Emerging reports have hinted that Belgium international Eden Hazard is no longer wanted by the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid ahead of the summer transfer window.
It is no longer news that Eden Hazard has been linked with a move to the Spanish capital after the claim that he wants to unite with his football idol. This is one of the reasons why he has refused to agree on a new deal with the club, according to reports.
With expectations that the Blues will part ways with Eden Hazard at the end of the season, the latest report has claimed that Real Madrid does not have any need for the Belgium international as they have now shifted their attention on securing the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain, PSG star Kylian Mbappe.
The World Cup winner has been impressive and his outfitting for France at the World Stage has convinced the Spanish giants to land him ahead of Eden Hazard in the coming season.
However, this remains good news for Chelsea as they wish to have Eden Hazard at the club owing to the fact that they have been banned from bringing any new player to the club for the next two transfer windows.
Why Sarri missed press conference
West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is reported to have missed the pre-match press conference ahead of their second leg clash against Slavia Prague later on Thursday.
It is claimed that the Italian boss had missed the match conference over dental issues as he needed to undergo a minor medical procedure because he was unable to speak properly. The former Napoli boss was represented by his assistant Zola who spoke on the preparation of the team ahead of the second leg.
The West London outfit already secured a 1-0 win in the first leg away from home which gives them an added advantage for the second game and Zola said the target for the team is to get the work done and proceed to the semi-finals.
He noted that the team are hoping to make some few changes but that is not to say that they will field a weak team because of the need to secure a win in the game.
However, there are suggestions that manager Maurizio Sarri is wanted out of the club by the fans and the owners as he has failed to convince the fans that he can deliver success at the club.
The Europa League is the only opportunity for Chelsea to land silverware this season.
Hazard tipped as best foreign Chelsea player in history
West London outfit Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has opined that Belgium international Eden Hazard is the best foreign import the club has ever produced in their history.
The Blues assist who was a former player and scored 80 goals in 312 appearances between 1996-2003 claims he did not do enough as the Belgium international did for the club.
According to him, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has done much for the Blues team but he cannot match the Belgium international in performance for the team, stressing that Eden Hazard is at the very top in the ranking.
He noted that he is an unbelieving player and is being appreciated by the entire football word as the day goes by.
Zola stated that he would love to work much longer with Eden Hazard because of how much quality he has to contribute to the team.
However, Eden Hazard is being linked away from the club with reports claiming that he would be heading to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid as soon as the season ends.
The Belgium international is keen to work with his football idol Zinedine Zidane and he is reportedly pushing for a move to land the deal.
Chelsea get opportunity to avenge for United against Barcelona
West London outfit Chelsea are reported to have set up a clash against Spanish La Liga Barcelona in this coming summer for a preseason game in Japan on June 23 at the Saitama Stadium in North Tokyo.
This could be an opportunity for the West London outfit to take up revenge for the English Premier League counter-part Man United despite the fact that it would be on a lighter note.
Man United were defeated by the Spanish giants in the Champions League quarterfinals earlier this week and that marks the end of their European journey this season.
However, Chelsea will have a test of the Spanish side later at the end of the season for the MEIJI YASUDA J.LEAGUE WORLD CHALLENGE 2019 which is organized by Yokohama Tyres.
However, the Blues team have got no opportunity to meet with the La Liga outfit in a more competitive game because of their failure to secure qualification to the Champions League this season.
The West Londoners played in the Europa League and they are currently in the quarterfinals with the second leg expected later on Thursday after seeing a 1-0 win in the first leg. A win will ensure they progress to the semi-finals.
This star player leaving Stamford Bridge not minding transfer ban
Emerging reports have claimed that Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain would be leaving the West Leadon outfit Chelsea at the end of the season after failing to impress.
Gonzalo Higuain had an unconvincing performance with the Italian Serie A outfit Juventus which is the reason why he was loaned away and with manager Maurizio Sarri insisting on his signature, it was expected that he would have a boost in his goalscoring form but that did not happen.
The West London outfit had considered handing him a permanent deal but that will no longer happen according to reports as it is claimed that they will cut short his loan deal at the end of the season.
The former Napoli boss had insisted on the signature of Gonzalo Higuain as Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud failed to deliver goals as he assured the club that the Argentina international will sharpen the cutting edge of the club’s attack but that has not happened.
However, the Blues team are currently under a transfer ban as they may not add to their squad in the coming summer window but that will have nothing to do with the exit decision of Gonzalo Higuain as soon as the season ends.
Why I am not to blame for goal drought
France international and Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has hinted that he is not to blame for his lack of goals for the Blues team as criticisms rises.
The former Arsenal forward has been blamed for the lack of cutting edge in the team but he has refused to take the blame as he points the accusing fingers on manager Maurizio Sarri and the kind of offensive formations he adopts.
It would be recalled that the Chelsea boss had brought in Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain to the team with big promise that he would deliver goals but that has not happened.
