Chelsea have joined Paris Saint Germain, Inter and Manchester United in the race for Serie A golden boy Pietro Pellegri.

The Genoa forward, only 16, is one of the new Serie A sensations, having scored already 3 goals in only 7 games with the first team ( and not always as a starter).

Genoa outlet Il Secolo XIX, claims the competition has got even stiffer as PSG have entered the race for Pellegri in the last days.

The French champions are reportedly scouting the Italian and they are preparing to swoop, even if Inter was ready to place a bid for him and another Genoa’s young talent, Eddy Salcedo ( who turned 16 last week).

Genoa, however, are hoping that Pellegri will opt to stay for at least two more years at the Rossoblu.

Mbappe scored a brace in the Monaco 3-2 win at Signal Iduna Park, reaching 4 goals in 6 games in the competition this season.

Not bad for a 19-year-old, that impressed also in the last 16 tie against Manchester City one month ago.

Real Madrid has been following the French forward for a while, but now the Blancos will have to battle with Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal to try to sign the new Ligue 1 sensation.

The Red Devils had a £ 63m rejected from Monaco some months ago, when they tried to sign the youngster.

A trio of Premier League clubs are set to battle it out for the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Isco this summer, as Manchester City joined both Arsenal and Chelsea in a race to sign the 23-year-old.

Real are reportedly willing to let Isco move in the summer, with Zidane being angered with his poor attitude and lack of application since taking over from Rafa Benitez.

It is believed that Isco would command a fee in the region of £40m and Italian champions Juventus are also monitoring the player.

Isco has made 33 appearances for Real this season, although most of those have come from the bench, meaning the player would likely be happy to move onto a new club should the right opportunity arise.
