Chelsea to launch £40m bid for Bayern star
Chelsea could be set to launch a £40m bid for Bayern Munich and Germany star Mario Gotze, according to CaughtOffside.
The 22-year-old has recently expressed an interest in moving to a different league in the near future, and the Blues will now hope to beat the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United to his signature.
Gotze has long been regarded as one of the best young talents in the world, though he has not always found his best form since moving to Bayern from Borussia Dortmund.
