Nemanja Matic has already agreed personal terms with Manchester United as the midfielder edges closer to leaving Chelsea, according to reports.

We should not sell top players to rivals and with CL we must surely hold on to players like Matic - we will need a much larger squad of trusted starters than last season when no CL.

{Ed002's Note - The squad size is limited. Players must leave if players are to be added.}

Bakoyoko replaces Matic, so effectively 1 in 1 out. And he'll be an upgrade.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Jun 2017 17:36:19
You say bakayoko will be an upgrade and you know this for sure.

I'm not suggesting he wouldn't be an upgrade but it's only 50/ 50 chance he will. How many good players come to the PL and struggle.

I've seen bakayoko have an amazing game he looked an absolute beast but then I watched him again and he was missing the entire game so it's not guaranteed that he's an upgrade.

I do believe Ed002 said a few teams where unsure on bakayoko as they are worried he's not ready Ed002 correct me if I'm wrong.

As a MU fan I'd be very happy if we snapped up Matic he's quality in the role he plays.

I'd much rather have Matic than Bakayoko at this time

Just my opinion lads.

{Ed002's Note - It is true there have been concerns about Bakayoko Dave but MU and Chelsea continued to push.}

Agree0 2Disagree

Could say exactly the same thing about matic mate. So many games just by-passed him. Was caught in possession too many time, too slow on the ball and players just went through his tackles. and he has premiership experience, so it's not like he's new to the league and doesn't know what it's like.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Jun 2017 18:30:09
Totally agree with Adam. In his first season at Chelsea he looked liked a world beater, but since then he has really failed to impress. He's looked very clumsy and lacks that attacking edge that we have needed more in games. Some of our best performances last season have been in games that he sat out and Fabregas started along side Kante instead.
From what I've seen of Bakayoko he is a great ball winner but also looks to drive forward and start attacking plays rather than just pass the ball backwards and sideways like matic and also has youth on his side and is nowhere neare his prime yet.
By all means united will be signing a strong premiership player in matic and will certainly be an upgrade on feillani but im very happy with the clubs decision to sell matic on and upgrade with bakayoko.

Agree1 1Disagree

23 Jun 2017 19:51:22
Matic won't be any big loss men i wouldn't worry he will only boost our income for transfers.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2017 19:51:38
The matic in his first season apon returning to Chelsea set the bar so high. That matic I wouldn't sell for the price of 5 bakayoko's . unfortunately he has not produced anywhere near that standard of late.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Jun 2017 20:33:51
Bakayoko is an upgrade and also young. Great signing.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Jun 2017 21:29:15
I just don't want us to strengthen United. Selling Them Matic essentially gives them the PL's strongest midfield.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Jun 2017 22:34:29
Stringest midfield Jackson? Pogba, matic, Herrera and feillani? Taking into account that we are probably selling matic to united then only one of them players would get anywhere near our 1st eleven and that would be pogba, but the Juve Pogba not the shower of crap that turned in for United last season.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jun 2017 23:19:54
How would matic make united have the best midfield your dreaming he's lanky slow awkward on the ball very average at passing no range from long passes never scores.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2017 23:38:49
Jackson, what exactly are you smoking over there?

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 06:35:13
I don't smoke, Adam. I don't like putting stuff like that in my body ;-) That said, Matic would do extremely well in a holding role for United. It'd allow Pogba and Herrero to push all over the pitch and exert influence. He'd be a terrific addition for them.

Agree0 0Disagree

Hes a bamg on average defensive modfielder he only looked ok this year cause of kante.

Talk from sky Italia that we have bid for VVD. Has the situation changed regarding this Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the interest and the situation. Chelsea are not keen at the asking price.}

Hi ed, does that apply to rumoured figures for 30yr old bonucci,

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed. At the right price Chelsea are interested in players.}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2017 10:55:19
I don't blame them with the price being quoted. Cheers ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

Hi Ed, is there any substance to the rumours about Chelsea and United talking to Bayern about Lewandowski?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

Thank you Ed.

Nathan Baxter has joined Woking for the duration of the season.

The question I'm sure everyone is asking Ed002. Have we got an agreement with Alex Sandro and Juventus to sign him? If not, is it possible we'll sort a deal soon?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer quesions about timing.}

Believable1 0Unbelievable

19 Jun 2017 09:31:57
Ed do we habpve an agreement with sandro or juventus and has sandro indicated he would want to come
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - You really are not getting what I am saying at all. I am not going to give blow-by-blow updates.}

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jun 2017 17:40:07
Is it safe to say we haven't agreed a fee for him yet?

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jun 2017 18:13:51
He's probably going to sign the contract extension Juve have offered him.

Agree0 9Disagree

17 Jun 2017 14:33:49
I see on sky sports it's reporting we have had a bid rejected for Alex Sandro any truth I wonder.

{Ed018's Note - it sounds legitimate.}

Believable4 0Unbelievable

17 Jun 2017 15:12:35
The quote seemed to indicate the rejected bid wasn't the end of the story. I think this one could happen.

