Chelsea want to sign Josko Gvardior alongside City and Real Madrid. RB Leipzig are demanding €90m for the defender

Man­ches­ter City and Real Madrid have report­ed­ly joined Chelsea in the race for RB Leipzig defend­er Josko Gvardior.

Chelsea have tried to sign Croa­t­ian star Gvar­dior, 20, over the summer.

How­ev­er, efforts to move him to Stam­ford Bridge for €90m fell through as he signed a new con­tract at Leipzig.

Since his sen­sa­tion­al debut at the FIFA World Cup last Novem­ber-Decem­ber, Gvar­dior’s prospects have con­tin­ued to grow.

Gvar­dior was expect­ed to be the defend­er of the tour­na­ment, but Croa­t­i­a’s sec­ond straight finals run was lost to Lionel Mes­si’s Argenti­na in the semi-finals.

Accord­ing to Fab­rizio Romano, via wet­tfre­unde, City and Real Madrid are inter­est­ed in the high­ly rat­ed defender.

How­ev­er, the trans­fer is more like­ly in the sum­mer than in ear­ly January.

Chelsea have been favorites for a long time as they made their bids in the final 24 hours of the sum­mer trans­fer window.

“80 mil­lion euros + an addi­tion­al pay­ment of 10 mil­lion euros, a total of 90 mil­lion euros, sign­ing the play­er until June 2023.

“Leipzig refused, decid­ed to keep the play­er and extend his con­tract, so in the end noth­ing happened.
