Conor Gallagher wants to be paid the same as midfield 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 CHELSEA 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.’

Gallagher has been a big part of that CHELSEA starting side this season – but if the club want to progress – is he really the type of player that will help drive the club forward.

He may want that pay rise – but it is much more likely that he gets sold.
