Chelsea continue to demand €45m for Matić; Juventus still want to pay less — report

With the arrival of Álvaro Morata from Real Madrid, Chelsea's striker situation has been sorted out. Still, the Blues still need to find a solution to midfielder Nemanja Matic's predicament, as the Serbian international wants to leave the club following Tiemoué Bakayoko's arrival at the Bridge. One of potential suitors for Matic are Italian club Juventus who, according to Corriere Dello Sport, have been in constant contact with one of the player's intermediaries in agent Giuseppe Riso at their "transfer centre" in Milan. However, the Old Lady do not want to pay up the current demands from...

Álvaro Morata arrives in London for Chelsea medical, signing

Having seen Álvaro Morata check-in for a British Airways flight out of LAX on Wednesday, go through security, and presumably get on board as well, we knew to expect him to land in London around 10am local time. According to the Telegraph he did indeed do just that, and now he’s set to take his medical and sign his contract, both of which hopefully will be nothing more than mere formalities at this point.

New contract but no new contract extension makes sense for both Chelsea and Conte

New contract but no new contract extension makes sense for both Chelsea and Conte

The new deal has confused many with no talk of a longer deal for Chelsea's beloved manager After all the speculation, rumors, and supposed discontent earlier this summer, there’s been some great news this week, including Antonio Conte finally putting pen to paper on a new contract. Except, it wasn’t exactly a new contract in a traditional or expected sense — i.e. additional years as well as improved terms — rather just a pay rise, albeit one to the highest wages ever paid by Chelsea to a manager, but with his deal still due to expire in two years just as before. There is some...

Morata looking forward a ‘strange’ summer’s happy ending with Conte and Chelsea

Morata looking forward a ‘strange’ summer’s happy ending with Conte and Chelsea

Álvaro Morata describes his summer so far as “slightly strange” and considering how he’s been on the other end of the transfer rumor craziness that we’ve been experiencing from our end, that may be an understatement. After all, he looked set for a move to Manchester United not that long ago — after being heavily linked with Chelsea even since Conte took over — and now he’s joining Chelsea instead. “It has been a slightly strange summer for me. A lot of things have happened. In the end, if God wishes, tomorrow I will be at a club that have wanted me for years, with a...

Everton trying to spark Spurs, Chelsea, Man Utd bidding war over injured Ross Barkley — report

Possibly excellent football player Ross Barkley is embroiled in a bit of an ugly contract situation at Everton. Having seen fellow possibly amazing football player Romelu Lukaku get his exorbitant move to and salary at Manchester United, Barkley now wants a piece of that action as well. He’s refusing to sign a new contract, and with just a year left on his current deal, he’s agitating for a move, knowing that unless Everton are willing to let him walk for free next summer (by which time he will be 24 and thus not subject to a transfer tribunal), they have to sell him. Spurs are...
Legal challenge against Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium rebuild thrown out in High Court

Legal challenge against Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium rebuild thrown out in High Court

News around the new stadium at Stamford Bridge has gone a bit quiet in recent months after the planning application was approved by both the Hammersmith & Fulham council in January and the Mayor of London a couple months later. It is hardly surprising for a massive construction project like this to move slowly and with the latest estimates putting it at least five years away, concerns about it were put on the back burner and football itself (Champions!) and then the transfer market took center stage. But as we celebrate the signing of a new center forward and a pay rise for Conte, there...

Chelsea score £58m ‘bargain’ with Álvaro Morata — report

Chelsea score £58m ‘bargain’ with Álvaro Morata — report

After 6.5 years, Chelsea have broken the club’s transfer record, finally agreeing a transfer in excess of the £50m paid for Fernando Torres in January 2011 and destroying the jokey narrative of £35m-signings-only. That’s not necessarily surprising in a transfer market gone haywire, where Kyle Walker goes for £50m, Romelu Lukaku for at least £75m, and Alexandre Lacazette for €50m+ — and that’s before we get to the rumors about Alexis or Alex Sandro or Belotti — but Chelsea have seen fit to float the idea that Morata’s transfer may be just a little less outrageous than...

