Chelsea target Bernard discussing Premier League move

  Chelsea target Bernard discussing Premier League move Near the end of last year, Chelsea were cited as one of a number of top Premier League clubs to have expressed an interest in Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker Bernard. The Brazilian attacker has been in excellent form for the Ukrainian side throughout the course of the season and his performances have been attracting plenty of interest from elsewhere. Bernard’s long tenure with Shakhtar is set to come to an end when the summer comes around, though. His contract expires in June and he appears to already be staging talks with other clubs. According to Brazilian news outlet Globo Esporte, the attacking midfielder is indeed in talks with clubs from China, Italy and, rather interestingly, England. Chelsea will undoubtedly be keen to add to their squad ahead of next season and on a free transfer, it’d come as no surprise to see them pursue a deal for Bernard. The 25-year-old is yet to play for a Premier League side, but it seems he is pondering a move to England this summer.

A 52nd-minute goal by Edin Dzeko levelled the aggregate score at 2-2, which, combined with Cengiz Under's crucial first-leg goal at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv, proved enough to see the Italian outfit through on the away-goal rule.

A 79th-minute red card to Ivan Ordec all but scuppered any attempt at a comeback for Shakhtar, as Roma saw out the result with little fanfare before celebrating in front of a raucous home crowd.

Roma's successful round of 16 exploits sees the club advance to the final eight of the tournament for the first time since the 2007-08 season, the year that the Italian outfit defeated Real Madrid 2-1 in both legs before losing to Manchester United in the next round. Coupled with Juventus' successes over Tottenham, this result also marks the first time two Italian teams have advanced to this stage in 11 seasons.

The 1-0 scoreline also sees Roma preserve its perfect goals-against record at the Stadio Olimpico in Champions League play this season, having previously recorded a 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid, a 3-0 win over Chelsea, and a 1-0 win over Qarabag in the group stage of the competition.
