Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda has ended his loan-spell at Celtic and he is back at Stamford Bridge.

The talented midfielder joined the Scottish Champions during last January transfer window as the two clubs agreed an 18-month deal for Musonda’s loan.

However, the Blues youngster didn’t have many chances to play as explained by Celtic’s manager Brendan Rodgers: “He was a joy to work with, a really good boy”, Rodgers said. “wanted to learn and he’s now at an age where he needs to play week in, week out, and, unfortunately, I couldn’t promise him that.”

BBC pundit Garth Crooks has accused Chelsea manager Antonio Conte of “exceptionally poor judgement” in transfer market, especially in the deal that brought former Blues midfielder Nemanja Matic to Manchester United.

After winning the league last year Chelsea made the surprising decision to sell Serbia international Nemanja Matic in a £40m deal to José Mourinho‘s side.

Matic has already become a key player for the Red Devils midfield, while Conte’s side have struggled without their Serbian enforcer.

Manchester United are in second place and nine points ahead of the defending Premier League champions.

Former Spurs forward Crooks admitted that he still can’t understand Conte’s decision to offload Matic given his obvious importance.

“Can anyone explain why Antonio Conte sold Matic to one of his main rivals?” Crooks, now a pundit at BBC Sport, said.

“I didn’t understand it at the time and it makes even less sense to me now. Against Brighton the Serbia international was imperious.

“Matic is not a star and refuses to crave the limelight in the same manner as Paul Pogba for example – although there is nothing wrong with that if you are performing.

“However Matic joining United has left Chelsea, and more importantly Conte, exposed and placed United in a much more favourable position. Exceptionally poor judgment by Conte.”

AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko confirmed that he held talks with Chelsea but he feels at home in the Italian capital and did not want to move:

“It is true that negotiations have been conducted and that is all I can say about this topic,” he told Klix.

“There was a lot of speculation, falsehoods and even a few ridiculous stories, and I’m really flattered by Chelsea‘s interest, a club that I respect and admire very much.

“So many stories have been told about my departure from Rome over the past few weeks, but I am still here. After all, I am happy to stay because Rome has become my home and an indelible part of my life.

“From the very first day I was accepted in Rome in an unreal way and I can never and will not forget it, and I have had some of the happiest moments in my life in this city.

“For the first time I felt the joy of fatherhood here when my daughter Una was born, and my son Dani was born in Rome. This city is now part of my life and it will always be.”

The Bosnian striker was part of the deal that brought Emerson Palmieri to Stamford Bridge: apparently, the two club agreed a £ 50m fee for both players, but then Dzeko failed to agree personal terms with Chelsea and the deal was called off, with the only Emerson moving to the London side.

Judging from some pictures, leaked over the web by agent John Erriot, Emerson Palmieri to Chelsea is a done deal: the Brazilian wing-back posed for a photo with his agent Federico Pastorello, Blues director Marina Granovskaia and other people from his entourage after he put pen on paper at Stamford Bridge offices.

Chelsea are expected to confirm the deal in hours.

Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda has joined Celtic on an 18-month loan deal, the clubs have announced.

Musonda, 21, stayed at Stamford Bridge in an attempt to break into the first team rather than leaving on loan last summer, and signed a new deal until December 2022.

But he has since made just 7 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, only 2 of which were starts.

Chelsea believe that working under former Blues academy coach Brendan Rodgers could kickstart Musonda’s senior career in football.

Celtic published an official statement that read:

“The Belgian Under-21 internationalist has been a much sought-after player in this transfer window, with many of Europe’s top clubs keen to take him on loan,” a Celtic club statement said of the move.

“However, both the player and his parent club believe that his football development will be best served at Celtic Park under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers.”

AS Roma are keen to keep Edin Dzeko after the striker has rejected the deal Chelsea have offered to him.

The Blues tried to propose a 1 year contract with the option to new it for another year to respect their policy about giving only 1 year deals to over 30 but the Bosnian striker ( who will be 32 in March) rejected it and demanded a 2 year contract plus an option for another year to the Stamford Bridge side.

