Blues planning cash plus Timo Werner in a swap deal to sign £103million world class player

Chelsea is preparing a trade proposal for Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt.

Gianluca di Marzio of Sky Italia reports that Chelsea is preparing a £38 million offer for the 22-year-old Dutchman, together with Timo Werner.

De Ligt wants to quit the Bianconeri after heated negotiations over a new deal fell down on Thursday.

A player with a £103 million release clause would be more desirable to Juventus.

Werner, a forward for Chelsea, is reportedly attracting interest from Juventus, but his reputed £270,000-per-week salary may be problematic.
