Bayern Munich defender Niklas Süle may be on his way out this summer, according to rumors.
In recent months, the 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, with Blues boss Thomas Tuchel looking to bolster his backline in order to make a sustained title assault next season.
Following the club’s Champions League triumph, owner Roman Abramovich is ready to back the German coach and expand on the west Londoners’ European success by bringing in new players.
Chelsea have been tracking a number of elite centre-backs ahead of the new season, and given the uncertainty surrounding the futures of Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen at the club, the club might recruit a world-class defender.
Chelsea has been ‘heavily connected’ with the defender, and Bayern authorities have claimed that talks with the player’s entourage are ongoing, with all possibilities on the table but no definitive decision on his future.
Bayern Munich may decide to cash in on their top player in order to prevent losing him on a free transfer next year.
What Thomas Tuchel has to say about summer signings
“Two or three (signings) might be quite beneficial. It’s a constant thing to never deny change; it’s a constant thing to bring fresh energy, new individuals who question old beliefs, who challenge everyone in training and in games, so I think it’s a positive thing.
