Chelsea prepare huge January bid for Newcastle star

Chelsea are set to launch a big money bid for Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko in January, as reported by the Daily Star.

The Blues are said to be plotting a £17m move for the French ace, who revealed his desire ‘to play for the biggest clubs.’

He arrived in the North East in January 2013, in a cut-price £1.8m deal and has been repeatedly linked with a move to other clubs.

The Les Blues international is under contract until 2019 at St. James’ Park, but believes his ‘time will come’ in his ambition ‘to play in the Champions League.’

Newcastle are said to be about to offer the player a bumper new deal to significantly improve his current £35,000 per week contract.

Chelsea may be looking to strengthen their attacking midfield position, where the 26-year old largely operates, though he is able to play further back.

Boss Jose Mourinho loaned out both Juan Cuadrado and Mohammed Salah to Serie A giants Juventus and Roma respectively, and despite signing Barcelona attacker Pedro – could be looking to add more depth.
