Chelsea are reportedly prepared to pay the release clause of Napoli attacker José Callejón.
Maurizio Sarri is thought to be closing in on becoming Chelsea manager, and the Italian press are having a field day.
Virtually every player among Napoli’s ranks has been linked with a summer switch to Stamford Bridge. We’re surprised Alessandro the kit man hasn’t been too!
From Jorginho and Lorenzo Insigne, to Kalidou Koulibaly and Elseid Hysaj, Chelsea might as well relocate in Naples if this is going to be our transfer strategy.
We now have a new name to add into the equation in the shape of Real Madrid academy product José Callejón.
According to today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea are interested in signing the Spaniard. So interested, in fact, that we’re prepared to pay his release clause in full.
It’s not mentioned in the report what exactly Callejon’s release clause is, but we hope that it’s not too hefty, with the forward turning 31 in February.
