Andre Villas-Boas has warned Gary Cahill not to price himself out of a dream move to Chelsea reports The Sun.
The 26-year-old Bolton defender is expected to leave the Reebok Stadium in the January transfer window, as Trotters boss Owen Coyle opted to cash-in on his star player - who is entering the final six months of his contract.
Earlier this weekend it was revealed that the two clubs had reached agreement over a fee - believed to be in the region of £7million - that would see Cahill move to Stamford Bridge.
But it has now emerged that the England international stopper is after wages of around £100,000-a-week, which is £30,000 more than Chelsea are prepared to pay.
"I'm not sure if Gary is going to join us," admitted Villas-Boas. "We are still very far away in terms of agreement — miles apart.
"I think we can sort it out but we also have other targets for this position and we will continue to monitor them."
Liverpool have also been linked with a late move for Cahill, as Reds boss Kenny Dalglish looks to hijack Chelsea's defender target deal.
