Yesterday Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata and his agent met Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici so many interpreted this meeting as the first step for a possible return of the Spanish player to the Italian champions.

However, today, Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta denied the club is interested in Morata: “These are simply rumours. I want to deny them, we don’t want to deceive anyone”. Marotta said during the launch of a book about Juventus. “We already have a great attack of international calibre, so it’s an area where we don’t have to make any bets. Therefore, at this point, any operation seems totally utopian”.

Giuseppe Marotta also claimed there’s the chance Morata himself would love to play again for Juventus as he remembers the time he spent with the “Bianconeri”: Now we are in the most important phase of the transfer market, so as always, every day, they link Juventus with many players,” Marotta went on. “That also applies to the Morata affair which is on the agenda today. The fact is that the most important players of this Agnelli cycle who have gone away all carry with them a great memory of Juventus, and almost all of them want to savour the Juventus climate”.

Chelsea are working to appoint a new manager for next season. Blues’ legend Frank Lampard isn’t a candidate this summer, but he hopes he can sit on the London’s club bench in the future.

Chelsea, of course, is like a dream job that will be there one day. But that is not always the route that it takes, so it might take me to go somewhere else before I can ever do that”. Lampard told Goal.com. “We will see, but I certainly have ambitions to do it”.

Lampard it’s aware it not depends primarily on him, but he admits he will accept a Chelsea managerial role with no hesitation: “How could I not take it if Chelsea offered me the job?” the former Blues midfielder went on. “Chelsea are my club and I feel like I have a lot to offer. But that’s obviously for other people to decide, for important people, if and when I am ready to do that.”

Chelsea finished their season with a high note, winning the Fa Cup last Saturday vs Manchester United.

A day to remember also for the Blues defender Cesar Azpilicueta: “I really enjoyed that, for our last game of the season it was a great effort to win the FA Cup,” Azpilicueta told Chelsea official website. “We had to defend well and we did just that to ensure it was a great final day of the season”.

It was important to win this trophy because Chelsea had some difficult weeks during the Premier League campaign this year: “I think for the first part of the season we were really good, but then we had a couple of weeks where we weren’t at our best and we dropped off a little”. Azpilicueta admitted. “So it was very important for us finish the season and to win a trophy for the club and for the fans. They deserved this.”

Eden Hazard will be one of the stars of the Russia 2018 World Cup and, this summer, he will also be the target of many European top clubs, with Real Madrid in the front line in the race to sign the Belgian striker.

However, the Blues player confirmed he is focused on Chelsea and he is already thinking about winning the next Premier League with the London club: “We have a lot of top players, players who are used to winning trophies. We will be ready next season,” Hazard told the London Evening Standard. I think all of the players and the club want one thing and that’s to win the title. Of course we will see if we can bring in some new players. But we will be focused on winning the title.”

Hazard also claimed it will be difficult for Manchester City next season, as it was for Chelsea after winning the 2016-2017 title: “If City keep playing like this, it is going to be hard, but you never know in football,” Hazard went on. “It is always hard to win the league one season and then win it again the next year.”

Chelsea player Willian had just few words to say yesterday in Wembley‘s mixed zone after the Blues win over Manchester United.

As reported by Manchester Evening News, when asked by reporters to comment on the game and Chelsea’s win, the Brazilian player just said “I have to go” and left the mixed zone.

Yesterday Willian played just few minutes in stoppage time and started the game on the bench; moreover, according to various speculations he is a Mourinho‘s target for the next summer transfer window and the relationship between the Brazilian and manager Antonio Conte is not very good.

Everything has changed for Victor Moses in 12 months: last year the Nigerian player was sent off during the Fa Cup final vs Arsenal and Chelsea lost the game; yesterday, on the other hand, Moses himself played an important role in the Blues win over Manchester United.

I am very pleased. After what happened last year this was different and we are very pleased to win the game,” Victor Moses admitted to Chelsea official website.

Victor Moses also praised the team, their attitude in the first half, and their strenght in the second part of the game: “I thought we were tremendous. Man United kept coming at us second half. In the first half I thought we had done very well and should have scored more goals, but we kept it cool and we were very solid at the back. We know we have the ability to defend”. the Nigerian went on. “All the lads who have never won it before are very happy and we are very happy to win this FA Cup, it is very important for us.”

Chelsea ended their season yesterday winning their 8th Fa Cup: as predicted by Blues legend Frank Lampard, star Eden Hazard was crucial as he scored the only goal of the final vs Manchester United.

There are a lot of speculations that Hazard himself could leave Stamford Bridge this summer as Real Madrid are interested in signing the Belgian striker. His team-mate Olivier Giroud hopes, however, Hazard will stay in London also next season:

Of course I want Eden to stay — who doesn’t want to play with him?” Giroud said after the Fa Cup final as reported by Metro. “I want to carry on working on our partnership. The two of us have only been playing together a short time but we have a good relationship on the field. We play close together because that’s what the manager wants us to do.”

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has his say ahead of tomorrow’s Fa Cup final at Wembley.

Many believe Paul Pogba can make the difference in favour of Manchester United, but the former Blues’ midfielder thinks in a different way.  “I don’t know what Pogba is. He makes bad decisions but then does fantastic things which must wreck Jose’s head”. Lampard said as reported by The Mirror. “Pogba is naturally more talented than I was, he would run all over me and has better feet, but there’s no point dribbling in your own half. All that ‘flick and roll of the studs’, I’m not an advocate of that. A lot of young players see it on YouTube and think it’s amazing but I don’t like it.”

So, according to Frank Lampard is another player who can shine tomorrow at Wembley. “If the right Eden Hazard turns up he can be the match-winner.” the Blues legend said.

England manager Gareth Southgate revealed Chelsea captain Gary Cahill didn’t answer the phone when he called him and he has to find a different way to tell him he has been included in the list of 23 players who will take part to Russia 2018 World Cup.

He didn’t pick up at first”, Southgate told Metro“and then I left him a message saying, “Look, I don’t only call when it’s bad news” I had left him out of the squad in March and I had a little bet with myself that if I called he wouldn’t pick up”.

However, Southgate wanted to give Cahill the good news as he believes the Blues defender can be useful during England’s campaign in Russia this summer: “He looks happier in himself and happier in his game”, the England boss went on, “so that was nice to be able to be at least let him know that the reason for the call was a good one”.
