Chelsea target sends cryptic message as Enzo Maresca ‘closes’ in second move

Chelsea target Marc Guiu has posted a cryptic Instagram story amid reports he is set to become Enzo Maresca’s second signing. The new Blues manager has already brought in Estevao Willian, with the talented Palmeiras winger arriving at Stamford Bridge next summer.

Reports have emerged that west London bosses have been talking about Barcelona teenager Guiu as they target an attacking addition this summer. The 18-year-old has made seven appearances for the Spanish giants and scored two goals, but he is reportedly on the verge of a move to Stamford Bridge.

On Tuesday, the towering forward posted to his 1.5 million Instagram followers through his story an image of a religious message that read: “God is making a way. Isaiah 43:19.” Spanish newspaper AS claimed Chelsea will pay his £5m release clause and Fabrizio Romano suggested the deal was done to take the Spaniard to the Premier League.

“Marc Guiu to Chelsea, here we go! The club has just informed Barça about its plan to activate a termination clause of 6 million euros for the forward born in 2006,” he reported.

“A verbal agreement has been established with Guiu’s agents, and formal steps will now proceed later this week. Guiu is expected to sign a long-term agreement with #CFC.”

Chelsea have been speculating fiercely over arrivals and departures during the early weeks of the summer transfer window. The Blues pulled out of a deal to sign Michael Olise after the Crystal Palace winger reportedly opted to move to the Bundesliga, signing for Bayern Munich under new manager Vincent Kompany.
