Raiola to fly in and hold Chelsea talks, Zapata message sent and Blues get Alaba boost in Chelsea roundup…
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is “100 per cent” staying at the club this summer, says his agent Joao Santos.
Jorginho is now in his third season at the Bridge having followed Maurizio Sarri to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2018, and although he has had his ups and downs, he has become a big part of this side.
However, there has been constant speculation in the media that he would be very open to leaving the club in the coming transfer window and make a move back to Italian football, where the likes of Juventus and Napoli are reportedly interested in a transfer deal, but that will not happen according to Santos.
When asked about Jorginho’s future, Santos told Tuttomercato: “He has a two-year contract with Chelsea. He is thinking about playing in the European Championships and then the World Cup in Qatar. He will remain at Chelsea, 100 per cent”
Asked if the 29-year-old will sign a contract extension at the club, Santos added: “We will talk about it in a few months.”
Look, there are many fans out there right now that firmly believe that Jorginho is a player that they can sell in the summer, he does a good job, but does not add that creative spark to the midfield that would add a few more goals to the attack.
However, as we said, he does a solid job and under Thomas Tuchel, he is a big player, so the news that he intends to stay during the summer transfer window will be massive for the German boss, who will want to keep hold of the players that he currently has.
Mino Raiola is heading to England this weekend to hold talks with the likes of Chelsea about a possible Deal for Erling Haaland.
The Norway international has scored 49 goals in as many games since the switch and is wanted by the best teams in Europe, with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel a known admirer of the Dortmund star, who is currently valued at around £100 million.
Timo Werner has not been able to score the goals that many had hoped for when he signed for the club last summer, and the German hitman has not been helped by the fact both Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud have also been unable to deliver this season.
Following discussions with Barcelona and Real Madrid over a move for Erling Haaland, Mino Raiola will travel to England on Friday to hold talks with four Premier League clubs, Mundo Deportivo claims.
The agent of the Dortmund striker, along with the 20-year-old’s father Alf-Inge, will head to London to hold meetings with Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool amid rumours that the Norwegian will leave Germany in the summer.
It now looks like Haaland will indeed be leaving Dortmund at the end of the current season and it will be very interesting to see just where he ends up, but if we are seriously interested, we do have the money to beat off their rivals and get a deal done.
We could pay his asking price and give him that big wage that he will most likely demand, so it will be very interesting to see just where he ends up.
Barcelona are likely to give up the pursuit of Bayern Munich star David Alaba, who is also being tracked by Premier League giants Chelsea.
There has been alot of speculation regarding the future of Alaba over the past few months, and we are one club that are very interested in trying to tempt the left-back to the Premier League.
Right now Thomas Tuchel has Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso in that position, and although they have been solid this season, there is a feeling that the German boss will still look to add to his squad in the summer, and Alaba is on the list.
And according to the reports that icfootballnews have learnt, is that the board are planning to open talks with the agent of Alaba in the coming weeks, and are reportedly prepared to go as high as £350,000-a-week to seal a transfer deal
However, there were also reports in the media which had suggested that Barcelona were favourites to get a transfer deal done for the player, as they had already make a contract offer to get a deal done.
However, Sport reports Barca can only sign him if he reduces his wage demands and they offload a star player.
Barcelona will need to sell a number of players in the transfer window to settle some of that debt that they have racked up during the covid019 pandemic, meaning that clubs will get a huge boost from them news, of the reports are true.
If the reports are true and we are one of the clubs that are interested in a deal for Alaba, they would be fools to not try and get a deal done, he is one of the best players in his position.
