Chelsea have joined the hunt to sign Ajax superstar David Neres during the summer transfer window.
With the lads seeking to get back into the habit of winning trophies, Maurizio Sarri has been eyeing up a number of possible deals for players that will improve the side, with a winger high up on the shopping list.[the_ad id=”164″]
There is a lot of speculation on the future of Eden Hazard, and since he has failed to agree a new contract at the club, all suggestions point to his departure in just a few months time.
And according to reports on the Daily Express website, we have reportedly been interested in the Brazilian for quite some time with the winger demonstrating his scoring abilities against Real Madrid and Juventus this season.
The talented 22-year old Neres has netted an impressive 12 goals and added 15 assists in all competitions for the Ajax this season, as they managed to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, only being beaten on the away goal rule. (Read More)
Philippe Coutinho ‘is not a Barcelona player’ and will be sold during the summer window.
We are on the look-out for an adequate replacement for Hazard, as the Belgian will be heading to Real Madrid at the end of the season, meaning Maurizio Sarri will be losing his creative force in midfield.
And we have been boosted by reports in the ESPN website which have claimed that Coutinho will be leaving Barcelona at the end of the season, as it has been claimed that they will look to revamp the side after the loss to Liverpool in the Champions League.
“Coutinho is not a Barcelona player, that’s been made clear,” a club source told ESPN.[the_ad id=”164″]
Chelsea star Eden Hazard has once again dismissed speculation regarding his future at the club.
His performances, and goals, have alerted Real Madrid to the fact that he is now in his prime and enjoying the best football of his career and they are reportedly ready to delve in and take the Belgian superstar to the Bernabeu in a deal worth around £60 million.
Maurizio Sarri convinced Hazard to stick with the club for one more season and the club made it clear that they would not stand in his way should he decide to pursue a dream move to Real Madrid, and reports claim the Belgian star has told the club to honour their commitment.
But after the Belgian scored the winning penalty against Eintracht Frankfurt to send the club into the Europa League final, Hazard was asked after the game if he had just played his last game in front of the Blues’ home support.
He said on the Sky Sports website: ‘I don’t think about that. I’m only thinking about winning something for this club and this squad.
‘If it’s my last game I will try to do everything for this club to win a trophy. In my mind I don’t know yet [if it will be his last game].’ (Read More)
Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt will go to England or Spain this summer, according to the club’s CEO Edwin van der Sar.
The 19-year old has shown great leadership, ability and is a physical specimen already, with the likes of Barcelona, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all hoping to try and get a deal done.
David Luiz and even Antonio Rudiger have not been good enough this season for us and it almost cost them a chance to get back inside the top four and Champions League football for next season.
De Ligt’s team-mate Frenkie de Jong has already agreed to join Barcelona at the end of the season for an initial fee of £65m, and Van Der Sar has admitted that he will make the move to England or Spain.
“Frenkie de Jong is already a Barcelona footballer, while De Ligt I think will go to England or Spain,” Van der Sar told Sky in Italy before Ajax were eliminated by Tottenham from the Champions League. (Read More)
