BAYERN MUNICH star Alphonso Davies has admitted to being a closet Chelsea fan.
The wing-back's confession to ESPN has led fans to joke Barcelona will now try and sign him after a summer in which they have been a fly in the ointment of the Blues' transfer plans.
Canada star Davies is the latest Bayern star to be asked by the American sports broadcaster about which British-based side he supports.
His answer was: "I mean… I grew up watching Chelsea…. so Chelsea."
His reply prompted a few Instagram tongue-in-cheek replies suggesting Thomas Tuchel's side should now make a bid for the 21-year-old.
One said: "So you're telling me there's a chance."

In reply to the footage of Davies admitting his Chelsea allegiance, one fan wrote: "Barcelona have agreed personal terms with Davies and are preparing official bid soon."
Another said: "Barcelona picking up the phone as we speak."
