Chelsea are reportedly seeking the transfer of talented 19-year-old midfielder Cesar Casadey From Inter Milan.
according to CalciomercatoChelsea have made a £6.7 million (€8 million) bid for Casadei, who has been compared to Italian midfielder Marco Verratti.
However, the Italian outlet reports that Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta is looking for an offer of £17m (€20m).
It is not clear if Chelsea will be willing to pay the 17 million pounds demanded by Inter, but it seems doubtful that the West London club would bet on a player who has not yet made his first-team debut.
Cassady’s confidence in front of goal may have drawn him to Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel.
The teenager joined Inter in 2018 for free from AC Cesena, and although he didn’t make his first team debut, he was the second team’s top scorer and was later named Young Player of the Year.
Let’s say the talented midfielder was to stay at Inter. In this case, it is unlikely that much will appear in the first team, as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marcelo Brozovic and Nicolo Parilla lead him in the standings.
However, that does not mean Casadei will feature regularly under Tuchel, who has a host of midfield options with N’Golo Kante, Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho.
With that being said, the youngster is eyeing a promising future ahead of him and it will be interesting to see if he leaves or stays at Inter.
