Romano says Man United target has now agreed terms with Chelsea, £27m deal closer

Manchester United have fallen behind on so many areas in the Glazer era; the stadium, scouting department, their training ground and basically everything else required in modern football. 

The Red Devils’ pursuit of Aaron Anselmino, Thalys, Franco Mastantuono, Willian Estevao, and other players feels more like a change in strategy brought about by Ineos’ desire to bring Manchester United into the twenty-first century, which should come as no surprise given that Arsenal, Man City, and Chelsea have recently made excellent use of the South American market.

Anselmino, a teenager for Boca Juniors, seems to be the top choice to revitalize an aging backline. Along with Estevao, another teammate from Palmeiras who seems certain to cross the Atlantic sooner rather than later, Thalys is someone to keep an eye on.

Maybe as soon as this summer.

Manchester United target nearing Chelsea switch

Fabrizio Romano reports that a Premier League giant have now ‘reached a verbal agreement on personal terms’ with a winger nicknamed Messinho due to his apparent similarities with, well, guess who?

It’s not Man United, however, but Chelsea who appear to be on the verge of adding Estevao to a highly-promising if precocious band of Stamford Bridge starlets.

“Understand Chelsea have reached verbal agreement with Willian Estevao on personal terms,” Fabrizio Romano writes on X. “Told initial bid still to be sent but it will be around 32 million euros plus add-ons, as talks with Palmeiras will follow.

“Nothing done yet but Chelsea remain clear favourites since January.”
