Daily News: Nestorovski on giants radar, Minchev could join EPL, Ivanovic reveals the worst Chelsea dresser

According to our reporter from Macedonia, Schalke are determined to make a January move for Inter Zaprešić striker Ilija Nestorovski, who has been on Manchester United radar in summer.

The 25-year-old hitman started his career at FK Pobeda in the Macedonian city of Prilep, his city of birth. Joining the club’s youth academy in 2000, Nestorovski made his senior debut in 2006. Between 2006 and 2010, Nestorovski made 96 league appearances for Pobeda, scoring 39 goals.

The Macedonia international signed for NK Inter Zaprešić on the 9th of August, 2013 and extended his loan deal for another 12 months with Inter over the summer. In 2014 Inter signed Nestorovski on a permanent deal.

However, the 6ft centre-forward has been excellent this term, as he managed to score 8 goals in 11 appearances at Croatian HNL.

Premier League clubs Southampton and Tottenham considering the reinforcement in January and ready to splash the cash for Litex Lovech target-man Georgi Minchev.

The English clubs have already sent their Balkan based scouts to watch the 20-year-old’s performance. It’s believed that if either Saints or Spurs will sign Minchev, they allow Litex to keep the player on loan at least a year.

The talented hitman made his professional debut on 6 November 2013 in a Bulgarian Cup game against Sozopol, coming on as a substitute in the 83rd minute. He scored his first goal during the 5–2 away league win over Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

Bulgaria U21 international has been impressive this term and has scored 4 goals in 10 appearances for his parent club.

Branislav Ivanovic reveals the best dresser at Chelsea

Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic came to meet Jaden, a year nine student from the Football Beyond Borders Schools project, dressed in a club hoody and jeans, a look that did not reach the youngster’s high sartorial standards.

Chelsea right-back was hilariously and emphatically put down by a school child in a video you can watch below.

“It was just a once in a lifetime opportunity. He’s such a great person. He was incredible,” Jaden said on Brnislav after the interview

“If I did mess up a little bit, he would convince me to carry on.

“Even though I’m Manchester United all the way, I can see that Chelsea have some great players on and off the pitch!” – he added.
