Good News as Versatile Defender is Now Set for Chelsea's Move as De Ligt's Alternative

Chelsea have received a huge blow in their pursuit of Juventus ace Matthijs De Ligt following reports that the Dutch international has verbally agreed to join Bayern Munich over moving to premier league as speculated.

As a result, the blues have been left stranded despite their swap deal which was rejected by the Italian giants thereby making things a bit hard for Thomas Tuchel in an attempt to bolister his backline.

However according to Express Sport, Chelsea have now turned their attention to Bayern Munich's ace Benjamin Parvad as De Ligt's alternative with th 26 year old set to leave Bundesliga having capped 45times for French national team.

Parvad is expected to be replaced by Matthijs De Ligt at Allianz Arena and therefore a perfect opportunity for Tuchel to land his services amidst shaky backline following the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are still closing in on signing Raheem Sterling with a bid of £50m expected. Todd Boehly is as well considering to try and sign Man United's veteran Christiano Ronaldo in an attempt to sharpen his attacking options.
