Bayern already talking with Levi Colwill

Bayern already talking with Levi Colwill

Under Todd Boehly, Chelsea seemingly have been the masters of their own destiny in terms of conducting business in the transfer market.

Say what you like about the American billionaire, but he knows how to close a deal.

His way of working too – buying players then tying them to much longer contracts than has previously been considered the norm – has changed the way the transfer market works in this country.

It’s fair to say that he has been ruthless as far as both managers and players are concerned too, even to the extent where captain, Conor Gallagher, still isn’t safe from being sold, even if the will of the player is believed to be that he prefers to stay at Stamford Bridge.

One player that has appeared to be untouchable, even under Boehly’s regime, is international class centre-back, Levi Colwill.

Still only 21 years of age, the defender managed 35 games in all competitions for the Blues last season, per WhoScored, however, according to transfermarkt, he still missed 15 because of a variety of injury concerns.

Bayern Munich want Chelsea’s Levi Colwill

Unless Boehly is in dire need of the money, there seems little point in selling a player whom he only handed a six-year contract to a year ago upon completion of his loan move to Brighton and Hove Albion.

That said, Sky Sports Germany reporter, Florian Plettenberg, has posted on X (formerly Twitter) that Bavarian giants, Bayern Munich have already had talks with the player.

Although he’s only being seen as a potential back up option if a move for Jonathan Tah fails to materialise, the fact that the Bundesliga outfit are already circling could be a worry for Enzo Maresca, who will surely be counting on the England international for 2024/25.

There’s plenty of time before the start of the season of course, and it remains to be seen if Bayern have the appropriate pull for the youngster.
