Chelsea are ready to offload Carlo Cudicini if they land Leeds' Scott Carson.Chelsea are reportedly ready to offload Carlo Cudicini after inching ahead in the race to land Scott Carson from Leeds.
The West London big spenders are expected to bring England Under-21 star Carson to Stamford Bridge in the next few days, despite interest from Liverpool.
Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell has resigned himself to the sale and is expected to accept an offer in the region of £750,000.
Rafa Benitez is ready to fight for the player's signature but it is expected that Mourinho will win the race for the 19-year-old.
If Chelsea do, as expected, complete a deal for Carson, Cudicini is likely to be allowed to return to Italy.
The talented 31-year-old has seen himself usurped this term by Petr Cech and is reportedly looking for a move to rejuvenate his career.
Despite previously having been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Arsenal, it is thought that he will not be allowed to move to another English club.
