‘Chelsea in the lead’ – Blues out in front to sign star, already made big offer, planning for summer

Corriere dello Sport had a big article in their Sunday Naples edition on the future of Kalidou Koulibaly and the interest he’s been building around Europe.

Chelsea fans will know the Napoli player, he’s been linked with the club repeatedly over the past few years with multiple claims of offers being made and rejected by the Serie A club.

Having reportedly already made a €58m offer for the player, which was rejected, there was a claim in December that Chelsea were already planning a swoop for the summer window.

Last month saw another claim from Italy that Chelsea will return for another try in the next window, and the reports aren’t going anywhere.

Corriere dello Sport say Arsenal and Liverpool are both keen on the central defender, but it’s ‘Chelsea in the lead’.

Despite that, it’s believed Koulibaly is very happy where he is, playing for Napoli and living in Naples, so any offer would not only have to be good enough persuade the club, but also the player as well.

Chelsea FC one step closer to appointing 50-year-old as new manager – report

Chelsea FC have moved a step closer to appointing Max Allegri as their new manager this summer after Juventus lined up Zinedine Zidane as his replacement, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Express is reporting that Chelsea FC are poised to sack Antonio Conte at the end of the season to bering an end to the Italian’s spell at Stamford Bridge.

The same report says that it was expected that Chelsea FC would appoint form FC Barcelona boss Luis Enrique as Conte’s successor.

However, Enrique is said to be still pondering his options and that has prompted Roman Abramovich to look elsewhere for a new Chelsea FC manager, according to the same story.

The same report says that Zidane is set to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season and that he would be keen to take over at Juventus.

And that would “pave the way” for Allegri to move to Stamford Bridge to take over at Chelsea FC this summer.

Chelsea FC are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table after a difficult second season under Conte.

However, the Blues do still have hope of winning a trophy this term, with the west London side set to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-finals later this month.
