Sarri will be a brilliant appointment, been wanting him for a long time. I know a lot of people here didn't want him but he will bring some seriously good football to the bridge.

15 Jun 2018 15:32:34
Love the idea of Zola being number 2.

15 Jun 2018 22:15:28
good football we'll take that.

15 Jun 2018 22:19:43
how long cfcshak i don't think he was on anyones radar until about three weeks ago lol
but let's get behind him if its him
to be honest cfc are on back burner until world cup is over i love the world cup. brings back great memories as a child and adult pretending to be zico when i was 10 rossi maradonnas big hand the heartbreak and devastation of italia 90 the golden years of frustration with becks lamps stevie g
i will be back on track soon lads just give me a month guilty pleasure.

15 Jun 2018 22:34:18
Keen followers of beautiful would have noticed Sarri for more than a year mate. He was discussed in these forums even back in December 2017 mate. Lol where were you or are you new to the site?

16 Jun 2018 15:34:44
CFC shak, I'm not a keen follower of beautiful probably why he wasn't on my radar.

15 Jun 2018 10:12:24
Gianfranco Zola will join Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea as his assistant, claims Gazzetta dello Sport, who also say that Sarri is 'very close' (again) to joining Chelsea.

• ADL will allow Maurizio Sarri to join Chelsea for a minimal fee if they promise not to poach players from Napoli without their consent (SportItalia)

• Chelsea were always waiting for replacement before releasing Conte.

Further updates.

• Napoli close to signing midfielder Fabian Ruiz.

• They're not believed to want Jean Seri as well (SportItalia), leaving the door open for premier league (Chelsea/ Arsenal) interest.

What melodrama being scripted by the club!

Aurelio De Laurentiis will allow Maurizio Sarri to join #Chelsea for a minimal fee if they promise not to poach players from Napoli without their consent. [Sportitalia].

15 Jun 2018 22:13:39
Chelsea shouldn't agree to that term. Take Piotr Zielinski and Sarri.

15 Jun 2018 22:16:33
by the word poach? does that mean not sign any napoli player or try to sign them or does it mean we can't bid unless they accept our approach etc.

15 Jun 2018 01:00:55
Maurizio Sarri will be soon free for Chelsea, let's see how. A diplomatic work is underway that will near Napoli to Abramovich's club and will free the manager. It takes another few days, but the road is this. How will it work? Napoli and Chelsea will sign a private agreement (with a minimum economic consideration) for a non-belligerent agreement eventually extended to the transfers market. Napoli knows that it is potentially vulnerable because it has three pawns under clause (Hysaj, Albiol and Zielinski) that particularly appeal to Sarri. But Napoli would like to keep all three and we'll see if the gentlemen's agreement will allow then to do some transfers operations, but always with the involvement and the assent of both clubs. It is no coincidence that Chelsea has thrown on Rugani and Manolas with great decision. In short, the thaw action is under way, Chelsea has not contacted other coaches, will pay Conte until the coach under contract will have no requests that can entice him. But the priority remains Sarri, as is clear from weeks and weeks.

Ahh twitter. Bridge News .

They have just posted an update too .

15 Jun 2018 07:43:33
Twitter but from Alfredo Pedulla who is decent!

14 Jun 2018 09:29:29
Ramadani (Sarri's agent) is back in Milan, works for the new Chelsea. Ramadani is working for the new Chelsea: Albiol aside, a name to follow is Rugai not inferrable for Juve and that Sarri wanted in Naples. "

Matt Law also reporting that Napoli's are willing to let Sarri go for £3.5m.

we have made a £22m bid for aston villas jack grealish.

13 Jun 2018 18:05:32
Don’t get that when we have Barkley and mount.

14 Jun 2018 10:01:19
Jack is a good mate of mine, met him through a uni mate a few years ago when it was his breakthrough season when Villa got to the FA Cup final. He got a lot of stick that year for his lifestyle but people forget he's a young boy. He's progressed a lot in his time in the championship, seems to have matured a fair bit on the pitch and can tell you he has off it. I asked him to introduce me to JT last year but never got round to it : (.

14 Jun 2018 10:33:20
Having young players at your club shouldn't blind your eyes to the fact that there are some other young players elsewhere that's is better than yours.

14 Jun 2018 11:07:24
No of course not Obinna but Mount is a fantastic talent and Grealish is no better than him or Barkley for that matter imo we’ve so many good youngsters like Haighton87 said there’s no better time than in this transition period to blood them again imo everyone has there own views of course which are all respected 👍🏻.

