Agent opens up about transfer, Auba told to ignore Chelsea talks, Shock Coutinho transfer message sent
Guys here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news gossip, and transfer news from icchelseanews…
Chelsea target Marcelo Brozovic’s agent, Miroslav Bicanic, discussed the player and the rumours that he could leave the club in the summer.
The Premier League is still suspended until further notice and there is no real news about when it is going to resume, but despite the uncertainty, the summer transfer window will go ahead as planned, meaning there is alot of speculation about possible summer arrivals to the Bridge
Frank Lampard has done a good job, despite the fact he has not had the money to buy some big names, but in the summer he will need to spend some serious money and try to acquire the type of players that will help challenge for that Premier League title.
And on the shopping list of the legend is the name of Brozovic, who has been a big part of Antonio Contes Inter side this season, and constantly dictating the pace of the game, where he has managed three goals and five assists.
But there is some doubt that he could stay at the club and now his agent, speasking in an interview with Croatian media outlet Calciomercato has opened up about the future of the Inter star.
He said: “Brozovic is currently the most attractive Croatian player on the market. He is at the height of his career, he has all the qualities needed, but we can’t make a decision about next season before the second half of June due to the Coronavirus crisis.
‘However, a transfer worth his release clause of €60 million could take place in the period from 1 to 15 July, when it’s valid.”
“We have agreed to act with discretion, giving the public as little information as possible until we have a final solution.”
Craig Burley has urged Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to ignore Chelsea and aim higher if he leaves Arsenal.
Aubameyang is approaching his 31st birthday, and without a major title to his name, there has been alot of speculation in the media which is suggesting that he is looking for a way out of the club, with us, Barcelona and Real Madrid all reportedly interested.
But it is the reports linking him with a move to the Bridge which has got the Premier League talking, as we are reportedly ready to pay that massive £70 million asking price that Arsenal have set, while they are also prepared to his massive asking wages of around £300,000-a-week.
However, Burley has urged the player to aim higher than us right now as we are going through a transitional phase which is not guaranteed to bring some silverware, He told ESPN: ‘The decision he’s got to make is what do I have in terms of options, Chelsea are a project at the moment, if he believes they are a project far enough down the line that are going to compete when everything gets up and running again, then fine.
‘At his age, he’s really going to be looking to get into somewhere where they’re going to be fighting for the title now, they’re going to be fighting for the Champions League now.[the_ad id=”164″]
‘That’s where he is in his career, he’s good enough to be doing that, he’s shown that at Dortmund, he’s shown that at Arsenal, an inferior team, so he needs to make sure he is making the right decision.’
Burley added: ‘I believe if he gets an offer from clubs that are further down the line than Chelsea in terms of their progress, I think he will take that.
‘But if Chelsea can get him, they should go for him, and if Arsenal lose him that’s just another big body blow to Mikel Arteta.’
Chelsea need to forget about making a move to sign Philippe Coutinho this summer, because the Blues would be better off fixing their problems in other positions instead.
WE have been linked with a big money move for the Brazilian for weeks now after reports emerged suggesting that he was leaving Barcelona during the summer window, with the Premier League his preferred destination.
Recent reports have even suggested that we have been offered the chance to sign Coutinho at the end of the season for a fee of around £70 million, which is well below the £137 million that Barcelona paid Liverpool just a few seasons ago.
But Speaking on ESPN, Craig Burley explained that he feels the squad is lacking both in defence and attack and should forget about spending so much money on trying to sign Coutinho.
“I’m not sure if this is a go-er, exactly,” he said. “They’ve got a handful of playmakers already, albeit more natural wide players.
“Mason Mount made a big impact in a short period of time after playing in the Championship just 12 or 18 months ago.
“If I was able to get Philippe Coutinho in my team, would I take him? Yes, I would.
“But it’s going to come down to finances, budget, and it’s going to come down to what Frank Lampard needs more.
“What positions does Lampard really feel Chelsea need the most?
“First and foremost, that’s a frontman. Then you might look at a centre-half.
“If this deal can be done at the right price, there is potential. But I think Chelsea’s problems are in other positions.”
