According to reliable reporter, Gary Jacob, former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero prefers a move to Chelsea over Newcastle.

Chelsea are reportedly keen on bringing Caballero to Stamford Bridge as a backup option to first choice Thibaut Courtois given that Asmir Begovic has departed the club and joined Bournemouth in search of more playing time.

Caballero will likely not feature much should he join the Premier League Champions.

Recent reports had suggested that Newcastle were considering signing Caballero in order to provide current first choice Rob Elliot with competition ahead of next season.

The Magpies endured inconsistency in terms of goalkeeping this past season, with Matz Sels, Karl Darlow as well as Eliott being used.

Cabellero will likely earn more as well as have a better choice at getting first team action should he join Newcastle, however the prospect of living in London is said to be influencing his thoughts on choosing Chelsea.
