get his replacement in a.s.a.p. even if he then stays is not like we can`t use upgrades in our front 3.the longer we hold on for a higher price the less time we have to replace him in this window..plus teams will over inflate the price once we have that major fee we`ll get for him and less time to spend it.

for me if we going to play a 4-3-3 again ,longterm we have CHO but we still need 2 or 3 others for those edges..i`m intrigued by the thought of Pedro under Sarri but he`s only a short term fix for a year or two.

Costa left, Fabregas is not playing anymore for sure, Courtois will leave and Hazard too. End of an era, end of one very good CFC generation, way too soon.

How JT, FL, DD (with PČ and AC) lasted for almost 10 years, and this generation lasted only for like 5 years? Well, because of all the Essiens, Ballacks, Ivanovićs, Carvalhos, Anelkas, Joe Coles. That's the only difference.

Refused to believe anything at the moment. Rumour starting with the words "his father bla bla" sounds like make up story to me. One thing for sure him and Courtois has to report back to Sarri first and let's see how it is going from then. One thing concrete is that Sarri want him to stay.

It's is not money... We can afford to buy players even without selling those guys u listed up there....Its Hazard willingness to go....

I'm wondering who  released the press pics of the away kit with Eden center?

We can crop it out if needed :Goober:

We want him to stay for sure. So it all depends on him. Sign the extension ffs.

We might actually lose him this time, there's so much pressure, its not looking good. We need a contingency plan, if we can get Lozano and Bailey then Hazard can go, because if Madrid don't get him now, he'll definitely go for much less next season. 

He's been a great player for us and we'll definitely miss him if he goes.

There’s only “so much pressure” if you start believing every nonsense rumor. Not confident Hazard will stay but it’s kinda annoying that people choose to believe rumors that conform to their fears over reliable sources. Contrary to what’s reported by that le10 sport, the most reliable source on Belgian players has said nothing has been agreed between us and Real Madrid...

Don't believe any of it, so we're back to talking about Hazard bids, what happened to Courtois?

This has only been so big of a story all week off the interviews they both gave after the WC, since then, nothing has been said and it's just repeated bullshit, everyone making up fees etc, with just over 2 weeks left on the transfer window, if these where going, surely we would have something more concrete to talk about by now, don't expect me to believe that we will discuss what they want to do when they return from holidays, that gives us what, less than a week to sell and replace them? Can't see it happening some how.

Courtois will only go if we can find a replacement, according to Kristof. But god knows who that replacement is gonna be. There have been some underwhelming names mentioned.

For the record, I want Hazard to sign a new deal. It is looking like he wants this move, and frankly I don't blame him. He has not made a fuss through a chaotic Chelsea time, and he is being a good soldier now. If Madrid wants to offer Asensio + 100-125m I am taking the deal. I am selling Willian to Barca for 60-70m. That puts anywhere from 160-190m in the chest for immediate spend. I am bringing in Milinkovic-Savic(100m), Fekir(60m) and/or Leon Bailey(50m). It resets our team age to all grow together and we can make better use of our academy. Will we win a trophy next year? probably not, unless its Europa. But we will be set up for an extremely bright future. 

Core of Team Moving Forward

GK: Donnarumma or Schmeichel 

Defenders: Azpi(CAPTAIN), Rugani, Rudiger, Christensen, Emerson, Moses

Midfield: Milinkovic-Savic, Jorginho, Kante, Golovin, RLC, Bakayoko, Barkley

Attackers: Asensio, Leon Bailey(or Fekir or both), Hudson-Odoi, Mount

Strikers: Higuain, Bats, Tammy

That is potentially one of the best midfields in the world, Some of the brightest young exciting attackers, and Some strikers with a nose for the goal. This is purely a hypothetical, its more just my thoughts on what we should do in an unfortunate situation.

Ideal scenario would be if Sarri were to convince Hazard to stay and sign that new contract with however much wages he asks for and maybe even containing a 'reasonable' release clause (in the €150M ballpark) for foreign clubs next summer. Kind of like Griezmann with Atletico last year, and as it turns out he ended up not even wanting to move when the time came.

That way the club would get to enjoy Eden for at least another year without having to worry about losing him for peanuts next year, but it would be with a written guarantee that the club wouldn't stand in his way if he still wanted to go this time in 2019 as long as someone paid the clause.

But IF he's sold this summer, the next couple of weeks are crucial. Bailey, Brandt, Lozano, Pulisic, Dembele would be where I'd look for a replacement and get one (or two) from that bunch, depending on who's available.

Don't forget we have Callum Hudson-Odoi.

That lad is going to be a huge star here. 

We need a ready made, experienced replacemrnt yes but talk of us not having a player of huge quality for quite some time once Eden leaves is wrong.

I think it is truly time for a new era at Chels. 

If Eden goes, then milk it for all he is worth and do it this summer. 

As much as I will miss the guy, we are still Chelsea F.C and we will still fight to be top dogs of England and Europe. 

Exactly. Isn't the first time and won't be the last time we lose a top player. 170M if it is agreed, is a great deal for us if we reinvest it correctly. Which has to be done now. Fair enough there aren't many Edens out there but personally there are more than enough attacking players in the world to find someone who could grow into something special.

We may not win a trophy next season, but it is critical that we get top 4 next season, absolutely critical. Failure to get it will cause a further chain reaction of players leaving.

Agreed, expectation every year has to be at a minimum top 4. I am nervous going into the season, top 6 is as competitive as ever and we are coming from a weaker position. New manager, unrest in the squad. I am excited for the season, but also nervous.
