Chelsea ‘confident of Kounde deal’, Blues in Antony transfer talks, Rudiger latest

Hello Chelsea fans

The bidding parties at Chelsea have been invited to Stamford Bridge for a final round of talks.

The Telegraph says representatives of the three remaining bids will be in London this week for a final roll of the dice.

Chelsea and Raine, in charge of the sale, will each listen to final offers of £2.5billion as they focus on a winner.

LA Dodgers owner Todd Boehly, Boston Celtics chief Stephen Pagliuca and British businessman Sir Martin Broughton lead the three remaining groups in the running to replace Roman Abramovich.

Chelsea legend John Terry has been left baffled by the club’s decision to let defender Antonio Rudiger go.

Responding to the news, the former Blues captain said: “How did we let this man go”, accompanied by three emojis with covering faces.

Chelsea star Jorginho believes VAR is to blame for his horrific miss against West Ham.

The midfielder, 29, inflated his lines in the 86th minute after Craig Dawson was sent off for a foul on Romelu Lukaku.

Jorginho said: “That kind of pressure, especially in games like this when you have to win and it’s at the last minute, and you try to isolate your mind from all that pressure even though it’s difficult.

“And then you have VAR, so it takes longer, it’s harder to stay focused.

“What you have to do and what I try to do is I try to isolate my mind from all that pressure, and unfortunately this time it didn’t work.

“When you have that little moment of doubt, that’s usually when you make the mistake. Maybe I’ve had too much time to think about it, I don’t know.

“This time it happened like that and I’m sorry. I feel bad because it’s not a pleasant feeling.
