Jose Mourinho’s new interest in one of the best young players in Spain

Chelsea are set to rival Liverpool for the summer signing of Malaga wonderkid Jose Luis Salazar, known more colloquially as Kuki. That’s according to reports that suggest the 16-year-old has a release clause of £4.4 million and that he’s being scouted by Premier League clubs. Manchester City are also said to be in the running, though Liverpool have invested the most time having been in the hunt for over a year. In Chelsea though they’ll have stern competitors, and the Blues are also tracking Anderlecht starlet Aaron Isecka. And more straightforward piece of news today carries quotes from Palermo chief Maurizio Zamparini that confirm his belief Chelsea target Paulo Dybala will make a transfer this summer. The Blues, along with Manchester United and Arsenal, are following the Serie A striker and Zamparini’s quotes appear to infer an end of season deal is possible.
