LAU ABIDING CITIZEN
Barcelona have reportedly offered Chelsea target Lautaro Martinez a contract worth around £170,000-a-week to join in the summer.
The 22-year-old has attracted a lot of interest with his performances for Inter Milan – managed by ex-Blues boss Antonio Conte.
According to Nicolo Schira, Martinez is Barcelona's first-choice signing going into the summer.
But Inter will hold out for his full release clause, of around £97million.
MAKING A PAS
Serie A side Atalanta are hoping to make Mario Pasalic's loan from Chelsea permanent this summer.
The 25-year-old is a little known figure at Stamford Bridge, despite having been with the club for six years.
The 12-cap Croatian international has never played a first-team game for the Blues – but has impressed while out on loan.
And according to Il Giorno Atalanta have a £13.2million option to buy Pasalic permanently… but want to bring that figure down.
The coronavirus lockdown has led to many taking drastic measures and cutting their own hair, and one young football fan has now found himself with the wrong Ronaldo barnet.
Cristiano Ronaldo has had plenty a popular do over the years, be it with blonde highlights, a top knot or a classic slicked-back look.
It is no surprise therefore that fans want to emulate the Juventus star's look.
But one youngster found out there is more than one Ronaldo when asking to have his hair cut.
TikTok user 5leetie posted a clip of the lad showing off the photo he wanted to copy, making it clear he was seeking a haircut “like Ronaldo”.
Little did he know, his sneaky barber dad was intent on pranking him, proudly proclaiming: “There's only one Ronaldo!”
Social media users were left chuckling at the clip, including Chelsea assistant coach Jody Morris who posted it to his Instagram.
Disgraced former star Robinho has lifted the lid on why he made his record-breaking £32.5million move to Manchester City.
It was after Real Madrid snubbed Chelsea because they started selling replica shirts with his name on BEFORE he had signed.
Everything was agreed on the deal but before it was completed the Blues printed Chelsea shirts with Robinho's name emblazoned on them in preparation for selling tens of thousands in their store.
This angered the Spanish giants.
Robinho, 36, revealed in an interview with Spanish media outlet Marca: “My goal was to go to Chelsea. But Real Madrid ended badly with them.
“They didn't like Chelsea selling shirts with my name on them before the deal was concluded.”
CAL SANCH OUT
Chelsea starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi has called on rumoured Blues target Jadon Sancho… to play him at Fifa20.
Speaking to MOTDx, the teenage England international said: “Listen, do you know who I’m calling? I’m calling this person on purpose because he always thinks he’s better than me but he knows he’s not. I’m calling Sanch. Jadon Sancho.
“I’m waiting for you to play me right now. I don’t care where you are, what you’re doing, you need to play me. Make sure you’re ready. Every time I speak to him I’m like, 'Oi, Sanch, let’s play FIFA' or he’ll be like, 'Cal let’s play' and I’m always like, 'Ah I’m doing something' and he’s saying he’s doing something.
“We never get to play, so now I’m telling him, listen, I’m ready. Let’s play, let’s go. I’m ready for you now. Make sure you get this on stream, everything, make sure it’s live so everyone knows what’s happening. It has to be there.”
