Chelsea are in a great battle to keep N’golo Kante ahead of next season. The former Leicester City midfielder is one of the best central midfielders in the world and that has endeared him to many European clubs, who are keeping close tabs on his performance at the ongoing Mundial.
The Frenchman was inspirational during Leicester’s amazing run to Premier League glory in the 2015-16 season, his powerful tackles and doggedness at the centre of the pitch was one of the factors that helped the Foxes achieved the ‘unthinkable’
He joined Chelsea in 2016-17 season and also helped Antonio Conte to his first trophy in the English League. Just as he was with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, Kante made sure opponents rarely get past him with the ball.
Though he wasn’t that impressive in the last season due to Chelsea’s poor collective displays, he is being tracked by Paris St-German new manager Thomas Tuchel, who is ready to spend big on his signature.
Thomas Tuchel replaced Unai Emery, who joined Arsenal last month, and he is keen on upgrading his team ahead of next season.
In his unveiling ceremony, Tuchel was given a task to win next season’s Champions League glory by the Ligue 1 club and he has identified some quality players he believes would help him achieve the task.
According to the Mirror, PSG are willing to table £90m for the Frenchman’s services before the end of the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Everton ready to land this Chelsea star
Merseyside outfit Everton are reportedly ready to secure the signature of Chelsea star Tammy Abraham in the coming summer transfer window.
Tammy Abraham has been on loan with Championship side Aston Villa and he has been impressing enough with goals to have caught the attention of a number of topflight clubs in England.
So far this season, Tammy Abraham has scored 25 goals in 37 Championship games which were helpful for his team to secure a playoff as they have won their last 10 games which is obviously a club record.
Tammy Abraham has been a Blues player since 2016 but has not been favored for a first-team selection owing to his age and other factors but he has been tipped for a topflight football owing to his feats at the Champions League and he has been tipped to land a move elsewhere if his parent club cannot guarantee him of a first-team football.
Everton are therefore ready to land Tammy Abraham this summer window as there are possibilities that he would not remain with Aston Villa after this season.
Everton have been in great form this season, having defeated a number of top teams in the league and that could be a motivating factor for Tammy Abraham to fancy the move.
This star player now prefers Chelsea to Liverpool
It is claimed that Italian Serie A outfit Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne would rather join the West London outfit Chelsea than head to the Merseyside club Liverpool in the coming summer transfer window.
Lorenzo Insigne has been linked with moves to the English Premier Egaue with a number of top clubs in Europe also seeking for his signature but there are indications that Liverpool and Chelsea remain favorites in the deal.
It is suggested that Napoli will have a squad overhaul in the coming summer transfer window after they slipped away from the Europa League ageist Arsenal and Carlo Ancelotti will not seek to work with the stoker again with both having a sour relationship at the moment.
However, Lorenzo Insigne will be available for £60 million with suggestions that the West London outfit will be able to run the deal but they will have to wait until their transfer ban is decided y the Court of Arbitration for Sport, CAS.
The Blues team have suffered lack of cutting edge in their attack and there are fears that France international Olivier Giroud could still push for a move away despite the words of manager Maurizio Sarri that he would still remain at the club in the coming season.
Why Mourinho will never return to Chelsea, United
Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho has played down the possibility of returning to his former clubs Chelsea and Man United in the future as he plans to return to management ahead of the coming summer transfer window.
Jose Mourinho was sacked by Man United management in December last year after series of poor results and was replaced by a former player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has now been handed a permanent role.
The Portuguese boss has since been without a job but he was reported to have rejected an offer after learning that the club does not have the kind of ambition he seeks for.
Jose Mourinho has been cited in England but has claimed he is not around to manage any Premier League side because it is not an option for him because some players do not like him and will go ahead to call him a bastard.
This is the main reason why he will not seek to work with any of the clubs because they will demand wins but will not want hint o do it in his way but will rather demand other things.
However, he stressed that he has got his record to speak for him, noting that he won the Europa League and the Carabao Cup United.
Chelsea star gets transfer advice on Stamford Bridge return
West London outfit Chelsea star Kurt Zouma has been asked not to return to his parent club but remain at the Merseyside outfit Everton where he is currently enjoying his loan deal.
Kurt Zouma has been impressive for Everton this season and that is why speculations of his return to the Stamford Bridge is being rumored in England.
This is happening after the Blues team were handed a transfer ban which will stop them from registering new players for the next two transfer windows. The club, therefore, ponders on returning some of their on-loan players who are doing well at their various spells.
Gylfi Sigurdsson and Phil Jagielka have both urged Kurt Zouma to continue his development at Goodison Park as he would be guaranteed a regular playing time rather than move to the West London outfit where a starting role is not sure.
Gylfi Sigurdsson noted that he expects Everton to mount pressure on the star player to remain by convincing him on how important he is to the team.
However, manager Maurizio Sarri is yet to make any claim on Kurt Zouma but there are suggestions that the Blues team will not waste any moment to bring him back if any need arises.
Why Chelsea should forget top four
West London ou7tfit Chelsea hero Pat Nevin has assessed his former side and he feels they should forget about finishing in the top-four this season.
