Lionel Messi’s Chelsea’s prediction claim, £105m powerhouse makes Chelsea decision, as Courtois sends message to Chelsea
When Lionel Messi hailed Chelsea midfielder as one with a potential to be the best, not many believed in his predictions, and to some ‘he was just Frank Lampard’s son’.
Mount’s game has further developed, and he’s now one of the best players not only in Chelsea, but the Premier League as well.
Messi had spoken highly of Mason Mount last season, as he said: “[He] would have relished facing the inevitable jeers had supporters been allowed in at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night and used it to play even better.”
The 22-year-old has played a key role in Chelsea’s success under Thomas Tuchel this season, and has improved a whole lot since Messi made that statement.
Mount has played a huge role to help Chelsea reach the FA Cup final and Champions League semi-final, and Messi’s prediction has now come to pass. As a matter of fact, we are yet to see how far Mount will go as he has a lot of potential to be better than he currently is.
Chelsea legend Ashley Cole has now hailed Mount as one of the most important players in the Chelsea team.
“He’s a humble boy, a Chelsea fan, living the dream,” Cole told Sky Sports.
“But within that he wants to work hard, he wants to improve, he wants to get better, he wants to score goals, he wants to run for his team.
“He shows that enthusiasm day in, day out. I think that’s what makes him, for me, one of the top players in world football right now, definitely in the Premier League. ‘Of course, he’s vital for Chelsea.”
Romelu Lukaku does not plan to leave Inter Milan this summer after the club’s Serie A title victory, Fabrizio Romano has told chasing Chelsea.
With reports suggesting that Thomas Tuchel has told the board that he wants to add a stopper, defender and striker to his attack in the summer transfer window, there has been many reports linking the club for Lukaku.
Despite being a relative flop in the Premier League during his time at Chelsea and Manchester United, Lukaku has gone on to become the most deadly striker in Seria A over the past few seasons and has netted an impressive 61-goals in just 92 appearances for the Italians.
Those kind of numbers has led to reports that the club have targeted him as a player that could be their main man next season, with reports also suggesting that they are willing to pay his massive £105 million asking price.
However, Romano has come out and told the club that Lukaku has no intention of Leaving Inter Milan in the summer, especially after helping the club nail down their first Serie A title in more than 10 years, and break the dominance of Juventus.
The striker told Sky Sport on Sunday that “he’s really proud to be an Inter player” – and Romano said the Belgium international will stick around for next season amid reported interest from clubs outside Italy.
Look, Lukaku has been brilliant over at Inter and it has been a shock to see we are linked with a move, but this was going to be a deal that the club were never going to get done, he is very happy over in Italian football.
Courtois makes vow to Chelsea fans for calling him a snake
Former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has since been referred to as a snake by Chelsea fans since his move to Real Madrid.
Courtois won two Premier League titles at Chelsea, but left the club in 2018 after demanding a move to Real Madrid.
Chelsea fans were angry to have lost club legend Petr Cech for Courtois, and the manner in which he sought a move was very disrespectful to the club.
Courtois is keen to kick out his former club in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final clash between Chelsea and Real Madrid.
Sources close to Courtois claim Courtois hasn’t been pleased with the names he had been called and the attack from fans, and he wished he could play in front of the Stamford Bridge supporters.
The source told the Athletic: “All the comments he’s read about being the snake will inspire him instead, Going back to Chelsea will be different for him compared to Hazard.
“[He] would have relished facing the inevitable jeers had supporters been allowed in at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night and used it to play even better.”
