Chelsea: Kovacic the New Maestro, New Deal Almost Done, Silva Voted MOTM

Mateo Kovacic

Chelsea's midfield is being considered one of the best organized in the top 5 European leagues and that is thanks to the great work of Matteo Kovacic, Jorginho, and Ngolo Kante. But among the three midfielder’s, the one who is taking most credit for recent successes is Kovacic because of his impressive goal involvements record.

Currently, he has scored one goal and created three others. Thomas Tuchel seems to have considered him as one of the indispensable members of the first eleven squad because he has been a regular starter in the last few games. His spot-on long-range passing ability and stamina are said to be his strengths in the game. He currently has two years remaining in his contract but plans are underway to extend his tenure.

Andreas Christensen

It has been revealed that Chelsea are in the latter stages of a deal settlement with Danish defender Andreas Christensen over a new contract extension. Reports have shown that the defender will be earning a new weekly salary of €120,000 if he signs the new deal. Marina Granovskaia is spearheading the talks over the new deal and things are going smoothly at the moment.

Currently, the defender earns a mouth gaping weekly salary of €78,000 and his contract is due to expire at the end of the season. The new deal is said to be a five-year contract, with the player being assured 60% of the games in the seasons included in the deal. Those around the defender have confirmed that Christensen is happy with the deal and will most probably put pen to paper in the next few days.

Thiago Silva

Thiago Silva has been voted as Man of the Match in the London derby match that was played on Sunday at White Hart Lane. Thiago Silva scored a brilliant goal in the game and also managed to secure a clean sheet for his side. Online polls were conducted yesterday after fans were asked by Chelsea to vote for their MOTM and three candidates were shortlisted to vie for the recognition (Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, and Kepa Arrizabalaga). Eventually, Thiago Silva turned out to be the player who caught the eye of the fans.
