Romelu Lukaku will reject the advances of Jose Mourinho and Manchester United this summer to seal a dream return to Chelsea for a fee reported close to £100m.
It's a crazy amount of money that would only be offset with Diego Costa leaving Chelsea for around £76m to finally move to China.
Didier Drogba has caused a stir in the media this past week with comments being made of Romelu Lukaku and reports that he will re-join Chelsea at the end of the season.
The future of Romelu Lukaku is, and will continue to make headlines between now and the end of the season after Ronald Koeman confirmed that he does not know if Belgian striker will sign a new contract at Everton or if he is looking to move elsewhere.
According to various reports, two Belgian strikers could be involved in a massive swap deal plus £40m cash this summer as Chelsea look to bolster their attacking options under Antonio Conte.
At this stage we know two things that are certain. Firstly, Romelu Lukaku is looking at life away from Everton next season with his preferred destination being Chelsea as he has claimed to have "unfinished business" here.
According to various reports, Antonio Conte is planning for life without Diego Costa this summer with the Spanish hit man destined for a move to China, and has set his sights on a £56m deal for Romelu Lukaku.
The situation with Diego Costa isn't going to go away and will continue to be spoken of until the summer.
According to various reports in the media, Zinedine Zidane has asked the Real Madrid President Florentino Perez to sign N'Golo Kante this summer.
I have to admit that I am concerned by this because just look at the impact Kante has made in the Premier League over the last two seasons.
It's being reported that Antonio Conte and Michael Emenalo are at odds with each other over two reported transfer targets being linked with the club this summer.
Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku have been heavily linked with a move to Chelseafor weeks now with both looking for moves away from their current clubs for different reasons.
The future of Thibaut Courtois remains under scrutiny with Real Madrid waiting in the wings to approach the 24 year-old Belgian Goalkeeper in the summer. As a result Joe Hart is being lined up as a potential replacement.
That's what reports in the press and the media would have you believe if you make reading the tabloids part of your daily ritual.
Chelsea have a reported £200m war chest to spend this summer and Antonio Conte has identified Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko and PSG's Marco Verratti as prime targets to play next to N'Golo Kante next season.
According to this exclusive report in The Telegraph, Chelsea have stepped up their efforts to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco for a reported fee of 50m Euros (£42.
Diego Costa has finally spoken out over the speculation over his future linking him with a mega-money move to China and has taken a swipe at the media in England.
It's fair to say if we are honest, that none of us expect Diego Costa to remain at Chelsea beyond this season. Having read continued speculation over his immediate future, read quotes coming from China of their intention to make him the highest paid footballer in the world, having witnessed his fall-out with the Chelsea staff back in January and his subsequent goal drought where some Chelsea fans questioned his commitment to the Chelsea cause, you can understand and get sucked into the general feeling that he will leave London this summer.
Romelu Lukaku has taken the unusual step of publicly rubbishing a tabloid transfer rumour linking him with a summer move to Manchester United.
The Sun ran with the supposed news that the Everton striker had privately decided against a returnto Chelsea as he didn't want to be "lumbered with defensive responsibilities" underAntonio Conte's system, ergo leaving United as his preferred destination because they're playing such energetic, dynamic, free-wheeling football at the moment.
According to rumours in the press, Chelsea have moved closer to the signing of £50m Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton by offering Andreas Christensen as part of the deal.
Now let me start by saying to bid and possibly buy a defender for £50m is quite simply ridiculous.
As reports linking Alexis Sanchez with a move to Chelsea intensify, I want to hear from as many Chelsea fans as possible with their thoughts on a possible deal being agreed this summer.
The rumours first started to appear at the time the players representatives had reportedly told Arsenal that they had received an offer near to the £300,000 per week from the Far East.
Kurt Zouma has refused to rule out a possible move away from Chelsea next season as he has one eye on a World Cup call up for France next year.
It's fair to say that the injury Zouma suffered a year ago was devastating for him personally. Having forced his way into the first team as Chelsea stuttered in the Premier League, Zouma became a favourite with the fans and was being selected on a regular basis.
According to various reports, Alvaro Morata has had enough of life in Madrid after his return from Italy, and expected to demand a move to Chelsea this summer.
