Welcome to our football.london CareFree Chelsea daily news round-up. Maybe not the first, we've definitely done transfer round-ups before, and European round-ups, so I guess in some ways it's not that new at all.
Anyway, we thought we would enter the world of football in a broad and roundabout manner for you and have some fun with some of the stories and captions doing the daily rounds.
Barcelona monitor Azpilicueta
Barcelona are monitoring Cesar Azpilicueta's situation at Chelsea ahead of the January transfer window, according to ESPN.
The report claims that the Blues are still in contract negotiations with the 32-year-old defender as Thomas Tuchel attempts to persuade the Spaniard to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.
Our view: I can't see Azpilicueta leaving Chelsea unless there's a substantial breakdown in contract talks.
That being said, Chelsea do need to be careful because they have a number of defenders whose current deals are ticking down and Xavi is clearly keen to bolster his defensive options.
Juventus surrender Chelsea transfer race
Gazzetta dello Sport report (via Football Italia) that Juventus have 'close to zero per cent' chance of winning the race to sign Aurelien Tchouameni, handing Chelsea a major boost in their quest to sign the youngster.
It's recently been reported that Tuchel is 'ready to accelerate' his pursuit of the 21-year-old amid interest from various sides including Real Madrid and Newcastle.
With a whole host of top clubs still monitoring Tchouameni, Chelsea still have plenty of work to do if they're to get their man.
Our view: A massive boost for the Blues. When Tuchel first lodged his interest in Tchouameni, Juventus were touted as the biggest stumbling block in any potential deal and so this news could be key to signing the Frenchman.
Real Madrid outline demands
Florentino Perez has told Chelsea that not even €80 million (£67.6 million) is not enough to secure the services of Real Madrid defender Eder Militao, according to Fichajes.
The report claims that Los Blancos believe the 23-year-old centre-back can be a crucial part of the club's future and so are unwilling to let him leave on the cheap.
The report also claims that Chelsea previously lodged a bid of €40 million (£33.8 million) for the Brazilian in their bid to bolster their defensive options.
Our view: Militao would be a great signing for Chelsea.
He was incredible at Porto but I must admit he hasn't really lived up to expectations since moving to Real, and the summer departures of Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos mean he'll need to step it up this season.
I can't say I have a preference between Jules Kounde and Militao, just so long as Chelsea sign at least one of the two given their potential defensive crisis next summer if new deals for some of the club's current crop of defenders aren't sorted.
