Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly entered the race with Liverpool, West Ham and Stoke to snap up Dynamo Kiev's Andriy Yarmolenko. The 24-year-old winger is much coveted across the Premier League, especially by Potters boss Mark Hughes, but Abramovich believes he can edge out the competition, as per Gary Jones of the Daily Star: Potters boss Mark Hughes has stepped into the race and is willing to pay £12m. The Ukraine international is ready for a switch to England and the Blues owner has moved to cut out the competition by sounding out Kiev over the details. It's understood Yarmolenko would prefer a move to the Stamford Bridge outfit but wants regular football. Yarmolenko's desire for regular football may cause Abramovich problems in his negotiations as Chelsea's squad depth is such that he would likely get many more games elsewhere. Furthermore, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers could also be a competitor for Yarmolenko's signature as he is a long-term target of the Anfield outfit, which last year fa ...

Latest transfer rumours :) (Linzi) Rafael Benítez had better buy himself a new baseball cap sharpish. Forget Napoli, Rafa, because you're going to Stoke, who are eyeing up the Spaniard after parting company with Tony Pulis, everyone's favourite entertainer. Sure, Benítez has spent the past few months working with Eden Hazard and Juan Mata, but could he really turn down the chance to work with Ryan Shotton and Andy Wilkinson? If he does, though, the foolish man, Stoke will turn to Wigan's Roberto Martínez, who will hopefully spend his time trying to turn Robert Huth into a ball-playing centre-half, Glenn Whelan into a playmaker and Cameron Jerome into a False Nine. Although some might say Jerome has already mastered that art. Also on Stoke's radar are Gus Poyet and Mark Hughes. One man who's definitely not off to the Britannia Stadium is José Mourinho, who's close to sealing his move to Chelsea. His arrival at Stamford Bridge could be bad news for David Luiz, with Mourinho not convinced that the Brazil ...
Quarter-final classics With Chelsea next on the agenda for United in the FA Cup, we take a look at Sir Alex's record in the last eight of the competition. Sunday's clash will be the 13th at this stage for the boss since he replaced Ron Atkinson at the Old Trafford helm. Here's our shortlist of the five top last-eight ties... which one was your favourite? 1994: Charlton (H) 3-1 This home clash en route to a first-ever Double was far from straightforward following Peter Schmeichel's sending off. The Dane was dismissed for handling outside his box at the end of the first half but Les Sealey came on and the 10 men still triumphed with Mark Hughes, at the second attempt, and an Andrei Kanchelskis double seeing off the Addicks, who replied through Carl Leaburn. 1999: Chelsea (A) 2-0 After a goalless draw at Old Trafford, many predict the wheels would come off the Treble bid at Stamford Bridge. However, Dwight Yorke volleyed past Ed Goey early on and then added a superb second close to the hour-mark. Peter Schme ...
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge hopes the beginning of a “telepathic” understanding with Luis Suárez will make their partnership one of the most lethal in Premier League history. Sturridge already has his sights on matching pairings that have entered English folklore such as Andy Cole with Dwight Yorke, or Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry. Liverpool’s trip to Manchester City on Sunday also offers an opportunity to offer the champions a reminder of what they missed when Sturridge walked out as a 19-year-old to join Chelsea in 2009. At the time, the club – then managed by Mark Hughes – felt his wage demands were excessive for a teenager. Having stalled at Stamford Bridge, the move to Anfield offers a chance for the 23-year-old to start afresh, banishing the suggestions of materialism which have shadowed him at previous clubs. With three goals in five appearances, Sturridge is confident he has already proving his value. “It’s always a weight off your shoulders if you start quite well. It h ...
Queens Park Rangers defender Jose Bosingwa wants an £8million pay-out to leave the club after falling out of favour with manager Harry Redknapp. QPR vs Man United tickets still available Bosingwa was brought in by former boss Mark Hughes on a free transfer from Chelsea in the summer, ended a four-year spell at Stamford Bridge. He put pen to paper on a three-year contract worth £65,000 a week and played 11 times in the opening months of the season, scoring once. Source: Daily Mail But the Portuguese international right-back was omitted from the first-team following Redknapp’s appointment as successor to Hughes and was fined two weeks wages after refusing to be a substitute for December’s Premier League game with Fulham. The 30-year-old, who has since been isolated from first-team training and is currently sidelined with injury, has not appeared for the club since being fined. He has been made available for transfer but Premier League strugglers QPR have yet to receive an enquiry about the defender. B ...
QPR striker Djibril Cisse could be on his way out of Loftus Road with Lille ready to offer him a way out of the Premier League relegation fight and a move back to France. French international Cisse was signed for £3million from Lazio last season by former QPR boss Mark Hughes and played a significant role in keeping the club in the Premier League as he scored six times in eight games. But he has fallen out of favour since the arrival of Harry Redknapp with the current QPR manager ready to sell the enigmatic striker, according to L’Equipe newspaper, to make funds available to bring in some new faces. Cisse, who made his name with Auxerre before having spells with Liverpool and Sunderland in the Premier League as well as Marseille in Ligue 1, has scored just four times in 19 games this season. Redknapp has been linked with a move for Former Arsenal and Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka, who is currently playing his football in China, and another ex-Stamford Bridge forward Solomon Kalou, now playing at Lille ...
Derby delight should inspire QPR to narrow triumph over West Brom. Wednesday's incredible success at Chelsea will provide Harry Redknapp's side with a welcome boost that should enable them to see off the Baggies at Loftus Road. What a difference a game can make. After last weekend’s abysmal display in the 3-0 defeat at home to Liverpool, when the match was all but over after half an hour, QPR managed to pull off a major shock on Wednesday evening when they beat Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. A Shaun Wright-Phillips strike midway through the second half proved enough to secure all three points for the Rs, just their second win of the season, and their first victory on the road since they saw off Stoke City under Neil Warnock back in November 2011. The win also ended a run of three successive defeats for the Hoops and saw them record only their third clean sheet of a season which hasn’t gone quite to plan following a flurry of big-name signings during the summer under previous boss Mark Hughes. Despite ...

Mark Hughes has snubbed a Premier League suggestion for QPR to form a guard of honour for Chelsea on Sunday as an alternative to the cancelled pre-match handshake. The Premier League bowed to pressure to abandon the handshake ritual on Thursday night, ahead of this weekend's West London derby at Stamford Bridge to avoid any chance of it affecting Blues captain John Terry's upcoming racism trial. Sunday's match will be QPR defender Anton Ferdinand's first trip to the home of his side's arch-rivals since October's reverse fixture, after which allegations emerged he had been racially abused by Terry, something Terry categorically denies. QPR boss Hughes admitted he was surprised at the league's suggestion his players applaud their counterparts onto the pitch before the match kicked off. He said: "They were looking for solutions for the game at the weekend and the Premier League were throwing things out there and said at one point that one alternative would be to form a guard of honour and clap Chelsea onto t ...
