Sarri, Rugani and Serri should be the first 3 through the door, not bad if that gets us off the mark.

Rugani is a future Italy national team starter. He would be an excellent addition, only 23 and will make competition for spaces very interesting competing with Rudiger, Christensen, Cahill and Luiz (if the latter isn't sold) for the CB position.

Serri will be quality, a great addition if it happens. Tbh we also have RLC who we can consider as a 40-50mil signing. These two alongside Kante will be a force. Not to forget great competition for spaces if we consider that we have Barkley, Bakayoko (who will come good), Fabregas and Drinkwater. The latter probably be sold leaving us with 6 CM's.

Main areas of concern for us are in attack. We definitely need replacements for Pedro and perhaps Willian if sold. Need a better no.9 to compete with Morata. Giroud remains a great addition from the bench.

Courtois (I think he will stay) .
Azpi Rudiger Rugani Emerson
Kante, Serri, RLC
Hazard, Willian, Morata.

We need someone that creative n capable of assissting somewhat 20 or above figure alongside kante-seri or kante-RLC.

Grealish?
Golovin?


2.) 22 Jun 2018 08:16:13
Hudsoi adoi must come in for willian in the second half of each game. He is our ousmane dembele if we give him chances. If not, someone will sell him cheap n then become same case of salah n de bruyne n lukaku.


3.) 22 Jun 2018 08:33:12
I have to agree mate, Hudson Odoi needs his breakthrough season.


4.) 22 Jun 2018 09:25:21
I think signing Grealish would be a big mistake, Mount will become a better player and I'd definitely look to keep him around the first team this season.

For now I'd actually like to see how a midfield three of Kante, Loftus-Cheek and Barkley would look; especially against teams who would sit back and we'd have to break down. Have Bakayoko there for when a more defensive/ physical setup is required.

A central midfield squad of Kante, Bakayoko, Loftus-Cheek, Barkley, Mount and maybe one other would be very good in my opinion.


5.) 22 Jun 2018 12:24:22
If we are going to sign him will people please realise it’s Seri and not Serri? Unbelievable.


6.) 22 Jun 2018 14:25:57
Alright mate. Didn't think you would be so passionate about him being called Seri or Serri? Im sure youve heard of a phone typo given that neither is in the dictionary.


7.) 23 Jun 2018 11:40:49
are people really on about chelsea fc signing jack grealish😂 we have enough average players in our squad thanks. plus rlc is probably 10 times the player.

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 .


2.) 15 Jun 2018 07:43:33
Twitter but from Alfredo Pedulla who is decent!


 

 

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.

CFCShak

1.) 13 Jun 2018 17:43:07
Why would we want Albiol, he's 32 years old. He's no better than what we have!


2.) 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.


3.) 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.


4.) 13 Jun 2018 20:39:34
It's worrying for the fans. We have to suffer on a daily basis.


5.) 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.

Chelsea, won't pay Napoli for Sarri's release!

Club is an absolute joke. absolutely embarrassing considering what every other club is doing. We are really showing Sarri how much we want him right now! He sort of didn't extend his contract with Napoli as he wanted to see if the grass was greener and in us it was.

But this is going on too long, we need to get to the summer business and this delay ain't helping I'm sure new recruits would like to know who our manager is before they commit to us. Over a 7m release clause we are really affecting our summer plans, very smart move.

Apparently Chelsea are willing to wait and see what Sarri's lawyers do to get him out of the Napoli contract. Sooner rather later Sarri will move on, may get another job offer and we would look like absolute fools as we have practically wasted so much time chasing him, agreeing terms etc.

Very concerned with how things are going at the club, something ain't right for sure. This ain't us stomping over 7m. It's a joke.

CFCShak

1.) 31 May 2018 22:47:37
Shak, Ed outlined on the Banter page how messy the subject of Sarri could become.
I don’t want the bloke as our manager but I don’t want his employment to turn into a legal circus, with lawyers being the only winners!


2.) 01 Jun 2018 00:00:37
So with Sarri out of frame the names are Blanc And Avram grant according to tomorrow’s papers, the board have sat on there hands knowing conte will be leaving or at least want him out and haven’t appeared to make any arrangements, again while others are looking at targets we are starting our managerial search, average squad will now get average manager, at this rate I want conte to stay. Clubs in absolute turmoil.


