Eden Hazard

Suggestions are that Belgium international Eden Hazard will be heading to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid as he is yet to put pen to paper for a contract extension with the West London outfit Chelsea.

Eden Hazard is reported to have made it clear that Real Madrid is his dream club and that has been encouraged by the fact that his idol Zinedine Zidane has been appointed again as the Los Blancos new manager.

However, it is expected that the Spanish giants step forward with a bid for Eden Hazard, with The Sun reporting that they are [preparing a £70 million offer to land the Belgium international whose contract at the Stamford Bridge ends in 2020.

However, it has been revealed that the West London outfit Chelsea are aware of the intending offer from the La Liga outfit and have already decided to reject all of the offers as they also wish to keep him at the Stamford Bridge.

The West London outfit have been handed a ban from two transfer windows which means they will have to keep hold of the star player, knowing his importance in the team.

Meanwhile, the decision would be left for Eden Hazard to make at the end of the day between staying and leaving the Stamford Bridge.

English Premier League outfit Chelsea will now breath fresh air as they have been told that their appeal for the transfer ban would be heard by the world football governing body on April 11.

This means that the West London outfit have got a chance to engage in this coming summer transfer window should they succeed in the appeal.

It would be recalled that the West London outfit were handed ban, not to engage in the next two transfer window after they were found guilty of international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.

As soon as the judgment was passed, the Blues’ management in their reaction vowed to appeal the ban and this could be the time for them to be heard by FIFA.

This brings hope that the ban could be listed fully or it could be reduced, depending on their argument and the evidence they have to tender.

It has therefore been hinted that the West London outfit will not give up even if they lose in the appeal as they will proceed to the Court of Arbitration for Sports to make their case.

However, it is suggested that the transfer ban will in many ways determine the fate of the club in next season’s competitions.

France international N’Golo Kante has reacted to claims that he would be leaving the West London outfit Chelsea to join Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.

It is claimed that the former Leicester City star is unhappy at the Stamford Bridge under Maurizio Sarri because of the decision to shift him to a more advanced role in the midfield, different from his natural role.

When asked if he would jump at any offer from the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid, he refused to be linked with the speculations as he made it clear that he is a Chelsea player and will not want to be drawn into talks with other clubs.

He noted that he has targets at the West London outfit and will want to have it accomplished even before his move.

N’Golo Kante has made it clear that he has no issue with where he plays or not as he is happy and willing to play anywhere the manager wants him to be.

However, the Chelsea team have not been able to meet with their target and they are in the risk of missing out of the Champions League for the second year because of their inability to remain in the top-four.

Andreas Christensen

Chelsea star Andreas Christensen who is frustrated at his lack of playing time at the Stamford Bridge has dropped a big hint on the transfer plans of the players at the club and his future as well.

Left to Andreas Christensen, he would have pushed for a move away from the club as he has not been favoured with playing time in the manager Maurizio Sarri team.

But the coming transfer window will be a no-go area for the West London outfit as they have been banned from the next two transfer window by the world football governing body FIFA because of an offence of involving deals of players under 18.

However, Andreas Christensen has revealed that the players have been told by the club that no one would be leaving, including Belgium international Eden Hazard because they will not be able to appeal the ruling against them.

This, therefore, means that Eden Hazard might not secure his dream move away from the Stamford Bridge at the end of the season to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.

However, it is unclear what the Belgium international would do as he could force his way out of the club against the wish of the management.

Former Chelsea player and legend Florent Malouda has revealed why he was forced to leave the Stamford Bridge against his wish at the time he did so.

The Chelsea legend spent six seasons with the West London outfit where he won a Premier League title and three FA Cups, to add to the UEFA Champions League he won with the Blues team.

All of the feats ended in the other way round as Florent Malouda was unhappy at the club in his last season because he was asked to take an £80,000 pay cut during the summer which he refused.

The result for him was to be left out of the Blues squad from all of the competitions they competed in before he left to Turkey to join Trabzonspor the next summer.

Now that it is history, Florent Malouda, who spoke on the Legend of Legends, said his last days at the West London outfit was not funny because there was a serious disagreement with the club.

He, therefore, exposed that there were threats and conspiracy against him, just like it was done with Nikolas Anelka and Alex after they won the Champions League.

Florent Malouda concluded by stating that he was a victim because he was not scared of how he would have been treated for speaking out his mind.

Jose Mourinho

Former Chelsea star and Nigerian international John Obi Mikel has lamented how his career fell short of expectation under the former boss Jose Mourinho in the early days of his career at the Stamford Bridge.

John Obi Mikel recalled how he first got sent off in his first game for the Blues because of the speed of the game which took him a while to understand.

It would be recalled that the Super Eagles captain joined the West London outfit in 2006 from Lyn Oslo at the age of 19 after Man United failed to secure his signature because of his impressive performance during the 2005 U-20 World Cup in the Netherlands where he was the tournament’s second best player.

At that time, John Obi Mikel had gotten offers from a number of top European clubs before he opted for the West London outfit and he almost regretted the decision during his early days because of the demands of the manager and the pace of the league.

He recalled how he was naughty and most at times got late to training as well as wear the wrong dress code but he was later put through by the Portuguese manager who will not take any excuse for wrongdoings.

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Premier League giants Manchester United have joined the race to sign highly-rated Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

This is according to reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom.

The Daily Mail revealed that Manchester United are ready to fight other interested clubs for the young England international winger.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has previously been linked with clubs like Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

German champions Bayern Munich tried to sign him during the winter transfer window but Chelsea stood firm in the face of several bids from the Bavarian giants.

Chelsea rejected at least five bids from Bayern Munich for Callum Hudson-Odoi in January.

The young English winger submitted a transfer request amidst the interest from Bayern Munich but it was rejected by senior officials at the club.

Chelsea want to keep the 18-year-old at Stamford Bridge though Bayern Munich have already revealed their desire to pursue their interest in him when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

Hudson-Odoi has just over a year on his current deal at Chelsea.

He made his debut for the Three Lions of England two days ago during the 5-0 win over Czech Republic at the Wembley Stadium.

Callum Hudson-Odoi came on as a second-half substitute for hat-trick hero Raheem Sterling.

Jorginho

Chelsea fans will now have something to refer to when it comes to the gist about Jorginho as he struggled for his Italy national team in their 2-0 win against Finland.

The former Napoli star has been in the black book of the Chelsea supporters over what is perceived as poor performance, especially in the games that were lost in the season.

A number of pundits and former players have asked Maurizio Sarri to sack the Italian from the starting XI or make room for another role for him but he has been reluctant as the former Napoli boss stated that Jorginho is best for the deep role in the team.

Because of the presence of Jorginho, Maurizio Sarri pushed away France powerhouse N’Golo Kante from his natural role and have him play a more advanced role. This has not gone well with the club supporters and that has been one of the issues with the manager.

However, Jorginho could not prove Chelsea fans wrong at the national side as he struggled throughout his stay on the pitch.

Suggestions are that the former Napoli player would be the scapegoat in the Chelsea team and might be shown the way out when it is time to make some squad adjustments.
