No freaking way that we spend 50mil euros on this guy. 

We can go into the next season with Kante, baka, RLC, Barkley, mount and pasalic as our options. Far better players than this guy

Kovacic was somewhat disappointing this season for sure but choosing Bakayoko over him for next season sounds disastrous. I hope the board are not THAT stupid

I imagine Lampard would make Baka surplus to requirements and have Ampadu as Kante's alternative.

Mourinho on the other hand....

Exactly. So we are ridiculing baka for him a good season in serie a but willing to buy a bang average midfielder for 50mil€ whose last good season was in that same league and who for 4 years has looked totally out of his depth. 

Fans are just strange here. 😂

also, the pound is getting smashed v the euro this month

€50m the first week of May was only around £41.8m (at BtB internal straight wire FOREX rates), at the rate it is going it will soon cost over £45m

fucking Brexit, grrrrrrrrr (well, unless you are long v the euro/GBP cross, lololol)

kovacic has tonnes of natural talent, bakayoko is a donkey. I'd rather persist with someone with the potential to be brilliant than utilise someone who is clearly garbage

In that case how are ben arfa and adel taraabt doing these days? They had "talent" too. Come on man, its been 4 years since he had a "decent" season. Not exceptional, just a decent season and people want us to spend 50mil euros on him? Seriously? Have we actually learned nothing from the baka, DD, morata fiascos. 

I cant wait for this month to end so that we can officially not buy this guy. Cant go through another couple of seasons of "he has talent", "he can dribble" etc etc that people go on and on here.

If our treasury department was smart they locked that exchange rate in with a forward or at least filled their euro accounts. But even if not, i think volatility can work in our favour here cos the amount we have to pay is fixed but the time we have to pay it is not. I expect the pound to fall till a few weeks after brexit. At some point the BAnk of England will be forced to lower rates tho and the pound will appreciate.

what IF Sarri stays? (crazy U-Turn rumours abound)

IF Sarri stays we simply must buy him, as backup to Jorginho

Ampadu has injury issues every other month it seems and needs more playing time so should be loaned out

Kovacic will sign for inter and sometime later Chelsea will manage to keep Sarri and start wondering why is Kovacic no longer available.
