We have been linked with over 100 players this transfer window, I have heard so many “done deals” that never materialized.

We have been linked with over 100 players this transfer window, I have heard so many “done deals” that never materialized.  

Honestly, I think the journalists are clueless about our transfer targets, they are speculating on many players as possible so that when we sign one, they can point us back to their news article.                                                                                                              
Given most of us are playing “Have we signed anybody yet?” game, let us enjoy the speculations even if they are ridiculous as Pepe as to Chelsea.                                                                                                                                                              
Skysports understands that we are competing with Arsenal for Scott Dann. I never knew Arsenal could compete with us for players. We win trophies and we pay the highest salary in England; Dann will be silly to turn us down. Our club is yet to place an official bid for Dann. For now, it is just speculation from a highly regarded news source.                                                                                                                                                                                                         
Harry Redknapp has slammed our bid for Modric. ‘Arry said: 
“It’s a farcical bid.”
“If they’re going to make an offer, make an offer, but £22million for Luka Modric is ridiculous.”
Modric is ‘such a fantastic player, we don’t want to sell him. He’s up there with the very, very best players in the Premier League and I think he can play in any team in the world, he’s that good.’                                                                                                               
I believe what ‘Arry is simply telling us to make him an offer for Modric he can’t refuse,  he is only adding “we don’t want to sell him” phrase to avoid the wrath of Spurs fans.  I believe that is why ‘Arry keeps talking about our Modric bid, he wants to delve into the transfer market but Spurs are not keen on providing him the funds.                                                                                                                                                                                                             
‘Arry might have to sell Modric to make some purchases this summer, expect many more Modric to Chelsea stories this window.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
Have a Blue Day!

European giants interested in signing two out-of-favour Chelsea stars

Published

on

Emerson Palmieri (L) and Olivier Giroud (R) have been linked with a move to Juventus.

Juventus are interested in signing Chelsea duo Olivier Giroud and Emerson Palmieri

According to a report by Italian outlet Il Bianco Nero (h/t Daily Mail), Juventus are interested in bringing in Chelsea duo Emerson Palmieri and Olivier Giroud to Turin.

Giroud has been looking for more game-time as he has not grappled well with his role as a benchwarmer at Chelsea. With the 2020 UEFA Euros starting next summer, Giroud would be even more desperate to secure starts as he vies to secure a place in the French national team. (h/t Daily Mail)

Giroud has previously expressed in an interview that his lack of game-time at Chelsea ‘is worrying’. and has since drawn interest from his ex-manager Antonio Conte at Inter Milan, and from Andrea Pirlo at Juventus. (h/t Daily Mail)

“It’s worrying. I thought I still had a role to play at Chelsea but my playing time is getting reduced a lot. It’s going to have to change or a decision must be made.”

Pirlo is reportedly interested in signing the 34-year-old striker and Italian left-back Emerson in a bid to strengthen his team and rescue his first season in charge of the club which has seen the club to 4th in the table.

Luckily for Pirlo, signing Giroud might not be the most difficult task, considering Frank Lampard’s view that the Frenchman will not be stopped from leaving if he wants to.

“I have a very good relationship with Oli and if ever he felt that it was going to go a different way then I would happily have that conversation with him. But I want him to stay here. I’m open both ways if that ever changes but at the moment he is very important for us.”

Giroud may not have started a single league game for Chelsea this season but Lampard’s words highlight that the club still has a place for him. However, the same cannot be said for Emerson Palmieri.

The 26-year-old left-back has fallen way below the pecking order and is the club’s third-choice left-back behind Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso. He has been reduced to cameo appearances in his time at Chelsea and Juventus are one of the clubs that are reportedly interested in him. (h/t Daily Mail)

Chelsea have a reliable strike-pairing of Tammy Abraham and Werner up front and ample cover in the left-back position. Therefore, any deal that sees Giroud and Emerson leave would not be surprising.

“He will go there” – Former PL boss backs Chelsea star to stay at loan club beyond current season

Grealish and Barkley have formed a formidable partnership at Villa

Tim Sherwood backs Chelsea star Ross Barkley to extend his stay at Aston Villa

Speaking on Soccer Sunday on Sky Sports via HITC (h/t Birmingham Live), former Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has backed Chelsea loanee Ross Barkley to stay at Villa Park beyond this season.

The Englishman has been in fine form since joining Dean Smith’s side on loan in the summer. He formed a strong partnership with skipper Jack Grealish much to the joy of Villa.

