Danny Drinkwater has dropped a massive hint after tagging Leicester defender Ben Chilwell in an Instagram post along with the midfielder’s current club Chelsea.

The 23-year-old left-back is reportedly regarded as a priority signing by Frank Lampard as he aims to strengthen his defensive options at Stamford Bridge.

Doubts remain over the futures of Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso, and Chilwell is thought to be top of the Blues’ list after his impressive season at the King Power Stadium.

The Blues have already spent heavily this summer to bring in forwards Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, while negotiations are ongoing with Bayer Leverkusen for young star Kai Havertz.

But Drinkwater has got Chelsea fans talking about Chilwell after uploading a picture with England international on the social media on Monday afternoon.

The Chelsea midfielder, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Leicester three years ago, posted a picture of himself standing next to the 23-year-old on holiday, with the the Greek island of Mykonos stated as the location.

However, some wanted the midfielder to deliver a warning that Chelsea do have alternatives to Chilwell – such as Ajax star Nicolas Tagliafico – if Leicester do not drop their price, with one writing: ‘Ben tell Lei to lower their demands or we’re going for Tagliafico.’

Another agreed, stating: ‘Tell him to lower Leicester’s price… no way we paying 60-80 mil’, while another added: ‘Danny I see what you’re doing there.. tell him if they bring their price down we can talk business’.

Some however were left thoroughly unimpressed, with one saying: ‘Tell him to stay away from us.’

The 33-year-old Uruguayan has made a shock £3.7million move to LaLiga rivals Atletico Madrid.

New Barca boss Ronald Koeman decided the former Liverpool striker was not in his plans for the future.

Suarez gave a tearful exit interview on Thursday, where he spoke of the move coming as a ‘surprise’ before thanking Barcelona for ‘having faith in me’.

He then made his way to the Barca dressing room to clear out his locker for the final time.

A photo of him was on the front, with Sergio Busquets having the locker to the right.

Suarez posed in front of the metal cabinet before his three children, Delfina, Benjamin and Lautaro.

Speaking about his move to Atletico, Suarez said: “This is such a surprise, I didn’t really have anything prepared.

“I just want to say the club has always had so much confidence in me since 2014 when they signed me.

“In the conditions that I came here, surrounding me from the mistake that I made with the confidence they had in me, it wasn’t easy to accept.

“The coaches and my team-mates, the way they accepted me when I came, it was amazing.”

At his last press conference as a Barcelona player, Suarez also revealed how he was told to ‘watch out’ for Lionel Messi when he joined the Catalans.

He went on to become best friends with the Argentinian.

Suarez added: “Many people tell you about Messi when you arrive at Barca.

“They say, ‘watch out for Leo’, he’s another striker. [But] many things are invented.”

It has been revealed that Suarez will reportedly face a SIXTY PER CENT wage drop after joining Atletico Madrid.

Marca reports that Suarez will earn around £8.3million a year with his new club.

That works out at £160,000 a week – he was earning a whopping £405,000 a week at the Nou Camp.

But Barca have been very vocal about how the coronavirus pandemic has hit their finances.

And seemingly the time is right to get Suarez off the wage bill.

Suarez leaves the Camp Nou as the club’s third-highest goalscorer of all time following 198 strikes in 283 appearances for the club.

Since his move from Liverpool, he has also won four LaLiga titles, four Copa del Reys and the Champions League and Club World Cup in 2015.

Questions remain over Toronto Wolfpack’s figures ahead of crucial meeting

questions remain over toronto wolfpacks figures ahead of crucial meeting

TORONTO Wolfpack must convince Super League clubs their figures are serious as they battle to stay in Super League.

For one doubter has dubbed them ‘a great work of fiction.’

 Carlo LiVolsi hopes to keep Toronto in Super League, but doubts remain

And SunSport understands the Canadian side has asked for £2 million worth of central distribution, which is MORE than some other sides already get!

They are also believed to have factored in a forecast of up to £500,000 a year from a private equity investment deal into Super League, which has not yet happened.

Wolfpack sources also suspect they may not even get a definite yes to remaining in Super League today – the best they can get is asking prospective owner Carlo LiVolsi to present to the other 11 sides next week.

Clubs and the Super League board meet today to decide on whether to give Toronto the chance to stay in the top flight after withdrawing for 2020 or kick them out.

Toronto need seven votes of 13 – all 11 clubs plus the Super League governing body and the Rugby Football League get one – to progress.

However, the 80-page document they submitted, plus the extra information they were asked for, has not answered all doubts.

LiVolsi’s aims are also being questioned – does he have rugby league’s future at heart or is he just looking for something to launch a range of grooming products?

SunSport has been told by one club boss they also doubt the figures over their projected revenues in the paperwork.

LiVolsi has promised to pay all owed wages to players – four months’ worth totalling more than £500,000 – if he is given the go ahead to take Toronto over.

And boss Brian McDermott is in regular contact with players currently under contract, including Sonny Bill Williams, while those who have agreed to join are also still committed.

A major PR offensive has been launched, highlighting the fact the Wolfpack attracted crowds of 10,000 on the other side of the Atlantic, where they have not been able to play because of Covid-19.

However, the other clubs and the governing bodies want proof a second chance will work and not leave them embarrassed again further down the line.

Back at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, the future Hall of Famer lost her NXT Title to Io Shirai during a triple threat match that also included Rhea Ripley.

Following that defeat it was revealed the 5ft 10in ‘Queen’ was taking time off to address an issue with her breast implants.

Now the star has provided her Instagram followers with an update on her condition – and it was a positive one.

Sharing a selfie snap of her looking in the mirror and showing off her abs, Charlotte wrote that it was her first time at the gym for eight weeks and that she’s “ready to find [her] groove again.”

It has not been confirmed when the most decorated women’s champ in WWE history would head back to the ring.

Although her ‘Nature Boy’ father did claim she would likely be gone for a year after undergoing the knife.

He said: “She’s fine, but this time she knows, and her personal physician and the company doctors have reinforced it, that she can’t hurry the process.

“Otherwise, we’re going to be right back. With the stuff that she does, the moonsaults and the way she lands and taking knees and everything, she’s got to be a 100 per cent.”

However, Charlotte did move to reassure fans her absence will not be that long.

She recently tweeted that she will be competing with her fellow females again in time for WrestleMania 37.

That event is currently scheduled to take place in March.
