    Chelsea move for Man City old-boy Stefan Savic


    Chelsea & Stefan Savic

    Man City fans will no-doubt remember Stefan Savic.

    Stefan Savic joined Man City in 2011. The Sky Blues paid £6 million for the defender, who lasted just one season at the club.

    After failing to make the grade at City, Savic joined Fiorentina. He stayed with the Viola for three seasons before making the move to Atletico Madrid in 2015.

    Now 27, Savic is under contract with Atletico until 2020.

    But the rumours on Wednesday are that Chelsea could sign the Montenegrin this summer.

    Juventus & Atletico Madrid

    Savic played 27 times for Atletico last season. However the Rojiblancos’ preferred centre-half partnership is the Uruguayan international centre-halves Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez.

    With Savic struggling to lock down a first team berth, Italian transfer guru Gianluca di Marzio has linked Chelsea with a move.

    Di Marzio claims that Chelsea are leading the race to sign Savic, although Juventus are also in the picture.

    Indeed, Di Marzio claims that Savic and Chelsea have been in “contract for some time”.

    Sadly Di Marzio fails to state how much Savic would cost.

    Does Savic to Chelsea make sense?

    Chelsea fans may be wondering if signing Savic is the right move for the Blues.

    Chelsea are stocked with centre-halves. They already have Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill and Antonio Rudiger fighting for places. And that’s before considering the youngsters coming through the ranks.

    Would Savic be able to usurp that competition to start for Chelsea? That’s debatable.