14 Jun 2018 12:30:34
In response to Obinna123, "apparently" we opted against buying Deli Alli because we have RLC.

One has done fantastically well with the club who bought him and now a regular in the national side. The other is only now getting recognition because of a semi successful loan move and is now in the squad for the national side and let's be real here, he also could potentially seek a move away from a club he's been at since the age of 8. Nate Chalobah did the same.

Chelsea have more important issues to be worrying about a player like Grealish.

i think youth wise, unless there is a special talent out there are more than covered.

14 Jun 2018 21:25:58
In response to Haighton87; I am sure Chelsea will incorporate Loftus Cheek into the squad next season or after next season (just like Chelsea did with A. Christensen, Courtois) cos he's doing well to get into the team.

And since Chelsea opted against buying Dele Alli for Loftus Cheek, the club has won 2 Epl titles and one FA cup with Loftus well developed from his loan away from the club WHILE Tottenham has won nothing since then.
Guy, don't try to be more righteous than the Pope; Chelsea will make the best decision for the club and it's young players to ensure that they develop into the team and we keep winning trophies. The decision to loan Loftus Cheek was the right one and I trust the next decision that they will make regarding Loftus Cheek.

15 Jun 2018 08:11:09
obinna123, first off change your tone, this is a forum for fans to discuss opinions. i am not here to argue or tell people they are wrong.

You have also missed the point I was making in regards to Alli and RLC.

Chelsea have bags of talent in their youth but choose to loan them out. RLC was in the squad but barely featured in our team. Spurs bought Alli and he was instantly given a chance and run of games and now look at the level he is at.

There is also the task of keeping the player happy, if RLC has a good world cup yet Chelsea go ahead and buy another midfielder for £££££- what message does that give not just to him but the others coming up. its all good developing them but if the club won't take the plunge and integrate them, they will leave. Solanke was happy to let his contract run down to do so.

I am not comparing our trophy haul to spurs because its not even worth discussing, my subject is about the youth and bringing SOME not all, into the squad. that is all.

but what do i know.

15 Jun 2018 22:15:30
Sorry if my tone is harsh, it's not my intention. I get your point now.

13 Jun 2018 15:40:41
Maurizio Sarri is close to joining Chelsea according to Mediaset, who are the latest to make the claim. They state that Chelsea will pay €11 million to release Sarri from his contract and also sign Raul Albiol from Napoli as part of the deal.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Jun 2018 17:43:07
Why would we want Albiol, he's 32 years old. He's no better than what we have!

13 Jun 2018 18:53:25
I think it's too add numbers and experience if these rumours are true of course.

I don't know what our board are doing if I'm honest. Shambles for a big club like chelsea. No footballing experience in the board room.

13 Jun 2018 19:45:38
We added numbers in Mourinho's last year, Hector, Miazga, Djilobodji, Rahman to name a few and where did that get us or them? I agree, we are not handling this very well at all not least the manager as he will be key to who stays and who comes.

13 Jun 2018 20:39:34
It's worrying for the fans. We have to suffer on a daily basis.

14 Jun 2018 19:13:12
Worrying for the fans? Think you speak for yourself mate. Worried? About a football club? Never, the only time I worry is if I can't pay the mortgage or put food in my kids bellies.

Its football for heavens sake, get a grip.

13 Jun 2018 09:33:10
Can anyone explain to me this fascination with central defenders this club has? Rumour after rumour it's a defender! Don't need defenders apart from a right back we desperately need flair players with the talent to match hazard.
Just haven't got the words to explain this club.
We are now reaping the awards of sacking manager after manager! Had the best and we not backed them then sacked them after being successful. Talk to me help me understand what's going on and how we move forward.

Agree3 1Disagree

13 Jun 2018 10:49:56
From your comment, we need more flair players (which is relatively true cos I also want us to play a balanced attacking football) but more flair players would mean less defenders (which means we will have to resort back to playing four at the back: 2 central defenders, a RB and a LB) ; and if we are going to succeed- playing with only 2 central defenders, they both must both be strong and solid.

