Chelsea fans, happy Friday!

The end of the week cometh and in true GMS fashion we’re celebrating in the only way we know how. That’s right, by feeding you the biggest news steadily making its way down the grapevine.

If you’re not laughing at the fact we have nothing better to do then either watch the video above or tackle the text below. It should be to your liking, let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.

Pochettino addresses Kane rumours

Unless you’ve been living under a big rock, you’re likely to have heard reports that Chelsea are plotting to sign Harry Kane in the future.

If not, we addressed the subject in our report yesterday:

Coincidentally Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino was asked about the interest last night, and he said something virtually all fans knew anyway.

Whilst Spurs are happy big clubs want Kane, the England international is going nowhere anytime soon.

"I am happy that a big club want our player - this is because they show they are a top player with top performances. It is good when they are linked," Poch said.

"But Harry, like Hugo [Lloris], wants to stay here. He is one of the best players and he is very happy.

"He wants to grow up with us and try the next few years to try for the top four and win titles with Tottenham. This is his challenge."

Of course, there is a chance Roman Abramovich’s billions could change that at some point, but who are we kidding… Kane isn’t going to be a Blue if Spurs can help it.

Drogba on his eventual return

One man who could be a Blue once more in the future, however, is Didier Drogba.

The Stamford Bridge legend won’t be returning in a playing capacity, but has confirmed he has an agreement with club directors in west London all the same.

That could mean that his glorious homecoming - yes, it will be glorious - may be in the guise of sporting director, a trainer at the academy, an adviser for the strikers or even as manager!

Don’t believe us? He said so himself.

Willian stat

Lastly, we’ve got a neat little stat sure to put a smug smile on the faces of the Blues faithful. And yes, that does mean you if you’ve made it this far through the article.

Willian is statistically the best free-kick taker in Europe at the moment, according to Sky Sports. Better than AS Roma’s Miralem Pjanic, better than Cristiano Ronaldo, better than Lionel Messi.

Here's some of his best from the season:

Of his 11 dead-ball attempts so far, Willian has found the back of the net six times. What’s more, he’s only not hit the target or the woodwork once. Impressive stuff.
