Chelsea and Barcelona have made the summer transfer window an interesting one.

The two clubs have gone for similar targets, and Chelsea have lost out to Barcelona in deals for Raphinha and Jules Kounde.

Barcelona fans are now telling Barca to hijack Chelsea’s move for Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella.

The 24-year-old is a Barcelona academy graduate and said back in May that he would be open to a return to the Camp Nou.

With Barcelona keen on signing a new left-back, Barca fans are taunting Chelsea by telling Joan Laporta to make a move for Cucurella.

See some comments from Barcelona fans below

Kweku Spider: “Barcelona is in the market looking for a left back because Chelsea won’t sell Alonso to them. Now Chelsea is interested in Cucurella and [sporting director] Alemany has heard it.”

ᴄᴇʀᴛɪꜰɪᴇᴅ ꜱɪᴍᴘ™: “When Barcelona hear Chelsea are going for Marc Cucurella. FC Barcelona: that’s our next target.”

Clev: “Not even joking, but if Barcelona truly wanted to hijack Cucurella’s move, we would. He’s always said he’d comeback if we ever gave him a call. Made in La Masia.”
