Is a Deal for Zouma on the Cards!

Is a Deal for Zouma on the Cards!

Jose Mourinho might well have intimated that following the signings of Salah and Matic, Chelsea`s transfer window dealings may be over.

That might well be the case; however there are rumours, published in the morning press, intimating that might not be the case.

Speculation is doing the rounds that discussions are, apparently, ongoing with regards to bringing the St Etienne central defender Kurt Zouma to Stamford Bridge.

With Manchester United also showing an apparent interest, it makes you wonder whether Chelsea have decided to move now rather than wait for the summer transfer window.

However, according to the reports there could still be a bit of negotiation as it is being reported that the French club are holding out for a fee of £18 million for the nineteen year-old central defender.

We`ll endeavour to keep you informed of any further developments.

a good player with a high ceiling to be the best or one of the best in a few seasons, a good player touted as a future France captain by Deschamps, he is still raw but he would be a good business, buy him now and loan him til June when he can team up with cfc during preseason, we have so much talent in the team now, and I feel the future of cfc is secured player wise

News this morning brings us reports that Chelsea are close to securing the signature of 18 year-old Croatian midfielder Mario Pašalić from Hajduk Split. A report on the club’s offiical website confirmed that German-born Pašalić is departing Antalya in Turkey today for London , where he will seal a move to The Blues, who have won the race for a €3m transfer ahead of the likes of Lazio. The club’s statement reads: “Mario Pasalic this morning, accompanied by the club’s team manager Kresimir Mikulandre and spokesman Ante Bilic, left the Kremlin Palace hotel and Hajduk’s training camp in Antalya, and headed for London.” Whilst Dalmacija News went a step further and offered up more detail on the transfer: “Mario Pašalić is not going to Lazio, but to Chelsea. The London club visited Hajduk President Marina Brbić in Milan, and a big change of plan followed because it seems that Lazio’s final offer did not meet €2m (reportedly €1.7m). There was a slightly higher bid from Chelsea, and their advantage is that they would be able to pay immediately, and it is even possible that the player returns to Hajduk on loan.” Pašalić has little top-flight experience but does have two goals against fierce rivals Dinamo to his name, whilst he was also named in the IBWM top 100 young players to watch in 2014. If the reports are accurate, he is set to finish this season in Croatia, and may then join Vitesse next summer, or at the very least move into a more competitive league for the next stage of his development. Other reports suggest he may go to the Eredivisie immediately, with NAC Breda also floated as a destination due to their coaching staff being of Serbian and Bosnian origin (the same reasoning behind loaning fellow Croatian Stipe Perica to them back in August).
