Mourinho – Chelsea To Spend More Money In The Transfer Window

Jose Mourinho has dropped the first hints that his reconstruction of the Chelsea squad is far from complete. In an interview for the Blues’ website he says that Chelsea are still a club in transition and that he hopes to play a part in building a new decade of success at Stamford Bridge. He said:

Chelsea Link To Signing Of £16 million Rated Star

A new name has popped up on the list of strikers Chelsea might be trying to sign to partner (or act as back-up) to Diego Costa. This time it’s Nigeria’s World Cup star Emmanuel  Emmenike, who currently plays for Turkish side Fenerbahce and would reportedly be available for some £16 million. The Nigerian has helped

Chelsea Make £125,000-A-Week Offer For German Attacker

Those rumours about German midfield star Toni Kroos joining Chelsea just won’t go away, will they? The latest reports from Spain suggest that the Blues have made him an offer he might find hard to refuse – £125,000 a week, or about 80 percent more than the Bayern Munich maestro is getting at the moment.

Chelsea Close To Yet Another Signing

“He comes from Portugal, he hates the Arsenal” – and now it looks as if he could be returning to Stamford Bridge, albeit this time from Spain, but presumably with his feelings towards our North London neighbours suitably unmodified. Yes, Chelsea’s former midfielder Tiago appears to be on his way back on a free transfer

Oscar Set For Chelsea Stay After Ignoring PSG

It’s official – Oscar is staying at Stamford Bridge, for one more season at least. He’s confirmed it in comments he made to the French newspaper L’Equipe.  When asked about his futue, he admitted that he had “had contacts” with Paris St Germain but no more, and that they had not gone any further. PSG

Chelsea Clear Out Set To Continue

The Chelsea clear-out, it seems, is about to begin in earnest. So far this summer, the Blues have only sold David Luiz, while the contracts of Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard have been allowed to come to a natural end.  Now we may start seeing the departures of others deemed surplus to requirements. According to

Oscar Could Leave Chelsea – Reports

Reports are gathering that Chelsea are ready to sell another of their big stars. This time it’s their Brazilian midfielder Oscar – a target for both Paris St Germain and Juventus. This time six months ago, this would have been simply laughable. Jose Mourinho was praising Oscar to the skies, saying he was undroppable in

Branislav Ivanovic Set To Leave Chelsea?

A rather worrying rumour reaches our ears and it is this – Chelsea’s hard-as-nails defender Branislav Ivanovic could be playing in red and white next season rather than blue. Ivanovic is wanted by Arsenal as a replacement for their captain Thomas Vermaelen, who is heading to Manchester United if the two clubs can agree a

Why Chelsea Could Sign Mangala Or Varane As Zouma Goes On Loan

Another Chelsea purchase looks set to go out on loan before he’s even played for the first team. This time it’s Kurt Zouma, the young French centre-back we bought from and then loaned back to St Etienne last January. It had been assumed that he would be part of the first-team squad this season, as

Bastian Schweinsteiger To Chelsea?

Last summer it was top-class strikers who were being sold all over Europe. This year, it’s midfielders. Cesc Fabregas has already been snapped up, Ivan Rakitic is on his way, and Toni Kroos and Kevin Strootman could be on the move. Now even Bastian Schweinsteiger, the emperor of midfield generals, looks set to pack his
