Chelsea are on the verge of breaking their record this summer as they are reportedly set to offer Brazilian winger Willian with a two-year contract deal.
The Blues usually give a 12-month contract to players who are in their 30s but they going to do the unusual with the Brazilian star, that’s according to the Sun.
Willian, 30, rejected offers from Barcelona and Manchester United last month to remain at Stamford Bridge.
The player was heavily linked with the Blaugrana but the player failed to accept the big-money offer for his signature as he claimed he wants to play under Maurizio Sarri this season.
Just as Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde, Manchester United manager José Mourinho – who brought the winger to Chelsea from in 2013-wants to reunite with him at Old Trafford but reports suggested the Brazilian turned down the chance to play under the Portuguese manager at the Theater of Dreams.
As a way to reward his loyalty and dedication to the club, Chelsea have reportedly prepared a two-year contract for Willian. The deal is believed to include increased weekly wages and other benefits.
Willian sparingly featured for the Blues throughout last season due to his cold relationship with Antonio Conte, who didn’t rate the Brazilian.
Willian has seen himself returned back to the starting lineup since Sarri took charge of the team.
He was lively against Huddersfield, he would be expected to maintain his blistering display when the Gunners came visiting tomorrow.
This big name linked with a move for Sarri’s job
Italian manager Maurizio Sarri is still unsafe as the West London outfit Chelsea boss with unending reports linking his job to others.
The former Napoli boss has not been on the good books of the Blues’ fans ever since he joined in the last summer transfer window especially as he failed to deliver a title yet despite sneaking into the top-four to secure qualification to the Champions League.
His relationship with the fans remains a major concern for the Blues owner Roman Abramovich who is reportedly considering to sack him after the Europa League clash against Arsenal later on Thursday.
However, out-going Italian manager Massimiliano Allegri is being linked with the job as he has already made it clear that he would move into management immediately with the next club.
Massimiliano Allegri made his decision to leave the Old Lady after his elimination from the Champions League by Ajax earlier on.
There is no doubt about his ability if Maurizio Sarri would be sacked as he helped the Italian outfit with five Serie A titles in addition to leading them to the finals of the Champions League for two years.
With Chelsea not being able to sign new players, it is yet to be seen if the Juventus boss will find it any easy making such a decision.
Sealed Deal!!! New face spotted at Chelsea’s training ground
The West London outfit Chelsea are already in the mood for Europa League finals against North London side Arsenal later on Thursday with training already heating up.
One thing that has caught attention from pictures made available from the training ground is the sight of American footballer Christian Pulisic which is a hope for the Blues team.
Christian Pulisic is only a new face at the Stanford Bridge but he had signed for the Blues in January and was allowed to spend the remainder of 2018/19 on loan at Borussia Dortmund, from where he was bought.
From every indication, the Blues team will not be allowed to bring in new players in the summer transfer window owing to the hammer on them by the world football governing body FIFA.
Chelsea have been accused of breaching transfer regulations with foreign minor deals and they are only left with the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
However, Christian Pulisic is expected to give a feel of Eden Hazard at the club as manager Maurizio Sarri is not sure the Belgium international can be replaced.
Howbeit, Christian Pulisic might be the only new face at the North London outfit if the transfer ban is not upturned.
Confirmed!!!! Chelsea star no longer leaving
It is now confirmed that the West London outfit Chelsea will not part ways with France international Olivier Giroud at the end of the season because he has already signed a contract extension with the Blues team.
This will lay to rest speculations surrounding the future of the former Arsenal forward at the club especially after he complained of not having enough playing time in the English Premier League, a report that has been dismissed by manager Maurizio Sarri.
However, reports claim that the World Cup winner has agreed on a deal after he was persuaded by the Blues team to wait as they will not be able to replace him as a result of the transfer ban.
The performance of the France international has not been convincing and it was expected that a new striker be brought in if not for the ban on the club.
Olivier Giroud total record for the club is just 17 goals in 62 appearances, with most of the goals coming as a substitute player but his Europa League record as a starter in this season has been better, having scored 10 goals in 13 and 3 assists.
Manager Maurizio Sarri will now be left with no choice than to bank on the former Arsenal man and the Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain to lead his attack on the coming season.
What is Chelsea’s hope? Transfer ban still standing
As it stands, the West London outfit Chelsea will still be unable to participate in the summer transfer window, owing to the transfer ban on the club.
The West London outfit are accused of breaching rules relating to the transfers of foreign minors, going by Article 19 of the Regulations on the Status and
Transfer of Players.
An attempt to have the ban appealed to world football’s governing body FIFA failed which makes the Court for Arbitration for Sports, CAS the next and only option available.
The hearing at CAS is yet to go down which keeps the Blues team in a very difficult situation to either indicate interest in a player or bargain for deals.
This, therefore, raises concerns of hope for the Blues team as it is not sure if they would be able to compete for titles in the coming season as well as handle the Champions League challenge.
What is more disturbing is that the Court of Arbitration for Sport has not received an appeal from Chelsea FC, according to claims by football.london.
With Eden Hazard set to leave the club, it would be unfortunate to learn that the West London outfit will not be able to replace him until after two windows.
Chelsea drop Luka Jovic interest for Ajax star
The English Premier League outfit Chelsea are set to drop their interest in German Bundesliga Luka Jovic as the summer transfer window approaches.
