Chelsea tried to sign Ter Stegen from Barcelona

Chelsea now have the likes of Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, and veteran Willy Caballero as goalkeepers who will battle for a regular place between the sticks this season.  However, reports have emerged that the Blues approached to sign Marc-Andre ter Stegen from Barcelona before settling for newcomer Edouard Mendy. Frank Lampard prioritized signing a goalkeeper in the summer transfer window after Kepa failed to convince the Englishman with his performances between the sticks last season. The Spain international was not very convincing and this resulted in him being dropped for a period including the FA Cup final last season.

Tardelli disappointed with Chiellini’s remarks about Melo and Balotelli

Marco Tardelli has not hidden his disappointment with Giorgio Chiellini after his harsh comments about Felipe Melo and Mario Balotelli.

He went on to describe former club teammate Felipe Melo as the worst of the worst, adding that he told the management of the team that the Brazilian midfielder was a rotten apple.

Bernardeschi does not want to leave Juve, says agent

The agent of Federico Bernardeschi has insisted that the player is happy at Juventus and doesn't want to leave Turin in the summer.
