Thiago Silva message to Chelsea teammate ahead Barcelona move

Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva, has spoken about the importance of team-mate Cesar Azpilicueta, who he described as a “spectacular footballer” as Barcelona consider poaching the defender.

Azpilicueta has made over 450 appearances for the Blues since signing from Marseille 10 years ago.

The Spaniard has gone on to win every major trophy on offer during his spell at Stamford Bridge.

However, Azpilicueta has been heavily linked with a move away from Chelsea, as he enters the final months of his contract with the club.

The Premier League club was hoping to tie down Azpilicueta to a new deal but sanctions to club owner Roman Abramovich have put talks on hold.

Silva, who joined Chelsea in 2020, told Mundo Deportivo: “Cesar Azpilicueta since I arrived, was one of my main sources of support.

“There are players who have what it takes to be captain and he is one of them. He is a player who seeks union, who tries to help others.

“He is a spectacular footballer and a super-professional who, with certainty, deserves to be where is. Azpilicueta has beastly conditions.”

Premier League blocks Victor Moses’ return as Nigerian star plots Russia escape

The Premier League has blocked Burnley’s attempt to rescue Victor Moses from Spartak Moscow, according to SportsMail.

The Clarets tried to clinch a deal to bring the ex-Chelsea forward from Russia, who are in the midst of a conflict with Ukraine.

Moses, Burnley and Spartak Moscow were all open to the former Super Eagles star returning to play in England until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old joined Spartak Moscow in 2020 on an initial loan before the deal was made permanent in 2021.

But the Premier League club have been informed that they cannot sign Moses on a short-term deal.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last month led to both the domestic leagues being suspended.

As a result, FIFA and UEFA made the joint decision to allow players from teams in Ukraine and Russia to join other European teams on short-term deals until the end of the season – even though the transfer window is shut.

However, the Premier League have ruled they will not accept any requests for new transfers due to concerns over the sporting integrity of the competition.
