Here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news and gossip from icchelseanews.
Bruno Satin has claimed Raphael Varane is considering leaving the Spanish giants this summer as he has achieved all he can at the club, alerting Chelsea in the process.
It is no secret that Varane is now one of the best central defenders in world football, with his performances next to captain Sergio Ramos for the Spanish giants helping the club to a number of Champions League and La Liga title wins.
However, there has been a lot of transfer speculation In the media which have all suggested that he is heading for the exit signs come the end of the season, with Maurizio Sarri a massive fan of the Frenchman and his world class abilities at the back.
And now agent Bruno Satin has revealed that Varane is seriously considering leaving the club and giving himself a fresh challenge in the game.
“I spoke recently with Anthony, Raphael’s brother, so we discussed a little bit about the state of the market so to speak,” Satin told Late Foot Club.
“So I think at this moment in his career he is having a profound reflection, I don’t think he has fully decided to leave Real Madrid, but he is thinking about it.
“Because he has won everything that you can at Real Madrid, because he feels like he has the feeling that he has done what was to be done over there, and there could be a new cycle.
“Aside from that, I have not spoken directly with Raphael myself.”
Chelsea transfer target and Ajax star Matthijs De Ligt has dropped a massive hint about whom he would like to play for in the coming transfer window.
De Ligt is regarded as one of the finest young defenders in world football and is tipped to become one of the best in world football after a stunning first few seasons with the Dutch giants, who have just knocked out Real Madrid in the Champions League in sensational fashion.
We have been linked with a move for De Ligt as they seek to buy a long-term investment rather than a short-term fix, although the transfer ban may scupper any chance they have of sealing a deal.
But ahead of the titanic tie between Ajax and Juventus, De Ligt he dropped a big hint about his next move when praising his opponents.
“I really like [Giorgio] Chiellini, he is very strong, one of the best ever defenders,” he said on the TalkSport website.
“I also appreciate [Leonardo] Bonucci, they are two of the best centre-backs in Europe. For a young man like me, they are both two models to be inspired by.
“Me at Juve? It could be, but there are also other interested clubs. We’ll see at the right time.
“Now, I’m focused on Ajax and my agent Mino Raiola will take care of it.”
Kalidou Koulibaly has hired his brother as his agent as he seeks for a big-money move away from Napoli this summer, reports have emerged and claimed.
Regarded as one of the finest defenders in world football right now, Koulibaly has been making all the right headlines over the past 12 months as his stock in the game continues to rise after every impressive performance he puts in for Napoli.
But despite the fact we cannot buy players, there is still a chance that the transfer ban could be overturned before the transfer window and Sarri has been boosted by reports on the Independent website which say Koulibaly parted ways with his agent, Bruno Satin, late last year and hired his brother in order to force a big money move away from Napoli.
Pressure from the defender’s family, who want a bigger piece of the finances surrounding any transfer, is said to be the reason for the break, despite the fact that Napoli have indicated that they have no desire to part company.
