Chelsea will have to make RB Leipzig’s Josko Guardiola the most expensive defender in history if they are to sign him in January.
This is according to Fabrizio Romano (via Give Me Sport).
The Blues are keen to sign Gvardiol, who shone with Croatia at the just-concluded World Cup in Qatar.
Gvardiol scored once as his country clinched third place, ahead of Morocco.
“Now, Leipzig wants more than €90m. They are hoping to get more than €100m to make Gvardiol the most expensive centre-back ever.
“Chelsea is still working on it. They are still in contact with people close to the player and Leipzig,” Romano said.
