Speaking to the official club website Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata shared his first impressions about the impact with the English football.

The former Real Madrid forward already scored 3 goals and gave 2 assists in his 4 appearances for the West London side:

“At the moment, I’ve only scored and assisted with my head for Chelsea, so I hope to use my feet as well soon!

“It’s true that English football is different to Italy and Spain. You don’t have much time to calm down, or relax, because all the time the ball is on fire.

“You need to be in good condition to play here and approach every match with a good mentality.”

Inter defender Jeison Murillo is keen to stay at the Milan side also for next season, snubbing approaches by Chelsea and Manchester United, who were trying to sign the centre-back that last summer was voted as the best youngster of the Copa America.

“I want to stay at Inter, the Colombian told Rai Sport after Inter’s 3-1 win over Udinese.

I am an Inter player and am not thinking about the future right now. Coming to Serie A has really helped me improve, although it was difficult at first to adapt to a very tactical and physical league.”

Inter are still hoping in a third place spot that would allow them to play in the next Champions League, even if it’s really difficult with a possible -7 gap from Roma, that are playing Napoli tomorrow night:

Udinese played very well, but we also did our best to get the victory and are happy to have taken home the three points,” Murillo concluded.

Chelsea manager José Mourinho rejected a potential return to Real Madrid, according to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague.

Barcelona just secured yesterday their fifth Liga title in the last seven years, this means that Real Madrid will finish the season having won the Spanish and European Supercup, the World Clubs Tournament Cup, but no major titles, the ones that matter for the fans and for the real glory, after they were ruled out by the Champions League by Juventus, who went to final with Luis Enrique’s side- being out of the Spanish Cup final too.

Barcelona can win another incredible treble after 2009, since they will play Copa del Rey final too, this time against Athletic Bilbao, on May 31.

The Real Madrid policy has always been “When you don’t win, sack the manager” so now Carlo Ancelotti’s future is very uncertain, despite his success in the Champions League and Copa del Rey last year.

The ex Chelsea boss is supposed to have already an agreement with Manchester City, but his adventure at Real Madrid can continue if Perez won’t find a good substitute.

José Mourinho broke his contract with Real Madrid on mutual agreement after a very difficult 2012-2013 season, and came back to Chelsea, where he always claims he wants to stay for many years, at least other four or, anyway, until Abramovich will decide he’s not the Chelsea manager anymore.

Here is what Balague claimed about Real Madrid situation:

“The idea is that Real now look for another coach – that is what normally happens when Real Madrid do not win” he told to Sky Sports program Revista de La Liga after Barcelona’s triumph.

Real have spoken to Julen Lopetegui at Porto, to Jurgen Klopp, to Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho.

They have already spoken to those four to see if they would be interested in coaching Real Madrid. They have spoken to Jose Mourinho – he said no to them, of course.

“Out of those four, Rafa is favoured by some but not others. Mourinho is favoured by some and not by others and Lopetegui is deemed as something for the future, but they have sounded out all of them.

“Klopp isn’t an automatic yes for the job, and it may be a little bit too early for Zinedine Zidane.

“There was a plan at the beginning of the season, but Real Madrid Castilla haven’t been doing too well so, again, there is doubt”

The problem Florentino Perez is facing is that he’s not in love with anybody”

“He was in love with Mourinho when he brought him to the club, and he has loved other appointments”

“However, at the moment, there is not a clear candidate to replace Ancelotti and he could stay.

“But if you tell Ancelotti, ‘you’re going to stay because there is nobody else,’ what does that tell you about his authority next season?”

It seems it will be a real hot summer in the Bernabéu area but Jose, we’re sure, won’t come back there.





French midfielder N'Golo Kante is aware the importance of winning the Europa League for Chelsea: "We can make the season beautiful by winning the Europa League,” said Kante. “That’s the only...
