According to reports Chelsea FC is set to abandon their bid for Raphinha following the player’s desire to play for Barcelona instead and would be considering the option of a Bayern Munich star.

Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano took to his social media platform to share that Chelsea FC would be considering a bid for German and Bayern Munich star Serge Gnarby.

This would be a massive upgrade from the initial option of Raphinha as Serge Gnarby who has been viewed as a top player might actually consider the move after expressing desire for a possible move out of Bayern Munich as his contract with the club would soon expire.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano:

 Chelsea have started to explore the situation of Serge Gnabry. Raphinha is heading to Barça, Chelsea wanted to understand how’s the state of the negotiation between Gnabry and FC Bayern over new contract. 🚨🔵 #CFCNo approaches from Arsenal or Man City. Chelsea, interested.

This would be a massive addition for Chelsea FC in terms of the quality Serge Gnarby possesses on the ball as the blues would be looking to go all out in their 2022/2023 club football season campaign.

Chelsea would also be looking to bring in defenders to fill in vacant positions left by previous star players Rudiger and Christensen.
