Blues get green light to sign superstar – Chelsea ready to sign skilful winger – Osimhen message sent
Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip that we think you guys may have missed –
Real Madrid have ruled out the possibility of signing CHELSEA target Kylian Mbappe – even if he leaves Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer next summer.
Mbappe has been in the transfer headlines since the start of the summer transfer window after he came out and revealed that he has no plans to agree a new contract at the club – and will leave when his current deal expires at the end of the season.
PSG are convinced Mbappe has already agreed to join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer, but with the Spaniards unable to compete in the transfer market because of their financial issues, we have been heavily linked with a move.
However – in recent days there has been some speculation in the media which has suggested that Madrid have been in talks over a potential deal for the Frenchman when his contract expires at the end of the season.
However – they have decided to put an end to their pursuit of the striker, CadenaSER claims. The Spanish giants consider the soap opera to be over and done with and will not attempt to lure him to the Santiago Bernabeu regardless of his situation.
SHOULD CHELSEA SIGN THE MAN?
Look, Mbappe has no loyalties to the clubs he pays for – he goes where the money is and that is not what the club need right now.
He has an amazing amount of talent – but the Premier League is not the French league and that is why he wants a move to La Liga – there are a few great teams and then nothing.
OSIMHEN MESSAGE –
There has been some speculation that Thiago Silva has now opened talks about a move away from CHELSEA.
The Brazilian has been an incredible servant since joining on a free transfer from PSG in 2020. Silva has gone on to become a fan favourite and has really shown that he is one of the greatest of all-time.
However – with the club looking to the future now and heading into a different direction, there has been alot of speculation in the media that the Brazilian star is ready to pack his bags and leave the club at the end of the season.
Now journalist Jorge Nicola has told his YouTube channel that the 39-year-old’s talks to join Fluminese next year are “underway”. While this is over a summer move, Silva’s contract expiry date means that a winter exit is also possible – albeit a “small chance”.
The South American ace has been praised by teammates, like Benoit Badiashile, who told talkSPORT that he’s a “real leader”.
“First and foremost, it’s a real honour to play alongside him,” said Badiashile on Silva this year.
“And do you know what? For a young player like me, he’s someone that makes things easy. He’s a legend, isn’t he? He’s a real leader, he’s very, very experienced of course. Any of the advice that he gives me is always welcome, he’s advised me not only when we’ve been playing – he’s spoken to me during the game.
“But also before the game and in training as well. So he’s someone that you can only learn alongside. And as I say, it’s an absolute honour to line up alongside him.”
CHELSEA READY TO SIGN CHERKI –
Lyon are willing to listen to offers for CHELSEA transfer target Rayan Cherki.
Cherki is a man that is now on the agenda of the board – as he fits the criteria of being one of the most exciting young players in the game that has the ability to develop into one of the best stars in the game.
It has been claimed that Lyon do not want to sell – but that has not stopped the reports in the media that we will make contact over a possible deal for the talented star in the coming windows.
WHAT IS THE LATEST –
The 20-year-old French midfielder from Olympique Lyonnais, has become a top target for several big-name teams in Europe, including CHELSEA and Newcastle United, as his contract with Lyon nears expiry on June 30, 2025.
Aware of Cherki’s contractual situation, Lyon are willing to consider offers for the player in the next transfer window, and According to Fichajes.net, the latest information they have set a price of around 25 million euros for his transfer.
WILL WE MAKE A MOVE IN JANUARY?
What we have seen from that board in the last couple of windows, is that if they want a player, they will pay whatever it takes to get a transfer deal done.
Cherki is a real talent guys, he could be a brilliant addition to that squad if they reignite their interest in the winter window, which we believe will happen as they simply cannot stop themselves from buying players.
The transfer plan from the club is clear – but maybe it is time to add a few experience players to the side?
However – for the money that is being talked about, the lad is certainly a player that Poch would love to have in the side.
