Everton are keen to offer a huge salary improvement to Chelsea target Romelu Lukaku to convince him to stay at Goodison Park.

New boss Ronald Koeman is not convinced in off-loading the Belgian striker, that he considers very important for his squad, and the Toffees are are prepared to offer him a new deal said to be worth over £100,000 a week.

Should Lukaku leave Everton, Chelsea will have to challenge Juventus to sign him, since the Italian club targeted him too.

It’s no mistery Paul Pogba has been a Chelsea target since last summer.

Now, with the new transfer window approaching, rumours of him moving to Stamford Bridge are increasing, but the Blues will have to challenge with Manchester City to sign the Juventus star.

The French midfielder, 23, got a great potential and the Italian club demands at least £85m to sell him.

But now it seems also Pogba put his conditions to next club that is going to sign him: his request is a £ 300,000 per week contract.

A huge wage that would make him the highest paid played in English football history.

FC Porto president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa has decided to respond to Jose Mourinho’s allegations, about the level of Iker Casillas’ wages.

A few weeks ago Jose Mourinho has criticized Porto’s transfer policy. The Special One has criticised especially  the size of the salary being paid to former Real Madrid player. According to Mourinho, the Portuguese club have offered Casillas, too high amount of money.

That is why today, Porto president has decided to respond to Mourinho’s allegations. He revealed that Porto are paying less than a third of Casillas’ wages from Real Madrid.

Pinto da Costa told Goal :

“For us, the Casillas deal was highly attractive in terms of costs, he’s still considered one of the best in the world and has one of the best resumes around,”

“At 34 years of age he still has three of four seasons left at the highest level. I wonder if any club in the world would turn down the chance to sign Casillas for wages equivalent to two of our outgoing loanees, Andres Fernandez and Fabiano.”

“I chose it was better to sign Casillas. Mourinho inconceivably made fun of the Casillas deal, but he’s shot himself in the foot as Porto are paying less than a third of his salary – Madrid pay the rest.”
