  Chelsea are looking to bring Christian Eriksen back to the Premier League and sending Jorginho to Inter Milan as a part of a swap deal, Calciomercato reports. The shock move would see Eriksen who previously played for the Blues’ bitter rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, move to Stamford Bridge. Out-of-favour playmaker Jorginho would then make the switch back to Serie A. Chelsea have already contacted Inter regarding a summer trade for Eriksen. Talks between the two clubs are said to be “very much in the early stage,” but progressing. Inter have been linked with a move for Jorginho for some time, but Chelsea consider Jorginho to be of higher market value than Eriksen and would demand cash to complete the transfer. Knowing of Inter’s admiration for Jorginho and Antoni...

Barnsley vs Chelsea: Tuchel Confirms Kepa Will Start FA Cup Tie

Mendy has started all four of Tuchel’s matches in charge so far and conceded just once, but the 28-year-old will earn a rest this evening with the German tactician handing Kepa an olive branch. “He [Kepa] will play [against Barnsley].

Barcelona told they made ‘big error’ selling Luis Suarez

Celta Vigo striker, Iago Aspas, has insisted that Barcelona made a ‘big error’ by selling Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid. Aspas said this after Suarez netted a record-breaking brace during Atletico Madrid’s 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo on Monday night at the Wanda Metropolitano. Suarez’s brace against Celta means the Uruguay striker is now the first player to score 16 goals in his first 17 games for a Spanish top-flight team in the 21st century, beating Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 15 goals. The 34-year-old left Barcelona for Atletico Madrid last summer transfer window after the Catalan club terminated his contract. “The truth is he [Luis Suarez] is a true forward, a winner even in rondos and training matches. He always gave 200 per cent,” Aspas told Marca. “What you see on...

Barcelona Letting Luis Suarez Leave Is The Strangest Transfer Decision In Recent Memory

  Barcelona forcing Luis Suarez out of the club and letting him join rivals Atletico Madrid is the worst transfer decision in modern football. The Uruguayan striker has scored 16 goals in 17 La Liga games for Atletico, breaking a record held by Cristiano Ronaldo (when he joined Real Madrid) for the fastest player to reach that total at a new club this century. Astonishing. Atletico Madrid are runaway Liga leaders: eight points above Barcelona and Real Madrid, and with a game in hand. All this with a player Barcelona were actively trying to get rid of for nothing. No wonder Lionel Messi was fuming this summer after his close friend was pushed out of Camp Nou. The player actually looked set to leave on a free to Juventus, having reportedly been told by Barcelona's incomin...

EPL: David Alaba Gives Condition to Sign for Chelsea

Bayern Munich defender, David Alaba, has given a condition to sign for Chelsea this summer transfer window. Alaba will join Chelsea at the end of the season if the Premier League giants pay him around £20million-a-year. The Telegraph reports that Alaba has asked for close to £400,000-a-week to move to the West London club from Bayern. That would make Alaba Chelsea’s highest-paid player at Stamford Bridge, with N’Golo Kante, the current top earner on around £295,000-a-week. The 28-year-old is set to leave Bayern Munich on a free transfer this summer. Alaba’s current deal with Bayern Munich will expire at the end of June 2021. Chelsea are among interested clubs that want to secure the service of Alaba, with Real Madrid leading the way for his signature. Alaba’s curre...
