Pep Guardiola is “monitoring” a Chelsea full-back transfer, among other things.

According to reports, Manchester City is considering a deal for a Chelsea teenager who has been making Mauricio Pochettino proud.

According to reports, Manchester City is considering making contact with Chelsea full-back Ian Maatsen.

Chelsea reportedly wants Maatsen to sign a contract extension, but so far they have had trouble making that happen. The Dutchman had a great loan season with Burnley last year, and there were rumors the defender would return on deadline day before committing permanently for £31.5 million at the end of the campaign.

Furthering the enigma surrounding the incident, it is believed that Maatsen rejected this contact from the Lancashire club. The full-back is a favorite of Mauricio Pochettino, who is reportedly working hard to keep him.

City is apparently monitoring the issue right now to see how it develops. The Blues are believed to be trailing Chelsea in the hunt to recruit promising Corinthians kid Gabriel Moscardo, according to Brazilian media outlet Lance.

In South America, the 17-year-old defensive midfielder has drawn attention and this season has made the first team. Chelsea allegedly had a €25 million (£21.5 million) offer rejected but is still making a strong effort to sign their target despite the transfer window being closed.

Moscardo is valued at €30 million (£25.8 million) by Corinthians, and City is rumored to be keenly following his development along with Arsenal and Barcelona. Chelsea is said to have an advantage because the athlete has an agent with Deivid Washington and Angelo Gabriel, two of their recent additions.
