While Manchester United have always invested in talented young players, Chelsea have gone the other way and invested in big money stars. But Egyptian Ramy Rabia has been such a talent that both the English Premier League clubs are considering a move for the Al-Ahyl defender.
The centre back has been one of the most promising youngsters for his country and has so far attained five full caps for his nation. Both the clubs have been monitoring his situation for a long time and attempting a bid for him.
But other clubs such as Borussia Dortmund and Lille are also interested in him and the Premier League duos have to fight against them to bring them to England.
The 19 year old made his club debut at the age of 17 and since cemented his place in the first team. His tackles and technique have drawn the attention of the football world and he is being hailed as the next big thing from Africa.
He is also aware of his ongoing demands and thus has signed with leading agents SEM. A SEM spokesperson has confirmed that a number of top clubs have shown interest in him, but his initial priority right now is the Under-20 World Cup.
In other news, Chelsea are preparing to offload Fernando Torres this summer despite his interest in staying at the club. With or without his knowledge, the Spaniard has scored two important goals for the Blues in the last 10 days, one against Benfica to clinch the Europa league and one against Everton to finish the season on a high.
“My decision to come to Chelsea has been vindicated by the medals I have won,” he said. “Not everything has been as bad as people have said. I am happy for thisseason and winning trophies with Chelsea, that’s what I wanted to do when I joined.
“I am feeling more important than in the past, so I think the future will be even better. When you are involved and you feel you are an important part of the team, you feel much better.
“I will be a Chelsea player, why not? I signed five years here, I have a contract and I want to do many, many things in this time. I still have three years and, hopefully, more.”
It is reported that Chelsea are now ready to listen to offers and will accept anything around £20million for the striker for whom they payed a hefty £50million when he arrived from Liverpool back in January 2011. With Lewandowski and Falcao’s situation still not cleared up, Cavani has been touted as the next target for the Blues. Cavani alongside Schurrle will prove to be a great summer for them and with Mourinho set to arrive expect some big money moves from Roman Abramovich this summer.
