Hi, just noticed that all Chelsea's top targets this summer are South American. So ED, will the players only make a desicion after the Copa America or could a possible deal be agreed in the middle of the tournament? {Ed002's Note - Work contimues but nobody wants players disrupted during the tournie itself. Work is continuing elsewhere of course and the players return from vacation this coming week.}
--------------------------------------------------Cheers, and does 'work' mean chelsea are pursuing non-south american players, ed?

{Ed002's Note - I think at the moment there is interest in one or two but I am sure the new manager will be having a say.}
---------------------------------------------------
Who are they ED?

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to speculate further than those already discussed. We have to wait to see what teh new manager thinks of the squad.}

Ed: There was a rumour a few weeks back about Chelsea watching the Tevez situation. Is this now done with or could be still something in it? I know Tevez is a complicated case nut any input would be great. {Ed002's Note - There was no interest that I am aware of.}

ed were bidding for all these top end players
but do the club realise we hasve a small squad and will need some less extravagent but good squad players aswell {Ed002's Note - I am sure they realise that they need to do some work on the squad.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

02 Jul 2011 19:53:38

ed are we genuinely interested in any other porto players
fernando would be a good signing and maybe moutinho

chelsea to buy falcao and fund it by selling anelka malouda drogba. srikeforce of torres falcao sturridge and kalou. use the transfer budget set to improve on the midfield with targets such as modric moutinho and banega

Believable6 Unbelievable7

Oh yay kalou

Agree0 Disagree0

The post lost complete credibility with the inclusion of Kalou...

Agree0 Disagree0

Drogbas the one that made us to the champions league and hes the top scorer

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope torres comes good but looking at last season I very much doubt it.

Agree0 Disagree0

If i had a dollar every time kalou screwed up i wouldbe a millionaire

Agree0 Disagree0

Torres should come good, the end of last season he looked much better and with a pre season he should be able to fit in better

Agree0 Disagree0

Drogba wasnt top scorer mate... it was Anelka

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 18:13:46
ED, do you believe falcao will join chelsea.and are chelsea interested in nasri as i think he's better than modric. thanks {Ed002's Note - I am not so sure that Falcao will. I expect the Porto team would like to stay together to take a shot at the Champions League and he may have concerns about the number of starts he will get at Chelsea. I know nothing of any Nasri interest.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

02 Jul 2011 18:03:19
Ed: What is your opinion on Falcao? Is he the right oprion or the easy one because of AVB? {Ed018's Note - he certainly is a proven goal scorer and i believe he is only 25. i think its a good option}

Believable4 Unbelievable0

02 Jul 2011 17:32:30
why are we after falcao. he probabley wont even start we need sanchez. why cant we add on the money we were going to spend on falcao to the offer for sanchez {Ed002's Note - You really have no idea about how the transfer process works. In any case, the concern that Falcoa's agent will likely have is about a starting role.}

Believable0 Unbelievable3

02 Jul 2011 17:03:47
ed how much have we bid for falcao as he has a release clause {Ed002's Note - Put all thought of "release clauses" out of your mind. Porto stated a figure that would be acceptable to them and Chelsea agreed that they would pay it. That has given them permission to make a proposal to his representative. As far as I know, that is where we are.}

are chelsea looking at that swiss guy shaqiri. he is class {Ed002's Note - Not as far as I know.}

how come atletico are the only ones who can pay agueros wages {Ed002's Note - They are not the only ones who can, they are his employers so they do. Otheres are looking to strike a deal.}

Believable1 Unbelievable4

02 Jul 2011 16:07:16
would neymar actually consider going to anzhi or whatevr their called {Ed002's Note - I very much doubt it.}

Believable0 Unbelievable6

02 Jul 2011 15:29:38
hey ed, if real madrid get sahin neymar and aguero would a few of their players like ozil di maria and khedira want more first team football? {Ed002's Note - It is impossible to answer these "what if" questions.}

Believable0 Unbelievable4

The question didn't have a 'what if' in it. {Ed002's Note - It had an "and" in it - so it become "what if a and b and c happens" and it is impossible to answer sensibly.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 15:22:18
neymar will sign for real madrid but stay at santos for one more year this is what has clinched the deal for madrid.
aguero hopefully arrives at the bridge but i think after watching a few of falcaos games i think he will take the prem bye storm if he arrives great header of the ball great movement and great feet and scores for fun.
i dont know why we are looking at modric with sneijder 10 times the player modric is.
pastore would be the future lampard but he the same as neymar is playing games between a host of clubs.
josh mc on loan to a prem side to see how he can progress with regular starts only with a good passing team so he can play his game.

