Chelsea were also linked with a move for Militao three years ago, but were beaten out by Real Madrid. Militao joined Real Madrid from Porto for £42.7 million in 2019, making him the club’s most expensive defensive signing.
Chelsea are interested in bringing him to Stamford Bridge this summer. Especially if contract rebels Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave. Chelsea must also prepare for life after Thiago Silva, Because his current contract expires in the summer of 2024.
Rudiger, a Germany international, is expected to leave Chelsea at the end of the season and has piqued the interest of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Thomas Tuchel was said to be ‘frustrated’ by Chelsea’s lack of activity during the January transfer window, but he will be supported with at least three key signings in the summer.
Chelsea could also sign Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, who was close to joining the London club last summer.
