Chelsea will have to wait until the Champions League final is over to know about the Real Madrid star’s availability: Reports

Chelsea is interested in signing Real Madrid star Carlos Casemiro in the summer, according to reports. However, according to the Daily Mirror, via Teamtalk, the Brazilian will confirm his arrival after the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool on May 28.

Both Jorginho and N’Golo Kante have one year left on their current contracts with Chelsea and their recent performances are in jeopardy. Doubts have been raised about his future at Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, with Erik ten Hag reportedly considering signing the Frenchman.

That is why Thomas Tuchel is looking for other strict options. Youngsters like Aurelian Tchouameni and Declan Rice have also been linked with the west London club, but they won’t be available cheaply and won’t have enough competition.

Teamtalk also suggested that the Blues would be the first club to be informed by Real Madrid’s transfer leaders if the club put Casemiro on the transfer list. Favorites Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have also been mentioned among the clubs interested in signing the Brazilian.

The current contract with the La Liga champions is valid until 2025, but the Brazilian wants a new contract with a higher salary. Real Madrid is unwilling to offer him a promotion on a current deal and could sell him to Chelsea for around £42.5m. However, reports suggest that if Casemiro agrees to continue his current contract, Los Blancos will gladly keep him on his books.

Real Madrid boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists Casemiro will not be replaced amid interest from Chelsea

The defensive lineman has been one of the three pillars of the famous midfield, with Luka Modric, Toni Kross, and himself. The 30-year-old has made 331 appearances for Los Blancos since he signed for them in 2013 from Sao Paulo for an idyllic €6m deal.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has coached Casemiro for nearly five years during his two separate seasons at the Santiago Bernabéu. He believes that the Chelsea stadium is one of the most unique players in his position and possibly the best.

Ancelotti, speaking to AS Diario, said:

 

“If we look for a copy of Casemiro, we will make a mistake. No one in world football. He is unique. But other players can play as a pivot. Camavinga plays there, who has other characteristics. Good but not strong Casemiro, I have not had a foundation like this.

How Palmer and Reece James Have Complemented Each Other in Chelsea’s Lineup This Season

Published

By

Reece James just returned to action for Chelsea this season after recovering from an injury that kept him on the sidelines for weeks but the synergy between the Chelsea Skipper and Cole Palmer has emerged as a pivotal factor in Chelsea’s recent impressive performance.

Their relationship on the pitch showcases a dynamic partnership that has been significantly impacting the team’s overall performance.

One key element of this collaboration is the strategic placement of Cole Palmer in the middle, operating behind the striker.

This positioning capitalizes on Palmer’s unique skill set, acknowledging that he may not possess the blistering pace or sheer physicality to excel in isolated one-on-one situations with defenders.

Instead, Palmer’s strength lies in his ability to receive the ball on the half-turn, exhibiting clever passes that ignite the team’s attacking prowess.

Palmer’s fluid style, characterized by his adept use of pockets and floating movements, creates a symbiotic relationship with Reece James.

James, a versatile right-back, benefits from Palmer’s strategic play by having the freedom to occupy the wing.

This tactical understanding not only maximizes Palmer’s strengths but also amplifies James’s impact on the game.

What becomes evident in this partnership is Palmer essentially playing as a number 10, operating in a role that aligns with his capabilities and enhances the team’s attacking dynamics.

By strategically placing Palmer in a central position, Chelsea leverages his playmaking abilities, allowing him to orchestrate the flow of the game and provide crucial link-up play between the midfield and the strikers.

The tactical harmony between Palmer and James is not just about individual brilliance but also about how their styles complement each other seamlessly.

Palmer’s intelligent movements and distribution empower James to venture forward with confidence, creating a fluid and dynamic attacking unit for Chelsea
