Jose Mourinho to offer £30m for star
Chelsea are keen on signing Athletic Bilbao centre back Aymeric Laporte, with the reported help of Adidas.
Jose Mourinho wants to bring in a long term replacement for John Terry, having been linked previously with Raphael Varane and Mats Hummels.
However the Blues seem to have turned their attentions on signing Laporte for £30 million, funded by global sports brand Adidas.
And Chelsea are set to match the 20 year old French defender’s buyout clause.
Laporte has an expensive boot contract with Adidas, who would like to see him end up at one of their partner club’s Chelsea.
