Lukaku and Jorginho to leave, Dybala update given and Alonso makes admission in Chelsea roundup…
Marcos Alonso is a man that has been in the headlines, but will he stay or leave Chelsea in the summer.
While opportunities at the beginning of this season were limited by Ben Chilwell’s good form, there have been plenty since the England international’s knee injury and he has been enjoying his time
However, there has been a feeling that he will not get that much game time when Chilwell comes back to the club, and there are a number of clubs interested in his services.
But, now that he is playing and getting the minutes he wants, he now would like to extend his stay beyond the summer of 2023.
In an open interview at the team’s hotel in Abu Dhabi ahead of the Club World Cup final against Palmeiras, Alonso provided his version of events from the incident that led to him being jettisoned from the then head coach’s plans.
“I watched the game upstairs and with five minutes to go they [West Brom security] told me I cannot be here so I went downstairs to the changing room,” he said. “Then when the referee blew the whistle I went to the coach before the team got back.
“It was not with any bad intention that I wanted to leave but I had a shower at half-time already, I had a shower upstairs and then I just went. I was not happy, of course, with how the game went and everything but it was not any intention to do that.
“I spoke to my team-mates straight after. If someone felt offended or something, everyone was OK. You created the story, but it was nothing like this.”
“I signed a long contract here,” he adds. “Chelsea is the most important club in my career. I want to give back all the trust they put in me. That’s my only target.
“There will be good moments, there will be bad moments. There will be managers coming in and out. My contract is with Chelsea and I serve the club.
“I have always had interest from other clubs but, to be honest, it was never my intention to leave. I wanted to fight for my position. I know what I can give to the team and until the club tell me something else, then that will always be my target.”
Paulo Dybala has been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent times, and fans have been told whether or not he could be joining the club this coming summer
The club did no transfer business in the January window, which was a massive surprise, especially since it was widely believed that Tuchel was keen to add some more quality to that squad.
However, the summer transfer window may in fact be a different story, as Tuchel will need to improve that squad enough to close the gap to Manchester City, who are currently running away with that Premier League title.
Dybala is a player that most clubs in Europe have been eyeing up over the past few seasons, as he is out of contract at the end of the current campaign and with no new deal on the horizon, a move to the Bridge has been mooted
According to Italian football journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, though, the Argentina international wants to stay at Juventus and he believes the £66million arrival of Dusan Vlahovic can actually help Dybala stay at the club.
Speaking to Wettfreunde, Di Marzio said: “Dybala wants to stay at Juventus otherwise he would have signed with another club. He can sign with every club now because he’s free.
“If he decided to wait for Juventus’ appointment at the end of February, it is because he wants to stay. It depends on what offer Juventus will give to Paulo and his agent.”
Dybala is a class act, world class and a very gifted attacker. If he wants to stay at Juventus then that is a very smart move as he is very settled. But at the end of the day guys, we would love to see him in the Premier League.
Chelsea could look to replace both Romelu Lukaku and Jorginho with two Bosman signings in the summer
The January transfer window was supposed to be a time that we dived into that transfer kitty and added a few players to the squad that would help them chase down Manchester City, but despite all the speculation, no players were signed by the club
The club are also facing a contract conundrum with a number of key players inside the final six months of their contracts, and With a host of changes expected at Stamford Bridge this summer, we a look at some Bosman stars who could fill some gaps in Blues squad ahead of next season.
Franck Kessie replace Jorginho
Kessie has been persistently linked with a move to the Premier League over the past six months, as his performances over in Italy have alerted the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, especially since his deal at AC Milan is set to expire in the summer.
He is a real powerhouse and a completely different player to Jorginho, but with rumours the Italian wants a move back to Italian football, Kessie could be a very cheap option for the club.
Ousmane Dembele to replace Romelu Lukaku
So far, Romelu Lukaku’s romantic £97.5million return to Stamford Bridge has been an unmitigated disaster; with injuries and a number of poor performances leading to suggestions that the club are willing to let him leave in the summer.
Tuchel and Dembele enjoyed a fruitful spell together at Borussia Dortmund, where the Frenchman notched 10 times in 50 games before Barca swoop with a mega-money bid for his services back in 2017.
However, his dream move to Barcelona has not worked out and he has struggled since that switch, leading to the fact that he will be out of contract at the end of the current season.
He is not the same player he once was however, and is not a striker like Lukaku, but he can score goals
