Chelsea make contract offer to Bayern Munich defender David Alaba

Chelsea have made a contract offer to Bayern Munich defender David Alaba.

Alaba is set to become a free agent next summer, which means he will be able to open talks with foreign clubs at the turn of the year as things stand.

Italian transfer expert Nicolo Schira reports Chelsea are locked in talks with Alaba's agent, Pini Zahavi, and have already submitted a three-year contract offer.

However, Alaba is reportedly demanding a four-year deal worth a staggering £14million per year to join Frank Lampard's side in the next summer window.

The Blues also face competition from Juventus, who are said to be “really interested" in acquiring his services, while Paris St-Germain are another team in the running to sign him.
