A round up of key transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.
On loan Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has issued a deadline to sort out his future.
Chelsea are expected to hold talks with the Belgian, who is currently number one at La Liga high flyers Atletico Madrid.
“About my future, I cannot wait much longer. I need to make a decision with Chelsea as soon as possible, in March, but at the moment I do not really want to talk,” he said according to ESPN.
Several reports have suggested that Wolfsburg have agreed a deal with Chelsea for Kevin De Bruyne.
Speculation over the Belgian’s future has been ongoing this season, as he’s been in and out of the Chelsea first team.
Numerous British papers have reported that the German side have managed to thrash out an £18 million deal for the versatile midfield man.
FC Schalke are keen to take Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin on loan.
Marin has been in loan with Sevilla in La Liga over the first half of the season and reports from Spain suggest the Bundesliga club are keen to take him back to Germany.
Chelsea are believed to be keen on the idea but it relies on Sevilla terminating the loan agreement they currently have with the player and West London club.
