Chelsea are preparing to battle Real Madrid for Ghana international left-back Baba Rahman.
Rahman has impressed at Augsburg in the Bundesliga this term and reportedly caught the eye of Spanish giants Real.
Some reports have suggested that Real have already agreed a deal for the 20-year-old that would see him loaned back to Augsburg until 2017.
However, the player’s agent Sascha Empacher has today denied that is the case.
He told Bild: “The fact that Baba is associated with Real Madrid in the media is, of course, already a great honour. “His achievements have brought him to the attention of the world’s best clubs. “But we have not negotiated with Real.”