3.) 01 Jun 2018 08:02:22
MM: Now they have "Zidane lined up for Chelsea" added to the Blanc, Sarri, Conte staying and Avram Grant lined up as a stop gap charade. From Mourinho's last year we seem to have gone off the rails when we used to keep it simple. The list of players 'lined' up is getting longer and longer which means we would have an extensive 'leave' list coming plus it must be destabilising for the current players. On the other side Abramovich says he is totally committed followed elsewhere by he wants £1.2bn for the club. There is no doubt it is destabilising the supporters!


4.) 01 Jun 2018 09:52:47
Sorry TomB, it's just frustration mate.


5.) 01 Jun 2018 10:17:45
No need to be sorry and I do understand your frustration. That’s how fans are supposed to be.
We all want to be players first then we know better than the manager and ever owner has lost the plot.
Can’t wait for the new season!


6.) 01 Jun 2018 18:45:37
Trouble is if we pay Sarri's release clause 7 million then add contes 9million. 16 million for nothing. Its ok for everyone to moan. But if that was coming out of your bank account you wouldn't be happy. In fact if the papers reported CFC had just handed over 16 million to someone and got nothing in return you would all be going mad.
Dont get me wrong its not great i want a new manager in and players signed before world cup. But that doesn't look like its going to happen.


7.) 07 Jun 2018 09:03:18
I don't really know why CFC is so dull this season in terms of transfer issues. many teams are ahead of us what's the reall issue guys?


 

 

31 May 2018 11:48:08
An option of sarri terminating his own contract for £1.5m was available to @ChelseaFC that is why they offered a middle path of £4m to ADL which he refused. if they take the 1.5m route then I hope they know what they are doing. This could get messy.

CFCShak

1.) 31 May 2018 12:22:11
Zidane anyone?


2.) 31 May 2018 12:46:06
I am unsure on zidane. he is my favourite non Chelsea player ever and I know he has won 3 UCL's on the bounce but its hard to tell if he is a fantastic manager yet with the league form not being fantastic. any of the EDs have an opinion like this or opposite? would love to hear other views.

{Ed001's Note - like you said it is impossible to judge him but the league form does suggest he struggles to get the players performing consistently over the course of a season. From what I saw of him in charge of Castilla, he is pretty hopeless tactically though. All he did when he stepped in is stop the players from turning against him, like they did with Benitez, where they wouldn't listen to him. Then he took Rafa's system and tactics and made the fans accept them, which they wouldn't do when it was Rafa. Somehow when Zidane played Casemiro as a DM it was a masterstroke, when Benitez had been doing the exact same thing it was because he was too cautious!}


3.) 31 May 2018 12:49:23
No chance.

Plus he would want a break. Chelsea would have made their own enquiries about Zidane beforehand I assume.


4.) 31 May 2018 16:00:13
Yeah, seems it was a masterstroke from the Madrid board more than anything. first manager I remember not to sign a "galactico" which I think again highlights his role as more of a peacemaker in dressing room than long term top top manager. but hey, he could prove me wrong. france @ euro 2020 is his next one I think.

{Ed001's Note - is there anything else he can do that won't feel like a step down for him now? He would have to win the Euros and World Cup to come close really.}


5.) 01 Jun 2018 08:07:20
yeah I agree. I found it interesting that he mentioned la liga triumph meant more to him than a UCL treble! I think that highlights his own feeling of discontent across the whole season, he also mentioned the loss to leganes in the copa semi.

Update on Sarri guys

"Right now I have more friends in London (Chelsea) than in my city. Thank you. Positive summit for Sarri, but it needs patience. Later summary"

I'm thinking the same, how much more time and patience do we need. All this time wasting best be worth more than the 7m!

CFCShak

1.) 12 Jun 2018 21:41:01
Well if he signs now there is not a lot he can do over here as players are all away. Any transfers would have been discussed with him anyway.


