TA: Kent made positive progress in renewing his contract, Chelsea Football Club winter window aimed at the midfielder.
According to The Athletic network well-known reporter David Ornstein reported that Chelsea and the French midfielder Cantor’s contract renewal negotiations, has made positive progress a few days ago. There is growing belief that the 2018 World Cup winner will stay at Stamford Bridge.
Cantor’s current contract with Chelsea expires at the end of the season, while The Athletic reported in September that he was unwilling to accept the new terms offered verbally by Chelsea this summer. At the time, Chelsea proposed a two-year contract extension with the 31-year-old, plus an one-year extension option, while the players wanted a longer contract extension.
Cantor has been out for a long time because of hamstring surgery. The possibility that the two sides cannot reach an agreement and that the players will leave the team freely seems to be getting higher and higher. But Chelsea have always wanted Cantor to stay-they see the industrious midfielder as a legend and a hugely popular figure in the team. The two sides recently resumed talks, raising optimism about the prospect that Cantor might complete a contract renewal.
The duration of the contract extension remains one of the key issues, but Chelsea are making active efforts to reach an agreement to ensure that the player, who is considered one of the best midfielders in the world, can continue to serve the team.
With the passage of time, overseas clubs have been able to initialize contracts with Cantor from January 1. Cantor has no shortage of suitors in Spain and France. Within the Premier League, there are plenty of clubs willing to bid for him.
In addition, regardless of the progress of Cantor’s contract extension, Chelsea will strive to strengthen the team. The Blues are expected to bring in at least one new signing in the upcoming winter transfer window. They have a specific interest in Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Bellingham, while other candidates under consideration include West Ham midfielder Declan Rice and Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo. And Manchester City youngster Romeo Ravia. However, these players also have other suitors, and it is not clear whether they will move or where they will go.
