The Portuguese insists that the Blues will not be signing the Barcelona superstar, despite his recent revelation that he may not finish his career at the Camp Nou, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claims rumours linking Barcelona's Lionel Messi with a move to Stamford Bridge are "obviously" false. Messi sparked the rumour mill into overdrive recently when he appeared to suggest that he might not finish his career at Camp Nou. CHELSEA LATEST 8/1 Chelsea are 8/1 with Paddy Power to be Lionel Messi's next permanent clubPremier League leaders Chelsea were subsequently identified as a possible destination for the Argentine superstar - who has broken the all-time goalscoring records in both La Liga and the Champions League in the last week - while Manchester City are also monitoring his situation.

‘Now I understand why at the the age of 19, 20 or 21 he was the Arsenal captain. He is not the captain here because we have a different philosophy, but his personality and his profile is fantastic. His brain is connected to my brain during the matches. Chelsea manger Jose Mourinho has hailed Cesc Fabregas after his hot start to life at Stamford Bridge, and admits that the Spanish midfielder’s professionalism has exceeded even his own high expectations. Owing to his time in charge of Real Madrid, Mourinho was thought to have a tense relationship with the then-Barcelona star prior to this summer, but the Portuguese boss jumped at the chance to bring him back to England when it became clear that his services were no longer required at the Camp Nou. Arriving in June for £30 million, after Arsene Wenger opted against re-signing him for Arsenal, Fabregas has since been in fine form on the other side of London, recording a remarkable eight assists in 10 total appearances, moving Mourinho to praise not just ...
A couple of days after Jose Mourinho claimed Cesc Fabregas was not too keen on joining Arsenal with Chelsea, his new club, being his first choice, Arsene Wenger would not be drawn on those comments, suggesting all parties involved in the major summer transfer were happy. Arsenal were thought to be favourites to land Fabregas from Barcelona after it became clear the midfielder would be ending his three-year stay at the Camp Nou. However, Wenger, with midfielders left, right and centre at his disposal, decided not to pursue the former Arsenal captain's signature, despite having first-choice, allowing Chelsea to swoop in and complete what could be a decisive signing. Mourinho claimed getting Fabregas to join Chelsea was quite easy, alluding to the fact that the Spain international was not open to a switch back to Arsenal, the club which turned him into a world-class footballer. When asked about Fabregas' transfer to Stamford Bridge, Wenger was a little cryptic. "I think people came out and said he wanted to ...
Cesc Fabregas signed for Chelsea from Barcelona on 12 June 2014, putting pen to paper on a five-year contract. A versatile, technically gifted midfielder, Fabregas has acquired a wealth of experience from playing in two of the strongest leagues in Europe and representing the most successful Spain international side of all time. Comfortable operating as an attacking midfielder, he can also perform in a deeper role, and on the international stage he has been used in wide areas, as a second striker or, on occasions, as a 'false no.9'. Fabregas arrived at Stamford Bridge following a three-year spell at Barcelona during which he helped the Catalan club win the La Liga title, Copa del Rey, Spanish Super Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup. He is no stranger to the Premier League having enjoyed an eight-year spell with Arsenal prior to moving to Camp Nou. His time in north London was an important period in his development, during which he made the transition from being a young, inexperienced player to a ...
Chelsea have announced the signing of Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, leaving Arsenal fans livid with the deal. Rumours surfaced over a possible move a couple of weeks ago, with the Spaniard said to be surplus to requirements at Camp Nou, but many expected Barcelona to wait until they wrapped up the signing of Croatian Ivan Rakitic before allowing Fabregas to leave. However the Blues today announced the arrival of the former Arsenal man, 10 days after the departure of club legend Frank Lampard, for a fee thought to be around £27m. The 27-year-old has been handed the number four shirt at Stamford Bridge, signing on a five-year deal. And Gunners are not happy with the deal, especially as it appears boss Arsene Wenger turned down the opportunity to bring him back to the Emirates. ‘Firstly I would like to thank everyone at FC Barcelona where I enjoyed three wonderful years. It ...
NEWS FABREGAS LATEST Could Cesc Fabregas be one of those targets? Well, according to the Metro, Chelsea are now leading the race for the Barcelona midfielder and are willing to hand him a £200,000-a-week deal. Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and former club Arsenal have all been linked with a move for the Spain international who has been told he can leave Camp Nou. Transfer Talk: Chelsea to offer £200,000-a-week VELA TO Real Madrid?! Reports earlier today claimed Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela was on the verge of rejoining Arsenal, who can sign their former player for £3.25 million due to a buy-back clause in his contract, but ESPN now says he is set to join Champions League winners Real Madrid. COSTA MOVE HALTED? According to the Daily Star, Chelsea have been told by Atletico Madrid that it will take over £40 million to sign both Diego Costa and Filipe Luis, which could slow down the completion of Costa's move to Stamford Bridge despite passing a medical on Wednesday. John Terry TO I ...
Atletico Madrid are genuine contenders for the Uefa Champions League trophy, judging from the ways they humbled a trophy hungry Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and the ease with which they earned a draw at the Camp Nou against a determined Barcelona side that had a season of trophylessness staring them in the face. Their consistency and dynamism worry me, and I urge Real Madrid to not take them for granted come 24th May. Madrid must not miss this once-in-a-decade opportunity to lift this season's trophy. We will not forgive them especially after missing the opportunity to win the La Liga.

