Breaking news this morning reports that Chelsea may finally be getting their wish to sign Daniele De Rossi.

It appears that the doors to a deal have been kicked wide open following an agreement between PSV Eindhoven and Roma for the £15 million acquisition of Kevin Strootman.

Jose Mourinho has always admired De Rossi and tried signing him at Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

But this is the part I am worried about, the supposed deal is on a weekly walary of £110,000 for 4 years.

Personally, I would have preferred 2 years before renewal.

De Rossi is good, cheap (an £11m fee reportedly agreed) but he will be 30 in October, is that something we should concern ourselves about?
