Ever since Jose Mourinho was sacked, the rumour mill has moved into full swing with all sorts of names being touted to take over at Chelsea. According to reports, that decision has been made and a "fantastic" offer has been put on the table for Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus.
It's believed that a four-year deal has been offered to tempt him away from Juventus this summer and despite being warned against leaving the security he has with Juve, he WILL accept the offer made by Roman Abramovich and take over at Chelsea.
Dan Levene (@danlevene) talks to Rory about John Terry's future at Chelsea and a number of other things affecting Chelsea during this rather depressing time.
It was a horrible injury as you can see in the photo above and we have waited all day to find out the news on Kurt Zouma. Unfortunately, he has confirmed he has injured his ACL and will require surgery which puts him out for the remainder of the season.
Scan today has shown I injured my ACL.
As all sorts of names are being linked with the Chelsea Manager's job this summer I wonder if we already have the answer in John Terry. What do you think about JT as our new manager?
Think of the man who has led this team through the most successful period in our club's history. Think of the man who commands respect of his team mates and his opponents week in, week out in the Premier League.
In addition to the disappointing performance and result against Manchester United yesterday was what looked like a horrific injury to Kurt Zouma. Gary Cahill will now get his chance with Matt Miazga waiting in the wings.
It was only recently that we had heard reports from "Chelsea sources" that Cahill was not happy at not playing regular first team football and that we wanted to leave the club in January.
Thibaut Courtois has spoken after the disappointing draw against Manchester United yesterday and believes that Chelsea should now focus on the Champions League and FA Cup from now on.
Chelsea find themselves seventeen points outside the top four and I think now we all agree that we have little choice.
There is one question that remains unanswered at Chelsea this season and that is the real reason for our dramatic decline from being crowned Premier League Champions last season. Everyone has said they cannot explain it or cannot understand it up to this point.
Speaking this week about his intention to remain in London and that he will back in management when the right opportunity comes along, Jose Mourinho was asked of the beginning of the season and revealed what I believe to be the answer we have all been looking for.
A late goal from Diego Costa produced a well earned point for Chelsea against a good Manchester United side this afternoon. However, I cannot help but feel that we continue to create problems for ourselves!
Guus Hiddink named the same starting eleven as he did against Watford in the week which raised plenty of eyebrows with Eden Hazard being left on the bench.
Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge this Sunday in a crucial fixture for both sides.
The Blues won't be satisfied with their draw at Watford on Wednesday evening having controlled much of the game while creating a host of chances to break the deadline.
Guus Hiddink's side, 13th, are unbeaten since the Dutchman's arrival in December and could make it 10 against a United side struggling to find their rhythm under Louis van Gaal.
News on John Terry's departure from Chelsea at the end of the season has hit hard and still, two weeks since that announcement, I am struggling to come to terms with what this means for Chelsea and the supporters.
Many people who have a naive view of JT would have made remarks such as "About time" or "He's passed it" in the days after Arsenal, and there are many people out there that do not like him as a person which clouds their judgement of what he has become as a footballer.
According to reports, Chelsea have turned down a bid of believed to be £75m for Oscar from the Chinese Super Club Jiangsu Suning. It's a staggering amount of money from the big Chinese spenders having already acquired Ramires and who are about to sign Alex Teixeira the long standing Liverpool target.
The future of Diego Costa at Chelsea has been up for debate since last summer. Now, as Atletico publicly confirm their interest in taking him back, I believe this season will be his last at Chelsea.
Something has never really seemed 100% with Costa here if you think about it despite the impact he made last season and of late under Guus Hiddink.
The two English Premier League betting giants in Chelsea and Manchester United seem to have not lived up to their potential. Chelsea, as the defending champions, were expected to be obvious title contenders, but things went south, prompting the dismissal of coach Jose Mourinho. Even if not leading the league, the fans, plus all major online sportsbook are expecting to see them among the top four for what has become the tradition in English football.