The question is, asides Rudiger, how many central defenders in the current Chelsea squad do think can hold their own very well in a 4-man defense like Terry and Carvalho did in those days that made us stand out. I think if the incoming coach will wanna play with four at the back, he will need one very good central defender to compliment Rudiger assuming D. Luiz is leaving, Cahill is obviously passed his best days; Azpilicueta is good playing in a 3-man central defenders at the back formation or RB; Christensen still needs to build his stamina.
I think Conte saw the deficiencies in our defenders before he switched to his 3-4-2-1 formation that became a success (remember when he first came, he played four at the back and it didn't work he kept as asking for Koulibaly cos with a Central defender like Koulibaly, you can play 4 at the back and have a resolute defense. When he didn't get a defender like Koulibaly, he resorted to his 3-4-2-1 as to achieve defensive stability. )

13 Jun 2018 10:56:26
Truth is no one has a clue what is going on which accounts for the ever more ridiculous rumours that you read.
The vast majority of rumours are 'clickbait' based on very little if any real evidence .
That said we have reason to be concerned given that the club is now without a single football person on the board and Roman clearly upset over the visa is issue.
Seems like a defining period for our club .

14 Jun 2018 10:43:20
There's also this theory that; if you want a team (no matter how strong the team is) to keep winning consistently and stay motivated, you should freshen up it's personnel (coach) every 2-3 years- to encourage motivation for new challenge; the longer a coach stays- the more familiar he gets with his players and familiarity as you know breeds contempt etc.

13 Jun 2018 00:42:14
Sky sports reporting that Chelsea and Juventus is in talks Stefan Savic of Athletico Madrid.

Agree1 1Disagree

13 Jun 2018 08:03:29
promote a youth player instead please.

13 Jun 2018 09:07:30
Definitely or Zouma is to come back don’t need him imo.

13 Jun 2018 09:09:46
Haighton87; will your reason for saying, 'promote a youth player' be that Savic isn't good enough? Though Chelsea should be looking out for better players, I think he has improved a good deal at Athletico Madrid since the last time he was at ManCity so let's not be in hurry to judge this one.

Maybe Chelsea's interest in Savic stems from the 'DEBRUYNESQUE MISTAKE': Comes to Premier league- doesn't do well- leaves the Premier league to another league, does well a bit- returns back to the Premier league and becomes the bomb. Besides that, if Juventus is interested in Savic- then he must be doing something right as a defender.

13 Jun 2018 11:33:14
we have had the best youth teams in the country for a number of years now and i think now is as good a time as any to start bringing some of them through.

we bought Emerson as "competition" for Alonso and yes he had a few good performances, i would have rather them promote a youth player to give that competition - young and hungry to prove their worth.

*cough Jay Dasilva *cough.

Also, I don't judge players on their interest from other clubs and certainly not Juve.

13 Jun 2018 12:18:32
following on from that, players like sterling, RLC, Abraham, Hudson Odoi, Mount, Chalobah, get them in an around the squad - with the experienced players. Then add in some young "flair" asensio

if we don't give them a chance, someone else does - we are back here again complaining we never gave them a go.

13 Jun 2018 12:27:33
Great post Haighton87.

13 Jun 2018 16:50:11
The club wants these players to come through more than you; cos at least it will save them loads of money which can be put into other projects of the club; but bringing them through should be done properly and at the right time so that it doesn't become counterproductive to both the club and these young players that you listed in your post.

14 Jun 2018 08:20:50
obinna 123. Like I said, i think now is as good time as any, don't you?

14 Jun 2018 21:23:53
Not all of them are ready for Chelsea's first team though some are ready but for the fact that someone else plays their position at the club very well (at the moment) will make it difficult for to come through and develop well coupled with the fact at this stage of their careers they need to be playing regularly.

*Odoi should go on a 2 season loan to be ready come back and take a spot when Willian would be on the decline.

*Let's wait and see how well Loftus Cheek performs at the world cup before we conclude on him but he will be perfect for the Chelsea squad if he stays one more year at Palace- playing regularly. He is the only one carve a niche for himself out of the present Chelsea squad.

*Mount still needs a 2 season loan, come back and be accessed.

*Abraham- 2 season loan will be good and then check his development.

*Dujon Sterling can play as backup to our RB next season but that would mean letting one of our RWB leave.

*Jay DaSilva- 2 year out on loan mainly cos he have 3 players that can play LWB ahead him right now at Chelsea- M. Alonso, Kenedy and Palmieri.

11 Jun 2018 22:21:55
De Laurentiis will not let Sarri go for free despite the expiry of his €8m clause. The 2 parties have to find an agreement and in this scenario, Luiz could enter negotiations. The Brazilian not only knows Ancelotti but would be happy to arrive in Italy (La Repubblica) #CFC #Napoli.

This is all becoming a joke.

12 Jun 2018 22:43:31
Please tell me we’re not interested in savic.

13 Jun 2018 00:45:08
Yes we are interested in Stefan Savic of Athletico Madrid according to Sky Italy.
