Ziyech sends strong message to Man City, £78m winger heading to Chelsea? after latest decision, as Edouard Mendy named 5th best goalkeeper in the world
Hakim Ziyech scored the equaliser as Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 on Saturday.
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea also defeated Manchester City 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-final.
Ziyech has warned Manchester City ahead of the Champions League final later this month that the win at the Etihad Stadium will give Chelsea confidence.
Chelsea will face City again in the Champions League final on May 29.
He told Chelsea’s official website: “It gives confidence of course but in three weeks it will be a totally different game, and three weeks is still long.
“We have some other games to play. When it comes closer we will focus fully on that game.”
£78m winger heading to Chelsea? after latest decision
Dortmund winger and Chelsea target Jadon Sancho has reportedly decided to return to England this summer
Regarded as one of the finest talents in world football, Sancho has developed into a class act over in the Bundesliga over the past few seasons and he is now a player that is tipped to become one of the best in world football.
Sancho has long been a top transfer priority for the Blues, but Dortmund have been equally stubborn in holding on to one of their top young stars. Yet there are reports in the media which have claimed that Dortmund would allow him to leave in the summer for £78 million
And Bild claim the winger is now intent on returning to England, with United and Chelsea the only realistic destinations.
Amid all the speculation that Chelsea will try and make a move for Sancho in the summer window, he has now come out and opened the door to a possible deal by admitting that he does not know where his future is.
“I don’t know about my future,” the 21-year-old told ESPN on Saturday after netting twice in his side’s 3-2 defeat of RB Leipzig.
“I am very happy here in Dortmund at the moment. I love the club, the fans and the team.
“They gave me my first professional start. The fans motivate and push me to the limit.”
Sancho is a player that Chelsea like very much and they will surely be a club that make an official move for the man should he come onto that transfer market in the summer. So with the season coming to a close, it will be interesting to see where Sancho goes.
We would love to see him in the Premier League guys.