WATCH: 12 minutes of Alvaro Morata being better than Romelu Lukaku

A taste of what Chelsea are getting It appears that the striker merry-go-round has finally stopped. After months of rumors and speculation, the club announced on Wednesday they have agreed to terms with Real Madrid for the permanent transfer of Alvaro Morata. While personal terms are still left to be dealt with, for all intents and purposes, Chelsea finally have their man. With Diego Costa having one foot out the door and Romelu Lukaku spurning the Blues, it’s the Spanish international who winds up at Stamford Bridge. Despite the long transfer saga, it’s easy to tell from highlight...

He’s got a magic hat, you know. Appearances: 18 starts (19 as substitute). Minutes: 1,328 in Premier League; 534 in domestic cups. Statistics (per 90 minutes, Premier League): 84.36 passes attempted (85% completed); 1.72 tackles won (36.1% success rate); 0.93 interceptions; 0.33 goals; 0.37 assists; 4.05 chances created.

Tomáš Kalas extends Chelsea contract, set for new loan assignment — report

Tomáš Kalas was a surprise addition to Chelsea’s Tour of Asia squad yesterday, as one of the 25 players, many of whom carried badges of honor from previous Loan Army deployments, on the plane to China. After all, he had just one year left on the three-year contract he signed back in 2015 — making a grand total of zero Chelsea appearances since then, while going on loan to Middlesbrough and Fulham — and it had been assumed that he would be leaving on a permanent transfer. Signed as a 17-year-old, surely, the 24-year-old Kalas’s time had come to fly the coop. It would appear that...

In the blue corner, we have Gianluca Di Marzio, the man once known as the Oracle but lately reduced to a bit less lofty status as far as rumor-trustworthiness goes. He (or, just as likely, Sky Italia) claims that Manchester City are now ahead in the chase for Danilo, even though that makes little sense either for club and player.

Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer to save Chelsea from Christian Benteke

Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer to save Chelsea from Christian Benteke

Christian Benteke and his decent strike rate in the Premier League keeps cropping as a possible (backup) transfer target for Chelsea this summer. As scary as that sounds, the Crystal Palace striker had a fairly good debut season for his new club after arriving from Liverpool last summer, scoring 15 goals and providing 2 assists in 36 Premier League appearances. Given those goals, it is no surprise that Palace and their new manager Frank de Boer are not too keen on letting go of one of the their best players. "He's happy here and we really want him to stay. He made a great impact last...

Willian sets sight on new personal record for upcoming Chelsea season

Willian may have played fewer minutes last season than in any of his previous three seasons at Chelsea, but he also managed to be more clinical than he had ever been before — and not just in his time at Chelsea, but in his entire professional career. Willian’s 8 league goals and 12 goals in all competitions were both career highs, the latter beating the 11 he scored the season prior when he briefly turned into a free kick god and was named Chelsea’s Player of the Year. It was certainly a year of extremes for the 28-year-old, who started the season with a new four-year contract in...

Young midfielder becomes first ever player sold by Chelsea to Vitesse

Chelsea have sent an umpteen number of players on loan to Vitesse since the 2010-11 season, which marked the beginning of their unofficial affiliation. In the summer of 2013, Chelsea even bought Marco van Ginkel from Vitesse but there has never been a transaction involving a player moving in the opposite direction on a permanent deal. Or that was the case until today, when Chelsea Academy graduate midfielder Mukhtar Ali signed a 3-year-contract with Vitesse. It’s unclear how much (if any) money changed hands between the clubs themselves during the transaction. Good luck to Mukhtar Ali...

Since acquiring new ownership, AC Milan have been on a massive spending spree, the likes of which have never before been seen in Italy (and that’s saying something considering the exploits of Parma, Lazio, et al. back in the ‘90s), seemingly not giving a second thought to Financial Fair Play or any other such considerations as they attempt to regain their former status and greatness.

Antonio Conte has been at Stamford Bridge for barely over a year, but he’s already made an impact beyond just results on the pitch. In addition to leading Chelsea to a record number of wins and a league title that looked unlikely, to say the least, at this time last year, Conte has made three-man defenses fashionable once again in England, helped Chelsea acquire the most impactful player in the Premier League in N’Golo Kanté, and has overseen, in general, the final leg of the transition from the Old Guard to the new. In the process, he’s also revitalized the careers of David Luiz,...