Reports claim that Luka Jovic has already agreed on a move to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid and could be set to leave the club as soon the summer window is opened.
Luka Jovic was able to give a good account of himself in the Europa League when the Frankfurt side faced Chelsea in the semi-finals and that was able to capture the attention of the Spanish side.
With Chelsea set to lose out on the Star Player, they are reportedly paying attention to Ajax star winger David Neres as an option for the next season.
However, it is yet to be seen if the West London outfit will be able to secure any player in this summer transfer window as a result of the transfer ban which has not been lifted.
The Blues seem positive that the transfer ban will be lifted as they have already approached the Court of Arbitration for Sport to tender their appeal.
Meanwhile, Chelsea will have to pay the sum of £40 million to land the Ajax star who has impressed for the Dutch side this season and has been an important part of their success.
Done Deal!!! Chelsea have found a replacement for Cesar Azpilicueta
The West London outfit Chelsea seem to have found a replacement for their star player Cesar Azpilicueta in Reece James ahead of the coming season
The West London outfit have got a need for reinforcement in the right full back which seems to be a work done already with Reece James as you will be asked to return to the club.
Reece James is currently impressing in his loan spell with Wigan and has already been seen by the West London outfit to be ready for a first-team football at the Stamford Bridge.
Reece James is already attracting a number of interest from both English Premier League clubs and championship sides which would make it difficult for the West London outfit to be able to retain him at the club.
However, Reece James will come into the Stamford Bridge as a new signing in the next season knowing that Chelsea will not be allowed to register any player in the summer transfer window as a result of the transfer ban that has been handed to them.
Meanwhile, manager Maurizio Sarri has already hinted that a number of players would be asked to return to the club for the coming season
PSG not giving up on N’Golo Kante
The emerging report hints that French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain are back in full hunt for France international and Chelsea powerhouse N’Golo Kante in the summer transfer window.
The World Cup winner has been a major strength of the West London outfit Chelsea but the development at the Stamford Bridge which saw him lose his natural role to Jorginho sparked speculations that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season.
the formal Leicester City man has therefore attracted a number of big interest from the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
However, PSG seem to be more in the interest of the star player and are set to return with a bid that might be difficult for the Blues to reject.
Although, it is expected that the West London outfit will reject any offer for the star player as they will not be able to replace him as a result of the transfer ban on the club.
It is therefore yet to be seen if Chelsea at the end of the season will reject the offers from his country home as PSG seek to fulfill their Champions League dreams.
Chelsea to lose Willy Caballero this summer
The West London outfit Chelsea could part ways with their star goalkeeper Willy Caballero in the coming summer transfer window as he is already receiving interest from a number of clubs.
London outfit West Ham United have emerged as strong suitors for the Star goalkeeper and they are likely to have their way this time around owing to the fact that he has not been securing enough playing time at the club.
The coming of Brazilian International Kepa Arrizabalaga has ensured that willy caballero goes down the pecking order without being considered for selections in the English Premier League games.
West Ham United are known to be seeking a backup for Lukaz Fabianski, which is the reason why willy Caballero is being considered.
It is therefore yet to be seen if willy caballero will accept to leave the West London outfit, knowing that he will not secure regular playing time at West United.
It is also unclear if the Blues team will want to release the star stopper because of the cover needed for Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Meanwhile, Willy Caballero will be out of contract at Stamford Bridge in this summer transfer window and it is still unclear if he will be handed a new deal by manager Maurizio Sarri.
The only reason why 25-Goal Nigeria-eligible striker will remain at Chelsea revealed
The West London outfit Chelsea are considering to have star striker Tammy Abraham remain at the Stamford Bridge in the coming season.
Tammy Abraham, who is eligible to play for Nigeria enjoyed a fine form in the just concluded season when he starred for championship side, Aston Villa.
Tammy Abraham was one of the best attackers in the championship last season as he delivered 25 goals to hand the hope of qualification to the English Premier League.
However, Tammy Abraham is only enjoying a loan spell at Aston Villa and there seem to be a call for him to return back to his parent Club.
The West London outfit are hit already with a transfer ban which may stop them from involving in the next to transfer windows. They, therefore, seek the return of some of their players as already hinted by manager Maurizio Sarri before the end of the just concluded season.
However, it is reported that Tammy Abraham would be asked to return if the club failed to win their appeal against the ban.
His performance at the championship has already given him the boost and attracted faith in him to deliver when he finally returns back to the Stamford Bridge.
Manager confirms Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal £70m target is leaving
The West London outfit Chelsea have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of French Ligue 1 outfit Lille star Nicolas Pepe.
This is after it was confirmed by his manager Christophe Galtier that Nicolas Pepe will be leaving the club now that the season has ended.
The blues team has been handed a transfer ban but they seek an upturn as they approach the Court of Arbitration to appeal the judgment given by the world football governing body.
Therefore, Christophe Galtier has hinted that Nicolas Pepe will be available in this summer transfer window after hinting that a number of Interest clubs are already bidding for his signature.
A number of top European clubs including, Man United, Arsenal and Spanish La Liga club Barcelona are also in the chase for Nicolas Pepe.
It has been suggested that the Star Player will come in to replace Belgium international Eden Hazard who is set to leave the club to join Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid after indicating interest to play under his football Idol and manager Zinedine Zidane.
Howbeit, West London outfit will wait for the decision of CAS to be able to know their next step for new additions in the summer transfer window.