The Blues are currently battling to impress under manage Unai Emery but the start of his career at the club was good as he recorded a number of wins before things turned around.
Chelsea are currently in the semi-finals of the Europa League which is their only hope of a title this season but they are still struggling with a Tottenham, Man United and Arsenal over who will represent the English Premier League in the Champions League next season.
The Blues lost out of the competition last season and they are keen to return back but that has seemed difficult as they lost another opportunity to drive in when they played a 2-2 draw against Burnley.
However, the Blues legend claims that he does not believe his former side will fulfill their dream of finishing in the top-four this season, arguing that they lack quality players to make that happen.
Pat Nevin has therefore stated that it would be a difficult next season for the Chelsea team if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season as it is their only hope of landing quality players.
Why Real Madrid are making a major mistake with Hazard
It has been suggested by former player Craig Burley that Belgium international Eden Hazard is not the player he has been rated to be and the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid might not find him worthy of the investment on him.
Craig Burley accused manager Maurizio Sarri of making Eden Hazard a major part of his plan and that has failed especially when he does not deliver.
According to him, Eden Hazard is not Lionel Messi and cannot be able to deliver as expected of him, stressing that he has been overhyped.
Craig Burley lamented that the Blues boss has no other plan B when Eden Hazard is not available to deliver good form and goals and that is the reason why he is suffering a setback in the bid to land a top-four finish.
However, the Belgium international will be joining the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid if reports are to be believed and they have been sounded the same warming on how not to rely on the star player alone.
Meanwhile, manager Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that Eden Hazard cannot replace Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo at the club but admitted that he is a great player who is needed.
Why Chelsea have been cheated with £400,000 weekly wage offer to Hazard
Emerging reports claim that Belgium international Eden Hazard has been offered a £400,000-weekly wage deal in an anticipated move to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid at the end of the season.
The reports claim that talks are already underway and close to conclusion between two sides with Chelsea demanding for a £100 million fee to have the player leave this summer transfer window.
Eden Hazard has also sought to leave the West London outfit after refusing to sign a new deal extension as well as declaring his wish to work under his football idol Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.
Analysts are of the opinion that the Blues team have been cheated in the deal for Eden Hazard as they would have earned more if they had acted fast.
It is suggested that the Red Devils would have been made to pay £250 million to land Eden Hazard rather than the £1000 which is also already being bargained because of the quality he has got but that will no longer happen as he has got just a year left to the end of his contract.
Should the Blues team had agreed to have Eden Hazard leave last summer window, he would have been valued more than £100 million.
Chelsea star in summer move meeting
It is reported that Chelsea star Emerson Palmieri could be on his way from the West London outfit as he has already held a meeting with his No. 1 suitors and Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan.
It was earlier reported that the Serie A outfit are keen to land the star player and will make an attempt for him but latest development reveals that the Blues team have already concluded to have him leave the club at the end of the season for £25 million.
The report claims that there is yet to be an agreement on the fee but the Blues team are yet to change their stand on the price while the San Siro side are refusing to take any chance to walk away.
However, Emerson Palmieri was unable to make is name and withstand the competition in the Blues team after a £20 million move from another Italian Serie A side AS Roma in the January window of 2018.
With just 24 appearances for the Blues team this season, the Brazilian international star is not satisfied and will be ready for the move instead of waiting until the end of his deal with the club in 2022.
Meanwhile, Emerson Palmieri will not force a move away from the Stamford Bridge.
Why Sarri was called shit by Burnley backroom team
It has been revealed that West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was called “shit” by a member of the Burnley backroom team when the two sides clashed in the English Premier League tie on Monday night.
Both teams played a 2-2 draw and it was no doubt a disappointment to the Blues boss who had expected to further establish himself into the race for a top-four finish.
However, Chelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola has hinted that the club could go ahead to report the incident to the FA for necessary actions to be taken on the matter.
It would be recalled that the Blues boss was sent off after leaving his technical zone as he attempted to talk to his players at the touchline.
Zola hinted that the Italian boss has been offended and he was unhappy as he defended his boss for not turning up for the match conference after the game.
The game had ended in a thick atmosphere with players of both teams and officials looking very angry as they left the pitch.
A win for the Blues would have helped them push for a top-four finish especially after Man United, Arsenal and Tottenham lost their games.
Europa League: Why Frankfurt have got an advantage over Chelsea
There are suggestions that German Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt have been handed a major advantage ahead of their Europa League semi-final game against West London outfit Chelsea by next month.
This is after it is claimed that the Bundesliga have shifted a game from the penultimate round of fixtures to help Eintracht Frankfurt have a better rest and prepare well against the Blues team.
The German Bundesliga outfit are currently sitting fourth in the Bundesliga table and have got three games left to end the season which means they are likely to return to the Champions League if they retain the spot but there is a bid to have them reach the finals to stand the chance of playing in the finals.
However, it is expected to serve as a major boost to the Bundesliga side and to keep them in a better position to play in the finals of the competition later in May.
Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has advocated for this kind of treatment from the English Premier League but that has not happened yet, knowing that the opportunity was handed to Ajax and it helped them with their Champions League wins against Real Madrid and Juventus respectively.
