Good evening Ed002; please is Chelsea interested in signing Kaio Jorge?

{Ed002's Note - Kaio Jorge (AM/F) is expected to have a very good future but Santos are asking a huge amount of money for the 18 year old (he has an $80M release clause) which has stalled discussions with Juventus who were looking at about a fifth of that price. Barcelona, Chelsea, Bayer Leverkusen, Shakhtar Donetsk, Monaco and Milan have approached or been approached about the player. Santos may accept something in the region of $30M - which is still a great deal of money for the player.}

Ed on european page when asked about van de Beek, you mentioned Chelsea were approached about the player, was there anymore to that, or would he be an option to havertz if that didn't go ahead or just nothing in it.

{Ed002's Note - No, there is zero interest.}

Hi eds, are we interested in Xavier Mbuyamba?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Try searching from a few months ago.}

Ed002 had told us in May that we were indeed interested in Mbuyamba, but added (am paraphrasing but you can obviously check exact words via the search facility as Ed 002 has suggested) that Barcelona had an option to extend his contract by 3 yrs and this might make for interesting negotiations.

Ed002, with the reports coming out that Kante is one player that could be sold this summer, what other clubs are looking to maybe buy him please? I personally think it’s the right time now as his injuries seem to be adding up. Also, is there any plan for RLC, any chance he may go out for a loan to build his fitness up or prove his fitness rather?

Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - Inter and PSG have enquired. Wages will be an issue for Inter who have a preferred option, but if an acceptable offer is made and the player wants to leave, Chelsea will not stand in his way.

Loftus-Cheek is not lacking or needing to prove his fitness.}

Imagine selling our only world class player.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Aug 2020 12:17:48
• Kante is only world class in a two man midfield and we don’t play that way now unless we stick to 3-4-3. Long term Frank wants 4-3-3 with two attacking 8’s either side of a CDM.

• Controversial but if we got 60 mil plus I’d sell him for Rice. Kante’s injuries are getting way to frequent and getting Rice in would give us an extra presence and height at set pieces too which were really struggling with. Rice and Havertz are both 6 feet + it would be great if we could dominate midfield again like when we had Ballack and Essien as powerful players in the centre. Along with Zouma and a new CB and GK that would make us strong on set pieces again (Our biggest weakness) .

Imagine having a player who can only play in 50% of the games. Age not on his side, hamstring injuries and his overall game is based on running constantly, chasing, harassing. Yes he’s world class, but what’s the point of having a world class player who spends half his time on the injury bench.

Great points Adam agree thoroughly 👍🏻 If you want to get to the top again you have to be ruthless if they’re injured most of the time just sell. Think Loftus-Cheek is on borrowed time you can only wait so long for these guys to recover or get to that next level I. e Christensen who ain’t good enough and needs to be sold.

i remember before he joined chelsea think ed002 said that he would of liked to join psg so possible to them as guessing they have money and he would be willing to join them.

WC68, I’m with you. I’d take that £60m too and stick it straight into a bid for Rice. His height, versatility, and leadership wins it over for me.

I also like the signing of Lewis Dunk. Another leader, adds height and isn’t afraid of attacking the ball. Reminds me of Cahill. Not a big name at all, but neither was Cahill at the time and look what he achieved!

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2020 14:24:41
I wouldn’t go for Dunk Adam as we’ll be back in the market not long after as I don’t think Dunk will suit Frank’s high line but it could work 🤷🏼‍♂️ Agree thoroughly on Rice though I’m a big fan 👍🏻 Wouldn’t mind Rice as our leader at CB to be honest then maybe target Zakaria as a new DM.

Kante struggled with injuries early on as Sarri played him all the time when he wasn’t fit, half for for a final. akimg injuries worse, and kante isn’t only world class in a two, his world class and would get into almost every team, the fact his world class in a two should be more reason to build around him, get him a partner who can cover ground and contribute rather than slow Jorginho and kovecic, non of whom Other anything With the ball and all play in that position,

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Aug 2020 14:44:49
I don’t think Dunk is that slow. As I said yesterday, he can ping a good long ball, particularly with his right foot but he is not hopeless with his left.

He is also a leader and we definitely need one or two of them.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 15:29:54
You have short memories guys. Kante played nearly every game for last 4 seasons. He gets injured in this one (rushed early for few games too) and suddenly you wouldn't mind selling him) .

Loads of Rubbish. He is one of our best players and should stay with us.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 22:57:45
We must keep some of our best and most experienced players and both Kante and Willian fit that description.

