Chelsea ahead of Man U and Liverpool as they look to secure top defender

Chelsea are going to be linked with every top defender in Europe until they actually sign some, and that’s very much the case with Matthijs de Ligt.

The centre back was one of the most expensive defenders even when he joined Juventus, and he won’t come cheap, but there’s a sense that the Old Lady may be ready to cash in soon.

Football Italia are still pushing the narrative that Chelsea are interested, and they claim that the Blues are “ahead” of Man U and Liverpool in the “race” to sign De Ligt.

Frankly, we’re not sure we really believe that either of those teams are in the “race”. Liverpool have three very good central defenders, and Man U signed Raphael Varane just a year ago.

Even coming to Chelsea seems a slight stretch, given the costs, but we can see the appeal for the Blues if Juve are willing to play ball with a reasonable price tag.
