Looks like the club is choosing to remain on the whole Costa situation, probably cooling off rumours and trying to get the price back up by stating to potential buyers that solutions have been found and that we aren't in the need of solding him anymore.

Really wouldn't be surprised if we end up keeping him after all, it still can be resolved at the start of pre-season if it stays this way.

Regarding budget I think we could go as far as 70-80M£ net spend this summer, probably reaching some 150M£ in buys, Bertrand, Cuadrado and a couple loanees sold could cover some of our spend I reckon.

Then again everybody's still confused about our priorities going into the summer, we have been linked to players in every position besides the main GK spot, as it looks like we amready have Caballero deal sealed for the backup.

Still just guessing games but I think we will go for a striker, a midfielder or two, potentially a full/wing-back and get Christensen back if we can't manage to get Manolas, Koulibaly or even De Vrij ( although there hasn't neen many rumors about him of late ).

Still repeating that Caballero Bakayoko Christensen Sandro and Morata is a pretty decent window, almost doubling up the main spots in the squad, if we do sell Costa then it is probably Michy staying for the backup.

Let's wait until the end of the first week of July beforr starting to panic.

BREAKING NEWS: Liverpool and Dortmund have reached an agreement over the transfer of Reus. They've agreed it's never going to happen. [emoji23]

It reminds me the day when we signed Hector and Djilobodji on the same day.

David Moyes is that ugly bloke at the nightclub who gets to 2am and just tries chatting up every girl. Take a hint dude - no-one likes you.

Nice team, but Luiz on right side is not option, and I wouldnt mind simply keeping Pedro instead of James, unless we have 70m too much in the bank. There will be better options to improve that RW in future (if we change the formation, then maybe James would fit nicely tho).

Right side? thats the left.

I agree :) I wouldn't mind Pedro, Willian and maybe Musonda or Boga alongside for next season. We have some other "issues" to sort out first ... right winger would be just a luxury buy atm ;) 

Traore would fit perfectly on that right side IMO but he is 99% leaving as it seems :(

If Cahill can play there why can't Luiz, who's probably the best technical CB in the world?

Because in the middle, he has some backup, on sides he doesnt. He has been brilliant this season, but he is still not the most reliable CB per se. 

He is good technical, his attacking side was never a question. Its the defending. 

And for a ball playing CB, middle of back three is best spot. 

Obviously Terry is not best anymore, but when Luiz was moved to left side to give Terry spot in middle, he was much less comfortable than usualy.

That's a fair assessment but maybe he just needs more games there. I wouldn't mind trying it. Christensen could play there instead too.

When the situation demands/permits both Gaz and Azpi play really high. Say within 10 metres of the opposition area. For me this has been one of, if not the most, impressive features of Antonio's system. Dave in particular has come up with some really threatening deliveries from that area. A left footed CB, or at least one comfortable with his left peg, would multiply the threat we pose in those situations.

Not sure this is the right place to discuss about formation, haha. Not sure Alves rumour is true. Sandro, Lukaku, James and Bakayoko seems more likely. I know Conte don't fancy 433 formation, but with all the signing there, we could perfectly play that formation with better luck now.

 

Courtois

Azpi  Cahill/Christensen  Christensen/Luiz  Sandro

Cesc  Kante  Bakayoko

James  Lukaku  Hazard

You'd start Cahill over Luiz????

Perfect window for me that's quite realistic?

Lukaku, Bakayoko, Sandro, James, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Caballero. 

Similar to mine - Caballero, Lukaku, Bakayoko, James, Alex Sandro and a new CB (preferably Koulibaly, Van Dijk or any other TOP CB). Christensen back will feel like a new transfer.

Now let's put it this way - winter transfer window Chelsea have sold Oscar (60m) and Bamford (6m) without getting any player in. That's 66m.

In the last weeks we've seen Cuadrado (17m), Begovic (10m), Atsu (6m) go with Bertrand Traore's transfer to Lyon (17m) to be confirmed soon. That's another 50m.

In total £116m on bench/loaned players.

That wishlist is of course worth close to £250m, but if the club can't add an extra £120-130m on top of that £116m (that's basically easy money coming from unwanted players) then I don't know what to think...

And to be honest, £120-130m in today's market is a pretty decent amount for a big club like Chelsea considering United and City are going to spend close to £250m from their own pocket without selling much. And that amount (£120-130m) could easily go down to close to £100m should some of Remy, Van Ginkel, Baba Rahman, Kalas, Omeruo, Piazon, Hector are sold, too.

Belotti & Nainggolan in place of the first two and I would be more than happy. AOC seems the most unlikely with Wenger staying put.

At least £10m from Solanke too. Since it looks like Diego is off too (50-60m?), we don't even have to spend over £100m net to get something like that...

The £10m we've asked the tribunal to assess as the compensation for Dom is just an opening gambit. Doubt they will set the fee that high. Liverpool will certainly be arguing that it should be lower and the tribunal will probably settle on an amount somewhere in between.
