Chelsea extend two player contracts, two others could still leave

Chelsea have reportedly offered Willy Caballero and Olivier Giroud contract extensions, with the future of Pedro Rodriguez and Willian still in doubt.

Chelsea will keep Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero at the club for one more year, with Willian and Pedro still looking likely to leave.

All four players mentioned above were all running down the final months on their contracts and were set to be free agents come the end of the season.

Chelsea have had more time to reflect on their future as the coronavirus forced the current season’s calendar to be altered.

As per the Telegraph, Caballero and Giroud have been offered one-year extensions but there is still no word on Willian and Pedro.

Prior to the Premier League break, Giroud was poised to join Inter at the end of the season but Chelsea have had a re-think on the matter.

The Frenchman put in a good shift when called upon for injured Tammy Abraham and is still regarded a vital member of the Blues squad.

The same goes for Caballero who was called into action for when Kepa  Arrizabalaga was sent to the bench after a poor run of games.

The report notes that Kepa is still seen as the no 1 under Lampard but Caballero has shown he can be a good back-up option when needed.

The report concludes by saying Pedro and Willian could well be out of Chelsea this summer.

Willian reportedly wants a three-year deal and a pay rise which the Blues can’t offer due to their policy for players his age and Pedro has also revealed he already has offers from other clubs.

Providing Chelsea get the right offers for both players, the duo could well be calling it quits at Stamford Bridge by the end of the season.
