Italian to get £10. 5m Chelsea contract, Tuchel issues big Kante message, Video – World class Chelsea target set for Madrid exit
Tuchel issues Kante message, Chelsea to make Donnarumma offer and Isco considering Madrid exit in Chelsea roundup…
Thomas Tuchel has praised N’Golo Kante’s fitness levels after he helped Chelsea beat Premier League Champions Liverpool.
Tuchel has done an amazing job since he took over at Chelsea just a few months ago and has now gone unbeaten in his first ten games as Blues boss, with his latest result helping the club close in on a top four spot.
Kante created the only goal of the match as Mason Mount slotted home a brilliant curling finish to seal a 1-0 away win at Anfield, and Tuchel has opened up and praised the 29-year old Frenchman, who has been linked with a shock move away from the club in recent weeks.
WHAT DID TUCHEL SAY AFTER THE WIN AGAINST LIVERPOOL
“It was clear from the first second of training what this guy is capable of doing,” Tuchel told reporters ahead of the visit of Carlo Ancelotti’s side. “It’s unbelievable.
“You see his intensity in the physical report after matches and you think they may have tracked two players and put it into the same sheet. He’s unbelievable in what he delivers in terms of intensity, in terms of ball recoveries, his devotion to the group is world-class, at the highest level.
“I am very, very happy he is in our squad. He has come back from an injury so he will not play every 90 minutes before the international break. We will manage him and we do that with the physical coaches.
“We have to take care that he is fit until the international break and when he comes back, we hope he has the momentum where we can rely on him in every game.
“I’m very happy to have him, Jorginho and Kova (Mateo Kovacic) in defensive midfield. This is exactly the level we need to win games. So, I am super happy with all of them.”
There has been some reports that Chelsea target Isco is all set to leave Madrid in the summer, while Gianluigi Donnarumma, Kylian Mbppae, Raphael Varane and Ibrihima Konate all feature in the video below…..
Reports have claimed that Chelsea are set to offer Gianluigi Donnarumma £10.5 million a season to make the move to London
With Thomas Tuchel interested in adding a new stopper to the squad over the summer transfer window, there was alot of speculation in the media which suggested that Chelsea were very interested in signing Donarumma.
Regarded as one of the finest young stoppers in the game right now, and the man to be the next Gianluigi Buffon, Donnarumma is making a real name for himself in the game and has been in the headlines alot over his future, as he simply could not agree a new contract.
That uncertainty meant that there was an opportunity for Chelsea to wrap up a transfer deal, but that massive £80 million asking price and the fact Donnarumma was not sure whether he wanted to move, meant that Chelsea acquired the brilliant Edouard Mendy instead.
That has not stopped rumours that Chelsea may still be interested in Donnarumma, to add a bit of depth to the side, but it seems like they will once again miss out on the chance to sign the Italian big man.
Reports on Italian media have claimed that Chelsea are now ready to swoop in and offer the Italian a massive £10.5 million a season to get a transfer deal done.
The 21-year-old has made 226 appearances at Milan, with his debut coming at the tender age of 16, but the Italian cannot meet his current wage demands, reportedly
Look, the idea that Chelsea could have signed Donnarumma for an absolute bargain is something that would be seen as a real bargain, so the news that he is about to sign a new contract with the Italians will come as a real blow.
In the next couple of years he will develop and become one of the best, so this was the best chance that Chelsea had of signing the man on the cheap, he will cost close to £100 million in the future
