Chelsea want to torpedo one of the mega-steps of the summer

The difficulties of signing a '9' like Haaland, Kane or Lukaku, have made the blues join the race for Jack Grealish, according to 'TuttomercatoWeb'.


At Stamford Bridge they do not give up in their attempt to put the icing on the cake for a squad that already managed to be European champion last year. The ultimate obsession is to get hold of a bombastic center forward to score the goals that Timo Werner left forgotten in Leipzig. Or at least it was, because now pretending to spoil the party for Manchester City as far as Jack Grealish is concerned. The skyblue, news in the last hours by some emails that "prove they cheated" to haggle at the Financial Fair Play, were in pole position in the race to win the Aston Villa star.However, according to TuttomercatoWeb, in a report echoed by the English press, Chelsea is prepared to torpedo the operation. In Birmingham, who do not want to let their '10' out for less than 120 million euros, they do not give their arm to twist easily and try in parallel to convince their player with a juicy renovation. They already did it last summer, with a similar tactic, when it was Manchester United that was willing to take Grealish out of Villa Park. But now, always according to the related information, they will have to fight not one, but two miuras.

As we said, Tuchel had asked that efforts be made to reinforce the position of '9', but the existing obstacles have made him look at players of a different profile. Grealish has the soul of a midfielder, but he tends to play on the left wing, from where his creative capacity shines. There, yes, he would have to compete with Pulisic or Havertz for the timing. Although in the recent European Championship he has shown that fighting for playing time does not make him lose performance.Berardi, the outsider

But it does not seem that the competition is a problem for Tuchel, since in the 'Gazzetta dello Sport' they talk about the blue interest in Domenico Berardi. The Italian international can also play in the center, although he is a usual winger, right in his case. The Italian newspaper notes that a 40 million euro offer would be needed to convince Sassuolo to sell its star, as well as to get ahead of Milan and Borussia Dortmund, its other high bidders. It is clear that Chelsea is not resting on its laurels.
