Should Chelsea sign Ramos, Tuchel responds to Chelsea’s super League inclusion and Pau Torres addresses rumours in Chelsea roundup…
Real Madrid expect captain Sergio Ramos to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season, should Chelsea hand the Spaniard a deal?
There is no doubt that Ramos has been one of the very best central defenders for well over 10 years now, and looked like that he was going to retire at the Spanish giants.
However, that may not be the case after news broke that he has not agreed a new contract at the club, which means that he may have to leave the club at the end of the season with a move to the Premier League possibly on the agenda.
A new contract offer has been on the table for five months but Ramos’ failure to respond has led Los Blancos to believe he is ready to accept a better offer elsewhere.
Real’s offer is believed to include a 10% reduction in wages as they look to cut costs across the board – something Ramos seemingly isn’t prepared to accept.
The news comes a few weeks after Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has admitted he is unsure what the future holds for the club captain, Speaking at a press conference earlier in the season, Zidane said: “I want to be honest and I have to say I don’t know what’s going to happen with him.
“We want him to stay here. He’s always going to be an important player and I want him to remain here, that’s what I’ll say as a coach.
“Will Ramos play until he’s 40? That is what Sergio has said. He is a special player. His intention is already good because he wants to continue playing.
“Every year he will know if he is in good shape and, if he is like he is now, of course he can play until he is 40, if he wants.”
There is no doubt that Thiago Silva has been brilliant this season for us, but he is only a short-term signing for the club, so doing the same with Ramos would not be a good move when Tuchel has long-term plans.
Chelsea target Pau Torres as responded to the speculation surrounding his future in the summer transfer window.
A product of Villarreal’s academy system has taken in 77 appearances for the Yellow Submarine and after establishing himself as a regular in that starting squad, his regular ole has been enjoyed across the last two seasons, allowing seven international caps to be claimed.
His performances for both Spain and Villareal has led to alot of speculation that we have joined the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United in the chase to try and get a transfer deal done, especially as the young man has a bright future in the game.
The 24-year-old Spain international is aware of the interest he is attracting, but claims to be paying little attention to it as his focus remains locked on the present.
Torres has told El Transistor on the rumours he is generating: “I’m very calm, I have a contract with the club in my town and I’m enjoying it.
“I have to work to help my team.”
There is no doubt that Torres is attracting all the right interest because of his performances and he is at that stage of his career that he needs to join a big club in order to take that next step in his career.
We are in need of a more long-term solution to Thiago Silva, and who best to learn from then one of the best central defenders for the last ten-15 years?
Torres would be a brilliant buy for the club and the Premier League and that £50 million asking price is quite a low one for such a gifted player. It will be interesting to see where he ends up, but if we could get him, he would be a brilliant signing for the club
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has become the first Premier League manager to talk out about the Super League.
Controversial plans were unveiled last night by 12 clubs to form a breakaway new league, with six Premier League clubs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham, signed up to the proposals.
The whole world is watching on to see what clubs, managers and players have to say on the proposed deal, that could end ruin the beautiful game of football that we love in the next couple of seasons
He said in a press conference: “I’ve know since yesterday but I am here to be in the hardest competition, it’s why I came here. To play the toughest competitions in Europe.
“As you know, I don’t get around the subjects around us. I was hoping to talk about Man City and Brighton but it’s not the case.
“I am part of this club and I trust this club to make the right decisions. I think it’s too early to judge everything and it’s not my part. On my badge it says that everyone has to play their role. My role is to coach, be focused, and we’ve another game tomorrow.
“I am always a little bit surprised when it happens. We are all competitors and try to beat each other but in the end we hope a manager is in a good place to work.
“So when it happens, it never feels good as a manager. But it’s not my job to comment but it is what it is.
“Everyone fights hard for results and when a big decision comes, it was a surprised. I didn’t see it coming but I wasn’t focusing too much on their situation!
