Blues to offer Pickford new deal

Gareth Bale scored a memorable goal for Real Madrid in last season's Champions League final

Those performances did not go unnoticed and Chelsea are now considering him as a potential replacement for Thibault Courtois, should he head to Real Madrid, despite having landed Rob Green on a free transfer.

The Blues pair are likely to be key components of Maurizio Sarri's plans for Chelsea ahead of the upcoming season, so there will undoubtedly be a reluctance to sanction either player's sale.

According to a report from The Times, Everton are planning to offer Jordan Pickford a new contract at Goodison Park this summer as he continues to attract attention from elsewhere.

Madrid made no secret of their interest in Eden Hazard, and the admiration was reciprocated but Chelsea's asking price of £200m proved an obstacle that could not be overcome.

Trump, Iran drama escalates -- via Twitter
Several observers noted the similarities between the threats on Iran, and Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign towards Pyongyang. It's about as serious this time around, but there's more bad blood behind Trump's deployment of all caps against Iran.

However, the Toffees are looking to tie Pickford down to a new contract on Merseyside. He stormed the end of season award ceremony, picking up players' player and fans' player of the year.

"I've spent six years in England", he said. When I took my decision to come back here from Paris it was to win the Premier League.

Hazard has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid along with the likes of Thibaut Courtois this summer. United are also reportedly monitoring Gary Cahill's situation at Chelsea in a window where numerous exits from The Blues are expected.

Then they still had Ronaldo, who began the season off colour, and while now the club feels that Benzema and Bale can step up a level, they would prefer to have another danger man. The Venezuela global has a £16.5m release clause in his West Brom contract.
