I've seen this too, surely can't be true. 29 years old and still hardly a solid centre back, great character but for the quoted fee of £32m I just can't believe it.

Oh why. Great player yes, great defender NO. Hopefully he's matured at psg but they aren't a club who has to sell which makes it seems as tho he's possibly surplus to requirements.

Bolasie costs 28m so 32 for player in this market isn't as bad as made out, pogba cost £100m so 3rd of that not horrendous,

He's not the best defender but he's a world class midfielder.

Agree0 Disagree1

We struggled against him. Maybe perfect in a 3 at the back? I'd love to see Luiz terry zouma.

30 Aug 2016 22:22:54
Wouldn't be a bad back 3 Luiz, Terry, Zouma.

PSG won't have time to sign a replacement, unless they already have a player. Can't see it happening.

I agree back 3 of
Iva Terry Luiz

All of this post is gleaned from Editor info on other pages, various transfer sources and historical data.
Basically, the summary is keep the faith. I have all confidence in the club that we will see at least two signings, possibly 3, maybe even four with one being a truly established star.
We'll start off by discussing James Rodriguez. Clearly, Real Madrid (or rather Perez) does not see a long term future for him, and as Ed002 confirmed, they have made a significant offer for Bernardo Silva of Monaco, presumably as a replacement. This should in theory be a relatively simple domino effect- Silva to Real=James to us, however, another variable comes into play. Isco also fears for his spot in the squad and has attracted interest from Milan, Juventus and Spurs, with other clubs undoubtedly keeping a watching brief. What I think may help us in this scenario is that Zidane previously seems more keen to keep Isco (who is also a fan favourite) and use him in rotation with Asensio and also Silva if they sign him. This is still the most unlikely of all our transfers, however.
Next, we come to Marcos Alonso, which is relatively short and sweet. Deal is nearly done, around £25m and will sign tomorrow. A solid LB with potential to improve and appparently someone who Conte rates very highly, was very good for the Viola last season.
Brozovic is a more interesting one. With Inter needing to sell to balance out the signings of Joao Mario and Gabriel Barbosa, Chelsea see a good chance to sign Brozovic for a reduced fee compared to what was previously quoted, with a fee around £21-25m being muted. The problem with this deal may be that Brozovic is very keen to see a large pay rise as part of the prospective Chelsea contract and as such is playing the game in negotiations. While I still think a deal will be done, I think we still might need to wait till the deadline for this one. And also, it raises questions certainly about Mikel, who is today being linked with Galatasaray after Tiote failed his medical.
Finally, the CB. Arguably the most frustrating element of our transfer endeavours this summer, it is now clear we are in a race against time. I use this point to remind people to ignore all Zouma rumours. Absolute nonsense and he couldn't even pass a medical right now. Not sure why a club short on centre backs would loan anyone who is clearly in first team plans either. De Vrij, Romagnoli, Koulibaly, Garay, Marquinhos, Bonucci, Maksimovic and Lindelof were among names which have been tossed around this summer, and I think we will still sign at least one of them. Right now, it is looking like De Vrij, but Lindelof has been prominently linked again today, and Koulibaly's situation may yet change- let's not forget the David Luiz deal was dead coming up to 4pm on Jan 31st 2011 and by 11pm he was in our shirt. If Napoli can get Maksimovic through the door, then wait and see, as Koulibaly has again made it clear he wants Chelsea, and is stalling on the contract again because of this.
Will it go down to the wire? I think so. We have to face facts this year- we have no CL football and that has reduced our revenue, plus we need to be aware of FFP. Despite what many people are saying on here, I think we have had a relatively good window by signing a world class DM and a top young CF, plus a decent Keeper cover, and most importantly Conte appears keen to give Aina, RLC, Chalobah, Solanke a chance if he can. We'd all love Griezmann, Morata etc., but we'd all be the first to moan if they did a Torres, or it blocked our youth players progressing. Still a long long way to go, and I am sure before tomorrow's deadline a lot will have changed.
Keep the faith.

