Probably a better business decision than letting him walk away for peanuts a year from now though.
Chelsea did back them selves into a corner by letting his contract run down and reports he and his agent turned down £80k+ a week last year so eventually got a much better deal.

the issue for Chelsea is how do they stop the rest of there great young group of players just running down there deals knowing in the end they can get way over market value.
