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.

Real Madrid are ready to splash £ 100m ( € 115m) on Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

According to speculations coming from Spain the Blancos have been in contact with the Belgian player for months, and – as also ChelseaNews24 reported a couple of months ago-  Hazard already visited the Champions of Europe training ground in Valdebebas, where he also met the chairman Florentino Perez.

Actually, this was something not legal from both parts, as FIFA regulations clearly express that a player cannot negotiate with another team without the express authorization of his original club, but it’s not so uncommon in modern football.

Furthermore, it seems that Real Madrid have met with Hazard’s entourage on three separate occasions in 2017 and that is the first target of the Spanish giants to revamp their squad next summer, with their manager Zinedine Zidane – that is Eden’s childhood hero- who never hid his huge admiration for Hazard, one of his favourite players:

“After Messi and Ronaldo, Hazard is my favourite player. It is spectacular to see him play. Do I see him going to Real Madrid? I love the player, that’s all I will say,” the Frenchman said in 2015.

Recent reports have claimed Chelsea have been in talks with Hazard over a new contract, but the club may have cause for concern over his future now, as Real Madrid are ready to tempt both the player and the club with a monster offer ( £100m, at least £10m for Eden) that would become the all-time-record transfer fee.

The season is over and now it’s time to think about the future and that’s what is Michy Batshuayi doing.

The Belgian striker suddenly became a Chelsea hero after scoring the goal that brought the Premier League title back to Stamford Bridge against West Brom, but now he is open to a loan move for next campaign:

“Honestly, I’m not trying to think too much [about my future],” Batshuayi explained after Chelsea lost the FA Cup final.

“Now it will up to the board and the coach to make a decision.”

Cesc Fabregas doesn’t dismiss any speculation on his future, instead, he puts fuel on fire and claims he is not sure to stay at Stamford Bridge for the next season.

Recently the Chelsea star was often linked to Manchester United, where he would reunite with his ex boss Jose’ Mourinho, with whom he’s got a huge mutual respect and a good friendship.

Since the Blues have signed N’Golo Kante Fabregas lost his place as a regular starter and despite being an important man in the Chelsea title campaign this year, he is still looking for more playing time:

“I am not upset and I have nothing against Antonio. He has done a fantastic job,’“he said after Chelsea’s 2-1 loss at Wembley.

“I think I have a very good relationship with him. He has been honest with me and me with him. I understand his idea of football very, very well. I like it a lot.

“Every player wants to play more. This is in the genes of a winner. I am one of them and I will never put my head down or hands down. I want to fight.”

Speaking after the defeat against Arsenal in the FA Cup final Chelsea star Diego Costa dismissed China’s move speculations revealing the only club he would leave the Blues for, and it’s not Chinese:

“I will only leave Chelsea for Atletico. If not, I will stay here,The Daily Telegraph quote Costa as saying after Chelsea’s FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.

“I’m not interested in other clubs. I know Chelsea wants to sell players, but I told them, I have two years left in my contract and I won’t go somewhere else just because they want so.

“I will only sign for another club in Europe, they know that. Otherwise I’ll stay with my current contract. I have a contract and no intention of leaving, but if there are changes to be made that might reduce my chances, if the coach won’t count on me anymore or is to give space to another striker, I know that I’ll have to leave. But only to where I’m willing to.

“Everyone knows what my preferred club is, there’s nothing to hide. Money is good, but I’m grateful for what I have right now and I have other things to look forward to, like playing the next World Cup. I know that I have a chance to be called if I’m playing well and at a high level, that’s something I want.

“If I have to move to another City or another country than Spain, I don’t think I’ll go, I’d rather stay at Chelsea. If the club wants to sell me, they know where I want to go.”

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte confirmed that, despite speculations insisting he would accept Inter offer in Italy, that he will stay at Stamford Bridge next year, revealing his family- that was still living in Turin this year- will move to London with him, a big change for the Italian tactician:

“My family will move to London next season,” he told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

“We are planning the future [with Chelsea], we got the base, we miss the cherries on top.

“I still have two year of contract, they [Chelsea] show to appreciate me, we share the same ideas and also the kind of project [for the future of the team].

“When you have the same pace in the construction of some things you are calm.”



Chelsea star Diego Costa released a statement on his future and, as expected, it won't be at Stamford Bridge: “My destination is already made. I...
