Bayern 'waiting for contact' from Chelsea over Bosingwa
Wednesday 12 August 2009
Bayern Munich claim they are "waiting for contact" from Chelsea as they step up their bid to sign Portugal full-back Jose Bosingwa.
The Bundesliga giants' general manager Uli Hoeness says the Blues promised to contact them after Sunday's Community Shield clash with Manchester United, which Chelsea won on penalties.
Hoeness was reported as saying in the Daily Mail: "We are still interested in Jose.
"We need a strong, experienced defender on the right side, especially if we use (Franck) Ribery in a more offensive role, as is being considered.
"We want only Bosingwa and have no interest in any other player for this position. Chelsea agreed to give us a signal after the Community Shield that they were ready to talk and we are waiting for contact from them."
