Tammy Abraham impressed in his first month on loan at Bristol City, where he scored 9 goals in 11 appearances.

Last night the Chelsea loanee scored the winner against Fulham at Craven Cottage at the last minute, letting his team going through the next round of the EFL Cup. By the way, the Whites‘ goal ( the Robins won 2-1) was scored by another player on loan from Chelsea, Lucas Piazon.

After the game Bristol City boss Lee Johnson praised the young striker:

“He’s a lovely lad who loves his football. That’s the bit you can’t change. He’s got to love his football and not love being a football.

“If he continues that in his career, the world is his oyster. He is top class. He could into Chelsea’s team now.

“He’s a poacher. His movement is very sharp and when he’s energised and got the buzz he’s a handful. He’s got stuff to learn.”

It has emerged that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wanted to keep young striker Tammy Abraham against his proposed loan move to Bristol City.

But the striker has since moved out on loan to Bristol City, where he has impressed thus far,scoring 4 goal in as many appearances. Bristol City director Mark Ashton explained that the deal almost fell through.

With Antonio Conte,not resuming duties officially at Chelsea until the middle of July due to his euro 2016 commitments with italy,Ashton admitted the Blues boss wanted to have a look at the young striker himself,before he was taken with the first team on their tour of the USA.

Speaking, Ashton said: “We had an agreement with Chelsea that, if Tammy came out on loan, it would be to Bristol City. We had that one in the drawer by the end of June”.

“We then brought Tammy and his family in, gave them a tour of Bristol and of the training ground and showedhim where he would be living”.

But Chelsea had to delay, because AntonioConte was coming in. Once he was in, he made it very clear that he liked Tammy Abraham.”

“When Tammy went from the Euros (UEFA Under-19 Championships in Germany) straight to the US on tour with Chelsea, the feedback we got from Chelsea’s directors was that Conte was keen on him.

“At that stage, we were thinking he might keep him in and not allow us to take him. We kept pushing and the player, his family and his representatives kept pushing.”

“Tammy knew that, if he stayed at Chelsea, his game time would be limited. He wanted to come here and play.”

2016 summer transfer window has slammed shut, and teams have made notable and significant changes from last season in the already ongoing 2016/2017 Premier League season, albeit the international break it has been quite an electric start for the two Manchester clubs and of course Chelsea who all lead by 9 points.

During the course of the transfer windows there were some good signings by Chelsea in the form of Michy Batshuayi from Olympique de Marseille and N’Golo Kante from current Premier League champions Leicester City as well as two notable deadline signings in Fiorentina’s left back Marcos Alonso and and most notably yet sensational return of former blue David Luiz which raised a few eyebrows with some greeting it with criticism and others skeptic about the transfer but the reactions have been the exact opposite with the fans,since he’s a “fans favorite” in his first spell,so it’s no surprise he’s been received with an opened hand by the fans. But irrespective of what’s being said or speculated only time will tell if the signings make the desired impact this season.

Then we have the Cesc Fabregas dilemma, that has been a blight in an otherwise good start for Chelsea ,with the fans calling for him to start games because his creativity is being wasted on the bench and the rumors were making the waves around during the summer transfer window about his proposed move to Spanish giants Real Madrid but the spaniard has come out bluntly to deny such and even claimed to have a fantastic relationship with BLues boss Antonio Conte also stating that he has Fabregas in his plans, but it is yet to be seen where Spaniard will be deployed as the season unfolds but only time will tell.

Unfortunately he inclusion of Kenedy and Matt Miazga to the club loan army stronghold with both joining Watford and Vitesse Arnhem respectively while Michael Hector joined Eintracht Frankfurt earlier,only the best can be wished to them while we are optimistic of the performances at the end of the season and hope they garner the expected experience and improvement.

AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella looked satisfied after his team won 2-1 in a friendly game against Bournemouth yesterday.

The Rossoneri manager also had nice words for Chelsea loanee Mario Pasalic, that joined his team in the last days of the transfer window:

“Pasalic? He definitely has great potential and he did well considering he only just arrived and didn’t train a lot.

Chelsea loanee Christian Atsu is really enthusiastic of his new adventure at Newcastle and he shared his feelings with the Magpies official website:

“It will be amazing, to play in front of those [Newcastle] fans, I can’t wait,” he claimed.

“I’ve seen the fans – they are really great – and playing in front of a lot of fans gives you a lot of confidence.

“At home, you can see the fans cheering the team. I’m really happy and excited and I can’t wait to play in front of them.

“It gives you a lot of confidence when you are playing and I always look forward to seeing the fans behind the team, behind the players.

“It boosts the team forward, so I hope they will be doing that for us each and every time we are playing.”

It’s no mistery Juan Cuadrado didn’t feel at home at Chelsea and this the reason why he pushed for a move back to Juventus, that was finally announced today.

The Colombian winger joined the team where he played also the last season on a three-year loan deal and expressed his joy for this deal with a post on Instagram that read:

Thanks God I am back to my home and together with my team-mates we will go to conquer everything

After Juventus announced the signing of Juan Cuadrado back from Chelsea, the Blues added in their statement that the loan deal is not valid just for one season but for three seasons.

This is what the Chelsea statemet read:

Juan Cuadrado is returning to Juventus with a new three-year loan agreement finalised today.

The 28-year-old re-joins the Italian champions where he played last season, having previously made 15 appearances for Chelsea. He signed for us from another Serie A side, Fiorentina, in February 2015.

Cuadrado played in the League Cup final win over Tottenham in March 2015 and in 12 of the Premier League title-winning matches that season.

Having helped Colombia finish third in the Copa America this summer, Cuadrado returned to Chelsea to take part in the pre-season games but was not involved in our opening league or cup matches.

We thank Juan for his contribution to our success in two competitions and wish him the best for his loan in Italy. 



Thibaut Courtois is happy in London, but to stay at Stamford Bridge also next season he would like Chelsea will offer him a new contract. “Contract talks haven’t opened...
