Man United, Bayern Munich and Dortmund interested in unwanted Chelsea player
| Last updated
Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are all interested in Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah, it has been claimed.
The Chelsea academy product looked set for an exit this summer, but a deal failed to materialise at the time.
And with the Blues keen to sell Chalobah, Bayern Munich are said to be interested. Indeed, Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel gave Chalobah his breakthrough during his time at Chelsea, and the relationship between the pair is said to remain positive.
In turn, Team Talk’s sources claim that the Bavarian giants are an option for a potential deal in January.
Meanwhile, Bayern’s Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund are also ‘extremely interested’ in a deal for the centre-back, with the club’s representatives having allegedly spoken with Chalobah’s agents about the prospect of a move there in the new year.
Yet both sides would face competition from United, who are also allegedly monitoring Chalobah’s situation closely and considering a move to try to keep him in the Premier League.
Team Talk added that Chelsea will be looking for a fee in the region of £45million for the player, despite him having not featured in a single competitive match for the club this term.
Moreover, Chalobah is said to be keen to stay in England if possible, while a move to another top-six side would be “hard to refuse”.
The 24-year-old, who turned down a transfer to Nottingham Forest in the summer reportedly wants to play European football.
Yet it is uncertain whether Erik ten Hag’s United will enter a bidding war for the player, given the Old Trafford club’s limited budget in the coming window.
Chalobah has made 63 senior appearances for Chelsea, having been at Stamford Bridge since he was 14.
