honestly, i disagree with this, there were several ocasions today, where Pedro and Willian found themselves in good situatios ( like that lucky bounce that set Pedro through on goal, only for him to be disposessed one on one) only to screw it up. A player of higher quality would have made something out of it, Bernardo would have probably beat his man and have a shot on goal, or a cross on that situation. Its these moments that really make a difference during the game, and honestly, only Hazard on our team can make the most of it on most situations.

Also, this physicality thing is severely overrated, David Silva, Sterling, countless other frail players have prospered on the PL, if you are good enough, your quality will shine through. This myth needs to end.

You mix fragile with small. Kante, Sterling, Eden, Coutinho, Shaqiri,...neither is big but they are quite strong and balanced players. 

Then you have Matas and finaly Cuadrados...

But they can hardly push through defenders, can they? 

However the point again isnt in Silva that he is tiny and not capable to handle PL, but rather his style of play which is similar to Eden and I prefer we target Bale, Robben, Sanchez type of player. Direct with good finish. 

And Silva is exceptional player, but you are making him next Messi. He is good, but a long way to reach Eden, Neymar etc.

We look absolutely clueless without Hazard, and yet, people are against signing Silva, because we have Pedro and Willian. FFS.

Most teams look clueless away at Stoke. The place is a ridiculously tough place to get a result, let alone play well. I don't think even silva would have been able to do much. What we need is a goalscoring midfielder like Lamps who will take shots from outside the box.

Lampard, Beckham, C.Ronaldo, Henry and Gerrard. These PL players made into top three in Ballon D'or competition in last 20 years. People always talk about David Silva forgetting these players and what they have accomplished. Size, strength and balance matters in England.

lol, i may be advocating too much for him, but its because our RW has been bothering me for so long its driving me mad! Its genuinely the first time i´ve been this excited about a possible transfer, because finally i found a player that is young, already at a level where he is ready to contribute right away to our team, has an insane amount of skill,PLENTY of room to grow AND is actually available on the market.

All these things combined makes me wonder how is it possible that anyone can think that there is a better alternative out there. Think about it, who could we realistically sign, that could come in, become an instant starter and stay there for possibly the next ten years? I love Sanchez, but i really dont think that Arsenal will sell him to a rival, and he is already 28/9, for the fee that he would cost( assuming that Arsenal would sell him to us) plus the wages, and i dont see how he would be a better choice for us, even though he would arguably "fit" here more due to his goal scoring prowess ( which werent really as good playing on the RW as he probably would here).

Eden's performances at Lille were equal with but not better than Silva's current performances IMO. Only difference being, Silva's had more chances to prove he can do it outside of France, and taken every chance well. To not acquire him would be sad. Though personally I wouldn't play him on the right wing every single game. I'd have him share that right wing with another player, and then on other days, allow Hazard a rest and play on the left. He shouldn't be an automatic solid starter; that mentality has made too many players of ours adopt a lax mentality.

Why would it? We bought two( three if you count Courtois) players from Atletico in 2014.

Besides, the reports linking us to Monaco players were claiming that we were planning on buying 3 Monaco players( Sidibé, Bakayoko and more recently Bernardo), so if anything this gives those reports more credibility.

All we can do is hope it happens unfortunately.

Chelsea FC doesn't need another Juan Mata if we're going to become respectable CL team again.

He is nothing like Mata, thats a lazy comparison.

His work rate is immense, his driblling is 10x better than Mata´s, he is ALOT faster than Mata, and his passing is just as good as his, the only area that Mata is better than Bernardo is finishing, but Silva is no poor finisher either. Plus he is 22

I started to pay attention to him 2 seasons ago. When i watch him play, im just in awe with how skillfull he is, the things he does with the ball, his ability in tight spaces is remarkable, and dare i say, messi like. He was very raw during his first season at Monaco, but the talent was clearly there, which is why Monaco paid 18M to Benfica for a player that didnt even kicked a ball for them,but he is improving, and FAST, the difference between his first season and this one is nothing short of remarkable. Us not getting him, would be a similar scenario that happened with Dybala, people called him a one season wonder, and that he wasnt "worth the price", and now people are willing to pay 100M for him, Bernardo will be the same, i can guarantee that he will be among the best players in the world in a few years, if he isnt already, because this season he has been the best player in a league that has players like Verratti, Di maria and Cavani. Signing Sanchez( we can try all we want, Arsenal wont sell him to us, of that i am certain) who will be 29 at the start of next season  and ignoring Bernardo would be stupidity  IMO, even though Sanchez is the better player right now.

We won the CL with Mata playing an important part in every game, including the final. Why is Mata suddenly considered a bad player? Don't people remember what the little wizard did for us?

He was our only creative spark in a broken, overaged team.

Yup. Sanchez should be and hopefully will be our summer transfer target number one.

He doesnt score alot, because thats not his job, he is the main creator for the Monaco team, if you look at the first goal for Monaco, Bernardo did pretty much everything, he went on a blistering run form the edge of his own box and left Lemar pretty much 1v1 with the keeper, but Lemar fluffed his shot, and luckily rebounded on a offside Mbappe.

Stats dont capture this kind of contribution, Lemar got the assist and Mbappe got the goal, but make no mistake, that goal only happened because of him. He had a bad second half though, but that was mainly due to Monaco not even touching the ball before he was taken off.

On ability alone, he is twice the player that Alexis is, who BTW has been in really shit form since he got put on the wings again by Wenger,which is where we would play him. And thats not even mentioning the fact that he is 29, and Bernardo is 22

Whoever comes in be it Silva or Sanchez, they wont be playing exactly out on the wings, they will be playing more centrally perhaps as 10's so to speak but will have every opportunity to because the wing backs provide the width. Thats the beauty of our formation. Silva and Sanchez would both be good options but Sanchez is a much better player at present, plus his age doesn't necessarily mean anything, Conte signed Tevez when he was older than Sanchez at Juventus and he got the best out of him, also Pirlo although that's a different player all together but the point is the same, a players age doesn't necessarily mean anything, remember when we signed Anelka as well? Im certain he was 29 at the time.
