Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero is in line to earn a new contract, but only if the club are able to fulfil their home grown quota.
That’s according to Telegraph reporter Matt Law, who believes that Chelsea were already planning on offering Caballero a new deal, but the manner in which he dealt with the Kepa Arrizabalaga saga at Wembley has given the club further motivation to tie him down.
It’s thought that the club are impressed with the restraint and professionalism that Caballero showed on the sidelines at Wembley, with the Argentine being denied a chance at facing his former team Manchester City in a cup final penalty shootout.
Caballero may have not got the appearance that he was hoping for, but it appears likely that he will get another year as a Chelsea player. That is, if the club are successful in meeting Premier League home grown regulations, which shouldn’t be a problem.
