If you’re a Chelsea fan - which we presume you probably are because you’re reading this - then things must feel pretty sweet at the moment.

Your team is top of the Premier League table, you’re safely through to the Champions League knockout stages, your manager is arguably the best in the business and some of the world’s most gifted players are currently plying their trade at Stamford Bridge.

As a result, it’s entirely possible that Jose Mourinho won’t do any business this month - but that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill from going into overdrive.

Lionel Messi

The big question Chelsea fans want to know is: will Lionel Messi be joining Cesc Fabregas at the Bridge in 2015?

Well Chelsea fans, we’re delighted to say we have an answer! No, he isn’t. Messi, according to a report from Catalonia-based newspaper Mundo Deportivo, will almost certainly not end up at Stamford Bridge. Sorry about that.

Paul Pogba

Before we get to the positive news, we have another depressing update regarding Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

The France international, who Jose Mourinho and every other top coach is understandably a huge fan of, says he still loves Manchester United - despite how poorly they treated him.

Bastian Schweinsteiger

So on to better news regarding Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has surprisingly revealed that he is in no rush to sign a contract extension with the Bundesliga giants.

Chelsea missed out on Toni Kroos last year - but Mourinho will not want to miss out on this world-class star should the opportunity arise.

Aymeric Laporte

The Blues could also be presented with an opportunity to sign highly-rated Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte, with Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal reluctant to meet the player’s £32 million release clause. Dig deep, Roman, and Chelsea will have the perfect replacement for John Terry.

Thorgan Hazard

And finally, Eden Hazard’s younger brother, Thorgan, has not given up hope of breaking into Chelsea’s first team in the near future.

Currently on loan with Borussia Monchengladbach, the midfielder says he dreams of playing alongside his older brother.

All together now: aww.
