Ivan Perisic regret

Jose Mourinho has bemoaned Manchester United’s failure to sign Ivan Perisic.

Last summer, Inter Milan’s Perisic was one of Mourinho’s top targets after bringing Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof to the club.

But Manchester United were unable to agree on a fee with Inter and Perisic went on to sign a new contract.

When speaking on Russia Today in his role as a pundit, Mourinho was asked about Croatia’s key players and name-checked Perisic and United missing out on him.

“Perisic, he went from Croatia to Borussia Dortmund, goes to Wolfsburg, goes to Inter,” Mourinho said. “I do not know why he did not come to Manchester United when I wanted him.”

  • Gary Cahill has told Gareth Southgate he has no plans to quit international football.

    Chelsea defender Cahill was a late call-up for the World Cup squad and, at 32, he was the oldest member of the England squad.

    He made just one appearance all tournament, in the final group game when the Three Lions and Belgium were both already through and made a raft of changes, but wants to carry on playing for his country.

    And boss Southgate insisted he is still in his long-term plans, confirming: “Gary has a desire to still be involved.

    The vastly-experienced centre-half won his 61st cap in the group loss to Belgium…

    …it was his only game in Russia, but his wisdom was valuable to the tournament’s second-youngest squad

    “He’s a player we really respect. His contribution to what we’ve done, in terms of how he’s been with the group, his training and everything else, has been excellent.

    “We just have to see how he starts the season. He also knows that generally speaking we are looking at some other players. He doesn’t want to finish and I don’t want him to finish either.

    “So we’ve had a really productive and mature conversation about what happens next. And hopefully he has another brilliant season with his club.”

  • Eden Hazard's brilliant response when asked to name his Golden Ball winner

    Eden Hazard believes he is worthy of the best player accolade (Pictuere: AFP)

    Eden Hazard would name himself as the World Cup’s Golden Ball winner after Belgium beat England to third place in the tournament.

    England slumped to a 2-0 defeat to Belgium on Saturday, with Hazard playing a starring role to ensure his side’s best ever finish at a World Cup.

    Hazard has been Belgium’s main man in Russia, orchestrating the attack and chipping in with three goals and two assists.

    Fifa will name the best player in the tournament after the final between France and Croatia play, and Hazard was asked who he would give the Golden Ball to.

    He said: ‘I would give that title to me. But I do not get to choose. I think they will give it to someone playing the final.’

    It seems Kylian Mbappe and Luka Modric seem set to battle it out for the Golden Ball and it may be handed to whoever finishes on the winning side.

    Croatia have never reached a World Cup final while France are bidding to win their first since claiming it on home soil in 1998.

    Modric has inspired Croatia to making history this summer, while Mbappe will be just the third teenager ever to play in a World Cup final.

    Hazard will now take some well-earned holiday before returning to Chelsea.

    As is Croatia’s Luka Modric (Picture: AFP)

    The forward will return to a much changed club after the sacking of Antonio Conte and swift appointment of Maurizio Sarri.

    Hazard’s World Cup display has intensified transfer speculation about his future and it remains to be seen if Chelsea can convince their talisman to sign a new long-term deal.

  • Maurizio Sarri picks Serie A expert as assistant coach over Gianfranco Zola

    Luca Gotti will be Maurizio Sarri’s No.2 (Picture: Getty)

    Luca Gotti will reportedly take on the role as assistant coach to Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.

    The 50-year-old Italian will be brought on as Sarri’s No.2, but club legend Gianfranco Zola will also be appointed to the backroom staff.

    Sky Italia claim Gotti has been drafted in after Giovanni Martusciello turned down the chance to join Sarri in London.

    Martusciello will remain in Italy at Empoli working under Luciano Spalletti, while Gotti is set to exit Italy for the first time in his coaching career and end a seven-year working relationship with Roberto Donadoni.

    Gotti has worked alongside Donadoni since 2011, with the pair most recently taking charge at Bologna.

    Chelsea appointed Sarri as head coach on Saturday after sacking Antonio Conte this week.

