Here is Sunday’s news and gossip concerning Chelsea:
Arsenal are keen on the Spaniard, but Chelsea are hoping this bid should seal the deal.
Baba Rahman’s move to the Blues appears to be close to being finalised, after the Daily Star reported that Chelsea made an improved bid for the defender.
Their latest offer would see Augsburg pocket £17.5m.
Chelsea’s move for John Stones is apparently being held up because of a sell-on clause in the defender’s contract that will see a slice of the fee go to former club Barnsley, the Daily Star suggest.
The League One side are set to pocket 15% of any figure, should the Blues get their man.
Jose Mourinho has issued a warning to his rivals, as he has revealed that he plans to continue managing for another 20 years, the Daily Mirror report.
Should he stick to his plans, he will be calling it a day at the age of 72.
Finally, a former Chelsea boss could be about to link up with one of the Blues’ reported targets, after the Daily Mail reported that Internacional have agreed a £10.5m fee with Leicester City for Charles Aranguiz.
However, the Mail report that the midfielder is not keen on joining Claudio Ranieri’s side.
