Chelsea rival Man Utd for want-away Sagnol

Chelsea are ready to rival Manchester United for Bayern Munich fullback Willy Sagnol.

United have been monitoring Sagnol's deteriorating situation at Bayern after the France international fell out with coach Ottmar Hitzfeld earlier this season.

However, they will face competition from Chelsea, with Tuttosport reporting the Blues will move for Sagnol as coach Avram Grant seeks an experienced fullback.