    Sarri arrives from Napoli after a long-winded negotiation period between the Italian club and Chelsea over the coach’s compensation fee.

    Zola will return to Chelsea as a coach, but it is unclear what his exact role will be.

    Sarri has less than a month to prepare his players for the new season with Chelsea scheduled to kick off their Premier League campaign at Huddersfield on August 11.



    Chelsea pre-season fixtures results

    Perth Glory (Australia) – July 23

    Inter (France) – July 28

    Arsenal (Dublin) – Aug 1

    Manchester City (Wembley) – Aug 5

    Lyon (H) – Aug 7

    Gianfranco Zola will also join Sarri’s staff (Picture: Getty)

    (Picture: Getty)

    The transfer window will slam shut on August 9, meaning Chelsea will have to work quickly to bring in Sarri’s targets.

    The Blues, however, have already managed to snare one of Sarri’s targets as Jorginho arrived in a £50million deal from Napoli.

    Chelsea star Eden Hazard cast doubt over his future after Belgium beat England on Saturday, but revealed he and his team-mates knew for some time Sarri was going to replace Conte.

    (Picture: Getty)

    ‘We knew already for a while that Sarri was going to become the new manager,’ Hazard said.

    ‘Is a good manager? If he lets me win trophies, yes. Dries Mertens has told me he’s a good coach. We’ll have to work hard. The Italian way, but we were used to that with Antonio (Conte) too.’

    Chelsea will fly out to Australia for their first pre-season game on July 23.

  • Eden Hazards aktier försämrades inte direkt under fotbolls-VM.

    Direkt efter att Belgien bärgat bronspengen öppnade 27-åringen dörren för att lämna Chelsea.

    – Efter sex underbara år är det kanske tid för att utforska någonting nytt , säger han enligt journalisten Kristof Terreur.

    Eden Hazard stod för tre mål och två målgivande passningar under världsmästerskapet som toppades av med en bronspeng efter dagens 2–0-seger mot England. Belgiens första medalj någonsin i ett världsmästerskap.

    Direkt efter matchen började 27-åringen prata framtid.

    Ryktats om Real Madrid

    Enligt den belgiska journalisten Kristof Terreur, på Het Laatste Nieuws, öppnar han nu för att lämna Chelsea.

    – Efter sex underbara år i Chelsea är det kanske tid för att utforska någonting nytt. Speciellt efter det här mästerskapet. Jag kan bestämma om jag vill vara kvar eller gå, men Chelsea tar det slutgiltiga beslutet – ni vet vilken destination jag föredrar, ska han ha sagt.

    Engelska medier har tidigare rapporterat om att Real Madrid ska ha intensifierat sitt intresse för Chelsea-stjärnan. Daily Mail har uppgett att La Liga-jätten förberett ett bud värt 1,7 miljarder kronor på Eden Hazard.

    Belgaren, som kom till Chelsea 2012, sitter på ett kontrakt som löper ut sommaren 2020.

  • Jorginho looked to be off to Premier League champions Manchester City before the Blues hijacked the deal at the last minute.

    And he’s set to be handsomely rewarded for deciding to ditch Pep Guardiola’s side for life at Stamford Bridge instead.

    The Evening Standard report Jorginho has been given a five-year contract worth £102,000-a-week.

    He’s heading to Chelsea along with his former manager at Napoli, Maurizio Sarri.

    The Italy midfielder played a key role in the Serie A club’s success and Sarri will be hoping he can repeat the trick in the Premier League.

  • The Blues leave for Western Australia next Wednesday and will hope Sarri is on board.

    Sarri has replaced Conte as boss before, with a short-lived spell at Arezzo in 2006-07 before Conte was reappointed.

    During three years with Napoli, Sarri’s side finished Serie A runners-up twice. He is yet to win a trophy in professional football.

    Gianfranco Zola, the former Chelsea playmaker, could join Sarri’s coaching staff – if his fellow Italian is appointed.

    The Blues have also been linked with signing Napoli’s Italy midfielder Jorginho.

  • Chelsea kommer få en ny tränare.

