Partizan Belgrade president: Markovic a Chelsea player

Partizan Belgrade have announced Chelsea are 'owners' of Lazar Markovic.

The Serbia winger is set to sign for Benfica, but Partizan president Dragan Djuric says he will move there on-loan from Chelsea.

"It is true, Chelsea will send Markovic out on a loan for two years," Djuric told Sportski Zurnal.

"But I really hope that Chelsea and Benfica will not come to agreement so Markovic will stay with us for at least the next six months."
