Star announces he will stay loyal to Chelsea, Chelsea in talks to sign £250,000-a-week superstar, Italian to make summer Chelsea move?
Guys here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news, gossip and rumours from icchelseanews.com over the past few days.
Chelsea are in talks to sign Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho in the summer window.
Coutinho made a name for himself at Liverpool as one of the best creative midfielders in the game and Barcelona were determined to acquire his services as the long-term replacement for Andreas Iniesta.
However, his move to the Camp Nou has not gone down as well as many had hoped and after the arrival of Antoine Griezmann, he has fallen well down the pecking order, meaning that he was shipped out o Bayern Munich on a loan basis.
The former Liverpool man has impressed in patches with the Bundesliga champions, having an hand in over 20 goals this season for the dominant German Champions, but according there is a feeling that Bayern may not take up the opportunity to sign Coutinho on a permanent basis, meaning we could swoop in for a possible deal.
Now Spanish newspaper AS claims Frank Lampard has already held talks with the player and his club Barcelona over a Premier League return this summer, as he looks to add some superstar players to his side.
Ands it is believed that we will be able to complete a transfer deal for Coutinho in the region of £77 million, which is far less that the £142 million that Barcelona spent back at the start of 2018 to secure the Brazilians services.
Chelsea are keen to wrap up a summer deal for AC Milan stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma
Frank Lampard is a man on mission and is looking to spend some serious money at the end of the season and improve this squad enough to challenge for more than a top four spot, and the club legend has already started his transfer business.
Despite not spending any money during the January window, a few days after the winter window closes, we managed to seal a £37 million deal to bring the highly-impressive and very creative Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech to the club, a move that has been praised by many in the media.
And now, it looks like that he is keen to sign a new stopper as there is a lot of talk that he is not impressed with the performances of Kepa, who has struggled between the sticks this season and has come under intense criticism from the boss for some of his more high-profile performances.[the_ad id=”164″]
And having long been admirers of Donnarumma, the news that Milan could be willing to flog their highly-rated young goalkeeper will be music to the chiefs’ ears, especially as reports on the Calciomercato website have also suggested we are ready to pay him a massive £7 million-a-season to sign up
The youngster has now already made 190 appearances for Milan, while amassing 16 international caps, with many claiming that he is the next Gianluigi Buffon.
Willian has vowed to stay loyal to Chelsea amid the coronavirus outbreak.
There has been talk that he could be leaving at the end of the season as reports in the media have suggested that we may not be willing to offer him a new contract because of his age, and may be willing to let him leave the club on a free transfer, with the likes of Juventus and Barcelona eyeing up a possible deal
But despite his impending arrival in the summer, recent reports have claimed the transfer will not impact Willian, and that we and the stars representatives are still in talks to try and agree a deal that would allow him to stay at the club for the next few years, but there is still some doubt that he could leave the club.
And the Brazilian himself even came out and admitted that he could leave the club at the end of the season for not getting the three-year contract offer that he currently desires, and recent reports have suggested that that Lampard and Marina Granovskaia are battling it out to come to some sort of agreement.
But amid all the transfer speculation, he has assured Blues fans he will remain committed to the cause until the season has finished.
Speaking to Brazilian TV channel Esporte Interativo on a live Facebook chat, he said: “My contract really ends I think in July.
And if I had to play on those dates, in these months, I think it would be no problem for me to end the league in a way which would be loyal to the club, as they always were with me.
“Regardless of a signed paper.
“But without a doubt, as always, I will always be ready to give the best to my club regardless of my contract situation.”
