Chelsea find themselves in yet another transfer battle to sign a player, after they had got an early lead in this race.

It’s obviously totally normal for top players to have interest from more than one club at a time. But we were under the impression that Chelsea were the only club looking to sign Juventus defender Matthijs De Ligt this summer as our negotiations to get him continued on.

But yesterday, the German media dropped a bombshell that Bayern Munich had joined the race and were attempting to get ahead in this move themselves.

They’re claiming that De Ligt prefers a move to Bayern.

However, the even more reliable Gianluca Di Marzio put his report on the situation out last night, and he challenges the German reports and actually suggests that De Ligt prefers to move to the Premier League this summer, rather than the Bundesliga.

The report is positive on a Chelsea move, being able to meet the fee demands. But he also says Juventus do not want to take any players as part of the deal.
