Chelsea in talks to trump Man Utd for Atletico Madrid defender Joao Miranda

Chelsea are moving to beat Manchester United for Atletico Madrid defender Joao Miranda. The Daily Star says Chelsea could make a stunning £24m move for Miranda. The Blues have already raided Atletico for £32m star striker Diego Costa.

United are interested in the Brazilian centre-half, who has a £24m release clause in his contract.

Louis Van Gaal is desperate to strengthen his defence following the exit of experienced duo Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.

But the 29-year-old would reportedly prefer to join Chelsea - not fallen giants United.
