Traore transfe fee was quoted around 19m and turned out to be 10m...Hopefully same happens with Lukaku & Sandro transfer and fee is significantly lower than the rumored 80 and 60m respectively
Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore has joined Lyon for £8.8m (10m euros).

Horseshit!!...Day light robbery!

http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/40412530
I can only hope that there are plenty of bonuses, and other such things involved.
Maybe unofficial buy-back clause(because French FA does not allow buyback) ? That is the only possibility
+1
I suspect same bro
We get 15% of the fee when he is sold again. And if we want to buy him back, we get dibs. Considering all that, 10m ain't bad. He isn't good enough to break into our XI atm at least; even Thorgan was better.

I'm worried we'll sell Ake without a buy back tho. Hope Ake stays, he's good enough to start :/
Bournemouth are reportedly closing in on a £20m deal to take back Aké

Scary bad..Traore and now this. Atleast milk 35/40m or add buy-back clause
2022: Chelsea agreeing a 60m pounds deal for Nathan Ake.
+3
I heard there is buy back clause on them.
I guess player dont want to be on loan anymore because it impacts game time..sell and include buy back is best option.

Honestly Ake and Traore have great potentially..but neither is ready to be regular starters for team fighting for PL and CL. So it make sense if they can find a club which can give them complete game time and include buyback just incase
Sorry but none of those guys is worth 35m upfront. I think for Traore whose move is now officially confirmed, we will get around 20m upfront with either add ons or buy back clause. It will be more or less the same for Ake.
Traore 10m. Ake 20m.
Ake 12-15mil
Traoe 10-12mil

No one unless their a club with money will pay 30-40mil for them lol. Good move by both players, I do feel for Ake the most. His been with Chelsea for a long time, he showed great potential at Bourenmouth but honestly, he should have left Chelsea long ago.
Tiemoue Bakayoko: Chelsea close to signing Monaco midfielder

http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/40405216
Thanks is as good as official confirmation
Chelsea in talks to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alex Sandro


http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11668/10927775/chelsea-in-talks-to-sign-tiemoue-bakayoko-and-alex-sandro
Great news..cant wait for it to be official.

#July1st 😊
+1
Why ditch Alonso though? He was great this season!

I'd understand buying a backup for him, but now he's going to be 2nd choice.
Alonso can't defend. It's not really a huge problem (except in big games) but when there's a chance to possibly sign a much better player, it's a no-brainier.

Also one of Chelsea's biggest problems after previous title wins is being complacent and never improving the starting XI. Conte promised to change that.
Joreon..we aren't ditching Alonso we just want more quality in the team. Like u guys we need top class starters and above average back ups :D
I already know how home grown rule works in registering players, but please is there any rule that forced EPL clubs to field at least one English player in the starting 11? I need clarification on this from anyone that knows much about it.
I don't think so as I remember a commentator saying no English players in Arsenal's XI in some motd. Not fully sure tho
Home grown players must have played in England at least 3 years until they're 21 or 22 I believe, correct me if I'm wrong. Moses is home grown, I think Zouma will be home grown despite being Nigerian and French respectively. Mikel was home grown, so you don't even necessarily have to be English, just trained in England for 3 years before you're an adult.
Not that I am aware of.

Aside from the minimum HG quote in the 25 man squad, there is no requirement for specific nationalities in the first XI.

we are paying 60m to Sandro...No matter how good he is. It is 20m more and he better make it worth
20m more? He's the 2nd best LB behind Marcelo.. probably 10m more but considering today's market it could be the best buy of our season if it happens. Lukaku on the other hand feels like a very risky move.
Juve is milking us this time, they knew we need him badly that's why they want to get as higher as they can. In today's market Sandro is worth at most 50m but we rushed and made first bid st 50m which they rejected, that means we must increase the big to force them to sell.
Juve fans on the other hand are sad that they are letting Sandro go and any replacement will be inferior. We are getting a top, top quality player, the price is fine.
60m is not too bad for a player of his quality in the current market and There are hardly any player better than him in his position. But still that is one hell of a price.
60 millions for Sandro, then how much for Lukaku? 90??? I am really scared we gonna go close to 100 for Lukaku and he will give us two Torress.
Sandro is a fantastic player but I would not pay over £50m for him. His team may have gone to the CL final but they were totally outclassed RM despite scoring first iirc. Nobody is competing fir his signature so if we negotiate properly we could get him for that price or less with add ons maybe taking it up to a couple of millions.

