Chelsea face competition from AS Monaco for Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic.

New Blues boss Jose Mourinho wants to bring Matic back to Stamford Bridge this summer and has asked club owner Roman Abramovich to bid for the Serb.

However, Record says Monaco are also interested in Matic and have the spending power to trump Abramovich.

Benfica are insisting on Matic's €50 million buyout clause.