BREAKING: Eden Hazard SET FOR BARCELONA MOVE! Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo is reporting that Chelsea winger Eden Hazard is set to join Barcelona in the summer transfer window. The Belgian was publicly criticized by boss Jose Mourinho following the Champion League exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid and it appears his long-term future at Stamford Bridge is in doubt. And with the Blues reportedly looking to cash in on their star player, Barcelona are prepared to offer him an escape route from London. The Catalans desperately need high-profile signings following a very disappointing season and they are ready to pull all the stops to lure Hazard to Camp Nou. Barcelona are planning to send scouts to England to finalise the deal. The player himself is reportedly interested in a switch to Barcelona, where his attacking qualities would be properly utilized. Hazard, who has compared himself to Barca LEGEND Lionel Messi in the past, is reportedly one of their number one targets - with Barca seeing him play ...

CHELSEA DAH MULAKAN LANGKAH UNTUK DAPATKAN Pep Guardiola ROMAN ABRAMOVICH will make Pep Guardiola a ‘take it or leave it’ £18 million-a-year deal to become Chelsea’s next manager in the summer. Owner Abramovich is willing to make the former Barcelona coach the world’s highest-paid boss. He has not given up hope of bringing Guardiola to Stamford Bridge, even if he has to fight a four-way battle with Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Manchester City. Abramovich will offer Guardiola £54m over three years – more than double the salary of Sir Alex Ferguson, who is the highest-paid manager in British football at £7.6m a year. Abramovich, who is currently on holiday in the Caribbean, is understood to be furious about Wednesday night’s damaging 2-0 defeat in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final against Swansea at Stamford Bridge. Interim manager Rafa Benitez’s job is safe for the moment, but the Spaniard, appointed until the summer, has no chance of getting the job permanently no ...
Lampard was pivotal in the semi-finals of the 2011–12 Uefa Champions League against the heavily favoured defending champions Barcelona. Bookmakers had Barcelona on the shortest odds to win a second consecutive Champions League title, and various commentators opined that Chelsea would have to produce their best two games of the season - and hope that Barca played their worst two - in order to upset the Catalan giants.[79] In the first leg at Stamford Bridge, Lampard stripped Lionel Messi off the ball then played a cross-field pass to Ramires who setup Drogba for the only goal of the game giving Chelsea a 1–0 advantage.[80] In the second leg at Camp Nou, Lampard assumed the captaincy after Terry was sent off early in the game. Down 2–0 to Barca just before half-time, Lampard assisted Ramires' goal with a through-pass which levelled the aggregate score at 2–2 while putting Chelsea ahead on away goals. Chelsea teammate Fernando Torres added another goal in stoppage time to give Chelsea a 3–2 victory ...
Chelsea midfielder Ramires has expressed his delight at being the only Brazilian to be included in the European Team of the Year by respected French publication L'Equipe. Ramires played an integral part in helping Chelsea to glory in the Champions League and FA Cup last season and has been in impressive form for the Blues so far this campaign. The 25-year-old scored 12 times for Chelsea last term, including a memorable strike against Barcelona at the Camp Nou, and the Stamford Bridge star has spoken of his pride at receiving recognition from L'Equipe. "I was very proud when I received the news that I was in the selection in this year's L'Equipe team, an honour to be part of this select group of players and a pleasure to represent football in Brazil," Ramires told Super Esportes. "I’ve really lived a magical year with winning the Champions League. I thank my fellow family, friends and all who support me. Having this recognition is rewarding and gives me even more motivation to move forward." Ramires may ...
CHELSEA RUMOURS According to Portuguese source Abola Chelsea will fight Juventus for Barcelona forward David Villa. The West London side continue to pursue the experienced Spanish international who may well be keen on a Nou Camp departure due to the fact that he is by no means guaranteed a first team spot under boss Tito Vilanova and talk of an apparent falling out with Argentine Lionel Messi may well play a part in a possible exit from the Catalan giants. The former Valencia man hasn’t made the biggest of impacts since his move to the Spanish giants from Valencia and a long term injury further stifled his progress at Barcelona and there are perhaps two good reasons why the 30 year old could be open to a move to a move to Stamford Bridge. CHELSEA RUMORES Según Portugués fuente Abola Chelsea peleará Juventus El delantero del Barcelona David Villa. El lado oeste de Londres continuará con la experiencia internacional español, que bien puede ser interesado en una salida Camp Nou debido al hecho de que ...

