Chelsea are Barcelona are the latest high-profile sides to have joined the race for Monaco starlet Bernardo Silva, according to Daily Mail.
The Portuguese midfielder has seen his stock rise a great deal since joining from Benfica and he is now being heavily linked with a big club move.
Jut few days ago, it was suggested that Juventus were readying a January bid for his services, but it is now clear that the Bianconeri could face competition from other top sides.
Daily Mail understands that both Chelsea and Barcelona are showing interest in the 21-year-old footballer.
But, while the Catalans do not exactly have the funds to launch an assault in January, the Premier League holders are reportedly pondering a €30 million offer.
Bernardo Silva has scored a total of 12 goals in 49 league outings for Monaco, while also starting two Euro 2016 qualifiers for Portugal.
PSG may cash in on Rabiot
Paris Saint-Germain might be forced to sell talented midfielder Adrien Rabiot, L’Equipe has suggested.
The highly rated footballer has spoken publicly about his desire to leave the Saints in search for first team football and the club officials are getting fed up with his constant complains.
PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi was reportedly furious after the youngster’s latest outburst as he suggested that the president had promised him he would be allowed to leave on loan.
According to the latest reports, the Saints have no intention to loan out the 20-year-old, but they could have no choice but to sell if he keeps up his antics.
Adrien Rabiot reportedly wants to secure his place in France’s Euro 2016 squad, and for that to happen, he obviously needs to play on regular basis.
The reality is that the talented footballer has been given a fair chance to impress at Parc des Princes, having started 9 Ligue 1 fixtures this term.
