Abraham talks over new deal stall

Discussions between Chelsea and striker Tammy Abraham over a new deal have stalled, with money the main sticking point.

The 22 year old is unhappy with what the club are offering, and wants to match the £180,000 performance related salary a week which his team mate Callum Hudson-Odoi receives. Hudson-Odoi is now one of the best paid teenagers in world football, alongside Jadon Sancho – who might soon be joining him at Stamford Bridge – but he was able to negotiate his deal from a strong negotiating position. His contract was about to run down, and Bayern Munich were waiting to pounce for him.

Abraham is not in such a strong situation because he still has two and a half years left on his current contract, so Chelsea are hoping that he is willing to compromise, and that he joins other players who have recently agreed new deals with the club, including Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Fikayo Tomori.
