Chelsea look set to fail in their bid to land Schalke 04 starlet Max Meyer after he revealed he was happy at the Bundesliga club and was keen to sign a new deal.

Jose Mourinho was reportedly impressed by the 18-year-old after he broke into the Royal Blues first XI earlier this season and looked more than comfortable stepping up a level in quality from the second team.

Chelsea's interest in Meyer was reportedly going to culminate in a €15million offer for him in the January transfer window, despite him only having a £15million release clause in his deal.

Schalke appear to have been sparked into action by the interest out of Stamford Bridge and are set to offer the young midfielder a new contract, which will presumably remove of raise said clause.

Meyer's response to talks over a new deal will have encouraged Schalke and so disappointed Chelsea, as he admitted he was happy in Gelsenkirchen and welcomed new terms.

"I am really happy I seem to be so much in demand," he told Deutsche Pressagentur.

"I have read about an interest from Chelsea in the newspapers. But I am feeling great being at Schalke.

"We are in very good negotiations with Schalke and I think we will be able to come up with a result in this before the end of the year."
