Chelsea have tabled an offer for Gabriel Moscardo, which appears well below Corinthians’ valuation, as a future decision seems imminent.

According to Goal Brazil, Chelsea have already tabled a formal offer to sign Gabriel Moscardo, which Corinthians are yet to decide upon. The upcoming Presidential elections at the Brazilian club could become a significant factor in determining the 18-year-old Barcelona target’s future, with the Blues’ bid well below their asking price.

Gabriel Moscardo has become a familiar name among top European and English sides, with the 18-year-old thoroughly impressing many with his displays. Top teams already view him as a significant player of the future and are ready to make a sizeable investment to sign him.

Chelsea were reportedly told to pay €30 million for the midfielder, but the price has increased. Moscardo has a release clause worth €100 million, which Corinthians think is impossible. Hence, they are willing to play a different card and demand at least €35 million.

Chelsea has reportedly made an offer worth €25 million, including add-ons, which Corinthians are not keen on accepting. As things stand, the Brazilian side will decide on the bid after the upcoming Presidential elections. The offer remains on the table.

The idea is that their current president accepts it or leaves it to his successor to decide. Either way, Moscardo’s future appears away from Corinthians, and Chelsea are one of the key clubs pursuing the 18-year-old Barcelona target.

The Catalans are also very keen to sign him, and recent developments with the injury to Gavi could make them accelerate a pursuit. Whether they have the financial capacity to make the deal happen remains the question, which could give Chelsea the edge.

Corinthians have stated their demands. Arsenal, who also have an interest, may reconsider and surpass Chelsea with a better offer. By Barcelona’s financial standing, English clubs will sense they have a better chance of signing the 18-year-old in January.

Alternatively, Corinthians could outright reject Chelsea’s bid and ask for more money than they currently offer. The ball is in the Brazilian club’s court, but they will not risk a big sale with absurd demands for the 18-year-old midfielder.