Ed002 on the City page:

'Kai Havertz (AM) another David Silva replacement - but heading elsewhere. '

As good as deal done for me.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

03 Aug 2020 16:13:02
To be fair, Ed did sort of say that a couple of times on here already. Since then, I’ve been sleeping a whole lot easier, goes without saying things can change but « it should be » done. Good times ahead lads, good times.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 18:56:45
Brilliant that it’s happening, but not surprised as Ed’s said it should happen, more surprised as I though foden was the David silva replacement.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 11:12:05
ED002, any update on Willian and if he does decide to leave . who are we looking at to replace him?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}

Sancho.

03 Aug 2020 13:28:23
Lol. Love the optimism.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Aug 2020 10:28:48
TBF if Willian does leave who are our options as CHO hasn't developed as hoped and it would leave us short on the wings. I much prefer Werner down the middle although appreciate he could do us a job there if needed.

Agree0 0Disagree

Could I perhaps ask for some info on the following players Ed and where they might end up after the summer;
Baba rahman
Bakayoko
Drinkwater
Kennedy
Batshuyai.

{Ed002's Note - Baba Rahman (LB) is available and happy to stay at Mallorca but Chelsea don't want another loan but have no other viable options. There was a discussion with Rennes but they have a preferred option.
Danny Drinkwater (CM) Chelsea want him moved on - available.
Kenedy (LM/LW/LB) Getafe were expected to take up their option and maybe sell him on - that has cjanged with the pandemic - avaiable.
Michy Batshuayi (S) Chelsea had no interest in letting him go in January and Chelsea will want a sale this summer. Crystal Palace may offer an option - Marseille would do but they have FFP problems and other issues to deal with first. Fenerbahce will look to a loan to buy or a very cheap buy. Leeds or Newcastle may provide a solution. His agent is working hard to define the options.}

03 Aug 2020 11:34:48
Hi Ed002, would the Crystal Palace option for Batshuayi include Zaha?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 11:46:18
I would like to think we might eventually get some cash for Michy and Bakayoko?

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 11:53:14
Much appreciated Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 17:43:52
TomB, think PSG and Bayern have had a look at Bakayoko, but where he is on their lists of preferred targets, no idea. But he does have potential suitors.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 18:41:00
Thanks for the information Fuser.

Hi Ed hoping for a little more info on a matter you’ve discussed early last month. I know you have no interest in the defence in general having received grief on here from the ungratefuls but I wanted to know if there has been any additions or updates to the list of goalkeepers Chelsea have declared/ shown an interest in that you provided. It seemed to sum up as; Cakir (Club willing to listen to offers for him), Onana (Again given Van der sars comments seems like Ajax would be willing to do business), Donnarumma (high wages putting Chelsea off), Strakosha ( Lazio not willing to sell), Maignan and meret have been watched along with Musso.

Can any of these be scratched from the list Ed or is there one or two new names the club has decided to look towards since the season has all but come to a close.

{Ed002's Note - The GKs are part of the defence and the list changed a while ago.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

03 Aug 2020 10:08:36
I know it’s all part of the defence, but your stance seemed to have softened last month regarding the GK position specifically and was super grateful for the last list. Fair doos if your not willing to provide more, it is your info and you can obviously decide what to do with it.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 10:52:19
Ed02 please update us on the defence. We are crying out for info!

{Ed002's Note - THis is simply tedious.}

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 11:02:58
Come on guys, I think Ed02 has made his stance on the defence quite clear.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 11:13:39
Seriously guys? Can't you just accept no for an answer? I get frustrated seeing questions being asked to the Ed's about the defence knowing full well that they won't provide any info, so god knows how's the Ed's feel. Can we just all act mature and accept someone else's decision?

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Aug 2020 12:09:42
Doesn’t look like we will be getting any info on defence this summer lads. Someone took a cheeky shot last month for an update on the GK position and Ed gave us that last list but looks like GK info is being quarantined along with the rest of the information on defence. I personally think we will only get a LB this summer and let Emerson go with Alonso staying and stick with Reece and Azpi at RB and Zouma Tomori Christensen and Rudi as our CB when the window closes. Also see Kepa staying and fighting for his place alongside a reasonably priced new GK (Pope, Onana or Cakir), Kepa is frustrating because he is probably one of the best distributors of the ball with both feet in the world from GK which seems to be a massive skill to have in modern football but he is terrible at the absolute basics of Goalkeeping including positioning, strong wrists and attacking Ariel balls. I think clubs are viewing the January window in a more positive light after the recent successes of Van Dijk and Bruno Fernandes and May rely on incorporating it into their season plans more than they would have in the past, I think CB might be saved For 2021 onwards if we can’t get what we want this summer, we didn’t sign anyone in January because we couldn’t get what we wanted and I don’t think that stance is going to change.

If you look on the European site or other teams sites you can sometimes find references the defenders that Chelsea might be interested in.

Also, they are always good for a laugh.

03 Aug 2020 12:58:52
Yeah my bad, sorry Ed02! Won’t ask again.
