Brazilian opens door to shock move, (Video) Fans wants Sancho, Striker on way?, Willian replacement found? CEO opens door to Coutinho deal
Guys here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news, gossip and transfer speculation from icchelseanews over the past 24 hours.
Chelsea star Willian has opened up and officially told fans that he could be leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
We surprised many in the media over the past few days by completing an early deal to bring Hakim Ziyech to the premier League next season for a small fee of £37 million, with many believing that he is the immediate replacement for the ageing Willian, who has been linked with a move away from the club.
There has been talk that he could be leaving at the end of the season as reports in the media have suggested that we may not be willing to offer him a new contract because of his age, and may be willing to let him leave the club on a free transfer, with the likes of Juventus and Barcelona eyeing up a possible deal
But despite his impending arrival in the summer, recent reports have claimed the transfer will not impact Willian, and that the club and the stars representatives are still in talks to try and agree a deal that would allow him to stay at the club for the next few years, but there is still some doubt that he could leave the club.
But after passing his British Citizenship test, Willian has now come out and admitted that this may be his final year at the club because of the contract issues surrounding his possible deal, ‘Chelsea offered me two years, and they are not going to change what they offered,’ Willian told Esporte Interativo after Chelsea’s defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
‘I said I wanted three more years. ‘The situation is difficult because of this, I really don’t know if it will be possible.
‘My goal is to continue working and focus on this remainder of the season, so that Chelsea can continue winning the games for the remainder of the season.
Guys there has been alot of Chelsea news over the past three days and we have been discussing the latest news.
The summer transfer window is still a few months away and we will still need to get back inside the top four by the end of the season to guarantee Champions League football, and then attract some world class players to the side.
Frank Lampard knows he needs to improve in all sorts of areas of the pitch and should be able to spend £150 million on new signings if the board actually decide to hand him the money he needs to get the kind of players he NEEDS to sign in order to challenge both Liverpool and Manchester City.
And in the video below, fans have been calling for a certain £128 million signing, while we have been boosted in their chase for a striker and an £80 million possible Willian replacement, enjoy
Chelsea may be able to seal a deal for Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho in the summer, after Bayern Munich made a big announcement.
Coutinho made a name for himself at Liverpool as one of the best creative midfielders in the game and Barcelona were determined to acquire his services as the long-term replacement for Andreas Iniesta.[the_ad id=”164″]
However, his move to the Camp Nou has not gone down as well as many had hoped and after the arrival of Antoine Griezmann, he has fallen well down the pecking order, meaning that he was shipped out o Bayern Munich on a loan basis.
The former Liverpool man has impressed in patches with the Bundesliga champions, having an hand in over 20 goals this season for the dominant German Champions, but according there is a feeling that Bayern may not take up the opportunity to sign Coutinho on a permanent basis, meaning wecould swoop in for a possible deal.
The Bundesliga champions can secure Coutinho’s signature for £102million at the end of the current campaign, and it seemed that he was keen to stay put, but CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has publicly criticised Coutinho for his inconsistent displays and has admitted that Bayern is still unsure whether to trigger an option to make his season-long loan spell permanent.
“He has played well in some games. Sometimes he gives the impression that he’s inhibited,” Rummenigge told Bild.
“Everyone tries to support him. We must hope that he will become an important factor in the decisive weeks to come.”
Look there is a lot of indications suggesting that Willian is leaving, but if we could tempt Coutinho to the club at the end of the season, it would be a fantastic move and he would most certainly add that superstar factor to the side that we need.
