Chelsea have made it clear they will not sell Levi Colwill this summer despite Bayern Munich’s interest.

No one at Chelsea is entertaining the idea of selling Levi Colwill amid strong interest from Bayern Munich, who are among a list of top European clubs looking at the 21-year-old. Reports linking the English defender to Munich aren't going away, with Sky Germany reporting that Munich have set their sights on Colwill and want to bring him to the Allianz Arena this summer to help new manager Vincent Kompany.

Chelsea are looking to sell the likes of Conor Gallagher and Trevoh Chalobah for what they term as pure profit, but selling Colwill would also count as pure profit and would mean either Chalobah or Gallagher stays.

However, Chelsea chiefs have briefed club media that Colwill is not for sale and will not entertain any talks with the German giants for Colwill, who was left out of the Euros this summer.

LondonWorld has been told the England youngster is looking forward to working with new manager Enzo Maresca, who replaced Mauricio Pochettino, and Chelsea are settled knowing that he’s contracted until the summer of 2029, having signed a long-term deal last summer.

Chelsea showed good form to finish last season on a high, even though winning their last five games and moving from 11th to sixth was not enough to get them Europa League football after Manchester United defied odds to beat Manchester City in the FA Cup.

On the transfer front, Chelsea have already brought in Tosin Adarabioyo to replace Thiago Silva, who left the club after four successful years.
