Claude Makelele is agonising over PSG's long-term contract offer.
The Independent says Chelsea are bracing themselves for Makelele informing them that he wants to leave after being offered a two-year deal, with an option for a third, by Paris St-Germain.
The 35-year-old Frenchman has only just returned to training from holiday and has been mulling over the offer. Although he will be paid far less than at Chelsea, the offer of such a long contract - at his age and with just 12 months left at his present club - may sway his decision.
Nevertheless he and his family are settled in England and he may decide to stay where he is.