As reported on this website previously and on the majority of credible websites on the Internet, Morata has become more than frustrated with life in Madrid having to play second fiddle to the likes of Cristano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.
Nemanja Matic is to be rewarded for his outstanding contribution to the Chelsea cause this season with a new contract as Antonio Conte looks to fend off reported strong interest from Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.
What a difference a season makes in football. This time a year ago, Matic had lost his place in the team with the interim coach Gus Hiddink favouring John Mikel Obi ahead of him.
Cesc Fabregas has been at the heart of speculation surrounding his future for most of the season so far and has recently spoken out to reaffirm his commitment to the Chelsea cause.
It's fair to say that Cesc Fabregas has experienced a huge range of emotions since he arrived from Barcelona.
Antonio Conte has albeit confirmed that Branislav Ivanovic is talking with other clubs as he prepares to leave Chelsea before the transfer window closes at 11pm this evening.
Zenit St Petersburg are reportedly in advanced talks with the player after Chelsea gave the Serbian defender permission to speak to them but as with any window, there are others that will also make their interest known.
Reports have suggested in the last 24 hours that Chelsea have had a £34m bid for Celtic striker Moussa Dembele rejected and asked to pay £40m. Is this the end this season for Michy Batshuayi?
Anyone at the game on Saturday or anyone who has witnessed Michy Batshuayi's body language of late will know that he cuts a frustrated figure at Chelsea.
According to various reports, Antonio Conte has identified Dimitri Payet of West Ham as someone who would improve his squad and is preparing a bid of around £40m this month. I'm wondering if the Chelsea fans agree?
First and foremost, it appears that the player himself has his heart set on a move back to Marseille for personal reasons and reports this morning in the media have confirmed that he has agree personal terms with the French club.
As we move deeper into the transfer window, the reports that Antonio Conte wants to bring Fernando Llorente to Chelsea are growing stronger and appear to have substance.
There has been plenty of talk and reaction to Chelsea being linked with the big Spaniard and for the most part (from what I have seen), it has not been very favourable.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is planning to improve his squad in the January transfer window despite recently breaking the club record of 12 consecutive victories in the Premier League.
The Blues are top of the Premier League standings at the time of writing where they have a six-point cushion ahead of second-placed Liverpool.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham are being targeted by newly promoted side Brighton with manager Chris Hughton looking to bolster his squad for their first top flight league campaign in 34-years.
For RLC it's been a disappointing season at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte having started only four games all season with none of those being in the Premier League.
With less than a week of the transfer window remaining, Asmir Begovic could leave Chelsea with Celtic's Craig Gordon lined up as a possible replacement and Ruben Loftus-Cheek joining Celtic on loan until the end of the season.
As we know Bournemouth have had a £10m bid for Begovic rejected by Chelsea last week with reports stating that Chelsea are holding out for £12m AND will sell if they can find themselves a replacement for the Bosnian shot-stopper.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is someone who has become the subject of intense transfer speculation when the window opens tomorrow. Newcastle are prepared to rival West Ham to sign him on loan until the end of the season.
As reported on this Blog a week or so ago, it has been reported that Slaven Bilic is looking to sign the young Chelsea midfielder on loan to bolster the options he has available in his squad in the transfer window but now faces competition from Rafa Benitez at Newcastle who would more or less guarantee RLC regular playing time.
What a season it has been for Chelsea Football Club, the Chelsea Players, the Chelsea fans and for Antonio Conte in particular. The reward? A new lucrative contract from Roman Abramovich.
When Antonio Conte signed on the dotted line to become the next Chelsea manager, he signed a two-year contract worth a reported £6.
According to various reports, Chelsea are planning to tie Antonio Conte down a long-term, lucrative contract to fend off interest from Inter Milan with the promise of substantial transfer funds as he prepares to take a crack at the Champions League with Chelsea next season.
Roman Abramovich has made some cracking decisions over the years since he became the owner of Chelsea Football Club.
According to reports, Antonio Conte has been promised funds to make FOUR key player signings this summer in addition to signing a new extended contract as the club starts planning for life beyond this season.
