Happy Friday, loyal Chelsea supporters. The end of the week might no longer promise a weekend packed full of Premier League action, but what it does promise is a continuation of breaking news and gossip.
If the latter is what you’re after then you’ve landed on the right page. We’ve been working our fingers to the bone in an effort to concoct a roundup worthy of your time, and we do believe the finished product should be enough to sate your appetite over the course of the weekend.
Read on below to cast an eye over the stories we’ve selected for today’s Chelsea roundup, not forgetting to leave a comment in the box below.
With Petr Cech’s future as a Chelsea player looking less and less certain by the day it’s safe to say the club are expecting to go through a transitional period between the sticks.
“The best goalkeeping coach ever. I learned everything from Guy,” he said.
"I never had this with other goalkeeper coaches.
"I have given his number to Chelsea and even said that he is available. He can help goalkeepers get better.”
What’s more it’s now believed that the Blues’ current goalkeeping coach, Christophe Lollichon, could be moving to Arsenal with the Czech international, leaving Thibaut Courtois somewhat in the lurch. Well don’t fret because the young Belgian has already got a preferred option in mind for Lollichon’s replacement, as he’s urging the Blues to sign up Guy Martens.
Courtois revealed he had learned everything he knows from Martens and has also given Chelsea his number. Talk about being keen. Having said that the 22-year-old has proven in recent years that he’s a reliable option in between the sticks, and the Blues might be inclined to trust his judgement.
Remy asking price set
In other news the Blues have set the asking price for Loic Remy at a relatively modest £15m. The French international is below Diego Costa in the pecking order and according to reports thinks that the incoming Radamel Falcao will be preferred as well. Needless to say he’s considering an exit.
Just where he might end up remains to be seen, although there’s sure to be a host of Premier League clubs ready to fight for his signature if it’s confirmed in the coming weeks that he is to leave The Bridge.
Last but not least we can deliver the news that Chelsea could well strike up an unofficial partnership with Ludogorets Razgrad, according to the club’s new manager Bruno Ribeiro. Ribeiro grew up with Jose Mourinho and lauded the pair’s brotherly-like relationship in a recent interview.
The Portuguese coach then said that he expects Mourinho will loan him Chelsea players. One wonders if The Special One shares the same view.
