The former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba who won the Premier League with Chelsea this season is looking to continue his career for a little bit somewhere else.

As many known players such as Lampard, Villa, Henry head to the US to finish their career, it looks like Drogba wants something different as he’s just turned down a move to Orlando according to some reports coming from the US.

The Florida Major league soccer club Orlando, had hoped to link him with former AC Milan player Kaka but Drogba turned down the offer as he seeks to go somewhere else.

Chelsea have joined the chase to sign Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel, according to reports from shoot.com.

The Zenit St. Petersburg midfielder is also wanted by Manchester United and Juventus, and is keen on a move away from the Russian club this summer.

However, the 26-year old is reportedly in “advanced negotiations” with the Serie A side.

Despite this, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho are said to be closely monitoring the player’s situation. Witsel is seen as a perfect addition to both of their central midfields.

Witsel made 42 appearances in all competitions for Andre Villas-Boas’ side last season, scoring six goals. He moved to the club from Benfica in 2012 for £35 million. He has also played for Standard Liege in Belgium and has made 57 appearances for the Belgian national side.

New Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao has spoken of how his faith in God has helped through his recent bad form.

The Colombian arrives at Stamford Bridge from French side Monaco after a disappointing season at fellow Premier League side Manchester United, in which he scored just four league goals.

With the former Atletico Madrid striker still recovering from a knee injury which ruled him out of last year’s World Cup, he has revealed the one influence that has seen him through: God.

“We have the opportunity to make a difference and show others what Christ has done in our lives. Which He no doubt wants to do in the lives of others.

“I think people have high expectations of me and of similar players,” he says. “But I already carry an expectation within me to score goals, the pressure always comes from inside.”

The 29-year old’s poor form led to widespread criticism from many in England, from fans to press alike. But Falcao has said that his relationship with God helps him to deflect the pressure:

“We can have everything, but if we’re not satisfied spiritually, then it’s as if we had nothing and we feel empty.

“With Jesus Christ, we can be assured that He will never leave us. He’ll always be there. This is something that I have experienced in my own life through His faithfulness and love and through Him showing me that He paid a price for our lives – which was that of His Son, Jesus.”

With God being a focal point of his life, Falcao has said he wants to be a living example and testament as to how we should live our lives for God.

He said: “I would like others to see what God can do in the life of a man who has accepted Jesus Christ into his heart.

“I want others to see the power of God at work in my life and recognize that this is possible for them too.”

MOHAMED SALAH

Juventus have joined the chase to sign Chelsea midfielder Mohamed Salah, according to ForzaItalianFootball.

The Egyptian signed for Chelsea in January 2014 from Swiss side FC Basel. But, after failing to make an impact on Jose Mourinho’s starting XI, he spent the second half of season on loan at  Italian side Fiorentina, with Juan Cuadrado going the other way.

However, Salah was hugely impressive after making his debut in February, scoring nine goals and grabbing six assists in 26 appearances in all competitions.

That has since led to a host of Italian teams registering their interest in the 23-year old winger. This includes Fiorentina, Inter Milan, Roma and now Juventus.

Gazzetta TV are reporting Juve, as well as others, are monitoring the situation.

However, Salah could continue his time in Tuscany as an 18-month loan deal was agreed between Fiorentina and Chelsea in January.

Fiorentina would have to spend another €1 million to keep Salah at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, before splashing out the agreed buy-out clause of €18 million next summer.

Salah can veto any move if he wishes.

It is thought that the versatile midfielder is weighing up his options, given Fiorentina recently sacked coach Vincenzo Montella and a successor is yet to be appointed.

Chelsea will tomorrow find out what their season will look like as the Premier League fixtures for the 2015-16 season are announced at 9am GMT.

And, we will bring you the official fixture list as soon as it’s released.

The 2014-15 Champions will discover when they will face potential title challengers such as Manchester City and Manchester United, and Premier League newcomers Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich.

The new top-flight campaign, which starts a week earlier than usual this year on Saturday 8th August, will however not feature QPR, Hull or Burnley, who were all relegated last year.

The fixtures in past seasons give little away as to whether Chelsea will start their season at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues starting away in 2012, at home in 2013 and away again at the start of last season. It has been vice versa for the final games.

According to the Daily Telegraph , Chelsea has joined the race for the Lyon defender Samuel Umtiti. Also Liverpool and Arsenal are keen on singing the winger but it’s Jose Mourinho who has an ace up its sleeve.

21-year-old defender is regarded by Jose Mourinho as a potential successor of Filipe Luis. But the French player attracted also the attention of Liverpool and Arsenal, both clubs are ready to start the battle for the signature of the footballer.

Due to the fact that Lyon is  interested in taking Loic Remy to Stade de Gerland, Jose Mourinho may propose an exchange of the players. And in this way Chelsea can set itself on pole position for the French defender.

Samuel Utiti started his career in Lyon Youth Club, then in 2010 he joined Lyon B. In 21 appearances he scored no goal. In 2012 he got promoted to the Lyon’s first team where in 100 matches scored two goals.
