If Chelsea won’t beat both Manchester clubs in on the field affairs when this season comes to an end, at least we will have got one over the duo from the north this summer.
According to The Sun, the Blues are close to completing a deal to sign Man City and Man United target Jayden Braaf.
Braaf, who currently plays for PSV Eindhoven, has been shining for his club’s youth sides which have earned him six appearances for The Netherlands U15 team, scoring once.
An agreement between the teenage striker and Chelsea has also been reached, as The Sun quotes Braaf’s agent Stefano van Delden saying:

“We have reached an agreement in principle for Jayden to join Chelsea but it is a verbal agreement.
“Nothing has yet been put in writing.”
With the Blues reputation for shipping out our youngsters for marginal profit, it’s hard to get excited about this potential signing.
However, the progress Andreas Christensen has made since becoming a Chelsea regular can give our youngsters a goal that they can play for the club’s first team one day.
