Chelsea are ready to enter a player-partnership agreement with Malaga.

The Daily Express says the Blues loaned out Lucas Piazon to Malaga in January in order to get more game time under his belt.

Chelsea are believed to be happy with Malaga's handling of Piazon's loan deal and would like to conduct business on a more regular basis.

Reports from Spain indicate that Chelsea are willing to send more players over to La Rosaleda in the future on loan or for a small transfer fee which would include a buy-back option.