Currently out injured, Barkley’s loan to Villa has so far proven to be an unmitigated success for all parties.

“I think Ross has been great for them and I see him staying at the football club.”

Sherwood has backed Barkley to witness in person the majesty of Villa and realise how big of a club they are. He believes the midfielder has seen the back of Chelsea.

“He has seen the back of Chelsea now. I think he will go there [Villa]. He would have walked into the doors and seen how big that football club is.”

As things stand, Barkley remains a part of Frank Lampard’s future for Chelsea. His performances have not grown unnoticed. Chelsea boss Lampard has already informed the player that he has a place at Stamford Bridge going forward. (h/t Birmingham Mail)

Barkley has, over the years, been considered a player with high potential. Unfortunately, he has largely proven himself to be an inconsistent performer.

Given his performances at the moment, he could assure himself a brighter future – whether it be at Chelsea or Villa.

While we don’t deny Villa has a rich history, they are nowhere near their glory days anymore. Chelsea today represent a better choice for players seeking glory and if Barkley truly desires instant success, he will do better if he returns as an improved player to Stamford Bridge.

Failing to continue his good form could see the Blues willing to let him go. After all, Chelsea loaning him out has to do with us having better players at our disposal.

What happens remains to be seen.

David Beckham wants this out-of-favour Chelsea star at Inter Miami

David Beckham wants Olivier Giroud at Inter Miami

A report by El Futbolero (h/t Football.london) claims that David Beckham is keen on bringing Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud to Inter Miami.

David Beckham is a part-owner of the Miami based club that plays in the MLS. Olivier Giroud has had just 47 minutes of Premier League action this season.

The goal-scoring touch of new signing Timo Werner and England international Tammy Abraham is keeping the Frenchman on the fringes of first-team football as he been reduced to the Blues’ third-choice striker.

The report also claims that David Beckham would buy Giroud a mansion in the poshest area of Miami if the ex-Arsenal star agrees to join the MLS side. (h/t Football.london)

The 24-year-old has been used as a ‘super-sub’ in recent times, with his 31 of his last 50 Premier League appearances being from the bench.

Giroud signed a contract extension at the club in the closing stages of last season but has not started a single Premier League for the team this season.

Chelsea sit 3rd in the Premier League after the 0-0 draw against league leaders Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday where Giroud came on for Englishman Tammy Abraham in the last 11 minutes of the match.

Frank Lampard seems to have taken a liking of the Abraham-Werner duo. The two have scored a combined 11 goals in all competitions this season and continue to be Lampard’s go-to men up front.

Giroud joined the Blues from Arsenal in January 2018 and signed a contract extension in May 2020 which runs until June 30, 2021.

The Frenchman would be hoping that his last-minute winner against Stade Rennais last week would be enough to get him some minutes against Sevilla on matchday 5 of the UEFA Champions League.

The Blues are already through to the knockout round but a win for Chelsea will confirm progression as Group E winners.

Ross Barkley has done very well at Aston Villa

Jack Grealish reveals he pestered Chelsea star Ross Barkley to join him at Aston Villa

Chelsea star Ross Barkley is enjoying an impressive loan spell at fellow Premier League side Aston Villa. The move has worked out well for both the player and Villa.

The Villans have skipper Jack Grealish to thank for the role he played in bringing the Chelsea man to Villa Park.

It proved to be an inspired decision. Barkley played a key role as Villa beat Liverpool, Leicester City, and Arsenal this season.

Speaking to Villa TV (h/t Birmingham Live), Grealish admitted that he and Barkley exchanged messages before the move was confirmed.

“It’s been really good, I’ve known Ross for a while now.”

Grealish wanted his friend to join him at Villa if he ever left Chelsea last summer. He got his wish when the midfielder signed for the Villans just days after their impressive win over Fulham.

“I was constantly texting him, before the Fulham game I was saying to him that if he was going to leave (Chelsea) then to keep us in mind.”

Grealish and Barkley have formed a dynamic partnership that has been to Villa’s good form. If they continue to keep it up and evolve, it could also draw the attention of English boss Gareth Southgate.

It could help in Barkley making the England squad for next summer’s Euros. Though the thought of that happening is hypothetical at this stage, there is no reason why merit should go unrewarded.

If all goes well, Barkley will have Grealish to thank for a turnaround in his fortunes.

Barkley is currently recovering from a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him out for two-three weeks. Hopefully, he will return soon and continue to impress.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard too is aware of the midfielder’s resurgence at Villa Park. It remains to be seen if the player has a future at the Bridge.
