Ross Barkley Signs 5.5 Year, £15 Deal with Chelsea FC

Everton v Watford- Premier League Barkley came close to joining the Blues last summer
Betsy Taylor | 08 January, 2018, 03:44

Barkley was on the verge of becoming a Chelsea player in the summer transfer window.

Barkley, who was on the verge of joining Chelsea in August before the deal collapsed, said: "I'm overwhelmed, I'm looking forward to it and I'm really excited to get started".

"He has this great opportunity to play in a great club, with ambition and great targets, and also to put yourself in this new challenge".

It is as a result of that hamstring problem that the 24-year-old England global has not played a single minute of football so far in 2017/18.

Barkley scored five goals and recorded eight assists in the Premier League last season as Everton finished seventh in the table.

Barkley is reportedly back to full fitness following his hamstring surgery - and could make his debut as a Chelsea player later this month.

Chelsea's top-flight title defence has faded amid Manchester City's stunning form, with Antonio Conte's men facing a 16-point deficit to the summit.

'He possesses outstanding technical and physical attributes, matched with good experience of the Premier League and a strong desire to succeed at the highest level.


Conte urged caution over expectations for Barkley.

Blues chief Conte said: "We are talking about an English player, a young player, with good prospects for Chelsea".

Many have questioned whether Barkley is good enough, but the fact Chelsea and Tottenham were battling for his signature, suggests that some very good judges in the game believe he is.

'He's very young. He has a lot of space for improvement.

"He's a good prospect but it's very important to understand when he can recover from his injury".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is now prospering on his season-long loan at Crystal Palace and fans desperately want him to see him in the Chelsea squad next season.

Ross Barkley is due to undergo a Chelsea medical today and is being predicted to complete a switch to Stamford Bridge by the end of the day.
