Chelsea have cash offer ready for Santos whizkid Thiago Maia

Chelsea hope to do business with Santos over Thiago Maia for £15 million.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea will revive their interest in Maia in January.

The 19-year-old was discussed by Chelsea in late July prior to his participation in the Olympics with Brazil but his club Santos were reluctant to sell before the end of their season.

Chelsea are willing to offer around £15million for the defensive midfielder when the Brazilian campaign finishes in December.

Maia is highly prized by Santos and has a contract until 2019.
