Jimenez transfer message sent, Chelsea see German officially sign deal, Chelsea close in on Prem striker as rivals ordered to sell £400,000-a-week star
Guys here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news, gossip and transfer talk from icchelseanews.com over the past 24 hours….
Arsenal MUST sell Chelsea target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to former Gunner striker Jeremie Aliardiere.
Aubameyang may be one of the best strikers in the Premier League and scoring goals for fun on a weekly basis for the Arsenal, but it seems that this is his final season at the Emirates, with reports suggesting he is leaving the club.
There has been some shock reports that we are interested in handing him a nice big contract to leave the scum and make the move to Stamford Bridge, as we still need to add a world class striker to the attack in the summer.
And with the striker only having one-year left on his current deal, Aliadiere, who won the Premier League with Arsenal in 2004, believes the club should cash in
Speaking to Goal, the Frenchman said: “They’ve got to sell him, 100 per cent.
“Arsenal can’t keep losing players on a free. To be honest, I still can’t believe we’ve again got a top player, our captain, going into the summer only having one year left on his contract.
“For me, it has to be sorted when he gets to two years. Last summer he should have signed a deal or been sold. Because when you get down to one year left, in a player’s mind there is a difference.
“If I was Aubameyang and I knew I only had one year left, I would sacrifice one year of my career to go on a free and get paid a ridiculous amount of money and have all the clubs in the world chasing me. Who wouldn’t?”
he father of Wolverhampton Wanderers striker and Chelsea target Raul Jimenez has admitted his son is flattered by transfer rumours.
Jimenez has become one of the most talked about players this season after another impressive campaign with Wolves, which he has shown his true ability and quality on that pitch on a weekly basis.
His performances this season has led to alot of speculation in the media about his next club, with the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and Juventus have all been suggested as potential destinations for the 29-year-old who has scored 22 goals this season.
Now, his father has come out and admitted that his son is flattered by all the interest that has been shown: “Raul has always said so, it’s something very cool” Raul Jimenez Snr told Medio Tiempo.[the_ad id=”164″]
“He’s very happy at his club, hopefully getting into positions for Champions League and Europa League at the moment. Always for him, all of that will be very gratifying, very cool to hear those comments.
“Right now is the time of rumours, God willing the league hopefully resumes next month and that’s where we are right now.
“The rest, there is nothing. He’s only commented on what he sees that they publish, but nothing at the moment.
“Later if there is something different, it will be seen. But now, yes, they are mere speculation and rumours.”
Bayern Munich goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer has extended his contract until 2023.
There has been alot of transfer speculation in the media suggesting that Frank Lampard is keen to sign a new stopper in the summer transfer window as he has not been impressed by the performances of Kepa, who has struggled between the sticks.
And that has led to some speculation in the media suggesting that we are ready to make a move and try to bring in a new stopper at the end of the season, to make sure that they have a more reliable stopper between the sticks for when next season starts
Neuer has spent almost a decade at Bayern Munich, playing close to 400 games for the German club and winning seven Bundesliga titles and the Champions League, but there are reports that Bayern have signed a younger stopper for next season, meaning that he may be forced to sit on the bench.
There had been some hope for us in their quest to sign Neuer during the summer window, but in a statement, CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said that Neuer has now agreed to stay at the club.
He said: “FC Bayern are very happy Manuel has extended his contract until 30 June 2023. Manuel is the best goalkeeper in the world and our captain.”
Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic also said: “The contract extension is an important sign for FC Bayern as well as for Manuel. Together we have created a win-win situation.
“That’s what was very important to Manuel and to us. Manuel stands for the continuous success of FC Bayern, for responsibility and world-class standards. I am delighted about our continued work together.”

Neuer simply brilliant and it is a shame that he is staying put, but it would have been a shock to see him make the move to the Bridge!