    De har bekräftat att Antonio Conte lämnar klubben.

    ”Vi önskar Antonio all lycka i hans framtida karriär”, skriver Chelsea på sin hemsida.

    De engelska medierna rapporterade under torsdagen att Antonio Conte, 48, fått sparken som tränare i Chelsea. På fredagsförmiddagen kom också bekräftelsen från klubben.

    I ett kort pressmeddelande skriver Chelsea att de kommit överens med Antonio Conte om att bryta kontraktet.

    ”Under Antonios tid i klubben vann vi vår sjätte ligatitel och åttonde FA-cup. Under den titelvinnande säsongen satte klubben ett dåvarande rekord med 30 vinster under en 38 matcher lång Premier League-säsong, liksom ett klubbrekord på 13 raka ligavinster”, skriver Chelsea på sin hemsida.

    Sarri väntas ta över

    Därmed får Antonio Conte lämna Chelsea ett år i förtid. Så sent som förra sommaren omförhandlade han sitt kontrakt och satt enligt The Guardian på en årslön på cirka 100 miljoner kronor. När parterna nu brutit kontraktet väntas de ha kommit överens om en kraftig kompensation.

    Flera medieuppgifter gör gällande att det blir Maurizio Sarri, 59, som tar över som ny tränare i Chelsea. Någon bekräftelse från Chelsea har dock ännu inte kommit gällande Contes efterträdare.

    Antonio Conte tog över som ny Chelsea-tränare sommaren 2016 och guidade den gångna säsongen klubben till en femteplats i Premier League.

  • Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis is keen to ensure Maurizio Sarri does not take any more of the Serie A club’s players with him to Chelsea, with midfielder Jorginho due to undergo a medical on Thursday.

    Chelsea have agreed a fee worth up to £57.4million for Jorginho, which is believed to include a compensation payment for Sarri, but Napoli president De Laurentiis will not let the move go ahead until he has assurances none of the club’s other top talent will move to Stamford Bridge while Sarri is there.

    His demands should not hold up Sarri’s arrival much longer but Napoli lawyer Mattia Grassani said: “There was a meeting in Rome at the offices of De Laurentiis, without Sarri. We exchanged views with the English club and the coach’s lawyers.

    “De Laurentiis wants to leave nothing to chance for the time Sarri will be at Chelsea. These are dynamics we have been facing and should be concluded by the end of the week.”

    Chelsea will have to also come to an agreement to pay off current coach Antonio Conte, who has taken the pre-season training since Monday.

    Jorginho has already agreed a five-year contract worth up to £102,000  a week.

  • Jorginho speaks out as Napoli midfielder undergoes medical with Chelsea

    Napoli midfielder Jorginho is undergoing a medical with Chelsea on Thursday ahead of his £57 million move to Stamford Bridge, according to reports.

    Chelsea’s deal to sign the midfielder ahead of Manchester City will also pave the way for Maurizio Sarri to replace Antonio Conte as manager.

    Jorginho was expected to join the Premier League champions this summer but is now heading to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea have submitted a higher offer which acts as a compensation payment for Sarri.

    Sarri did have a £7m release clause in his contract with Napoli but Chelsea had refused to activate it this summer.

    According to the Evening Standard, Jorginho is having a medical with Chelsea on Thursday and has agreed a five-year contract worth £102,000 a week.

    ‘I will miss Napoli very much after four years spent here, I remain forever bonded to this city,’ Jorginho told CalcioNapoli24.

    When asked about Sarri, Jorginho replied: ‘I will greet him for all of you.’

    Sarri is also close to completing his move to Chelsea with one of Napoli’s lawyers confirming that it could be concluded by the end of the week.

  • Antonio Conte kom till Chelsea som en firad tränare. Han vann Serie A med Juventus tre gånger innan han klev på det italienska landslaget år 2014. 

    Efter EM 2016 tog han över tränarrodret i Chelsea där det blev omedelbar framgång. Conte vann Premier League sin första säsong och hyllades för sin taktiska förmåga. 

