Chelsea to make Salah offer, Rudiger makes decision on future and Haaland amids Pressure in Chelsea rounsup…
Chelsea are ready to offer Mohamed Salah that £400,000-a-week contract that he wants from Liverpool, IcFootballnews has learned
Egypt international Salah, whose current deal at Liverpool runs until the summer of 2023, has consistently expressed his desire to remain at Anfield amid ongoing talks over a new contract.
He has become one of the best players in world football during his stay at Anfield and has also become one of the clubs most iconic players in just a a few years, helping the club to Champions League and Premier League titles
In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Salah claimed he was “not asking for crazy stuff” during negotiations with Liverpool which Reds boss Jurgen Klopp insists are “in a good place”.
But he has not yet signed a new deal with the Reds and all the big clubs, including the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, have been keeping a close eye on things at Anfield.
But now IcFootballnews have learned that Chelsea are eyeing up a possible move for Salah
The Blues have been keen on the Egyptian star ever since he came back to the Premier League a few years ago, but have known they have never had the opportunity to prise him away from Liverpool as he had a massive contract with the Reds.
But now his deal is coming down at Liverpool, and the fact he wants £400,000-a-week, is delaying the contract signing, meaning that Chelsea can swoop in and give him the contract he wants
The Blues are still seeking to add that superstar player to the squad that will help them win back that Premier League title, and right now, there arent too many better players in world football than Salah
Antonio Rudiger will not sign a new deal at Chelsea – no matter how much the club offer him, talkSPORT understands.
Rudiger has been a standout performer for Chelsea this season and one of the clubs most important players, but he could leave the club at the end of the season as his contract expires.
It is no secret that his preference would be to stay, but there has been a number of top clubs show an interest in getting a possible deal done at the end of the season, which has left many Chelsea fans shocked at the fact he could leave
Now talkSPORT transfer inside Alex Crook has now provided an update which doesn’t make great reading for Blues fans. Asked if he could stay, Crook responded: “I don’t think so, Jim.
“We know his advisors have been in talks with the likes of Real Madrid and PSG.
“I was told several weeks ago that it didn’t matter how much money Chelsea threw at him, his heart was set on a move to Real Madrid.
“We’ve seen numerous high profile examples – maybe Cristiano Ronaldo the highest of them all – of when a big club like Real Madrid come in for you it’s very difficult to keep them out of their clutches.”
Rudiger is one of the very best defenders in the game and Chelsea would be massive fools to let him leave, we have said that before and will again. So Fans will be hoping that the board manage to get a contract deal done sooner rather than later as there are a number of top clubs eyeing up a potential deal.
As we said, he is one of the best defenders in the game and Chelsea would be fools to let him leave, especially on a free deal.
Chelsea have again been left on alert after target Erling Haaland has admitted that Borussia Dortmund are putting pressure on him to make a decision on his future
Haaland has a contract with Dortmund until 2024 but is understood to have a release clause that can be activated in the summer that would allow him to leave the club for around £65 million, far below his current market value.
That has led to many reports in the media that all the biggest clubs in the game are eager to make a move at the end of the season and offer him a £500,000-a-week contract to leave the Bundesliga side.
It is no secret that Chelsea are long time admirers of the star and are looking at the possibility to adding a new forward to the attack in the summer, especially as Romelu Lukaku hits the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Now, amid all the speculation, Haaland says pressure from Borussia Dortmund to make a decision about his future is proving to be a distraction.: “The last six months, I have chosen not to say anything out of respect for Dortmund,” Haaland told Viaplay.
“But now the club has started to pressure me into making a decision, but all I want to do is to play football.
“But they press me to make a decision now about my future. So that means I have to make a decision soon.
“I have said from the beginning that I want to focus on football, because that is when I am at my best, not when other things come into my mind.
“Now they have put pressure for a while. So it is time to get things started. All I want to do is to play football, but I can’t do that now.”
Look, Haaland is one of the best players in the game and Dortmund want to know if he is staying and will sign a new contract. They deserve to get more than that £65 million he could leave for
