The fans of Chelsea football club are plotting a walk-out during their last 2 games of the Premier League season in protest to the non-renewal of captain John Terry‘s contract.

Terry‘s Chelsea career came to the worst possible ending after seeing the red card in stoppage time in the game with Sunderland at the weekend. Therefore, Terry will miss his own farewell party if Chelsea insist on letting the Blues legend leave.

The Chelsea supporters are hoping that the protest will hit home to the directors of the club showing them how much the fans think of the former England international and how much they believe he deserves a contract extension.

John Terry might have played his last game for Chelsea after he was sent off against Sunderland last Saturday. However, Blues captain Terry is ready to agree a £12m per year deal in the Chinese Super League, according to The Sun.

Also former Chelsea man Dan Petrescu, currently manager at Jiangsu Suning, is likely to be interested in his signature this summer.

With a transfer move to Chinese Super League John Terry would also be joining Demba Ba, Ramires and Didier Drogba.

Chelsea are set to give youngster Tammy Abraham his chance in the first-team in the last 2 games of this years campaign.

Abraham has been training with the senior squad this week in preparation for the mid-week game against Liverpool and the final game of the season against Leicester. The 18-year-old striker was part of the youth team that won the UEFA Youth League and finished as the competitions second highest scorer, netting 8 times in 9 games.

After the 3-2 defeat to Sunderland, the Blues are mathematically only able to finish as high as 9th but still as low as 13th, so manager Guus Hiddink is willing to give an opportunity to Abraham to show his talent in the Premier League.

Chelsea loanee Christian Atsu is eager to make his loan to Malaga a permanent move, according to Marca.

The Ghanaian international joined the Spanish side in January after struggling to feature regularly at Stamford Bridge.

The 24-year-old has admitted he is wide open to stay if posssible: “The decision does not depend on me, so I have to wait.” Atsu told Marca.

“I have not received any offers from Malaga yet. I have a contract with Chelsea but I think everything is possible in football. However, I am aware that is not my decision. I am very happy here because I’m living a very positive experience.”

“The truth is that I realised very quickly that the decision to come here was right.”

Chelsea are reportedly lining up a bid for Roma stars Radja Nainggolan and Miralem Pjanic.

The Belgium international has been heavily linked with a £32m move to Stamford Bridge and incoming Blues manager Antonio Conte is expected to be a Bosnia international’s great admirer.

Anyway, according to Roma’s president James Pallotta, they both won’t be sold: “I have already said we won’t sell Nainggolan and Pjanic,” 

“I want to see them still with a Roma jersey.”

Pjanic, 26-year-old, said: “As for my future, we close the championship. I repeat, I’m fine and I have two years on my contract but in football you do not know never.”

Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel told Chelseafc.com: “We started the game well and for the first 30 to 35 minutes we had control and we were playing well, we were creating chances, moving the ball quickly and players wanted to get involved.”

“In the second half we came out and we wanted to carry on where left off but we didn’t kill the game when we had the chances to do it. Then Ivanovic went down, the referee didn’t blow the whistle, we stopped a little and they scored the second goal. From then, they had some momentum, they built on that and got the third goal.”

Anyway the Nigeria international believes Chelsea should have won the game: “Their fans were on top of them and supporting them, and rightly so because they have to save their Premier League status” – Mikel said – “They came out to fight and play. But if we killed the game when we had the chances and opportunities I don’t think they would have come back into the game.”

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic spoke about John Terry’s second yellow card at Stadium of Light: “Of course, he is not happy we lost.” he said after the 3-2 away defeat.

“But we know what he has done for this club and what he has won. All of us in the team wish him all the best for the future and of course this is not a good way to finish in a club but we don’t forget what he won and what he has already done.”

John Terry will probably suffer the consequences with a two-match suspension and then he may have played his final game for Blues against Sunderland.

Cesc Fabregas has turned down a bumper offer from China, according to the Sun on Sunday.

The Chelsea star was offered a contract around £220,000 a week after tax, but it is understood he wants to stay with Blues also next season under incoming manager Antonio Conte.

Also Fabregas’ teammate Oscar has reportedly been targeted by Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning as they offered a £57m deal and seemed desperate to get the Brazil international signature.



French midfielder N'Golo Kante is aware the importance of winning the Europa League for Chelsea: "We can make the season beautiful by winning the Europa League,” said Kante. “That’s the only...
