Chelsea handed dream Champions League draw as Man United, Liverpool & Man City learn simulated fate

Published

on

After securing their place in the Champions League round of 16, Chelsea will be keen to learn the next opponents they have to face in the defence of their crown.

The Blues booked their route through to the knockout rounds having finished as Group H runners-up behind Italian giants Juventus, meaning they are set to take on a group winner in the next round.

With all of the group stage fixtures now finished, Chelsea could still be matched up against Ajax, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich or Lille, with each of those sides finishing top of their respective groups.

Following a predicted run of the draw, Thomas Tuchel’s men have been handed somewhat of a dream scenario with an upcoming clash against the French outfit.

Whilst still undoubtedly a challenge, with Les Dogues having lifted the Ligue 1 title last term, they have not been as convincing this season. They won just three of their six group matches and at the time of writing sit 11th in the current French standings after an underwhelming start to their title defence.

The Blues would also want to have avoided both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid – whilst also being spared a clash with an Ajax side who won each of their six group games – something the predictor said they would.

Whilst it was not possible for Chelsea to be matched up against a fellow English side, there is no doubt that the Blues will look at Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City’s draw with intrigue.

In our particular simulation, the Reds were drawn against Serie A champions Inter Milan, having battled with their cross-city rivals AC during the group stages.

Meanwhile, Ralf Rangnick’s Manchester United were drawn to face Portuguese champions Sporting Clube de Portugal. Across the city, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City face a predicted showdown with Spanish outfit Villarreal.

Each of the four English clubs in the competition will learn their actual last-16 opponents on Monday, with the draw set to take place in Nyon.

Knockout fixtures will be a two-legged affair to be played throughout February and March 2022.

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
