See reasons why Chalobah leave Chelsea

According to sports reporters, Chalobah first joined the Blues at the age of 10 and has captained both their reserve and youth sides, but made just 10 appearances last season after returning from his latest loan spell.He said, "I was offered a new contract but I decided to leave and hopefully get opportunities here.""Leaving Chelsea was very emotional because I'd been there since I was a boy. Being at Chelsea, I would have signed a new deal and gone out on loan again and got frustrated.Chalobah added: "That was the choice I had to make, but it was emotional leaving Chelsea. No disrespect to Chelsea but when I was here first time I did feel as if I was involved quite a bit and I did get opportunities."This will be Chalobah’s second spell with the Hornets after a loan to Vicarage Road in 2012/13, where he made 38 Championship appearances. Six successive loans followed, the latest of which was to Napoli, where he made just five Serie A appearances."Watfo…

Do not compare me with Luiz Figo - Neymar

Sky Sports revealed that, Neymar jr, whose world-record €222m transfer to the Ligue 1 giants has seen him branded a traitor by Barca fans and club officials, has downplayed similarities between himself and Luis Figo, a player who suffered a similar fate after departing Camp Nou.Neymar said: "I've done nothing bad. I'm sad about the fact that some fans think that. I hope it's a minority of fans."He add"I never lacked respect for the fans. I think every player should be allowed to stay or leave a club. You're not obligated to stay at a club."I never lacked respect towards anybody. Again, I want to thank the fans, the players, the club of Barcelona."The 25-year old went on to refute suggestions that the move was motivated by a reported annual salary of €30m, saying that if this was true, he may have had other options. "These people don't know anything about my personal life," he said about people accusing him of prioritising money ov…

Barcelona want to sign Martinez from Sociedad

ESPN report that, a 26-year-old, Martinez, centre-back is a product of the Basque club’s youth system, and has made just under 200 La Liga appearances and earned four caps for Spain.According to reporters, "It's true Barca have spoken with us," La Real sporting director Loren Juarros."They've been in contact to show their interest in the player. But so far there is no offer on the table. That's all we can say."La Real have no intention of facilitating Inigo’s exit to any club. He is irreplaceable.

We need to sign more players - Antonio Conte

Sky Sport disclosed to the sport lovers that, Chelsea fc have only spent money on three new players so far, bringing in Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, and Antonio Rudiger from AS Roma, while Willy Caballero joined for free from Manchester City.However, Antonio Conte will be hoping to defend Chelsea's Premier League title this season, while also trying to go as far as possible in the Champions League, but he believes they need to strengthen to compete on all fronts."For us it’s very important to improve our squad in terms of the numerical aspect because we have a small squad," the Italian told the club's official website."Only one player is not enough to improve our team, we need more."The best way is to try to find the right solution. It’s important the club know my opinion about the number we need. They are trying to do the best for our team and our squad. Now we have to wait and have patience to improve our squad."

AS Roma are looking great without signing Mahrez - Monchi

ESPN report that, the Giallorossi have made a bid for the winger but are no closer to signing him. However, Monchi played down the importance of bringing the Algeria international to Rome, insisting that the squad is already looking great.ESPN report that, Monchi said, "The situation with Mahrez has not changed."He added: "I would like to say a couple of things, though. A club like Roma, who can boast the calibre of players like [Lorenzo] Pellegrini, [Kevin] Strootman, [Radja] Nainggolan, [Edin] Dzeko, [Federico] Fazio or [Aleksandar] Kolarov, cannot think that their overall performance is going to depend on the arrival of just one specific right-winger."The guarantee comes from the route you are on and the group you have."The second message I wanted to give is that I don't know if Mahrez or somebody else will come but, whoever arrives, he will be a big player who is able to add quality to an already magnificent squad."
