Niklas Sule’s failed contract extension talks has given Chelsea some hope to sign him next summer. The Blues were after signing a new centre-back this summer but failed in their plans. Following which a new plan was made which consisted of Niklas Sule’s name as the German has less than 12 months left in his contract.
Niklas Sule joined the German giants, Bayern Munich back in 2017 after showing promising performance for TSG Hoffenheim. Playing four seasons with Hoffenheim, Sule appeared 117 times, while scoring 8 goals besides defending. Seeing Niklas Sule perform well in the back Bayern Munich approached Hoffenheim to sign him in 2017. There was some complications at first due to his pricing but all was sorted out later.
Since joining Bayern, the centre-back has 141 appearances scoring 6 goals in all competitions, to date. While Sule has also lifted 13 trophies with the German side, which includes one Champions League and four Bundesliga titles. However, his time at Bayern Munich might end next summer with his contract ending.
Niklas Sule has a contract until June 30, 2022, and the talks of signing a new one have not been going well.

Following which the new contract talks are halted.
