Chelsea transfer news: Mandzukic heads to Spain, Ba set for exit?

A round up of transfer stories about Chelsea this morning.

Atletico Madrid have snapped up Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic.

The Croatian had been tipped to join Diego Costa in the Chelsea attack next season but has opted for a move to Spain instead.

German tabloid Bild claims a £17 million deal between the two clubs has been agreed.

The Daily Mail claims Everton are keen on doing a loan deal for Blues striker Demba Ba.

Ba is way down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge following the arrival of Costa and could be open to leaving.

Everton loaned Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea last season, who turned out to be one of their most important players.

Chelsea reportedly continue their chase to land Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis.

The Brazilian has been linked with the club for most of the summer as Jose Mourinho mulls over how to improve his back four.

The sticking point seems to be price with Atletico holding out for the full £19 million amount of his buy-out clause.
