edd any idea is the move for fekir if we do move at all does that have any nearing on wether bakayoko goes to milan or not. as in if bakayoko moves to milan will that make us go all out for fekir?

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe there is any connection.}

Agree2 1Disagree

09 Aug 2018 08:27:45
Magicandshurley - I think Bakayoko is now going on loan to AC Milan with a view to buy as a consequence of us bringing in Kovacic on loan from Real.

That being said, I really hope we can do something for Feki before the end of the window.

08 Aug 2018 19:27:07
Chelsea are working on a deal to sign Nabil Fekir. Lyon have raised the price to try and keep Fekir but Chelsea are trying to meet the demands- Alfredo Pedulla (from Simon Phillips)

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Aug 2018 22:59:26
Would be surprised if it happened. Can't see us getting Martial or Fekir this window now. Nobody reliable has really confirmed concrete interest in Fekir, just been rumours and you know Liverpool will likely come back in for him if we tried getting a deal done. Although if these rumours going around about Batshuayi going on loan are true, we desperately need one of the two, we simply won't have enough goals in the team if he leaves.

09 Aug 2018 00:58:21
maybe batshuayi on loan to lyon as part of the deal?

09 Aug 2018 02:16:36
Don't think they want Bats as they like Mariano Diaz playing upfront for them. Apparently they're interested in Zouma though as i'm sure they've been looking for a CB. Wouldn't mind using him in a deal if it helps getting Fekir, would prefer it to be a loan but it doesn't seem as if he's in Sarri's plans unfortunately. Just want this deal to happen soo badly, i remember last season when beIN sports reported we had a bid accepted for Mahrez on deadline day and everyone went nuts. I expect a lot of guessing and false reports tomorow, same could easily happen with Fekir.

08 Aug 2018 12:41:56
Kovacic to have Chelsea medical today.

Midfield 3 of Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic. that's got a bit of everything. Can't think of many better midfields than that.

Now if we can just get our strikers to hit the net.

Agree5 2Disagree

08 Aug 2018 13:13:08
annoyingly i don't know any strikers out there AVAILABLE that has what we need? . always thought Belotti would have suited us but I still think Batsuayhi could be perfect for this type of football we are aiming for.

08 Aug 2018 13:20:18
Kovacic will have an option to buy!

08 Aug 2018 13:32:15
I do wonder if Fekir will come and play up front. He can play there and could flourish like Mertens. That’s just a thought though.

I’m excited, I think it’s going to take Sarri a month or 2 for his ideas to work but the team looks to be slowly coming together. Kepa, Azpi, Rudi, Andreas, Emerson, Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Hazard, Willian, Michy.

Bench: Willy, Alonso, Luiz, Cesc, Barkley, Pedro, Morata.
Squad: Green, Zappacosta, Cahill, Moses, RLC, Ampadu, Odoi, Giroud.

08 Aug 2018 13:31:46
Batshuayi is off on loan isn’t he? As is Tammy. Does that mean we are bringing a striker in? Can any Ed’s help?

08 Aug 2018 13:57:11
Is he, damn. I’d of started him as well. I think RLC might push for a loan as well.

08 Aug 2018 15:20:02
Yea CFCShak, there has to be an option to buy in Kovacic's loan deal.

08 Aug 2018 16:09:37
Lacks goals but is huge huge improvement,

08 Aug 2018 16:32:34
Depends on who you believe about the buy option.

I think it would be pretty dumb not to have a buy option but we have on occasions done some stupid deals.

08 Aug 2018 17:00:01
mattt don't want to argue just your opinion but who would you suggest that scores loads of goals from midfield and is available for chelsea to buy right now in other words who would you buy.

08 Aug 2018 17:17:01
Batshuayi n Abraham haven’t been loaned as of yet.

08 Aug 2018 18:12:16
Yeah that’s the big question loko, Savic got a lot of goals from midfield or lazio, fekir more winger type gets goals, but I’m not a scout so can’t think of many that’d be available, but looking at city they had goals from KDB silva sane sterling. same for Liverpool with mane salah coutinho When he was there and Mahrez at Leicester gets goals, just other outlets than just striker,

08 Aug 2018 18:41:37
It’s okay having three quality midfielders who can’t score only if you have three quality attackers who can score. Only Hazard contributes. Michy could be going on loan, Morata is in a goal drought and Willian or Pedro never consistently score over ten goals a season.

08 Aug 2018 19:04:25
I think kante will score more and kovacic as both will go past our attackers something that didn't happen under conte
I think morata will score more in this system if favours his play more late runs into box rather than trying to hold it up for other players not his strength imo
Just my thoughts on it be funny if we beat Huddersfield 6 0 all different scores haha if only.

