We've been seeing Chelsea FC linked to Lazar Markovic for months, with many outlets going so far as to claim that a deal between the two clubs and the player is already done. That seems a bit premature, but it certainly seems like there is quite a bit to the Markovic to Chelsea rumor despite some outlets going overboard.

As with the previous news about Markovic, this is far from official. That said, I'd be pretty surprised at this point if a summer move did not develop, with Markovic likely heading out on loan. As always, this is just one more bit of news to keep an eye on.
