It's strange to think that Germany have produced lots of talented, technical attacking players over the last decade but none of them scream consistency or have been consistent. Draxler, Gotze, Brandt and even Reus to name a few. It's almost as if the mental side of the game has been forgoed. 

Reus's problems were always injuries, he is an insane talent, crazy good player

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard pulls plug on Wilfried Zaha transfer over dressing room concern

https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/1223726/Chelsea-transfer-news-Wilfried-Zaha-deal-snub-Frank-Lampard-dressing-room-gossip-update

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has pulled the plug on a transfer for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha. The Blues manager has cooled on the Ivory Coast international because of his extortionate wage demands.

Zaha is said to want a whopping £200,000-a-week to move to Stamford Bridge but there are concerns at how that would go down in the dressing room. Only two players currently in the first-team at Chelsea earn sums in that region – something Lampard is keen not to disrupt.

Transfer expert Ian McGarry also believes it could impact ongoing contract negotiations with the likes of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount if Zaha was paid the huge wages. He told Reach PLC’s Transfer Window Podcast: “They also had an interest in Crystal Palace’s left-sided attacking midfielder Wilfried Zaha, similar kind of player but 28. “I’m told that the wages Zaha is asking for Chelsea believe would upset their dressing room. “He wants in excess of £200,000-a-week. Currently there are only two players on that money at Chelsea which you may find surprising.

Ian McGarry has a history of talking BS and seemed to be the case here as well when he doesn't know that Mount has already signed a new contract.

he just said this too

 

https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/1223788/Jadon-Sancho-Chelsea-transfer-decision-made-Frank-Lampard-Dortmund-latest-news-gossip

Transfer expert Ian McGarry claims Dortmund demanded £103million for Sancho.

And he believes there would be an additional £42.6m which would go to the winger’s agent making it a huge outlay for Chelsea.

Sancho has also been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United in recent weeks with his Dortmund career seemingly coming to an end.

IF true

zero chance we dump out £145m (and if the pound goes down versus the euro it could quickly move to over £150m)

for him, hell no

fucking criminal cunt agents

Emeka Obasi <<<< his agent (Elite Project Group LTD)

But Zidane aint going to drop Karim who is on on fine form anytime soon...

Doesn't mean they're just going to let him go and leave themselves short on option. Also, if Jovic is part of their long term plan, what good does it do if he is loaned out after just 6 months when he's probably better off staying, trying to settle in etc?

Anyway I would rather we wait till summer and go all out for Werner or Dembele and Sancho when they will available for transfer than sign mediocre players now that will add up the long list of shambolic players in our squad...All our other alternatives with few exception have mediocrity written over them...

But our attack and defense scream for urgent help...

that's a deal killer

Regarding Nathan Ake, it sort of makes sense that we haven't rushed in to activate the buy-back clause. Is he a very solid, modern CB who would improve the squad? Yes. But is he clearly better than what we already have? That I'm not so sure about. Having thought about it more, I'm wondering whose place he would even take? His skill set and ability are pretty much the same as Tomori's.

Doesn't it feel like any CB we target should be a dramatic upgrade? Trouble is, there aren't many VVD's or Harry Maguire's out there. We need that sort of player who is physically dominant and can command the defense but is also great with the ball. Zouma has the first part but is an accident waiting to happen anywhere near the ball.

Other than Koulibaly I'm not even familiar with who the current hot properties are in the CB market.

My concern about the Ake situation is why we have not decided whether to buy him back or not. If the latest reports are to be believed, it still seems like we're dilly-dallying over it. Either get him now, ASAP when we have some free weeks coming up so that he can settle in etc or just decide 'no' and we move on.

might be, I guess we see what happens in the summer

unless we end up buying Zaha (if we do that will mean dozens of articles were talking a different line of bullshit)

and even then, someone will buy him, so we find out that way

Yeah, you would think that if we were keen we'd have already moved. Maybe waiting on his injury?

I know it's kind of petty to sign players simply to stop your rivals from doing so, but maybe we should just snatch him up before Arse or City do. He'd be a dramatic improvement at Arse and could be a long term partner for Laporte at City.

Harry Maguire is staggeringly overrated

the best CB's on the planet atm IMHO (this does not mean they are available as of now or that we should try and buy them, for example, Koulibaly is too old for the monet Napoli want, it is madness to pay £100m for one full season under 30yo)

1 VVD

2 Raphaël Varane

3 Kalidou Koulibaly

4 Aymeric Laporte (when healthy)

5 Milan Skriniar

6 José Giménez  

7 Marquinhos

8 Alessio Romagnoli  

9  Ibrahima Konaté (when healthy)

10 Matthijs de Ligt (has fallen off a bit, I expect him to rise again as some age off)

11 Lucas Hernández   

12 Rúben Dias

13 Clément Lenglet

14 Dayot Upamecano  

15 Antonio Rüdiger  

16 Caglar Söyüncü  

17  Stefan de Vrij  

18 Harry Maguire

19 Diego Carlos

20  Éder Militão

21 Gerard Piqué (age)

22 Niklas Süle

23 Benjamin Pavard

24 Iñigo Martínez

25 Diego Godin (age)

26 Joel Matip

27 Yeray Álvarez

28 Nico Elvedi

29 Samuel Umtiti (when healthy)

30  Konstantinos Manolas

Chelsea are cooling their interest in Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho because Frank Lampard believes bringing in a new striker is more important. (Times)

 

expected :D  maybe Zaha for  €75.00m and £180,000  per week
