According to O Jogo via Fichajes, Corona has a £21.4million release clause in his contract.

But that is only active until June, with his price tag to soar from the start of July.

Any club looking to secure his services would then have to fork out £34m to lure him away from Estadio do Dragao.

Chelsea are known to be admirers of Corona, with his agent Matias Bunge revealing last year that the Premier League giants had spoken to the ex-FC Twente ace.

Speaking in May, he declared: “At some point we talked to them [Chelsea].

“I cannot say if he’s option A, B or C, now they are rather rumours.

“We’ll have to wait a bit for this to continue moving forward and for the leagues to begin again, and from there see what the next movements will be because the market is a little bit stopped.

“He has two years left on his contract.

“He did awaken a lot of interest for his participation in this particular tournament [Primeira Liga], which has been outstanding and at a high level.

“But now with the current situation of the virus everything has slowed down a bit. The signings are in quarantine.”
