On Tuesday, Gabriel Moscardo’s agent dismissed claims stating that an agreement was in place with Chelsea for the Corinthians player’s transfer.

For the past few months, the Blues have been credited with an interest in the midfielder, who revealed earlier this month that he’s aware of the west London club’s interest.

Chelsea have received a boost after Chicão, the Brazilian club’s new technical coordinator, told SBT Sports that he would sell the 18-year-old to the Premier League side for €25m.

“This value is difficult to hold on to the player. It’ll be one of the biggest sales in the club’s history. I, personally, would sell too,” he said.

At the weekend, Augusto Melo was elected as Corinthians’s new president, and he told CNN Brasil Chicão will be part of the club’s new management.

Last month, Sport stated Mauricio Pochettino’s side could make a third offer after the Brazilian club rejected their two proposals for the player.

Today’s edition of the same newspaper explains that Paris Saint-Germain are in pole position to secure the youngster’s services.

The Premier League side would have to overcome PSG, if they wish to sign Moscardo.
