Chelsea are ahead of Manchester City in the battle for Sporting Lisbon superkid Bruma. City boss Roberto Mancini attempted to sign Bruma last month, but was scared off by Sporting's asking price for the teen. Chelsea are also interested in Bruma, who has been likened to Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

England WILL be Bruma's next destination once he decides to leave Sporting - and West London the likely location with older brother Mesca doing great things at Fulham.

Mesca began his junior career at Chelsea before making the switch to the Cottagers last year. Unfortunately, he has just been ruled out for six months with a knee injury.
