Sky Italia reporting that Chelsea will make a bid for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly. £38m bid reported.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

27 Jul 2016 17:23:28
And reports that Mustafi is available for only 25m euros. If that is true, the club should be all over that deal!

Agree2 Disagree4

27 Jul 2016 17:41:01
In my humble opinion Mustafi is just another Cahill, on his day he is very good if he has a strong leader next to him, but if he does not have that kind of player next to him to organise and talk him through the game I think he tends to struggle and gets caught out of position. From what I have seen of Mustafi he is a similar sort of player. We need leaders and strong characters, especially through the spine of the team.

I know we're in crazy season with the TV money but a centre half for £38million who has 6 caps for Senegal seems absurd. I'm not doubting the lads quality, just smacks of De Laurentis being a typically hard negotiator.

Agree1 Disagree2

27 Jul 2016 19:28:16
Stones £50+ million and how many caps for England?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 19:34:34
What of Higuain to Juve for €90m? The market is crazy man, we have to ride along or we will be left behind.

Agree3 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 19:45:54
Don't worry about it not our money! Lol.

27 Jul 2016 20:59:50
Hitman, I don't think Stones is worth that money either!

Sit back and enjoy the transfer window.

Any truth in the tevez rumours? Cheers.

Struggling to believe them myself; although he is exactly the type of striker we need.

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 16:30:08
Thought it was nonsense.

He was quoted as saying "Chelsea want me but I want to stay at Boca"

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 12:18:37
The only player I've seen whose been linked with a permanent exit is Cuadrado. Who seems to be intent on going back to Italy.


Begovic - Everton.
Matic - Juventus.
Cuadrado - Inter, AC, Juventus.

Eds can you offer up anymore?

Believable3 Unbelievable5

23 Jul 2016 17:00:17
A few questions
Why would Begovic leave? He has decent pay and we don't need to sell him
Conte said he likes Cuadrado so if he was to go it would be ironic
Matic is a good squad player; he had a blip last season but he should be effective this season.

Agree4 Disagree2

23 Jul 2016 20:52:00
Perhaps Begovic would like to play 1st team football.?

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 21:33:37
Begovic wants more games.
Cuadrado wants to stay in Italy. And Chelsea won't want an unhappy player on their books.
Matic - can see Kante playing more then him.

Agree2 Disagree3

24 Jul 2016 08:42:44
An update, if possible, would be interesting but in addition to those listed and excluding those that have been on tour, has anything come out recently about the likes of Van Ginkel, Marin and Salah?
Personally I can't see any meritin keeping quite a few of our fringe players and would think any funds generated and removing them from our wage bill makes perfect sense.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 10:12:30
I asked ed002 about salah a while back and he said he won't be playing for Chelsea again so consider him as good as gone. Surely Marin has no Chelsea future either and hopefully he'll be sold asap. MVG has potential but was decidedly average at Stoke so it would surprise if he isn't sold or loaned out again.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 15:52:51
Salah was officially sold. Fiorentina were continuing to try and get something from the transaction and sued; however UEFA ruled in Chelsea's favor.
Ed mentioned somewhat recently that the plan for MVG is either to be sold or loaned.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 22:04:01
Antonio Conte: Matic is not for sale.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 22:58:16
Wonder if there is anything in this cavani to Chelsea rumour? Or is it just recycled rubbish. I would take him over morata anyday.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Jul 2016 23:30:38
Probably recycled rubbish but I agree with you. Think his style of play would work perfectly in the prem. Surely PSG wouldn't want to sell after already losing Ibra though. Wouldn't want him if it meant losing Costa though.

Agree4 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 23:34:07
Not sure why people don't rate morata, I think he's very good. He's not worth £60-£70m but with the extra money flying about the premiership, clubs will be held to ransom. Cavani would be a massive buy, I rate him really highly and was gutted we didn't sign him from Napoli. Lukaku i'm 50/ 50 on as he's scored bags of goals in the league but first touch is awful for a pro footballer, having said that imagine Costa and lukaku together up top. frightening.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Jul 2016 00:25:45
Morata is a good player but not worth more than 30 million Imo. Cavani and Costa up front would be amence. Plus cavani can play out wide also, his versatility is a big draw. Can't see it happening. Morata is looking more and more unlikely. I'm a big fan of lukaku as a player but his history is a concern. Barbosa I must admit I haven't seen play so I won't comment. All of the above look a stretch witch leads me to ask who else is out there? I will also say I'm not to concerned as Costa and michy are solid and I'm a massive fan of traore. The fan in me though loves the rush of a new big name signing I won't deny.

