Rumours linking Chelsea with Real Madrid right-back Danilo surfaced last month but Juventus were reportedly more eager to land the Brazilian who has struggled to impress at Real Madrid.
It seems Chelsea’s interest in the former FC Porto defender has grown as a new report claim Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is determined to sign Danilo ahead of Juventus.
A report on Daily Express claims Conte wants to provide healthy competition for Victor Moses in the right wing-back position, and Danilo has been viewed as the man to fit the bill.
The report also claims Real Madrid rejected Chelsea’s £22million bid for Danilo last week. Chelsea are reportedly not giving up on signing Danilo despite Real Madrid rejecting Chelsea’s bid for the Brazilian.
