Chelsea Make Bid For Real Madrid Full-Back Also Wanted By Juvnetus
Antonio Conte became the first manager to lift the Premier League title in his first season in the country as his Chelsea side won their second league title in the last three years.
The Blues have a fairly strong squad but Conte is desperate to add some quality to his ranks to help them repeat or improve on their performances from the previous season.
This has seen the English club linked with a move for some of the finest players in world football and one player constantly linked with a move to the Stamford Bridge is Brazilian star Danilo.

With two Champions Leagues, one Liga title, one UEFA Super Cup, and one FIFA Club World Cup to his name since joining Madrid under his belt, the 25-year old has just not been able to establish himself in the first team under Zinedine Zidane and has been linked with an exit, right from the end of the previous season.
Chelsea make bid
And it is now understood that Chelsea are desperate for his signature this summer.
According to Don Balon, The Blues are reportedly prepared to make a £22m bid for his services, which could be enough to land him this summer.
Chelsea have used Victor Moses at right wing-back last season to decent effect but Cesar Azpilicueta is currently the only backup in the first team for that position and they are desperate for an addition to the squad for this role.
There are not too many options available in the transfer market and though unproven in England, Conte is confident that Danilo is the right man for his side next season.
However, it is to be seen if Danilo will be the first choice next season, as it will be important for him to find some game time to make it into the squad that travels to Russia for the World Cup from Brazil.

Juventus also desperate
But Chelsea are not the only team who are circling the Spanish capital for the Brazilian full-back.
Italian Champions Juventus, who have allowed Dani Alves to leave this summer, are in desperate search for a right back and are looking at Danilo as an alternative.
It is understood that Juventus have had a bid of £17.5m knocked back by Real Madrid, with Florentino Perez holding out on a fee closer to the £28m they paid to Portuguese outfit FC Porto just two years ago.
Do you think Chelsea can land him this summer?
