Chelsea’s hunt of a new centre back this summer continues, as do the rumours.
One player who has been linked with the club for sometime now in a story that went rather quite, seems to be reigniting again with the players future still not concluded.
I also have some significant exclusive news on Chelsea’s pursuits of Erling Haaland and Gianluigi Donnarumma here.
His high wage demands are causing an issue for Barcelona and Real Madrid, who were expected to be one of the clubs he would most likely be moving to.
We are of course talking about Bayern Munich centre back, David Alaba.
And according to a new exclusive report from The Daily Star, Chelsea have finally joined the pursuit in terms of an offer for Alaba.
They will now join Manchester City in a battle to sign the Austrian international when he becomes a free agent at the end of this season.
Chelsea’s name has always been in the hat, but wage demands were noted as a stumbling block for them previously, but this report claims that is not an issue.