Outgoing Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola has given Liverpool and Chelsea hope by confirming he is open to approaches this summer. Guardiola will step down as Barcelona chief at the end of the season, and it was expected he would stay out of the game for at least a season in order to rest. However, the Spanish boss, a reported target for the Anfield and Stamford Bridge clubs, has revealed he would be willing to return to football sooner than had been anticipated. "For the next months I have to charge my batteries," he said. "I will rest and I will wait. I will be ready, if one club wants me, if they seduce me, I will train again." Guardiola won three successive La Liga titles at Camp Nou, lifting the Champions League trophy in 2009 and 2011, as well as subsequently winning the FIFA Club World Cup on two occasions. He revealed last month that he was to leave Barcelona, citing the stress-inducing pressures of the top job at one of the world's leading clubs. Assistant Tito Vilanova will take over from him next s ...

Diego Maradona says he would not be surprised to see Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola taking over the reins at Chelsea. - Blues keep Di Matteo in dark - Gourlay: Di Matteo must wait - Johnson: What's at stake on Sunday On Saturday, Guardiola's men were held to a 2-2 draw in his final league game in charge before leaving the Camp Nou in order to take a one-year sabbatical. Meanwhile, Chelsea are yet to offer interim manager Roberto Di Matteo a permanent deal, leading Argentina legend Maradona to suggest Guardiola may be lured to Stamford Bridge. "Pep Guardiola, a brilliant coach whom I admire, has announced that he will take a sabbatical in front of an emotional home Barcelona crowd. But don't be surprised if he quickly resurfaces at Chelsea, should Abramovich make him a huge offer," Maradona wrote in the Times of India.

John Terry issued an immediate apology to his Chelsea team-mates for the red card which left them facing a backs-to-the-wall battle against Barcelona. The Blues skipper was given his marching orders by referee Cuneyt Cakir in the first half of their Uefa Champions League semi-final second leg for a blatant knee into the back of Alexis Sanchez. But despite their numerical disadvantage, the Stamford Bridge side hit back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Camp Nou and progress 3-2 on aggregate. Goals from Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta either side of Terry's moment of madness put the Catalan club in control, only for Ramires to put the Blues back on top with a sublime chip shortly before half-time. Lionel Messi then fired a penalty against the bar early in the second half and later hit the base of the excellent Petr Cech's post, before substitute Fernando Torres sparked scenes of jubilation with a breakaway strike in added time. Terry, who will now miss the 19th May final through suspension, admitted after the ...

Chelsea and Barcelona's recent rivalry reignited at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, but it began in 2005 as Jose Mourinho and Frank Rijkaard clashed over accusations that the Barca manager had spoken to referee Anders Frisk at half-time. The two games - culminating in a wonderful 5-4 win for the Blues on aggregate - were quickly overshadowed by events off the pitch that turned the clubs into two of the most bitter rivals in European football. Before the turn of the millennium, Chelsea and Barcelona had only ever faced each other in one competition, the 1966 Fairs Cup semi-final, when a Joaquim Rife-inspired Barcelona side won out 5-0 in a replay after the first two meetings had finished 2-0. Barca went on to win the competition and, coming as it did in the Real Madrid dominated mid-1960s, it was a rare trophy for the Blaugrana. Little did anyone know that the rivalry between Barcelona and Chelsea would brew less than half a century later. Before Roman Abramovich had ever considered making a move to Lo ...

Barca enjoyed their customary lion's share of possession, with Iniesta and Xavi at their instrumental best, but Alexis Sanchez, Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Buquets all missed glit-edged opportunities to score an away goal.

Must say today's result from the UEFA Champion's League Semi Final between Chelsea FC and FC Barcelona was intense. Chelsea won 1-0 at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea's house.

For the record, I am going to be neutral for this semi-final, for these are both my teams.
Chelsea produced the kind of "perfect'' performance Roberto Di Matteo had demanded to inflict Barcelona's first Champions League defeat of the season and give themselves real hope of reaching the final. The Blues once again proved the nemesis of the team feted by many as the greatest to play the game thanks to an amazing smash-and-grab display in the semi-final first leg at a jubilant Stamford Bridge. Interim boss Di Matteo's plan paid off spectacularly, Didier Drogba scoring the winner to go some way to burying the demons of the sides' last meeting three years ago. As well as being magnificent to a man in carrying out the instructions of Di Matteo, Chelsea also enjoyed the kind of luck that deserted them in 2009 and which they have had in spades since the Italian took charge. They may need plenty more at Camp Nou on Tuesday to reach their second final after Barca missed a glut of chances after dominating possession from start to finish. The pattern of the match was set the moment the visitors kicked off, ...
