As per the Transfer Oracle Di Marzio, the Sead Kolašinac deal between Chelsea and Schalke 04 is off the table as the German side have changed their mind.
They were apparently willing to sell the 23-year-old left back now rather than lose him for free in the summer — the Telegraph were reporting earlier that Chelsea were in negotiations for this deal today — but for whatever reason, Schalke made a 180 degree turn after a €6m deal was agreed in principle, and that’s despite Kolašinac himself supposedly trying to push the sale through as well.
Kolašinac remains unsigned beyond the summer; according to Di Marzio, Juventus remain the favorites for his signature in that upcoming transfer window, though if he was willing to come to Chelsea now, presumably we could convince him to do the same six months from now.
Either way, this deal looks to be off at the moment, though things can change quickly in the final hours of the transfer window. A little over 24 hours to go.
