Chelsea appear to be doing some real transfer business behind closed doors right now.
Often with these types of deals, reporters will either be kept in the dark, or asked to keep details under wraps until a deal is evolved enough to reveal it.
Well, whether they like it or not, Ben Chilwell’s move to Chelsea being advanced to the medical stage is leaking.
According to two reliable Leicester insiders, Chilwell has started packing up his stuff at the Leicester training ground, and he is now due a medical at Chelsea in the next few days.
Apparently Chilwell packed up his stuff at training ground today.
Medical at Chelsea next couple of days.

Understand the deal for Ben Chilwell will be a world record deal for a left sided full back.

Chelsea sources then began picking up and seemingly confirming the news. Although it is still yet to really reach the many of the mainstream reporters.
As I type this, The Times have picked up the story and agreed that Chelsea have made a breakthrough in negotiations for Chilwell.
So not only does this story have legs, it appears to be moving very fast now and would suggest that negotiations have been ongoing for some time.
