Chelsea are claimed to have entered talks with Borussia Dortmund to sign highly-rated defender Neven Subotic, stealing a march over rivals Manchester United and Real Madrid.
I won’t be teaming up with you: Dortmund defender Neven Subotic (right) looks set to snub Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo and sign for Chelsea
Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen to bolster his defence after injuries to first-choice pair John Terry and Alex earlier this season caused problems earlier this season.
And according to German daily Bild, Chelsea have launched an opening £17.5million offer for the 22-year-old Serbia international. (Daily Mail)
Carlo Ancelotti is clearly keen to strengthen his threadbare defence after seeing his side struggle in recent weeks, something the West London club must have known would have occurred when they offloaded Ricardo Carvalho to Real Madrid.
To be fair Jeffrey Bruma looks like a player with a lot of potential but Neven Subotic would be a great signing but it would take a lot of persuasion to convince Borussia Dortmund to sell one of their prized assets. The Serbian international has been in fine form and would surely be tempted by such a high profile move even though his club are the runaway Bundesliga leaders.
Roman Abramovich is apparently ready to bankroll the signing of some young stars to help reverse the ageing nature of the Chelsea squad.
