Porto winger Jesus Corona has been linked with a move to Chelsea since 2019, and talks about the Porto star hasn’t died down, even with the appointment of Thomas Tuchel.

There is a clause in the Mexican’s contract that will see his valuation fall each year if the club does not sell him.

Corona’s agent, Matias Bunge, made it known last year that Chelsea have signalled an interest in the Porto star.

Reports from Portugal claim that Chelsea are keeping tabs on the Mexican who has made 40 appearances so far this season and has scored three goals and picked up 11 assists.

“When Corona renewed the contract, for two more years, that is, until 2022, the value of the termination clause decreased,” Bunge told A Bola last year.

“In reality, there have been conversations with several clubs, but with the emergence of Covid-19 everything changed, and for three months the clubs were practically stopped.

“But the scenario is going to start to change and I think the market is going to start to cheer up because the clubs are co-hosting the needs they have.

“They (Chelsea) asked about his situation. But the same thing happened with other clubs, although none of them exercised a formal approach for Corona.”