{Ed018's Note - Cavani does not want to play out wide. It's been a bit of an issue at PSG the last few years. I'm sure he is glad he will get to play through the middle now that Ibrahimovic has left}

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 12:17:00
Who cares about what we pay? Are you paying it out your pocket? Don't get why supporters get so worked up over the figures. The club deal with all that. Sounds like we want to be like Arsenal - oh can't pay that as our books won't look good. What a load of rubbish. The board know what they are doing. Who cares if we pay £1 or £100m for a player. It doesn't affect your wallet so why worry?

Agree1 Disagree1

23 Jul 2016 10:30:41
Very true ed18. Regardless of any future business kante is the signing of the summer! Unbelievable signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 15:59:17
Only person getting worked up is you mate. Have a kitkat. I don't happen to think a player is worth what is quoted, which is a valid point! Also don't want to see my club get held to ransom for any player!

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Jul 2016 21:43:05
hardly getting worked up. Just don't understand why people are so bothered about how much we pay and how much a player is worth.
If the club don't want to put they won't pay. It's simple isn't it?

With the amount of money in the sport nowadays is it surprising how much players are going for?

Agree0 Disagree2

23 Jul 2016 22:22:54
It's a site were transfers are discussed. An integral part of a transfer is the price a player goes for? Why would you be so surprised this is talked about? I happen to think a particular player is overpriced, does not mean I'm overly bothered about it. It means I think he is over priced! i'm ok with money being spent, let's face it in today's inflated market you have no choice. But once it's spent well.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 11:25:09
Sources saying it will cost chelsea £67mil to sign morata. The question is will chelsea pay it?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Jul 2016 13:35:05
£8m cheaper then Lukaku (apparently! )
£42m more expensive then Barbosa!

Only Chelsea knows mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 14:12:10
Why not throw in another 30 and steal pogba lol now that would be funny imagine joses face.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 15:13:01
It's only another £20m if I'm right in thinking. We offered €100m last year. And United have offered €120m.

Think that's correct, isn't it?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 20:51:38
Pogba to Chelsea is not happening. it's been confirmed many times.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 23:47:11
We're not saying that Steve. Think everyone and his dog knows that Chelsea aren't signing Paul Pogba.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jul 2016 20:39:09
Good Evening Eds. are there any updates on signings that your able to share with us? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

No worries. thanks Ed002. Have a nice evening pal!

Silly season finally kicking off today you always know it's the first day when rumours start with Chelsea submitted a bid of £41.7m for cavani! Theses journalists do they just retype of crap year after year.

Welcome all to silly season.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

21 Jul 2016 16:58:29
Haha haven't seen that one myself. How they come up with that rubbish?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2016 09:00:01
Rumours coming out of Italy that Chelsea have submitted a €60m for Lukaku. If that's the case, surely spells the end of Costa?

Believable0 Unbelievable2

21 Jul 2016 10:06:08
Not necessary. Chelsea needs one more striker.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Jul 2016 10:34:06
Maybe but Costa can play off the striker! He played deeper off falcao when they were at Madrid and they were deadly! Costa just off lukaku now that could be one hell of a duo.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Jul 2016 22:02:36
Oh dear have we now really bid 60 m euros for lukaku.

Believable1 Unbelievable3

20 Jul 2016 23:21:12
I'd rather bid 60 for Lukaku than 80 for morata or 120 for pogba.

Agree6 Disagree4

21 Jul 2016 00:01:39
Both of them are ridiculously overpriced. Lukaku's first touch is utterly dreadful and Morata could barely get into Juventus' team last season.

Agree6 Disagree1

21 Jul 2016 08:21:24
Agree with gianfranco 60 for Lukas u is much better than than 85 for mortar. He has at least proved he can score in the prem.

