Following the recent reports, Chelsea is among the four clubs interested in signing Real Madrid star Lucas Vazquez. The football season is quickly heading towards the transfer window. Now everyone can expect a new link just about every day.
As usual, Chelsea is always at the front foot during this time of the season. Just every player is linked to the Blues and the latest name on their transfer target is Lucas Vazquez.
The Real Madrid star will see his current contract with Los Blancos expire at the end of the season. And according to the Spanish outlet Sport, cited by Sport Witness, Real Madrid want to keep Vazquez at the club but the player is refusing to entertain the club’s offer.
As a result, the La Liga side has offered him a three-year contract, with a ‘reduction of 10 percent on the €3.5m net salary he earns annually.

Meanwhile, the Spaniard believes he deserves an increase if anything and that could lead to him looking for another challenge elsewhere.
Elsewhere, the report claims that Bayern Munich is strongly interested in the Spanish midfielder and is currently the favorites for his signature. However, the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and two other unnamed Premier League clubs are also in the race to sign the Los Blancos star.
Moreover, the Blues are reportedly willing to offer him a better salary, since he would be a free agent by the end of the season.
It also means that if Chelsea is to stand a chance of signing Vazquez, they must significantly improve the player’s current wages.
