Chelsea FC have joined Premier League giants Manchester City in the hunt to sign Eder Gabriel Militao from Brazilian sides Sao Paulo, according to a report from Darren Lewis of British national daily tabloid newspaper The Mirror.
The Brazilian is one of the most talented young players in world football, with the likes of Porto, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund also keeping tabs on him.
Eder Gabriel Militao’s versatility will be a big benefit to whichever club the 20-year-old centre-back chooses to join, as he is comfortable playing at right back and centre midfield as well.
Sao Paulo are evidently looking for offers of around £20m before they even plan to sell one of their prized assets, and with so much interest in Eder Militao, it looks very likely that some interested club will be willing to break the bank to get him.
Chelsea FC will be looking to find the new top quality players to rebuild their squad after a disappointing campaign and it seems like Eder Gabriel Militao will be one of the players on their list of goals.
