Jose Mourinho is eager for Chelsea to push for pre-contract talks with Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

Valdes comes off contract at Barca in June and is free to sign a pre-agreement with a foreign club from January 1.

The Spain international has made it clear he won't go back on his decision to leave Barca at the end of this season and Mourinho is eager to bring him to London in the summer, says AS.

Mourinho wants Chelsea to secure Valdes' signature as soon as they can and a bumper package worth €10 million-a-year is being drawn up for the keeper's representatives to consider.
