EPL clubs’ target attacked by German media

EPL clubs' target attacked by German media

The German media has never been kind to the players who have shown off.

In fact they have been nothing short of rude.

Last year when Frank Ribery was found eating at the $240 restaurant of “salt bae”. The Germans found the incident extravagant and unnecessary. 

Well news flash guys, footballers are rich, successful and popular. 

They did it to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as well. The Gabon international showed off his collection of cars on his Instagram and was immediately picked on by the German media. 

It seems some hateful country of media personnel who are clearly jealous of other people’ success and portray it under a fake banner of equality.

They have done it yet again. This time to Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea target – Jadon Sancho.

The 19 year old kid who has come from England was celebrating his time off by eating at at the same fancy restaurant Ribery was found in eating last year.

This kind of news will only make Sancho want to move back home even more. 

The clubs like Chelsea and Barcelona and Liverpool will be keen on landing him and the German media are making it all too easy.

David Moyes Hopeful Of Barkley Reunion Even After Chelsea Rejection

David Moyes Hopeful Of Barkley Reunion Even After Chelsea Rejection

David Moyes has not given up on signing Ross Barkley despite Chelsea rejecting his January proposal.

Reports claim that the West Ham boss did enquire about one of his former midfielders but Frank Lampard is not ready to let him go this month.

Barkley returned to the Premier League starting lineup against Burnley last month after an absence of over two months. He scored in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest and impressed Lampard in the 3-0 home victory over the Clarets too.

However, the Englishman is still not a favourite at West London. The likes of Jorginho, Matteo Kovacic, Mason Mount and N’Golo Kante are above him in the pecking order. Moyes believes he can convince Barkley into a switch with the promise of more playing time.

The European Championship is knocking on player’s doors and everybody is fighting for a spot in the national team. Competition is tough within the three Lions ranks after the emergence of James Maddison, Jack Grealish and Mount this season. Barkley evidently needs to clock in more minutes and that is less likely in the current situation.

Frank Lampard is right to be hesitant about Barkley’s departures. An already injury ridden first half has put a lot of stress on the current crop of players. He will need the 26-year-old’s presence with Ruben Loftus-Cheek set to return sometime late into the season. However, one cannot rule out the power of a disgruntled player.

Chelsea are a club who are rapidly changing their impression in Europe.

Since their arrival under Roman Abramovich in Europe, Chelsea have been mainly known as a successful club who has had to buy their way to the top. 

They have achieved unparalleled success in Europe but apart from John Terry no other youngster has been able to break through the youth ranks and make the first team on a regular basis in that time span.

However, Frank Lampard’s arrival has changed that. From one youngster to play regularly in the last two decades, it’s now more than half of the team of Chelsea youth stars!

The Blues have found this new approach not only exciting but so popular that their Instagram has started a new series called “Out of the Blue”! In the second episode here it is Mason Mount who is starring!

Will Kays Ruiz-Atil join Chelsea?

Will Kays Ruiz-Atil join Chelsea?

Claude Makelele has reportedly advised Chelsea to sign PSG youngster Kays Ruiz-Atil.

Makelele joined the Stamford Bridge outfit as a technical advisor last August along with other Chelsea legends like Petr Cech and Frank Lampard on the coaching and board side.

Makelele is now reportedly scouting for players for Chelsea to sign in France and PSG midfielder Kays has caught his attention.

The 17 year old midfielder joined PSG from Barcelona back in 2015 as a kid and has trained with the youth team over there. Kays has contract with the Paris team till 2021. 

However, Chelsea, who are believed to be building an young team are really interested in getting on board talented youngsters.

Since Lampard’s arrival last August, the club’s approach has for the first time holistically changed into building a club that is based on youth talent and oragnically developed players rather than buying million dollar superstars.

Hence, Kays fits into that bill perfectly. As for PSG, they are desperate to not lose their stars. The Paris team are somewhat of an outfit who are unable to convince anyone of their project and keep losing important players despite plugging in so much money. 

Will Kays follow suit?

Chelsea fullback Reece James has extended his contract with the Blues – worth £100,000!

His deal has been made till 2025 now – so another five years have been added to his already existing deal.

James said: “It has been my dream to be here at Chelsea and play week in week out and to have a contract for another five-and-a-half years is living the dream again.

“I have always wanted to be here and another five-and-a-half years means a lot to me and a lot to my family.”

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: “The smooth way Reece has fitted into the team so quickly despite missing the start of the season has been clear for everyone to see.

“And the fact another exciting young player is part of the future of the club is a result of great work by our Academy, our loans department, our new coaching staff and of course the player himself.

“Reece started his football education with us at the age of six and his performances on loan at Wigan last season paved the way for a strong beginning to his career in the Chelsea team.

“We are very pleased he now has the perfect opportunity to build on that and become a major player for us for many years to come.”

Why Chelsea star N’Golo Kante was left out of UEFA’s Team of the Year

The Team of the Year for 2019 was revealed.

But it wasn’t what everyone expected.

UEFA unveiled their Team of the Year 2019, voted for by the fans, on Wednesday. The revelation however, left the fans a little surprised. The European governing body had changed their formation from the usual 4-3-3 to 4-2-4.

The line-up, saw Cristiano Ronaldo pair with Robert Lewandowski on the front. It also features Sadio Mane and Lionel Messi on the flanks. Kevin De Bruyne and Frenkie De Jong were fielded behind them while Liverpool trio, Virgil Van Dijk and the fullback pairing of Andrew Robertson were joined by Matthijs De Ligt in defence with Alison on goal.

