Chelsea fans, hello and welcome.

The week is almost over but the gravy train of breaking news and information never really grinds to a halt.

Today we’ve got plenty of interesting topics to mull over. Read on below for more and watch the video above if you’re just downright lazy.

Wilmots wants Hazard move?

Chelsea supporters looking for a manager to vent their frustrations at - other than Jose Mourinho -might be in luck, as Belgium boss Marc Wilmots is sure to now be at the centre of a controversial storm.

A report in the Daily Mirror claims the coach wants Eden Hazard to leave the Blues in favour of Spanish giants Real Madrid, with Los Blancos thought to be vaguely interested in securing a transfer deal in the future.

Wilmots’ view could have come as a result of Hazard underperforming so far this term, but we’ll stress it’s only at the point of speculation so don’t get too immersed in the rumour.

Matic and Mourinho 'problems'

Meanwhile, Nemanja Matic has underlined that he has no problem with Mourinho following a difficult start to the season.

The Serbian said he would always remain professional and that the Special One could count on him moving forward. So, no problems there then.

Lampard return to England

Rounding us off nicely, Frank Lampard - remember him? - has been invited to train with Manchester City’s first-team during the looming MLS off-season.

That’s right, the Chelsea legend, who has already ruled out a loan return to England, has been offered the chance to head back to the Etihad Stadium and train with the likes of Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany as he bids to get back to full fitness.

As of yet there has been no reports alluding to the idea that Mourinho and Chelsea might match the Citizens’ offer.
