Wonder if any of the Ed’s can throw any light on what’s happening re Rugani. It appeared ten days or more ago that it was a done deal, we seemed to have stuttered to a halt, not only on that but others a striker and keeper.
Trouble is we end up in a scenario that we are familiar with that we get to last week or two of the window, teams think your desperate and ask stupidly inflated price. Then we end with nobody, or more squad players.

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am concerned it is still likely to happen.}

Thanks for that, I think as time marches on we are getting a bit twitchy.

27 Jul 2018 23:16:45
according to that Alfred Pedulla fella on Twitter we are having our 400th summit tomorrow with Juve to finalise it 😂😂.

27 Jul 2018 23:25:28
That guy loves the word summit. Someone needs to take it away from him. Honestly, if his all the reports are true then tomorrow should be the 400th meeting about Rugani lol. Surely Marina by now probably knows everything about him.

28 Jul 2018 00:09:37
Ed1 what is is the latest with Rugani? Have Chelsea made and improved offer?

{Ed001's Note - no change mate, Chelsea have been busy in talks with Inter over Vecino.}

28 Jul 2018 08:14:48
Scoop! Thanks Ed001, this is why many of us use this site. Great! No one saw this coming. Vecino? I am sure the press doesn't know about this yet. Good one mate, thanks.

{Ed001's Note - actually it was Ed002 who passed it on to me.}

28 Jul 2018 08:16:41
Morning ed, im guessing that with Vecino being looked at that this could mean either Bakayoko or Drinkwater will be leaving the club soon?

{Ed001's Note - Drinkwater is available, Chelsea have been looking to offload him almost since he arrived.}

28 Jul 2018 08:25:10
Cheers for the info eds!
I would be quite excited if we signed him. Very underrated player.
Quick feet for a big lad, very direct when bringing the ball out of midfield, great passer and breaks up opposition attacks well. He reminds me of a more mobile and skillful version of Nemanja Matic.
A close friend of mine is from Milan and his family are huge Inter fans and he speaks very highly of Vecino.

28 Jul 2018 08:36:19
I think he played under Sarri at Empoli.

28 Jul 2018 08:53:17
Thanks for the info Ed001 what sort of player is he and who’s he a replacement for thankyou for all the info.

{Ed001's Note - not seen him play sorry. He is for central midfield though.}

28 Jul 2018 09:01:47
Must admit I'd never heard of him until today but reading comments makes me a little excited. Sarri seems to know what he wants and is targeting players he trusts. Thanks for the info on Vecino Super Frank. Have you seen a fair amount of him then? Would love to know more.

28 Jul 2018 09:11:23
By no means am I a Italian football expert but I try and watch as many Juve, Napoli and Inter matches as I can.
Vecino isn't a stand-out player by any means but he does a very good and important job for Inter when he's playing. Breaks up opposition attacks and brings the ball out of midfield . Has always looked very assured and comfortable on the ball to me.
As I said he reminds me very much of Namaja Matic but with a lot more mobile and more direct aspect to his game.
As a replacement for either Drinkwater or Bakayoko in the squad and depending on price, I believe it could be a very clever piece of business.

28 Jul 2018 09:18:09
Ed1 what is the situation with the Rugani transfer mate, it seems to be dragging out, any idea? The media are pretty much recycling old news. It has all the hallmarks of the Alex Sandro transfer from last year where we wasted the whole window chasing. Hope this doesn't happen again.

{Ed001's Note - nothing is happening right now as Chelsea are busy dealing with Inter.}

28 Jul 2018 09:19:59
Vecino and Zappacosta have the same agent- Alessandro Lucci. One would think that a swap deal could be on the cards (that is if Sarri would be willing to let Zappacosta leave) cos InterMilan are interested in Zappacosta.

28 Jul 2018 09:47:42
Haven't been posting for a while. hope everyone is well posters and eds?!

I'm generally excited to our new look and style of football we hope to play.
We (hope the club are too) need to be very patience with Sarri, as it's a big change in style and type of manager.
from what I understand and have read on Sarri he is more of a coach then a manager, he is happy to work with what he has got and looks to improve and get the best out of players. Which if I'm not mistaken what the Chelsea board love and wanted for a while now.

Can't wait see 433 again, we thrived under that in 2004/ 05.

Just need to get two wingers with pace and very direct which are hard to find now.

Midfield 3 of KANTE JORGINHO Vecino would be amazing with RLC and Barkley fighting for spots.

I don't mind if we sell Fab, love the guy but is very slow now for the prem.

I'd love to see BAILEY added to the team!

28 Jul 2018 09:54:20
Oh this sucks. Vecino is no more than decent. Spending money on him would make for a new Drinkwater scenario.

Talk about an uninspiring target.

28 Jul 2018 10:02:59
I think you might be underselling Vecino just abit there Jackson. If we were to manage to offload Drinkwater or Bakayoko he definitely would be a huge upgrade on either of the two.

28 Jul 2018 10:18:09
Is there any interest in Drinkwater or Bakayoko Ed? I appreciate the club may want to recoup most of the money they spent last season but surely that's unlikely as we got fully mugged off by Leicester and Monaco. I'd like a loan for Bakayoko as I'm still hoping he'll learn how to play football again.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about Bakayoko, but last I heard of Drinkwater is that they were struggling to offload him. I know Roy Hodgson wanted him at Palace, but I don't know if they have the money for him.}

28 Jul 2018 10:33:43
Yeah I can see why we're struggling, he probably got a huge payrise joining us so doubt many clubs would be willing to match his wages. I've heard Palace are close to signing Kouyate from WHU but they're even struggling to pay for him so not sure how possible it is. Ah well! Thanks for the info mate.

{Ed001's Note - I think West Ham have held that move back until they get a replacement in as they are also close to selling Obiang.}

28 Jul 2018 10:43:35
Would the deal for Vecino mean that Zappacosta would perhaps go to Inter?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry, but it is certainly a possibility.}

28 Jul 2018 13:27:04
You guys are great Ed001 and Ed002. Thanks to both of you.
