Chelsea have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Atletico Madrid’s Arda Turan from under the nose of Manchester United.
The Turkish international midfielder has admitted that he is looking to leave the Vicente Calderon this summer.
His agent has claimed to have held talks with as many as four clubs, two of which appear to be giants of the Premier League.

Reports from Turkey on Monday suggested that Turan was due for a medical at Old Trafford after United agreed a £29m deal.
However, The Guardian now understands that Chelsea have been offered the 28-year-old, who has scored 20 goals in 163 games for Atletico and helped them to the La Liga title in 2013-14.
Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have also been credited with an interest in Turan.