Roma and Chelsea have already agreed a £ 26m fee for the transfer but now the deal is hold until the former Manchester City forward and Roman Abramovich club won’t agree personal terms.

According to ChelseaNews24 sources, Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco is getting nervous for the prolonging negotiation and is not keen to let him go anymore, also because the Giallorossi are now short of time to look for a replacement and are still in the race for a Champions League spot. So the deal is about to be called off soon.

In the last game against Sampdoria – that had been in hand since last September – Dzeko scored the equaliser at 94′, showing again his importance for Roma.

Furthermore, the Bosnian striker and his wife recently bought a house in Rome – having planned to live in the Italian capital for several years- and are not really keen to leave the Eternal City in this moment.

Chelsea/Dzeko deal has been holding because the Bosnian striker hasn’t agreed personal terms with the Blues yet.

The Stamford Bridge side have offered Edin Dzeko a one-year and a half deal, but the player wants a two or three-year and a half deal.

Meantime AS Roma and Chelsea have agreed the player’s transfer fee: the Giallorossi in fact, have accepted to sell the Bosnian for € 30 million plus € 5/8 million in add-ons. Full back

Emerson Palmieri is also part of the deal, though his signing would cost Chelsea somewhere in the region of € 20/25 million.

Emerson Palmieri has already agreed to join Chelsea but Dzeko has yet to reach an agreement with the Premier League champions.

Last night the former Manchester City ace scored Roma equalizer against Sampdoria and is now waiting for Chelsea to put a new offer on the table.

Dzeko’s intention is to end his career in European football in 2020 to join the MLS.

Speaking after being knocked out by Arsenal in the Carabao Cup Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was cryptic when questioned about Edin Dzeko, who is supposed to join the Blues in the next hours:

“No news on Dzeko,” the Italian coach said.

“I don’t like to talk about the transfer market.”

And when pressed for his thoughts more generally about the transfer market, Conte added:

“No, I don’t need anything.

“I’m a coach and I continue to work with the players I have. They are great players.”

Dezeko, anyway, scored a last gasp equaliser against Sampdoria tonight, in what will probably be his last game for the Giallorossi.

The Bosnian striker has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea, as well as the club reached agreement with AS Roma for the fee, and is expected to travel to London before the weekend to undergo a medical and put pen on his new deal.

Today can be the day that Emerson Palmieri and Edin Dzeko will finally move to Stamford Bridge after a negotiation lasted one week.

It is believed the two AS Roma players agreed personal terms with Chelsea yesterday and now they are ready to travel to London to undergo medicals and put pen on their new deals.

In these days the Giallorossi are staying in Milan after playing Inter on Sunday night and ready to travel to Genova tomorrow to play the game they still have in hand against Sampdoria, after it was cancelled last September due to bad weather. This is why, also, Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco wanted to wait for their transfer.

Rumours claims the Bosnian forward has already said goodbye to his team-mate and is heading to the airport in these minutes to travel to London.

The deal should be close for a fee in the region of £ 52m, £ 35m for Palmieri ( who was sidelined in the first part of the season since he was still recovering from an ACL injury) and the rest for the former Manchester City striker.

It’s just matter of time before their move to Chelsea will be official.

In this exclusive picture from Italian TV Mediaset Premium we can see Dzeko loading luggage to a car, ready to board on a flight to London.

Chelsea are ready to make a late bid on current Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez, who is understood to have agreed personal terms with Manchester United for a move to Old Trafford yesterday.

Blues manager Antonio Conte has been critical of Chelsea’s lack of signings and is desperate to add more firepower to his squad, but fans are not convinced about the latest transfer talk.

Manchester United are believed to pay £20million to Arsenal plus a further £15million to Sanchez’s agent to get the deal across the line, with the Chile international enthusiastic to join Jose Mourinho’s side.

Chelsea have also asked about his terms and cannot be ruled out, although they are behind United currently.

The Blues are desperate to sign a striker and can’t agree a fee for Andy Carroll with West Ham.
