Barcelona and Real Madrid have been added to Manchester City on the lift of clubs who want to sign Billy Gilmour, according to tabloid reports in the Sun today.
The 18 year old Scot was brought to the world’s attention this week with his starring role in the win over Liverpool in the FA Cup on Tuesday. It’s lead to a slew of links connecting the wonderkid with transfers away from Chelsea.
The Spanish giants are natural destinations for any rumour writer dreaming of moves to connect the former Rangers starlet with. But ultimately it’s all pointless speculation.
Billy is a boyhood Chelsea fan, he’s getting chances in the first team at just 18, and he’s got a contract until 2023. We might even see that deal extended within the next 12 months.
So they can salivate over him all they want – he’s not going anywhere, and we don’t imagine he will want to either.
