Chelsea in strongest position to sign Dutch international with clause set to be lowered » Chelsea News
A new centre back may soon be on the cards for Chelsea, with a number of their own players in the last year of their deals at the club and one or two could leave.
Antonio Rudiger looks most likely to be the main one that will leave as a free agent in the summer, but there is no guarantee that Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, and Cesar Azpilicueta will all definitely sign new deals yet.

Matthijs De Ligt is a main target to come in and replace one or any of the above names, according to Tuttosport.
They claim that the Dutch international’s agent Mino Raiola, is currently trying to negotiate a new deal at Juventus for De Ligt that will add one more year to his contract BUT it will also reduce his high 120 million euros release clause.
As translated by Caught Offside, they name Chelsea as being in the strongest position to sign the 22-year old centre back and say this makes the deal more realistic for any suitors.
