£54M man told to make move – Brazilian tells midfielder to get Chelsea deal done – Director hands Boehly £125M boost
Here is a roundup of the top Chelsea news and gossip from icfootballnews that we think you guys may have missed today –
Christian Pulisic has “loads to give” and should be looking to leave CHELSEA, Glen Johnson has told GOAL
Pulisic has taken in over 140 appearances for Chelsea, becoming the first American to grace a Champions League final in the process, but has once again been unable to make an impact on that Chelsea side.
Now – the American star has been told to leave the Blues – as he has too much to offer – former Blues defender Johnson – speaking in association with Lord Ping – told GOAL: “I think he’s a very good footballer, will work his socks off, I think he just needs to play every week.
‘That obviously hasn’t been happening, but I think he’s got loads to give. Whichever team he goes to, he is going to improve that team.
‘I think he has got loads more in the tank, but it’s probably not at CHELSEA
‘He needs to go to a team where he can be the number one name on the sheet every week.
‘That will give him confidence and he can start enjoying his football again. If you’re not playing football, then you’re not enjoying yourself.
‘If he can get back to that, then I think he has got a lot to offer.”
On his good days – Pulisic is a very exciting player to watch a man that can make a real impact – but he simply cant do that in Blues colours for a consistent periodo fo time.
With all the new faces that are expected to arrive in the summer window – it would probably be the best thing if he did leave – he cant just continue sitting on the bench every week can he
BELLINGHAM BOOST –
Borussia Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl says the Bundesliga club are still yet to receive offers for CHELSEA target Jude Bellingham.
Mauricio Pochettino will be Chelsea’s fourth manager in a year, with new co-owner Todd Boehly already axing Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter, before naming Frank Lampard on an interim basis.
Lampard will finish the season with Chelsea while the final touches are put to the Pochettino deal – but it seems that the Argentine boss already has players that he wants to bring to the club.
The TalkSport website has claimed that Pochettino would like to add another number six to the side – especially with Ngolo Kante expected to leave the club in the summer.
The Frenchman is out of contract at Stamford Bridge – and although he would like to stay at the club – it is believed that the new Chelsea board do not want to pay his massive wages and would allow him to depart.
And Bellingham is seen as a player that would offer alot to that CHELSEA side – with his ability on the ball and his energy in midfield something that Chelsea have been lacking this season.
However – it has been claimed that Real Madrid are in advanced talks to sign the England midfielder this summer, with the Spanish club also targeting Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies.
But Kehl says Bellingham is solely focused on Saturday’s game with Mainz, where Dortmund can clinch the title if they match Bayern Munich’s result, and has claimed that no offers has actually arrived yet
“Of course there are rumours but there’s nothing on the table,” Kehl told The Athletic.
“No proposals. All focus on Saturday. I’m sure Jude thinks about nothing else.”
Even though we would love to see him in the Premier League – the right move to make is Madrid – it is a dream switch for many players
MOUNT TOLD TO MOVE –
Former Blues star Oscar has encouraged Mason Mount to Leave CHELSEA if he is not happy.
Over the past few seasons – Mount has been a big part of that Chelsea side and a player that has won the clubs player of the season on a number of occasions.
But with all the troubles that Chelsea are facing this season – there has been alot of rumours that Mount is one player that the club are willing to let leave at the end of the campaign.
Now – amid all the speculation that he could be leaving the club – Oscar has opened up and suggested that Mount should leave the club if he is not happy at Stamford Bridge
Speaking on talkSPORT, the Brazil international said: “I think when you have a difficult season, not only for Mount but for the team, it’s hard to talk about the players.
“When you have a difficult season, a lot of people think that the players don’t deserve to stay in the team anymore. But I think Chelsea have a lot of good young players.
“Sometimes it’s better to keep these players and see if the coach wants these players for the team. Maybe he [Mount] can come back to play at the level that he can play at.
“Of course, he wants to play and he wants to play more.
‘I think if he’s not happy at CHELSEA, sometimes it’s better to find another team. If he’s still happy and if he wants to try and be a great player at Chelsea, he needs to stay.”
Mauricio Pochettino is coming to the club and may give Mount a fresh chance in the side.
But we would not be totally shocked to see him depart the club
