Jorginho hints at Chelsea exit, gives reason

Chelsea star Jorginho has raised doubts about his future at Stamford Bridge by admitting he ‘misses’ Naples.

The 29-year-old, who was signed from Napoli in 2018, has also complained about the ‘cold’ London weather.

The Brazil-born Italy international spoke to Canale 21 from his home in London and did nothing to dispel the rumours he wants a return to his old club.

He said: “There are no words to describe how much I miss Naples.

“‘Who wouldn’t miss Naples? It’s so cold in London, they don’t even know what the sun is.”

Jorginho is also still cheering on the Partenopei and tips them for a top four finish.

“I really hope they can get into the Champions League, we’re all supporting them here. Of course they can do it.”

Chelsea eyeing Romelu Lukaku’s stunning return to Stamford Bridge

Reports in England suggest Chelsea are weighing up a stunning move to bring Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge this summer if they are unable to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

A new striker has become a priority for the Blues after watching their front line struggle to hit the mark. Their £53million signing Timo Werner has managed just five league goals since joining last season while Olivier Giroud has four.

Teenage sensation Haaland has emerged as a big target for manager Thomas Tuchel, but Dortmund have reportedly slapped a £154m price tag on him – which could prove too much even for a club of Chelsea’s resources.

Should they admit defeat in their bid to land the Norwegian forward, then they will move their attentions to Inter Milan’s Lukaku, according to the Telegraph.

The big Belgian – who joined Chelsea as an 18-year-old back in 2011 – was unable to convince a handful of managers that he was good enough for the first team at Stamford Bridge. First he was loaned to West Brom and then Everton – with Jose Mourinho selling him to to the Toffees in 2014.

Now 27, Lukaku has proven himself to be one of the top forwards in Europe having netted 87 times in 166 games in Merseyside before securing an £75m move to Manchester United in 2017.

Chelsea making outcast Tiemoue Bakayoko unaffordable for Napoli with price tag

Reports claim Chelsea are pricing themselves out of a deal to offload outcast Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The midfielder was sent out to Napoli on loan last summer and Chelsea set a £15million price tag.

But Napoli are not keen to meet this valuation of the midfielder and it leaves an uncertain future for Bakayoko.

It is possible he could return to Stamford Bridge in the summer but Thomas Tuchel has no shortage of options in his position.

The Frenchman, who cost the club an initial £35m in 2017, has spent the season on loan with the Italian side.

Bakayoko, 26, has been an important figure under Gennaro Gattuso having made 35 appearances across all competitions.

His loan deal didn’t include the option to make it permanent but Chelsea are eager to offload the flop at the end of the campaign.

According to CalcioNapoli24, the Italians would be interested in signing him but want Chelsea to further lower their asking price.

Napoli know his future at Stamford Bridge is all-but over having endured three loan spells away from the club.

He is also entering the final year of his contract at Chelsea meaning he would be available for nothing in just over 12 month’s time.

Bakayoko is thought to be determined to stay with Napoli and will do everything in his power to remain beyond the current campaign.

In January, the player’s agent and brother, Abdoulaye, revealed a permanent switch to Napoli is the ‘priority’.

Chelsea named Premier League team of the decade (Check how Man United, Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal, others rate)

Chelsea have beaten Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool to the Premier League team of the decade.

The International Federation of Football History & Statistics have been crunching the numbers as the 2011-2020 decade came to an end.

Barcelona came out in top as their best club of the decade.

But in England, it was Chelsea that reigned supreme.

The Blues won two Premier League titles, in 2014-15 and 2016-17.

They also achieved their crowning glory in 2012, when they won the Champions League on a dramatic, historic night in Munich.

Chelsea won the FA Cup that same season, as well as in 2018, while they picked up a solitary League Cup in 2015.
