​Chelsea leapfrog Real Madrid, Juventus in chase for Bayern Munich defender Alaba

Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign Bayern Munich centre-back David Alaba.

The veteran Austrian, who has been with Bayern for practically his entire career, has not signed a new contract.

His deal expires in the summer, and he can sign a pre-contract with a European club in January.

According to AS, Chelsea are at the forefront to sign him.

The Spanish source claims the Blues will hold talks with Alaba and his agents in the New Year.

They will try to convince him that his future lies at the Stamford Bridge club.

Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, along with Manchester City and Liverpool, are also linked with Alaba.