There are many conflicting reports surrounding the relationship between Antonio Conte and the Chelsea board with recent comment pinpointing differing opinion of Conte to that of Roman Abramovich and claiming that there is a breakdown in communication.
Chelsea are just two wins away from the Premier League title and a possible double this season, the first under Antonio Conte but uncertainty remains over his and a number of players this season.
Do not misunderstand me, our focus is on the next two games this week on Monday against Middlesborough followed by our trip to West Brom on Friday night with two wins securing the Premier League title for the fifth time and our second in three seasons.
Diego Costa has spoken of how his relationship with Antonio Conte was strained this season with talk of a move away from Chelsea but it's not the move you would think it could be.
As with Thibaut Courtois, Diego Costa has been the focus of continuous speculation about his future ever since he arrived at Chelsea three summers ago.
Michy Batshuayi signed for Chelsea for £33m last summer after an impressive season with Marseille and Euro 2016 with Belgium. Eight months on and it looks as though the striker is on his way out of the club having failed to impress here.
When we think of successful strikers in the Premier League we think of those who scored goals on a regular basis, those that come up with magical moments that could turn games on their head and those who took our game to new exciting levels.
It may be six months away but the Premier League transfer window in the summer could become a very busy one for Antonio Conte and Chelsea with some big names being linked with moves away from the club and in as possible replacements.
According to a report in The Sun, Chelsea are willing to let Thibaut Courtois leave the club in the summer to head back to Spain as long as they can sign the man they have identified as his replacement - Joe Hart.
With numerous reports surrounding Diego Costa falling out with Conte, being dropped and linked with a big money move to China, I wanted to take a look at both sides of the story.
Costa's reported lower back injury.
News broke yesterday evening that Diego Costa has had a major bust-up with Antonio Conte in training at Cobham this week and he has been dropped from the first team that travelled to Leicester to take on the Champions tonight.
The Eden Hazard and Real Madrid connection seems to have intensified in recent days with reports that Real are preparing to offer Chelsea a world record £100m for the Belgian playmaker to which Chelsea are to reject without hesitation.
This past week Spanish newspaper Marca wrote a report stating that Chelsea and Hazard would be willing to negotiate which is contrary to reports in England.
Despite Chelsea's planned new contract talks with Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, the general consensus of opinion amongst the press is that Real Madrid are still planning on signing Hazard as their next Galatico with an additional move for Courtois in the pipeline.
Eden Hazard will reject the reported advances of Real Madrid this summer to stay at Chelsea and continue to work with Antonio Conte as he looks to mount a challenge in the Champions League.
Ask any Chelsea fan of their opinion of Eden Hazard and you would find a simple answer, he is the best player at our club and in the Premier League.
According to various reports in the media Eddie Howe is preparing a £30m combined offer this summer for Asmir Begovic and Nathan Ake.
Two things here to start with. First of all it's remarkable really isn't it that we are even contemplating Bournemouth offering that amount of money to anyone!
As far as rumours go between now and the end of the transfer window, this one is a cracker. Chelsea are in for Kyle Walker who has fallen out of favour at Tottenham.
I have to be honest, when I read the report featured here, I thought rubbish, there is no way that Tottenham would ever contemplate letting him go or to be interested in conducting any form of business with Chelsea.
According to reports, Jose Mourinho has made Willian one of his top summer transfer targets having watched him a number of times this season, and is preparing to offer Chelsea £35m for his services.
Initially we read that and scoff based on how badly Manchester United are doing at the moment compared to Chelsea with now guaranteed Champions League football back at Stamford Bridge next season.
Ryan Bertrand is being linked with a shock return to Chelsea having been identified by Antonio Conte as one of his reported transfer targets in the summer.
Bertrand, a Champions League winner with Chelsea, was sold to Southampton for a fee of around £10m a couple of seasons ago as it was clear at that time that he would not feature in the Chelsea first team.
According to various reports, Barcelona have already begun their search for players to bolster their squad this summer and were at the London Stadium on Monday to watch Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic.
As we know Luis Enrique has announced that he is to leave Barcelona in the summer as he takes a break away from football and it seems that the Spanish giants have already identified potential targets this summer as they plan for life without him.