2.) 12 Jun 2018 22:54:15
. The summit – with the presence of Ramadani – went well. Confirmation about the position that Abramovich’s club has been holding for days. Chelsea has reiterated that Maurizio Sarri is the best choiche as manager, the agreements are for a three-year contract period. And now the negotiation will be about bureaucratic chores, with the possible involvement of Napoli to find the agreement on the resolution. Agreement that, as explained, could also come with agreements that involve the market: from David Luiz to Hysaj and Albiol. This is the most practicable way, away from other situations. Chelsea has set aside plan B, while Conte always remains in the background with an onerous contract (more penal in case of exemption), but with confidence collapsed for a while. The Sarri-Chelsea affair will pass through the road of bureaucracy and dialogues. We must have patience, it is not a situation – except surprises – of two or three days. And we say it for Chelsea fans who are in a hurry. And that they still have to wait, knowing that Sarri remains the choice (made) by Abramovich. Waiting for the next and definitive steps.


3.) 13 Jun 2018 00:27:13
I'm starting to think that this whole Sarri and Blanc situation is pure stupid. Alfredo Pedulla seems to be repeating the same recycled news over and over again.

I can't help but think how we are wasting time. I just hope we have some agreements in place to sign players.

Seems like we will have a bad pre-:season and a poor start to the season based on they slow developments we are witnessing now.


 

 

08 Jun 2018 00:11:01
Sarri still is the first choice and Marina Granovskaia's blitz of these days in Russia is necessary to set up a strategy with Abramovich. The patron's right-hand man will be back in London within sunday or monday. Then they will go to the operative stage of the negotiation. Chelsea has never thought of renouncing to Sarri, the only problem was the clause (already expired) . Regardless of Mr Conte's choice, who in the last few hours as received an interest from Real Madrid. Blanc is a second choice, but Chelsea doesn't give up Sarri (who is also in Real Madrid's list) . The first days of next week are supposed to be the hottest and everything will be done to get to an agreement. Of course, after solving the problem of the coach, Chelsea will be the main protagonist of the transfers market.

Be ready to be slayed if you got it wrong.


2.) 08 Jun 2018 08:16:17
Backing received from Alfredo Pedulla who is a very reliable journalist when it comes to Italian sports news.

I'm not saying it will happen 100% but Chelsea would like it to happen!

If Blanc was the preferred choice then it would have been announced given that he is a free agent and personal terms have already been agreed already. However he is 100% plan B and if all fails with Sarri then he will be appointed.


3.) 08 Jun 2018 15:52:14
Why would CFCShak be slayed if what he said doesn't happen? If all is well with our board, that should be their exact line of action; I like his comment, I hope its true.
The only person that has a right to slay him later should say what he or she thinks will happen later- otherwise, the person should shut up- whether what he said comes to pass or not.


4.) 08 Jun 2018 16:47:29

i hope your right cfc shack be nice to see us secure manager an make some transfers happen. were a million miles off lfc an man city at the moment we really need to ship out a few an bring in a few. id really love to see rlc come in do an play.

Interesting times at the club, is Roman planning to sell the club?

The whole thing with the VISA, his new citizenship in Israel, and now the stadium rebuild abandoned - it's all just very matter of a fact and sudden. We are very cautious with our spending and spend within our means. Very hesitant in appointing a manger who has a 7mil release. Trying to negotiate with Conte to lower his termination fees. Back in the days Chelsea would not hesitate. Just a little surprised.

Hopefully it's nothing, hopefully we get some good news soon! I think we need that!

CFCShak

1.) 31 May 2018 14:38:36
When a company paints the building and balances the books in my experience a sale is being contemplated.

If RA sells the club, I think the fans will understand and he will go with our best wishes and thanks!


2.) 31 May 2018 14:48:33
Quite agree Tom, if he is looking for investment then it is for that person to pay for new stadium . Think he will try and sell the club, of course we will all understand.


 

 

29 May 2018 18:03:27
Sky Italia are reporting that Chelsea have no indication to pay Sarri's release clause of 7 mil and the manager Is expected to stay on the sidelines for the year.

The whole thing has been weird, we are wasting precious time in appointing a new manager and sacking the current manager. Delaying transfers too. This is the receipe for disaster, the club seems a bit lost. Since last year things have got really bad and very slow. I hope they know what they are doing, I have a feeling Laurent Blanc will lead us next year lol. Of course Hazard probably do a Costa and escape!

