Josh has been around since he was 7 years old and was given his debut in the Champions League aged 17, when he worked under Carlo Ancelloti, but it looks like it is the end of a chapter for him.

McEachran seemed to have found his feet on loan at Vitesse, and it looked like he would be given regular time on the pitch, however things don’t seem to go his way as he won’t be returning to Arnham according to his manager because Chelsea are planning to sell him.

As no other club, have expressed their interest, it seems like Josh could have go at a Championship side..

Vitesse use their relationship with Chelsea to loan numerous young starlets from the Premier League. The Dutch club is also interested in loaning midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, but this transfer seems impossible to happen.

After his disastrous performance in Australia, Ruben Loftus-Cheek he was not a favorite of Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese coach expressed his disappointment at the attitude of the young footballer. However, after John Terry promised to talk with the midfielder, the situation normalized.

Mourinho’s words has motivated the young player who, is doing really well in England U-21 national team. That is why Vitesse coach, Peter Bosz is strongly convinced that Jose Mourinho will not agree on Loftus-Cheek loan.

Peter Bosz, Vitesse coach told De Telegraaf :

”Chelsea know what they do for us and they are satisfied with the development that the boys have made with ​​us”

“Chelsea knows what they have for us and they are satisfied with the development that the boys have made with us. We know what we want, but we are also dependent on what happens at Chelsea. For example we wanted to get Ruben Loftus-Cheek here, but then the boy suddenly starts playing at Chelsea and we can’t,”

Chelsea Football Club made an official statement about Petr Cech transfer to Arsenal.

Chelsea has officially agreed terms for the permanent transfer of Petr Cech. Due to this fact, the club decided to make a special statement about it.

During his 11 years at Stamford Bridge the goalkeeper became a Chelsea icon, winning four Premier League trophies, four FA Cups, three League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League, when his heroics in the penalty shootout helped us lift Europe’s greatest club prize.

He signed for Chelsea from Rennes in 2004 and made his Blues debut as a 22-year-old.

The Czech international went on to establish himself as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper for a decade, setting Premier League records for the longest period without conceding a goal (between December 2004 and March 2005) and the fewest goals conceded in a season that same campaign, the latter of which still stands.

With 494 games to his credit he holds the record for the most Chelsea appearances by a foreign player.

His 228 clean sheets surpassed another club legend Peter Bonetti’s long-standing club record.

Chelsea Football Club thanks Petr for his fantastic service over the past 11 years, and in particular for his immense contribution to our success in that time.

Sporting Kansas City is interested in signing Chelsea winger, Marko Marin. According to the London Evening Standard, Sporting chief executive Robb Heineman wants to recruit the player.

Sporting Kansas City is an American team that is presently a member of the Western Conference of Major League Soccer (MLS). The chief executive of Kansas City would like to give Marin a chance and is planning to sign the German midfielder.

Heineman said:

“One of (the targets) is Marko Marin, a Chelsea player and he’s a guy that we think can play both wings and the attacking midfielder role, and that’s what we’re looking for, someone to bring some punch to the final third.”

Marko Marin joined Chelsea in 2012 from Werder Brema for £7m. He signed a five-year contract with the Blues and was given the number 21 shirt. He made his debut on 18 June 2013 in a pre-season friendly against Seattle Sounders FC. However he failed to keep position on the team, that is why he was continuously loan out.

Season 2013/2014 he joined Sevilla for a season-long loan. He made 18 appearances and scored no goal. The year after he joined Fiorentina also for a season-long loan, but he never debuted on team. Last year he spent in Anderlecht where he played in six matches.

Marin has two years left on his contract with the Blues but according to the rumours, Jose Mourinho may agree on another loan or even will accept a permanent transfer for the player.

PETR CECH ARSENAL
Chelsea legend joined Arsenal for a £11m fee

One of Chelsea’s finest players has swapped west London for north, Blue for Red and celebrating the Premiership title for equally exuberant displays of joy for winning the FA Cup.

In short, Petr Cech is leaving Chelsea to join Arsenal, and it is the latest in a pattern of first team players that are held in the highest esteem joining what appears to be a direct rival to the detriment of the club.

Juan Mata left for Manchester United in 2013 for almost £40 million, Frank Lampard was allowed to leave under the assumption he was taking up semi-retirement in America only to join Manchester City for a season, and now Cech, Chelsea’s finest ever goalkeeper, and the keeper of numerous records, is leaving the club with one season still left on his contract for approximately £11 million.

The general opinion has thus far been one of puzzlement, especially from Chelsea fans, as to why Jose Mourinho is allowing such a quality player to once again exit Stamford Bridge to ply his trade at a direct rival for the title. The truth is that he is applying the same policy that allowed the other two to be bought to the general betterment of the club they were leaving.

Mata’s exit gave the club the funds to buy Nemanja Matic, who performed with distinction for the majority of last season and has made himself critical in the defensive midfield position. It also gave the side balance as it allowed Oscar and Eden Hazard to define their roles in the side, the latter with great results.

