There is a rumour Chelsea is going for Kevin Prince Boateng. Italian press.

Believable10 Unbelievable16

Fee agreed at 14.5 million euros both parties and player happy to conclude the deal quickly

Agree0 Disagree0

Makes sense at that price. Strong utility player we've been missing since Essien injury.

Versatile players like Boateng and Schuerlle being looked at suggests that Essien and/or Marin may be off permanently.

Agree1 Disagree0

That seems to good to be true at that price

Agree0 Disagree1

I am sure that Essien as one of Mourinhos favorite players will stay. He will probably be starter. Marin. Moses and Ba will be used as baits to get players like Suarez.

Ed, I appreciate if you don't want to go into details but would you say we have a good chance of signing Edinson Cavani?
EH17 {Ed002's Note - A would not go as far as saying there is a good chance. The issue remains the difficulty in dealing with Napoli.}

Believable10 Unbelievable4

Ed002 Have we got as far as agreeing a fee yet or is that still under discussion? {Ed002's Note - See previous answers.}

Agree0 Disagree2

Im guessing then ED Chelsea are not willing to pay the fee that he has in his contract?

Agree0 Disagree0

Can I just check I have the principal right Ed? We have primarily agreed a fee (which they are happy with at the moment) and we can talk to the player about personal terms but nothing is quite set in stone yet?
EH17 {Ed002's Note - Sort of.}

Agree0 Disagree0

That's good enough for me Ed, cheers again :)
EH17

Ed would you expect Chelsea to sign Cavani this transfer window? {Ed002's Note - Possibly.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Is the difficulty with Napoli that they want the entire minimum fee release clause plus Fernando Torres, but Chelsea want to just pay the release clause and get additional money for Torres? {Ed002's Note - Give me a break - I have no interest in discussing the finances.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed 002 Has anyone ever written a book about the Transfer machinations that happen in certain situations like Napoli & Cavani or Athletico and Falcao for example?
It would certainly be a fascinating read if it were possible. {Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed do u expect this saga with cavani to stretch out for a while? {Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer anything about the timing of events.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2013 15:18:50
One question Ed. The Times seem very very sure Jovetic will be going to Chelsea. what's your take on this, especially now when Cavani fee has been agreed? I assume the both of them coming is not really feasible. ? Would really appreciate if you answered, yes, I know I mentioned newspapers, but still.

Thank :-) {Ed002's Note - I have no idea what The Times has said - and really have nothing to contribute to any discussion.}

Believable5 Unbelievable8

I would actually prefer Jovetic, I mean he's cheaper and younger than Cavani.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mourinho has confirmed everyone will get a chance, before being loaned/sold.

Believable10 Unbelievable6

Yeah, a chance in pre season!

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2013 14:29:35
Hey eds,
Any chance we'll be offloading Cech and bringing Courtois back to Chelsea? Had outstanding seasons with Athletico! {Ed002's Note - Not this summer.}

Believable2 Unbelievable8

07 Jun 2013 15:18:53
Unlikely that Cech will be offloaded, but Courtois should be brought back now that Turnbull and Hilario are released.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2013 16:38:09
What a hopeless question! Why shoud we be 'offloading' the best GK in the EPL in the past decade and statistically the best GK ever in the EPL just to bring in a youngster? Courtois shoud go on a season-long loan and thereafter return compete with Cech for the right to be our No. 1.

Agree1 Disagree1

Are the club looking to bring in a back up goalkeeper ed? {Ed002's Note - As has been discussed before, yes.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Are they still trying to find suitable 'home-grown' options?

Agree0 Disagree1

Spanish press are writing that Real Madrid offered 25m pounds for Mata. It is to hard to believe.

Believable2 Unbelievable22

Lmao marca just tryign to cause unrest for jose in this day and age in football matter is a 50-60 mil player min

Agree0 Disagree0

We paid a little under that for him
And his even better now. If bales worth £85m then what is mata worth

Agree0 Disagree0

Mata is Real Madrid kid. I am not, suprised about their interest . What is possible that offer is 25 mil.


