​Bayern Munich defender Alaba pumps brakes on Chelsea links

Bayern Munich defender David Alaba is cooling on the possibility of moving to Chelsea in the summer.

Links in recent weeks had suggested Alaba wanted to sign for the London club, and they wanted him as well.

However, Sky Germany claims there are no plans within Alaba's camp to talk to Chelsea about a move to the club.

The same report indicates Chelsea do not want the Austrian either, as they are happy with Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma as their first choice pairing.

If the Blues do sign a defender, they want someone younger who is aerially dominant, and can eventually replace Silva in one or two years.

But Alaba is still unlikely to renew with Bayern, per the same report.
