Forget Golovin, Chelsea agree shock transfer for Brazil star



Brazillian winger Bernard Duarte is reportedly close to moving to Chelsea if report from Metro is accurate.

According to the popular tabloid, Chelsea have turned to the player after the snub of Golovin as they seek to improve the squad. Golovin had been thought to be close to a move to Stamford Bridge but performed a u-turn earlier this week.

Golovin was said to be worried about his first team prospect in the squad and instead turned to French giants Monaco that has a track record of giving young players time to thrive.

Benard is a free agent which appeals to the blues as the signing would be devoid of a transfer fee. However, the Blues face a race to sign the winger as close to 10 clubs have also met the player’s representatives over a possible transfer

However, Globo Esporte claims that Bernard has made up his mind to play for the blues citing higher wages and the appeal of living in London as the critical factors that influenced the decision.

Bernard was impressive for the Ukranian outfit during his time in Ukraine winning multiple league titles and last season he produced his best performance scoring 10 goals in all competitions.

Bernard would be a good replacement for Willian as he would provide a cheap and ideal fit to the right wing with his deadly crossing and shooting abilities.