Agree2 Disagree1

21 Jul 2016 08:35:33
Please not Lukaku, he is NOT chelsea quality, as KTBFFH says his first touch is dreadful. This will not improve, you either got it or you ain't, he ain't and it's not going to miraculously appear! The sale to Everton was a great bit of business for us, let it be and move on.

Agree3 Disagree3

21 Jul 2016 09:02:58
Still knows where the net is though. 18 goals in a mid table side. Has all the attributes to be a top striker. Just needs to work on his 1st touch and attitude.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jul 2016 09:54:12
Knows where the net is tho. Proven in the premiership. Unlike Morata who couldn't even get in Juve team last season.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Jul 2016 09:54:13
-------pig ignorant trash removed----------

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2016 14:57:14
Lukaku has a touch like a championship player, I personally wouldn't take him on a free transfer, I don't and have never seen what all the fuss is / was other than he was built big for a 16 year old boy, I do like morata iveseen quite a lot of him and would love us to sign him, the money doesn't bother me, I don't pay attention to it, I don't care if he costs 7 million or 70 million if He's the striker we sign I'll be happy, I think Costa is off though, why spend 33 million on batman, then 60 million on lukaku/ morata for 1 of if not 2 of them to be on the bench, I think we will sign Costa replacement then he'll go.

Agree2 Disagree2

19 Jul 2016 20:41:17
Looking like Chelsea going all out for morata rather than barbosa! £70m a bit steep if you ask me though. How true these reports are I don't know! Any the eds got any information.

Believable0 Unbelievable7

19 Jul 2016 21:39:18
I'd take Higuain at 70 mil any day of the week. Morata is one player I really don't rate at all. If I was at the club i'd be doing everything to add a bit of mass and in turn strength to Traore and develop into a striker. I said it when we signed him and still believe he is world class.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Jul 2016 23:18:41
The problem is Higuain wouldn't be available for any less than his release clause (something like €94m) .

If we are serious about playing two up front and want to look within the squad Traore and potentially Solanke are ideal for the support striker role.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Jul 2016 00:28:35
Am I the only one that thinks traore will never make it at Chelsea. I just don't see a position for him in the team. If Costa goes, Madrid will play hard ball and try to milk Chelsea for every penny, but morata is not worth more than £50m even in today's stupid prices. A player not been mentioned for a while is aubameyang, maybe moving away from the physical forward that we are used to seeing at the bridge and bring a more pacey, mobile striker in.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Jul 2016 04:13:35
Shame if you ask me. I know my opinion means little, but i'd have much rather seen us get GB than Morata, especially at the ridiculous prices we are being quoted. I really don't think Morata is even that good :/
Certainly not world record striker money good!
I know strikers have to do more than score goals, but to me that's their main function and he simply doesn't excel at that, and I don't really think any of our other players do either, other than Costa and Michy looking at previous goal returns, who realistically only one of is likely to be on the pitch at a time alongside Morata if he were to be on the pitch.
Leaves us lacking goal scorers in my opinion.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Jul 2016 04:14:49
The above is all of course hypothetical if Morata is signed and no new wide players or midfielders are signed, and if our other striking options remain the same (Plus Morata) going into the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2016 05:41:08
75 million for Morata if that is indeed true is extortionate, he hasn't done anything to warrant that price if and again big IF the reports of that price is true surely the club should offer the same amount for pogba but also include Matic i mean assuming costa now stays him and batsman be fine with traore has cover and hazard could play there should a disaster occur. i just don't see how madrid have come to the conclusion he's worth that kind of money.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2016 07:31:21
Lampsy_8 - Pogba will not be moving to Chelsea. as we know too well.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2016 10:56:55
yh i'm well aware just saying don't get why an attempt isn't made instead of forking out 70 mil for morata.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Jul 2016 11:55:10
It's not just about the transfer fee. It's the agents payment, signing on fee, wages. Etc. The amounts get more and more ridiculous the more you read about it.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2016 20:27:25
Think it's time something was done about the fees that the top agents earn in a transfer. Seems to me that half the discussion in any transfer revolves around how much money the agent will get.
