Chelsea are set to land Bayern Munich fullback Willy Sagnol.

The People says Chelsea will beat rivals Manchester United in the race to sign Sagnol for £5 million.

The Bayern Munich right-back has been looking for a way out of the Bundesliga with Chelsea, United and AC Milan interested.

Blues boss Avram Grant hopes French World Cup winner Sagnol, 30, can become a replacement for Portuguese international Paulo Ferreira who is believed to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge after a three-year spell.
