Jose Mourinho adds Mario Pašalić to his midfield roster…
Read more Chelsea transfer news.
Chelsea have completed a €3m deal for Hadjuk Split teenage midfielder Mario Pašalić, according to Italian football journalist Gianluca di Marzio’s website.
The quote from the website translates like this:
Lazio was close, but they couldn’t complete the deal. Chelsea jumped in and was able to acquire the Hajduk Split prospect. The deal was reached with the Croatian club for 3 million euro.
The 18-year-old midfielder has played 13 times for Hadjuk this term, scoring six goals.
It’s likely that Pašalić will be sent out immediately on loan if he does complete a deal before the transfer window closes, although it’s possible that he’ll train with the Under-21s until the end of the season, too.