Higuain has sent a goodbye video message to Dani Alves too. He said earlier in the week that he wants to play in the EPL before retiring. Picking him up on a free would be great business.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Jun 2017 16:03:26
I agree seems like a deal is on the club's president said he would not stand in the players way if he chose to leave.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jun 2017 18:34:06
I'm thinking that the move could happen if Sandro is willing to express a desire to move. Without the player's desire it won't happen.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jun 2017 22:00:03
Wayne Rooney wanted to join Chelsea in 2013 and we know how that adventure ended.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jun 2017 22:43:19
Of course, anitbot, but Marotta himself has already said that in the end the player has the power to decide. If we make a good offer (which I'd like to believe 50-60 million is, especially for a fullback) and Sandro makes it clear he'd like to join us then I think it could happen. It's a big "if" though.

Why would Sandro want to leave Juve for Chelsea? We can easily double his current wages.

Agree0 1Disagree

17 Jun 2017 23:34:58
U guys have been calling this all month i guess ye sniffed a bid was going to happen will he be a big upgrade on alonso should we sign him.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2017 07:59:35
He's probably the best leftback in the world right now, absolutely world class. I really like Alonso, but if you've got the chance to get a guy like Sandro then you do just that.
In the CL he hounded Messi and Neymar, they couldn't do anything against him. Top class player, but very unlikely we'll get him.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2017 19:58:00
Would you not rather alaba or rose if they're attainable of course
I'd love to see rose English and good both defensively and offensively.

Hey Ed

Was just wondering when decisions are made on the younger players such as Abraham, chalobah, baker and loftus.

Would appreciate it if you could share who is interested in them.

{Ed002's Note - Over the summer. (a) TA - Newcastle, Brighton, Anderlecht and Leicester. (b) NC - Not sure. (c) LB - Swansea, Ajax, Bournemouth. (d) RLC - Stoke, Brifgton, Bournemouth and Newcastle - could also potentially be sold if a decent offer arrived.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

Selling RLC now would be incredibly dumb. We should wait and see what he does when he's getting consistent minutes (something none of our coaches have ever given him, he's never had a fair chance) . A season of consistent playing time could see him show the talent he obviously has in abundance.
I've got a feeling I'll be left feeling disappointed at the end of the summer.

Agree2 1Disagree

16 Jun 2017 23:51:10
RLC got more opportunities than any other Chelsea academy player, and he flopped. He needs much more game which he will get in some smaller club like Baker did.
Better loan than sell, agreed!

Agree2 1Disagree

17 Jun 2017 07:46:38
20 minutes off the bench every 2 months does not equal getting an equal opportunity. Be realistic. Last time he played this season he made a very good impact off the bench against Stoke. After that Conte didn't use him again. Getting an opportunity would've meant that after that good sub appearance, Conte played him again (either starting him or subbing him in a little earlier the game after) . It's a damn shame.
RLC will make it at the top. We'll be fools to sell him.

Agree3 0Disagree

17 Jun 2017 08:23:51
I'm still on the fence on RLC. There's no doubt he's got fantastic attributes and strength. My issue is he's never really nailed down a position. go back to the youth teams and he always played best in a 3-man midfield, surrounded by players like Baker, Houghton, Colkett, Palmer, etc. He's not shown the tactical discipline to play as a two in midfield or the finesse/ skill to play further forward. it seems he's played further forward when he gets his (limited) opportunities as a damage limitation exercise.

For England youth teams he plays behind the striker and is successful as he can bully less physical players due to his size and power.

For me, RLC, Musonda and Boga are interesting as they've developed above youth football but are finding it really hard to make an impact at senior level. This will be a defining season for all three.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Jun 2017 17:04:27
The problem with RLC though is that he doesn't put the shift in. How many times this season he looled slugish? I believe the boy should put his head down and work his socks off.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jun 2017 23:35:10
RLC has a very comparable game to Yaya Toure and Paul Pogba. A physical monster with a lot of ability with the ball however doesn't necessarily cover a ton of ground and works best in a 3 man midfield with 2 other guys who are all over the place. Unfortunately this position doesn't really exist in Conte's 343. The system has to suit the player in order to be successful.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jun 2017 12:32:37
Hi ed just a question.
With Patrick Aubameyang likely to leave BVB, do Chelsea hold any interest in player specially with the news that PSG are not willing to spend big on another striker.

{Ed002's Note - Aubameyang is a player Chelsea has shown interest in over recent years but that drifted away when he had his heart set on a move elsewhere.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

16 Jun 2017 11:22:44
Ed, does the club still hold an interest in Koulibaly after the failed pursuit last summer? Is there any indication Napoli would be more willing to do a deal?

{Ed002's Note - Interest in Koulibaly remains but dealing with his club is difficult.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

16 Jun 2017 21:22:29
Yes it is bloody DeLaurentis. Better in making movies than running a club.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jun 2017 17:39:40
Hey Ed, Sassuolos president recently spoke of an important offer from abroad for Domenico Berardi. Any chance this is us? I was keen on him or Bernadeschi but as you state Berna might be off to Juve.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea remain keen on Berardi but there are dependencies that make any move unlikely right now.}

Believable2 0Unbelievable

17 Jun 2017 08:40:32
Do these dependencies revolve around Juves supposed first option on him or something else?
