Striker learning English ahead of Chelsea move? Balague has big Sancho message, Lazio will sell £80 million man to Chelsea?
Balague has Sancho transfer message, Chiesa on the move, Lazio will sell Milinkovic-Savic in Icchelseanews roundup..
Lazio are prepared to sell sought-after midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to the likes of Chelsea in the summer.
We were able to delve into their transfer kitty this transfer window after getting their transfer ban overturned just a few months ago, but despite all the talk, and despite all the speculation, Frank Lampard has been unable to complete the transfer deals that he wanted.
Willian has dominated the headlines over the past few months as he will be leaving after failing to agree a new contract with the club, with reports suggesting he wanted a three-year deal to stay, and we were not ready to offer that.
Now we have been boosted on their chase for Milinkovic-savic, the club’s sporting director Igli Tare has claimed the Serie A side will ‘assess’ things at the end of the season.
“The player’s desire is crucial. Generally speaking, if a player thinks that their time is up and wants to go somewhere else, it shouldn’t be a problem,” Tare told Goal
‘Eras come to an end. Just look what happened to Napoli this season. The fact he stayed in Rome for five years is because he has strong links with the city and club.
‘When there was some temptation, a bit on our part, a bit on his, we never went all the way. However, things must be assessed at the end of the season.’
Do we believe that Milinkovic-Savic will go for £80 million during the summer transfer window? We do not.
Federico Chiesa is ‘especially’ interested in a move to the Premier League, with reports Chelsea are interested in a transfer deal.
The Premier League seasons is surely just a few weeks away from being re-started and finished ahead of the summer window, which will mean that clubs like Chelsea will be able to focus on working on the side.
And that means that Frank Lampard will know if his side are in the Champions League spots, and will also know how much money he will be able to spend when the transfer window opens up.
And although he has an impressive array of talent, there is a feeling in the media that Lampard needs to spend some serious money and add a striker to the front-line, as Tammy ABraham will not be able to do everything himself next season.
Chiesa is being monitored by several top clubs across Europe, with the club also facing competition from Juventus and Inter Milan, as he continues to impress over in Seria A.
Now, according to Italian website Calciomercato, who claim Fiorentina will sanction the winger’s departure providing a ‘rich offer’ is submitted.
We have been linked with the Italy international, who has scored 29 goals and provided 20 assists for the Serie A side, with the report also suggesting Chiesa likes the Premier League and has started taking English lessons in preparation.[the_ad id=”164″]
while Fiorentina chief Joe Barone insisted the club don’t want to see the 22-year-old versatile forward leave the club, they also won’t force him to stay: “At the moment, unfortunately, everything is blocked, so we can only see and talk when everything is over,” he told Calciomercato when asked about Chiesa’s future.
“Everyone is free to make their own choices. We don’t force anyone to stay, we want players happy to be in Florence, to grow in Florence and to try to achieve important goals with Fiorentina.”
Guillem Balague has warned that Chelsea that Jadon Sancho moving this off-season is “very unlikely”.
There has been so much transfer speculation in the media about the future of Sancho that fans do not know what to believe, and whether or not their club will actually make a transfer move.
We seem to be leading the chase to sign the winger who is valued at around £100 million, especially after reports emerged suggesting that he would like a move to London if he comes back to the Premier League.
However, Balague, who is respected in the world of football, has come out and opened up about a possible transfer for the young man, and trying to cool all the transfer speculation regarding Sancho’s future.
He said on the SUN: “I know that obviously Chelsea has looked into the possibility of Sancho, so has Manchester United.
“Sancho is playing with the idea of either staying or going but it needs a huge investment to take Sancho away from Borussia Dortmund right now. We will see if that money’s available.
“If anybody’s got it, according to all the agents I have spoken to, it will be Chelsea or Manchester United or Manchester City.
“But if Manchester City don’t have European football, it leaves Manchester United and Chelsea.”
Balague added: “I have spoken to Chelsea in terms of a couple of suggestions of players that have been mentioned related to them and they said: ‘We just don’t want to make investments, big investments’.
“It leaves then Manchester United who are also saying ‘forget about players that would cost £100m-plus’ – that would be Sancho.
“So as I say very, very unlikely that those things take place.”
Look, there is alot of weeks to go before the summer window and it will be interesting to see where he ends up. But all we know is that there are not many Chelsea fans out there that wouldnt like to see this man arrive.
