Chelsea deal for Chicago Fire goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina again under threat

Chelsea's deal for Chicago Fire goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina is again under threat.

A move in January stalled and now it is under threat of collapsing due to Petr Cech's departure as technical chief.

Cech's exit that has left the potential transfer deal for 18-year-old goalkeeper Slonina in jeopardy.

That is according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

He tweeted: “Chelsea had a verbal agreement to purchase Chicago Fire goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina for €10M.

“However, following the departure of Petr Cech, it remains to be seen as to whether the deal could collapse. He was 'really close' to joining in January."
