Chelsea have been dealt a transfer blow as the agent of teenage goalkeeping sensation Gabriel Slonina has declared the player wants to join Real Madrid . At just 18 years of age, the Chicago Fire shot- stopper has already made 25 MLS appearances.

He also earned his first call-up to the USMNT squad in November of 2021. Slonina's contract expires in 18 months but a host of big European clubs have already declared their interest in the American wonderkid.

Despite Chelsea's interest, Slonina's agent Jame Garcia has pleaded with the MLS and Chicago Fire to allow his client to complete a 'dream' move to Real Madrid. Garcia stated (as per Football.London ):

"It should be an honour for Chicago and MLS to have Real Madrid take notice of one of their players. We are hoping Chicago can find an agreement with Real Madrid to realize Gabriel's dream of playing for this club.

He's worked very hard, he is an unbelievable person, player as well, but the person is remarkable. I've met few to no people who work as hard as he does. He's a very smart and courageous young man."

"With respect to other clubs and other offers, we've received many, and at the moment, we are gracious to those clubs, but you cannot say no to Real Madrid.

This has the potential to be a great situation for everyone - but the MLSPA and Agents need to work together to protect these players. We can't have clubs in the MLS asking for exorbitant prices."