hello ed are Chelsea interested in sergio ramos?thank you {Ed002's Note - I don't think so right now.}

Believable2 Unbelievable6

02 Jul 2011 14:32:54
ed, who have chelsea actually made a bid for this transfer window, ive read a lot and on this page but i cant make sense of it? {Ed002's Note - There are currently bids on the table for Falcao, Nemar, Pastore and Sanchez. Discussions have been held with clubs or player representatives over a number of other players including Eriksen, Van Der Weil, de Bruyne, Lukaku, Aguero and perhaps some others. Lucas Piazon will be joining in January and Wallace at a date to be decided.}

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Thankyou, very helpful :)

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 14:16:04
Ed, why have we ditched Bruma, I thought he was part of the future core of our team? {Ed002's Note - He wanted regular games and Chelsea could not offer that - so a loan has been made where he can get regular games.}

Believable1 Unbelievable3

Is there a chance that if his development progresses well we will bring him back? {Ed002's Note - I don't expect so.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 13:17:03
ED002 several reports are saying Chelsea could enter the Nasri race do you think its viable? {Ed002's Note - Let's hope not.}

Believable6 Unbelievable6

Why is this ED002 dont you rate him as a player? {Ed002's Note - Nope.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you think AVB would rather have Juao Moutinho then Modric and Nasri ? {Ed002's Note - I have no idea.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Id much prefer modric/moutinho, nasri had 1 good spell this season, it seems like thats all he has ever done

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair i rate the guy pretty highly, good passer, creative, skillful and can score a few goals. Good player in my book but i suppose its the beauty of football that fans have different opinions.

Agree0 Disagree0

He looked amazing at marseille when ribery was there, he hasn't shown any consistancy. nasri is not what is needed, we should buy pastore, sanchez and aguero

Agree0 Disagree0

Nasri is better than modric and younger than sneidjer he is exactley what we need

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 13:03:55
Neymar has confirmed that he is staying at santos
source goal.com {Ed002's Note - I would not read too much in to that.}

Believable5 Unbelievable3

People should stop beliving everything you read

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn't rule it out, santos has told neymar that they have plans to bring back former fan favourites robinho and diego in the next 2 years and keep him, ganso and elano

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 12:38:18
I just hope luiz does not leave surely chelsea wont sell him ed? {Ed002's Note - He is not for sale and I don't anticipate leaving. He was certainly happy at the club a while back. If he says he wants to leave that is another matter.}

Believable4 Unbelievable0

Interesting that we are being linked with Cahill though

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 12:24:22
hello ed I just wanted to ask your opinion on our transfer market strategy?I am happy to see the club see value in players such as pastore, i just wanted your view on our strategy in the transfer market ed?thank you {Ed018's Note - i think its pretty clear that they understand its time to bring in young talent to refresh the squad. and im glad thats the approach. we dont need to bring in any proven 30 year olds, we have plenty of them.}

Believable4 Unbelievable0

02 Jul 2011 12:17:46
Ed, what is all this stuff about cahill. We dont need him, we have got 3 world class cb in JT Luiz and Alex. Really cant see the point in this transfer. {Ed018's Note - they may be looking to bring in a long term replacement for Terry. and its hard to say what could happen with Alex or Ivanovic. i dont think they want to sell either of them but Ivanovic prefers to play center back and gets asked to play right back quite frequently, so he may want to move if a good oppurtunity comes his way.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

Cahill is not good enough for our side.

I know he is very young, but Nathanial chabolah looks a fantastic prospect.
He has been playing in competition's way above his age group all his life. He is currently captain of england u17 at the world cup & is the main man in that side too.
We still have J, bruma we can bring back from hamburg after his loan.
We don't need to be wasting money on an average CB.
We need to just concentrate on the creative players, that we are currently making bids for.
Do you agree Ed ? {Ed002's Note - No. Bruma will not play for Chelsea. Chabolah is a kid right now. The plan was for Subotic to come in next season.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Was for subotic? what is it now {Ed002's Note - Perhaps still the same. Don't forget there is a new manager. Although he has been asked before about players, he will not have been consulted on all.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 12:15:40
I think can forget Neymar. Too much hot and cold. Chelsea back to the drawing board to try and reignite Lukaku deal.
