LMAO! Hugs for Torres.

Absolutely priceless! :D

Reports coming out of Italy that after CFC and Milan agreed in theory the terms for MVG that he's now had a change of heart and wants to stay at CFC. WTF MVG?! I think it was part of the incentive for spurring on the Torres loan move. Probably a good choice for MVG though. As we've witnessed with Romeu, once you leave on loan the chances of making it back into the first team get less and less.
"The only thing I have to say about Jose Mourinho is to thank him, It's down to him that I had the opportunity to be accepted and integrated into the Premier League and I want to thank him for that".

Samuel Eto'o on Mou at Everton unveiling, glad to see him back to EPL, hope you does well, he was a very important player for us last season all though he didnt score that much, his linkup play and trolling goals were a joy to watch.

AC Milan have made a bid to take Chelsea striker Fernando Torres on a season-long loan.

AC Milan you can have him for free! :P

Lol
Please let this be true
I believe Mourinho has been saying he wants Torres to stay more for the sake of team harmony than that he really means it. IMO there's only a few strikers out there that are capable of being the lone striker for us. My top 5: Benteke (well aware he's injured), Bony, Hernandez, Whickham, Eminenke. All of whom would cost upwards of £20 mil+.

The more I read about Destro the more I think we should be looking elsewhere. He's apparently very injury prone. And if you tend to get injured in Italy then you'll definitely pick up some knocks in England. He also is not very good at hold up play, which is so important if you're the only striker. But in the end I trust Mou to do what he thinks is best for us. After all, he is one of us. ;)
C61. .I agree with most of what u said but I do think the kind of CF we need is someone who's quick and can dribble just to add a bit more diversity to our Striker department.
It'll literally blow my mind if jose cons milan into paying 25 million for torres and base on what I have seen so far from him he is very much capable to do that.
Not sure where £25 mil pricetag came from? There is only talk of a season long loan in which Milan aren't prepared to pay his full salary, only 70%. We've talked about Torres many times before and how his predisposition favours open play, not hold up style or poaching. Personally I think he'll have a slight renaisance at a club like Milan. Not just saying that because I want him gone either. I attribute it to his form while playing for Spain. He was always more effective playing their style of football over the way Chelsea play. But yes, in the end if we can pawn him off to another team this will be quite the succesful TW for us. Out with the old, in with the new.
I heard that Milan wants to make it a loan deal while we insisting on a permanent deal.

@Ankitarora, if 25m is true, it would be the greatest football robbery since Ashley Young moved to Man utd for 20m.
@Ashup78

It was £50m.
@the bokiya : Surely ,David Luiz for 40m was the greatest football robbery.
@Ashup: 50m.

And the based on performance, the 50m Chelsea paid Liverpool was, unquestionably, the greatest robbery.

There are rumors about Torres and MVG (loan) move to Milan...I seriously hope it is true.If this happens we might bring in a 2nd choice striker??
I think We should give Torres more Chance ....







Said no Chelsea fan ever
Lol Aaron! The first time in Torres' CFC career that it's nearly unanimous we all want him gone. It could end up being a bit tricky though with finding a suitable replacement even though most of us would prefer nearly anyone.

The problem is finding someone ok with being second in line. It's why we lost Lukaku and Sturridge. If we do get Torres to pack his bags and ship out I'll be dancing in the streets with joy. But it will only happen if we can find someone good but comfortable enough being a backup.
You guys have been more than patient with him already, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, seize it :P
£59.7m for Di-maria..Damn is he that good ?? LOL that is the combined fee we paid for Costa and Cesc :p
He's worth 35-40. But madrid exploited Uniteds situation to get a much larger sum
+1
Man Utd should have negotiated a bit more, no? Di Maria wanted to leave, they were the only option, Madrid had no other option but to sell.. They could've got the price down to at least £50m, no?
Tbh we can't really make fun of that.. I mean we bought Torres for 50m :P

But again... he did technically win us the Champions League (Semi-Final goal vs Barca) and Europa League (Final goal vs Benfica)... xD
+1
@niru , Madrid was perfectly happy to keep him on bench ,

United overpaid for him but his transfer cant be compared with Costa's & Cesc , recently when we sold our players we gave more preference to player's wish then transfer fee , Henry , Villa , Cesc , Sanchez , Ibra all went for less then their actual value .
+2
Niru - even 50m is high for Di-Maria...I have nothing against him, but in my opinion he is surely not at Robben or Ribery level to that high...like Raj mentioned 40m would be a fair deal.
Malik, you're right. But Di Maria wanted to leave, right? And I think he had only one year or so remaining on his contract? So if Real Madrid had to sell, now was the time they'd get maximum money for him. I might be wrong, though.

Barcelona let go of all their players for cheap, that's 100% true. But was it for the sole reason that the player wanted to leave? Juan Mata wanted to leave and we got a proper fee for him. Lukaku wanted to leave, we sold him for £28m which is great. Currently I don't think there's anyone in the squad who's expressed a desire to leave. Cech might, but he hasn't said anything to Mourinho or anyone at the club as far as I know.

