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.

Chelsea's Andreas Christensen during UEFA Champions League - Group C match between Chelsea and FK Qarabag at Stanford Bridge, London 12 Sept 2017

Denmark international Andreas Christensen’s impressive performances for Chelsea this season were rewarded with a new long-term contract at the Blues that was signed today.

The 21-year-old player– who entered Chelsea academy when he was 15 – has signed a new four-and-a-half year contract.

So far in this campaign he replaced David Luiz as a first choice central defender following some fine displays since returning to London after a two-season-loan at Bundesliga side Borussia Mönchengladbach.

“It feels really good to sign a new contract and I’m just happy to be committed to Chelsea for the future,” Christensen told the club official website.

“I’ve played a lot of games (22 in all competitions), I’m enjoying it at the club and everything is working well.”

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said the contract was a tribute to Christensen’s latest performances:

This contract is reward for the excellent form Andreas has shown in the first half of the season,” she said.

“He showed immense potential when he signed for Chelsea in 2012 and is now enjoying the benefits of the dedication and professionalism he has shown since.

“After two seasons on loan in Germany we were convinced he was ready to be a part of the squad this season and he has grasped the opportunity with both hands.”

Despite all the rumours and speculations about an agreement already reached with Real Madrid for next season, Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois seems now willing to sign a contract extension with the Blues.

Speaking with HLN’s Kristof Terreur, the Belgian said about his contract: “It has just turned the new year, so we will wait a few weeks and then sit around the table. I’m happy at Chelsea and a deal is close.”

Courtois, also revealed to Kristof Terreur that his contract extension could be linked to Hazard‘s one: “Do Eden and I encourage each other? Yes. He will say ‘if you sign, I will sign’ and I say the same to him. With the money he will raise, you can buy five players but none of them will be like Eden. It would be like Barcelona losing Lionel Messi or Real Madrid losing Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Thibaut Courtois, whose deal with Chelsea will expire in summer 2019, hasn’t renewed his contract with the Blues yet and Eden Hazard, whose deal with the Stamdford Bridge side will end in summer 2020, is in the same situation.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte spoke about this in today’s press conference, stressing the fact that the club is doing everything to offer them a new deal so to keep them in West London but, as we could understand from his words, the Italian boss is not sure the negotiations will be successful.

Real Madrid are believed to be really keen on both of them with another Spanish giant, Barcelona, and PSG ready to enter in possible race two sign the two Belgian players:

“He’s got a contract also for next season with Chelsea,” Conte said speaking about Courtois.

“He’s one of the best goalkeepers in the world and my staff and I are proud to have him as keeper, we’re proud to create this synergy with the 3 goalkeeper, I am very happy to have them, I hope to keep them for the next season.

“As you know very well there is a private conversation between the agent and the club, of course I hope he will stay, he is a very good goalkeeper and a very good guy.

“For sure when you are in a great club, a great project, you want to stay, I guess the family is not a big issue, there are private conversation among club, agents and players and of course I will be very happy if he will stay with us, with this great synergy also with the other goalkeepers and the goalkeeper coach.”

Eden Hazard  is believed he rejected a new contract with Chelsea and was also very close to join Real Madrid last summer, but his ankle injury stopped the deal:

“My answer is always the same, this is a private conversation among club, agents and player. I can say the same I just said for Eden, I am proud to have him in my squad, I am very happy to work with him, he’s a really good guy, he’s space to improve but I repeat the club and agents take care of this.”

About him staying at Chelsea next season and the upcoming transfer window, Conte said:

“I am very happy to stay here and to work with these players, I guess the transfer market and this window can be important if we are able to bring the right players. I am a coach, I have to work with my players, the club take care of th transfer market, they will decide if they have to improve the team.

“You’re talking about two important players for us, for sure it will be very important to continue with this kind of players, it’s very important to improve your team, not to sell your best players.”

 

According to The Times Chelsea star Eden Hazard has rejected a new deal with the Stamford Bridge side.

The Premier League champions wants to tie Hazard down to a new contract despite his current one having another two and a half years to run.

The club owned by Roman Abramovich offer Hazard a £300,000-a-week deal, making him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

But the Belgian star is believed to have turned down the offer in the hope of securing a move to Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants have been keen on him for a while and speculations claimed he already agreed personal terms with them for a move to be completed last summer, but his ankle injury changed everything.

According to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, the Champions of Europe manager Zinedine Zidane recently phoned Hazard for a confidential conversation.

As reported in the same article, Cristiano Ronaldo’s position at the club is no longer “untouchable” and he would have a real competition for his place if Hazard arrived.

The 26-year-old has been in magnificent form for Chelsea this term scoring nine goals and impressing again with top performances and assists for his team-mates.

According to rumours coming from Spain Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois put new deal’s negotiations with the Blues on hold because he’s considering a move to Real Madrid.

Merengues’ first-choice signing would be Manchester United’s David De Gea, Courtois has reportedly been identified as the ideal alternative, with Zinedine Zidane reportedly huge fan of the Belgian keeper.

This is the main reason why Courtois is currently refusing to put pen on paper on a new Chelsea deal, with the current one expiring in 2019.

It would be a return to the Spanish capital for the Belgian player, as he already played three seasons in Atletico Madrid on loan from Chelsea, from 2011 to 2014.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has landed in Madrid today to finalize his move to Atletico after being AWOL with the Blues for a couple of months.

The Spanish forward arrived from Brazil to undergo a medical and discuss his deal, that will be signed only in January 2018, when the Colchoneros ban on the transfer market will end.

Meanwhile, Costa will train with his new team-mates to be ready to come back in action next year.

The Diego Simeone‘s side will pay £ 50m to Chelsea, £ 10m more of what the Blues paid in 2014 to sign him, and will earn £ 6m-per-year, ChelseaNews24 exclusive sources reveals.

This is the end of a summer-long saga that started when the Brazilian-born striker fell out with manager Antonio Conte in the end of the last season, with the Italian boss telling him that he was not in his plans anymore via sms before holidays.

After failing to sign Romelu Lukaku, who preferred a move to Manchester United, the Blues completed the signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid to replace Costa.
