Anonymous source reveals inside Chelsea transfer deal with situation in the balance

A anonymous source has spoken to The Daily Mail today to reveal some key details in one Chelsea transfer situation that truly hangs in the balance right now.

It sounds like a very complex situation going on, although really, a lot like with the Mason Mount situation last summer, we will always hear completely different sides to the story depending on who is reporting it, and it is always going to be coming with drama.

We are of course speaking about the Conor Gallagher situation at Chelsea right now. Just like Mount last summer, Gallagher has one year left on his current contract this summer and he will either be sold or will need to sign a new contract. It doesn’t seem like their is any issues on Gallagher’s side, and contrasting reports over whether he has even been offered a new deal at Chelsea or not is already coming out (here we go).

The Daily Mail claim that talks over extending his stay have been ongoing for several months, yet Chelsea insiders say the situation remains the same with five games of the Premier League season to go.

Chelsea insist their relationship with Gallagher is strong but they have shown a willingness towards selling him in the past and rivals are poised to swoop this summer.

Chelsea will not let Gallagher leave on the cheap, even if his contract is close to expiring.

Mail Sport spoke to one anonymous source at an interested club who revealed they were told a deal could be done for £40million last summer. Despite his dwindling deal, they fear Chelsea will demand even more now after a season in which Gallagher has showcased his talent.

Add Gallagher’s salary expectations to that – there is an argument that he should earn £150,000 per week – and it would be an expensive purchase for any potential suitor.
