Chelsea are close to sealing a deal for Barcelona striker Marc Guiu.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has reported that Marc Guiu has completed medical tests in London ahead of sealing a move to Chelsea.

Chelsea have already triggered the release clause of €6m for the 18-year-old Barcelona academy product.

Barcelona had tried but failed to keep hold of Marc Guiu as he rejected a new Barca contract.

Guiu will sign a six-year contract with Chelsea, and is expected to stay with the first team for next season.

Guiu is highly rated at Barcelona, but has been on the fringes at the Blaugrana, which made it easy for Chelsea to snap him.

Chelsea have also offered to triple the wages of the Barcelona teenager.

According to The Athletic, the 18-year-old will earn £50,000 a week – three times his Barcelona wages.

Guiu’s salary will place him in the bottom half of the Chelsea payroll.

The likes of Noni Madueke, Conor Gallagher and Trevoh Chalobah have similar salary to Marc Guiu, while Malo Gusto and Djordje Petrovic who are regular starters earn even less — £45,000 and £25,000 per week, respectively.

Chelsea want Guiu to become a first-team player, after just 5 senior appearances for Barcelona.
