Nathaniel Chalobah made an impact since he joined Chelsea‘s first team last season following a Serie A spell with Napoli.

“I’ve learned every day, - he said – From [N’Golo] Kante, his work rate and ­defensive quality – he just got better on the ball as the season went on – [Nemanja] Matic, for his composure and ­passing, and Cesc’s passing and ability to pick up passes”.

“It’s a very high standard at Chelsea, the club has an amazing academy and produces really top players. It’s just there’s that barrier of getting in there – and then staying in there.”

The England Under-21 star, who will face Germany in the U-21 European Cup semi-final added: “You’re playing for one of the best teams in Europe – they’re now back in the Champions League – and the demand is high on winning”. 

“We won the league and I have competition from European Cup winners, World Cup winners and full internationals. The manager Antonio Conte’s tactical awareness, his passion and desire to win all rub off on everyone.”

Nemanja Matic has already set personal terms ahead of a move to Manchester United, The Sun claimed yesterday.

Antonio Conte became the manager of the year after finding out the best possible starting XI for the Blues: “Chelsea FC holds the record for the highest percentage of minutes played by the 11 most employed footballers: 85.5%” an official statement from CIES Football Observatory read. That’s why:

Matic and Kante were both key players in Conte’s idea of football, which means that Chelsea would have to replace the Serbian star as best as they can. Will Tiemoue Bakayoko fit into the system?

What Chelsea need is stability, solidity, the same balance that Matic showed every game. He’s not a ‘magician’ like Cesc Fabregas, but if Conte preferred to play him alongside Kante it’s for a reason.

We are aware that José Mourinho is a huge fan of the Serbian star, as he wanted him back from Benfica in January 2014. He was named “all-round midfielder” by the Special One, who hopes for a nice and warm reunion at Manchester United now as then.

Chelsea’s board should ponder on a squad without their tallest midfielder, before realizing Nemanja Matic’s slowness was more important than you expected.

Kante, who became everyone’s favourite player following an outstanding season, is the king of midfield. Fabregas is magic, but Matic is Matic.

Mohamed Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma on a £35m move on Thursday, which means that Chelsea will receive £2.3m.

The Blues inserted a sell-on clause when the Egyptian winger left Stamford Bridge heading to Serie A in 2015.

Salah made 11 appearances during his first season with Chelsea, before being loaned to Fiorentina and then sold to AS Roma on a permanent move in June 2015.

Mohamed Salah joins Liverpool from AS Roma on a £39 move, the Premier League outfit have announced the deal.

“I’m very excited to be here. I’m very happy, – Salah told the club’s official website. - I will give 100 per cent and give everything for the club. I really want to win something for this club”.

Chelsea are set to receive a £2.7m bonus from the sale of the Egypt international, who left Stamford Bridge on loan in 2015 before the Blues decided to sell him permanently last August for £12m.

Salah becomes Liverpool’s most expensive signing in their history as Andy Carroll was paid £35m in 2011.

“A substantial offer has arrived for Alex Sandro” Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta confirmed yesterday evening.

“We have no intention of selling anyone, but if a player decides to leave as has happened in previous years, then at the end of the day he has to go because we don’t keep anyone against their will” he added.

It is understood Chelsea manager Antonio Conte wants to sign the Juventus wing-back and reportedly placed a £50m bid. The Blues and Alex Sandro himself have already set personal terms, as the Brazilian star is willing to join Chelsea moving to the Premier League this summer.

Terry’s contract runs out at the end of June, this is the reason why the English star came back training with the Blues’ shirt.