Olivier Giroud noted that the Blues team could be dangerous with crosses and running from behind but that has not been happening in the team.
According to him, it is easy to blame attackers for not scoring goals but only little few persons try to understand that the formation by the boss needed to be improved upon offensively.
However, Olivier Giroud is reported to be seeking a move away from the club because of his unwillingness to be a second player as he has received a number of interests from other clubs.
Meanwhile, the West London outfit are not ready to lose any player as a result of the transfer ban.
Chelsea now likely destination of star player
West London outfit Chelsea have been identified as the likely destination of Brazilian international and Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho ahead of the coming summer transfer window.
Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move away from the Camp Nou as he has fallen out of favour in the manager Valverde team with France international Ousmane Dembele being selected ahead of him.
The lack of playing time and bench roles handed to Philippe Coutinho is reported to have gotten him frustrated which is the reason why he seeks a move away from the club as there is no hope of a first-team football.
Philippe Coutinho was in action for Barcelona on Tuesday night where he scored a superb goal to help his team with a qualification as well as to prove that he still got a lot to offer.
However, there are still speculations that he would be leaving the club and a number of offers are already available for him but he favours a move to the West London outfit Chelsea.
Chelsea are reported to be keen on the signature of Philippe Coutinho so he can come in as a replacement for Wales international Eden Hazard who is reportedly leaving the club at the end of the season.
Incredible revelation about Callum Hudson-Odoi will get Blues fans talking
West London outfit Chelsea have now got England international Callum Hudson-Odoi to boast of after seeing the young lad impress in the past few games.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was initially handed only bench roles but the situation has changed at the club as manager Maurizio Sarri as had a change of mind and has handed the 18-year-old starts in the last three games.
The star player had wanted to leave the Stamford Bridge after he was unable to secure a regular playing time but after watching him with the England senior national team, it is claimed that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has instructed the Italian boss to hand him more playing time.
However, Chelsea third choice goalkeeper Rob Green has revealed that Callum Hudson-Odoi has been on a different level since he started seeing regular playing time, revealing that he has been getting better in training.
He noted that there is every conviction that Callum Hudson-Odoi will make a great player at Chelsea if he is not allowed to move because of the bog prospect.
Meanwhile, Callum Hudson-Odoi is being linked away with a move to the German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich with the club submitting a number of offers for his signature.
Revealed, Sarri’s stand on exit speculations
It has been revealed by football journalist Duncan Castles that West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri would be happy to be sacked by the Blues boss after one year in charge.
The Italian boss joined the Stamford Bridge from Serie A outfit Napoli just a year ago and life has not been good for him owing to the bad result and relationship with the fans.
Maurizio Sarri started on a high note with a number of wins and that kept them in the frame for the English Premier League title pursuit but the situation changed along the line and he is now being wanted out of the club.
The fans had severally chanted “Sarri out” at the stadium as they are now fed up with his Sarri-ball system which has not been producing results on the scoreboard as he has been adamant on having it changed.
Duncan Castles has therefore revealed that the Italian boss might be happy with life at Chelsea but he is tired of the criticisms from the Blues fans and would not have an issue with being sacked at the end of the season.
However, suggestions are that the Italian manager would be sacked and reports claim that he could be heading to Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma.
Star target refers Stamford Bridge move to Serie A
It has been claimed that French Ligue 1 outfit Lille star Nicolas Pepe prefers a move to the English Premier League outfit Chelsea than a move to the Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan.
It is reported that Inter Milan have been on the case of the star player as they hope to land him in the coming summer transfer window but he has been discouraged by the fact that he might not secure satisfaction from the wage structure of the team while Inter Milan have not been guaranteed a Champions League spot.
Should a move to Chelsea fail to work through, it is suggested that Nicolas Pepe will turn his attention to German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich as they are reported to be keen on his signature as well.
Nicolas Pepe has been in the best form of his life and that is why he has been able to get the attention on him from top clubs, including the French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain.
However, Nicolas Pepe is tipped as a replacement for Belgium international Eden Hazard who is set to leave the Stamford Bridge at the end of the season with a move to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid on the card.
Gary Cahill’s future could have been decided
There are suggestions that the future of Chelsea star Gary Cahill has already been decided and he might be leaving the club at the end of the season.
Gary Cahill is no doubt one of the fans favourites as he has been impressing since he joined the club some years back as a regular player.
There is no doubt that he is no longer needed at the Stamford Bridge as he is now out of favour in the manager Jurgen Klopp’s squad which is enough reason to show him the way out.
Gary Cahill was linked with a move away from the West London outfit in the last January winter transfer window but a move was blocked as he hoped to land regular playing time under the Italian boss but that did not happen.
However, West Ham United are the latest to be linked with Gary Cahill as they are reportedly keen to land him in the coming summer window.
Suggestions are that the West London outfit will be willing to cash in on the star defender but that will only happen with the right fee.
Meanwhile, a replacement for Gary Cahill will only be possible if the transfer ban on the Blues team is lifted.