08 Aug 2018 19:19:39
You are correct KingFrank. We now have a midfield that could be extremely efficient but they are not goal scoring midfielders so once again the onus will be on Hazard. If we are trying to get Fekir it will be as a forward and his goal scoring record is good but it will mean whoever plays out of him, Morata, willian and Giroud must look to get at least 10 or more goals apiece or we will struggle again.

08 Aug 2018 20:10:44
I bet some of you lot are fun at parties! Same people trying to find a negative in every post. If we signed Messi you’d moan about his height.

08 Aug 2018 20:36:46
He is small though.

08 Aug 2018 21:16:01
Eden Hazard has: Scored: 9, 14, 14, 4, 16 and 12 Assisted: 11, 7, 9, 3, 5 and 4 He's about to play his first season under one of the most attacking coaches in Europe, being supplied by Kovačić, Jorginho, Kante and Fàbregas.

09 Aug 2018 08:31:36
An inform (top of his game) Barkley scores goals.

09 Aug 2018 10:04:17
Just my read on the current spending at Chelsea, does the fact that we have canned the plan to build the stadium mean that we have more funds at our disposal . for us to use for contract negotiations or use to get the right players in?

Fellow posters, please share what u make of our transfer business this window, especially.

CHART OF COURTOIS' DECISION MAKING:
* December 17 ✔️ Courtois close to an agreement over a new 5y deal with Chelsea, ✔️ Kepa close to Real Madrid ;
* January 18 ✔️ Kepa’s Real deal collapses after a 'no' from Zidane ✔️ Courtois ends contract talks ;
* August 18 ✔️ Courtois close to Real ✔️ goes AWOL that prompts Kepa to Chelsea? - from journalist- KRISTOF TERREUR.
Looking at this chart's series of events, do you completely believe that Courtois' decision to join Real Madrid has completely been about his family? Please look through the chart very before you answer.

Agree0 4Disagree

07 Aug 2018 22:31:21
I think your looking in to it a bit to much. of course he would want to go to Madrid regardless. His family being in Madrid would be a massive reason why he would want to go there. Why would he not want to play for the European champions and see his kids on a regular basis?

08 Aug 2018 08:06:49
Offcourse you are right he's gone- he's gone. What intrigued me about this tweet from Kristof Terreur is '* January 18', if Kepa had gone to Real Madrid, wouldn't Courtois be a Chelsea player today?

08 Aug 2018 08:33:55
Obinna123 - if Kepa had gone to Madrid then we would be looking at an alternative, we had a short list of about 4/ 5 potential replacements. A couple of days ago we were all discussing replacements and I didn't see a mention of Kepa then.

Courtois was never going to stay at Chelsea.

08 Aug 2018 08:35:38
Both keen on a move to Real Madrid, but their club wanted to keep both of them.

One accepts the decision and proceeds to be happy captaining his club.

Whilst the other sulks and goes AWOL to force a move.

Human levels of decency.

Hazard 💙👏🏼.

08 Aug 2018 11:05:42
fine him. it's disrespectful. chelsea pay his wages.
if I did that at work I'd get the sack! shouldn't be allowed in football. players have far to much power.

08 Aug 2018 16:51:56
I agree his attitude has been poor at times . However his children live over there, imagine seeing them during the summer break then having to say goodbye again, knowing that there is an opportunity to live close by. However bad it seems to us you have to do what U know is best for your children.

08 Aug 2018 17:18:23
Surely with the wages he is getting he could easily move this family o.

07 Aug 2018 20:47:49
is the fekir rumours rubbish or is it a deal we can pull off edd i no u stated he wanted lfc move but im sure if we came calling hed be up for it. hed definetly add quality we don't have in the cm position.

{Ed001's Note - I honestly don't know.}

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Aug 2018 17:00:48
Ed1 hope you are alright mate. Any news on Kepa? A lot of sources reporting that Chelsea will pay release clause and the player wants to sign. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - he is the chosen replacement for Courtois I believe.}

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Aug 2018 17:38:09
I think his fantastic.

07 Aug 2018 17:37:30
What's your thoughts on him?

{Ed001's Note - seems the best possible option left, other than maybe Oblak.}

07 Aug 2018 18:10:46
I thought they wanted Butland, didn't expect Chelsea to pay so much for gk.

07 Aug 2018 18:16:42
Surprised we left it this late though. Did we think we could convince Courtois to stay? . Considering we also could've gotten Alisson cheaper than Kepa as well. Unless he was only interested in Liverpool. Happy with Kepa though, couldn't care about the price. With Courtois going for £35-40m it isn't that bad imo.

07 Aug 2018 18:43:04
i haven't seen much of kepa been honest but id take any1 otger than flappy butland.

07 Aug 2018 18:51:31
One for the present and future. He will be excellent. Kovacic is another ideal signing, hopefully we get the option to buy at the end of the loan. All off a sudden things are looking good.

