Bayern Munich Want To Sign Chelsea’s Jose Bosingwa

Bayern’s search for a right-back continues and Chelsea’s Portuguese full-back is the latest to be linked with a move to the Allianz Arena…

It’s no secret that Bayern Munich need to sign a right-back and, according to a report in Bild, new trainer Louis van Gaal has earmarked 26-year-old Chelsea full-back Jose Bosingwa as a prime candidate.

It had earlier been thought that a move for Shakhtar Donetsk’s UEFA Cup winning captain Dario Srna was imminent, but the thinking is that he is too much of an offensive player for Bayern.

Bosingwa only joined Chelsea last summer from Porto and has a contract with the London club until 2011. He has been a regular for the Blues this season, notching up 34 games and scoring two goals.

Should the Portuguese international be out of Bayern’s reach, then John Heitinga of Atletico Madrid is considered another option for the Bavarians, according to the same source.

The 25-year-old Dutchman is represented by former Bayern player Soren Lerby, who has been spotted at the club this week.
