Chelsea transfer news: Luis latest, can Blues screw United? Jose loves real Ronaldo

All the latest Chelsea transfer news including Felipe Luis, how one Blues target can infringe on Manchester United's activity and the real Ronaldo.

There is a major update to the Filipe Luis story as the Atletico Madrid left back remains firmly on Chelsea's radar. Having already failed with two bids earlier this week, the Blues have substantially increased their previous offers of £12 million and £15 million to the full release clause valuation of £19 million - an offer so good that Atletico now seemingly cannot refuse.

On the subject of left backs, Chelsea now see Ryan Bertrand to have a market value of £8 million. The defender has reportedly been interesting Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, with the former even bidding £6 million for him in an offer that was rejected on grounds it was deemed too low.

The club could also be looking into making a sensational punt on Didier Drogba, now 36, who is alleged to be attracting enquiries from Juventus and Marseille. The Evening Standard reported on this deal here.

If Chelsea's desire to secure the talents of precocious French youngster Paul Pogba are real, then they may be buoyed by the news that in doing so, they will inhibit Manchester United's ability to land their number one midfield priority now - Arturo Vidal.

Having spent money on transfer fees and wages of Alvaro Morata and Patrice Evra, the Serie A's Old Lady now "need cash".

Mourinho is alleged to be desperate in his pursuit of Pogba, who he sees as the missing link in a new-look three-man midfield anchored by Nemanja Matic and spearheaded by creative attacker Francesc Fabregas.

And, if he acquires the youngster, then Juve will not sell Vidal.

And finally, Mourinho has revealed that he thinks the best player of the last 20 years is none other than Ronaldo. The real Ronaldo. Not the Real Madrid Ronaldo. This one.
