Chelsea morning news: Boost for Chelsea! PSG star ruled out of second leg

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not play in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final through injury.

The Swede is rated as one of the best players in the world but a hamstring problem means he won’t play for the next four to six weeks.

Ibrahimovic would have been a key figure for PSG as they looked to try and protect and increase their 3-1 lead in West London.

Former Chelsea assistant boss Ray Wilkins says Fernando Torres has no future at the club.

Torres was benched for the game against PSG earlier this week and was later indirectly criticised by manager Jose Mourinho.

“Torres has no future at Chelsea - He moved from a Liverpool side where he was so successful as an individual to Chelsea, where the style of play is so different,” Wilkins told the Metro.

Sticking with a familiar PSG theme, the Express has suggested Ezequiel Lavezzi is a target for the Blues.

The 28-year-old bagged the first goal against Chelsea last Wednesday following a mistake from John Terry.

He was reportedly close to joining Inter Milan last winter with the national daily suggesting Chelsea could approach the idea of grabbing him.
