Marco van Ginkel's agent says personal terms not yet agreed

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

The Dutch player's agent has confirmed that Chelsea are interested, but did not confirm a deal

Earlier today we brought you news of a potential agreement between Chelsea and Vitesse which claimed we'd beaten out Ajax to reach an agreement with the Dutch feeder club for the transfer of wonderkid Marco van Ginkel for a quoted sum of €8.5M.

The report was carried by national newspaper De Telegraaf, and within hours, it has seemingly prompted the player's agent, Karel Jansen, to step forward with something to say:

"Chelsea are interested, we don't deny it ...

... The situation is that we wait until after the European championship and then will look for the best step.

Marco still has two years under contract at the GelreDome, so we don't know if he will leave Arnhem but there isn't an agreement right now."

The last quote in particular would appear to cast considerable doubt over any potential agreement. While Jansen has indeed stayed clear of ruling out Chelsea's are interested (and might, for all we know, pretty close to wrapping up a deal), his words also indicate an agreement hasn't been struck as swiftly as the morning's news perhaps made out to be.

Nothing major to worry about here though — constant back-and-forth occurrences like these are an unavoidable part and parcel of any transfer season; whereas if the club truly is serious about getting their man, then taking Vitesse's apparent disinclination for dealing with any other club into account, there's absolutely no hurdle that can keep the Blues from coming to an agreement for van Ginkel. For what it's worth, I don't expect a very long wait.
