Superstar will be an electric signing for Chelsea, Chelsea officially annouce massive deals, (Video) Prem star to solve massive Chelsea issues this month?
Guys here is a roundup of our top stories over the past 24 hours.
Paul Merson has told Frank Lampard that Edinson Cavani would be electric for Chelsea.
There has been a lot of speculation in the media over the last few days all suggesting that we will be wrapping up a late January deal to acquire the services of Cavani a loan deal until the ned of the season.
The striker, who has netted 198 goals for PSG, has already handed in a transfer request this window as he seeks to leave the club, and would reportedly cost us £5 million to loan until the end of the season.
And amid all the transfer speculation, Merson has come out and told the club that the signing of Cavani would benefit the blues, telling the Metro:‘I know his wages are big and he’s not getting any younger but this lad is a proper, proper player and he would be electric at Chelsea.
‘They are dominating games at the moment, playing on the edge of the opposition box all the time. Teams just drop off and park the bus.
‘West Ham sat back. Won 1-0. Newcastle sat back. Won 1-0. There’s something missing. CHELSEA don’t have the guile and they don’t have a world class finisher.
‘Now that Tammy Abraham is injured they need one. Even if he’s only out short term, it’s a lot to expect from him for the rest of the season.
‘Abraham has done really well and is going to be a good player but Cavani’s movement is second to none and he puts his head in. He’s fearless.
‘He could teach Tammy Abraham the game because I don’t think his movement is always that good.
‘The problem is, would Tammy Abraham worry that he’s back to square one if they bring another striker in, and then you lose a young player? You hope not because he’s still got a lot to learn.”
Chelsea have officially confirmed that they have signed a deal to partner up with THREE.
The partnership brings together a Premier League football club and a premium brand in connectivity, with both aiming to build towards headline-grabbing success in 2020. It is, appropriately, for three years initially with Three’s logo to appear on all of Chelsea’s shirts from 2020/21, including Chelsea Women and Academy sides as well as our men’s team.
The deal is a significant one for the club financially but it is also important our official partnerships are a good fit and our new shirt one with Three clearly is.
Football Club chief executive Guy Laurence explained ON THE CHELSEA WEBSITE: ‘Mobile technology has revolutionised the way football clubs and supporters interact with each other which makes Chelsea FC and Three such natural partners.
‘We have a social media following of over 100 million and the official app, The 5th Stand, has had nearly four million downloads. We stream live women’s and Academy football with men’s first team highlights available soon after matches. It truly is an area from which regular fans are benefitting and as communications technology develops in the coming years, Three will be at the forefront of the advances with the exciting roll out of 5G networks, helping to enhance and expand the experience of being a Chelsea supporter in the modern digital age.
‘With Three, we have found a partner, who share our passion for innovation and we are delighted to have them on board and on our shirts.’
Dave Dyson, CEO of Three UK, adds: ‘Chelsea FC is a great match for Three – we share the same values and are both playing to win. This partnership is a great way to kick off 2020, when we are building the UK’s fastest 5G network and Chelsea are building the best team
‘Chelsea FC is many teams in one club – and it is important to us that this sponsorship covers not only the men’s team, but also the women’s and the Academy as well. Three UK has enough 5G spectrum to put us in the top 10 holdings in the world and give our customers the very best 5G service, and we want to be with the team that can drive that winning message over the next few years.’
Chelsea should make a move for Wolves striker Raul Jimenez and here is why.
It is no secret that we are in need of adding another striker to the side, and despite all the talk that Edinson Cavani is the man that will solve all their issues, we should look closer to home.
Jimenez has been brilliant for Wolves this season and is easily one of the best strikers that the League has to offer, and tThe video below gives an update on a possible deal and shows just why we should make the move.
