Lopez to Chelsea a done deal; will be finalised upon Begovic sale

By Oliver Fisher -

Diego Lopez looks set to be putting an end to his time on the Milan bench as he will complete a move to Chelsea.

According to Gazzamercato.it, the deal is done for the 34-year-old shot-stopper.

The former Real Madrid goalkeeper emerged as somewhat of a bright spot for Milan during the 2014/15 season, but was restricted to the bench due to the emergence of young prodigy Gianluigi Donnarumma.

An official announcement of the move is expected to be made as soon as Chelsea confirm the sale of their own back-up goalkeeper in Asmir Begovic.
