Now Monaco target Chelsea centre-back – Bugger off!

After beating Chelsea to the signing of striker Falcao, newly rich Monaco are reportedly looking to continue their massive spending ways by trying to lure Branislav Ivanovic away from Stamford Bridge. Monaco have already spent huge sums signing Falcao, Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez, and they believe they can convince Chelsea to sell Ivanovic for

Mourinho to Chelsea finally confirmed?

It is being reported this morning that Jose Mourinho has finally signed a contract with Chelsea – but it cannot be made public until after Real Madrid’s final game this weekend. Mourinho has been long odds-on to replace Rafael Benitez and the price is now too prohibitive to even consider a bet. If you put

Can Terry accept his lesser role at Chelsea?

It is perhaps a sign of how good a job Rafa Benitez actually did in the Chelsea dressing room, but there hasn’t been the kind of media outrage at John Terry’s exclusion from the Chelsea first team that we might have expected in recent years. Terry has struggled all season with injuries, and while he

Huge blow for Chelsea as Falcao to join Monaco

It seems incredible, but it really appears that Radamel Falcao will snub Chelsea in favour of a team that has just been promoted to the top tier of French football. AS Monaco have been successful in the past, winning seven league titles and five French cups, but have had all sorts or problems and were

Mourinho set to make young Dutch star his first signing for Chelsea

Chelsea look set to land the young Dutch star Marco van Ginkel from Vitesse this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next year’s season.

Mata's role could be crucial to Chelsea's future

Chelsea have had their ups and downs in the last 2 years. The unmitigated joy of Champions League success, tempered by poor performances and the sacking of club legend Roberto Di Matteo. Frank Lampard’s record breaking goalscoring antics against Fernando Torres’ continued shyness in front of goal in the league. Eden Hazard dominating a game…Eden

Mourinho must be given time to build a dynasty at Chelsea

Jose Mourinho has something of a reputation as a short term manager. He spent 2 years at Porto, just over 3 with us, 2 at Inter and finally 3 with Real Madrid. While on the surface that looks poor, we all know just how successful he has been at each of those clubs, including Chelsea.

Mourinho to decide on future of Chelsea star KDB – and possibly Khedira?

While it hasn’t been announced that Mourinho will be the next manager of Chelsea, there seems to be increasingly little doubt that the switch is already well under way. Interestingly, some of the most certain signs have come not from Abramovich, nor from any of the senior players, but from the young Belgian attacker Kevin

Mourinho’s coming to Chelsea…and Lukaku wants to join him!

Real Madrid and Jose Mourinho have agreed to part company by mutual consent. Real president Florentino Perez made the announcement this evening at a press conference to hordes of completely unsurprised journalists in Madrid. Contrary to reports that he would be officially sacked, Perez has confirmed that the split was a mutual decision. “We’ve decided
