Published

According to report, Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is pushing for FC Barcelona to beat Premier League champions Chelsea and La Lga champions Real Madrid to the transfer of Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi next summer.

The Argentina international attacker believes Icardi, 24, could be a superb upgrade on South American forward Luis Suarez, who has since declined in form this campaign after a rather poor stat in front of goal.

Normally, the Uruguayan is a real threat in front of goal, he has just five goals in 17 matches for Barcelona so far this campaign, while Mauro Icardi has been in great form with a 100% Serie A record.

Helping Inter Milan to mount a serious title challenge for their first League crown since 2009/10 season, Icardi has netted 13 goals in 13 matches in the Italian Serie A so far, and seems like he could be a perfect fit at the Camp Nou.

As per Gol Digital, the Blues are interested in signing Icardi to strengthening their attacking options, and could even make the move as early as January.

The Sun, have also listed Champions League winners Real Madrid as major contenders for Icardi to cost a whopping £100million.

The latest news comes from French publication Don Balon, who now claim Lionel Messi is eager for FC Barcelona to battle for the striker, with the Argentine pair enjoying a good relationship off the pitch.

Gonzalo Higuain

In a bid to have a firing attack, English Premier League outfit Chelsea went ahead to secure the signature of Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus on a loan deal but with an option of a buy at the end of the season.

Before his signature, The West London outfit suffered lack of cutting edge in their attack with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud failing to deliver goals and that went a long way in affecting their season especially in the first half.

The Blues boss Maurizio Sarri had insisted in Gonzalo Higuain as the best fit to solve the problem at the attack and the player he wants to work with owing to their past relationship, a decision that was greeted by divergent reactions.

However, it has been suggested that the Blues boss made a big mistake to have moved in for Gonzalo Higuain despite scoring twice since he joined the club.

The Blues are told they should have moved in for Krzysztof Piatek who was in great form with Italian Serie A outfit Genoa before moving to AC Milan and he has been an unchanged figure at the San Siro.

Krzysztof Piatek has been scoring in virtually all games with their last game inclusive. That is what Chelsea were actually looking for.

Jorginho

There is no doubt that Jorginho is the most criticized player in the Chelsea team owing to his poor performances in recent times.

According to former Man United striker Dimitar Berbatov, Jorginho is badly treated by the fans and pundits for their criticisms of the player because of his kind of passes that is not seen as progressive.

The record has it that Jorginho has the highest number of pass3es in the Premier League but that has not been regarded by the fans because they are mostly backward and sideways passing which has not helped the team in going forward.

Berbatov has now come to the defence of the former Napoli player, stressing that he is a very good player but what is needed to be done is a change in decision by the Italian manager Maurizio Sarri to be able to bring the best out of the star player.

The former United player stated that Jorginho has been proven in Italy to be a good player, not9ing that what the former Napoli boss must do is to have French powerhouse N’Golo Kante close to him so that the best of hi can be seen.

According to him the job of passing and having to get hold of the midfield could be a more tasking job for Jorginhio.

Sarri had earlier blasted the players for being difficult to motivate before he claimed they had no idea about his playing style which remains a worrisome development for fans and pundits on how they will excel without knowing how to play the manager’s style.

However, Chelsea are hoping to bounce back with the Italian manager under pressure to deliver at the club or risk being sacked as speculations over his future is increasing by the day.

Kenneth Omeruo

Jorginho

There is no doubt that English Premier League outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has much love for Jorginho, probably because of their relationship as they both came from the Italian Serie A outfit Napoli in the last summer window.

The first decision made by the Chelsea boss is to have Jorginho take over the role of French powerhouse N’Golo Kante at the midfield with the former Leicester City man moved to a more advanced role.

This was met with criticisms with pundits disagreeing with the Italian boss on his decision as they affirm that N’Golo Kante is the right man as the midfield holder. Jorginho was heavily criticized and blamed for his poor outing against Man City which led to their embarrassing defeat.

Whoever, Maurizio Sarri has been told he has no reason to stick to Jorginho as he has got Ethan Ampadu to count on for the job.

Ethan Ampadu who failed to make an impact in the first opportunity given to him against Sheffield in the Wednesday FA Cup is tipped to still hold the key to the club’s future because of the potentials that are glaring for all to see.

However, pundits have held the opinion that Kante is allowed to return back to his natural role.
