All the latest news and views from Stamford Bridge.

Germany superstar Mario Goetze referenced Chelsea when discussing Bayern Munich's fortunes in the Champions League campaign.

Speaking on the club's official website he said that the loss suffered against Real Madrid, a match in which they dominated the passing statistics and also the possession split, "hurt". He added: "We had a bad day in the second leg but you shouldn't forget how we played at Real Madrid when we dominated the game for long periods.

"Obviously, you can do it like Chelsea did at Atletico and park the bus in your own penalty area [but] that's not our style. I'm firmly convinced we play football the way it should be played. And the way we play suits me perfectly."

There may be something lost in translation, but Goezte is effectively criticising Jose Mourinho's tactics by implying Chelsea have adopted a style under the Portuguese's rule that conflicts the way the sport should be played. Will there be any riposte from Stamford Bridge? Probably not. That's not their style!

There is plenty transfer news and rumour to digest.

It is no secret that Paris Saint Germain are fond of a number of Chelsea players - Eden Hazard and Oscar in particular. However, they are reportedly also interested in potentially available defensive utility David Luiz.

The Brazilian reportedly told TF1: "I love the city [Paris], it's a super city. When I have some spare time, I jump on a train and I go there. I love it. PSG are a big club now, a great name. They're working flat out to win the Champions League, they're certainly going to win the French title for many seasons to come, so they're a big club."

Also, a British journalist with a background working for CNN, The Mail and The Sun, has claimed that Diego Costa to Chelsea is a done deal: "Wages are agreed and all contract technicalities."

On the pitch, Chelsea's Premier League finish this season netted them £21m in prize money, yet that figure is dwarfed by their total earnings from television revenue. For the full figure and what every other club in the division received, click here.

And finally, two Blues have been named amongst Roy Hodgson's 23-man provisional England World Cup squad selection, with veteran Frank Lampard and defensive great Gary Cahill both called up for duty.

A Chelsea wonderkid, though, will also catch a plane-ride over to Brazil as Christian Atsu, a 22-year-old winger who spent the season on loan at Vitesse Arnham, will link up with Ghana. He scored five times this term.
