Chelsea's failure to sign Kakha Kaladze could ruin Hernan Crespo's move to Milan.Reports in Italy have suggested that talks to keep Hernan Crespo at Milan could now fail after the breakdown of Chelsea's move for Kakha Kaladze.
The Serie A outfit are still keen to thrash out a deal to keep Crespo in Italy and their preference is another season-long loan.
Talks will continue this week, but it is now being claimed that Blues boss Jose Mourinho wants to take Crespo back to Stamford Bridge next season to bolster his striking options.
The failure of Chelsea to sign Kaladze is also being put forward as a reason the Argentine could find himself back in London, as it is believed to have soured relations between the two clubs.
Crespo is expected to meet either Mourinho or Blues owner Roman Abramovich in the near future to make a personal plea to allow him to remain in Italy, whilst his agent Fernando Hidalgo is desperately trying to keep a dialogue between the two sides open.
