Partizan Belgrade starlet Markovic plays down Chelsea deal

Lazar Markovic has dismissed claims that he has agreed a pre-contract to join Chelsea in the summer.

The 18-year old Partizan Belgrade young gun was recently in London to meet with fellow Serbian Branislav Ivanovic as well as tour Stamford Bridge but he insists that no agreement has been reached with Blues officials.

"It is true. I was in London, I toured around London and I was also at Stamford Bridge," he told Sportski Zurnal.

"I met my team-mate from national team Branislav Ivanovic, we talked a little bit.

"I also met peoples from Chelsea but it is not true that I have signed anything yet or something like that. There is no contract, not even a pre-contract.

"I had a great time there but it is far from being over."
