Highly rated journalist Duncan Castles have confirmed that West London side Chelsea are interested in Porto youngster Eder Militao and are set to beat Premier League rivals Manchester United for his signature.
The Red Devils are reported to be interested in the star signature but they have been told they will not be able to secure his service with Chelsea already favoured.
United are desperate for a new defender and manager Jose Mourinho is all out to secure the services of quality players to the team which makes Eder Militao a good fit.
They have so far conceded 26 goals in 16 games and sit sixth place in the English Premier League table which makes their defence one of the worst in the first six teams.
However, the Blues are also keen to have new additions at the back and have gone ahead with a bid already submitted for the star player.
Manager Maurizio Sarri is desperate to have a title this season as well as to qualify for next season’s Champions League and that will only be made easy with a quality squad as well as good options.
The West London side have lost just twice this season against Tottenham and Wolves respectively.
