Asier Del Horno's proposed moved to Chelsea has moved a step closer with the player saying that the money on offer is too good for him and Athletic Bilbao to turn down.
The 24-year-old left back is widely tipped to join Roman Abramovich's revolution at Stamford Bridge, with a deal worth €18 million on the cards.
With Del Horno also set to triple his current wage with the Premiership champions, he says that the money involved in the deal is too good for both himself and the club to turn down.
Skysports.com can confirm that Chelsea have all but sealed the signing of Asier Del Horno.
A Chelsea delegation are believed to have watched the 24-year-old play in action for Athletic Bilbao against Numancia on Sunday.
The Blues opened talks about Del Horno over the weekend and a deal is now in place.
Chelsea are expected to complete the signing of Asier Del Horno early next week.
The formalities of the deal have been concluded after Chelsea instructed Jorge Mendes - agent of boss Jose Mourinho - to broker the move.
The transfer, worth a basic €14 million for Athletic Bilbao, will be sealed once the two clubs' top men - Peter Kenyon and Fernando Lamikitz - have exchanged faxes.
