Azpilicueta reflects on special Premier League achievement, Barcelona transfer rumours

César Azpilicueta, right back turned left back turned center back, became just the fourth player in Premier League history this season to play every single minute of the league campaign. He joins Gary Pallister (92-93), John Terry (14-15), and Wes Morgan (15-16) in accomplishing this remarkable feat. "Obviously it’s not easy to play every minute and win the league. It’s a big achievement. I’ve tried to do my best to get in the team but I have to be thankful to the manager, he’s trusted me a lot." "I was always in the team and the only way I could repay his confidence was by...

West Ham to make new approach for Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi — report

Before joining Chelsea in a £33 million transfer from Olympique Marseille last summer, striker Michy Batshuayi had been subject to heavy interest from several Premier League clubs including West Ham United. The Hammers were again linked in a loan move in January, and according to ESPN, they remain keen as long as Batshuayi’s situation remains undefined. While Chelsea are reluctant to sell, a loan move could be on the cards. West Ham have made reinforcing their attack a priority for the summer transfer window, and with good reason. They scored only 47 goals in 38 games, finishing in 11th...

Bertrand Traoré vs. José Mourinho in Chelsea-flavored Europa League final

There are of course plenty of storylines attached to the second biggest European final this season — Mourinho putting all his grade A (B? C?) eggs in one basket, Daley Blind and Justin Kluivert playing in a European final just as their fathers did for Ajax, etc. — but as far as we are concerned, the big story is young Chelsea loanee Bertrand Traoré facing the man who gave him his Chelsea debut, José Mourinho, who has bet his entire season (and possibly his club’s ability to sign their transfer targets this summer) on this one match.

Atlético Madrid back in for Diego Costa as Griezmann confirms Manchester United rumors

A new twist in the Costa tale. A transfer rumor of Diego Costa going back to Atlético Madrid is nothing new, but there’s a new wrinkle to it this time around. Last year, the story was that Costa was unhappy in London and wanted to go back to Spain, but by the time all the pieces had aligned for Diego, Atléti had gone ahead and signed Kevin Gameiro instead. And so, Costa had to “tuck tail” and slink back to Conte, whom he informed of his intentions to leave as soon as the new coach had arrived at the club. Despite that auspicious start, the pair formed a productive partnership of...

AS Roma could offer Zouma, Christensen opportunities — report

Frequent Chelsea transfer rumor foils AS Roma are back for another summer of fun as they look to reinforce and upgrade their team to properly challenge Juventus next season. Juve had just won their sixth consecutive Serie A title over the weekend (first three with Conte; last three with Allegri), triggering their buy clause on Juan Cuadrado and triggering a renewed desire in the likes of Roma to dethrone them. Unfortunately for the Giallorossi, their task could be complicated by the summer departures of center backs Antonio Rüdiger and/or Kostas Manolas (both of whom have been linked with...
Juventus complete Juan Cuadrado signing just one year into three-year loan

Juventus complete Juan Cuadrado signing just one year into three-year loan

For all intents and purposes, Juan Cuadrado had already moved from Chelsea to Juventus last summer, leaving the Blues on a three-year loan (3!) that took ages to negotiate and an abacus to decipher. With three years also remaining on Cuadrado’s Chelsea contract, the loan basically amounted to a lease with 0% interest, with Juventus set to pay €5m annually (plus annual add-ons of up to €4m based on performance targets). Additionally, “achievement of certain given team results” would trigger a mandatory buy-option of €25m less loan fees already paid. Turns out that winning the...

How Manchester United can be improved to compete with the elite | Jamie Jackson

The triumph over Ajax ensured qualification for the Champions League. So what should José Mourinho do to make United credible challengers next season?How the manager recruits in the transfer window will be key and the priority is a top-class goalscorer. Antoine Griezmann got 27 goals for Atlético Madrid this season. Everton’s Romelu Lukaku scored 25 in the Premier League. Ideally the manager would like both: Lukaku to be the spearhead in the mould of a Didier Drogba at Chelsea or Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Griezmann to play off him – or Marcus Rashford – as Mourinho has reservations...

I Will Remember You: Mesut Özil Remix

Saturday could be the last match in red and white for the German playmaker. It’s hard coming to grips with the fact that Saturday’s FA Cup Final against Chelsea could be Mesut Özil’s last match in an Arsenal kit. I don’t want to believe it. I think that between he and Alexis Sánchez, the German is more likely to stay. Still, with Arsène Wenger’s future in doubt, a forthcoming Europa League campaign, and Mesut’s desire for one last big contract, there’s a significant chance that he won’t play for the Gunners again after this weekend. A Mesut-less Arsenal next season is a...
