Is this the answer?

Bayern Munich has been linked to versatile Chelsea FC defender Trevoh Chalobah off-and-on for months now.

According to a report from TEAMtalk, Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel is pushing to get his ex-charge, who played 31 games under the German coach when the pair was together at Chelsea, over to the Bundesliga:

Thomas Tuchel remains keen for Bayern Munich to try and land Trevoh Chalobah from Chelsea this month, sources have informed TEAMtalk. Bayern tried to sign Chalobah in the summer and have never lost interest in the 24-year-old, who has been unable to play this season because of injury.

Besides, Chelsea have invested in plenty of other centre-backs, which has pushed their academy graduate down the pecking order. With that in mind, Chalobah is keen on talking to Bayern about a potential move to the Bundesliga, TEAMtalk has learned.

Our sources have explained that fresh contact has been made this week between Bayern and Chalobah’s agents. Chelsea want a full sale of Chalobah, rather than a loan. To seal a deal, a payment of £25m will likely be enough.

The interesting part of this report is that Bayern Munich wants a loan, whereas Chelsea prefers an outright sale. How this all ends between the parties — if there is any real outcome at all — remains to be seen.