    Andra säsongen, fjolårets, blev kämpigare för italienaren. Interna konflikter präglade klubben som inte kunde följa upp succén från säsongen 2016/2017. Chelsea slutade bara femma och missade därmed spel i nästa års Champions League. 

    Men man plockade åtminstone en titel, FA-cupen togs hem efter en 1-0-seger mot Manchester United.

    Sarri tar över?

    Ryktena om att Contes lämnande av Chelsea har egentligen figurerat hela säsongen. Redan i januari kom uppgifter om att italienaren kunde få sparken från klubben.

    Men det dröjde betydligt längre än så. Nu uppger Sky Sport att Conte har fått foten från Chelsea efter månader av spekulationer. 

    https://twitter.com/SkySport/status/1017404379115151366

    Ersättaren lär heta Maurizio Sarri, även han italienare. Den före detta Napoli-tränaren har hyllats stort för sin passningsorienterade fotboll och har varit på gång till Chelsea i veckor. 

    Fabrizio Romano, reporter på Sky och The Guardian, skriver att Napolis Jorginho är klar för Chelsea och att Sarri kommer bli officiellt presenterad inom några timmar.

  • Radja Nainggolan rates incoming Chelsea signing Jorginho

    Inter midfielder Radja Nainggolan named Jorginho as one of his toughest ever opponents.

    The Napoli midfielder is closing in on a transfer to Chelsea and is on his way from Italy to London to finalise the deal.

    Chelsea are set to pay £57million for Jorginho in a joint deal that will also see Maurizio Sarri join the Londoners as their new head coach.

    Nainggolan was asked a year ago who he rated as Serie A’s most difficult opponent and the Belgian named Jorginho.

    ‘My toughest opponent? I’d say Jorginho,’ he said.

    ‘He always plays in small spaces, with one-metre passes. It’s difficult to keep up with him or to try to cut out his passes.

    ‘You get very tired because he distributes the ball very quickly yet he remains practically still.’

    Nainggolan’s comment will excite Chelsea fans, regardless of the fact they are now a year old.

    While Chelsea supporters will be thrilled by Nainggolan’s assessment of Jorginho, Manchester City fans might be licking their wounds until the end of the summer.

    City were set to land Jorginho and had agreed a fee with Napoli, before Chelsea hijacked the deal.

    Jorginho prefers living in London over Manchester and will reject the advances of Pep Guardiola to join Chelsea.

    Guardiola made Jorginho his top target this summer and the Spaniard will be bitterly disappointed to see the Italian link up with a direct rival instead.

  • What a difference three years make.

    In 2015, N’Golo Kante was playing in the French top flight with Caen, a club he had helped to get promotion from Ligue 2 the previous season.

    A year later, he lifted the Premier League title with Leicester and reached the Euro 2016 final with France.

    In 2017, Kante was a Premier League winner again with Chelsea, and also a Ballon D’Or nominee.

    This year, he has already added an FA Cup winner’s medal to his growing haul, and on Sunday in Moscow he could get a World Cup one, too.

    (Image: AFP/Getty)

    No wonder the likes of Paris Saint-Germain are refusing to take no for an answer in their bid to land the world’s best defensive midfielder.

    “In these few years, many amazing things have happened to me in football and I really appreciate that,” said Kante, with typical understatement. “Now it’s the World Cup and I really hope we can achieve something together at this stage.”

    Arsene Wenger – left with regrets after twice failing to sign Kante for Arsenal – said: ”He’s an example for all the young players who wanted to become a professional. He was rejected by clubs early on, he has had it hard.”

    The OPTA stats have revealed Kante has so far made 48 ball recoveries at this World Cup — more than any other outfield player.

    Wenger was again impressed on Tuesday, after Kante finished France’s semi-final win over Belgium so relaxed he looked as though he’d “just come out of the bath”.

    Alongside Paul Pogba, the 27-year-old provided such a protective shield for the French backline that even Belgium, with all of their firepower, could not penetrate it.

    Wenger said: ”He persisted. Even in the 85th minute, you feel like he’s just come out of the bath. He’s still so fresh.”

