Antonio Conte is looking for a new centre-back to revamp Chelsea defence in next summer transfer window.
The Italian manager targeted Hoffenheim defender Niklas Sule but the German international reveals he rejected Blues offer to join Bayern Munich in the end of this season: Carlo Ancelotti‘s side recently closed the deal for £ 22m.
“Both offers came almost simultaneously,” Sule told to German media TZ.
“Of course it was huge for me that the Premier League leaders showed interest in me.
“But it felt better to stay in the Bundesliga.
“And Bayern are the top address, there is nothing greater in the world.”
