Chelsea, United to battle for Pellistri


Two English Premier League clubs Chelsea and Man United are set for a battle off the pitch over the signature of Panarol teenage star Facundo Pellistri ahead of the summer transfer window.

Both clubs are keen on the star player and have set a target of the summer transfer window to snap him up.

Facundo Pellistri has impressed with his Uruguayan club and could be set for Europe with interests growing over his signature.

Italian Serie A champions Juventus are also reported to have been monitoring Facundo Pellistri and will make a bid for him in the summer window.

His Uruguayan club are willing to let him go for a £10 million fee which all suitors are willing to pay but Chelsea is tipped to be favourites, reason why manager Frank Lampard is making efforts to act fast.

Both Man United and Chelsea will be busy in this summer transfer window as they look to compete for titles in the coming season.

The Blues team has already confirmed two signings, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech from RB Leipzig and Ajax respectively but are looking to add more while Man United is focused on finishing the season before engaging in the summer transfer market.
