Todd Boehly & Hansjorg Wyss lead race to buy Chelsea from Roman Abramovich, Haaland MEETS Barca boss Xavi – updates

    Good morning footy fans

    Timo Werner wants showdown talks with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel over his future at the club.

    A move back to Germany seems likely with Borussia Dortmund interested in the 25-year-old.

    However, his high wages could prove a stumbling block for the club sitting second in the Bundesliga table.

    Werner’s representatives are set to meet with Chelsea officials in the approaching weeks to discuss their future, according to Goal.

    Meanwhile, Erling Haaland has met with Barcelona boss Xavi ahead of a possible summer transfer, according to reports.

    L’Esportiu claims Xavi and club chief Jordi Cruyff both met with Haaland on a trip to Dortmund.

    They are hoping to convince the striker to join them ahead of Man Utd and Man City.

    And Haaland reportedly favours a move to Spain over England.

    Finally, Newcastle are reportedly set to launch a £40million bid for Napoli star Fabian Ruiz.

    That’s despite facing fierce competition from Man Utd, Arsenal and other European giants.

    Corriere dello Sport claims Newcastle failed to land the midfielder in January due to their precarious position in the table.

    But with the Magpies looking on course to avoid relegation, they believe they can finally lure Ruiz to St James’ this summer.
