Chelsea have been dealt a major blow with the news that they are set to miss out on the signing of Bradley Barcola to Paris Saint-Germain.
According to a report from The Sun, Chelsea target Barcola, 20, is closing in on a £50 million move to PSG from Lyon in the summer transfer window.
The Blues boss desperately needs to add another top-class winger to his ranks at Stamford Bridge this summer, and Barcola would have been a truly stunning addition for the west London outfit.
However, it seems as though Chelsea are set to face disappointment on that front…
Chelsea dealt hammer blow as ‘stunning’ Bradley Barcola reportedly could be PSG bound in £50m deal
The Sun are claiming that the super talented young forward is closing in on a move to French giants PSG this summer, so that’s really bad news for Chelsea.
Barcola would have been an absolutely brilliant addition for the Blues. He possesses blistering speed and has unbelievable technical ability.
Last season, he bagged seven goals and 10 assists in 35 games for Lyon. That really is a hugely impressive return for someone so young, and he has the potential to keep getting better and better with every year that passes.
The Daily Express recently described Barcola as a ‘stunning’ player, and they’re certainly not wrong there. Missing out on the young Frenchman will be a big blow for Chelsea and Pochettino.
The Blues boss must now focus his attention elsewhere, and ensure that he brings a truly elite winger to Stamford Bridge before the summer transfer window closes.
