Guardiola sends warning message to Chelsea, Tuchel told board to sign £90m world-class player

Pep Guardiola has sent a warning message to Chelsea, ahead of their Champions League final clash to determine which team will be winning the cup.

Ahead of the Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City on May 29, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists he has an incredible good feeling about the game.

Manchester City have never been champions of Europe before but Guardiola is confident ahead of the game against Chelsea.

“When you arrive at the final of the Champions League it’s an incredible success,” Guardiola said.

“It helps a lot to have already won the Premier League and Carabao Cup. It’s been a good season but of course it’s not enough right now.

“I have an incredible good feeling that we will do well and we’ll play a good game in the final. We will arrive in the correct way to be competitors and enjoy the moment.”

Tuchel told board to sign £90m player Lampard tried to sign

According to The Telegraph, the Blues will renew interest for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice this summer.

Rice, who was released by Chelsea’s academy at the age of 14, is one of the most coveted young players in Europe after superb recent form for the Hammers and England.

The West Ham midfielder was a key transfer target for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea last summer but a move failed to materialise.

Chelsea refused to pay West Ham’s valuation of £70million for Rice, with Lampard’s insistence on the deal causing friction with club chiefs, who felt an expensive move for someone they had previously released would be embarrassing.

It was believed a move for Rice was over following the arrival of Thomas Tuchel in January but the German is said to rate the 22-year-old highly and will recommend him as one of several players he wants the club to sign this summer.

Premier League rivals Manchester United and Manchester City are also interested in signing the West Ham midfielder but it is believed Rice prefers a move to Chelsea.

West Ham demanded £70million for Rice last summer but it is believed to have risen to £90million after another impressive season for West Ham.
