Chelsea close to deal for Roma defender

Chelsea are close to completing a deal which will see Roma central defender Philippe Mexes join the club in a pre-contract agreement, according to Italian site,
The French centre-back’s contract with the Rome club will expire on 30 June 2011, but the player can freely negotiate with other teams from the beginning of February, with Roma doubtful that they will be able to keep him at the Olimpico.
It is reported that Chelsea representatives have already contacted the players agent, and are ready with an offer that would double his current earnings, to around £4m per season. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
