Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery has revealed that as many as five clubs attempted to sign him when Louis van Gaal was in charge of the Bavarians in 2010. Chief amongst his suitors were said to be Chelsea. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has defended the recent form of Cesc Fabregas, insisting that he remains a key part of his team despite the Spaniard's recent performances. Mourinho says that he won’t drop Fabregas, and insists the midfielder is playing ‘wonderfully’. And finally Chelsea are set to beat Manchester United to the signing of highly-rated Fluminense forward Kenedy after allegedly agreeing a £6 million deal for his signature.
