    Not at all, Kovacic, rudi, willian, Azpi has been a mainstay. I think he knows we need a mix of experience with the young ones. But we need those experienced players to be at the top of their game. ATM it's not really working out with Azpi/Alonso exposed so often

    Telles would be good for you, the age shouldn't be a concern

    Surprised he remained at Porto for so long.

    Telles will be 28 next season. Feels a little out of sync with Lampard's heavy youth focus thus far. You'll get maybe 3-4 years out of him and then he'll be washed up probably.

    Would be incredibly stupid to only buy youngsters, always best to have a mix of experience and youth.

    Some great moments and he put in a shift. And ❤️❤️❤️❤️ over spurs. Hero, but his return over the years has been poor in truth.

    Happy to have had him at Chelsea, some good times, and he’s given plenty to the club.

    If he wants a 3 years contract and can get that elsewhere good for him, I wouldn’t even want him on a two year contract tbh, so I’m okay with him leaving.

    We’re all social distancing.

    That's a no brainer for me if true. We could probably get rid of Kepa for a similar fee.

    If we could get both Telles and Onana for around £60m that would be great business.

    That's insanely cheap for a keeper of his quality, not mush risk involved in taking a gamble.

    Onana is great, would be some upgrade.

    Onana
    James - Tomori - Zouma/Christensen - Telles

    Two exciting additions that would represent good value. Would be a definite improvement upon our current defence.

    Andreas has shown he isn't good enough imo. Doesn't have the composure for a top CB.
  • Ahmer50x

    Think you need a commanding CB in there next to Tomori. A leader to guide him and organize the back 4.

    Similar to United splurging on Maguire last summer or Liverpool on VVD a few years back (just to avoid confusion, I'm not comparing those two in terms of level, just the role they play in their respective squads)

    We all thought that would be Rudi but he hasn't looked the same since coming back from injury. It's not like he's lost his legs. The whole back line gets nervy. Imo it stems from the lack of confidence in kepa and kepas lack of dominance in the box. Gets flustered far too easy. There's a reason he's called flappy at the bridge

    If Kepa even comes out for the ball that is.

    Exactly though. And when he does evetyone ❤️❤️❤️❤️ themselves as they know it's getting a soft palm to the far post

    Having a keeper who has the faith of his backline will help, but it won't be enough IMO

    Koulibaly is probably the ideal option and one of few on the market who meet the criteria

    De laurentis is such a ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I'd rather we gave Napoli a swerve after the hoops they had us jump for him last time

    Since Kante was injured quite a bit this season, how good actually are Jorginho and Kovacic in defence and how is their awareness? It's not only about the GK and defence, I remember us conceding goals because we had the likes of Gerrard and later Can in defensive midfield, on top of our bad back 5.

    I thought Telles was on the verge of heading to PSG.

    Yeah, seems like it's a done deal now. Disappointing but it's not the end of the world.

    It also looks like United are going to win the race for Sancho. Again, disappointing news but I think it was always more of a hopeful signing rather than an actual expectation. It looks as though Coutinho is a very real alternative.

    Not too keen on it either, I'm not sure why we need him now we have Ziyech. I'd only be interested if we can get a really good deal.

    Stacked for CAMs, ziyech, RLC, Mount, Barkley all in contention for 1 spot.
