Chelsea now have just under two weeks until their next Premier League game against Manchester United, but Blues head coach Frank Lampard has some decisions to make.
The winter break is here for Chelsea, with no game for the Blues until their Premier League clash with Manchester United on February 17.
Frank Lampard’s men have no game this coming weekend, with the Premier League fixtures split over two weekends to allow for a winter break for all teams.
As such, Chelsea’s players and staff now have less than two weeks until their next game, which will be a big one against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’ United side, who currently sit five points behind the Blues in the battle to finish in the top four.
Following their 2-2 draw at Leicester City on Saturday, Chelsea remain in fourth spot, but Tottenham closed the gap on the Blues to four points with their victory against Manchester City in north London on Sunday.
Will Jadon Sancho return to the Premier League in the summer?
The talented teenager is sure to be on the list of many clubs through Europe’s top five leagues this summer following a string of impressive performances in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.
And Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has given an update on the youngster’s future.
Meanwhile, Edinson Cavani’s mum has revealed that a move to Atletico Madrid is still possible for her son.
But the La Liga side will have to do something first before they can seal a move for the Chelsea target.
His mother also claimed Cavani never considered Chelsea or Manchester United.
“Edinson didn’t want money to be the reason, because if it was about money, he would have gone to Manchester United, Chelsea or Inter Miami, who made a big offer for him,” Gomez told Spanish newspaper AS.
Jorginho agent hints at Chelsea exit
Agent Joao Santos has suggested that Jorginho could consider leaving Chelsea during the summer transfer window.
Jorginho has established himself as a key figure at the Blues, making 86 appearances in all competitions since a £57m move from Napoli in July 2018.
However, despite the Italy international having just under three-and-a-half years left on his contract, Santos has hinted that the 28-year-old may contemplate a new challenge later in 2020.
Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, Santos said: “Why not? I am sure that some important proposals will come, which we would obviously evaluate together with Chelsea.”
Juventus would likely be an option for Jorginho, who worked with head coach Maurizio Sarri during his time at Napoli and in his first year at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea face a tough fixture list when they come back from their winter break.
The Premier League’s first ever mid-season break comes at a welcome time for the Blues, with just one win in their last five games and injury problems stacking up.
Will their form improve after the break? And how do their upcoming fixtures stack up against their rivals’?
Chelsea did not make any moves in the January transfer window, but that will surely change when the summer one opens up.
Having not signed anyone apart from Mateo Kovacic in the past two windows, the Blues will have some money to spend as they look to close the gap at the top of the table next season.
The Blues will be looking for a marquee signing, with the likes of Jadon Sancho or Timo Werner on their list to try to entice to Stamford Bridge.
But this season, Frank Lampard has already given a lot of chances to players who have come through the academy or have been out on loan.
