Almost Done – Chelsea Close To Second Summer Signing – Not Griezmann Not Kenedy


Queens Park Rangers sealed a return to the topflight division last season from the Championship, they are headed back to the division two after 2nd placed Manchester City confirmed their relegation with a 6-0 routing on Sunday. But as they return to the Championship, their number 1 goalkeeper, Rob Green might not be going with them. The EPL Champions, Chelsea football club reportedly wants his services for next season’s campaign. QPR conceded 67 goals this season, the worst defensive record, but Green’s form was impressive all through the season. Save for him, it could have been more than 67.

As 32 year-old Cech is set to leave Stamford bridge at the end of the season, Chelsea sees 35 year-old Green, a 12-time capped England international as a perfect understudy and backup to Thibaut Courtois. 2 million pounds is being tabled by Chelsea, and with Green being one of the most-paid players in the relegated side, QPR might not have a choice than to accept the offer.

The departing Czech international has been sidelined ever since the beginning of the ongoing season. And having only been able to appear just 6 times in the Premier League this term, he wants to bring an end to his 11 year-stint with the pensioners. Arsenal have made offers for him, but Mourinho isn’t keen on letting him go to a rival side. Besiktas has made offers of recent and Cech’s agent, Viktor Kolar confirms it. Turkey, France or England, Petr Cech is leaving Chelsea this season.

As the toll of league matches, cup and UEFA games will be heavy on only Courtois, Green, whose contract with QPR expires next season will serve as a handy standby for the blues. And as Mourinho wants experience in the dressing room, Rob Green is the perfect figure for the role.
