Sky Sports journo tweets Chelsea has already agreed personal terms with a Monaco star

Looks like agent Kante has done the deed!

Chelsea’s resounding form inching them closer towards the Premier League title this season had sparked off rumours regarding Antonio Conte’s big plans to revamp his squad.

A similar story regarding Chelsea’s plans in the summer transfer window was ignited once again by Sky Sports journo Guillem Balague recently, and this one is very interesting too.

Balague claims that Chelsea have reached an agreement at personal level with Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko, although no amount has been discussed yet.

The 22 year-old midfielder has been a target for many top European clubs, but it is being widely suggested that he has already selected Stamford Bridge as his next home.

Bakayoko has been clinical in helping his side top the French league, and has even been called up to replace Paul Pogba in his national team for upcoming games against Luxembourg and Spain.

Check out what Balague had to say about Bakayoko –



Remarkable stat shows what a juggernaut season Chris Wood has had for Leeds United so far

If things pan out as per Garry Monk’s plans, Leeds are clearly on course to stage a return to the Premier League, and there are no two opinions on the fact that striker Chris Wood has been instrumental in this.

The New Zealand international has emerged as the division’s top scorer with 24 goals bagged in this campaign, which include 13 goals from his last 12 games.

The prolific striker is responsible for roughly half of his side’s total goal tally of 52, and boasts of the highest conversion rate (33%) amongst all players in the Championship.

Wood has been a crucial member of Garry Monk’s squad, and possesses immense ability and natural instinct to score valuable goals with the help of his superior and clinical finishing techniques.

And thanks to Squawka’s Kevin Blundell, the importance of Chris Wood to Leeds United this season is greatly reinforced by the following stat –



Celtic skipper Scott Brown showing mad skills to keep possession during Dundee win (Video)

Celtic secured a much-deserving victory to move within one win of their sixth straight title by beating Dundee 1-2 at Dens Park on Sunday.

The home side managed to frustrate their opponents for large parts of the first half, but Jozo Simunovic broke the deadlock for Celtic with a flick that deflected into the goal off Kevin Gomis.

Stuart Armstrong’s header just after half time sealed the game for the Bhoys, and Faissal El Bakhtaoui’s thundering 25-yard strike in the 76th minute couldn’t do much to change the result.

Celtic kept pushing for a third goal till the last few minutes of the game, and leading their charge from the front was captain Scott Brown with his a stunning display of brilliant skills.

Brown was seen luring in Dundee players to absolute frustration with mad ability to keep the ball despite even three opponents closely marking him on one occasion.

Pic: Chelsea man rocks up to Belgium training in rather questionable attire

Chelsea’s resounding form and an almost secured assurance of their seventh Premier League title this season has probably provided some leeway to players for focusing more attention towards themselves.

Perhaps that’s why striker Michy Batshuayi was spotted displaying his unique fashion sense during training for his national side today.

The Belgian has been known to make bold style statements previously, and once even took it to the extent of dressing up as cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants in a bizarre tribute to a popular singer.

Thierry Henry has reacted to the current Arsenal mess like a true legend

It’s no secret that Arsenal’s consistent poor performances this season have prompted Gooners to take matters in their own hands and call for Arsene Wenger’s resignation.

From raising angry chants and banners, to even flying a plane with a clear message during their last game, Arsenal fans have left no stone unturned in letting their disappointment towards the Frenchman known to the club’s management.

But it isn’t just the manager who deserves all the flak, as there has even been prominently visible evidence of players displaying lack of winning mentality and hard work required to grind out results.




And this is exactly what Arsenal legend Thierry Henry had to say to the club’s players. Giving out a strong message, the former Gunner directed his anger at the players rather than the manager.

Check out what Henry said about Arsenal players –

Is the Arsenal shirt too heavy for you? Stop hiding behind Arsène Wenger and be more than mediocre.

The formation at the end of Boro game shows Man Utd are adapting to Jose Mourinho’s style of grinding out results (Photo)

Manchester United defeated Middlesbrough to climb up to the fifth spot on the league with a 3-1 win at the Riverside Stadium yesterday.

