Blues receives clear £600,000-a-week transfer message, Agent drops possible player’s exit, as Pulisic happy to leave Chelsea
Blues receives clear £600,000-a-week transfer message
Juventus vice-chairman Pavel Nedved has insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo will not be leaving the club in the summer transfer window, with reports Chelsea are linked with a transfer move.
Regarded as one of the finest players to ever grace the game, Ronaldo is a man that is classed as global superstar in the game and has pretty much won everything in the game that a player can win at club level.
However, despite the fact that he is the clubs main man, there has been some speculation in the media that a move back to Chelsea may be on the agenda, with reports the Italians may have to sell the Portuguese superstar.
But Nedved has opened up and revealed that the Italians have no desire to let Ronaldo leave in the coming transfer window: “For me, Ronaldo can’t be touched,” Nedved said in an interview with DAZN. “He has a contract until June 30, 2022 and will stay. What happens after that remains to be seen.
“Cristiano, both technically and in terms of image, pushed us towards the peak of football. On a technical level, you can’t fault him. He’s scored more than 100 goals in 120 games and he dragged us into the Champions League.
“We can criticise him – we all have to be open to criticism when we make a mistake – but to question his numbers and what he gives us in every game, for me, isn’t fair.
“He’s a simple guy, even if it doesn’t seem like that from the outside.
“Kids will study his physique and his career. He’s the prototype of the modern player who, with immense talent and a lot of work, has achieved incredible goals.”
Agent of Chelsea midfielder drops hint about possible exit from Stamford Bridge
The agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has revealed that his client would be interested in making return to the Italian top-tier if Napoli make an approach for his services.
The 29-year-old has been a vital player for the West London club since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival as Frank Lampard’s successor, however, the Italy international’s future in London still has been up in the air.
A recent report suggested that Maurizio Sarri would attempt to secure services of Jorginho if the experienced manager returned to the Italian giants as head coach after the end of the current campaign.
Jorge Santos, who has been the agent of Chelsea midfielder, has said that any offer from the Italian giants in the upcoming market would be ‘evaluated’.
“There are many rumours about that because he did so well at Napoli,” Santos told Radio Marte. “It’s a special moment for him. He is an important player for Chelsea now. However, he is an Italy international, and we are thinking about a return to Serie A if he leaves the Blues.
“If Napoli will make an offer, we’ll evaluate it. He had a great time in Naples, and he has many friends over there.”
Jorginho played 160 games for Serie A giants, Napoli between 2014 and 2018 before moving to Stamford Bridge, where he has featured on 126 occasions in all competitions, including 28 games during the 2020-21 season.
Pulisic finally reveals why he’s happy to leave Chelsea
Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is happy to be afforded the chance to leave Chelsea for the internationals.
The 22-year-old has had a tough season so far, with injuries and a change of manager curtailing his playing time.
The American star has admitted that his situation at Chelsea hasn’t been an easy one, but he believes he’d be able to overcome the challenge.
However, he also admitted that he’s pleased to join up his country mates and play for the United States, where he has no pressure to excel.
“It hasn’t been the easiest thing,” Pulisic admitted of his recent club difficulties. “Obviously, I’m a guy who always wants to play, but I think I’m on a really good path.
“I love to take on challenges. I love to, not prove people wrong, but prove myself right in a way. So I’ll just continue to work hard.
“Coming into camp, I’m really just excited to get more minutes and play for my country. Regardless of what’s happening at the club level, I’m just thrilled to be here and I’m excited to represent this crest again.”
