Barcelona target Darijo Srna revealed Chelsea contact

Chelsea made an attempt for Shakhtar Donetsk veteran Darijo Srna at the start of the transfer window.

It's emerged today that Srna is in talks to be released from his contract at Shakhtar, so allowing him to join another club immediately as a free agent.

Srna has been linked with Barcelona, which are short of options at fullback.

Yet, at the end of last season. the defender revealed he had offers from "Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund".

"But if for example I had left for Chelsea, I would have to start again from zero. That for me makes no sense," Srna said at the time.
