Antoinio Rudiger is interested in a move to Chelsea but has not decided upon a transfer anywhere, according to his agent Sahr Senesie.

Stuttgart’s  Rudiger is the subject of much interest from inside and outside of his native Germany, and Chelsea are adamant that he can be the long term replacement for John Terry. Chelsea’s main opponent for Rudiger’s services appear to be Bundesliga club Wolfsburg.

Speaking to the Stuttgarter Nachrichten, Senesie said:

“Antonio finds Wolfsburg very interesting, but that also applies to Chelsea. Nothing has been signed, though.”

Officials at Chelsea believe Rudiger could be the perfect centre-back partner for Kurt Zouma.

Arda Turan will decide what his next club will be by the end of this weekend, according to reports in Turkey.

The Atletico Madrid midfielder will meet his agent this weekend in a bid to resolve the transfer saga. Turan decided some time ago that he will not remain in the Spanish capital, and has hinted that he wishes to join a club in the Premiership, prompting a struggle between Chelsea and Manchester United for his signature.

The current Premiership champions and 20 time English league winners have been joined by PSG and Barcelona in the race to sign the man who was one of Atletico’s most important players during the club’s ascension to the top of Spanish football, and close to the peak of the European game.

Chelsea are the bookmakers favourites to sign the Turk, and his future should become clearer over the next few days.

Falcao joins Chelsea on loan from Monaco

Radamel Falcao will earn less than half what he was paid last season following his move to Chelsea yesterday, according to his reports in England and France. 

The Colombian has signed on a season long loan from Monaco after a poor campaign at Manchester United in which he struggled for form. Manchester United paid his Monaco salary in full throughout the campaign- believed to be £265,000 a week.

Chelsea have been able to negotiate a wage packet of only £130,000 a week for the former Atletico Madrid and Porto striker. The deal was apparently dependent upon how much Falcao’s salary the Premiership champions would pay, and that they have been able to agree upon such a relatively paltry amount is to the club’s credit.

Chelsea have become renowned in recent years for their use of the transfer market which has the team improve year-upon-year at the same time as making a profit for the club.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp commented latest Chelsea signing Radamel Falcao on the English network.

According to the former Liverpool player, Falcao will be a second choice in the squad:

He’s going to find himself on the bench an awful lot next year.

I watched Radamel Falcao in his Atletico Madrid days and he was one of the best centre forwards I think I’ve ever seen.

Now he’s gone to Chelsea and probably what Chelsea need is a striker that’s going to be happy not to play, and maybe have to fill in at times when there is an injury, because you look at the players he’s going to be contending with like Diego Costa, who is going to be first choice.

“I think every Chelsea fan knows that. Then they’ve got Loic Remy.

So what he (Falcao) is saying is ‘I’m happy to come and I’m happy to be part of the squad’.

“I find that a little frustrating, really. I think he’s a better player than that.

It just feels to me that it’s a good move for Chelsea because they’re going to get a striker that’s happy not to play and he might be able to come in and make the impact on the odd occasion, but he’s not going to be starting too many games there if Diego Costa is fit.

Atletico Madrid attacking midfielder Arda Turan was linked to Chelsea in the past weeks, and the Turkish player admitted on his Twitter account that he’s dealing with 3-4 European top clubs.

Spanish media reported that a deal with Barça is closed but until official statements everything can happen, so his former team-mate Diego Costa spent words of appreciation for him, to try to push him to Chelsea:

“It’d be fantastic if [Arda] came to London.  Things are a lot easier with Arda on the pitch: Arda, Filipe and I were together at Atletico and it was a pleasure to play alongside them,” he said praising his Turkish friend.

“In addition, Arda is an incredible person.  He invited us to his house many times and we had a great time together.  I especially liked the Kebab he offered us.  He was a great host, the entire team would go to dinner at his house.

Radamel Falcao has finally officially joined Chelsea team today. For many experts, Jose Mourinho’s decision was very surprising. From the beginning, a lot of people criticize this transfer. Among them is former Chelsea player Tony Cascarino. In his opinion Radamel Falcao will not comeback to the form he had before his injury and Jose Mourinho is just trying to prove to everyone how good coach he is.

Tony Cascarino said today :

“Mourinho will become the ultimate messiah if he pulls that one off and he does well for them.”

“Is this the ego of Mourinho getting the better of him?”

“If Louis van Gaal, who’s a mate of his, doesn’t want to sign Falcao, can you transform him? He couldn’t transform Fernando Torres.”


Diego Costa claimed he has no intention to go back to London to respect his Chelsea contract, while the club arrange a solution for...
