Chelsea, Actual Madrid and Arsenal be part of race to signal Bayern’s Niklas Sule
Football transfer news: Chelsea supposedly show interest Bayern Munich Defender Niklas Sule. The 26-year-old is nearing the end of his contract and is met with great interest. However, the names of the interested clubs were not revealed. But the Spanish publication Fichajes suggests that Chelsea, real Madrid and arsenal are reportedly interested in signing the defense attorney.
According to the report, the trio wants to lure him for free at the end of the season. FC Bayern does not yet have to agree on a contract extension. The Bavarian side has been very careful with renewals lately, as we saw in the case of David Alaba. So there hasn’t been a solid development around Sule’s contract renewal.
However, Sule got off to a good start for Bayern this season. The German central defender has seven appearances in the Bundesliga, secures two clean sheets. Sule also appeared in the group games of the Champions League that have been played for Bayern. After a strong start, many consider it unlikely that Bayern will let him go.
Julian Nagelsmann, the current Bayern manager, is also a fan of the defender. Nagelsmann believes Niklas Sule is already a world-class footballer and believes he can do even more in the years to come. We can therefore see that Niklas Sule is extending his stay at FC Bayern. But there is also great interest from other clubs.

Niklas Sule only turned 26 in September, which means that he is only in the prime of his career. Hence, the player’s uncertain contract situation has attracted a lot of attention. It looks like Sule will be able to start negotiations with other clubs in January and come to an agreement on a preliminary contract.
Therefore, many clubs across Europe are observing the developments around Niklas Sule. He is actively being watched by a hoard of clubs, including Real, Chelsea and Arsenal. However, previous reports suggest that Sule may make a move to the Premier League. Therefore, Chelsea and Arsenal could have the upper hand at the moment.
Chelsea have been an admirer of the defender for a while and will likely try their luck to sign him. The uncertainty about Antonio Rüdiger’s future will be just one more reason to sign Sule.

Julian Nagelsmann adores the German defender, so it’s no wonder that Thomas Tuchel thinks the same way. Virgil van Dijk, one of the current top defenders, also finds a very promising talent in Niklas Sule. Hence, Chelsea could try to lure him at the end of the season.
With Rüdiger’s future at Stamford Bridge still uncertain, Chelsea could examine their chances of getting Sule on as a replacement. Some reports also claim Bayern are showing an interest in Antonio Rüdiger. However, the German responded respectfully by saying that he is currently hired by Chelsea.
Should Chelsea not come to an agreement with Rüdiger, however, and Bayern fail because of Niklas Sule. Both clubs will need a workable solution to replace the vacant seat that comes with their departure. Therefore, both clubs could try to negotiate an exchange contract between Rüdiger and Sule. This will surely be a deal that will benefit both sides.
Thomas Tuchel is happy about the services of Antonio Rüdiger and hopes that he will stay. However, negotiations are still ongoing and if it falls apart. Tuchel will need reliable reinforcement, and Sule will likely be his first resort.
However, it is still too early to make any assumptions; we can see developments on both sides in the coming weeks. With the international break going on, the clubs have enough time to review their options and make a decision. So we may see some updates in the coming weeks.
