Spanish giants Barcelona are turning the tables and making a move for one of English football’s hottest prospects.
Chelsea prodigy Ruben Loftus-Cheek, 16, has been targeted after Barca saw him score for England schoolboys against Wales last year.
Midfielder Loftus-Cheek has starred for Chelsea’s academy and under-18s.
And Barcelona are aware there is also interest from both Manchester clubs.
The teenager has yet to sign a deal at Chelsea and the European champions hope to reverse the trend and snatch a bright young hope themselves. Barca are fed up with their kids being luring to the Premier League.
