Manchester United manager José Mourinho is willing to reunite with Chelsea star Willian at Old Trafford.

The former Blues boss and the Brazilian winger have always got a huge mutual respect for each other and a move to the Red Devils could be possible since he is starting to grow frustrated as he is lacking with opportunities under Antonio Conte this year.

Man United have already shown interest for Willian but Chelsea do not wish to sell during next January transfer window unless they receive an extraordinary offer.

The Brazilian, anyway, spoke about his future following Chelsea’s midweek win over Huddersfield Town and said the club’s fans can be calm as he is happy at the West London side.

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.

Reports claim Antonio Conte was furious with Chelsea board after failing to sign Fernando Llorente on transfer market deadline day because of a derisory bid to Swansea.

In fact, it seems the Blues directors only offered £ 5m to secure the Spanish striker services, but the Swans rejected the bid and preferred to sell Llorente to Spurs, who offered £ 11.5m.

Conte was really keen to sign the 32-year-old and it’s believed he was really upset after the deal was called off.

Llorente could have been a precious substitute of Alvaro Morata, who picked up a hamstring injury against Manchester City and will probably be out for the rest of the month.

Diego Costa was left out of squad by Antonio Conte after the pair fell out in the end of the past season: the Brazilian-born striker is AWOL despite being included in the Blues Premier League squad, and always claimed his only wish is to return to Atletico Madrid.

But the Spanish side have to respect FIFA transfer market ban until the end of 2017 and Diego can join them back only in January 2018.

Next year all major national teams will have to challenge in Russia 2018 World Cup and the Spanish forward needs to play during the season to be selected in the Spain squad.

This is the reason why Fenerbahce presented an offer to Diego last Monday: ChelseaNews24 exclusive sources in Costa’s entourage revealed the Turkish side proposed a £ 7m deal to the player that accepted the offer and free loan to Chelsea, who wanted a fee. 

The two clubs agreed a £ 5m fee for a season-long loan, but then the Spanish forward changed his mind, claiming he just wanted to be loaned to the Turkish only for the next three months, asking a £ 4+2m add ons in wages for until the end of 2017, so to join Atletico in January 2018: in this case the loan would be free of charge.

Always according to our exclusive sources Costa rejected a £ 24m per year contract Tianjin Quanjin last January, when the winter transfer window was opened and Chelsea could still replaced him, and then accepted a £ 26m on February from the same side, but the Blues had no chance to substitute him anymore so they didn’t let him go: it was in this period that his relationship with Conte started to fall out.

The deal can be closed today or tomorrow, as the transfer market window in Turkey is still open until tomorrow night.

New Chelsea midfielder Tiemoué Bakayoko reveals he didn’t regret choosing the Blues over Paris Saint Germain.

The French side is believed to have placed a bid to AS Monaco before Bakayoko moved to London but, eventually, they were beat by the club owned by Roman Abramovich, who secured the French international services for the next five years.

“Did they make a bid? I don’t know. But it’s hard not to be interested in a club like PSG, the new Chelsea player admitted.

“I opted for Chelsea, and I don’t regret my decision”.

The French international started 25 Ligue 1 games last season, scoring two goals and making one assist.

Before his €40 million move to Stamford Bridge the 24-year-old told France Football:

“I can’t leave Monaco to go to PSG.

“It’s impossible, because I’ve just finished champion ahead of Paris. I can’t leave for a club that has finished behind me.”

Chelsea are ready to place a second bid for Danny Drinkwater but the Blues are reluctant to offer more than £ 30m, as the Foxes are demanding.

The Stamford Bridge outfit made an offer believed to be in the region of £ 20m last week, but Leicester City rejected it.

According to Standard Sports, the English midfielder, who is close to full fitness after a minor thigh injury, is keen to make the move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is really keen to sign Drinkwater to revamp his midfield, that lost Nemanja Matic in favour of Manchester United and Ruben Loftus Cheek on loan to Crystal Palace.

Tottenham are set to reject Chelsea bid for Danny Rose in the next days: the Blues are expected to offer £ 50m for the left back.

According to the Evening Standard the interest sprouted following an interview given by Rose in which his criticised Spurs’ wage structure, transfer business and ambition.

Chelsea are reportedly prepared to almost double the England international’s £65,000-a-week wages with an offer of £120,000-a-week.

But it is said to be unlikely that Spurs would consider negotiating with the Blues – who will be also their next rivals in the Premier League next Sunday – over a deal for Rose.

The 27-year-old expressed a determination to be paid what he is worth, indicating that is not currently the case, and a willingness to consider a move to another club if an offer came in.

Rose signed a new deal with Spurs that will run until 2021 last year and the North London club are not intentioned to sell him.

Chelsea star Willian admitted Manchester United were keen on him and tried to start a negotiation to bring him to Old Trafford, but the Blues didn’t want to let him go.

“There were a few conversations with my agent. I worked with Mourinho and I became his friend as well,” the Brazilian winger revealed.

“He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person. He has put his trust in me and in my work, and I was very grateful to him.

“Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I’m very happy at Chelsea.”

Willian, anyway, claimed he is more than happy to stay at Chelsea and play under Antonio Conte.

The Brazilian believes both the Italian and Mourinho have a very different way to coach:

“They are very different. Everyone has their way of working. Mourinho is a coach who likes more the ball practice, works the ball possession and makes short games.

Conte likes to work the tactical and the physical part. Every coach has his way of working. Mourinho is a fantastic coach and won everything wherever he went.

“Conte is a fantastic coach too, because he won everything at Juventus and has already won the Premier League in his first year with Chelsea. Each one has his merits.

“Conte is a coach who works hard every day, works a lot of tactics and the physical part. In the last season, he transformed our team when he changed the formation to 3-4-3. We managed to assimilate very well what he asked us in the training sessions and things worked out.”

Speaking about future Chelsea targets, Willian said:

“I dream of winning more titles with Chelsea, win a Champions League and Fifa Club World Cup with Chelsea and be one of the best players in the world, as well as win titles with the Selecao (Brazil) and a World Cup.

Diego Costa is keen to join only one club: Atletico Madrid.

After falling out with Blues boss Antonio Conte at the end of the past season, the Spanish forward didn’t come back from his summer break to train, as he continues his holidays in Brazil, but he is still on Chelsea books.

Despite Atletico’s ban from the market until next year, Costa is discussing his exit from the club with the directors to join the Colchoneros and be ready to play since January 2018.

The Brazilian-born striker rejected AC Milan offer as he is only considering an Atletico return.

Ricardo Cardoso, a lawyer and legal representative of Diego Costa that is part of Jorge Mendes’ company Gestifute, has spoken to Spanish news agency Agencia EFE, and he’s announced that Costa is on the verge of handing in a formal transfer request to speed up his Chelsea exit.

Cardoso also said that Blues manager Antonio Conte has acted “unfairly” to his client, while he claimed the chances of Costa ever playing for Chelsea again are “impossible”.

The lawyer also claimed:

“We are going to use all legal mechanisms to hold Chelsea accountable for their behaviour, making it possible for Diego Costa to leave. We will formally ask for a ‘transfer request”.
