Abramovich could cash in on star player after €60m offer

Published

on

Having pulled out of the race to sign Roma goaltender Alisson in the summer, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is now keen on bringing Thibaut Courtois to Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.

The Belgian international could be forced to move out of Stamford Bridge due to the team’s failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

According to AS, Real Madrid are set to offer €60m bid for the Belgian international before the start of next season.

Though the offer looks too low considering the goalie’s experience and exploits for Chelsea in their forgettable season, that price is also good enough for the goalkeeper who conceded more than 40 goals in a season.

Eden Hazard is another player who might be joining Courtois in the move towards Stamford Bridge’s exit door according to the same publication.

The Belgian playmaker was out of form for the larger period of the season — an unusual occurrence which could be traced to his unhealthy relationship with Antonio Conte.

With one year left in both players’ contract with the Blues, Abramovich must convince them to renew their respective contracts before the start of next season. He could also decide to cash-in on their signatures in the coming transfer period.

Meanwhile, both players have been named in Belgium’s 35-man provisional World Cup squad which was released by Ronald Koeman last night. They are surely going to make the final 23-man squad should there be no case of injury or sickness.

Emerging reports indicate that Chelsea powerhouse N’Golo Kante might be unhappy at the Stamford Bridge over the new role being handed to him by manager Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea legend, Tony Cascarino observed that the French midfielder has been drafted to a more advanced role in the Sarri team and he is looking unsatisfied with the development.

He noted that Kante is known with his popular holding midfield role and that has made him the player he is today in addition to helping Leicester City secure their Premier League title as well as helping Chelsea with same title the next year.

Kante was also positioned in the same role with the French national team where he helped the Blues win a World Cup trophy at Russia.

Cascarino stated that with the new position, the French man is looking unhappy and may decide to find his way out knowing the number of top European clubs seeking for his signature.

According to the former player, if the situation remains the same, Chelsea could lose the World Cup winner because all he wants is to be happy and enjoy his game.

European clubs like Paris St-Germain, Spanish giants Real Madrid and Juventus are reported to be seeking the player’s signature with all clubs willing to break the bank for him to leave the Stamford Bridge.

Former player Jamie Redknapp has made a strong claim on Chelsea hero Ross Barkley after he saved his side from an embarrassing home defeat against Manchester United on Saturday.

Barkley had come in from the bench to help steal a 86th minute 2-2 equalizer as his side were losing by 2-1, no thanks to United’s Anthony Martial who struck twice to cancel Antonio Rudiger’s first half lead.

It is already becoming a trait for Barkley who also came in to help his England national team secure a 3-2 win over Spain in the UEFA Nations League during the recently ended international break.

According to Redknapp, the 24-year-old has had a very great week with his Saturday’s performance which adds to what he did against Spain in the national team.

He described the English star as manager Maurizio Sarri’s power play who now has the ability to provide a magic play for his side especially when they are losing.

With his return from a hamstring injury after a six months layoff, the former player admits Barkley is getting sharper by each game.

Barkley who joined the Stamford Bridge from Everton is now providing that relief for star player Eden Hazard who seems to have been overburdened with the responsibility to deliver victory for his team.

Willian

Brazilian forward Willian has urged his Chelsea teammates to step up in their responsibility to help lift the team.

He made this claim while reacting to the injury suffered by Belgium international Eden Hazard from the last weekend’s game against United at the Stamford Bridge.

Hazard had played the 90 minutes of the game but woke up on Sunday morning with a back pain which affects his movement and might rule him out in the Blues Europa League clash against BATE Borisov on Thursday as well as a trip to Burnley three days after.

The Belgium man has been the biggest contributor to the Chelsea team which makes it a blow to the Stamford Bridge, especially with his unavailability.

Willian, therefore, urged the players to stand up and provide a cover for the Belgium international while he will be away, adding that Hazard cannot be available to rescue the team all time.

He noted that knowing his ability, teams will target to stop Hazard just like what happened against the Red Devils which makes it important for others to live up to expectations

Chelsea strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have continued to be shy of goals as they have both performed far below expectations but are being saved by the fact that manager Maurizio Sarri keeps faith in them.

Eden Hazard

Chelsea have got reasons to worry following the reported back injury suffered by star player Eden Hazard in the game against United at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday noon.

The Belgium international had completed the game that ended in a 2-2 draw but emerging reports reveal that he woke up on Sunday morning with a severe back pain which affected his movements.

Hazard is believed to have been affected by the no nonsense marking given to him by United’s Nemanja Matic and Ashley Young in the game. It would be recalled that the Red Devils duo were booked in the game.

Belgium international has now become a doubt for the Blues’ Europa League encounter with Bate Borisov on Thursday evening and another trip to Burnley on Sunday.

This is expected to be a major setback to the Maurizio Sarri’s bid to contend for the Premier League title knowing the role of the player in the past games.

The West London side have been warned to secure a replacement for the Belgium man as his absence could cost the team their title bid with strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud not scoring goals.

However, Sarri will hope on the current form of Ross Barkley who had rescued them against Chelsea to continue until Hazard returns to full fitness.
