CHELSEA ENTER TALKS WITH MOSES

English Premier League giants Chelsea are reportedly in talks with Victor Moses for contract extension.


The impressive form the player is showing, and rising interests in him by oppositions have forced Stamford Bridge to bring talks forward. Even Sky Sports claims Barcelona have made Moses a transfer target.

Chelsea switched formation to 3-4-3 that has seen Moses put up a series of brilliant performances in a new wing-back role. His display has been crucial to the success of the Blues and partly responsible for the brilliant turn-around that has sent them to the top of the league standings. Chelsea have enjoyed a seven-game winning streak that saw them end Tottenham Hotspur’s unbeaten record in the Premier League over the weekend. Moses got the second goal in the 2-1 victory, aside goals against Burnley and Leicester City. His four goals in 14 games have contributed to the hastening of the new deal.

The 26-year old Nigeria international is under contract until 2019 since he signed in 2015, but will likely get an extension that will tie him down till 2021. He was on loan to West Ham after signing the contract in 2015, starting only 16 games before returning to Stamford Bridge. His new role has made him an almost permanent member of Coach Antonio Conte’s side.

Chelsea’s technical director Michael Emenalo – a Nigerian as well – has been impressed with the player’s recent performances, and Sky Sports report that he is key in the new deal Moses would get. Barcelona want Moses as the player’s transition from the winger role means he takes up defensive jobs. The Nou Camp want Moses to take up the right back position as they want replacement or at least competition for Sergi Roberto. Conte wants Moses to remain at Chelsea, and he has advised that he remain focused on the present.

CHELSEA TO SPEND MORE TO GET N’ZONZI

Rich English football club Chelsea would be required to spend more money in transfer deal if they want Steven N’zonzi, according to reports.


The midfielder has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge but his parent club Sevilla are set to offer him a new deal that would see his release clause raised far above the £27 million he is currently priced.

Daily Star report that the Europa League defending champions want the player to remain, but would get as much as possible if he were to exit the side. Club president Jose Castro told Spanish football news outlet, Don Balon:

“I know that N’Zonzi is attracting a lot of interest, and because of that we’re talking about a new contract. It is only a good thing that teams are chasing him, there isn’t anything negative in that. We always want to keep good players in our team, unless there are offers that you can’t turn down.

Conte believes in Chelsea revival

Antonio Conte believes that Chelsea can become champions again despite enjoying a bad season last term.


He said that it was the same thing with Juventus when he took over and that he managed to turn the team into a side capable of winning the Serie A. Antonio Conte believes that he will be able to do the same with Chelsea.

He said that it was the same thing with Juventus because they did not manage to win the title for a long time. He said that even the players thought it was impossible to get back on top of the Italian league and that he had to fight to make everyone believe in his project. For him, it is important for the players to believe in themselves and make sure that they give the best in training. He said that there is no shortcut to success and that each player should work hard in training.

Antonio Conte believes that if the team sticks together and that they continue to train together they will be able to improve the team spirit and improve the gameplay. He is adamant that they can become like the Juventus team and dominate the Premier League in the years to come. However, this will not be automatic, and that fans should give them some time to improve and then they will see the result.

Iker Casillas reckons Chelsea might be struggling in their domestic league

Iker Casillas reckons Chelsea might be struggling in their domestic league, but, they are good enough to get the better of any side in Europe and thus, none should dare to take them easy.

It’s Casillas’ team, FC Porto, which is gearing up to face the Blues at the Stamford Bridge tomorrow in a vital contest in Group G.

While, the winner of that contest will be able to advance to the pre quarter finals, the loser might get eliminated from Europe.

In the media conference earlier in the evening, Casillas, who is in his debut season at Porto, said, “They have definitely not looked that solid, but, when you see the depth of their squad, it concerns you as an opposition.”

“We are in a position where a defeat would knock us out. One point is absolutely necessary, but, we would not be playing with the mindset to try and force a draw. That sort of approach would backfire. We would be positive.”

“If you bar the Dynamo game, it’s been a decent campaign for us. Losing at home certainly hurt us badly, it was painful, but, hopefully, we still get through with a good performance over here at Chelsea.”

Casillas has been Porto’s first choice between the sticks since coming in and he has played alright, the Spaniard.

Porto, as a team, has also done well in all competitions in the 2015-16 Season.

Real Madrid’s Pepe is turning into a summer target for Chelsea

The Portuguese centre-half of Real Madrid, Pepe has reportedly entered the radar of Chelsea and Jose Mourinho. Pepe is 32 years old but even at his fairly elevated age, he still manages to play at a high level and is a regular starter in Real Madrid.

It does remain unclear as if Pepe will be able to play at that same high level if he makes a move to the Premier League and joins Chelsea.

Pepe has a contract with Real Madrid which extends until the end of next summer but for a transfer fee of around €11 million it’s rumoredto be enough for Chelsea to sign the defender and lure him away from the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid’s Pepe has a very aggressive playing style and it doesn’t even come as a surprise to see him receiving yellow or red cards constantly throughout each season. Despite his hostile nature, Pepe is highly rated and considered to be one of the best defenders in the world as he isn’t afraid to give it everything he has in the pitch in every single match.

Arsene Wenger dismisses about his Club in Race of Title Race

Arsene Wenger has dismissed suggestions that his club are in the title race after closing the gap to Chelsea in the last few weeks. The advantage held by the West London outfit has been reduced to just seven points amidst poor form.

Arsenal, on the other hand, recently managed to secure their sixth consecutive victory in the league after a 2-1 score against Newcastle United. This has reduced the gap to a manageable level with eight matches left in the season. Even though Chelsea do have a game in hand, Jose Mourinho has been quick to suggest that Arsenal are in the title race.

Concerned that this would put unnecessary pressure on the team, Wenger stated that his team are merely concentrating on finishing in the second spot. There is a real possibility of Arsenal finishing above Manchester City, who have managed only four league victories in the last 10 matches. City are only one point above Arsenal following this weekend’s results. It was only recently that they suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Burnley. More key matches are set to threaten the reigning Premier league champions in the last few weeks of the season. Arsenal also have tough matches against the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea.
