A brief roundup of the latest transfer stories about Chelsea.
Chelsea will reportedly double Sami Khedira’s wages to €4.5 million after tax in an attempt to lure the German to Stamford Bridge.
News broke of Chelsea’s interest last weekend with Jose Mourinho apparently looking for extra strength and power in the middle of his Chelsea side.
Khedira has two-years left to run on his contract at Real Madrid and it’s interesting that the story has broken via El Confidencial, a pro-Real Madrid news source.
Chelsea have ruled out selling defender David Luiz to German giants Bayern Munich.
Pep Guardiola was thought to have asked for a £35-40 million bid to go in for the Brazilian centre back but Chelsea are ready to stand firm and dismiss any bids for the player.
Jose Mourinho said roughly two weeks ago that there was no chance David Luiz would leave the club, as he’s an integral part of the first team at Stamford Bridge, dispelling the myths that he’s not suited to Mourinho’s style of play.
Chelsea could soon know more in the on-going saga surrounding Wayne Rooney’s future.
Manchester United boss David Moyes is flying back to the UK to reportedly hold showdown talks with Rooney, after a suggestion earlier in the summer that he saw Rooney as back up to Robin van Persie at Old Trafford.
Chelsea are thought to be biding their time over a second bid for the striker, hoping the situation becomes untenable for Rooney at the club, making it easier for them to sign him.