I agree though, this can't be compared with the transfers of Costa and Cesc. One's release clause was activated, and one was forced out.
IMO we "underpaid" for Costa and Cesc in this kind of inflated market.
+4
Agreed, @Joshstyle. As Rylan mentioned previously, the Torres transfer is in one way a blessing in disguise, we've been so awesome in the transfer market since that. We got players like Cahill and Azpi for £5m and £8m! And we've pounced on every opportunity to make a good move.
+1
What are you guys on about, you sold a playstation character to PSG for 50 million. On that basis, Di Maria could have well been worth more than 100 mil.
+5
Malik is right, Big teams that are overflowing with talent sometimes have to settle for a lesser price when they have a player who is unsettled. Di Maria wasn't unsettled (by that I mean Real weren't needing to offload), United are desperate, so they pay whatever makes Madrid happy. In the case of Cesc, Barca needed to make room and weirdy no-one was in pursuit of him, at least none of the teams he wanted to go to. Both transfers happened under very different circumstances hence the drastically different prices.
LOL well yeah if you're comparing our transfer to yours by using our biggest transfer and picking some of your better bargains as comparison, obviously ours is going to look ridiculous. Cesc and Costa were both massive bargains in an incredibly inflated market. One with Barca selling their player for dirt cheap for some reason (Sanchez/Cesc/Thiago/Villa,etc) and with Costa wanting to leave Atletico for over a year.

That's like me saying "30m for Schevchenko?! With that money we could get Ronaldo (12m), Van Der Saar (2m), Vidic (6m), Evra(5m), Chicharito (6m)".

Di Maria was one of the best players in the world last season, and should be worth around 45-50m, but given our current situation we'd have to spend that much to get him. I'm happy with our trasnfer tbh.
This market is ridiculously inflated. No offense, but Luiz shouldn't be worth anything near 50m. Same goes for players like Lukaku, Fellaini (wtf?!?), Lallana, etc.
Some of these modern transfer fees are unreasonably high tbh. Players like Kroos, Fabregas, Rakitic, all going for cheap truly are getting rarer and rarer.
@Badge. I agree with nearly everything you said, except the very last part. The bargain players are usually sniffed out by the best Managers. SAF had an uncanny knack for seeing potential in otherwise invisible players and the ability to lift them up and compete at the highest levels. All those purchases you mentioned were down to having a man with a vision and the balls to pursue it. That IMO is whats getting rarer and rarer.
+3
^Very true mate. I think this is why Mou has been able to get all these guys for that price.

I mean think about the business that Mou has done since he joined Chelsea. Got rid of Luiz (50m), Lukaku (30m) and last but not least got rid of a fan favourite in Mata for 37m without even thinking twice. The second he did that I knew he had something big lined up. I didn't think it'd be Fabregas though, lol. He brought in 3 of the best players in Spain for really cheap in all honesty, plus the likes of Matic, etc.

Mourinho's transfers have been pure genius imo. Completely 100% turned that Chelsea team around in one year in charge of the club. And now he's getting Torres loaned to Milan?!
+2
thanks for the earlier birthday wishes guys! ;)
+3
I remember a post in Premier League page one week ago>>
Pre-season form is temporary, s**t is permanent...
Lol absolutely true..
Lol...I think they'll need some time. A lot has happened in the past year or so. They'll sign a few more players and I dont think it will take long for them to rise to the top again.
+1
Not trying to be troll here...but could Man Utd get any worse that was a horrible display today and i don't see how adding Di Maria is gonna sort out their defensive problems??? Food for thought
It wasnt your defense that let you down? What game were you Watchin, your defense as well as your offense was horrendous.

Not tryin to be a jerk jus boggles me how you could say it wasnt your defense that let you down.
Today it wasnt our defensive side that let us down. It was our build up play. We kept giving the ball away to them in our own half and inside our own box for the first goal. It was an all round bad display.

Edit:
@Viper, I dont know if you watched the game but 3 of the goals came from our defenders loosing the ball. First one is a big mistake from Evans in his own box. For the second one our RCB gets looses the ball and gets caught up field and for the third our LWB looses the ball. The last goal was a complete fakup from our defense though but by then the game was over.

I never said that we played good defensively but our defending is not why we lost. It took us till the 72nd minute to record our first shot on target. We couldnt string any kind of passes together and created little to nothing. This plus individual mistakes is why we lost the game not because of our defending.
That 5-2-3 formation is awful. For it to work united need 2 attacking fullbacks, 2 CB's that can play FB, and 2 CM's that can run all day. Why LVG is persisting with it is anybody's guess. It sure the hell isn't working.
+1
@Chelsea61 I think you're right about the formation. They don't have the player who can play that formation right. From all those goals they conceded, it seems like the players are clueless about their role and were unable to find teammates to pass forward.
That fourth goal...the defending was unbelievably bad.
