Eight reasons why July 21 is a MASSIVE day for the Blues…

1) Frenchie side Paris St Germain say they have reached an agreement with The Blues to sign midfielder Claude Makelele. God how the li’l legend will be missed.

2) But Petr Cech has signed a new five-year deal to keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2013! That’s great, great news. The 26-year-old was linked with a £32m move away from the club in May but has now committed his future to the Blues.

3) Brazil striker Robinho has told Real Madrid he is desperate to join Chelsea according to The Sun.

4) But Real are refusing to sell him for less than £120million (that’s according to Sky Sports). Bonkers considering only a week ago they were trying to offload him to Manchester United.

5) Didier Drogba looks to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge after he was left out of the club’s tour to China. (The Daily Mirror with that story)

6) And it sadly looks like Barcelona are preparing a £22m bid for Drogba. (Daily Express there)

7) Meanwhile on the Lampard front, Jose’s Inter are prepared to wait for Lampard’s contract at Chelsea to run out. The Telegraph are saying Mourinho would rather sign him for free next season if Chelsea are playing silly buggers.

8) Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp will let up to seven players leave to finance an £8m move for Chelsea’s extremely loveable midget SWP.
