Chelsea have been handed a much-needed boost in their chase for Bayern Munich and Croatia star Mario Mandzukic.
Reports in Germany yesterday claimed that the 28-year-old was angling for a move to his old team over a Premier League switch.
However Wolfsburg’s director of sport Klaus Allofs has been quick to respond to the rumours, by admitting there has not been any contact with the Croatian.
As quoted on the Daily Express website, he said: “It’s just a false announcement, there is no truth to it in the slightest.
“I think our board of directors have already said what needs to be said about it: we have not had any contact with the player.”
