The Blues are keen on strengthening at the back to give them more rotation options with John Terry and Gary Cahill, and Miranda has emerged as Jose Mourinho’s preferred option in that position.
Chelsea already signed two big players from Atletico this summer, bringing in Diego Costa and Filipe Luis, whilst also recalling Thibaut Courtois from his three-year loan in Spain.
Atletico will be hoping not to lose another big name to Stamford Bridge, but Miranda’s fine form is sure to see him join a top club in the near future.
