According to Daily Mirror, Charlie Austin has been warned off a move to Chelsea. And the person who gave him this ridiculous advice was the former QPR and Tottenham coach Harry Redknapp.

Harry Redknapp is strongly convinced that if Charlie Austin will join Chelsea he will be sentenced on bench for nearly whole the season. Former Tottenham coach has no doubts that at the moment, nobody is able to replace Diego Costa.
Charlie Austin since some weeks has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea. However, Harry Redknapp advises him to join Newcastle instead of the Blues.
He told Daily Mirror:

“A move to Newcastle would be the best one for Charlie Austin.”

“He’s rumoured to be on Chelsea’s radar as well but no disrespect to him he won’t make their starting line-up. They only play one up front and he’s not going to replace Diego Costa.”

“He’s 25 and he’s scored some good goals and I think Newcastle would be a good move for him and a good challenge.”

“He’s a good lad and knows Steve McClaren from when Steve was at QPR and I reckon he’ll do well at Newcastle.”

Well, nobody has a doubt that Austin will not replace Diego Costa but he would be able to learn from the best if he will decide to join the Blues.

Chelsea starlet Nathaniel Chalobah is convinced that, together with Ruben Loftus-Cheek,Dominic Solanke and the other young players the Blues are able to replicate Manchester United’s famous ‘Class of 92′.

David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs,  Nicky Butt and the Neville brothers were part of so-called ”Class of 92”. All of them started their career in Manchester’s United Youth Club and for all of them a list of the countless trophies begins with the 1992 FA Youth Cup-winning. Only then came the time for success in the senior league.

Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is convinced that Chelsea Youth Club Chelsea is able to create their own ,,Class of 92”. Chelsea starlets reached the final of FA Youth Cup for the last four seasons – winning on three occasions.  That is why young player has the right to look to the future ambitiously.

Chalobah told the Telegraph :

“I have seen Ruben play this season and I am honestly so proud. It is so good to see players coming through and to see the likes of Dom Solanke and Izzy Brown.

“You look at that and say ‘Wow, it is possible’. I am so chuffed for Ruben and so happy for him that he had a chance to play. Next year I hope he kicks on.”

“It’s a big club and United are a big club as well and if they were able to do that I don’t see why Chelsea couldn’t. It’s about the right timing, being in the right place and getting the opportunity.”

Due to the fact that Chalobah since his arrival to Chelsea senior team in 2012 he was always loaned out he was asked about his future plans. He said :

“I’ve spoken to my people and Chelsea. I am not too sure what is happening yet. I’m trying to focus on this tournament, do my level best to get this out of the way and then obviously focus on that. I have told people not to tell me about rumours.”

“Definitely. I’ve been there for 10 years now. I’d love to say I came through and played however-many games as a Chelsea player. It is still important to be learning, still important to be playing games. I have been doing that the last few years so I can’t really complain too much.”

He was asked if he regrets that he still didnt make a debut for Chelsea but the young player assured that he doesn’t hold anything against Mourinho.

“I have nothing bad to say about the manager,”

“It is all about opportunities and I respect his decisions. He sees it out there every day and he has decided where he stands. For me it is about trying to improve as much as I can and trying to kick on.”

“It can be difficult at times. You do have difficult steps along the way. I have been on loan at Burnley and didn’t play as much as I would have wanted to but I take a lot of experience out of that … you open your eyes to a lot of things.”

“You learn to deal with going away and stuff like that. I can’t complain.”

His current wage is £65,000 a week, but as Jose Mourinho seems to be really keen on prolongation of the contract with Ramires, he may be offer new, better conditions.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has disapproves once again of the way Jose Mourinho conducts himself, saying that the Chelsea boss takes all the glory for his team’s success. 

Pellegrini, who lost his Premiership title to Mourinho last season as Chelsea won the league by leading August until May, was critical of the Portuguese last season and his style of football found himself failing in the mind games that are typical in the Premiership title race.

The Chilean is under pressure after Man City let go of the title so easily, and he probably would be replaced had Jurgen Klopp or Carlo Ancelotti, who both left Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid respectively at the end of last season, opted to take seasons off.

Speaking to Chilean newspaper El Mercurio, Pellegrini said this:

“When he wins, Mourinho wants to take credit for everything. I don’t do that. When I won the Premier League, I didn’t say a word.

“I don’t have any problem with him, he’s not my enemy and there isn’t any conflict with him but I differ from Mourinho on all fronts. I have no interest in analysing him as a person.”

The future of Chelsea winger Mohammed Salah will become known today as Fiorentina meet the Egypt international’s representatives, according to reports in Italy. 

Salah spent the second half of last season on loan at the Serie A club after Juan Cuadrado went the other way. Fiorentina want to make the deal permanent and could do for €16 million, but the former Basel winger prefers a move to Inter Milan, who are also interested but unwilling to pay such a high price. The fee for Salah will increase to €20 million should Fiorentina turn down the chance to sign him.

ChelseaNews24  have reported this morning that Chelsea might reject any deal from Fiorentina or Inter and use Salah as a way of persuading Atletico Madrid to sell Antoine Griezmann. Salah’s Chelsea career is certainly over and it appears that his future will become a lot clearer by the end of today.

Chelsea will have to pay £8 million and make Victor Moses’ loan to Stoke City permanent in order to bring in goalkeeper Asmir Begovic as replacement for Petr Cech.

Cech, 33, will join Arsenal for £11 million subject to a medical and the transfer could go through as soon as the end of the week. ChelseaNews24 reported on the 17th June that Chelsea were not willing to let Cech go until a suitable replacement had been found.

The Premiership champions have earmarked Stoke City ‘keeper Begovic to be that replacement but have as of yet been unable to agree a price with the Potters. There is the possibility that the Bosnia and Hezogovina international could reject any move to Stamford Bridge due to a lack of playing time- Thibaus Courtois is unlikely to be pushed out as Chelsea’s first choice goalkeeper any time soon. Begovic did indeed turn down a move to Chelsea in 2010 for similar reasons.

Stoke City have put a price of £8 million on Begovic and want Victor Moses, who spent last season on loan at the Britannia Stadium, having done the same at Liverpool the season before, to be made permanent free of charge.