Thanks for the post CFC, well laid out discussion and I think at least 1 of those will sign, probably Alonso, who can also cover at CB, particuarly in a back 3.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Aug 2016 15:30:28
Awesome work, from an old poster. I still have a lot of faith.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Aug 2016 16:10:43
Nice summary CFCForever. We are much better in terms of numbers and qualities than last season, and it could get much more better as we expect one or 2 more signings. Moral is high and our best players are playing well too. Let us keep the faith, hoping all our players return fit from international matches.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 18:43:54
Good stuff and 100% balanced mate. For me, Koulibaly is dead and can't help thinking that if Alonso signs then Ivan can cover as a CB with Azpi RB and Zouma up an running in a couple months are we desperate for a CB?

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 14:10:20
Remy out on loan surely Chelsea confident of landing a forward ed. ?

Believable1 Unbelievable1

30 Aug 2016 14:23:03
I doubt we will sign a forward, you will probably see solanke or Loftus-cheek be our third striker.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 15:11:51
Don't understand what Chelsea are getting by loaning remy out. It's not like he's going to get any better like the younger players.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 15:13:56
Remember the start of window linked to all these players and huge bids, been disappointed to be honest although Kante and batyshuai have impressed me, can't see solanke or loftus getting goals when ( IF ) called upon.

Agree0 Disagree2

30 Aug 2016 20:06:06
I'm sure utd fans never expected rashford to perform like he did but u just don't know until players are given the chance.

I'd be happy is solanke got a chance up front.

Agree0 Disagree0

Inter have accepted a £25mil bid from
Chelsea for Brozovic. Great news, though I assume someone will heading out the door, Perhaps Mikel?

Believable2 Unbelievable3

29 Aug 2016 21:47:46
I hope so.

Agree2 Disagree3

29 Aug 2016 14:49:20
Alonso, Brozovic, De Vrij. Mikel to leave. James is in the balance, might be a late one.

Believable3 Unbelievable2

29 Aug 2016 15:32:25
I'd be satisfied with that.

Agree2 Disagree1

29 Aug 2016 15:59:48
Please, no De Vrij. Read something recently that after his knee injuries he still has to get his knee drained after every game as it's still bothering him. It'd be a ridiculous buy.

Agree3 Disagree5

29 Aug 2016 16:47:12
I'm sure the medical team knows better if the club decides to go for him.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Aug 2016 17:46:23
I watched him play this weekend against Juventus and he was fantastic. The only problem is that Lazio seems to be playing 352 formation, whilst Chelsea are now playing 4141 or 424 formation.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Aug 2016 21:48:47
Get the defenders fit and signed zouma koulibally I think we'll be playing 3 at the back.

Fergie bought van nistelrooj with a dodgy knee.

any of the eds able to help with the james Rodriquez rumour. Is it true we tried to get him on loan? are we actually talking with his agent or real Madrid about him at all? any info at all would be great. personally I think we could use the money involved better but I won't complain if it happens.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any interest from Chelsea. I haven't really kept up on it, but, from what I can gather, there has been little interest in him due to his asking price and wages.}

thanks a lot ed, well appreciated. with remy leaving do you know if the striker plan for next season is as follows.

costa > bats > RLC > solanke

cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I expected one to be signed.}

29 Aug 2016 15:32:39
expected. so no longer the case? sure has been an odd window. I can't wait for it to be done.

Christian atsu going to Newcastle on loan.

I think it is time for Chelsea to sell Atsu permanently after unsuccessful loan spells with exception of his days in Holland.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Aug 2016 21:52:16
Thing is he is quick and can score.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 20:59:24
Marcos Alonso set to join tomorrow.

Believable3 Unbelievable2

28 Aug 2016 22:23:12
If we manage to sign the player I believe he'll turn up as an excellent singing.
When it comes to Italian league best players are usually defenders.
When it comes to German league midfielders and strikers.
But the best signings usually come Frome French and Spanish league in general.

