Chelsea bargain deal in place for Vitesse dynamo Van Ginkel

Chelsea have a deal in place for Vitesse Arnhem midfielder Marco van Ginkel. Despite rival offers from Manchester United and Ajax, Voetbal International says the Holland international will move to Chelsea in the coming days for a knockdown €5 million fee.

The discount is thanks to Chelsea's close relationship with Vitesse, which has seen the Dutch outfit house a raft of quality Blues youngsters on-loan over the last two seasons.

"Jose Mourinho was very positive with him during their talks. That certainly plays a role. Yet it is especially important that Marco plays regularly next season," warned agent Karol Jansen.
