Here is the latest transfer news and gossip making headlines from the camp of Chelsea football club as Captain Azpilicueta is ready to see off his contract while Alonso wants new deal with latest from Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland.
The Blues has been linked with couple of moves over the weeks and month since the taking over of former Paris Saint-Germain manager, Thoman Tuchel who has been unbeaten since making that move to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will be going up against Atletico Madrid tomorrow in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg which will be an away game and his first game in charge of the Blues in Europe elite footballing competition.
HUGE BOOST ON JADON SANCHO CHASE
Manchester United has cool off their interests in signing Jadon Sancho as they are putting all their hopes on Mason Greenwood who recently signed a contract extension, and it might be a blessing for Chelsea who also had interest in the player.
Although no official statement from the Blues camp with the new development but they might be looking at a possible double deal for Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho during the summer window which is fast approaching.
Manchester United have cooled their interest in Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, according to claims by The Athletic which looks likely they can’t afford to make such move with the club current financial situation which might be good for Chelsea.
The England international was a top target for the Red Devils in 2020 which he almost completed the move during the last summer window but unfortunately his club wasn’t ready to let him go as they demanded for £120 million from the Premier League side.
MARCOS ALONSO WANT NEW CHELSEA DEAL
With Thomas Tuchel reviving the faith once lost in Marcos Alonso, the Spanish defender is ready to commit to a new contract despite claims of him leaving the club earlier before the eventual sacking of Frank Lampard few weeks ago.
Marcos Alonso is looking to land a contract extension at Chelsea which will keep him beyond his currently deal after he has found his way back to playing regular in expense of new signing Ben Chilwell who has been relegated to the bench, according to reports from The Sun.
The Spanish full-back appeared to be heading out of Stamford Bridge under Frank Lampard, but has earned a reprieve with Thomas Tuchel calling the shots and now wants to stay and sign a new contract extension to prolong his stay in England.
CAPTAIN CESAR AZPILICUETA COMMITS TO CHELSEA
The Blues captain looks motivated and happy at the moment as he looks ready to commit to the Club and see off his contract until 2022 before discussing a possible extension or leave for free which looks like with age no more on his side.
Cesar Azpilicueta will see his current Chelsea contract expire in 2022, when he reaches the 10-year mark at Stamford Bridge since making the move from Marseille which is a big feat for any player in their football career, after playing for a very long time with Trophies won.
Quizzed on whether he wants to stick around beyond that point, the versatile Spanish defender has told Mundo Deportivo:
“I am very happy at Chelsea. I don’t like to look too far ahead.”
