Chelsea legend William Gallas has urged his onetime club to target a pair of Manchester United players during the summer transfer window. And the former Chelsea man also passed judgement on on a couple of Blues stars: Reece James and Conor Gallagher. In addition to covering that topic, The Pride of London take a look at another area of interest to CFC supporters.

Gallas knows Chelsea FC very well indeed. He lifted four trophies with the west London team. His Blues silverware is as follows: two Premier League titles, one English League Cup (also known as the Carabao Cup in contemporary times), along with winning the English Super Cup. Therefore the retired professional is more than adequately qualified to weigh in on things at the Bridge.

On this occasion, the 46-year-old has been speaking on potential CFC sales and acquisitions. Or, to be more accurate, he's made recommendations to Mauricio Pochettino and Blues recruitment staff. Gallas believes that two United stars would make for fine recruits on Fulham Road: Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.

While I'd agree that both or either Red Devils players would enhance the Blues starting XI, an approach for the pair feels rather unlikely. Although, Chelsea aren't afraid to splash out and times are changing at Old Trafford. Gallas also made the wise suggestion to retain Conor Gallagher and Reece James. Is he right about the United men, and the Blues duo? Tell us on social media.

Pressure subsides on Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino, for now - report

Various stories in the football media indicate that Chelsea co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali will afford Pochettino time to properly install his methods and introduce more of his own signings. Not to mention the opportunity for the Argentine to instil his mindset, approach and sporting beliefs upon the Chels' squad.

This report further outlines Boehly and Eghbali's position, which is to 'stay loyal' to Pochettino - at the moment. However, a full appraisal of the former Tottenham Hotspur manager's maiden campaign at Stamford Bridge will transpire over the offseason, apparently. That type of review will be pretty standard, even for overly successful bosses. A meticulous element which is presumably a part of more fortunate gaffers' prosperity.

According to the article, 'Poch' is quietly confident. He also feels that he has the continued backing of Chelsea Football Club's owners. Supposedly, plans are already in motion for transfer activity when the current season comes to an end. Keep up to date with PoL for more on this and every Blues matter over the summer!
