Football News

Chelsea fans, a very good day to you all.

The general buzz is getting louder as we approach the January transfer window, but we’re still far away enough at the moment not to be drowned out by it all.

With that in mind, we’ve got a nice blend of rumours and genuine information. Don’t believe us? Read on, or watch the video above, for more.

Cahill contract

He’s fast approaching 30, but that hasn’t stopped Gary Cahill from pledging his long-term future to Chelsea by way of signing a new four-year deal.

The England international has seemingly looked to get around the Blues’ one-year deal policy for over 30s by committing now rather than waiting around.

With his previous contract having been set to expire at the end of next season, it looks to be a smart move.

Cahill said he was pleased that Chelsea had put their faith in him.

"I have achieved a lot here and I hope I can keep on learning, helping the team and lifting trophies over the next four years," he said.

"I'm really pleased to commit my future to Chelsea and it's great the club has put their faith in me."

Inter in for Ivanovic

Moving on, Inter Milan are preparing a contract offer of their own for Branislav Ivanovic, or so say reports.

It’s purported that the Italian outfit wants to take advantage of the fact that the Serbian can talk to new clubs in the New Year.

Given his worrying form so far this campaign it might not be in the Blues’ best interests to keep him. Let us know what you think, in the comments box below.

Valencia's Mourinho interest

Lastly, they may have only just hired Gary Neville to be their interim boss until the end of the season, but Valencia are already considering the idea of taking Jose Mourinho on next summer.

Yes, you did read that right, the Special One’s performance is still said to be under scrutiny following a woeful beginning to this campaign and The Sun are claiming he is Peter Lim’s number one pick for the Mestalla hot-seat.
