Markovic is widely regarded as one of the best young midfield players in Europe and, at just 18, he is already a key figure for Partizan and is a full Serbian international.

Reports swept Serbia over the weekend claiming that Chelsea and Partizan had agreed a deal and it was only the finer details, such as whether he will move in January or the summer, that needed finalising.

But the player and club have both insisted that no such deal has been agreed.

"I swear on my mother that I really do not know anything about this. On Saturday I spoke with club president Dragan Djuric and he also told me that he knows nothing about Markovic's transfer to Chelsea," Partizan director of sport Ljubisa Tumbakovic told Sportski Zurnal.

"I don't know, he doesn't know. Maybe the journalists have better information than us in the club," he joked.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
