Conor Gallagher wants to be paid the same as midfield CHELSEA FC partner Moises Caicedo if he signs a new contract.

Gallagher has been a sure shot name in the Chelsea line-up whenever available, as Mauricio Pochettino is more than happy with his performances for the Blues this season.

The midfielder has also been skipper at times of the outfit as well. Despite this, the future of the star is still in doubt at Stamford Bridge, and there has been much speculation that he will be sold in the summer.

It is no secret that the club have been splashing the cash over the past few transfer windows – but are getting very close to breaching that financial fair play rule and do not want to get fined or lose points.

Now, Jacobs has claimed that Gallagher would agree a new contract at the club and would lik to sign a deal that is similar to Moises Caicedo, who is reportedly on the £200,000-a-week mark.

Jacobs also claims that it is not a ridiculous pay rise he is looking for, He said: ‘It’s also worth making one thing clear: Gallagher is not being greedy, and Chelsea have not told him to lower his wage ‘demands’ despite some suggestions. Things aren’t even at that stage yet.

‘Chelsea could plausibly still offer Gallagher a new deal, but nothing has progressed as of now. And Gallagher would be looking for somewhere close to what Moises Caicedo earns.’
