Italian closes in on Chelsea move after Abramovic contact, Brazilian sends transfer message after sealing Chelsea deal, Rodgers ready to make Chelsea move and stunning Havertz claim made
Lucas Piazon has blasted Chelsea for loaning out him SEVEN times in nine years after he finally left the club earlier this transfer window.
Chelsea have been in the headlines alot over the past few weeks about players that could arrive, and players that could be leaving over the next few weeks, with Piazon a name that is no longer wanted at the club.
The forward is somewhat of a forgotten man at Stamford Bridge with his only Premier League outing come in the memorable 8-0 win over Aston Villa back in December 2012, but is his time at the club is now over
He has now agreed a move away from the club on a permanent basis and has joined Portuguese side FC Braga on a long-term contract, a deal that finally sees him depart the club after many seasons of loans and transfer speculation.
And after sealing his move away from the Bridge, Piazon has hit out at the club for loaning him out seven times, Piazon told Oh My Goal: “We [the loanees] would come back and go to pre-season with the new coach, and new players were coming in from the summer.
“They were always like, ‘if you do well the coach might keep you’. But deep down inside we knew we didn’t have a chance because they were paying big money for the players and the club would definitely use them.
“In the beginning I felt Chelsea really wanted me and really wanted me to do well and come back. “But after the third or fourth loan, I knew it was just maybe business.
“The pressure on you to perform is huge because you are from Chelsea.”
Adrian Durham believes Brendan Rodgers could leave Leicester in the middle of their title charge if Chelsea come calling.
Despite having one of the very best squads in the Premier League, Frank Lampard has come under intense pressure over the past few weeks and he is in real danger of getting the sack if results do not pick up over the next few weeks.
And that has led to reports in the media that Rodgers is a man that Roman Abramovic would like to add to the Chelsea set-up, especially since the former Celtic manager has turned the foxes into one of the best sides in the Premier League.
But While Leicester and Chelsea are heading in markedly different directions, Durham suggests Rodgers could jump ship for Stamford Bridge if offered the job this season: “I’m looking at Brendan Rodgers, and with him being a coach there before, he looks like a perfect fit,” Durham said on Drive.
“That’s not me trying to get Frank Lampard out of a job, but Brendan Rodgers is a perfect fit for Chelsea. “When you consider he left Celtic when they were on the brink of a treble-treble, he won’t mind at all.
“If someone says to him, ‘This is the salary we’ll offer you, this is the transfer budget, this is the ambition we’ve got’.
“That’s where Brendan Rodgers wants to be, in among the elite. Will he achieve that at a sustainable level at Leicester? Possibly, but it’s less likely.”
Former Chelsea defender Robert Huth has accused the Blues dressing room of being ‘too nice’ to Kai Havertz.
The 21-year-old, who signed for Frank Lampard’s side for £70 million in the summer, has scored just one Premier League goal in 20 games so far this season, despite the fact that he is one of the most gifted young players in the game right now.
Many have wondered why he has not been as impressive this season as he was last season in the Bundesliga, but Huth, who played for Chelsea’s title-winning sides in 2005 and 2006, believes the German’s teammates need to start getting tougher with him.
He told Stadium Astro: “I just don’t like his body language at all, he looks a bit lightweight. It’s his first year, but he looks like he’s not bothered at times. He loses the ball, gives it away and doesn’t work back.
“It is a difficult time to come in with no fans, but you just want to shake him. We used to have Mahrez in our changing room [at Leicester] who got a lot better, but the team took care of him by saying ‘you can’t just do one side of it or 10 minutes of the game’.
“Maybe Chelsea lack that internal leader or leaders where that conversation happens. It’s not always a nice conversation to have when you’re not performing well, but it needs to happen.
“He needs someone to tell him what it takes to play in the Premier League. Maybe the whole changing room is a little bit too nice.””
Roman Abramovic has already contacted Max Allegri about a role at Chelsea, and after the club lost to Leicester City, Frank Lampard is closing in on getting sacked.
Frank Lampard was handed a massive transfer kitty in the summer in order to revamp the squad and make this Chelsea side capable of winning that Premier League title ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
But despite some good performances from the Blues, Lampard has seen his job come under intense pressure over the past few months, as he simply cannot get the results that Abramovic would like, and Allegri is a manager that he is reportedly keen on.
Allegri left Juventus just a few seasons ago after leading the club to his fifth straight Seria A title, and has reportedly set his sights on making the move to the Premier League, with some reports even claiming that he is already learning English.
Recent reports have claimed claimed that Abramovic has started planning for life after Lampard and has already made contact with Allegri about a move to the Bridge, although the report also suggested that he will give Lampard some time before ousting the club legend.
But after spending that massive amount of money in the summer, and after seeing Chelsea lose again in midweek to Leicester City, and after seeing the Blues fall nine points behind the leaders, the Russian is reportedly closing in on a deal for the Italian.
Look, at the end of the day, this Chelsea squad should be winning games and if Lampard cannot get the results that the club demand, then it is time for a change, and soon, before they lose ground on a top four spot too. And Allegri would be a very good move to make by the club