Agree4 Disagree6

28 Aug 2016 22:30:06
To warm bench. This has been going on for so long now. He is not better than Luis or baba. It is more of a panic buy. Never heard chelsea ever scouted him. He is sort of plan C for the club.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 23:01:48
Good to see we are giving him a chance to impress before judging him.

Agree3 Disagree1

29 Aug 2016 01:16:33
Please don't let him be our CB signing.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Aug 2016 08:18:25
Ollie Marcus Alonso is a left back he was playing as left midfielder as well.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Aug 2016 08:38:15
I don't see many left backs better the Filipe luis,

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Aug 2016 08:48:33
He can also play on the left side of a 3-man defence, he did for Fiorentina last night.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Aug 2016 12:17:26
Yer the bloke has played centre back multiple times for his club over the last year.

28 Aug 2016 19:56:33
I think I just seen my personal stupidest transfer rumour yet, and that's zouma is going to shalke on loan, and ghladbach want to buy christienson for 21 mil, do the people who come up with this stuff think everybody Is stupid or what.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

28 Aug 2016 22:11:23
Ok I have been in this site now for about three years and I have slot of repeat for the adds and everyone who supports Chelsea! I know we can't read into everything we see but as stated above if we decide to Loan or sell Zouma unless we are getting unbelievable money Chelsea must get their brains checked! Last I checked Zouma is probably on of the best raw talent defenders there is and with what we have in stock we would be foolish to allow him to leave at any cost! I am hoping this is all a rumour and rubbish because it's a joke to think we would get rid of one of our best!

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 22:37:03
Maybe they think zouma needs time to get his confidence back. he is coming back from a massive injury, so he will be a little bit rusty to start in a highly rugbyesque league like premier league. A loan to little bit "easier" league can help him on hugely. Remember he is only 21 and still not in his prime. He is tallbut not the strongest in premier league. He is quick but his positional awareness is questionable at this point. He is not a game reader like Carvalho, Terr. I personally like him very much but since board and manager are more qualified than me, if they take decisions, they take it for betterment of the individual and the whole club.

Agree0 Disagree3

29 Aug 2016 22:23:46
I can't remember him
Missing a tackle, and even when he doesn't read the game, I've seen his pace and strength get back and win that ball with an outstanding tackle. Something I don't see Cahill do all that often.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 13:44:55
I use to really rate Di Marzio but after today's rumour that Zouma may be heady to Schalke on loan I've lost all respect for him.

Believable0 Unbelievable8

28 Aug 2016 14:26:01
That can mean De virj and maksimovic are coming in.

Agree0 Disagree6

28 Aug 2016 15:48:01
Loan of injured CB. Lazy as reporting. Absolute nonsense, he'd fail a medical.

Agree4 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 15:49:57
If Zouma gets sent out that is one of the worst decisions from the board.

Agree6 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 16:33:09
This has got to be a joke. Zouma is a massive part of Chelsea this season (when he regains fitness) and for the future.

Agree4 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 18:18:41
Looks like a left back is in coming, Marcos alonso. Actually quite rate him. Him and Dave left and right. Zouma story has to be false. When fit surely he's ahead of Cahill next to jt.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 19:04:38
Wow people unliking my post when I've basically retweeted what Di Marzio said. There's some children on here.

Agree2 Disagree4

28 Aug 2016 20:12:58
I didn't do it for the record Eden but I think it may of been meant that the rumour and di marzio were unbelievable not you.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 20:26:03
If u notice garden, who ever posts a topic, which u posted about zouma. It asks if you find the rumour believable or unbelievable. So to me it seems everyone doesn't believe chelsea will get rid of zouma, not against what u have posted.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 22:16:31
Maksimovic might join citeh.

Agree0 Disagree2

29 Aug 2016 10:15:23
You going on about the disagrees again?
