Eder Militao exam
Chelsea will be able to watch tonight’s match against Real Madrid.
This may confirm an interesting scout assignment and lead to the choice of Antonio Rudiger for the future.
As N’Golo Kante’s decision approaches, Real Madrid are set to make a £ 67million move to Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel is looking to increase his midfield options through the summer transfer window.
Chelsea and Manchester City are trailing Real Madrid in the race to sign Monaco’s high-profile midfielder Aurelien Thuamen this summer, and Thomas Tuchel is looking to improve his midfield options.
N’Golo Kante has just one year left to complete his current contract with Chelsea at the end of the season, leaving the club to make a major decision. The Blues are unlikely to offer the 31-year-old a new long-term deal and may be considering buying a midfielder whenever possible.
Giorgione is also in the same position as the Italian national team, which has a lot to do with his future return to Serie A. Declan is rumored to be strengthening Rice, but West Ham are likely to demand £ 100m for his signature. The deal is still in the air.
Conor Gallagher’s loan to Crystal Palace is expected to give him a chance to impress next season as well. Add Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Chek to the list to make the top three midfielders.
But Tuchel’s ultimate goal is to oust Liverpool and Manchester City from the Premier League, so adding a star name to the list is a top priority. At the moment, Chuameni seems to have overtaken them, but Madrid is leading the race to land the 22-year-old, according to The Telegraph.
Monaco are set to demand £ 67 million for the player. With the arrival of Eduardo Camavinga last season, Real Madrid are clearly looking to the future, in addition to Tony Kroos and Luka Modric.
Uncertainty over ownership is unlikely to be of any benefit to Chelsea in the transfer market. Roman Abramovich is still in charge, but the Blues have not been able to agree on a transfer fee or contract under government sanctions.
Selling Chelsea: What did the Rickets family do after the London talks?
The Rickets family is one of four players vying to buy Chelsea from Roman Abramovich
With less than a week to go before the final bid for Chelsea, the Rickets family arrived in London this week for a second round of voting, but they didn’t wait long.
Tom and Laura Ricketts met at the Chelsea level on Tuesday to try to convince members that their vote was better than that of Todd Bohley’s consortium, Steve Pagliuca or Sir Martin Brownon’s consortium. All four parties have qualified for the first round of bidding and must now submit their final bids by April 11.
The Ricketts family has been sharply criticized by some Chelsea fans after Joe Ricketts’ e-mails revealed Islamophobic comments declaring Muslims “his enemies”. Although Joe did not participate in the tender, it provoked protests from supporters who said he should not participate in the review.
However, they are still trying to buy the club from Roman Abramovich. However, according to The Athletic, Tom and Laura Ricketts did not want to sit for long after the final round of talks, and they went straight to the opening game of the baseball season of the Chicago Cubs Major League. Owned since 2009.
This led to criticism from some fans on social media, who said that if the team decided to make a purchase, the Blues would have an extra day left to play in the Champions League against Real Madrid.
Romelu Lukaku has warned Chelsea that he is “the best in the world” ahead of his side’s clash with Real Madrid.
Chelsea host Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.
Romelu Lukaku has previously described Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema as the best player in world football, with Chelsea set to play France in the Champions League tonight.
Chelsea face Los Blancos tonight to stay in the quarter-finals, and Thomas Tuchel’s men are looking to recapture their 4-1 win over Brentford at Stamford Bridge. Despite beating Real Madrid in this competition last season, the Blues have maintained their intellectual advantage.
However, Carlo Ancelotti has scored four goals this season against Chelsea, who are likely to be relegated. With Benzema, Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior leading the way, it’s hard to imagine Chelsea’s backline not being challenged.
Lukaku is already well aware of the threat posed by Madrid’s front lines, especially Benzema. The 34-year-old has scored 34 goals in 35 appearances this season, including eight in seven Champions League games.
Asked about the impact of Lukaku’s Scudetto with Inter Milan ahead of Euro 2020 on his career, he said he hoped all Belgium’s friends would feel the same way soon.
“I really hope that all the other Red Devils: [Thibaut] Courtois, Eden, Thorgan Hazard, [Axel] Witsel, [Kevin] De Bruyne will win the title,” Lukaku told RTBF’s La Tribune by subway. ‘Winning the title with the club gives you the opportunity to gain experience and understand how to cope with the game.
“It gives you this killer mindset. I was a little lacking. I gave up so many times and then I said to myself, ‘Enough, it’s time to change.’ I’m happy now that we’re champions, but I’m already focused on the European Championships. “
When Lukaku was then asked who he thought was the best striker in the world, instead of naming himself Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski, Erling Haaland or even himself, the 28-year-old said: “No doubt, Karim Benzema.”
