Chelsea reaches deal to sign Marin


LONDON — Chelsea began preparing for next season on Saturday with an agreement to sign Germany midfielder Marko Marin from Werder Bremen.

The west London club, which still has a Champions League final to prepare for and three English Premier League games remaining, said on Saturday it has agreed to a fee for the 23-year-old playmaker and that Marin has accepted its offer of personal terms.

Chelsea did not say how much it would pay for Marin. Bremen paid Bundesliga rival Borussia Moenchengladbach about €8 million ($10.6 million) for him in 2009.

"We finalized the last details during the course of the day," Bremen general manager Klaus Allofs told Sky television on Saturday.
