Good morning Chelsea fans
Chelsea secured third place in the Premier League after beating Leicester City 1-1.
Barcelona transfer target Marcos Alonso was on hand to erase Foxes star James Maddison’s early strike.
And the Blues’ stalemate with the Foxes means that even if fourth-placed Tottenham are level on points with Chelsea this Sunday, the west Londoners’ greater goal difference of 18 will be enough to put them a place behind Liverpool and Man City.
Thomas Tuchel is keen to break Man City and Liverpool’s dominance in the Premier League.
The German has told new Blues owner Todd Boehly about his plan, according to the Evening Standard.
And the report says that Tuchel wants Boehly’s financial backing to get his vision off the ground.
Chelsea star N’Golo Kante has cast new doubts on his future at the club.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the France midfielder has brushed off talks about his long-term future.
“He said: ‘The only thing that’s certain is that I still have a year’s contract. It’s not really my concern.
“The only [on my mind] is to end the season well.
“I’ll think about it when the time is right, but I just want to finish the season the best way I can.”
Inter Milan will not be able to buy Romelu Lukaku permanently.
According to reports from Italy, Italian side Lukaku will not be able to offer a loan transfer until this summer.
Italian journalist Guido De Carolis said: “Lukaku can only return to Inter on loan. The Nerazzurri can’t buy him but he can come back on loan.
“That depends on Chelsea and Tuchel. Lukaku doesn’t want to stay with this coach.”
But the reporter insists the loan deal can go ahead as Lukaku is desperate for an Inter return.
Antonio Rudiger says goodbye as he prepares to leave for Real Madrid.
Rudiger was pictured at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital meeting patients and staff.
And the defense attorney arrived with gifts, which he gave out at the hospital, the Daily Mail reported.
