'Not for sale': Some Chelsea fans don't want to lose player who's 'the next big thing' amid reports

Plenty of Chelsea supporters on social media tried to warn off the reported attention from AC Milan for Valentino Livramento.

According to Goal, Milan have asked about the availability of Livramento, in case their pursuit of signing Fikayo Tomori collapses.

Although it seems pretty improbable the Serie A stalwarts won’t get their man, they still want options on standby.

Livramento is now apparently on that list, having impressed for Chelsea’s U21 side this season.

RONALDO NEEDS TO STOP WHINING.

Blues fans were not impressed by Milan’s approaches and warned that their terrific teenager was not up for grabs.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Its been a brilliant – and somewhat breakthrough – campaign for Livramento.

The 18-year-old was named Chelsea’s Academy Player of the Year and earned a call-up to train with Thomas Tuchel’s senior squad.

He was named on the substitute bench for two Premier League ties, but failed to make an appearance.

However, there are fears from within the player’s personal camp that these opportunities in the first team won’t come around as often.

Places in Tuchel’s group are already heavily contested, without the added pressure of returning loanees and possible summer arrivals.

Able to play anywhere down the right channel, Livramento faces competition from Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta in defence.

Not to mention the likes of Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kai Havertz in attack.

But talent can often prevail, a trait that Livramento will hope can impress Tuchel ahead of next term.
