Sancho feeling the pressure, £130m striker heading to Prem League, Chelsea told, Agent reveals Chelsea talks for winger, Kane message sent
Sancho feeling the pressure, Haaland heading to Premier League, Kane warned, Agent has Corona message in news roundup..
Borussia Dortmund star Thomas Delaney believes Jadon Sancho is starting to feel the ‘pressure’ caused by constant speculation linking him with the likes of Chelsea
Reports have suggested that we are ready to pay big money to try and complete a transfer deal, as we are looking to freshen up their squads when the transfer window officially opens up.
But despite admitted that Sancho is one of the best talents in the game, Delaney has come out and revealed that the young attacker is starting to feel the pressure of all this transfer speculation.
Asked about his team-mate following Dortmund’s defeat to Bayern Munich, Delaney told ESPN: ‘He’s clearly, one of the biggest talents that I’ve played with.
‘With that talent comes a lot of pressure and I think he slowly starts to feel that from the England national team and clubs surrounding him now.
‘Up until this point he’s been a talent performing very well, performing better than what he is expected to do but there was always going to be a next step and that’s going to be interesting. Next step in his career and his development.
‘I don’t see, as a player, any technical or physical limits for him. He could get up there but the question will be in his head, the effort he puts in and, of course, luck, injuries and stuff.
‘But, only looking at his skills, he definitely has what it takes to become one of the five biggest players in the world. ‘You see big talents go to waste and I would say that he’s already done enough to prove himself.
‘He’s 19 [sic] and he’s got the most goal involvement in the league together with Timo Werner and Robert Lewandowski which is amazing but he should strive for more.’
Chelsea target Erling Haaland will end up playing in the Premier League one day, says Norwegian journalist and former Premier League striker Jan Aage Fjortoft.
We all know that Tammy Abraham has been brilliant for us this season and is leading the line well, but Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi can be hit and miss, meaning that Lampard will need to delve into that transfer kitty and land a striker, a forward that can bang in goals on a weekly basis.
Haaland is one of Europe’s hottest properties having scored 29 goals in 27 games for RB Salzburg before moving to Borussia Dortmund in January and scoring 13 goals in 14 games.
And amid all the transfer speculation regarding the young man, Speaking on The Football Show, fellow Norwegian Fjortoft believes Haaland will “absolutely” play in the Premier League at one point, but he doesn’t see that happening in the short term and praised the 19-year-old’s development so far.
“What I’ve been impressed by Erling and the team around is they’ve chosen he places he can develop as a player.
“He went from Molde – where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was his manager, so you can imagine how hard it was for Manchester United not to get him when he moved to Dortmund! – to Red Bull Salzburg, a great arena for a young kid. And this time he went to Dortmund, which is a great place for him now.
“Do I think he will play in the Premier League in the future? Absolutely, I think he will go to the Premier League eventually, but where he will end up, I am not sure.
“It might take him some time; I think it went quicker than he had thought in Salzburg, with success in the Champions League, but he is in a good place now.
“I can’t see him moving in the short term, but in the long term yes, of course, he will end up in the Premier League, like all big players will eventually.”[the_ad id=”164″]
Chelsea have been told how much it will cost to sign Jesus Corona from FC Porto during the summer transfer window.
Frank Lampard is no fool, he knows that this side need a bit of money spent on it in order to get the club challenging once again, and adding another winger to the side will be on his agenda this summer.
He may have signed Hakim Ziyech back in February, but with the likes of Willian and Pedro leaving the club, he needs to make sure that those departures are met with arrivals or he will be left short next season.
The 27-year-old is highly rated in Portugal, having bagged two goals and 17 assists from 41 outings this season, and the Mexican’s agent recently admitted that there has been contact with the club
Now, as well as revealing the negotiations, Matias Bunge also told the Mexican outlet how much we would have to pay in order to sign Corona.
“The current [release] clause is €30m (£27m),” Matias Bunge told Medio Tiempo.
“From there we’ll see how things happen. Today Jesus has been a fundamental part of Porto for several seasons and we’re going to see where it ends.
“We have spoken with several teams from England, Spain, some from Germany, but well, normally at this time of year we talk more deeply, and in this market the leagues are either resuming or haven’t been able to conclude.
“All the teams are seeing what happens to their sales or their signings so from there the ball continues to roll in the offices.”
Harry Kane should stay put at Tottenham and snub the likes of Chelsea, as he can still win trophies under Jose Mourinho.
Kane is easily regarded as one of the very best strikers in the game right now and is a very loyal servant to Tottenham, but he fulled speculation a few months ago by revealing that he may have to leave the club in search of trophies.
We are one of a number of big clubs reportedly interested to trying to sign Kane, when he comes onto the market, as they believe that he could solve a long-term problem up top.
But legend Jurgen Klinsmann, who left Spurs in 1995 for Bayern Munich to compete for major silverware, urged the England international not to follow in on his footsteps because he is in good hands under Mourinho.
The legendary centre-forward told talkSPORT: “He can achieve anything he puts his mind to.
“He’s so, so talented, exceptional and he’s now into a stage of his career where he is far more mature. He’s not the young lad anymore, even if you think of him as a young player.
“Watching him from a distance, you wish him now titles. When you play a professional career, and you get the opportunity to play in a top-five team in any country in the world, then it’s about winning titles.
“And so, I keep all my fingers crossed for Spurs and for him that he can collect trophies – that’s what it is all about at the end of the day.
“That’s why I left in ’95. Even though I loved it at White Hart Lane, I had to leave for Bayern Munich because I said, ‘Well I’m running out of time. I’m 31 years old and I need to win a couple more trophies’.
“But he has that chance with Spurs, he has a fantastic coach, he has a fantastic team and we all keep our fingers crossed that it happens sooner rather than later.”[the_ad id=”164″]
