Athletic Bilbao keen on Chelsea right

Bosingwa looks to be heading out of Stamford Bridge this summerReports from Spain have claimed that Athletico Bilbao are very keen on landing Chelsea’s current right back Jose Bosingwa. The 28 year old has not had the best of seasons with many suggesting it is perhaps time he departed the West London club.

The Portugal international has been susceptible to injury since joining the club in 2008 but Athletic are looking to make a summer offer for him nonetheless during the summer. News from West London also suggest that Chelsea are prepared to accept any decent offer for Bosingwa who was once labelled as one of the best in the world.

Should Bosingwa decide on a move to Bilbao then he shall have to do so with the knowledge that there will be no Champions League football next season, something that could be guaranteed elsewhere. He would however be in with a chance for a role in the Europa League with Bilbao currently in 5th place, two points above their nearest rivals Sevilla.

The Chelsea defender is currently valued around £15m but it is believed the West London club are likely to accept around £5m less for the former Porto right back.
