Monday

Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is close to joining Wolfsburg, according to the Bundesliga club

I found this in the Daily Mirror. Supposedly selling him for 30million plus, I think this is a really bad idea but with the World Cup coming up KdB wants to play so he can go

Manchester United are refusing to give up on signing Juan Mata this month – and are also weighing up a bid for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal

I found this in the Daily Star. I would rather we not sell him to United rather sell him back to a club in Spain and not one of our League’s rivals

Chelsea have made a £25million move to bring Benfica’s Nemanja Matic back to Stamford Bridge

I found this in the Daily Mail. Means we make a loss of 22millions on him but he is a player that is needed.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he will not be dipping into the January transfer marker for a new striker

I found this in The Guardian. Rumours are around that he wants to try for Rooney again but we will have to wait and see

Bayern Munich are set to rival Paris St-Germain and Napoli in the race to sign Chelsea attacking midfielder Juan Mata, 25

I found this in the Daily Express. I don’t want to sell him he is a great player and needs more of a chance

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is keen to sign 19-year-old St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma as a long-term replacement for John Terry

I found this in the Daily Express. He is promising but he showed his dark side with a 10 game domestic ban for violent conduct.

Tuesday

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes Eden Hazard can become one of the best players in the world if he stays in the Premier League

I found this in the London Evening Standard. I think he can easily become one of the best in world

Mourinho insists the league is Manchester City’s to lose this season and that it would be his finest triumph if he leads Chelsea to the title

I found this in the London Evening Standard. More mind games Mou and they could possibly work

Wednesday

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has shown his faith in manager Jose Mourinho by allowing him to decide whether the club offer Frank Lampard, John Terry and Ashley Cole new contract.

I found this ini the Daily Express. He wants them to be role models for the younger players and he wants to keep them as his spine of the team.

Mourinho, meanwhile, claims to have “inside information” that all is not well at Manchester United, although the Old Trafford club’s manager David Moyes is not under pressure

I found this in the Daily Mail. More mind games

Chelsea could sell 26-year-old centre-back David Luiz to Barcelona for 35 million euros (£29m), after having rejected the Catalan club’s earlier offer of 25 million euros (£21m) last summer

I found this in the French paper Lefigaro. I hope we don’t sell him for that much, he is worth a lot more

Thursday

Chairman Nicola Cortese’s departure from Southampton could open the door for Chelsea to make a renewed bid for 18-year-old left-back Luke Shaw

I found this in the Daily Express. We should take advantage of this and look at Ward-Prowse and Luke Shaw and try to get for cheaper

Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are preparing for a bidding war over Shaw, who is valued at £20m. Offers are also expected to be received for striker Jay Rodriguez, as well as central defenders Morgan Schneiderlin and Dejan Lovren, all aged 24

I found this in the Daily Telegraph. We are his favoured destination so we are in line to get his signature

After failing in a bid to sign John Obi Mikel, 26, Napoli boss Rafael Benitez hopes to sign another Chelsea midfielder, 31-year-old Michael Essien

I found this in the Sun. I don’t mind Essien going as much now as we have Matic but he has always been a loyal servant to Chelsea

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard, 23, believes he can emulate Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and win Fifa’s Ballon d’Or

I found this in the Evening Standard. I believe he will win the Ballon d’Or in the future, believe Oscar could win it as well but that would only be if he played out of his skin for a whole year which is difficult as Brazil do not play as many games as European Countries which makes it difficult for them to have a consistent year.

Friday

St Etienne youngster Kurt Zouma, 19, claims he has spoken on the phone to Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, dealing a blow to Liverpool and Manchester United’s chances of signing the defender

I found this in the Daily Express. He is good and young but has a temper we have to be careful.

Southampton have slapped a £30million price tag on teenage star Luke Shaw

I found this in the Daily Star. This still won’t deter us from him and the fact we have loaned out Bertrand make’s my belief even stronger that we are going for Shaw

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has earmarked scoring sensation Diego Costa as his major summer signing

I found this in the Daily Star. I hope we don’t overpay for him that is all but we have youth players and players out on Loan who could do the job easily.
