Chelsea fans are looking up with interest from their pints here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro claimed that the Blues are ready to spend some serious money.
The player that seems to have caught the eye of Jose Mourinho is Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos, who as we know is a target for both Manchester United and Real Madrid this summer.
Chelsea are prepared to go all out and in standard Mourinho fashion, blow the competition out of the water by getting that chequebook out.
Kroos has made it perfectly clear that he will listen to offers and should the right opportunity come up, he will leave the Bavarian giants and indeed Pep Guardiola this summer for pastures new.
So keen is Jose Mourinho to pair Kroos up with Cesc Fabregas, that Chelsea will put a £6.7 million per year contract on the table for Kroos and we think that it would take a seriously good rival offer to turn that down!
Chelsea fans. Is Kroos worth that much money or have you gone mad with the chequebook after failing to win anything last season? Let us know your thoughts below.