  • Jorginho har den senaste tiden starkt kopplats ihop med en flytt till Manchester City. Den italienske landslagsmittfältarens flytt till England ser ut att bli av – men i stället till London.

    Det är football-italia.net som rapporterar att Napolis president Aurelio De Laurentiis bekräftat att Jorginho går till Chelsea.

    Därmed ser även tränare Maurizio Sarris övergång till Chelsea att bli av.

    Enligt Sport Mediaset betalar Chelsea 57 miljoner euro plus bonusar för Jorginho, totalt drygt 650 miljoner kronor. I priset ingår då summan för att lösa Sarri från kontraktet i Napoli.

  • I går stod det klart att Juventus värvade Cristiano Ronaldo för en dryg miljard kronor från Real Madrid. Nu kan klubben vara på väg att släppa spelare.

    Enligt Mediaset Premium är mittbacken Daniele Rugani, 23, nu på väg att säljas till Chelsea som en del i att finansiera Ronaldo-köpet. Rugani uppges kosta Chelsea 40 miljoner euro, drygt 400 miljoner kronor, att lösa.

    Går affären igenom ser Rugani ut att återförenas med sin tidigare tränare Maurizio Sarri, som han hade i Empoli och som nu ser ut att ta över Chelsea.

  • Despite Sarri’s insistence that Chelsea keep their two star attackers, journalist Duncan Castles says they could be on the move.

    Speaking on the Transfer Window podcast last week, he said: ”Chelsea have gone into this window preparing for the possibility they could lose Eden Hazard and Willian because of their contract situations – both in need of renewals – Willian has two years left.

    “It’s not a case of actively wanting to sell either player, but knowing they are in a potentially compromised position and needing replacements.”

    Chelsea have until August 9 to complete all signings, but can sell to clubs on the continent up until the end of the month.

  • Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa was hoping to use his influence with Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola to bring in some promising young talent to Elland Road and the club had targeted 22-year-old Angus Gunn.

    Gunn spent last season on loan at Norwich but on Tuesday signed for Southampton for £10m on a five-year contract.

    ”The opportunity was there for me to stay at Manchester City but I saw the potential of this club and the squad,” said Gunn.

    ”I think the club has got a big future and I’m looking forward to getting started now.”

  • Jean Michael Seri är en av franska ligans mest upphaussade mittfältare – och med hypen har transferintresset kommit. Klubbar som Arsenal, Chelsea och Borussia Dortmund har samtliga uppgivits ha haft Seri på sin radar.

    Seri på väg till Fulham

    Och 26-åringen ska mycket riktigt till Premier League. Enligt sillygurun Gianluca Di Marzio har Nice kommit överens med serienykomlingarna Fulham. Affären ska ha gått på 200 miljoner kronor – ungefär hälften av den väntade köpesumman. 

    En kupp, om det stämmer. Enligt Nice-Matin finns det dock ingen överenskommelse mellan klubbarna.

    Dean Jones på Bleacher Report fyller i med att Fulham är tryggt förvissade om att de också ska få in svenske landslagsbacken Ludwig Augustinsson inom kort.

  • West Ham and Fulham have also been linked with interest in Seri, as well as Unai Emery’s Gunners.

    However, Chelsea can offer European football, albeit not in the Champions League following their fifth-place finish last season.

    In west London, Seri would be expected to play under Maurizio Sarri, with the former Napoli manager’s arrival seemingly imminent.

  • “Now we want to get back to the top level in the league after a not very good year, and pre-season is an important stage of that,” he told the club website.

    Alonso is back at Cobham after missing out on Spain’s World Cup squad after finishing fifth with Chelsea last term.

    Alonso helped Chelsea to the title in his first season and was a regular again last season in a disappointing campaign.

    Chelsea are due to fly out to Australia on July 23 and Alonso is looking forward to playing on the other side of the world.

  • Chelseas brasilianske försvarstalang Kenedy, 22, lämnade redan under sommaren 2015 Fluminense för spel med Chelsea i Premier League. Han har dock sedan dess haft svårt att ta plats i laget och har i flera sejourer varit utlånad, senast under den gångna vårsäsongen till Newcastle, där han fick mer speltid.

