Premier League

Huge Announcement as Versatile Defender Viewed as De Ligt's Alternative

Chelsea's efforts to sign Juventus star have suffered a severe setback. Following speculations that the Dutch international had orally decided to join Bayern Munich rather than making the rumored move to the Premier League, Matthijs De Ligt.

As a result, Thomas Tuchel's efforts to strengthen his backline have been a little more challenging because the blues have been left stranded despite their exchange proposal being rejected by the Italian giants.

However, Express Sport reports that Chelsea has now shifted its focus to Benjamin Parvad of Bayern Munich as a replacement for De Ligt, with the 26-year-old likely to depart the Bundesliga after 45 appearances for France.

In light of the fragile backline caused by the exits of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, Tuchel has the ideal opportunity to secure Parvad's services at Allianz Arena where Matthijs De Ligt is anticipated to replace him.

Chelsea is still in the running to sign Raheem Sterling, and a bid of £50 million is anticipated. In an effort to improve his attacking alternatives, Todd Boehly is also thinking about trying to sign Christiano Ronaldo, a veteran of Man United.
