Barça will NOT sign AZPILICUETA this summer

The Blue captain will renew 2 seasons with Chelsea, in hours it will be official.
Azpilicueta wanted to have his future clear before the start of the Premier League.

Barça asked him to wait a few more days to be able to solve the PF issue with La Liga.

The Blues captain decided this morning and communicated it to the club and Xavi

  • Aubameyang not thinking of leaving Barca despite Chelsea's interest
  • The Gabon striker has spent four years fighting for a Barcelona shirt and is not giving up after just six months at the club.
  • He feels at home in the dressing room and at Barcelona and is not afraid of competition with Lewandowski.
Aubameyang has no plans to leave Barça

Despite Chelsea's hypothetical interest in acquiring his services, the Gabonese striker has no intention of leaving the Catalan giants.
Xavi is also counting on Aubameyang for the upcoming season.

Wlodarczyk: Klich is determined to go on loan from Leeds. Efforts are underway to find him a club where he will play regularly. From what I hear, a very possible destination is FC Utrecht. Mateusz has already been with this team in the past.

The Toffees are interested in Michy Batshuayi.
Frank Lampard has approved the profile.
Chelsea want a permanent transfer of the Red Devil [i.e. Belgian national team player].
On the player's side, they like the idea of a one-year extension and a loan in the meantime to Everton.
To be continued.

Best possible translation:
Senesi can do better than Bournemouth as they will get relegated regardless this season. Maybe he can use it as a springboard to move to a bigger team. He has his flaws but overall he’s a leader at the back and his presence shows. Will miss him but we need the money.

I really wish US keepers would stop signing for English teams to sit on the bench 95% of the time. Turner/Steffen/Horvath and now Slonina.
I imagine he’ll be sent on a multi year loan deal, similar to Courtois back in the day. I’m almost certain he won’t just sit on the bench backing up Mendy.

I mean, he kinda has to. We’re about to loan out Kepa. We can’t go a season with Betinelli being an ankle twist away from being our #1.

He’s back with Chicago Fire until the MLS season ends anyway, which is in November, so if Kepa leaves, we’re either finding a replacement or going with Mendy and Betinelli.

What I think will happen is Chelsea will let Kepa go and hope Mendy stays healthy until Christmas. Slonina then joins the team as the back up goalie in January until the end of the season and then goes on loan next summer.

Still not ideal (from a US perspective). The kid is still, well, a kid and needs playing time. He is super talented but has a mistake or 2 in him each game and only playing can iron that out.

He’ll get his playing time on loan. He’ll just be the back up for 4 months, if I’m right, then head out on loan, hopefully a multi year loan with one club, so he can settle and just play for the same team for 2-3 years.

Yeah, that’s what I meant. Once we hit January he’ll come in as our #2. I don’t think he’s going to go out on loan for a few years like Courtois did.

I don’t see any other path for him, unless you think he can displace Mendy right now? It doesn’t make any sense to not send him on loan for a couple of years in a top 5 European league.

As much as I don't care about Chelsea, as a Dodger fan, he's been an exceptional executive. Wouldn't surprise me if he's in the process of hiring the right operators ASAP to turn Chelsea into a well-oiled machine.

Seeing him at close quarters at Old Trafford last season he really was exceptional and looked like a class player.

  • Vlasic is not in West Ham's plans, so he could be loaned out.
  • Torino faces some competition to sign the player.
