Newcastle United have completed the signing of Chelsea star Kenedy.

The Brazilian is reported to have undergone a medical at Tyneside on Tuesday as he gets set to join the Magpies on loan for the rest of the reason.

Naturally a winger, the 21-year has been used as a left wing-back by Antonio Conte at Chelsea mainly in the cup competitions as back up to Marcos Alonso.

His move to Newcastle has been mooted in the press for quite some time but the club has held back their go ahead as they wanted a replacement at left wing-back.

However, Conte is now believed to have sanctioned the move as a deal for Roma’s Emerson Palmieri edges closer.

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez has been calling for new signings at the club and owner Mike Ashley is believed to have loosened the purse strings a little as they look to bolster their squad.

Kenedy has been targeted since the summer but a deal never materialised. Benitez, however, will be pleased as the deal is completed as the former Fluminense youngster will provide the much needed spark and pace needed in his side’s attack that has only 22 goals to its name in 24 Premier League appearances.

Kenedy made only one league appearance for Chelsea last season and has failed to make any in the league this season.

Manchester United will have to contend with Premier League top four rivals Chelsea in their quest to sign young forward Antoine Semenyo.

The Daily Mirror claim that Chelsea have made an enquiry about the 19-year-old.

Antoine Semenyo is on loan at League Two side Newport County from Championship club Bristol City.

Manchester United have been monitoring the player who has been in superb form for Newport County.

The Red Devils had earlier sent scouts to run the rule over the striker in December.

He made his debut for the Robins (Bristol City) towards the end of last season.

Since joining Newport County, Antoine Semenyo has scored six goals for the club.

He was part of the Newport County team that stunned Premier League club Leicester City in the FA Cup earlier this month.

Newport County are in the fourth round of the FA Cup after they defeated Leicester City 2-1 at home.

Antoine Semenyo would definitely be a signing for the future at Manchester United who have enough firepower in attack.

Romelu Lukaku is the second most expensive footballer in the history of Manchester United but the Belgian striker has not been able to secure a starting spot under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Davide Zappacosta

A bid by the English Premier League outfit Chelsea to cash in on wingback Davide Zappacosta might no longer work out as planned as an agreement was failed to reach with Italian Serie A outfit SS Lazio, reports from Italy claims.

Reports according to Calciomercato claim that the agent of the Italy international had held talks with the West London side, where some terms were tabled by Davide Zappacosta’s owners.

The report claims that the West London demand for a six-month loan deal and seek for a fee of £18 million to buy the player after the end of the spell which the Italian Serie A outfit are unwilling o meet as they will only prefer a simple loan deal.

It would be recalled that Davide Zappacosta joined the Stamford Bridge some 18 months back from another Italian Serie A outfit Torino where he was part of the Blues defensive strength but the situation has now changed for him as he is no more a popular face in the lineup.

So far in this season, Davide Zappacosta has seen just two appearances in teh Premier League and gas sat on the bench for the remaining times which is becoming unbearable to him.

Zinedine Zidane

Hazard has dismissed claims that he will consider a move to English Premier League outfit Man United should his schoolboy idol Zinedine Zidane eventually takes over at the Old Trafford.

The Belgium international is reportedly destined for a move to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid but United are reportedly making efforts to tempt him into joining the Old Trafford.

This, therefore, sparked suggestion that the Blues star could have a change of mind and consider a move to the other EPL side should Zidane take over at the Old Trafford.

In his reaction, Eden Hazard admitted that going to Real Madrid without Zidane will make it look different but that will not stop his move because the club has not changed.

He added that irrespective of where the former Real Madrid boss finds himself, he will not be lured to join him but will go straight to the club of his dream.

However, the Red Devils are keen on a replacement for their sacked manager Jose Mourinho despite installing an interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Zidane who is currently without a job since leaving the Los Blancos is, therefore, being linked alongside former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.
