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)

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.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 00:58:21
maybe batshuayi on loan to lyon as part of the deal?

3.) 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.

* 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.

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?

2.) 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?

3.) 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.

4.) 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 💙👏🏼.

5.) 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.

6.) 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.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 17:18:23
Surely with the wages he is getting he could easily move this family o.



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.

Chelsea have lodged a late bid to sign Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Bernard, but the Brazilian is on his way to Everton and is expected on Merseyside for a medical in the next 48-hours (Sky Sports) - Simon Phillips.

obinna 123

1.) 07 Aug 2018 10:26:38
Bernard really isn't what we need, we really have signed some bang average players over the past few years. So I certainly hope Bernard does join Everton.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 10:44:39
Typical Sky Sports mate. All bullrubbish.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 11:11:49
He's free and can surprise everyone - atleast that should count for something (HALF BREAD IS BETTER THAN NOTHING) It's better we get a player like this than end up with nothing (if he isn't good enough, the club can sell him) . This is the kind of player that the club can take a gamble on. He can also be the perfect squad player.
No Ramsey, No Bailey, No Zaha, no Fekir, no pulisic, no Vecino, no SMS etc; no nothing- even the one that's free? Before now we all knew that the attacking midfield/ winger position needed some fortification but nothing has been done about it. This year it's Courtois' problem that we are facing, what if we don't qualify for the UCL next season and certain key players decides to leave- then we the fans starts hating them again. I feel every fan should encourage the club spend now so that we don't face dire situations later. Honestly if we think that we are good for this season- then we have to think again.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 11:43:49
obinna 123, we all know we need additions to our squad. But Bernard really isn't what is needed, it was the same with Drinkwater and Zapacosta last summer. They were squad players and added literally nothing to our team!

The million or so wages Bernard would earn over a year or two's contract should just be put to better use. We already have enough bang average players on our wage bill that should be sold and put to better use imo.

But knowing us we will end up with Bernard, as those are the only type of players the club seem interested in signing of late.

We all want what's best for our club, let's just hope we are a little happier come Thursday.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 11:49:15
I’d rather play Hudson-Odoi every game then have a half talented Bernard on the wings. I think the agent used Chelsea to get a higher contract elsewhere.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 18:27:12
Cos its looking like the club isn't doing anything. Guy we are Chelsea and Chelsea is no small so we should stop acting like one.



06 Aug 2018 13:21:47
Leon Bailey stating in an interview with Kicker that Chelsea and Liverpool are interested in him.
He tweeted an hour ago about having a torn ligament in his shoulder from their preseason camp in Austria. Maybe no deal this summer.

If Kovacic's fee is £80m. PAY IT!

obinna 123

1.) 18 Aug 2018 19:30:09
I didn't think anyone on the pitch could actually dictate more than Jorginho but how wrong was I lol. He is technically immense, such a good passer and dribbles great.

2.) 19 Aug 2018 09:54:10
Yes, Kovacic was great on the ball, but let's not forget as well the cleanest of all tackles when the Gooners were threatening to break - brilliant.



15 Aug 2018 22:56:17
I am not happy as a Nigerian that Victor Moses is retiring from international football; at least he could have given us (Nigerians) another two years before calling it quits. Not a good one for Nigeria- he's like our best player. Well good luck to him.

{Ed002's Note - He has changed his intentions as he was going to finish next March.}

1.) 16 Aug 2018 11:08:29
Thanks Ed.

2.) 17 Aug 2018 09:55:10
I think you will find he realised that under Conte he was given a great opportunity to cement a team place and feel settled at a club and he did not want to lose that. Under Sarri he may well be used differently because of his pace, if only he could finish.



11 Aug 2018 14:09:39

* Kepa,

* Azpi, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso

* Jorginho, Kante, Barkley,

* Pedro, Morata, Willian.

SUBS: Hazard, Zappacosta, Christensen, V. Moses, Giroud, Loftus Cheek, Caballero.

Why no CHO?

2.) 11 Aug 2018 16:01:31
why evem bother having zapacosta on d bench he's absoloutely rubbishe i hate d sight of him.

Where was Fabregas today?

{Ed018's Note - injured}

4.) 11 Aug 2018 21:32:51
Thanks for the reply ed is there any interest in him from abroad I could see him moving on.

{Ed018's Note - not that I’m aware of.}

5.) 12 Aug 2018 07:58:49
Thanks again for your reply mate.



07 Aug 2018 18:31:09
KEPA ARRIZABALAGA is coming to Chelsea. Farewell to Courtois in his future ambitions.

obinna 123

1.) 07 Aug 2018 19:27:16
It’s all going off today. Bakayoko going ac Milan on loan. Hopefully he improves at Milan.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 19:28:07
to be honest I can understand tibo wanting to leave to see his children more his life is not all football somtimes you have to remember that but his actions have been very unprofessional hazard also wanted to leave but returns as normal like a good professional should.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 19:35:30
If my kids lived in a different country I would move heaven and earth to be closer to them. Don’t think he needed to go AWOL Chelsea rarely stand in players way that don’t want to play for us. If they is one thing more important than football it’s family!



06 Aug 2018 17:56:53
Courtois goes AWOL to force Chelsea move- Matt Law.

obinna 123

1.) 06 Aug 2018 18:07:33
Just get him sold as quick as possible, he clearly doesn't want to be here and I don't want players not committed to our club. We're better off with someone who wants to be here.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 18:49:59
I’ve never really disliked a Chelsea player but their was something about Courtois that just felt off. I think the success with athleticio went to his head and he got too big for his boots. Oblak would be a very good replacement if true maybe even an upgrade. Butland or even Pickford please Chelsea don’t go there.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 19:16:27
i agree nwblue he never felt like a true chelsea player the fans loved like cech i even preferred cudicini and imo they were both better. good luck to him his kids are there and i know what its like to be away from your family and its very difficult so good luck tibo and thanks for the memories.

I believe that Morata can become that player.

A) 🔺 (Midfield shape A)
B) 🔻 (Midfield shape B)
C) flat midfield shape
Initially, i thought midfield shape A would serve us better than B esp in big games because of Kante's ball winning/ defensive midfield qualities (complementing Jorginho infront of the defense) but obviously Sarri goes with shape A which is more attacking. From what I can gather from Sarri's interviews, he wants to press more and wants the players (esp midfielders) to close up spaces that appear infront and defenders- behind. I could be wrong but I fell it's a system that will be very efficient with constant running and pressing for 90mins (when players get up to speed) .

I really want Sarri to prove Aureiio DeLaurentes wrong by giving Ampadu and Hudson Odoi more opportunities this season. Sarri should be bold and play them cos they are both class. Whatever be the reason why Odoi isn't in the team all this while, I pray it can be sorted out quickly too.

Very good player (M. Alonso) his eye for goal is amazing. I see him as one of the top three left backs in the world. Though he needs to improve in certain areas of his game like other left backs around.

For now I would like us to reinforce the winger position (right wing- where Pedro/ Willian plays with Pulisic or Leon Bailey but I guess that would mean Willian leaving) ; and D. Luiz's position. Luiz hasn't done badly so far but I don't completely trust him yet (I hope he proves me wrong as the season progresses) . At the moment, i would only replace Morata with Icardi or Lewandowski- if not Morata should stay.
