According to Daily Mirror, Chelsea are keen on signing Tottenham’s left-back Danny Rose. It is said that, the Blues are ready to pay £15m for the player.

Due to the fact, that Baba Rahman’s transfer is still not completed, Jose Mourinho is looking for an alternative. According to the rumours, Chelsea have asked Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy to name the price for their left-back Danny Rose.

It is believed, that the Blues are willing to pay around £15m for the English player, as Jose Mourinho wants to sign a left-back before the start of the season on Saturday.

However, if Tottenham refuse to sell their player, Chelsea will agree to pay £17m for the Ghanian international, Baba Rahman.

Mourinho himself, admitted few days ago, that the Blues are urgently looking for a defender:

”We cannot go to the Premier League with five defenders.”

“That’s our weakness. The quality is good, but the numbers are not enough.”

Former Manchester United centre-back, Rio Ferdinand has urged John Stones to reject Chelsea in order to join the Red Devils.

Jose Mourinho considers Stones a natural successor to John Terry, that is why Chelsea have already made two money bids for the English defender. But, Everton have rejected all of them saying, that Stones will not leave the Goodison Park.

While today, former Manchester United player has decided to comment on Stones situation. In Ferdinand’s opinion, the 21-year-old defender should reject Chelsea without any hesitation. He is convinced that if Stones joins the Blues he will spend all the season on the bench. Therefore, he advised him to sign for Manchester United instead of Chelsea.

Ferdinand said:

“If he goes to Man United, he plays every week so that’s the right club for him,”

“If he goes to Chelsea, he’s not playing every week. He’s at that stage of his development where he wants to play every week. If you say to any young footballer to leave a club to sit on the bench, you’ve got to be a lunatic. You have to be.”

Martinez told the Liverpool Echo :

“We feel that we are a big club. You’re going to get clubs that are working with big budgets because they have been working in the Champions League but we are a club with nine league titles, the history and you seen today we celebrated a special memory.”

“We are a big club. What we want is to build and what we want to do is concentrate on the future and we are not a selling club by all means. I don’t see anything apart from I love the players I have in the squad and I understand others keep an eye on it and that is a healthy sign.”

“The current situation with John is as you would expect. He is one of the most talented centre backs in European football not just in England and we are really, really feel we have a special footballer with us.”

“We have a group of young players with the potential to be as good as they can and I think he is one of those.”

Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle has revealed that he was surprised to see Salah’s arrival to Rome while his contractual situation still has not been resolved.

During the post-match conference after Fiorentina’s victory over Barcelona in a preseason friendly on Sunday, Viola’s president has criticised Giallorossi for inviting Salah to Rome.

Della Valle told La Repubblica :

“It wasn’t a nice thing to see Salah arrive in Rome,”

“He’s not been presented officially, even if he effectively has been. Maybe Roma could have avoided all of this.”

“Solicitors are working on the issue — ours, his and Chelsea’s. We’re trying to ensure a contract is respected, and then we’ll see. We don’t like arguing with anybody and we haven’t said either ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to Salah joining Roma, but it’s a very delicate subject and I can’t say too much about it.”

“They may be convinced about it in other cities, but all we say is that we’ve got a contract in our hands. If they’re happy, let them be happy. The player left here convinced by his agent and I’m the first to be disappointed by the way this whole issue has evolved.”

“When Salah arrived here, he was practically unknown. But I’ve got to think about the future now and open up a new cycle.”

Salah remains in Rome, waiting for technical issues to be resolved so that he can join AS Roma on a loan from Chelsea. However, Della Valle has stated that Fiorentina didn’t say the last word regarding the Egyptian winger.
