Marco van Ginkel is in talks with PSV Eindhoven to turn his deal from a loan to a permanent move.

The Dutch midfielder had an unlucky spell at Chelsea: he moved in summer 2013 from Vitesse Arnhem, but broke his knee ligaments after only two months.

After recovering he went on loan to AC Milan, Stoke City and PSV ( twice) and now he’s set to stay at the Dutch side.

Van Ginkel made just four appearances at Chelsea and now he believes is time to permanently join another club.

Bertrand Traorè hits out at Chelsea after his move to Lyon was official yesterday.

The 21-year-old was signed by the French side in a permanent deal for £ 8.8m, with the Blues believed to have a buy-back clause.

The Burkina Faso international, who joined Chelsea from Auxuerre’s academy seven years ago, made just 10 Premier League appearances for the Blues and claims he was never given a fair crack of the whip:

“I was trained at the club, I did everything, two seasons ago I even pushed the holders a bit, but we all saw what happened,’ he said.

“I made a very good preseason and finally I was forced to go on loan, I did not want to repeat the same scenario this season.

‘It was time to look for stability in a club where I would play a leading role, where I would be a ‘cadre’ of the team, I think that here I can do everything to be among these sort of people.”

Sky Sports pundit Alan Smith claimed that Tiemouné Bakayoko‘s signing for Chelsea will mean Nathaniel Chalobah exit from the clubSky Sports pundit Alan Smith claimed that Bakayoko‘s signing for Chelsea will mean Nathaniel Chalobah exit from the club:

Chelsea have nearly bought a central midfielder haven’t they, which is going to block Nathaniel Chalobah‘s path,” Smith said.

“You’re thinking he will probably have to leave. That goes right across the board with a lot of the boys.”

Anyway, with Nemanja Matic soon moving to Manchester United it would be possible for Chalobah to stay in Chelsea squad as a substitute of the French midfielder.

Chelsea target Radja Nainggolan admits he’s thinking about his next step.

His future, anyway, is not set to be at Stamford Bridge but at Old Trafford instead.

Italian newspaper Il Tempo, based in Rome, claimed this week that United have offered the Roma midfielder a £130,000-a-week contract as José Mourinho looks to bolster his midfield with two new signings.

It is believed that the Portuguese manager personally told Nainggolan of his desire to sign the 29-year-old and offered to double his current wages, Roma have only offered to add an extra £17k to his weekly package.

The Belgian international is thinking about the Red Devils offer, as he suggested with a post on his Instagram personal account:

Posting on the social media website while on holiday on Monday afternoon, he wrote: ‘”Thinking about what to do??’”followed by some very suggestive emojis.

Naninggolan has already commented reports linking him with Man United some weeks ago, saying:

“It can be true, it can be not true, that’s something that you have to know.

“When you play football you have to make choices and last season my choice was to stay [at Roma]. We’ll see [what will happen this summer]. I’m going to go on vacation and then we will talk about it.”

Antonio Conte‘s agent Federico Pastorello revealed Inter star Antonio Candreva, a client of his as well, was close to join Chelsea some months ago.

The Italian international was targeted by the Blues boss also last summer but it was in January that Candreva was closer to move to Stamford Bridge:

“There was a moment, in January, after Chelsea sold Oscar that they were looking for a player to replace him, and Candreva was a perfect substitute…but he had joined Inter only for six months and didn’t want to move,” Pastorello claimed.

The Italian agent didn’t dismiss Inter offer for Conte in the past months as well:

“Inter were looking for a manager in the past months…but now they appointed Luciano Spalletti, and they got a really important coach.”

According to Mirror Sports Chelsea are planning to hijack Alvaro Morata’s move to Manchester United.

Diego Costa is set to leave after breaking up with Blues boss Antonio Conte and the Italian manager sees Morata as the Brazilian born striker ideal replacement in west London.

Roman Abramovich is said to have placed a £70m bid for the Real Madrid star while Manchester United have already had a £52.4m offer rejected by the Champions of Europe.

Red Devils boss José Mourinho was the man who let Morata debut in Real Madrid first team during his time in the Spanish capital and knows the forward really well, furthermore the pair has got a lot of mutual respect and are looking forward to get reunited, with the Spanish striker that has already set- apparently- a personal agreement with Manchester United: these are the main reasons why it won’t be easy for Chelsea to hijack this transfer, but the Blues want to try as Conte believes Morata is the perfect striker to replace Diego Costa.

The bombshell arrived this morning from Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo can leave Real Madrid or, even better, Cristiano Ronaldo WANTS to leave Real Madrid.

Something incredible that could effect this transfer window in every country, with the Portuguese star that always admitted he would have loved a return to Manchester United, but also an occasion, for every top team in Europe, to close an authentic super deal, signing one of the best players in history that also brings sponsors, visibility and money. And among these clubs, of course, we find also Chelsea.

According to our respected sources inside Real Madrid this is not just a rumour: we understand that Ronaldo is REALLY mad to Spanish authorities as they wanted to involve him in a fiscal scandal, claiming he hasn’t paid € 17m of taxes over the past years, a thing that Gestifute, Jorge Mendes’ agency that are taking care of every aspect of Ronaldo’s professional life, dismissed with an official press release.

We also understand that Cristiano told his Portugal team-mates ( that are with him in these day since they are competing in Confederations Cup) that he would like to quit Real Madrid but, above all, Spain because he doesn’t feel respected in that country, since it’s not the first time Fiscalia are trying to get him into trouble with no apparent real reason.

Therefore, his Portuguese mates reported his discontent to A Bola, who broke the news this morning.

And according to our sources, what A Bola reported is true: Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the best players in football history if not the best, can really leave Real Madrid after eight years.

A transfer that can influence the entire summer transfer window, that promise to be MAD at this point.

Diego Costa‘s brother has confirmed that the Chelsea striker is determined to leave Stamford Bridge after falling out with manager Antonio Conte:

“Diego, fortunately, has many offers” Jair is quoted to have said by Brazilian media.

“I cannot say how many there are, but they exist.”

“To be honest, right now that is very difficult, many friends have called me up in the last few hours to ask me about that [report] but Diego has not said anything about this”.

When asked about a possible move to Brazil on loan until January 2018, Costa’s brother claimed: “He is a Palmeirense [fan] even though me and my father support Sao Paulo.”

“A move to China is very difficut because next year is the World Cup and Diego wants to be there”.

Lyon are close to agree a permanent deal with Chelsea to sign one of their young strikers, Bertrand Traore.

After spending the last season on loan at Ajax, where he scored 9 goals in 22 appearances, the forward doesn’t seem to fit into Antonio Conte‘s plans and is set to move.

Traore was also targeted by Everton and West Ham but it seems the French side have just to agree some details on the bonus payments with the Blues.

Lyon are ready to invest £ 17.5m plus add-ons to sign the Burkina Faso international by the end of this week.