07 Aug 2018 19:10:57
I’m not complaining if we sign kepa as I don’t know anything about him but why did we not just sign alisson for less. From what I have read alisson is more experienced and suits sarri way of being able to distribute the ball well. I can only guess tito Courtois never communicated with Chelsea until after Liverpool had already signed him and maybe he club were confident he would stay. It just seems strange yet again that the club has been backed into a corner and is forced to throw money at players this late in the window. As a fan it’s exciting but these big deals should of been done weeks ago.

07 Aug 2018 21:49:11
This may seem crazy to you NWBLUE but perhaps Alisson wanted to join Liverpool, I know Real were his first option but not every player would automatically join Chelsea over Liverpool.

07 Aug 2018 22:18:21
Maybe but 9 times out of 10 money talks.

07 Aug 2018 13:12:51
Chelsea are getting Kovacic on loan with an option to buy, should be announced within the next couple of hours - Multiple sources.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Aug 2018 16:52:09
how about tell them straight swap **** der poxy 35 million straight swap for mateo or nothing.

07 Aug 2018 17:13:57
Now saying without an option to buy.

07 Aug 2018 18:20:30
If there's no option to buy then it's not a good deal, Chelsea should pull out cos all we would be doing is making another club's player better at the detriment of ours.

07 Aug 2018 18:36:40
Well we do a lot of that Obinna.

07 Aug 2018 18:44:11
i be honest here he never stood out to me but i haven't watched him much either. i would say if we get first dibs on a permanent transfer we should agree a fee now rather than him playing a blinder this year an his value sky rocketing.

07 Aug 2018 19:13:09
If this deal will linger or fail to materialize, it will be cos of Real Madrid's refusal to introduce an option to buy. I see no sense in it for us if there's no option to buy. What it means Real Madrid wins all over: They get Courtois for a very low price and then give us their player to train too (a player that has relatively lost form) .

07 Aug 2018 16:27:29
Eds, do you know whether this will effect Loftus-Cheek? Also, is the option the buy genuine? I don't see the point in loaning a player without it - not when we could invest in another player for the long term.

09 Aug 2018 10:00:39
Obinna. I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about, Kovacic is one of the most promising midfielders in world football, why would we not snap him up?

07 Aug 2018 11:50:21
Kovacic reportedly joining on a season long loan, I'd take that.

Agree4 0Disagree

07 Aug 2018 12:03:24
Bobby23 - literally just read this! with an option to buy. Great little deal if we can get that done.

07 Aug 2018 12:18:58
Haighton87, totally agree. Kovacic would bring something completely different to our midfield. Let's hope there's some truth behind this deal.

07 Aug 2018 12:27:05
Buzzing about this. What a piece of business that would be. Such a quality player, he’s literally got the full skill set. Midfield 3 of Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic? WOW! Let’s hope the 3 backups are Cesc, Ross and RLC.

Now we just need to pack Courtois’ bag and replace him.

07 Aug 2018 12:27:31
Loan with 'obligation' to buy. Which means he's potentially our player once the deal is agreed. The deal makes sense. Hope we Oblak or Kepa too.

07 Aug 2018 13:02:26
Check the European page for a bit of info.

07 Aug 2018 13:53:36
Dantheman. what info?

07 Aug 2018 14:19:27
Ed has given some info on this.

07 Aug 2018 15:16:28
Where do i go to check the European page. HELP🤔.

{Ed001's Note - European Soccer Page

07 Aug 2018 15:36:51
The thread has been deleted unfortunately.

07 Aug 2018 15:47:01
Basically said that RM we’re in discussions yesterday re Kovacic and they still had business to complete in the next few days in England. From what I remember.

07 Aug 2018 16:53:18
option to buy could mean nothing if he has a great season madrid will just say he's worth 100 million an where screwed.

07 Aug 2018 17:19:13
I’d assume the option to buy fee would be agreed before he comes on loan.

07 Aug 2018 17:32:30
Reports saying no option or obligation to buy.

07 Aug 2018 11:39:16
Now MARCA is saying that kovacic will join Chelsea on loan in the next few hours. Alfredo Pedulla said earlier that Chelsea's the only remaining club interested in Kovacic.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Aug 2018 10:39:01
Kepa / Oblak
Bailey
kovocic
Fekir
Zaha
These are strong rumours for last few days. Csnt see too much truth in some but I can guarantee that we won't be able to get more than 2 If we're lucky in next few days unless we're really close to someone now, plus getting dead wood out and spending near on £200m. never going to happen.

Agree2 0Disagree

07 Aug 2018 11:38:59
I'll be happy if we get Kepa, Kovacic and Zaha.

07 Aug 2018 11:48:00
Me too TruBlu.

07 Aug 2018 11:55:03
Ed001,
Kovacic on loan with option to buy
is that soon to be finalised?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know. I know Real Madrid are trying to sell him. I know he was offered around, but only team I knew of with an interest was Inter.}
