Milan Jump Ahead of Inter for Chelsea Talent Chalobah

While Inter were the first to track Trevoh Chalobah, Milan quickly recuperated ground and are now seen in the lead for his services, although it’s not yet certain that Chelsea will indeed let him go. The Blues need to sign another center-back before okaying his departure.

As per Sky, the Pensioners are going all in on Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana. The Foxes have been playing hardball despite their sizeable offers. If they were successful, the youngster would be allowed to leave on loan.

Milan have leapfrogged Inter in the Chalobah race because they are willing to pay for the temporary spell, differently from their crosstown rivals. The fee could amount to up to €3M. Both sides have an excellent relationship with Chelsea. It doesn’t appear that either would be able to get an option to redeem him in the future, though. The defender seemed to be leaning towards the Nerazzurri over other clubs, but that was before the Scudetto winners came forward.

While Francesco Acerbi would be the fallback plan for La Beneamata, the Rossoneri have rekindled their interest in an old target in case they couldn’t land the Englishman. They have reached out to Schalke 04 to inquire about Malick Thiaw, Alfredo Pedullà informs. They are plotting to lodge a relatively small offer as the counterpart needs to sell due to financial problems.

Our Take on Milan and Inter Dueling for Chalobah

It wouldn’t be a bad addition to round out either defense, although it would be just a short-term solution if the clubs couldn’t include a clause to buy him out. That would eliminate a lot of the appeal of the signing, which mainly lies in the potential of the newcomer.
