Transfer: Corona’s agent confirms talk with Chelsea



F.C Porto players Jesus Corona’s agent has confirmed talks have taken place with Chelsea in a view of a potential move during the summer transfer window.

Chelsea offered a one-year extensions to Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero last week but their two most experienced wingers, Willian and Pedro, might leave at the end of the season once their contracts expire.

The club manager, Frank Lampard is said to be an admirer of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, but the Bundesliga club’s £120million release clause is likely to force the Blues to look elsewhere.

However, according to reports earlier this week, Chelsea had identified Porto winger Corona as a potential alternative and his representative, Matias Bunge has confirmed discussions have taken place.

“At some point we talked to them. I cannot say if he’s option A, B or C, now they are rather rumours,” Matias Bunge told Medio Tiempo.

“We’ll have to wait a bit for this to continue moving forward and for the leagues to begin again, and from there see what the next movements will be because the market is a little bit stopped.

“He has two years left on his contract. He did awaken a lot of interest for his participation in this particular tournament [Primera Liga], which has been outstanding and at a high level.

“But now with the current situation of the virus everything has slowed down a bit, now the signings are in quarantine.”
