Chelsea hope to make progress on Gonzalo Higuain deal by end of week

Michy Batshuayi is still waiting to be given the green light from Chelsea to join Monaco on loan for the rest of the season after agreeing terms with the Ligue 1 club.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will find out at the end of February whether or not they will be hit with a partial stadium closure or ban on travelling fans for the anti-semitic chanting during their final Europa League game against Vidi.

Uefa on Tuesday confirmed that disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the Blues based on the report submitted by the ethics and disciplinary inspector who looked into the case.

The Uefa control, ethics and disciplinary body will now rule whether or not Chelsea should be punished at their next meeting on February 28, seven days after the club’s Europa League last-32 game against Malmo at Stamford Bridge.

That means Chelsea will not be forced to close part of their stadium for the Malmo game and supporters will be able to attend the first leg in Sweden on February 14.
