I am sceptical about that. I think that 60-millions offer from Barca was once in a lifetime chance. Who would give that kind of money for a 30-yo, after this season in which he would score what, 5 goals?

There was no chance Barca would pay 60 mil for Willian. You need to stop blindly believing the media.

wow just read the news on the Chelsea official website, tbh im surprised we pulled this off so quickly, maybe our board is not that imcopetent, how much did we pay for him?
All i can say is welcome to Chelsea Football Club Pulisic, see you next season. I hope to see him shine for us soon, this is clearly a long term deal and he's still 20 years old, still a lot more room for improvement, but already a talented young player. Cheers
Dortmund wanted rid & we dealt with their demands to save some money. Not that surprising tbh

EDIT: They even officially removed Š and Ć from surname, don't know was it him or his parents. So taking that into account, he is Pulisic, therefore American butchered version is used I guess. :( 

Totally understand why they did that tho. Makes life a lot easier in the USA, by not having to deal with letters with accents. ;)

welcome to the club!!! Great to have promising youngsters in the squad. What they do an how much they play is entirely up to them. And a very good problem for the manager.

They made multiple offers, the second to last one was £60m, the last one was £65m as confirmed (with the date of the offer given as July 20th). These were confirmed by multiple reputable reporters such as Matt Law and Tom Farmery, who are hardly rumour mongers.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2018/07/23/football-transfer-news-rumours-chelsea-consider-65m-barcelona2/amp/

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5983585/Chelsea-REJECT-latest-Barcelona-bid-65m-Willian.html

Go back and look at this board history on here regarding the entire saga. You are trying to gaslight these events as somehow fake. The fact is the board fucked up yet again. You have to take into account Barca's winger situation at the time, as Dembele was deemed a bust, or near bust (madness as I said at the time) and they were feeling the pinch. Willian had been ripped by many of the Brasilian insiders to be the darkhorse star of the Seleção at the WC, and he was one of the few who played oki.

Also when we rejected that final offer, Barca immediately went out and grabbed Malcom on the cheap.

There is zero chance the Barca Willian storyline was conjured up out of thin air. For all his faults he did have a really good (press-wise) run here for years. You act like him costing £70m or so LESS than Demebele (with add-ons) is an impossibility. Napoli is demanding 150m euros for Koulibaly this coming summer and he will be only one year younger than Willian was this past summer and is CB! Remember, Luiz held the world record for CB's for several years at £50m, until Van Dijk smashed it.

A player like Pulisic always had marketing potential because it allows NBC to build their coverage of the Premier League around him rather than someone like Tim Ream.

While that is welcome,  I hope this is not a signing made from the marketing point of view and that he has been signed because Sarri likes his style of play.

Dortmunf are creaming themselves with how stupid we were to take off their deadwood and even oay 65m for it. But even if he is just average the amis will  all buy his shirt and fund this transfer. Disappointed he got loaned back tho. Really got fucked by their  negotiators.

Willian now injured and Hazard currently are only natural winger fit. The injuries are piling up. Forest, Spurs coming up in the cup before we play Newcastle in the league. We could actually really do with him now.

Very Hazardesque

 

Hahaha...glad I'm not the only one who noticed. 

His dribbling style does remind me of Hazard,...more like Hazard playing at a slower pace (not even kidding). Young Hazard was just electric.

Still, hoping for the best. Hopefully Sarri's football would have taken root by the time he gets here.

Seems like a nice guy. Lol @ the American security though .... no nosense. Haha.

 

Security agents have employers. If they allowed this, they could get fired. People only see one side of the story always. It aren't cops that can do almost anything they want and get away with it.

If they allow the one kid, and other people follow. They get sacked immediately.

It pisses me off that we have had the board sign a very young talented playe who was arguably said to be one of the worlds best under 21s and we have 'supporters' slagging him off before hes put a shirt on his back!

Its all well and good to do it with one who has had years to prove themselves yet fails miserably but c'mon guys lets give the lad a chance before we tear him to shreds.

Hes not going to do it on his own tho so unless we give him some proper goalscorers we wont be changing sod all.

Well said mate try not reading the negative posts that's what I do  some guys seems to forget Pulisic is only 20 this kid will only get better 😃😃 klopp rates him highly I rather go on his judgement about a player than read a negative post on this forum 😃😃

My thoughts too mate.

I read every post bud!

And I'm glad cause having had some text conversations on here its totally changed my mind about some things.

Example I've always thought we should only buy players who specialise in playing 1 positiion and have trained for that their entire career. Like using 1 hunting knife for a job and not use a Swiss army knife thats got many tools but not 1 made for hunting.

But after a chat on here someone suggested that in this modern game a player who can play in multi positions is better cause he can think in different ways and is multi skilled.

Pulisic is good, young and potential but...

We need a goalscorer. We have too much Mr."no goal"( Jorginho, Willian, Azpilicueta, Morata), Hazard is not goalscorer, he has never 20 goals in a season for Chelsea. We need Lozano more than Pulisic. 

Btw, welcome to Chelsea.

Doesn't this speak volumes about the way our board works

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri makes startling confession that he had no idea £58m winger Christian Pulisic was going to sign for Blues

Maurizio Sarri was asked by club about his opinion of Christian Pulisic last month

He gave 'positive' response but heard no more about progression of deal 

Chelsea boss was caught unaware when American was announced 

Incredibly, Sarri admitted: 'I didn’t know anything about Pulisic on Tuesday'

Chelsea's signing of United States international Christian Pulisic could open the door to further business opportunities in North America for the club, according to Raphael Honigstein.

Lets just hope 'the club' realises that the better we are as a team the more business we will do!
