"Morata seems to have a soft underbelly, he likes a tap-in but does not really like to go through the pain barrier to score goals".

"From our perspective, we don't want to sell anybody this window that we don't want to".

However, former Norwich City star Dublin seems to think that he would be a great signing for the west London club.

Browns will reportedly name offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens their next head coach
It appears he did enough to impress the front-office tandem of John Dorsey and Paul DePodesta and will come away with the job. As the team's success grew, Kitchens never campaigned to be Cleveland's coach but leading a team was always a goal.


According to Marca, Higuain's transfer to Chelsea will be approved in the coming days with Alvaro Morata set to leave the club as the Argentine comes in. The forward's agent is in London to finalize a move.

Sarri has not lost his desire to sign Higuain and it is claimed the Argentine has given the green light to the move.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri coached Higuain at Napoli where the player hit 36 goals during a memorable spell in Serie A in 2015/16, the most goals by a player in a single season in Italy's top flight.

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein to resign soon
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave his position soon after William Barr is confirmed as attorney general. The source said Rosenstein is not being forced out, and he has conveyed his thinking to the White House.


Today is Sarri's birthday, so if, as the report says, he has met Nicolas Higuain in London today, it says a lot about both his work-ethic and how desperate he is for a striker.

He has netted eight times in 20 appearances in all competitions so far this campaign, with the club's sporting director Leonardo warning the striker to step his game while he is still playing at the San Siro.

Higuain is on-loan at AC Milan from Juventus, which makes the deal a hard one to negotiate, especially in January.

Real Madrid sign City's Diaz
Real host struggling Leganes in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, while on Sunday they travel to face Real Betis in La Liga. On Monday, Diaz passed his medical and was unveiled by the club during a press conference at the Santiago Bernabeu.


Gonzalo Higuain, Callum Wilson and Mauro Icardi have been three strikers linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the past weeks, but Sarri must take a step back and assess his current squad and must surely see Olivier Giroud is the striking option that must lead the line for the Blues. Higuain is 32 and Chelsea don't offer a hefty wage for 30 plus players.
