Chelsea midfielder Jorginho’s agent has confirmed “it was all done” with Manchester City before moving to Stamford Bridge but Citizens couldn’t find a deal with Napoli.

The Italian international followed Maurizio Sarri from San Paolo to Stamford Bridge last summer, despite being in talks with Pep Guardiola‘s side for weeks.

“It was all done with Jorginho,” Joao Santos revealed to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“There was an agreement, but there was no agreement between the clubs. All parties have to agree, and one did not.

“Then Chelsea asked what the situation was after Sarri arrived and Jorginho went to London.

“He’s really enjoying it at Chelsea, the team is on a roll and has won four matches out of four. It’s a great start.

“Going to Chelsea was a unique opportunity, the career of a player is very short and now we hope for the best.”

Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea, now it’s almost official.

Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis is speaking in this moment in a press conference and claimed the deal is about to be closed:

“Sarri is close to be new Chelsea manager, maybe it will be official tonight. My lawyers are in talks with his lawyers to finalise everything,” the Italian businessman claimed, as quoted by CalcioNapoli24.com .

“Everything it’s upon him, let’s see what happens”

Jorginho in the deal? These are separate matters”

“I accepted Manchester City offer for him two weeks ago, but I will have to apologize with them: if the player prefers to live in London rather than in Manchester I can understand him, then if Chelsea proposes him better wages I can understand him even more and I cannot do anything”

“But Jorginho at Chelsea is not linked to the Sarri deal”

Gianfranco Zola, who’s set to take part of Maurizio Sarri‘s backroom staff, is confident “the clubs are working on” the deal to bring the Italian manager to Stamford Bridge in the next few hours.

The Chelsea legend told Sky in Italy: “There’s so much talk. There are many teams who would like a coach like Sarri. I think the parties are working on it, but I don’t know anything more.

“Antonio Conte did a great job. If Sarri were to go to Chelsea I hope he’s allowed to work as he wants, because that’s how he can improve teams.

“It’s definitely a different challenge, Chelsea is a new situation. I hope Maurizio will get the chance to do top work.”

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.”

Esultanza dopo il gol di Edin Dzeko Roma. Goal celebration. Roma 07-02-2017 Stadio Olimpico Campionato Serie A, AS Roma - Fiorentina

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.
