Corinthians wonderkid Gabriel Moscardo has ruled out a January move amid interest from Chelsea and PSG.

The two European giants are keen to sign the Brazilian midfielder in the January transfer window. Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly seen their first offer of 22 million euros rejected by Corinthians who, according to Foot Mercato, value the player at 40 million euros. Chelsea also saw their initial offer of €20 million rejected by the Brazilian club.

Today, the 18-year-old himself responded to all the transfer speculation by stating that he has no plans to leave his club.

The young player confided in La Gazeta Esportiva: “There is a lot of talk about my future, but I am very grateful to wear this jersey. I am very happy. It’s a big club and I’ve been here since I was a kid. I leave these rumors to my agent, I live my reality. My reality is that I will return to Corinthians in January. I am very enthusiastic. I am young, I like new experiences, I want to learn.

PSG sporting director Luis Campos also confirmed that the club is in talks with Corinthians. Campos was quoted by journalist Fabrizio Romano: “We are informed of the best talents in the world, of course. Nothing has been sealed or signed yet.”

The French giants are currently a step ahead of the Blues in the Brazilian’s transfer race, but it remains to be seen whether either club will end up matching the €40 million value of the Corinthians.