Frank Lampard, Chelsea’s record goalscorer, also left and allowed Chelsea to improve. Despite scoring the late equaliser at the Ethihad Stadium in September and denying Chelsea a win over Manchester City, Chelsea’s form in that part of the season, based largely on the midfield axis of Matic, Fabregas (who replaced Lampard in the centre) and Hazard is what ultimately won them the league title.

Manchester City laboured for much of the season and Manchester United were left with an embarrassing imbalanced having packed their side with attacking midfielders. Neither benefitted greatly from the services of two former Chelsea players, and the end result of Arsenal buying Petr Cech may well be similar.

At the age of 33, Petr Cech is getting closer to the end of his career. It is true that goalkeepers can play for longer at the highest level of European football- look at Gianluigi Buffon who at the age 37 led Juventus to the Champions League final, but what is certain is that he will not improve.

The decision to let him leave would be stupid were Thibaus Courtois, arguably the best goalkeeper in the world and ten years Cech’s junior, not in the Chelsea first team at present. It would also be the wrong decision were Chelsea letting him go for nothing at the end of next season. As it is, the club will get almost £11 million, and that money could go towards the potential signing of Antoinne Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, who Chelsea are hoping to sign ahead of PSG, and who could give the team the added attacking dimension that it lacked in the Champions League last season. Moreover, it would be a bad decision were Chelsea not letting him go to a club that finished last season 12 points behind them, or one that was readily able to strengthen in other areas that might make them more of a threat to Jose Mourinho’s side next season.

Chelsea’s dominance off the pitch and on it has been borne out of its skill in the transfer market after 2012. Cech’s departure, having been done for the right money, and should, if said money be used wisely, be another example of that.

PETR CECH ARSENAL CONTRACT
Cech signed a deal at Arsenal late last month

Petr Cech just posted a picture on his Facebook account while signing new contract with Arsenal.

The Chelsea legend added this note:

Transfer: after 11 years from Chelsea to Arsenal
I’m really excited about joining Arsenal Football Club and can’t wait to join up for pre-season. I have the same commitment to football, the same motivation and the same hunger for success as I had at the beginning of my career, and I love the challenges brought by the top quality players you face while playing the Premier League. When Arsène Wenger spoke to me about his ambitions for this club, and how he saw me as part of this team, the decision was clear.

JOHN STONES

Chelsea will make a bid for Everton’s John Stones after being convinced the Englishman is the long term replacement for John Terry, according to the Evening Standard. 

Chelsea turning to Stones has come about after new Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez said there is no chance Raphael Varane, a Chelsea target for several months, leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 21-year-old has been of interest to Chelsea for some time, but the general opinion was that the club would give him one more season of regular football at Everton before any prospective bid is made, particularly as John Terry and Gary Cahill won the Premiership playing together last season.

Terry’s age, along with Varane staying in Madrid and Chelsea’s failure to progress beyond the second round of the Champions League, a campaign in which they conceded several stupid goals, have made the club think again.  Terry, 34, spoke glowingly of Stones to talkSport last week.

The former England captain said:

“I have seen a lot of games and I am a big fan of his. He pulls wide of the box and wants the ball and for a young defender to do that in the Premier League takes some guts.

“He is exceptional with both feet, he is a ball-playing centre half which you need to be these days.

“He is extremely confident. He looks to play from the back and that can only be good for English football that the likes of him are coming through. He is definitely one I have been impressed by.”

Everton have placed a value of £20 million on John Stones.

Chelsea are in pole position to sign Juventus full-back Kwadwo Asamoah, but face competition from Arsenal, according to reports in Italy today.

Chelsea are in need of a left-back with the sale of Filipe Luis, probably back to Atletico Madrid, imminent. ChelseaNews24 have reported in recent days that the English champions might use the Brazil international as part of a deal to sign either Antoinne Griezmann or Arda Turan from the Atletico, but should he leave it would leave a space free on Chelsea’s defensive left.

Cesar Azpilicueta played with distinction in that position for much of last season; the Spain international was the main reason Luis featured so little in Jose Mourinho’s side. Not being naturally left-footed means that he could sometimes find himself exposed, the home game with Manchester City being the foremost example, so having a naturally left-footed player on that side would give the team more balance. The signing of Asamoah would also give Jose Mourinho depth at left-back.

Asamoah missed much of last season with a knee injury as Juventus won the league and cup double but just missed out on the Champions League, losing 3-1 to Barcelona. The 26-year-old is also a target for Arsenal; it is almost certain that the Gooners will secure the signing of Chelsea second choice goalkeeper Petr Cech this week.

Inter are really active on this transfer window in order to revamp their squad after three very disappointing seasons.

The Italian giants want to go back to the level history gave them and to become a top team again they already signed Kondongbia from Monaco, Miranda from Atletico Madrid and Jeison Murillo – who was Colombia’s sensation at Copa America- from Granada.

The Italian team was also keen on OM midfielder Giannelli Imbula, but the midfielder- an old Chelsea target- now is set to join Porto.

So Mancini‘s side are putting out feelers for Obi Mikel: the Nigerian midfielder would suit the kind of midfielder that Inter are looking for, adding an important international and top club experience.

Chelsea are keen to sell him and the negotiations have just begun.
