Transfer rumor roundup 5/21: United interested in Willian

Transfer rumor roundup 5/21: United interested in Willian

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte insisted he is a "serial winner" after ending a hard season on a high by beating Manchester United 1-0 to lift the FA Cup thanks to Eden Hazard's penalty at Wembley on Saturday.

Willian is said to have fallen out with the Italian after losing his place in the starting XI in recent weeks and only came on in the final minute of the 1-0 win over Manchester United in Sunday's FA Cup final.

"Like I said in the last weeks or months, I think we'll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year", the Belgium global said.

That sparked renewed talk that Hazard would consider leaving Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid among the clubs interested in his services, following Chelsea's failure to qualify for next season's Champions League.

"I think if we want to aim for the top, we should do the same - obviously within the limits of what's possible as well". We will be ready next season.

"I think after two years the club knows me very well", he said when asked what he hopes to hear when he and Chelsea discuss his future.

"We'll see what is going to happen after the World Cup".

The players picked up on that and that gave them some sort of excuse for not performing as well as they did when they won the title in his first season in charge.

"He has not been as effective this season for Chelsea as he was previous year - but none of the Blues players have been".

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has called for "the uncertainty to be put to bed" over the future of Antonio Conte, with the Italian widely expected to be on his way out of the club.

Starbucks in hot water again over racial slur on cup
The barista believed to be responsible for writing the slur at the La Cañada Flintridge location is said to be in her 20s. On May 29, Starbucks is shuttering all of its stores in the USA and corporate offices for the racial-bias training.

Hazard has two Premier League titles with Chelsea since arriving in 2012.

The West London club missed out on a Champions League spot and will play in the Europa League next season.

There needs to be a clear line from the club, either they continue or stop.

Courtois said: "Yeah, I think so". I'm the coach of a great, important club, in England and the world.

"You have to understand if, in this season, we had the maximum or not".

"I think that the transfer market has gone pretty insane".

"This was to save our season", Cahill said before collecting the FA Cup.

Jones had United's best chance of the first half but headed wide at the back post as he tried to make amends for his earlier error. Let's see, I am sure the manager will make the best decision for him and his family.

"The decision to appoint two seasons I brought two trophies to this club".
