CHELSEA have made a £34million bid for Real Madrid centre-back Eder Militao, according to reports.
According to a new report from El Nacional, Chelsea are closely monitoring Eder Militao’s situation at Real Madrid.
The Brazilian arrived in the Spanish capital from Porto in 2019 for £43.5million and has gone on to rack up 57 appearances for the 13-time European champions, scoring two goals.
The 23-year-old has broken through into Carlo Ancelotti’s first team this season, starting all 12 of their LaLiga matches.
Yet despite coming into favour at the Bernabeu, Chelsea are trying to tempt him to Stamford Bridge with an offer that would see his wages increase significantly.
This will come as a welcome news for Militao, who has stepped up his game considerably since the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti. The former FC Porto starlet has built a solid defensive foundation alongside David Alaba that has been critical in helping the club move on from Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
Chelsea tried to sign a new centre-back during the summer transfer window but were frustrated in their attempts to bring Sevilla‘s Jules Koundeto the club.
Militao signed a six-year deal with Real Madrid in 2019 and so remains under contract until 2025.
