German announces he wants to be at Chelsea, Bayern address rumours superstar could make Chelsea move, Tuchel told Ronaldo to leave Juve, Chelsea urged to ditch Werner and sign big striker
Pulisic wants to stay put, Bayern make Lewandowski claim, Chelsea told Ronaldo to leave, Chelsea told to sell Werner in Chelsea roundup…
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has moved quickly to rubbish any suggestion that Chelsea target Robert Lewandowski will leave the club at the end of the season.
Lewandowski is on the brink of breaking more records this season, as he closes in on 40 Bundesliga goals in 2020-21, but there has been alot of rumours that he could actually leave the club at the end of the season.
Chelsea, who will be in need of adding a striker to the attack in the transfer window, are just one of a number of clubs that are reportedly keeping a very close eye on his situation at Bayern, and are ready to make a move should he leave.
However, despite all that speculation, Bayern have no need to consider offloading Lewandowski as the talismanic presence is tied to a contract through to 2023, and Rummenigge says there is no chance of him leaving the Allianz Arena any time soon.
“Sure he stays. Who sells a player that scores 60 goals a year?” Rummenigge, chairman of the executive board at Bayern, told Sport1.
Look, He is showing no sign of slowing down, having hit another 46 goals across all competitions this season, and has spoken of a desire to play on for at least another five years. So the rumours that he could leave have been a shock to see in the media.
He is one of the very best strikers in the game, and Bayern would be silly to let him leave the club. So unless something sensational happens in the summer, Chelsea will not be seeing Lewandowski arrive at the club.
But they will need to add a striker to that attack in order to win a trophy or two
Christian Vieri has warned Juventus that “Cristiano Ronaldo will leave and many others will follow him”, which will alert the likes of Chelsea.
The domestic crown has been snatched away by Inter, another early Champions League exit has been suffered and there is now plenty of speculation to suggest that key men – such as five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo – could soon head for the exits in search of a fresh challenge.
Now, amid all the speculation, Vieri believes defeat against Inter this weekend will end top-four ambitions and spark a mass exodus, The former Bianconeri striker told Bobo TV: “For me, Inter will win in Turin and Juventus won’t play in the Champions League next season.
“Without Champions League football, Ronaldo will leave and many others will follow him, Juventus will face a severe financial crisis.
“It will be a dramatic failure and many players will leave.”
Ronaldo has faced much criticism about not helping Juventus win that title and Champions League crown this year, but they simply do not have the good players to help the great achieve his goals.
Any number of teams around the world would be happy to buy into Ronaldo’s ability and profile as he approaches the final 12 months of his current contract, and Chelsea are one of those clubs.
They have wanted to sign Ronaldo for many seasons now and as they seek to add a world class striker to the attack to compliment that quality in youth they have, he could be a very good option to sign.
However, we would be shock to see him back in the Premier League, as a move to China or the MLS is much more lucrative. But it will be interesting to see where he ends up if he leave Juventus.
Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has dismissed rumours he could quit Stamford Bridge this summer.
Regarded as one of the most exciting young players in world football, Pulisic has been plagued by injuries since his move from the Bundesliga just a few seasons ago, and he has struggled to make a real impact on that Chelsea side.
And because of that, The United States international has found himself in and out of the side under Thomas Tuchel and admitted to being “very frustrated” in being left out of big games in recent weeks, which has led to speculation that he could leave the club at the end of the season.
However, Pulisic says he isn’t going anywhere and is “up for the challenge” of proving himself in west London, When asked whether he saw his long-term future at Chelsea, Pulisic told ESPN: “Yeah, I’m obviously happy here. It has been an incredible two years.
“People have always doubted and said: ‘Oh, he’s not playing, does he want to go here, does he want to go there?’ I’m always up for a challenge, I love competing, I love the position I’m in and I’m enjoying my time here.”
Pulisic has started just 11 of 26 games in all competitions since the German’s arrival at the end of January and it is very easy to see just why he has been linked with a move away from the club.
But at the end of the day, the winger is a very good talent that will come good, eventually. SO if Chelsea have the patience to see him reach his best, they will be rewarded as the young man is a very special player.
Chelsea have been told to give up on Timo Werner and go out and sign a striker in the transfer window.
Big things were expected from Werner following his £47.6million move from RB Leipzig having scored 34 goals for the German club last season, and many clubs tried to secure his services in the transfer window.
However, The 25-year-old has been a source of frustration to many Chelsea fans this season with just 12 in all competitions from 49 games, and he has not looked anything like the player that was so amazing last season.
Former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor believes Thomas Tuchel needs someone who can turn up in the big games: “I’ve tried to give him the benefit of the doubt as it’s his first season, but the more I’m seeing of him he’s making the wrong decision,” Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.
“He picked the ball up, running at two defenders and takes a wild shot over the bar when it’s best to make a pass and another run.
“He seems a bit too erratic and Chelsea, with their history with the likes of Didier Drogba and the strikers they’ve had in the past, they need to go out and buy a big, big striker who can score goals and turn up in the big games.”
Werner is a very gifted player that should become one of the very best strikers in world football, so the fact that he has not been able to establish himself at Chelsa is a massive shock.
Chelsea should sign another striker and find a way to include Werner into the team, he is not good enough to be a 30-goal Premier League striker right now
