Chelsea can wrap up world class £70 million deal as World Cup winner ‘asks to leave’ Bayern Munich
Chelsea have been left on hot alert after long-term target Thomas Muller reportedly asked to leave Bayern Munich.
Chelsea are reportedly making contact with players’ agents as they plan for a busy January transfer window in the hope that their current ban is lifted, as the Blues expect the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to cut short their transfer ban, which was imposed by FIFA in February.
It will mean that Lampard will be able to delve into the clubs transfer kitty and add a few players to the squad that will add some experience, and quality in the right areas of the pitch.
And despite having the brilliant Tammy Abraham up front scoring on a regular basis for the club, there is still a need to add some back-up for the young Englishman as he will not be able to do everything on his own, meaning Chelsea will need to add a top-class striker to the squad in the coming windows.
After 19 years with the club, Bild report that Muller has decided to leave after growing tired of a lack of playing time under Kovac, as Muller has started just three league games this term and has lost his spot in the side to Philippe Coutinho, who joined the club from Barcelona last summer.
The German’s current deal runs until 2021 and it has been reported that the German giants would be seeking a massive £70 million to let one of the biggest players go, especially as they will want to use those funds to help on improve the current side.
There is no doubt that Abraham is one of the hottest young strikers in the game right now and having him on top form is a massive bonus for the Blues, but he would certainly benefit from learning from a top-class striker like Muller in the coming seasons, especially as he is still developing in the game.
So if there is chance for Chelsea to make a move and possibly secure a deal for Muller, they should definitely make a move as he would be a great superstar signing for the club.
