Manchester United set to lose out on Damm good winger to Chelsea

by Sam Peoples

Chelsea are interested in signing Pachucha winger Jurgen Damm, according to ESPN.

The 21-year-old Mexican spent previously spent two weeks on trial with Manchester United and was linked with a permanent move after impressing during the trial, something he labelled as a dream he would remember for a lifetime.

However, Pachucha’s president Andres Fassi has claimed Chelsea officials could fly to Mexico in order to hold talks this week.

“Yes, there is interest but we have to see how much they are interested,” Fassi told Medio Tiempo.

“In principle we have a sporting plan for Jurgen and we hope he stays, but if something comes up from abroad, we have to take it into account and if it’s serious, we have to respond, we will have news in the next 48 hours.”

“Chelsea are the club interested, but we have to see how much they are interested, we can’t go ahead of ourselves, we have to wait and see. When it comes to us, it’s a matter of sporting project. We want him to stay and we will see how much Chelsea are interested.

“There is a belief they arrive in Mexico on Thursday to talk with us.”

United were reportedly interested in buying Damm for £500,000 but Pachucha’s £2m valuation put off any potential move which is a shame for Damm as he was clearly in awe by the United experience.

“It was a dream and a really unique experience that I will remember for a lifetime,” Damm said at the time.

“It is amazing that a big team like Manchester United have been interested in me and this was an experience that only happens once in a lifetime and I took it to show my qualities.”

A move for Chelsea will be great for him, so long as he either enjoys being sent back out on loan or getting no game time.
