Chelsea €70,000-a-week Target Opens up On Transfer Speculation; Abramovich Set To Trigger His Release Clause

Published

Kostas Manolas

Chelsea Target Kostas Manolas has opened up to reporters about his desire to switch to one of the best clubs in Europe this summer.

The Roma defender has been a source of speculation since this start of the summer transfer window and he is tipped to be heading out of Serie A this season due to numerous offers coming in for his signature.

The Greek international still has a contract with Roma and it includes a £30m release clause.

Reports from Italy last month claimed that Chelsea are willing and ready to trigger the player’s release clause this summer, though they are yet to make any official dealings with the Serie A side for the 27-year-old player.

Manolas helped Roma to a semi-final finish in last season’s Champions League competition but he might be heading to another club where he would be guaranteed of winning trophies rather than finishing in the third position.

The Blues finished in the 5th position last season which automatically makes them ineligible to participate in next season’s Champions League competition.

Their inability to qualify for the European competition might dent their hope of luring the defender to the Stamford Bridge next season.

While reacting to the rumours linking him to the Blues and Bayern Munich, Manolas told reporters that it is natural to see big clubs vying for players who are performing perfectly and brilliantly.

He revealed his desire to play for a big club in the 2018-19 season, with Chelsea and Bayern Munich coming to the picture.

There has been relative silence over the future of English Premier League outfit Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata in the last few days as the January transfer window runs half way.

The former Real Madrid star has been reported to be on his way away from the club over his lack of impressive performance which has bit gone unnoticed by manager Maurizio Sarri.

It was earlier reported that he would be involved in a swap deal with Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain with the Argentina international striker reported to be coming in the opposite direction but that is yet to happen.

However, another interest for the former Real Madrid star forward surfaced from Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla with claims that talks have been finalized with his agent after he was alleged to have stormed London to hold talks with the West London side.

Despite all of these, the Spanish international striker still remains a Chelsea player with the January winter transfer window already counting down with lots of uncertainty.

Meanwhile, suggestions are that suitors are yet to step up with an offer for him s the West London side are keen to have him sold in this winter transfer window.

Eden Hazard

English Premier League outfit Chelsea have decided to splash a £100 million asking price for Belgium international Eden Hazard ahead of his potential move away from the club.

After refusing to commit his future at the Stamford Bridge by signing a contract extension, the West London side are now left with no choice than to let him leave at the end of the season.

Several clubs have all come lining up for the Chelsea gaffer but he seems to be heading to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid after he confessed love and admiration for the Los Blancos in public.

Madrid have also been keen on signing the star player as they wish to have him as a replacement for world best player Cristiano Ronaldo who left the club at the end of last season to join Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

However, the West London side are keen to benefit from the situation by cashing in big on the star player in order splashing a big price tag on him.

Jamie Vardy

Should English Premier League outfit Chelsea fail in their bid to secure other striker targets, they are willing to consider former league champions Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy so as to have new additions before the winter transfer window comes to an end.

The West London side are keen to land an attacker this winter window as manager Maurizio Sarri has lost faith in Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud because of the lack of cutting edge in the team.

Several strikers have been linked with the club with Argentina international and Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain reported to be favourite to join the club as manager Maurizio Sarri remains his biggest fan.

However, with the reluctance of the Italian Serie A side to have Higuain released, the West London side could be forced to look other direction and have identified the former Premier League champion as a big alternative.

Jamie Vardy has been an unchanged figure since his resurgence that helped the Leicester city side win the Champions League in 2016 as he has continued to deliver goals for the Foxes.

So far this season, the England international has scored seven goals for his side and is expected to be secured with a cheap fee.

Chelsea! Bournemouth place huge price tag on Wilson’s signature

Published

Callum Wilson

Chelsea are reportedly searching for a new goalscorer and they have identified two players — AC Milan’s Gonzalo Higuain and Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson.

Transfer media outlets claimed the Blues are on the verge of completing their move for the Argentinian striker after holding talks with his parent club Juventus for his services.

The Scuddeto Champions are ready to end their relationship with the player as there are many proven strikers to help them in their mission to win UEFA Champions League trophy this season.
Ronaldo, Dybala, Costa, Mandzukic are all doing well and they are capable of leading the Bianconeri to their first European glory after many years.

As for Callum Wilson, the West London outfits might need to break their transfer record for his signature.

According to Daily Star in the early hours of today, the Cherries are reluctant to let go of the Englishman in the January transfer market, hence, they’ve placed a huge price tag on his signature.

The British publication reveals that the struggling club are hoping to receive £75m from the Blues before considering whether to release him or not.

Irrespective of his qualities and his fine form this season, the 26-year-old didn’t look like a player who should carry such mammoth market value and the Blues might turn their attention to someone else’s signature.

The same report further suggests that Sarri and his employers won’t go beyond £50m offer for his signature.

Should the Cherries insist they want £75m for his signature, the Blues will ultimately end their desire to lure Wilson to Stamford Bridge this month.

Young goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga became the Blues most expensive player when he completed his £71m switch to Stamford Bridge from Athletic Bilbao in the summer.
