Chelsea: Race hots up for Barca starlet

The highly-rated 17-year-old is reported to have rejected the offer of a new contract with the Catalan giants and that could open the door for a move to England.

Sanabria still has 18 months left to run on his current deal but there is a buy-out clause in it meaning any club that offers £2.5million are in with a chance of doing a deal.
Arsenal were reported to be leading the race, ahead of Italian outfit AS Roma but Chelsea are now in the hunt for his services and could hijack any potential swoop.
