Thomas Meunier has said he is ready for the challenge of battling for a place in the Paris Saint-Germain starting XI with Dani Alves.
Meunier, 25, arrived at PSG last summer and has made a name for himself at the Parc des Princes, stepping in for Serge Aurier at right-back and moving ahead of him in coach Unai Emery's plans late in the campaign.
Although Aurier is expected to leave, the arrival of three-time Champions League winner Alves means competition remains high.
Alvaro Morata is set to make his first appearance for Chelsea in the International Champions Cup preseason friendly against Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but Antonio Conte has said he will not start the game.
Bayern Munich are not entirely happy with their current 12-day tour of Asia and will put the format "up for discussion" when they return to Germany, president Uli Hoeness has said.
Having lost to Arsenal and AC Milan in the first two matches of their 2017 tour of Asia, Bayern left China for Singapore, their third and final stop before returning to Germany. There, the tour will come to an end with matches against Chelsea and Inter Milan in the International Champions Cup.
