Serbia starlet claims interest from Chelsea

The 19-year-old midfielder, who was brought through Red Star Belgrade’s academy, is also being monitored by Manchester United and PSG, according to reports

Red Star Belgrade midfielder Marko Grujic claims he is wanted by Chelsea.

The 19-year-old was brought through Red Star’s academy and is reportedly being monitored by Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

“Nemanja Matic is a friend, he plays for Serbia and has played for Chelsea for over a year,” Grujic told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “He has told me that they want me.”

Grujic also admits that he has spoken to Inter assistant and former Serbia international Dejan Stankovic about a potential move to the Serie A club.

“He [Stankovic] called me three weeks ago and Tuesday we will talk after the game against Slovenia. He told me to continue playing like I have been because Inter are following me,” Grujic said.

“At the end of the season I will go to Milan to talk to them [Inter]. It is a possible destination.”

'Ronaldo AND Mourinho will join PSG'

The Real Madrid superstar has long been linked with a move to the French capital, along with the Chelsea manager, and David Ginola believes the pair will both move to Ligue 1

Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho will both join Paris Saint-Germain, according to former France international David Ginola.

Ronaldo’s future has been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent months, with reports over the weekend suggesting that Real Madrid could be willing to sell the Portugal international.

PSG have long been mooted as potential suitors for Ronaldo, given their considerable financial muscle, and Ginola believes that the 30-year-old will join the club this summer, as he “needs a new challenge”.

 “I see Ronaldo being in Paris next year,” he told BT Sport.

“Because they have the money and in terms of the challenge to win the Champions League.

“I know the Qatari investors would like to have Ronaldo at the club, no matter how much it will cost, they will pay for it.”

Goal understands that, despite Chelsea’s abysmal start to the season, Mourinho leads a shortlist of potential replacements for current manager Laurent Blanc – along with Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger – and Ginola believes that the Portuguese would be tempted by a move to France.

Ronaldo’s countryman held discussions with the Ligue 1 side two years prior to Blanc’s appointment and Ginola added: “I can also see Mourinho as the next manager of the team. So I think there’s going to be a lot of Portuguese in Paris.”

RUMOURS: Messi prefers Arsenal move… but wants £600k per week

The Barcelona star is keen on a switch to the Premier League, with the Gunners his first choice, but his lofty wage demands look set to put a host of sides off

Lionel Messi remains keen on a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal his preferred choice according to the Daily Star.

The Barcelona star is keen to leave Spain behind after his recent tax issues, and though he would not be adverse to joining any of England’s biggest sides, the Gunners are his first choice.

However, the Argentina international is demanding £600,000 per week, which it is claimed would put off even the wealthiest of clubs.


RUMOURS: Ronaldo blasts Benitez’s reign at Real Madrid

The Portugal international’s relationship with the Spaniard is reportedly at breaking point, while the club’s president is even prepared to sell the 30-year-old

Cristiano Ronaldo’s working relationship with Rafa Benitez has taken another drastic downturn, according to a report in Spain.

El Confidencial claims that in a meeting with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, Ronaldo said of Benitez: “With this coach we will not win anything”.

Perez is believed to be unhappy with Ronaldo over his constant quotes about his future and possibly leaving Madrid. Perez has reportedly confessed to some of his most trusty directors: “If anyone pays the release clause, let him go and be done with it”.

The report also claims that the 30-year-old barely has any communication with Benitez and that he was hurt by the fact that no one from Madrid – not even the club’s director Emilio Butragueno – attended his film premiere.

El Confidencial also reports that Ronaldo has told those closest to him he doesn’t get on with Gareth Bale on or off the pitch and that he prefers to have Karim Benzema by his side rather than the Wales international.


Fabregas reveals the real reason behind his Barcelona exit

The 28-year-old has lifted the lid on the circumstances behind his departure from his boyhood club which paved the way for his move to Chelsea

Cesc Fabregas admits the discontent he felt from Barcelona’s supporters played a key role in forcing his move to Chelsea.

Having spent three seasons at Barca following his return from Arsenal, the 28-year-old made the surprise decision to join Jose Mourinho’s side in a £30 million deal in June 2014.

Fabregas scored 42 goals in 151 matches during his time in Spain but the midfielder admits the struggle to win over fans with his performances led to his exit.

“I treated the people of Barcelona well,” Fabregas told Marca.

“But at the end I realised that the majority of Barcelona fans didn’t like me anymore, and so I had to make a step aside.”
