Chelsea

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Gabriel Moscardo in the recent months. The Blues are currently on a relentless pursuit to bring in some of the world’s most talented youngsters.

The club’s hierarchy would certainly fancy their chances to bring in the Brazilian wonderkid from Corinthians. Chelsea roped in Allyson Marins into their recruitment fold. Allyson was the chief scout for Corinthians before joining Chelsea. Hence the Blues will have a significant advantage in signing Moscardo.
