Kepa is not having his best days in England. The Spaniard, from a huge talent for his position, has become almost undesirable. In fact, for the first time this season, he was not even selected in the starting lineup in a championship match. Instead, the 39-year-old Caballero took his place, looking back at the possibility of becoming a key player at Chelsea. Kepa's decision to leave in the summer is almost certain and in fact his replacements have already been found. Chelsea are between Pope and Onana.
Case of Onana
Onana is fighting in Ajax and in his case very good words are heard. The young Cameroonian is looking for a step above when he went with Ajax in the Champions League semi-final and it seems that he is close to doing so. According to Dutch media, Onana will become a resident of London this summer, for 50 million euros.
On the other hand, there is the case of Pope. The 27-year-old English goalkeeper is playing for Burnley and is having a very good season. Pope likes the people of Chelsea and on the island they take the move for granted. Pope "burns" for such a transfer and knows that he has a little time ahead of him to win the "blue" people.

At SPAL, Di Biaggio
Leonardo Seblici is expected to leave the bench at SPAL, with Luigi Di Biaggio being the favorite to replace him.

Leonardo Semblici will leave the bench of SPAL, after six years, according to the Italian media! The first candidate to succeed him is Luigi Di Biaggio, who is currently free in the market.
Di Biaggio has coached Italy and the small national teams of the "squadra azura" and seems to be the elite of the administration.
Juventus are reportedly willing to sell the Welshman.
According to Tuttosport, Juventus are planning to sell Aaron Ramsey at the end of the season, although they acquired him only last summer as a free agent from Arsenal.
The 29-year-old midfielder has played in 19 games for the Bianconeri, scoring two goals, but has suffered, as throughout his career, from muscle injuries.
Rivaldo supports Messi
Rivaldo took a stand on the issue that was created in Barcelona with Lionel Messi and Eric Abidal.
Eric Abidal's recent statements about what was happening during the days of Ernesto Valverde in Barcelona are still provoking reactions.
"Messi's reaction, through which he criticized Abidal, seems normal to me. Messi has every right to be angry with Abidal for the way he complained about the professionalism of some players in training, especially when he did not mention specific names. He challenged the whole team. It's hard to talk about it, those of us from the outside, but Messi just tried to defend himself and the team and keep his reputation. Abidal was naive when he said this in an interview, which of course would have a big impact on the media, forcing Messi to react. This problem must be solved internally. Abidal did not do it with deceit, but in the end he hurt the club ", Rivaldo commented.
Cavani refused any contact
Edinson Cavani knocked on the door ... with brief procedures for the people of Barcelona!
It is known that Barcelona tried even in the top five to bring in a central striker who would take the place of the injured Luis Suarez. However, the Catalans did not succeed and now they are running and not reaching.
According to the Spanish media at the time, Blaugrana had made an official offer to several footballers.
However, as the French L'Equipe reveals, Edinson Cavani was one of them! The Uruguayan took a breather from his departure from Paris and Barcelona tried to bring him to Barcelona.
The strange thing is that the Uruguayan denied any contact, emphasizing from the beginning to the Spaniards that he does not want to play in the Camp Nou.
His decision to play for Atletico Madrid has been made. This was at least shown by the attitude of the footballer towards the interest of the Catalans. The experienced ace interrupted the discussions before he was even informed about the duration and the financial part of the contract.
On the other hand, he may not have wanted to take the place of his teammate in the national team of Uruguay.
The only solution for Kike Setien's team now is to acquire a striker who is playing in the Spanish league.
