Chelsea had ‘no intention’ of sanctioning Man Utd exit and ex-player finds new club

Chelsea had ‘no intention’ of sanctioning Man Utd exit over the summer and ex-player finds new club in the Premier League on a free transfer.

It is a new era at Chelsea following the appointment of Graham Potter as head coach.

The 47-year-old will be eager to show what he can do with the Premier League giants after impressive spells at Ostersund, Swansea City and Brighton and Hove Albion.

Here is a look at the latest news coming out of Stamford Bridge...

Potter opens up about challenges so far

Potter’s playing career saw him have spells with the likes of West Brom, York City and Macclesfield Town.

He hung up his boots in 2005 and had a seven-year spell at Ostersund in Sweden after working with Hull and Leeds Carnegie Universities and the Ghana Women’s team.

The Solihull-born man has opened up about his time abroad to Chelsea’s official media channels and has said:

“Challenges abroad meant that I could widen my thoughts on myself, on life, on football, which was a fantastic opportunity for me. So all those challenges and experiences shape you as a human being, they make you grow, develop.

“I think in order to get better you have to take a little step outside of what is comfortable.”

Winger on Manchester United’s radar?

Christian Pulisic was reportedly on Manchester United’s radar over the summer.

The USA international was apparently wanted by the Red Devils on loan.

However, according to reporter Fabrizio Romano on YouTube (via talkSPORT), the Blues had ‘no intention’ of letting him leave temporarily to Old Trafford.

Former player finds club

Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa is back in the Premier League.

The Spain international, who is 33-years-old, has linked up with Wolves on a free transfer.

Ex-Blues man Juan Mata also found a new club late last week and signed for Galatasaray.
