Espanyol goalkeeper admits he almost signed for Chelsea

Espanyol goalkeeper Diego Lopez admits he almost signed for Chelsea last summer.

The 35-year-old keeper is on-loan at Espanyol from AC Milan.

“There was an opportunity last summer,” said Lopez.

“I was very flattered by the interest from Antonio Conte. I do not know if it will be maintained this summer. Last year for me was a priority option but now things have changed, and I do not know what will happen now, but it is a great one in Europe, possibly winning the Premier League.”

“My speech has not changed at all and my intention is to continue with Espanyol. I hope we can do it,” he added.
