Good evening Blues and welcome to Tuesday’s news updates from CFCnet, where we take a look at the latest Chelsea news, transfer rumours and anything else surrounding the club.
There has been repercussions after the dismal loss to Leicester City on Monday evening and Jose Mourinho has fired in to his players claiming that they have ‘betrayed’ him and that ‘they must not feel the same for Chelsea’ as he does.
Strong claims from a Manager who to me, had lost his players respect a long time a go, especially Eden Hazard. Yesterday proved this even further when the Belgian went down ‘injured’ under a challenge from Jamie Vardy. He went to come back on the pitch, received a bad pass and turned and walked down the tunnel. His body language said it all, he is frustrated and I fully believe he does not respect the Manager.
I can see him leaving if not January, in the summer, but that depends if Mourinho stays. One thing for sure is that we will not be seeing those two and many other players, working together for much longer. Now with these comments from the Manager – it appears that he is fully admitting this as well.
Meanwhile, Chelsea will make yet another offer for John Stones for £40 million that WILL get rejected by Everton once again. There were three bids of near that fee rejected in the summer despite a transfer request from Stones. It will take big money and more requests from the England defender for a deal to go through. But would he really want to leave for a relegation struggling side in January!?
Finally, Juan Cuadrado will agree to join Juventus and sign on a permanent deal in January. The Colombian has found form since leaving Chelsea and lets’ be honest, was a victim of the ‘Mourinho not giving players a proper chance disease’. At least he will bring in some solid money to the club.
