns out that the summer transfer market could be the perfect time to go find the star.
According to Correio da Manha newspaper the player wants to leave the Dragons and has already told the board of his intentions.
The American wants a new project with a millionaire contract and a new sports motivation.
Porto is believed to be fine with his decision to depart, especially as his contract expires next year, and that means the club can find a solution to Jesús’s case long before risking losing him for nothing.
Corona has reportedly told his entourage to go find new clubs and then names some of those who have been interested in his signing.
Chelsea is one of them. The West Londoners are named alongside teams like Everton, Wolves, Fiorentina, and Sevilla as the clubs that have already shown interest in their signing.
It will not cost the blues much since his buy-out clause drops from €30 million to €20 million during the month of June.
