Had a thought that might be stupid, but nevertheless it makes sense to me. I think we should buy Pepe and loan him back to Lille for the next season if we can't register him the next two transfer windows. He's claimed previosly that he'd like to play here, and that he'd like to play in the Champions League. Well, Lille are qualified this season, so perhaps he might be content with staying another season and then join a club he seems to like? Surely Chelsea should at the very least explore the option :)

I don't think we can do this. To loan a player out you presumably have to register them yourselves first.

{Ed002's Note - You are correct.}

25 Jun 2019 10:12:33
Let's get Hudson Odoi to sign a new deal first, more will happen.

25 Jun 2019 10:42:27
All hypothetical Ed but what about any deal similar to that of Keira joining Liverpool a year after it being announced or was that again a matter of him being loaned back for a season? Cheers!

{Ed002's Note - He was not registered nor loaned back.}

25 Jun 2019 14:04:29
Oh, I stand corrected then. Hypothetically, would it then be possible to sign a player, only where the transfer is decided to go through July 1st 2020? If it's not possible, you can just feel free to delete this comment :)

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea cannot "sign" any players if a ban is in place so they cannot be registered. They could do what Barcelona did and pay for Aleix Vidal and Arda Turan and not register them (leaving them to train but not play until the ban was over. Why is this so difficult to understand?}

25 Jun 2019 14:13:24
Bandy204, I thought Athletico Madrid did such deal when they got Vitolo?

{Ed002's Note - No. The Vitola transfer was pre-agreed.}

25 Jun 2019 15:27:26
Ed why wouldn’t Chelsea not try and sign players with ban frozen, they’ve either lose appeal and have two window ban or win appeal and no punishment, surely nothing to lose in at least giving frank and staff all the help they can, considering we have lost hazard and in need of a striker, unless ban being frozen isn’t possible,

{Ed002's Note - Because it is a particularly stupid thing to do. Or maybe it will turn out as well as Aleix Vidal and Turan at Barcelona - how many players are going to be willing to have their careers disrupted by a year of not playing?}

25 Jun 2019 16:04:31
No I don’t mean sign players who can’t play, I mean from what I read and posted perviously, article by Jake Cohen that fifa rejecting Chelsea having ban frozen until appeal heard and determined would be a big big surprise. Why don’t chelsea ask for ban to be frozen, have a window to be able to register players and wait for results of appeal. The punishment is a two window ban either way, why not give us one window to prepare? Unless I’m mistaken on ban being frozen being possible.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure I understand the first sentence. I don't want to go into the rest of it Matt.}

25 Jun 2019 16:25:12
Ok no worries, was meaning why not push for ban to be frozen until appeal heard,

{Ed002's Note - I understand Matt, thanks. As I said, I don't want to get in to that.}

I'm pretty sur ethat all of the articles you are reading are speculation. Therefore, who's to say Chelsea won't apply for the ban to be frozen. the window opens soon and I'd not be surprised if Chelsea didn't make the application once everything else is in place (manager / DOF. )

Ed is not about to reassure your worries (with good reason) so just wait until next week before jumping to conclusions.

25 Jun 2019 20:17:36
Well, the reason that I thought we could do it, was because I thought that was what Atletico did. It makes sense now, thank you! :)

26 Jun 2019 13:26:53

I hope so, just not good at moment seeing jovic, rodrygo ndombele de Ligt all linked or close to moves and we standing still. BUT like mention we have Petr role and Lampard to sort and get in place before anything else.
