Chelsea suddenly interested in 2 young talents Ansu Fati and Ronald Araujo of Barcelona
Barcelona have repeatedly disappointed Chelsea in the transfer market this summer. The London side were in fact very determined to sign Jules Kounde, but the change in the Catalan’s offer made the French defender almost officially go to Spain.
Barcelona’s move upset a lot in London and the British side’s response was to block the transfers of Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta or at least complicate it. The two Spanish defenders are Barcelona targets and it looks like their futures will be determined in the coming days.

The Sunday Express reports that Todd Boehly, Chelsea’s new owner, will have his primary goal of signing academy players like Ansu Fati (the talent promised to replace Lionel Messi at Barcelona) and Ronald Araujo. But both are stars of the present and future of Barcelona and their departure is unlikely, unless their sizable release clauses are paid. Moreover, both have also recently renewed their contracts and are key elements in coach Xavi Hernandez’s squad.
