Chelsea Transfer News: Chelsea allegedly plans to battle Liverpool this summer for the services of 15-year-old offensive phenom Mason Melia
Chelsea Transfer News: Several bids have been made by Chelsea for Mason Melia, according to Football Insider. Liverpool’s interest in the St. Patrick’s Athletic phenom, who is just 15 years old, has not waned. Todd Boehly, leader of the Blues, is on the lookout for promising young attackers, and the Irishman has lately made the club’s shortlist.
After Todd Boehly and his group took control of Chelsea, the club made many new acquisitions. The Blues have spent nearly £500 million on new players since the summer. Nevertheless, they have yet to even launch their initiative.
Chelsea’s tenacity in the market for young talent has been impressive. Most of their recent acquisitions have been fringe first-team players, but now they’re looking for possibilities who can grow with the Cobham academy and the younger teams.
They have already taken a significant step into the South American market. There are a few competitors waiting in the wings. Chelsea and Kendry Paez are still very close to finalizing a transfer, but he won’t join until he reaches 18. Many new players, including Omari Hutchinson and Carney Chukwuemeka, were signed throughout the offseason.
Will Chelsea get him or Liverpool?
They signed Brazilian forward Andrey Santos in January, but visa concerns forced them to loan him back to Vasco Da Gama. Simultaneously, they have begun to scour the British and Irish economies for available talent.
They are also interested in St. Patrick’s Athletic’s Mason Melia and Arsenal’s 15-year-old standout, Ethan Nwaneri. They had great hopes for the 15-year-old offensive prodigy, so much so that he made his senior debut and scored a goal in his first game. And Chelsea is prepared to swoop in and steal the kid from other teams interested in him.
Liverpool is also interested in signing Melia, and the Merseysides are eager to make a deal with the 15-year-old offensive phenom. Even if competition is fierce for the prodigy, the player will still be excited at the thought of joining one of England’s major teams.
Several bids have apparently been made by Chelsea for Melia, and the club may now be hoping for a swift conclusion to their pursuit. Liverpool will battle hard to keep the Irish player, but the Blues have a history of getting the finest deals on the market and they may be able to do the same this time around.
