Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing Barcelona defender Marc Bartra.

The 22 year-old centre-half has been a revelation for Barca this season, but is off contract in June.

AS says Mourinho knows all about Bartra having followed his progress while in charge of Real Madrid and rates the stopper highly.

A January approach is now being considered at Stamford Bridge.
