Chelsea FC transfer news: Blues target Gabriel Barbosa focused upon Olympics amid transfer rumours

5 Aug

Chelsea target Gabriel Barbosa insists he is fully focused on the Olympics and not his future.

The Santos striker has been heavily linked with a move to Europe this summer after scoring 21 goals last season.

Chelsea are tracking the 19-year-old, while the likes of Barcelona and Juventus are reportedly interested too.

But the teen star insists he is putting all that to one side as he looks to help Brazil win gold at the Rio Olympics.

“Honestly, I am not involved in the negotiations,” Barbosa told reporters in Brazil.

“Before I came I left everything in the hands of my parents and my agent.

“Obviously I hope it’s decided soon, but I must not rush because the window is still open for a long time.

“Everyone knows I’m a Santos fan, I’m happy there, but right now I’m just thinking about the Olympics.”
