Chelsea to beat Man United to the signing of £70m star

Chelsea have the chance to steal a march on Manchester United over the signing of Serbian and Frankfurt Eintracht striker Luka Jovic, according to reports.

The Blues were handed a two year ban in the transfer window by the court of arbitration for sports. The West London club have appealed the judgement and they could be able to sign players.

Jovic is one of the standout performers for his club this season and he has earned the attraction of several clubs including those in the Premier League. Manchester United and Chelsea are linked to the signing of the 21-year-old but he would favour a move to Stamford Bridge because they have qualified for the Champions League, reports Express Sports.

United ended the season in sixth place on the EPL table, they may be able to attract classy players to their side. Paul Pogba’s future is up in the air and Ander Herrera has announced his imminent departure.

Meanwhile, Jovic is also on the radar of Real Madrid and we are likely going to see a bidding war over his signature. The Blues are weighing a  £70m move for the star, per the report.
