Chelsea and Manchester United target drops big hint over future
Chelsea and Manchester United will go head-to-head for one massive signing this summer which could cost an extortionate amount of money.
The Premier League pair will face off to try and sign Torino’s Andrea Belotti after he made comments that he could well leave in the summer.
Having scored in Sunday’s clash with Cagliari, the player explained ‘Today I play for Torino, tomorrow I don’t know.’
Another game, another goal for Belotti. Hard to say whether he'll leave Torino this summer, all depends on what offers he has on the table.

This would suggest that the player is getting ready to say his goodbyes and move onto the big things and test himself again some of the world’s best teams.
If either of the pair were to sign Belotti, it would certainly put them back an extremely large amount of their transfer kitty, much to the tune of 100 million euros due to a clause in his contract.
The release clause is only valid to teams outside of Italy so a move abroad would be the likely option for the Italian.
With Manchester United trying to get a deal over the line for Antoine Griezmann, Belotti may well be seen as a back-up should that deal fall through, possibly giving Chelsea the edge in any case.
The London side are said to be after Romelu Lukaku should Diego Costa leave, while Alvaro Morata has also been linked with a move to Antonio Conte’s side.
