Bayern Munich hold preliminary talks with Andrea Belotti, Chelsea transfer is now off the table


According to reports in La Stampa, German giants Bayern Munich have made contact with Torino over Italian striker Andrea Belotti.

The 23-year-old, who has had numerous clubs linked with his possible signature, has been in sparkling form this season for his current club who have reportedly drawn up a €100 million release clause in his current deal to clubs outside of Italy who may want to do business.

Chelsea and Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Italian with Diego Costa and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s uncertain future at their respective clubs.

However, with Bayern stepping in, Chelsea may want to shift their attention elsewhere as the Bundesliga Champions seldom lose out on their transfer targets.
