Demichelis linked with Blues move

August 24, 2010

Martin Demichelis' agent has claimed the Bayern Munich defender is attracting interest from several clubs, including Chelsea.

The 29-year-old Argentina defender has admitted that he wants to leave the Bundesliga champions after being left out of their side to face Wolfsburg last Friday.

Juventus are reportedly leading the chase for Demichelis' signature and his representative Jorge Cyterszpiler admits talks have taken place.

However, Cyterszpiler claims Chelsea are also monitoring the situation, along with Barcelona, Sevilla and several Italian clubs.


"I have always had an excellent relationship with Juve," the agent told

"We spoke with Juventus, but they are not the only club interested.

"There are at least four clubs in for the player, as well as the Bianconeri there are also Barcelona, Chelsea and Sevilla."

Cyterszpiler believes a loan move might be more likely than a permanent switch, saying: "At the moment Bayern don't want to sell.

"In Italy there is also Fiorentina, Napoli and Roma that have always liked him, but it is outside their budget."
