Chelsea are set to delay their move for Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea were waiting anxiously yesterday to discover the extent of an injury to Ribery before deciding whether to go ahead with a £28million bid for the French international.

Ribery, high on Chelsea's wanted list this summer, is having further investigation on the injury, sustained in the 10th minute of France's 2-0 defeat against Italy.

Chelsea saw the talented Frenchman as the ideal player on the left side of midfield next season, rather than the relatively inexperienced Salomon Kalou and the disappointing Florent Malouda.