    Det har satt fart på spekulationer om både en permanent flytt och en ny utlåning från London-klubben, vilket nu kan vara på gång igen.

    Enligt Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie, så är backen nu nära en flytt till Newcastle, då han ska besöka klubben i morgon för att genomgå den obligatoriska läkarundersökningen för en utlåning över den kommande säsongen.

    Kenedy har kontrakt med Chelsea över säsongen 2020.

  • Antonio Conte’s brother has hinted that the Italian boss will be staying at Chelsea for the 2018/19 season.

    Maurizio Sarri has long been expected to replace Conte in the Stamford Bridge hotseat after Chelsea failed to qualify for the Champions League last season.

    But issues with Conte’s contract have turned the managerial situation one of the long-running sagas of the summer.

    But Conte appears to have been pictured at Cobham in next season’s tracksuit alongside his fellow coaching staff in a picture that was uploaded on his brother Daniele’s Instagram page.

    He wrote: ”Come on Chelsea Come on Team Conte!!! Chelsea 2018/19.”

    The whole team, which included Conte and his other brother Gianluca, had big smiles on their faces at the training base as they look ahead to the new season.

    There were mixed responses on social media with one person commenting: ”Finally some good news coming out of the club. This pic made my day.”

    While another wrote: ”This doesn’t mean anything, they have to turn up under contract.”

    It is still expected that former Napoli manager Sarri is to take over as manager.

    Chelsea’s players returned to training at Cobham on Saturday and were put through their paces by the fitness coaches.

    It did not appear that a ball was touched in the session, with the players present generally just taking part in gym exercises.

    Alvaro Morata, David Luiz and Cesc Fabregas were among those who returned, having played no part in the summer’s World Cup.

    Ross Barkley, Marcos Alonso and Pedro were also present for the first session.

  • Antonio Conte and his backroom staff were at Chelsea’s training ground on Saturday morning as some of the squad returned to training, according to Sky in Italy.

    According to other reports, Conte and his team did not take the training session, instead attending meetings at Cobham.

    Chelsea’s official website made no reference to Conte, reporting on Saturday: ”The 2018/19 season is up and running!

    ”Our non-World Cup players returned to Cobham this morning, as pre-season got underway on a scorching day in Surrey.

    ”With the World Cup still in full flow, the numbers are diminished, but for those players who didn’t feature in Russia there were plenty of smiles on show as they caught up after a few weeks’ break.”

    Sky In Italy report that negotiations between Napoli and Chelsea over Maurizio Sarri’s appointment as Conte’s potential replacement are in deadlock.

    Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is waiting for an improved offer from Chelsea and Sarri is not in London, as he waits for the go-ahead.

    Napoli are due to start pre-season training on Tuesday, with Sarri remaining officially in charge – although former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has signed a three-year deal to take over.

  • Chelsea go against Antonio Conte's wishes and begin pre-season training without him

    Several high-profile Chelsea stars returned to pre-season training on Saturday, against the reported wishes of incumbent manager Antonio Conte.

    Despite facing the sack, The Times claimed earlier this week that Conte had been planning a grueling summer schedule to ensure his squad was ready for the opening day of the new campaign on August 11.

    A directive was sent to those players who did not participate in the World Cup requesting that they report for duty today, but Conte is said to have reacted angrily and asked for the start of pre-season training to be delayed until Monday, reminding his staff that he is still their boss.

    Chelsea published pictures of Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso and Alvaro Morata among others participating in stretching and running exercises on their official website, but refused to offer any update on Conte’s position, or even clarify if he had attended the session.

    Conte is still adamant that he will not walk away from his role at Chelsea despite a complete breakdown in his relationship with the club’s board as he continues to engage in a high-stakes game of chicken.

    The Italian coach is keen to take a sabbatical, and his £9m pay-off, but Chelsea cannot axe Conte until they have struck a deal for Maurizio Sarri; the former Napoli boss is already believed to be consulting the club about transfer targets.
