Chelsea have reached an agreement with Italian club Inter Milan for the transfer of 19 year old midfielder Cesare Casadei.
The deal is expected to be confirmed this week, and Casadei will have his medical today.
The deal to sign Casadei from Inter Milan is worth €15million which could rise to €20million.
Fabrizio Romano tweeted about the deal: “Cesare Casadei will fly to London on Wednesday night as main part of medical tests has been booked. Deal completed for €15m plus €5m add-ons, Chelsea will unveil Casadei as new signing soon.
…and it’s not over for Chelsea top talents project yet.”
Inter Milan legend Walter Zenga has questioned Inter’s decision to sell Cesare Casadei to Chelsea.
Zenga said, “Inter sold Pinamonti and Casadei and pocketed €35 million.
“But if Casadei is so good, the question arises – if Casadei is good enough to end up at Chelsea why couldn’t he play here?
“You wonder why they see players abroad and invest in them like this. The problem comes down to income and expenses.”
