Thanks. Also, there must be a reason why we were prepared to pay more for Rüdiger than take Manolas for less. It's clear as day to me we were never really interested in Manolas and simply exploited the situation involving him.

Maybe it happened that the timing are very close, when the Manolas deal terminated and the moment we contact Roma for Rudiger. Media have fully speculated that we're trying to hijack Manolas deal. What a genius.

They weren't loaned out.

I have an incredibly shit memory, so I might be imagining the whole thing, but didn't we loan him out to Milan? 

Anyway, if anything, Torres is an argument against the point that was being made in that he was given way too many chances because of his price tag even though he was painfully bad. 

I hope we've learned from that and would not repeat no matter the cost of the player.

Not the most convincing case. He basically said Conte needs 5 centre backs so adding Rudiger makes sense.

Ah yes, we loaned Torres eventually, but solely because he was so shit that nobody else wanted or could afford him full time. We basically sold him to Milan with delay, so doesn't really count. Rüdiger needs to be Cuadrado/Torres level shit to be loaned out, and this season it won't happen 100%.

PS Baba is another 30 million guy who was loaned out, but again it's because he was shit. All of those players were bought with first team football in mind, as will Rüdiger.

Shevchenko and torres aswell

Seems like what @Igi26 mean is that you don't spent 32m, and then immediately loan him out at the same window.

The signing overcrowds the Centre-back position without really strengthening it. 

Luiz- Azpilicueta -                       Rudiger - Christensen (unproven) -        Cahill - Zouma

don't believe we sold ake and will bring this player... older, much less talented then ake, ake already know and prove himself in the premier league, and ake could be a home grown player if i'm not wrong... so WTF is wrong with our board?

Ake has been sold to develop properly and come back one day. Rudiger has more experience and will improve us immediately it's someone that Conte wants.

Been asking myself the same thing. Maybe we gave him a week of holiday and saying goodbye, so he can come over for good at the end of the week ?

Edit:

Then again we signed Cesc in a hotel room...
