Chelsea right wing-back Reece James has shared a defiant message in the wake of the defeat to Liverpool in the FA Cup final on Saturday evening. The Blues were beaten on penalties for the second time in a final this season but the Blues fan favourite was eager to seek positives in defeat.

Taking to Instagram, James wrote: Its very painful to lose another final. Penalties are never a true reflection of the game. What doesnt kill you makes you stronger. The marathon continues. Thank you for the support.

Todd Boehly facing Cesar Azpilicueta challenge

Prospective Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is yet to officially begin his reign as Roman Abramovichs successor but may already be facing his first transfer challenge. Boehlys consortium beat off a number of candidates to be accepted as the new owners with the final details of the deal being ironed out.

But the future of captain Cesar Azpilicueta hangs in the balance. According to Spanish outlet Sport via Sport Witness, the Spaniard is insisting he had a verbal agreement in place with Roman Abramovich that would see him leave on a free transfer this summer. He now wants Boehly to honour that agreement as well, rather than trigger an extension.

Chelsea were reportedly pushing ahead in their attempts to sign Leeds United winger Raphinha this summer until Roman Abramovich was hit with sanctions. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Blues then had to put all negotiations on hold allowing Barcelona to take the lead.

English clubs like Newcastle have explored the Raphinha idea in recent months but they know that the players priority is now Barcelona, Romano wrote in hisCaught Offsidecolumn. Chelsea had been pushing for Raphinha as summer target since January, but sanctions have frozen negotiations and Barca are now leading the race.
