The Blues had previously offered Juventus a fee of £35m plus Brazilian Oscar in exchange for the 22 year old French international but having seen that deal turned down it appears the West London side are set to make a straight cash bid.
Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has admitted that every player has a price, with many sources claiming that price would be a massive €100m (£71m), and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will be encouraged to make a big offer well in excess of the club’s current transfer record fee of £50m, paid for Fernando Torres back in 2011.
