Demba Ba: No intention of leaving Stamford Bridge

Ba moved to Stamford Bridge from Newcastle in a £7m deal in January to support Fernando Torres, scoring six goals in 22 appearances as Chelsea secured a third-place finish in the Premier League.

But he faces extra competition next season following Romelu Lukaku's return from his loan spell at West Brom, while Mourinho is also keen to sign Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, for whom they had a bid turned down last week.

But Ba said: "I will stay. I think we need competition and we welcome the best players in this club.

"More competition is going to make me better anyway. All players want to play, not only centre forwards.

"We will all work in the same direction, for the club, to try and win the games."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
