It wll be perfect to have Maka for another season!!...really perfect! and he is still good enaugh to play and we need to have hope that Mikel will be good as him after 2 years-

I don't think Mikel will ever be the same sort of player as Maka, Mikel offers us something different in that position.

Would be nice to have Maka stick around and even better to keep around in a coaching capacity long term..

Chelsea midfielder Claude Makelele has agreed to move to Paris Saint Germain, according to French radio station RMC.

The news will be a surprise to the Stamford Bridge fans as, despite being a veteran, the 35-year-old has been a popular and key figure for Chelsea in the last five years.

The Parc des Princes outfit approached Makelele for the first time in summer 2007, but the midfielder decided against returning to France.

It appears the former France star, who announced his international retirement following Les Bleus’ elimination at Euro 2008, is ready to embark on a final challenge with PSG.

Paris’ new president Charles Villeneuve wants the club to bounce back after two catastrophic seasons and signing domestic stars Makelele and Lilian Thuram is reportedly his priority.

An announcement is yet to be made by Chelsea or Paris Saint Germain, who were unavailable for comment when contacted by setantasports.com.

It has also been reported that France reserve Jimmy Briand, currently playing for Rennes, has also agreed a summer move to PSG.

Wow, that does come as a surprise. Fantastic player over the years for us, but he really is past his best unfortunately. Mikel and Essien have effectively replaced him, but he is a Blue legend and I shall miss him should he leave.

It is a very suprising story. Although i do think that maybe it is time to let Maka move on and for us to build our midfield without him. I thought he may have ended up with still in some sort of coaching capacity - but doesn't look likely now.
