Chelsea close in on £28 million deal as ‘cash-strapped giants’ looking to cash in

Shock reports have claimed Benfica have slashed their asking price for long-term Chelsea target Nicolas Gaitan.

The Blues have been linked to the 26-year-old Argentina midfielder for a long time, but a move has failed to materialise.

However, the Daily Mirror website says Benfica are ready to accept around £28m for Gaitan, in hope chasing clubs will step up their chase and finally get a deal done.

The Portuguese giants are currently cash-strapped and could sell a number of top stars to balance their books. © 2017 Frontier Theme
