Mbappe breaks silence

Kylian Mbappe remained coy when he was asked about his future at Paris Saint-Germain during the international break. The 24-year-old striker faces an increasingly uncertain future in the French capital, with his contract at Les Parc des Princes set to expire at the end of the season.

With Mbappe keeping his options open, the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Real Madrid have been mooted as a potential destination. In an interview with French publication Telefoot, as quoted by GFNF, he remained tight-lipped on his future.

"It’s something I don’t want to talk about," said Mbappe. "Especially since I already did it in June and it took up a big part of the international break. I want us to talk more about the national team, rather than me talking about something that will be resolved one day, so there will be time to talk about that."

Newcastle boost

Newcastle have been dealt a major boost ahead of their meeting with Chelsea this weekend. Eddie Howe will welcome the Blues to St. James' Park on Saturday afternoon in what is expected to be a blockbuster clash.

The Magpues have struggled to juggle a growing injury list, but a win against the Blues could be the perfect catalyst ahead of a busy couple of weeks. In fact, according to Craig Hope, the Daily Mail's north-east football correspondent, Howe is expected to welcome back two big players from the treatment room this week.

The report states that Miguel Almiron and Alexander Isak will be fit to face Chelsea this weekend, meanwhile Sean Longstaff remains a doubt despite his ankle issue beginning to 'settle quickly'. Hope adds that Sven Botman has 'progressed well' over the international break and 'should' avoid surgery if his knee doesn't swell up again.

Toney interest

Chelsea are strongly considering making a big-money offer to Brentford in the January transfer window for striker Ivan Toney, understands. The 27-year-old forward is set to return to action in the new year with his eight-month ban to come to an end.

Chelsea are one of numerous clubs with an interest in Toney. The Blues have liked the striker for a long time now and were considering making a move for him in the summer of 2022, prior to his long-term ban.

It is no secret that Chelsea are on the hunt for a new No.9. Nicolas Jackson is very highly-rated at the club and has been in superb form over the last couple of games but adding a proven goalscorer in January will ease the burden on the Senegalese striker somewhat.
