Here is a daily roundup of the latest Chelsea news from us guys.
Roberto Di Matteo has sensationally claimed that Eden Hazard could be at Stamford Bridge next season.
It is believed that Hazard has told the club his decision on what he wants to happen this season, and it has also been reported that a massive £86 million fee has been agreed between both clubs.
However, Di Matteo has claimed that we may pull the plug on a potential deal for Hazard, with the transfer ban stopping them from buying an adequate replacement.
‘Who knows about Hazard? Chelsea have a transfer ban so it is going to be very difficult for anybody to leave that they don’t want to leave,’ Di Matteo told The Sun.
‘He’s the player that makes the difference. He can change a game individually and there aren’t many players like that. It would be a real shame to lose a player like that.
‘Losing Hazard is not great but I’m not sure it will be that easy for him to leave.
‘The club has a transfer ban and letting a top player leave and not being able to replace him, it would be very tough for a top club to buy him.
‘Nobody is bigger than the club. It’s understandable that he may want to experience a different league after being in London for seven years but it might not be this summer.’ (Read More)
Gareth Bale has ‘shown he can’t play at Real Madrid,’ according to former Real player and manager, Mariano Garcia Remon.
With the news that Eden Hazard could be all set to leave the club in the next few weeks, there has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few months which have suggested thatwe will be looking to try and sign the unhappy Bale.
And Remon has now told us that Bale has not lived upto expectations since his big money move to Madrid, despite the fact he has scored 102 goals in 231 appearances across all competitions and has won one La Liga title, a Copa del Rey and four Champions Leagues titles.
‘Real Madrid’s major problem is that they have to assemble an almost entirely new squad,’ Garcia Remon told Radio MARCA.
‘Some of the players have had a very bad season and it’s shown that they can’t play here.
‘Bale is one of them as this year he was given the chance to succeed and become the main man, but he couldn’t take it.’ (Read More)
Wayne Bridge has claimed that he is shocked to see that Maurizio Sarri is still boss at Stamford Bridge.
There has been a lot of criticism in regards to the style of play of Sarri, with many fans chanting ‘F*** Sarriball’ on many occasions this season, despite the fact that he has us back inside the top four and into two finals this season.
“Some say it’s been successful but it’s been very up and down,” Bridge told Sky Sports News.
“They’ve been very inconsistent and consistency is what you want of a big team. That’s what’s going to win you the Premier League.
“I don’t really know where he [Sarri] stands. I’m very surprised that he’s still there.
“They are third [in the Premier League] and they are in a final [the Europa League] but as an ex-player and a Chelsea fan, they would like to see them higher up in the table.
“I know it’s third but they want to see them competing [for the title].” (Read More)
Ruben Loftus-Cheek has admitted that he wants star man Eden Hazard to stay this summer.
It is no secret that the Belgian has a desire to play in La Liga, but reports have suggested that Madrid will not announce any potential deal until after the Europa League final at the end of the month.
But Loftus-Cheek has claimed players are desperate for Hazard to stay put but believes the club must accept his decision should he end up at Madrid this summer.
‘I think he will be remembered as one of the best players to have played for Chelsea, but also one of the best players to have played in England,’ the Chelsea and England midfielder told CNN Sport.
‘I think what he has done for Chelsea over the past seven years is remarkable and he’s helped Chelsea win Premier League titles, Europa League titles.
‘He is such a talented player but he’s still got time left to improve and be even more magical,’
‘As a club then Chelsea thanks him for what he has done if he does decide to move on but we all want him to stay obviously.
‘I think just being around him, just being able to play with him and kind of observe how he is as a person and a human being.
‘He’s a very nice person, he is so focused on what he does. He has a quiet confidence about him that is rare I think.
