Lol I have nothing against 30+ year old players I just don't like chelsea paying over the odds for them just I would even take Llorente for are bench 

I'm with ya and agree in general. But theres always an exception to the rule. And with the physios and fitness levels these guys reach now theres some really fit lads in their 30s.

£25.6m is a bargain for him

Excellent player, but why leave Juve?

my thoughts exactly, that is why i just assumed it was never possible and solely available in my dreams. We shall see how this progresses, would be a world class signing.

Alex Sandro could play his final game for Juventus in the CL final as #Chelsea prepare an opening bid for the full-back. [La Repubblica]

Juventus themselves have admitted that they will find it very difficult to keep Alex Sandro beyond the summer. [La Repubblica]

Linked with Sandro and Jordi Alba as far as fullbacks are concerned in the last couple of days. The sources are complete shit, sadly, but those would be two unbelievable signings.

Unless Conte suddenly decided that Alonso should be dropped for some reason, I don't think this is gonna happen.

If we get Sandro its a true signal of intent... These are the types of rumours I want to see more of not the "Corentin Tolisso" or "Andrea Conti" links I've been seeing.

We need to go big and acquire world class talent not just good talent like Bakayoko

Not dropped but certainly rotated, huge slate of games next year (hopefully) can't have only one option for one of the most grueling positions on the field.

Possibly, but don't think it is the most important area we need to strengthened at the moment, as Alonso did a very good job there. Personally, I prefer one of our youngster for a backup of that position.

I agree, I think he did a very good job also i was always one of his defenders. But every spot needs competition in my mind.

also what youngster did you have in mind that could fill that particular role?

Don't think we need two first team player in every position, we could filled some with our youths and it is still fine. As I mentioned earlier, it is just not an area we urgently need to be strengthened in my opinion, so we will gonna have to wait if this rumour is true or not.

Baba or Kenedy or Ake should be enough for a backup.

I disagree in that I think it is an area we urgently need competition. It is physically grueling. Baba coming off an ACL tear as backup for a team trying to challenge for PL and CL titles? I don't think so. Also I had high hopes for Kenedy but he doesnt have the necessary defensive skills and I also don't think Conte trusts him.

I agree we should use our youth as squad players and eventually important players when they are ready but in my opinion we don't have any available to fill such an integral role. I really want Lew Baker to come back and challenge fabregas and Christensen to come back and earn a place.
