Chelsea go head to head with Juventus in race to sign Danilo

Chelsea are in the race with Juventus to sign Real Madrid right-back Danilo.

Antonio Conte is looking to land Real Madrid’s Danilo and is reportedly set to go head to head with Juventus.

The Premier League champions, who finished seven points clear of runners-up Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League last season have been newly linked with a summer swoop for the out-of-favour Real Madrid full-back.

Juventus are yet to be defeated in their pursuit of Real Madrid right-back Danilo, with the Italian side determined after losing Dani Alves earlier in the week.

Although the Brazilian is seemingly at home at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, a lack of appearances behind the favoured Dani Carvajal could see him tempted by the switch.

Joining Madrid from Porto for around £26m in 2015 the Brazilian struggled to secure a regular role under Zinedine Zidane last season.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio the Samba star could be available for around £17.5m this transfer window.