CFCShak

1.) 29 May 2018 18:29:55
Completely unprepared, its almost as if the end of season came out of nowhere and surprised us, no plan in place,


2.) 29 May 2018 18:46:24
Matt so you think a club generating 100s of millions of pounds just make it up everyday they start work
Of course they have a plan but things take time it's not figs
Employment law and other factors don't take minutes when millions of pounds are being bound about
Just chill I'm sure there is a plan
I think you'd be better off on twitter were things happen on a minute by minute schedule but it might not be 100% accurate.


3.) 29 May 2018 20:02:28
I can see where Matt is coming from, I'm hoping That the club has some sort of plan, whether it's good or bad but what is of concern is the time it's taken. You would have thought they had a plan for Conte's situation before the season ended and would have wanted it done asap so they could work together with the new manager and get some transfers in before the World Cup.

I am getting slightly worried about the Laurent Blanc rumours though. Painful, I wouldn't rather Enrique or even anything than him.


4.) 29 May 2018 20:48:51
Oh god here we go again. it’s the World Cup, it’s a shorter pre season. We have a long list of players who are not good enough and need moving on, we need a number of good additions, we have a manager who wants out and a board who want him out, we have a target we want in and he wants in too, our players will have to adapt to new manager and style. LFC have strengthened already when ahaead of us, United linked everyday to signings, city too. and us. were not active, why is it as if I’m being ridiculous pointing out how unprepared we are? It’s almost as if having concerns makes me less of a fan or better yet a troll!


5.) 29 May 2018 21:15:08
Maybe their lack of interest in paying his buy out is an excuse to drop him. They were 'reporting' that he wanted to bring five Napoli players with him including a 35 year old, that was binned and it was three players, meeting their buy clauses of £100m and wanting another £80m for further buys! Now had Conte asked for that last year we know what the answer would have been! I think we missed a trick with Ancelotti.


6.) 29 May 2018 22:59:33
Chelsea board is a joke, I don't care, I know we won 2 titles in 4 years. But the truth is we are going backwards more quicker than you could imagine. Liverpool, Man Utd and Man City will attract players over us, players would rather go to them rather than us, we can't even pay 7m to get a manger knowing that our current manager wants out. Because of this 7m we are now linked to Lauren Blanc. 7m? welcome to Chelsea penny pinching FC of the modern ere. At this rate I ain't buying the new kit or renewing my sky sports deal.


 

 

29 May 2018 13:16:02
Ed1 what's the hold with the Sarri deal mate? Is our board counting all the pennies in paying sarri's release clause and sacking Conte? Or is because they are considering all their option s before they appoint?

Are we trying to get a good deal in sacking Conte? Also why would the Napoli owner give us a discount given that we were one of the teams that swayed Sarri from signing an extension.

Thanks for your input mate.

CFCShak

{Ed001's Note - I don't know anything about any Sarri deal sorry. I know Conte is just about not wanting to pay up his full contract to get rid of a manager who wants to go anyway.}

Good opinions guys. I think given that Sarri will be the manager, another CB is probably not needed but ignore they choose to buy one then Manalos fits the bill. His a quality defender and within budget.

CB: Christensen, Rudiger, Zouma, Cahill, Luiz
RB: Azpi, Moses
LB: Alonso, Emerson, Zappa

Personally I think Cahill and Luiz will be phased out or sold. I think it's wise to keep them for experience. Luiz is still good enough but not sure Sarri will risk him. Zouma got right battle on to save his career. I think a CB of either Manolas or Rugani will be bought. Gives us options. 4 main ones.

We have a manager who doesn't want to stay, a manager who has openly said the club can't match his ambitions which is a fair comment. Of course, he wants his big pay out and won't leave on his own accord as a result.

Our board foreseen the situation and could see it occur and they should have sorted this mess out ages ago. We should not be head hunting a manager for so long, it affects incoming players etc. I hope the board know what they are doing but if I'm honest they are inept, we don't have proper footballing members within the board.

Board are inept, so frustrating as a fan to constantly hear news of chelsea were not willing to pay the money, i understand we are trying to be self sufficient but we are out here acting like we are broke. We can't sort even sort out our managing position due to finances. Tbh i can't see another premier league club take this long to appoint a manager, forget the top 6.

In the end I'm sure we will appoint Sarri and buy a few panic buys.
