After having a summer offer for RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol rejected, Chelsea will “100%” make another attempt
Following a string of spectacular performances in recent months for both club and country, Gvardiol is currently among the most sought-after centre backs.
Romano stated in September that Leipzig ‘turned down’ a transfer offer from Chelsea for Gvardiol during the prior transfer window. Gvardiol ultimately decided to sign a one-year contract extension.
The Blues are reportedly engaged in a bidding war with Manchester City and Manchester United for the Croatian international, according to the French publication FootMercato. According to reports, the City citizens offered £85 million plus add-ons for the highly regarded youngster, while the Blues and United submitted offers ranging from £77 million to £82 million.
However, according to dependable Sky Sports Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg, Gvardiol’s contract has a €110 million (£96 million) release clause that goes into effect in 2024. When the 6 foot 1 ace does leave Leipzig, though, it’s uncertain when that will be, making it likely that he will become the most expensive defender in history.
In the upcoming transfer windows, new Chelsea manager Graham Potter will undoubtedly be eager to leave his mark on the first-team roster at Stamford Bridge. In order to obtain Gvardiol’s signature, the West London group is “prepared to assault” and claims that he is still “a name on the list” of targets.
