Today’s Chelsea transfer rumours have seen the Blues linked with a shock move to spend £29m on signing Porto teenager Ruben Neves ahead of rivals Liverpool.

The 18-year-old is considered to be one of the best young talents in Europe at the moment, having drawn comparisons with Barcelona defensive midfielder Sergio Busquets for his strong play in protecting the back four and distributing the ball.

Barcelona themselves have shown an interest in the youngster, but it now looks like Chelsea are stepping up their efforts to beat their rivals to his signature, according to the Metro.

Jose Mourinho is a big fan of Neves and is ready to pay up for this player with immense potential, with a £29m move set to make him one of the most expensive teenagers ever.
