Erik Lamela to move to Porto? Arsenal in for Julian Draxler after Juve fail

Sid Lowe confirms that the Spanish centreback will stay at Madrid, despite rumours of a move to Manchester United; however ESPN FC's Craig Burley wonders how much value a reluctant player will have for the Spanish giants.

Tottenham could use a few more goals out of Erik Lamela, who has just four on the season in all competitions.
Erik Lamela has not set the world alight at Tottenham.

How does Arsenal's spending compare to the top six? Get your calculators out

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his Premier League rivals are now the ones attempting to buy their way to glory, a charge that used to levelled at the Blues.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is already ramping up the mind games and we're still a little under two weeks from the start of the Premier League season.

Indeed, with Chelsea set to take on Arsenal at Wembley on Sunday in the Community Shield, rival manager Arsene Wenger has already become the focus of his attention.

"If you add up the amounts clubs have spent in the last three or four years I think maybe you will find a surprise," Mourinho said, in an obvious attempt to add pressure on the Gunners...

Jose Mourinho pranks Chelsea staff with fake team-building exercise

With an upcoming friendly against Montreal Impact to prepare for, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho decided to warm-up (or should that be cool down?) beforehand by pranking members of his playing and backroom staff with a phoney team-building exercise.

The prank involved Mourinho lining up his victims on chairs and asking them to pretend they were sat on a bus, having them lean back and forth in unison while the evil Portuguese mastermind chose his moment to strike.

Sure enough, the signal came and the...

Unsung Willian still with room to improve

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner feels Jose Mourinho's comments are to fire up his players following the continued influx of money being spent by Premier League clubs, but Craig Burley is not surprised that clubs are now "buying titles."

Within Chelsea's squad over the last few years, by far the most competitive area has concerned the attacking midfield. The high turnover of players in that department and the myriad options for successive managers has formed the basis for the new approach in Chelsea's play -- one based upon craft and finesse in place of power and force of will.

Despite the constant churn of options behind the main striker, some constants remain. Eden Hazard has risen to become the most dazzling individual at the...

Rivals battle for English starlet

Chelsea have risked Everton's wrath with a very public pursuit of John Stones, though it seems Jose Mourinho is not the only Premier League coach interested in the 21-year-old centre-back.

The Mirror reports that Manchester United have joined the race for Stones having made "discreet contact" with Everton, and are...

Stones and Rahman interest sparks new debate about Chelsea academy

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho insists that his team 'don't have fragilities', and don't need any other players ahead of the new Premier League season.

Having followed up long-rumoured interest in promising Everton and England centre-back John Stones with a £20 million bid, as that negotiation process plays out, Chelsea are now focussing attention on the left-back squad berth freed up by the impending sale of Filipe Luis back to Atletico Madrid.

Despite arriving at Stamford Bridge with a solid reputation and impeccable credentials as a La Liga winner with Atleti, Luis failed to usurp Cesar Azpilicueta from Blues boss Jose Mourinho's first...
