Chelsea Agree deal for Brazilian superstar

     Brazilian news outlet Globoesporte are reporting that Chelsea have already agreed terms with Real Madrid right back Danilo ahead of a proposed move to Stamford Bridge. The Evening Standard reported last week that the Blues were refusing to match Real Madrid’s valuation of £30.8m, with the club only prepared to bid £28m, but it seems the 25-year-old looks set for a move to England.

Lack of playing time with the Champions League and the La Liga winners has seen him consider his future at Real. According to the Brazilian publication Globo Esporte, Danilo is attracting interest from several Premier League clubs.

However, the Blues are leading the race for his signature. The former FC Porto man has already agreed personal terms with the west London club who are in an advanced stage of negotiations for the defender.

Danilo, who turned 26 on Saturday, is targeting regular playing time in the 2017/18 season in order to improve his chances of making it to the Brazil squad for next summer's World Cup in Russia.

He believes a move to Chelsea will improve his chances of featuring regularly. The English champions' manager Antonio Conte has the services of Cesar Azpilicueta as the only recognised right-back in the squad.

The Spain international has been deployed on the right side of the three-man defence, with Victor Moses playing in the right wing-back position. Conte's side will return to the Champions League after a year of absence from the European competition.
