Chelsea transfer news and rumors today: Ziyech to leave in January for Serie A giants

Alejandro Balde, 19, had always been regarded as one of the crown jewels of La Masia in recent years. And this season, the youngster has followed in the footsteps of Ansu Fati, Nico González and Gavi, by breaking into the first team.

However, Balde’s outstanding performances have not gone unnoticed, with the defender becoming a target for Chelsea, prompting the player’s agent to reject all of Barça’s renewal proposals in favor of a much higher salary with Chelsea than he currently earns at the Camp Nou, as per The national.

The Spain Under-21 international’s existing deal at the Camp Nou expires in the summer of 2024, and Barça are already drawing up plans to tie Balde to a new long-term contract with the club to ward off outside interest.
