Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is reportedly still not happy with the club’s transfer dealings, despite Chelsea bringing in Torino defender Davide Zappacosta. The right back, who is expected to provide competition for Victor Moses in the right wing back position, has been signed for £ 23 million.
Danny Drinkwater has also been brought in as the defensive midfield option from Leicester City for around £ 35 million. Sky Italia have claimed that Conte was extremely unhappy with the transfer business of the reigning Premier league champions. He has also voiced those opinions publicly by saying that Chelsea need at least four or five new players in order to compete on all four fronts.

The Leicester Tigers failed to restore a bit of their pride as they faced Racing at Welford Road. Their European hopes were gone and the ground was cold and difficult but the hosts were expected to manage their opposition better.
Racing had the knockout stages of the Champions Cup on the line and it was enough motivation against the Tigers. Within 12 minutes, they were leading 14-0 courtesy of some very good players in their ranks. Henry Chavancy scored with a driving maul while Maxime Machenaud pressured the Tigers’ scrum and then reacted fastest to a loose ball. Continue reading LEICESTER STRUGGLE AGAINST RACING
Ever since Everton FC let go of David Moyes and his well known uninspiring albeit safe brand of football, the Toffees has met a situation where they couldn’t really say if they are better off with the Scot gone.
Roberto Martinez – the guy that worked his magic with Wigan Athletic back in the day – was the first man given the chance to show the Merseyside club that one could play good football and still achieve the reasonable seasonal targets

Everton ended up conceding goals above the average recorded during Moyes’ time.
That would have been overlooked only that their position on the EPL settings ended up n0t meeting expectations.. Continue reading KOEMAN MUST HAVE SOMETHING BETTER TO SHOW COME NEXT SEASON
From the looks of it, Pepe´s time as a player of Real Madrid is about to be over as the Portuguese defender is starting to see the bench on a more consistent basis and taking into consideration that his contract is expiring in the summer, it does not appear to be very likely that ZinedineZidane is interested in offering the 34 year old defender a contract renewal.
Raphael Varane has slowly been pushing Pepe away from the main team and the French defender has turned into one of the more influential players in the entire Real Madrid squad while Pepe has been doing nothing but fading away to the sidelines in the background.
It´s because of all these reasons that rumors have been spreading around which are linking Pepe to a number of different clubs and one of those teams is Paris Saint-Germain.
If PSG is indeed interested in signing Pepe, they will face competition from clubs in the Chinese Super League as a few have showed desire to secure the services of Pepe and Asian clubs have not been afraid to splash out big amounts of cash in players.
