The manager of Chelsea, Jose Mourinho, has rubbished off the reports that Eden Hazard might be making his way to Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the ongoing season.
Mourinho has also made it clear that he doesn’t have plans to put any of his players on sale.
Hazard had been brought to Stamford Bridge about one and half years ago. Chelsea had paid a transfer fee speculated to be around 40 million Pounds to Lille for securing his services and Mourinho reckons that the winger is a far better player now than what he was back then. So, his value at the moment would probably be out of the reach of most of the clubs.
Oscar, the Chelsea playmaker, has stated that he almost agreed a contract with Spanish giants Real Madrid. The talented Brazilian footballer signed for Chelsea before the beginning of the past season in a huge money contract and has since that time he has become a fans’ favorite at the London club.
He, however, stated that the move almost did not happen following a preliminary dialogues with the Spanish giants.
According to reports, while speaking to a leading Brazilian magazine, h e told that a month before signing for the London club, he was close to doing so with Real Madrid. But Mourinho told him that he wanted him in the team. They came to watch him in some matches but they had the playmaker spot well covered and he then signed for Chelsea.
This morning in the Mirror, Chelsea are being linked to a massive £40m bid for Manchester City striker and Captain, Carlos Tevez!. The article says:
"Chelsea are preparing a £40million bid for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez. The London club have instructed super-agent Pini Zahavi to broker a deal that would see Tevez partner Fernando Torres in Chelsea’s attack next season.
City’s Abu Dhabi-based owners are aware that Zahavi has been tasked with landing the 27-year-old Argentine for Stamford Bridge benefactor Roman Abramovich. But City are unlikely to contemplate selling their captain and top goalscorer to another Premier League club - even if they meet the asking price.
An immovable object met an unstoppable force on Saturday at Brittania Stadium.
Stoke City are unbeaten at home this season. Chelsea had beaten Stoke 5 out of 5 times in the Premier League, a perfect record. Something had to give.
The loser? Chelsea’s chances of retaining their Premiership title. They vaporized in a 1-1 draw. Manchester United now sit 11 points clear with just eight contests remaining after coming back from 2-0 at West Ham.
With one eye firmly on Wednesday’s massive Champions League match against Manchester United, Carlo Ancelotti might have let a victory slip away. He’s probably not too disappointed. His clear priority was protecting his star players.
On the bench were Fernando Torres and Branislav Ivanovic. Ramires was yanked in the second half despite being Chelsea’s most dangerous player, as was Anelka. Ancelotti was trying to keep key players fresh for Wednesday after a busy week of international play.
It’s one of the questions we’ve been asking since Studge went out on loan and started scoring goals constantly – what to do with him when the loan spell is over?
Sturridge has scored six goals in seven Premier League matches for Bolton and was ineligible for their FA Cup semifinal last weekend, where they clearly missed his presence and goalscoring ability. It’s refreshing to watch him be able to start matches and score goals, but could that happen for him regularly next season at Chelsea?
The 21-year-old recently stated that he does see his future with the Blues: “I don’t have any other aims but to become a regular [at Chelsea].
“If I can achieve that, then great, but if not I obviously would have to assess what’s going to happen.
“But I’m a Chelsea player and I love playing for the club.”
