It is. I can see Napoli sell Albiol to Valencia en take Mangala as his replacement. Or they won't even sell both K2 and Albiol.

I don't know. I just don't see them sell Koulibaly anymore.

Isn't Albiol's agent said couple of days ago that no way Albiol will leave Napoli?

I heard the Koulibaly will play football in a team this season #CFC

Jesus, this forum makes me want to barf at times. A reliable source reports we've made contacts. No reaction.   Shit source says EVERTON will outbid us for him and everyone starts moaning. Y

You should turn off your bluetooth you will conserve more battery power.

Mangala should be going for atleast 40mil euro considering how much city paid for him. This could be good news.

Probably only about £20m

Chelsea now on Romagnoli and Maksimovic. Koulibaly chase over. Romagnoli now priority. (@dimarzio)

Not just stones saga but the same thing happened with Rooney, chased till we signed stop gap. Then before that I remember the modric saga, chased till end up with meireles. 

Time after time these people don't learn and still keep their jobs. While they fire managers for their incompetents.

what the hell are you on about?

There are only a small handful of players who can help us, if those players aren't available what are we to do?

And yet those players moved very easily the following season. Stones, modric. 

And we have nothing.

Yes they were allowed to leave their teams the season after... What's your point?

So sick of this saga. Even as someone who badly wanted us to sign Koulibaly I think we should just move on and get Maksimovic.

Probably half the price, extremely comfortable and progressive on the ball, very mobile, and much less risk of being a bust. Maksimovic partnered with Zouma is a huge upgrade on what we have. Maybe he'd even allow us to play a back 3, who knows.

You kids need to stop whining and complaining about not signing players. If the clubs don't want to sell what else is the club supposed to do? Some of you say move on, move onto what? Jonny Evans?? Mustafi?? 

There just isn't a lot of value for your dollar on the market and overspending for secondary targets makes little to no sense since it won't improve our current situation... New shiny toys aren't always better than the old ones.

I think we may eventually go to a back 3, or any big singing now may become redundant when Christensen comes back.

If that's the case, Koulibaly made sense.  A big physical presence who's comfortable carrying the ball out of the back.  Christensen (by all accounts of what I've read) is an excellent passer from the back to start moves.  Add in Zouma, and it feels a little like a back 3 in the mould of BBC.

You sound like that deluded Arsenal fan TY from ArsenalFanTV. The fact is that we are becoming a team like Arsenal because we get rejected by everyone. Couldn't sign Pogba last season, he is now in Manchester. Couldn't buy Stones, he is in Manchester too. And who knows now. We will go to our 2nd target after Kalidou, then 3rd and after all we will end up with Papy??? Conte clearly said he wants 3 new signings earlier and the board must listen to the coach. Who are you gonna blame later if we are in trouble? You are gonna say Conte didn't get new defenders?

I think Conte would like to go to a back 3 next year as well. I view whoever we sign(hopefully) as a complementary piece to Zouma and Christensen. We already have the big athletic barzagli type (Zouma) and a skillful Bonucci style passer(Christensen, still needs to prove ALOT but has the mould) Next we need the marauding chiellini type. K2 fits the description as does Maksimovic, I dont think we are going to be able to pry Romanogli from AC Milan no matter the price. I just hope we can close one of the signings or at least lay the ground work for a January purchase. I really like the idea of a 3 4 3 next year with our players.

Hilarity... I sound like an Arsenal fan? Do you even think about what you're saying before you type it? Everything you've said screams of a deluded Arsenal fan who thinks every player is available to them for whatever price they deem fit. Yes we couldn't sign Pogba for 100m which is a world record fee!!! BIG DEAL... Yes we didn't want to pay a WORLD RECORD FEE for a defender who was fucking shit last year!!! 

Conte wants QUALITY but not at any cost, have you been listening to what he's been saying throughout this process? You sound like what you want is anyone which is precisely what Conte is preaching against. There aren't a lot of players out there who can help us and the ones who can play for teams who also have ambitions to achieve something this year. 

This isn't football manager, its not a matter of just auto switching any player onto your team. We had bids put in for Rudiger and he got injured, we then went in for Koulibaly and its proving difficult since Napoli can't find a replacement. How many defenders do you think are available that are actually good?

Noo. Not like you are an Arsenal fan lol but you are defending the board just like that guy does. The thing is we are not living in 2005 or 2010 now. Even WBA are asking 25m for Evans, for EVANS! Everyone cost more now than they did before but this is why we are getting way more money from sponsors, from TV, etc. which means we have more money to spend. We are not gonna find world class players for 20-30m these days.

Anyways... I don't see the point of carrying on this childish debate with you.

Its about paying that sort of money for the right player not any player... I think that's what everyone understands as being the way to go about it. You don't spend over the odds for mediocre players.
