3. Lukaku is a better choice for Chelsea than Morata- Cole
Chelsea legend Joe Cole believes Everton forward Romelu Lukaku is the best to replace outgoing striker Diego Costa. Antonio Conte has told the Spaniard he is free to leave this summer. This means a new striker must be signed. The Blues has also been linked with Real Madrid attacker Alvaro Morata but he is a risky option according to Cole.
“Lukaku, there’s a market for him, and you are competing for players. I like Lukaku. I’d take Lukaku, he is like for like with Costa, but they only need one or two players and just keep the continuity going,’’ Cole told Goal.
“I don’t know his character so it is hard to say [whether the comeback could affect him], but I would say is that the pressure is different when you play for Chelsea, rather than Everton. He is younger [than Costa], that’s in his favor.”
“Sergio Aguero is in his prime, Alexis Sanchez is in his prime,” Cole continued. “I think one of them three could be enough to make sure Chelsea are not weakened and maybe strengthened a little bit as well. The club will have to do their due diligence on the characters as well.
“The financial structure of it and the cost… I wouldn’t look outside of Lukaku, Sanchez, and Aguero. Alvaro Morata is another one but he has never played in England so there is a little question mark there. Certainly, they would be the players to look at.”
2. ‘Milan bullied Donnarumma’- Raiola
Super Agent Mino Raiola has finally spoken out about the contract situation surrounding AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. The agent and the player have been accused of greed after failing to agree to a new deal for the 18-year-old shot-stopper. The Club announced last week that contract talks broke down completely. The controversial agent is now blaming the club for what he says is bullying and threats.
“The situation had become too violent and hostile, so there was no way out,” Raiola told Sky Sport Italia
“We took a decision that we didn’t want to take.
“It was nothing to do with money. We were threatened. Donnarumma’s family was threatened, both with not playing anymore and threatened with death. You can’t keep a player by threatening him.
“Now there is a genuine risk he could miss a year. His quality makes that improbable, but this is already on the verge of bullying.
“We never even got to talk about money or release clauses, because we were not allowed to get that far, nor to think of what was best for Gigio.
“He was ready to sign a new contract, there were no doubts in his mind. They forced us to abandon the negotiations because of the environment created around him.
“I take the responsibility. They forced us. It was Milan that lost Donnarumma. He said to me, ‘honestly Mino, I don’t feel it is right to carry on negotiations when these people are insulting and threatening me and my family’.
The Club fans threw fake cash towards the goalkeeper when Italy U21 side played Denmark U21 in the ongoing U21 Euros. It is a clear indication that the fans are not happy with him. The agent also represents other stars namely Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku among others.
