Chelsea offer Michael Essien huge pay off to complete AC Milan transfer

Published on: 23 January 2014
Essien has been offered a big payoff deal by Chelsea

English side Chelsea are ready to give their Ghanaian midfielder Michael Essien a pay off to convince him to move to AC Milan, a report in the UK newspaper Metro claims.

Essien, who spent last season on-loan at Real Madrid, is out of favour at Stamford Bridge and Jose Mourinho has given him permission to leave the club.

However, despite Milan making an approach to sign him this week, the Ghanaian is not willing to accept the switch, as he must take a pay cut.

Essien is on hefty wages at Chelsea, which the Serie A club are refusing to match, but the Blues are ready to come to an agreement.

According to reports, they are ready to pay off the remainder of 31-year-old’s contract – as an incentive to complete a move to the San Siro.

Essien’s agent has spent the last few days in Italy trying to thrash out an deal with new boss Clarence Seedorf – who wants to add to his midfield options.

If Essien does leave, he will be the latest Chelsea star to be cleared out by Mourinho following the departures of Kevin de Bruyne and Juan Mata.

    Man, this is far more better than I thought. Take it and scram. You are a very lucky man indeed. Who knows, you might even get a much lucrative contract after the world cup. But Meanwhile, a bird in hand is better than 2 in the bush. So take this one for now.
