Christensen (Complicated, club want to keep but he wants assurances)
RLC (Loan) - West Ham, Newcastle, Brighton
Begovic- Regular games, summer move
Eduardo (Atletico Madrid, not priority)
Donnarumma (Asking price is stupid, very unlikely)
Sidibe (Slim, but growing interest)

Heinrichs (Looked at, but no action)
Oscar De Marcos (Unlikely, mixed thoughts from club)

Thiago Maia (Asking price above valuation)
Neves (Not happening)

Brozovic (Not happening)
Nainggolan (Not happening)
Vidal (Agent open to right offer, Conte is keen)
Canahoglu (Chelsea are very keen, Jan move very possible)

Dolberg (Keen but lots of other interest, no Jan bid)
Isak (Chelsea keen, so are other clubs, future up in air)
Orsolini (Should move to Atalanta)
Aubameyang (Summer move happening, auction possible between Chelsea, Barcelona and City, potentially also Arsenal, China interest)

Not a problem. One quick question, what is the situation with Dom Solanke- I remember his contract being up this summer and he was being a pain behind the scenes, are the club looking to move him on or still agree a new deal?

{Ed002's Note - I really have no interest in discussing it.}

05 Jan 2017 16:26:37
No problem, thanks again.

05 Jan 2017 16:58:10
Thanks ed02 and thanks cfc for your summary.

05 Jan 2017 17:08:00
Thanks ED02.Great listen.

Just out of interest, if Barcelona were to sign aubamayang ahead of Chelsea or City which of their front 3 would they be looking to move on. Not even Barcelona could keep Suarez, messi, Neymar and aubamayang happy could they?

Calhanoglu is very over-rated and i wouldn't have him in any system we play and personally I definately don't see where he would fit in our 3-4-3 he has no defensive discipline for the midfield two but has no pace for the front three either.

I'd be over the moon with Van Dijk and Vidal. Vidal and Kante would be unreal together, Vidal would also give us them extra few goals from midfield.

I wouldn't be keen on Ricardo Rodriguez. Shaw and Ghoulam would be better options IMO.

What's the latest situation with Alexis Sanchez please Ed?

06 Jan 2017 10:24:29
Many thanks Ed002 (wonderful delivery on the pod by the way! ) and CFCFOREVER can only hope that the a couple of the v few possibilities are realised and in January as right now the squad looks a bit thin and additions should bring energy/ strengthen

06 Jan 2017 10:29:30
I too am not overly keen on Calhanoglou though one thing he would bring is set-piece delivery.

I wouldn't be so focused on the 3-4-3 tactic (though I do think that 3 at the back will be utilised more often than not) . I can see a time when we play more of a 3-5-2 with the 3 in midfield being like we used to have with Lampard, Essien and Ballack. power and energy. a midfield three of Kante and two of Bakayoko, Kessie or Vidal would be very interesting. Not a great deal of creativity but box to box midfielders is what I believe Conte favours in his formations.

For next season, I'd like to see Baker and Chalobah be used in the squad with RLC getting experience and Fabregas and Matic moved on.

06 Jan 2017 10:43:34
That was meant to read as RLC getting experience on loan

06 Jan 2017 17:53:48
If we are looking at that ac milan keeper what about going for pickford or butland we need some english in the team for the backbone of the team in my opinion and I didn't see gibson or keane in that list im taking it our interest has gone and agree with steve b would like to see more of chalobah next year and baker coming into the fold

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has no interest in them.}

06 Jan 2017 18:32:38
Thankyou for the reply 👍🏻

I'd also go for Butland over Donnarumma. He also seems to have the ability to command the back four which I like. Even though there's no interest in Butland or Shaw they're two players I'd love here at Chelsea. Courtois is a quality keeper but he talks to the press way to much for me.

07 Jan 2017 21:44:20
Have to say I'm largely disappointed with who we'll potentially get. I'll support them if they join but I don't think the ones that are most likely to happen are good enough imo.