However, what raised eyebrows per the Daily Mail, is that UEFA altered the formation at the last minute to fit in Ronaldo. The Portuguese received less votes than Messi, Mane and Lewandowski in the forwards category and was set to miss out from the team altogether. This angered UEFA officials – such is Ronaldo’s popularity – so the original release date of the team was delayed by a week to manoeuvre the 35-year-old into the XI.

The unlucky man to miss out? N’Golo Kante, with the Frenchman just behind De Jong and De Bruyne in he voting. However, a spokesperson for UEFA attempted to explain the scandalous decision. They claimed that Portugal’s success in the UEFA Nations League was the catalyst for the formation change.

The formation for this year’s team of the year was chosen to reflect the votes of the fans in parallel with the players’ achievements in UEFA competitions,” they said. “As a result, there are five UEFA Champions League winners and four UEFA Nations League finalists. The formation changes on a regular basis and this year is no exception.”

Not exactly an appropriate explanation, is it? Kante, Chelsea and France have every right to make an official complaint over the issue.

Christian Pulisic Injury Update Ahead Of Newcastle United Visit

Christian Pulisic Injury Update Ahead Of Newcastle United Visit

Christian Pulisic is hoping to return to the pitch sooner after suffering a adductor muscle injury on New Year’s day.

The winger pulled up during the 1-1 Brighton And Hove Albion and has been out of action ever since.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has replaced the USA international on the wings and has done really well. This has become kind of an on-going theme where one of the two gets injured the other fills in to claim his starting spot.

Come back stronger @cmpulisic 💪🏼

A post shared by Christian Pulisic // CFC (@pulisicfc22) on

“It’s been almost a week, and I’m just kind of taking it day by day,” Pulisic told ESPN . “I’m just rehabbing every day. I’m doing my best to be back in the next week, the next couple weeks. I don’t think it should be too long, so I’m just working every day, doing everything I can to be back on the pitch.

“Everyone says I’m going to go into the Premier League, it’s a big change, it’s tough. It’s a league where there’s definitely a lot of games, a lot of stuff going on, and it wasn’t easy for me at the beginning, of course.

“I think I’m really proud of how I pushed through things and then I got my opportunity, and I felt I was playing very well recently, and I’m proud. It’s been great. I’ve been enjoying it so much. You know, the football culture here is amazing, and I’m really happy, and I’m so excited to finish off the season strong.”

Pulisic is definitely ruled out for this weekend’s Premier League tie against Newcastle United.

Chelsea Want To Make Statement Signing Like Jadon Sancho

Chelsea Want To Make Statement Signing Like Jadon Sancho

Chelsea are keen on making a statement signing like Jadon Sancho, according to transfer expert, Duncan Castles.

“I’m told they’re looking at wingers at present,” Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast. “One of those strong options for them is Jadon Sancho.

“My understanding is the club, i.e. Roman Abramovich and Marina Granovskaia, are very keen on taking Sancho. They’re keen on making a statement signing now that they are able to work in the transfer market again and have a lot of resource to spend in this window.

“They see taking a young England international, who has very high status in England because of what he’s achieved at Borussia Dortmund and in the national team, as a good way to go forward.”

He added, “Whether that is the best way for Chelsea to go forward, I think there are internal doubts about that and maybe the money which would be involved in taking Sancho, with Borussia Dortmund asking for over €100m for him and the player also wanting very substantial financial terms, could be invested better in a different kind of winger and money used elsewhere in this window.

“There’s been an enquiry about Lewis Dunk at Brighton, so there’s a prospective they could improve at centre-back and also thinking about doing something at left-back, and obviously that centre-forward position is one that, even if they don’t do something in January, will require consideration in the summer, with Olivier Giroud wanting to move to Inter and still serious doubts about whether Michy Batshuayi is the right answer as a backup to Tammy Abraham in the attack.”

Throwback to the Chelsea squad that won the Champions League!

When you look back to the Chelsea team that beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, you really do find hope in the new generation of Blues players.

Chelsea beat Bayern through penalties when super Didier Drogba flew into a near post header to equalize the scoreline and sent both teams to extra time. It was also his penalty which wrapped up the trophy for the Blues.

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson is no more a Chelsea target

Two AFCB players have been on the Blues radar.

However, it seems that they have given up pursuing them.

Chelsea have reportedly decided that they will not make an offer to lure Callum Wilson away from Bournemouth in their attempts to bolster their attack. The Blues currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League table as they continue to try and fend off the chasing pack in the battle for that last Champions League qualification spot.

Frank Lampard has relied heavily on Tammy Abraham to lead the line for his side this season, with neither Olivier Giroud nor Michy Batshuayi getting a great deal of playing time. For a side looking to compete on multiple fronts, that is surely not an ideal situation as they could do with more quality depth in that department, but it doesn’t sound as though Wilson will be the solution.

As reported by Sky Sports, as well as snubbing the idea of re-signing Nathan Ake, Chelsea are being tipped to opt against making a bid for his Bournemouth teammate. However, it’s noted that despite scouting the forward, they will look at other targets instead and given he’s managed just six goals in 24 games so far this season, that is arguably looking like a sensible decision from the Blues.

Time will tell who is targeted instead by Chelsea this month as they are free to sign players after their transfer ban was reduced, but it doesn’t appear as though Wilson will be plying his trade at Stamford Bridge any time soon.
