“At the moment I’m good in England…I play in one of the best teams, but yes, the Spanish League is special,” he said in an interview with Spanish outlet Marca.

Yesterday we reported you the reason why, according to former Premier League player Joey Barton, Ross Barkley didn’t join Chelsea on transfer window deadline day in the past week: the ex midfielder claimed that Antonio Conte switched his phone off and Barkley couldn’t speak to him before completing the move to Stamford Bridge.

Today The Times reveals that it was Chelsea itself to leave the Italian manager out of negotiation, after he failed to convince Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain a few days before, as the winger eventually joined Liverpool after the Blues already agreed a fee with Arsenal.

This is what one of the main English newspapers writes about that:

“The Times has learnt that Chelsea decided to keep the head coach away from transfer negotiations after his unsuccessful talks with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain the same week, which ended with the Arsenal midfielder opting to join Liverpool.”

This could mean the club has lost his confidence and trust in Conte, who doesn’t feel trust in him despite an improvement of his deal during the summer.

Joey Barton claims he knows the real reason why Everton midfielder Ross Barkley didn’t join Chelsea on transfer window deadline day.

According to the former midfielder the Toffees star wasn’t able to complete a move to Stamford Bridge for Antonio Conte: the Italian manager switched his mobile phone off and Barkley couldn’t get in contact with him, an episode that demotivated him.

“I heard a really interesting thing about what happened with the Ross Barkley transfer. Conte turned his phone off and Barkley’s representatives were trying to contact him,” Barton revealed.

“He wanted to say: ‘Look, where am I going to play’, and Conte turned his phone off. That is why Barkley got cold feet and never signed.

“He thought: ‘Well, if the manager isn’t answering the phone to me he clearly doesn’t want me’, and that is why he went back to Everton.”

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is back from his broken ankle injury in this international break: he played 90′ in two World Cup 2018 qualifiers with Belgium and scored a goal against Gibraltar in last week 9-0 win.

The Belgian player is convinced this season won’t be easy, as Chelsea are defending their Premier League title but are also trying to do their best in the Champions League, a competition that Hazard would like to win soon with the Blues:

“I think this year will be no different from the previous years, in the sense that every year it is difficult, especially when you play in many competitions.

“This year we have the Champions League as well and it is not easy to succeed in multiple competitions. But we will do our best and we have got depth in our squad so sometimes maybe one or two players can rest so they are 110 per cent for the next competition

“We just want to win as many trophies as possible, for me personally I haven’t won the Champions League so maybe that one would be a little bit more special, but I would prefer us to win everything.”

“I would like to see him back, but I do not make the decisions. I hope we can find a solution and see him on the field soon.”

About Alvaro Morata: “He is still very young, but he has won many titles with Juve and Madrid, so he has a lot of experience.
