The arrival of Fernando Torres at Chelsea has cast doubts over the Ivorian’s future, who had been seeking a two year extension to his current deal at Stamford Bridge, but now has become a target for MLS sides.

No Neymar interest.

The Chelsea manager was in the stands as the striker inspired his country to victory last weekend against Scotland, but has now confirmed the club are not going to bid for the Santos striker.
‘He is very young and a fantastic talent but at the moment we are not interested,’ said the Italian before the club’s draw against Stoke on Saturday.
Neymar indicated last weekend he favours a switch to London after a host of clubs admitted interest, but then retracted by saying he wanted to stay in Brazil.