There are decent players out there who just need a top team to believe in them and play with better players who we can get for reasonable price. We did it with Alonso last year and Moses so unless our scouts or Conte's scouts are lazy we should not be duped into paying 60m for a defender.

I dont believe the figures been thrown around by the media though. Chelsea will not pay that much for a defender. Hazard, Kante, Fabregas, Costa we got for under 40m despite their quality and even Bakayoko is rumoured to be around 35m.

Our transfer policy changed after Torres since then not even Mourinho could get the board to sign any player for over 40m.
+1
Realistically though, who is actually a better LB/LWB than Sandro?

Top 3 are probably Marcelo, Alaba, and Sandro. 60M for that quality is fine.
+2
^this. Plus he's 26, just entering his prime.
+1
i dont think sandro is as good as the other two though..marcelo, alaba, luis, there are a few i would put ahead of sandro. 60 million is a lot.
+2
Yes we are paying 15m more for Sandro just as United paid 39m more for Pogba.
I think 50m is the best Chelsea could've hoped for. Big club like Juve won't let a starter in his prime leave for cheap.

SiF, what other few lmao? You can't possibly name another LB regarded in the same class as those 4. Alba?

Also Filipe is 31 and not better than Sandro.
100% cannot say Filipe Luis is better than Sandro. Plus he's like 5 years older.
aren't they both brazilian? one's in the brazilian team, one isnt. filipe luis has been in that brazil squad for a while now, no?

and if you want to go by age, dani alves is 34 and he's a better wingback than sandro. not as much about age as about quality. he's obviously very good, i know his stats are great, I just haven't been impressed when i've seen him play.
Are we really going to buy Bakayoko for 35 millions and sell Matic for 40 millions?
+1
hopefully
40mil for Matic? What kind of sorcery are you guys pulling when it comes to negations on selling players.
I don't know where the media pulled 40m for Matic from, he's 29, it's impossible.
Its united that want to buy him so we won't let him leave for cheap. Other foreign club can buy him for 20m but to rivals its double.
Given age, position and his form of last two years I will be happy if Matic is sould for 20-25 millions. 40 sounds too much. But the market is crazy. Good defenders and fullbacks are priced at 60-70 millions. Jesus... if you buy three solid defenders it will cost you 180-200 millions....
More papers are reporting 40m, would be crazy.
Like N’Golo Kanté, Bakayoko chose Chelsea over Manchester United because of Conte — report from L’Equipe
It's not like United wanted them anyway
+10
^LOL
+3
Wasn't too good vs juve, doesn't have the defensive awareness. He is very good on the ball though.
He's not an actual DM, he's more of a strong box to box player with good dribbling for his position and decent passing. Don't think he would work for Utd when they already have Pogba and Herrera doing similar things.
^ Well fans argue that Pogba is better as CAM..especially when ever he underperforms that excuses of him playing deeper and defensive duty comes-up.

Kante-Bakayoko could be good mixture of power and skills to control midfield.
+1
he wore the 10 shirt at juventus, thats where the better as CAM comes from.

in reality he was playing LCM for juve at his best, thats where he wants to play. CM with freedom to run forward and join the attack, not playing the last man before the defense, not playing ozil role. he can stretch the pitch with passing and running in transition, he's better in CM.

@theo, doesnt really matter if he's dm or not, he didnt show good defensive awareness as a midfielder to track runs from deep, kante cant be everywhere, as a midfielder you have to know when to defend and mark those forward runs into space. and he did not do that vs juventus and cost his team at least one of those goals.
I know I saw that game and posted something similar on this page.

He has clear weaknesses like defensive awareness and unnecessary risks at the back, but also positives that Chelsea don't get in Matic/Cesc.
Well Lukaku just dropped a hint on Instagram recently. Posted a video of him playing pickup football at what looks like Cobham. Chelsea logo all around the pitch.
I think his still in USA
Yea, this was just on some US pitch in LA. Blame social media for baiting me lmao
It was during his spell at Chelsea it seems.

Here's sky sports transfer feed reporting it