Although the result secured United three crucial points before the international break sets in, it is the way Jose Mourinho made his men play that has drawn a lot of attention from baffled fans.

The manager began with the game with a defensive line up consisting of Jones, Smalling and Bailly, with Young and Valencia playing as fullbacks.

Seven minutes after Lingard scored United’s second goal in the 62nd minute, defender Marcos Rojo was sent into the game for midfielder Juan Mata.

Boro’s goal in the 77th minute prompted Mourinho to make an attacking change by substituting Lingard with Martial, but the game only became more and more defensive with every passing minute.

With a victory looming over the horizon after Valencia’s 93rd minute goal, Mourinho completed United’s ultra-defensive 7-2-1 formation with the addition of Darmian for striker Rashford.

A true sign of how Mourinho is instilling the dogged mentality in the squad. Check out United’s formation at the end of the game –

Error 404: Page Not Found

It’s undoubtedly one of the most annoying things we encounter on the internet. You click on a link you wish to access but instead of taking you there, the internet tells you that the page simply doesn’t exist.

If a web user faces a 404 message, there is a chance that he/she won’t stick around long enough to see the rest of the website. But that’s certainly not the case with the official Leeds United website.

No player would like to see his crucial goal-scoring effort being painfully denied by goal-line technology, but Leeds have managed to find humour in this as well.

If you ever happen to come across a 404 error message while accessing the official website of Leeds, you will find your efforts being negated with a picture of a ball just falling short of crossing the goal line.

Doesn’t do tap-ins, only scores belters – Sammy Ameobi’s fantastic brace for Newcastle U23s vs West Ham (Video)

Newcastle United’s commitment towards building a reliable pool of young talent bore fruits one again, as the club’s U-23 squad beat West Ham on Saturday.

The two clubs had faced off in a league encounter at St. James’ Park on Monday last week, but while that ended in a dull 0-0 draw, this Premier League Cup game saw the Magpies secure a thrilling 3-2 victory.

The Hammers went into the break with a goal by Fletcher, but their lead was short-lived after Charman equalized for Newcastle.

Thanks to their captain, West Ham did manage to restore their lead soon and hoped to secure a win, but a young Toon winger clearly had other plans.

Newcastle’s Sammy Ameobi went on to equalize the game for his side by stylishly curling in a goal from 18 yards.

The 24 year-old snatched a win for Newcastle during injury time with a screamer from outside the box that placed the Magpies in the next round of the tournament.

What Jurgen Klopp said about Chelsea after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw v Man City yesterday

It would be an understatement to describe Chelsea simply with mere adjectives referring to their sublime form this season.

Chelsea decided to repose faith in Antonio Conte to erase painful memories of the previous season and restore their past glory, and the Italian manager has more than lived up to their expectations.

Chelsea are almost assured of their sixth Premier League title with 10 points separating them from their nearest rivals, despite ten games still left to play.

It can be safe to say that the only title left to fight for is to decide which team will emerge as the best from the rest, and the acceptance of this fact has made managers of other clubs heap praise on the Blues.

And jumping on the bandwagon this time was Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who had the following to say in praise of Chelsea’s form this season –



Man Utd fan got rugby tackled after running on the pitch to celebrate with the players (Video)

Manchester United crossed a milestone in their history books by winning their 600th Premier League game with a brilliant 3-1 victory over Middlesbrough yesterday.

Apart from three crucial points, the result also helped United climb up to the fifth position and keep their Champions League hopes alive for the next season.

The adrenaline-filled and emotionally-charged nature of the game and Jose Mourinho’s celebration following their third goal during injury time even led to a massive flare-up between the two teams in the tunnel after the final whistle.

And it wasn’t just the visiting team that went mad after the late goal, as a fan decided to join Jesse Lingard and his team-mates for their celebration.

Unfortunately for the pitch invader, though, celebrations were short-lived, as guards nearby absolutely rammed into him and took him away when he tried coming back to the stands, all of which happened amidst wild cheers from the spectators.
