Chelsea in summer battle to land in-demand La Liga star

Former Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez is reportedly in the race for Chelsea transfer target and in-demand Valencia star Juan Bernat.

It is no secret that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is looking to add a long-term replacement for the club, as Ashley Cole edges closer to the exit signs.

Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta, who is right-footed, has filled in admirably this term in Cole’s place but Mourinho would like to add quality competition and cover in his position.

And he see’s young Bernat as the ideal candidate to come in and do that.

However, according to the SportsDirectNews website, the Napoli boss has set his sights on the Valencia left-back and an end-of-season offer is likely to follow.
