He has been on the transfer market rumours for at least two years, but Eden Hazard reveals he won’t move from Stamford Bridge at the moment as he is happy at Chelsea:

“I’m fine here. We’ll see what happens in a year or two,” he told RMC Sport.

“Leave this year? I will not leave. Everybody knows what I said after the World Cup, but I’m happy here.”

The Premier League and Football League voted to shut the transfer window before the start of the English top-flight season, which kicked off on 10 August.

However, the change did not affect most of the European clubs expect Italian ones, as the transfer window there closed last Friday, who can still sign players – including Premier League ones – until their respective deadlines later in the month:

“The transfer window in England is over. Clubs cannot sign players,” said Hazard.

“It would be a little odd if they sell me now while they can’t recruit a replacement.”

Hazard, who has won five major trophies since joining Chelsea in summer 2012, added he could see that “the fans still love me” from the reception he received during the Blues’ 3-2 win over Arsenal yesterday.

The winger still has two years to run on the five-year contract he signed with the Blues back in February 2015.

After confirming that Maurizio Sarri will become new Chelsea boss following the last legal details to be discussed on his deal, Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis claimed that Jorginho is heading to Stamford Bridge as well, revealing the Italian international rejected an offer from Man City to join the Blues:

Jorginho in the Sarri deal? These are separate matters”

“I accepted Manchester City offer for him two weeks ago, but I will have to apologize with them: if the player prefers to live in London rather than in Manchester I can understand him, then if Chelsea proposes him better wages I can understand him even more and I cannot do anything”

“But Jorginho at Chelsea is not linked to the Sarri deal”

During today’s press conference to preview the game against West Bromwich Albion Antonio Conte was asked if he regretted letting Michy Batshuayi go on loan to Borussia Dortmund in light of the revelation that Alvaro Morata’s back injury could be a long-term one.

The Italian boss took a moment to compose himself before sinking his face into his despairing hands then replied:

 

“Now the transfer market has finished,” said Conte, upon regaining his composure

“We took the decision and now this is not important to say, we could do this or the other. Now we have to finish the season in the best possible way.”

Esultanza dopo il gol di Edin Dzeko Roma. Goal celebration. Roma 07-02-2017 Stadio Olimpico Campionato Serie A, AS Roma - Fiorentina

AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko confirmed that he held talks with Chelsea but he feels at home in the Italian capital and did not want to move:

“It is true that negotiations have been conducted and that is all I can say about this topic,” he told Klix.

“There was a lot of speculation, falsehoods and even a few ridiculous stories, and I’m really flattered by Chelsea‘s interest, a club that I respect and admire very much.

“So many stories have been told about my departure from Rome over the past few weeks, but I am still here. After all, I am happy to stay because Rome has become my home and an indelible part of my life.

“From the very first day I was accepted in Rome in an unreal way and I can never and will not forget it, and I have had some of the happiest moments in my life in this city.

“For the first time I felt the joy of fatherhood here when my daughter Una was born, and my son Dani was born in Rome. This city is now part of my life and it will always be.”

The Bosnian striker was part of the deal that brought Emerson Palmieri to Stamford Bridge: apparently, the two club agreed a £ 50m fee for both players, but then Dzeko failed to agree personal terms with Chelsea and the deal was called off, with the only Emerson moving to the London side.

Judging from some pictures, leaked over the web by agent John Erriot, Emerson Palmieri to Chelsea is a done deal: the Brazilian wing-back posed for a photo with his agent Federico Pastorello, Blues director Marina Granovskaia and other people from his entourage after he put pen on paper at Stamford Bridge offices.

Chelsea are expected to confirm the deal in hours.

An official statement on the Blues website read:

Baba Rahman has today joined Schalke on loan until the end of the 2018/19 season.

The Ghanaian defender, 23, re-joins the Bundesliga side, where he spent the first half of last season before sustaining a knee injury during the Africa Cup of Nations.

Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda has joined Celtic on an 18-month loan deal, the clubs have announced.

Musonda, 21, stayed at Stamford Bridge in an attempt to break into the first team rather than leaving on loan last summer, and signed a new deal until December 2022.

But he has since made just 7 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, only 2 of which were starts.

Chelsea believe that working under former Blues academy coach Brendan Rodgers could kickstart Musonda’s senior career in football.

Celtic published an official statement that read:

“The Belgian Under-21 internationalist has been a much sought-after player in this transfer window, with many of Europe’s top clubs keen to take him on loan,” a Celtic club statement said of the move.

“However, both the player and his parent club believe that his football development will be best served at Celtic Park under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers.”
