I have done a longer ‘In the Papers’ article as I am away now so enjoy.
Barcelona will make a final offer for Chelsea defender David Luiz, amid reports he wants reassurances about his future from Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
I found this in the Daily Mirror. He knows he is a certain starter as he is one of our best defenders in the team he doesn’t need to go to Barca and play football there he can win all the trophies here in England. I hope he stays.
Jose Mourinho is looking at making a shock move for Samuel Eto’o – if Chelsea fail in their bid to land Wayne Rooney
I found this in the Daily Star. I would love him to join I just don’t think this would come around as I believe eventhough he is still top class I just think he is too old now to adapt to the Premier League.
Barcelona are preparing a second and decisive bid of €35million (£30m) for Chelsea’s David Luiz and are confident of clinching a deal
I found this in El Mundo Deportivo. This is even cheaper than their frist bid, Barca please just go away anything above £50million and we may listen but until then NO!
Samuel Eto’o would be very interested in a move from Anzhi Makhachkala to Chelsea to link up with his old boss Jose Mourinho where they worked together at Inter Milan and Eto’o won his third Champions League Medal.
I found this in the Daily Mail. As much as I would love him to come and play for us I just don’t think he actually could adapt quick enough to the battling style of the Premier League
Kevin De Bruyne believes he is ready to secure a place in Chelsea’s first team after impressing manager Jose Mourinho during pre-season
I found this in the London Evening Standard. I think he can grab a place in the first team I am just not sure whereabouts in the team I say on the wing as he can dictate play better out there where as in the CAM spot he is jumped on instantly.
Blackburn loanee Todd Kane could make a permanent switch to Ewood Park
I found this in Lancashire Evening Standard. I don’t know where this has come from as Kane has said when he was called up to the England squad he wants to earn a first team spot in the Chelsea team, if he puts his head to it and works hard I don’t see why not.
Samuel Eto’o is looking to be Plan B for Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho if he cannot secure the services of Wayne Rooney.
I found this in the Guardian. I would like him to join us but I think he is just too old and his wages are just too much for us too pay. He is at the moment being paied £350k per week after tax.
Chelsea striker Demba Ba, 28, is a target for Sam Allardyce as the West Ham manager aims to secure his sixth deal of the summer
I found this in the Daily Star. No offence to Ba or anything like that but I don’t think he has lived up to the expectation and he only scored 2 goals fo us after his move. I think we should cash in on him before he loses market value, I can definantely see Ba leaving if we bring in a new striker though.
Inter Milan have confirmed the signing of Brazilian full-back Wallace Oliveira dos Santos, 19, on loan from Chelsea
I found this in Tuttosport. This is a very good move for our young right back as this experience to him will be very good and beneficial.
Jose Mourinho is happy that one of his old players he used to coach would like to come back and play for him again.
I found this in the Daily Mirror. I think all managers would like that in the players they have coached and trained over the years. This shows the amount of respect Mourinho has gained over time from players.
Mourinho claims the Blues will not sell David Luiz for any price, regardless of any offers that my arrive from Barcelona.
I found this in the Daily Star. At least we are staying firm about Luiz and that we are not going to sell him. I don’t want him to leave he to valuable to us.

I found this in The Times. He hasn’t been named in Roma’s squad for the beginning of the Serie A season which has fuelled the speculation he is leaving Roma.
Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto’o has told Chelsea he is willing to take a pay cut to secure a move to Stamford Bridge
I found this in The Sun. He will have to take a pay-cut no matter what his wages are just huge £350k per week after tax.
Chelsea are on the verge of giving up of their pursuit of England Striker Wayne Rooney, Jose Mourinho has failed with two bids, he is now considering a move for Anzhi’s Eto’o who played under him at Inter Milan.
I found this in the Daily Star. I hear that all United have to do is accept a bid from us and he will be signing so we will have to wait and see. I would rather have Rooney join than Eto’o just because Rooney is a proven EPL striker whereas Eto’o isn’t and he is also getting pretty old.
Returning manager Jose Mourinho wants to ‘heal the Blue family’ at Chelsea following Rafael Benitez’s spell in charge at Stamford Bridge.
I found this in The Sun. I have been waiting for Mourinho to say something like this since he came back and in fairness it’s been longer than I was expecting. He will make us all happy again, he made us all happy just by coming back, so let’s see what he can do second time around.
Chelsea are set to focus on Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto’o, 32, if their own interest in Rooney comes to nothing
I found this in the Daily Mail. Still would rather have Rooney proven in the PL and at a younger age and less wages.
However, another alternative to Rooney for the Stamford Bridge outfit could be Jackson Martinez, 26, of Porto
I found this in the Metro. People say he is a quality striker and I have seen him and think he is ok I just don’t think he is a Mourinho player, having said that Torres isn’t but he still plays.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will not allow defender David Luiz to leave the club despite Barcelona tracking the 26-year-old
I found this on talkSPORT. Good don’t let him leave. If people are worrying as Luiz is not playing its because he isn’t match fit and has a knock.
Chelsea are still keen on Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala, 22, but face competition from Barcelona
I found this in the Daily Mirror. This has only come about again as Barcelona are interested in Luiz.
Chelsea could be back in for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, who could be sold after playing just two games following his £51m move from Atletico Madrid in the summer
I found this in the Daily Express. This is true about Monaco having to pay tax however they don’t have to sell him.

I found this in The Sun. Mourinho with the mind games I have really missed them.
Wayne Rooney set up two goals in Manchester United’s win over Swansea but the 27-year-old still wants to leave the Old Trafford club, with Chelsea his preferred destination and Arsenal his contingency plan.
I found this in the Sunday Times. Nice of Moyes to get Rooney match fit for us isn’t it?
Chelsea will offer United £40m for Rooney and hand the England international a four-year deal worth £300,000 a week in their latest attempts to sign him. However, if their latest bid fails, the Blues will switch their attentions to Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski, 24
I found this in the Sunday People.That is a statement for intent and shows that Chelsea are really after him, Lewandowski has his heart set on Bayern Munich so that is a bit of a no go.
Chelsea face a battle with Inter Milan and Napoli if they want to bring Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto’o, 32, to Stamford Bridge
I found this in the Daily Star. I can see him going back to Italy as he still haas his house there and he lives there when he is not playing for Anzhi.

I found this in the Daily Telegraph. A lot of players would like Rooney to join us they know his quality well.
Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino has dismissed speculation that the Catalan club will try to sign either Chelsea defender David Luiz, 26, or Liverpool centre-back Daniel Agger, 28, after claiming he is happy with his defensive options
I found this in the Daily Telegraph. Don’t mind him buying Agger off Liverpool he’s a dirty player and I don’t really like him.
Chelsea look set to make another bid for England international Rooney before the end of the transfer window
I found this in the Fulham Chronicle. A bid of £40million is supposedly going to be made sometime this week have to wait and see what will happen.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho has not given up on signing Rooney but Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick insists the Old Trafford outfit’s players want him to stay
I found this in the Daily Star. Yes of course you want him to stay Carrick that’s why he received no praise for his two assist after coming on from the bench against Swansea and no one talked to him after the game.
Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal are all attempting to bring 17-year-old PSV Eindhoven winger Zakaria Bakkali to the Premier League
I found this in the Daily Express. Never heard of him so cannot really comment.

I found this in the Daily Telegraph. I don’t know what this is for but supposedly him and Mourinho talked to all the players about the season ahead and that they expect at least one trophy, and it was about the past decade and he wanted to thank Lampard, JT and Cech for sticking by the team through thick and thin.
