Chelsea captain John Terry has stated today that he is determined to win as much trophies for the club as he can before retiring.

The 34-year-old player is still hungry for success. As he said in the interview, he is determined to add another trophies to his trophy cabinet.

Terry told London Evening Standard:

”This club will keep winning trophies with or without me,”

”But I will keep driving the team on the training ground and on the pitch to keep achieving and keep winning trophies.”

”I was very pleased individually with the way I played last season. When you get to a certain age people say you’re coming to the end and start writing you off.”

”But to be able to still perform at the very top is something I’m very proud of. I couldn’t do it without the help of great players around me and a great manager. I’m doing the right things off the field as well.”

Terry is convinced that the hard work during the pre-season will pay dividends. He is sure that also this season Chelsea will make a stunning start on August 8, the same as a year ago.

”The manager deserves a lot of credit for the work we do in pre-season. He gets everybody ready and sharp.”

”With the signings we made last time we were able to hit the ground running, But players like Eden Hazard and Nemanja Matic were on fire too. It probably took everyone back how we started.”

“Last year, the first game away to Burnley was when I knew. We were looking good in training, but normally it takes five, six, seven matches to get going. That game we went 1-0 down, but we bounced back, the movement and the passing was superb. After then we just seemed to grow and grown and things got even better.

“Whether we play a top side or a small side, the attention to detail is always there. In team meetings, we are told about individual weaknesses and strengths of our opponents, but in the big games we seem to do a little bit more.

“We find a way to break them down, to find their weaknesses and work on that. There is no stone unturned. It is down to us then as players to deliver.”

Some weeks ago, Terry has posted on Instagram a photo of his trophy cabinet. We have to admit that it’s impressive.

Manuel Pellegrini is convinced that money is not important when it comes to sign an important player.

Manchester City coach admits that when it comes to sign a top player, money plays a secondary role for him.

Pellegrini told Express :

“I always say there are four or five important teams, so if you don’t improve every year it’s very difficult.”

“The price is so difficult to see – it depends on the performance of the player in the next years. Every time you need a player the price is very high – not just for City, but for every team.”

“The price is not the most important thing – the most important thing is to choose the player you need.”

Manchester City have spent £49million on Raheem Sterling last week. And Pellegrini decided to say a few words also about this transfer,explaining why he decided to buy him from Liverpool :

“We must continue to have a competitive team,”

“I think that Raheem can play in different positions – he can play as a forward because he has a lot of speed or he can play also on the wing,” he added.

“He’s a very young player so he has a lot of things to improve. I think it’s important for him to have a new challenge in our team where he will play with great players which will improve his game. He will also improve us as a team.

“I think that Raheem has already demonstrated what he can do as a player at Liverpool but he’s just 20 years old so he has a lot of things to improve.

“It will depend how he works over the next few years but I am sure he will be very important in our team, especially for his speed.”

In the new season, Juan Cuadrado will be playing with the number # 11 on the shirt.

When the Colombian stiker arrived in January to Chelsea he picked up the just vacated #23 , the number that belonged earlier to Mark Schwarzer. When Cuadrado was playing at Fiorentina his squad number was #11 and according to his words, it’s his lucky number.

Now when his lucky #11 became available as Didier Drogba hung up his Chelsea boots, he immediately asked for a switch back to his number.  His request was approved by the club.

Juan, make the shirt proud !

Barcelona presidential candidate Josep Maria Bartomeu is convinced that Arda Turan should spend the first half of next season on loan.

The Turkish player joined Barcelona for £24m from Atletico Madrid, but due to Barcelona’s transfer ban he will not be able to play until January.

Since several days there have been rumors that Luis Enrique may send Turan on a loan. It is said that Blaugrana will not allow Turan to join any La Liga rival but is considering other proposals.

Bartomeu told RAC 1 :

“This is a possibility but the final decision must be made by coach Luis Enrique and it must be a purely technical decision,”

It must be a team not playing in the Champions League.”

Before Arda Turan joined Barcelona, he was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea. Maybe Blaugrana will send him on a loan at Stamford Bridge ? We will find out soon.

Mohamed Salah was the hot name in Italian transfer market in the past month: the Egyptian player created a real saga, refusing another loan to Fiorentina, the club where he spent the second part of the last season, impressing with outstanding performances and 10 goals in all the competitions.

It was rumoured that Inter offered him a new deal, trying to get him on loan or negotiating with Chelsea for a permanent deal, so Fiorentina threatened to take the player and Inter to court.

At the end the player came back to his parent club, Chelsea, who will decide on his future, and many people were ready to bet about José Mourinho taking him to pre-season training camp in Canada and tour in the USA, to observe him and verify his progress after the Serie A spell.

But the manager decided not to take him in Montreal and selected players like Victor Moses, who was on loan to Stoke City in the last campaign, or youngsters Chalobah, Clarke-Salte and Ola Aina, with even new signing Kenedy joining them in Montreal, but he didn’t select Salah, that now is officially aside of first team squad and ready to leave Chelsea again.

Salah’s agent is now expected in London to negotiate with Chelsea board about the player future: the Egyptian star is a target Italian giants Roma and Inter, but in the last days also Liverpool entered the “battle” to sign him, an option that will allow him to stay in the Premier League and be more ready for Chelsea in case he will return in the future.
