Ex-Vitesse owner Jordania claims Chelsea signed Van Ginkel on cheap

Former Vitesse Arnhem owner Merab Jordania has continued his tirade against their relationship with Chelsea.

Speaking with Voetbal International, Jordania claims Chelsea were able to sign Marco van Ginkel for almost half of an offer from bidding rivals Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg reportedly offered €15 million for the Dutchman, before he eventually joined Chelsea last summer for €8 million.

Jordania said: "I felt like I was giving away the player. Like, here...

"They took Marco and you think to yourself for a nice price, but that had little to do with negotiation."
