Chelsea dealt a DOUBLE transfer blow as ‘PSG target Rafael Leao as Lionel Messi substitute as well as Milan Skriniar’.

CHELSEA have reportedly been dealt a double transfer blow as Paris Saint-Germain target AC Milan star Rafael Leao and Inter Milan ace Milan Skriniar.

The Blues’ owner Todd Boehly is determined to bring 23-year-old Leao to Stamford Bridge after Milan turned down an approach during the summer transfer window.

Skriniar, 27, has also long been on the west Londoners’ radar and manager Graham Potter seems keen on the defender, whose contract expires in June.

However, according to Tuttosport, PSG are also keeping tabs on the two Serie A stars.

The French champions see Leao as the ideal replacement for Lionel Messi, whose contract expires in the summer and has been linked with a return to Barcelona.

The winger has a contract until 2024 and the Rossoneri are in talks with agent Jorge Mendes over a possible extension.

The Portugal international has also attracted interest from Manchester City but the Serie A giants are unwilling to sell for less than his €150m (£133m) release clause.

But PSG are ready to trigger the 23-year-old’s clause if he doesn’t renew and Messi leaves.

And the Parisians continue to monitor Skriniar’s situation, with the next few weeks expected to be crucial for his future.

The centre-back was agreed on a £8m-a-year deal in Paris last summer but Inter have refused to sell for less than £60m.

With the Slovakia international’s contract expiring in the summer, Inter will sit down with the player’s representatives after today’s game against Barcelona to try and secure a renewal deal.

If talks fail, the Nerazzurri will be forced to sell the 27-year-old Chelsea target in January lest they lose him for nothing and PSG are reportedly in pole position.
