Transfer News Today: Two Chelsea Defenders Set For Exits

Heading Home

Chelsea’s Brazilian defender Felipe Luis is set for a return to Atletico Madrid just a year after leaving the club to move to Stamford Bridge.

That was fast. Well Cesar Azpilicueta has proven impossible to shift at left-back in Jose Mourinho’s plans and Luis has never really settled. A move would be best for him.

Zoum-ing Out?


Chelsea’s bid to sign the Everton defender John Stones could lead them to ship Kurt Zouma out on loan to Newcastle. Zouma is highly-rated by Mourinho, who feels that a year playing regularly would help his development.

A clever move? John Terry can’t go on forever despite evidence to the contrary, so getting Zouma some first-team action certainly makes sense.

Chelsea are 2.50 to win the Premier League

Fabian Delph now will be moving to Manchester City after all, less than a week after publically rejecting their advances and pledging his future to Aston Villa.

Oh. Exactly. Villa fans will be far from happy, especially with the club also about to lose Christian Benteke to Liverpool.

Villa are 4.50 to go down


Clause Triggered


And as for Benteke, he could complete his switch to Anfield as early as the weekend after Liverpool triggered his £32.5m release clause.

How will he do? Read here and find out. He’ll certainly give Liverpool a new option upfront, and he almost guarantees goals.

Believe it or not, Victor Moses is still a Chelsea player. He might not be for much longer though as he’s apparently the target of an £8m bid from Spurs.

Spurs? Really? Seems odd doesn’t it. He would probably be better off pushing for a move back to Stoke, where he’s be guaranteed more of a game. 

Spurs are 7.50 to finish in the top four
