Announcement today: David Ornstein confirms £10m Chelsea deal is all signed

Reliable journalist David Ornstein of The Athletic has confirmed that the £10m Chelsea deal has all been signed and confirmed ready for an announcement today from the club.

It’s been the confirmation that we have all been waiting for, but Chelsea fans will today finally have this heavily-reported deal done.

Enzo Maresca will today be announced as the new Chelsea head coach arriving from Leicester City. It’s no exactly been a secretive deal, with every outlet knowing about it and it’s basically been confirmed for many days now.

But although some reliable reporters have said this was all agreed days ago, Ornstien says the contract was officially signed just yesterday between Maresca and Chelsea, as was an agreement for Chelsea to pay Leicester the £10m compensation fee for taking their manager.

What Ornstein is saying

The young coach is joining Chelsea on a five-year deal, which includes a club-held option to extend by 12 months.

Maresca will be bringing six of his own staff with him — Willy Caballero, Danny Walker, Michele De Bernardin, Marcos Alvarez, Javier Molina Caballero and Roberto Vitiello.

But they will also be integrated with Chelsea specialists such as Ben Roberts, Hilario and Bernardo Cueva.

It will be great to finally see the announcement from Chelsea today so we as fans now know where we stand and who will be in the dugout officially next season and hopefully beyond.

Maresca has a very tough task on his hand to try and bring Chelsea back to challenging at the very top of the league again, but it looks like the club have a lot of belief in this appointment and they want to change the style of football played at The Bridge.

The Italian will integrate a possession-based style of play and will get to work on that in pre-season.
