Chelsea fans are looking up with smiles on their faces as The Times claim that one of their young starlets will be offered a new five year deal to keep him at the club.
The player in question is Patrick Bamford, who has set the Championship alight this season, and was even crowned their player of the year, and we think the forward could well make a huge impact on the Blues first team next season should he be given the chance to do so.
Chelsea and Jose Mourinho are huge fans of the player and want to keep him at the club long term, and make him well aware that he is valued, and feel the new five year extension is the way to do that – complete with a pay rise obviously.
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Bamford deserves this or is this just another example of the club throwing money away on a player who will never make the first team? Let us know your thoughts below.