+player probably DiMaria. That would make sense.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is total crap! Haha, the fee is a joke and Mourinho is not an absolute moron!

Agree0 Disagree0

Id value Mata at around 45m, we payed 24m for him, I think, so I doubt we would sell or 25m.

JMJW

Agree0 Disagree0

If Schurrle and Hulk sign, Mata will be sold for sure.

Agree0 Disagree2

Seems very unlikely as Real are interested in signing David Silva according to Ed002 and they are very similar players.

Agree0 Disagree1

Don't get to excited but according to an Italian source €58m agreed for cavani

I can see us still going for hulk too

Believable16 Unbelievable4

Anything to add ed? True, False? {Ed002's Note - Chelsea are in a position where they can talk with the player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Come on chels! make it happen!

Agree0 Disagree0

So despite actual amount a fee has been agreed. ? Exciting stuff, long way to go but will this stop us going for hulk?

Agree0 Disagree0

YESSSSSSSS!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I love you ed002!

Agree0 Disagree0

This looks like a good news

Eds are galatasaray intetested in jon obi mikel. Maybe straight swap for sneijder.

NWBLUE {Ed002's Note - There is interest from them.}

Believable11 Unbelievable11

That would be the best transfer of the summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

That's fantastic news Ed. let's hope he goes. Thanks for the info and the great work you are doing! Studley

Agree0 Disagree0

£10m+ would be great business in my opinion

Agree0 Disagree0

Or just sell him the last thing we need is another dud.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wow. I was one step ahead. Great news.

OMG That's like Totes Amazeballs. Well Reem!

Nathswindon

Agree0 Disagree0

Great sale but he has been a great player for us especially when it comes to showing his dedication to the club, namely during the time his Father was kidnapped.

Agree1 Disagree0

Ed what club are interested in Belhanda of Montpellier? {Ed002's Note - Right now, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Galatasaray and Aston Villa - interest from Inter has likely gone.}

Believable3 Unbelievable6

06 Jun 2013 18:30:30
Ed02 are we trying to sign Hulk? {Ed002's Note - There is again interest in Hulk.}

Believable10 Unbelievable3

Glad to hear it, his a better option than Schurrle. Thanks ed

Cfc Dan

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks Ed,

Is Hulk a player that the club would like to add as well as Schurrle and Cavani or is he seen as an alternative to one of them?

Thanks,

MiketheBlue {Ed002's Note - Don't try to complicate matters.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Not really trying to complicate matters, there are a number of press outlets saying we want all three players.

It just seems a little excessive as we already have a fair few attackers.

Cheers

MiketheBlue

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Hulk would be more of a striker option, as he has played that role a lot recently. Torres will leave, as most likely will Ba, that leaves us very short up top. Schurrle will be a squad player, we can not rely on Mata, Oscar and Hazard all performing and staying fit/injury free.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2013 11:50:56
Im not a fan of youtube clips because it only shows the good. But him on the right hand side of our attacking trio, coming inside and shooting could be special. His Porto goal and assist ratio was outstanding.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't like Hulk and think this would be a mistake signing for the money he is worth.

Agree0 Disagree1

He was good in The Avengers but the other films were a bit naff. Should stick to his football.

Ed, Napoli boss is waiting a phone call from Chelsea tonight. They will negotiate over Cavani. Ed, do you expect this deal to drag on all summer (we know Napoli is tough dealers and know what they want for the player, also they know, Chelsea have the money they are asking for) or do you expect Chelsea to secure their "top-target" quick, and just pay the asking fee immediately? {Ed002's Note - I would not believe everything you read in the papers. As I have explained on numerous occasions Chelsea has had a long term interest in Cavani - I have had streams of abuse from the posters saying he has already joined Manchester City and quoting Twitter and all of the other BS at me. There is little point in saying anything else or repeating myself.}
