Reports emerging tonight claim that Chelsea target, Brazilian right back Maicon, has stalled on a move to the bridge, over the length of his proposed contract.

The 30-year-old defender was all set to join the blues for around £8 million, but the deal had gone quiet with many supporters doubting that it will even happen.

Football Italia has reported that there are complications with the contract, including the length of it. Maicon would like a longer contract than Chelsea have offered him.

With that said, a compromise is set to be reached and the deal should still get done within the next week.
