Think we will only even think about going for him(probly too late!)if Willian goes , no wc worries for him , deal should have been done n dusted , ffs 50/60 mill for willian would have helped that out grrr board grrr willian grrrr sticky nights!

Last I saw we had dropped Willis price to £44mill after Barca got Malcom - £36.5 ffs! They aint daft.

From the Independent (Wasn't sure if it was OK to post this link as I was told only to  post the truth. But there would be no fuckin links unless  from CFC)

Chelsea are getting Sarri-ous 

Chelsea may have to replenish their wide options as they adapt to Maurizio Sarri's new 4-3-3 system, and according to the Evening Standard they are battling with Roma for Leon Bailey. 

The Bayer Leverkusen winger enjoyed a magnificent breakthrough season in the Bundesliga last term, with nine goals and six assists. 

The 20-year-old was born in Jamaica, and contrary to reports before the World Cup he is not eligible to play for England. 

Bailey's grandparents had British passports but did not live in England, so he does not pass the residency requirements to play for the national team. 

Current Chelsea wide man Willian was subject to a bid from Barcelona, but that moves looks dead in the water after they signed Malcom from under the noses of Roma - hence the interest in Bailey from the Italians. 

It could be a busy close to the window for the FA Cup winners, with The Independent reporting that they are keeping tabs on highly-rated Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. 

Chelsea have already started to re-shape their midfield with the addition of Jorginho from Napoli, with N'Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas likely to flank him. 

Sarri will be fully aware of Milinkovic-Savic's abilities from his time in Serie A. The Serbian international was a target for Manchester United last summer.

That's just not a way you should go about judging talent...

Yeah... I wonder if you would say the same about Sterling who happened to be born in Jamaica

Decent?  That would be massive.

Honestly if we got a CB, Bailey and Milinkovic-Savic as well as shifting possibly 3 players (Bakayoko, Drinkwater and Cahill) I would say that is a decent window all things considered. If Courtois leaves okay he will need replaced too but nothing is certain yet.

Assuming you mean Rugani or Caldara for CB, then you are looking at around £220 to £230m for those those 3.

Add a good goalkeeper in you are at £260 to £270m. (£40m would get Strakosha or Cillessen, the ONLY two decent keeper left who are remotely available)

MAX we get for Willian is £65m

max we get for Courtois is £35m,

max for Cahill is £20m (I am dreaming)

that leaves us £140m to £150m short

IF we sell both Drinkwater and Bakayoko, thats £65m MAX

We are not selling anyone else I fear, and ZERO chance Granny drops an additional £75 to £85m new spending net. 

PLUS

your calculation left us MORATA as striker still:(

I rather sign Bailey than Pulisic

I doubt either are going to happen, Willian sure sounds like he is staying.

Willian insists he is happy at Chelsea as Manchester United are dealt blow in pursuit of £65m star
A reunion with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford has long been mooted but Willian has insisted he is happy at Stamford Bridge

Big money for Bailey

Bayer Leverkusen have told Chelsea to “forget about signing Leon Bailey this summer”, claims talkSPORT.

The Jamaican winger has taken Germany by storm since joining from Genk in January last year and according to talkSPORT the Blues “have been keeping tabs on the 20-year-old over the last few months”.

An offer is pending from both Chelsea and Roma, according to reports in Germany, but Leverkusen have “categorically ruled out” any sale this summer.

Will that deter Chelsea? Probably not, with talkSPORT claiming that “a bid of around £45m could reportedly tempt Bayer into changing their stance”.

These phrases are the new template for any media scroats making an article about us.

Thats what im saying, if we won't go for him now he's under 50mil, then we won't get him again because his value will surely rise(double) once a big team signs him.

Bailey isn't better than what we already have. 

Tosh.

His upside is also massive. Willian has nothing but downside from here on out. Willian will slow down play in Sarriball, Bailey is a speed burner and a great finisher already, plus he can play either wing.

What RWers who are even remotely available do you rate over Willian?

 

I would take any of these (some more than others) over him

Ousmane Dembélé

Leon Bailey

Federico Chiesa

Christian Pulisic

Federico Bernardeschi

Suso

Iñaki Williams (tough pull, he loves Bilbao)

Florian Thauvin (has exploded in quality of play the last 2 years, 26 goals last year for Marseille)

Wilfried Zaha

Wild card Thomas Müller (Bayern may sell him, and he is maybe not the best for our style of play, so wouldnt be my first choice, but if he ever went back to form of 2 years ago and before, he is a monster)

We're interested in Zaha apparently, but not sold on any of the others. Only reason Baily would be useful is because he is left footed. The rest of those players' stats aren't anything special. Willian's workrate and defensive duties have been important for us. He has contributed more to tracking back than others, and he's been in a more defensive style for a few seasons now. We haven't seen the best of Willian because he plays on the RW as a right footed player (which limits his ability a lot) and due to playing for defensive managers like Conte and Mourinho. I am very intrigued to see what he can offer with Sarri in charge. Baily may be a future prospect, but he's not better than Willian at the moment.

We just have a vast difference in footballer evaluation then. I would take almost ever one of those in a flash over Willian right now, plus he is 30 and the drop off will start coming in a year or two. His re-sale value will plummet after this window as well. We are stuck with him I fear, and we can revisit this in January, to see how my alternatives stack up against Willian at that time. I hope, for our sake, he comes good in a massive way. I am not at all convinced he will. I think Pedro is going to end up the overall starter.

Willian isnt all that bad. People need to stop underrating our players. 

What those players have over Willian is potential, but hardly anyone is actualy already better. They are, like Willian inconsistent due to age and their best game isnt better compared to best game by Willian.

But the cash for Willian (60m) is too good to turn down for a 30yo. And he slapped himself with Conte jibe.

Still, out of those mentioned, I would only take Bailey or Chiesa. 

Pulisic isnt worth reported 70m, Bernardeschi and Inaki are talented, but they never actualy delivered yet. They are nowhere near ready to just replace Willian in our first 11 and give impact. 

Meanwhile Suso and Thauvin are hardly talents anymore IMO. Neither is good enough for elite club. Thauvin is also one big cunt, I wouldnt have him anywhere near this club.

Bailey is a real baller though and CFC fan. He has mentality, is eager to improve and made huge jump last year. Has also all physical qualities for PL. Chiesa not so much, but his ball control is amazing
