Cairo: ‘If Chelsea want Belotti…’

Torino President Urbano Cairo insists “we haven’t received a Chelsea offer for Andrea Belotti, but we are here and I’ll ask him if he’s happy to remain.”

The striker has a €100m release clause in his contract, valid only for clubs outside of Italy, and there are growing reports Antonio Conte wants Il Gallo.

Torino President Urbano Cairo insists “we haven’t received a Chelsea offer for Andrea Belotti, but we are here and I’ll ask him if he’s happy to remain.”

The striker has a €100m release clause in his contract, valid only for clubs outside of Italy, and there are growing reports Antonio Conte wants Il Gallo.

“We set a release clause for Belotti at €100m, so if an offer from abroad came at that price, I couldn’t do anything about it if he accepted,” Cairo told reporters at an event.

“As far as I know, there has been no offer from Chelsea, but we are here if it does happen. I will meet with Belotti to ask him if he’s happy to remain at Toro.

“It’s fundamental that a player of Belotti’s importance stays with us not just because he is under contract, but because he is happy to do so. It’s something that needs to be verified, but I have no reason to doubt him.

“We’ll also need to talk about a potential deadline for any sale and won’t discuss it beyond that date.”
