Gabriel Moscardo prefers PSG over Chelsea: Corinthians set price

Gabriel Moscardo has chosen PSG over Chelsea, as Corinthians have set their asking price for the 18-year-old midfielder.

Foot Mercato reports that Paris Saint-Germain has gained an advantage over Chelsea in the pursuit of the 18-year-old midfielder. PSG director Luis Campos is set to fly to Brazil to finalize the deal, which might cost €25m. Despite Chelsea’s €20m bid being rejected, Corinthians are prepared to sell their prized asset to the highest bidder.

Reportedly, Gabriel Moscardo has set his sights on joining PSG in January, and both clubs aim to reach an agreement as soon as possible.

The player believes that Chelsea boasts various midfield options such as Enzo Fernandez, Moises Caicedo, Conor Gallagher, Romeo Lavia, Lesley Ugochukwu, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Andrey Santos. He fears that he could face difficulties securing playing time with the London club and prefers the move to PSG.

Because Chelsea has exhausted all seven international loan spots, they cannot present Moscardo with the option of a potential loan move. Consequently, PSG now has an open opportunity to acquire the player, despite entering the race relatively late.

Chelsea, facing goal-scoring challenges, may prioritize adding an extra striker in January, with Mauricio Pochettino showing interest. They are reportedly eyeing a potential signing of Ivan Toney from Brentford. However, they are expected to encounter strong competition from Arsenal for the £80 million ($99m)-rated striker.
