Ross Barkley set to sign for Chelsea

in football •  last year 




World of Sport Reporter: @worldofsport


Ross Barkley is on the verge of joining Chelsea as it’s believed he’s going through a medical at Stamford Bridge. The Everton and England midfielder and his representatives are finalising the transfer.

Barkley would be a free agent next summer so Everton have decided to cash in now. What’s more, it’s a bit of a risk for Chelsea, as Barkley hasn’t played this season due to injury problems.


Everton manager Sam Allardyce said the other day that he was expecting bids for Barkley from the “big boys” before the January window were to close. Tottenham were keen on him in the summer, but it’s believed they lost interest due to the injuries sustained.

Barkley has scored 27 goals in 179 appearances since making his debut for the club in August 2011, after coming through the Everton youth system.

In July 2014 Barkley was rewarded with a mega four-year deal by then-manager Roberto Martinez after starring for England at the World Cup in Brazil.


Barkley has gone on to win 22 caps for England and is expected to be an integral part in the England set up for years to come. He has in the past expressed his desire to play Champions League football, and because Everton haven’t played in it this season Barkley will be eligible to play for Chelsea against Barcelona in the Round of 16 next month.

It’s an exciting move for both Barkley and Chelsea. Everton are a huge club and have investment ready, but they can’t seem to break into the top 6 again. Whereas Chelsea can offer him not only Champions League football but a real crack at winning some silverware.

Ahan its a great signing

Chelsea will have to face Barcelona so if they please like this, may win against BARCA

·

They won't beat Barcelona.

·
·

Why won't they? Is Barcelona not beatable?

·
·
·

Every team is beatable, but Barcelona are better than Chelsea, and will beat them 7/10 times

Barcelona has always been the better side, but in one way or the other Chelsea has a way of withstanding them... Chelsea got past them in 2012 which was one of a bad season for Chelsea, they were 5th in the league because of the bad form in 2012, but when they met Barca, the end stories were different...

Good post

thanks

Chelsea should sign a striker, that is one of the best problem they have got. A piece me off watching Morata waste many chances against Arsenal... Not so good with his leg but very good with the head...

Sure

Nice

Started as a 17 year old at Everton. Some magic moments at Everton esp. the goal away at Newcastle a few years ago. Best years should be ahead of him.

I agree
