He left Fénix in 2021 and migrated to Portugal where he had great performances. His remarkable present and his young age led him to be on the radar of the most powerful teams in Europe. However, despite the fortune that Paris Saint Germain offered him, his future would be linked to the Premier League.
Manuel Ugarte signed a contract until June 2026 with Sporting Lisbon. There they put a termination clause of 60 million euros that Chelsea would be willing to pay to take the services of the Uruguayan midfielder starting next season.
Within that amount, those from London will try to lower it and even place David Fofana in part payment. Although June is just beginning and the transfer market in England will last until September, the Blues have already taken a step forward to add the South American to Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
