Chelsea transfer news

Chelsea has thrown their hat into the ring for the £100 million-rated midfielder from Benfica, Joao Neves, as they aim to bolster their squad ahead of the summer transfer window. The 19-year-old, who has been making waves with his performances, has attracted interest from Manchester United, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, and Bayern Munich.

Neves, whose contract runs until 2028, has a release clause of €120 million (£102 million), with talks of Benfica considering raising it to €150 million (£128 million). Despite speculation surrounding his future, Neves remained tight-lipped, stating his focus on giving his best for Benfica.

Chelsea’s interest in Neves comes amidst their need to adhere to Premier League’s profit and sustainability regulations, which might necessitate selling players before making big-money signings. Reece James and Conor Gallagher have been earmarked as potential departures, with their sale likely to impact the club’s financial standing.
