Marcelo Brozovic

I think some people are still suffering from the traumatic experiences from our last few signings under Mourinho so much that they disregard any player they have never heard of or watched before. Brozovic would easily start in our current midfield. Knowing Conte from his Juventus and Italy days, Antonio loves proper box to box mids, players who can hold their own when defending but also contribute a lot offensively. Brozovic is exactly that type of player and I can easily see why Conte thinks we need a player like him. 

We need a player like Brozovic. Matic is looking completely out of his depth playing the box to box role and it's down to him not being able to provide the attacking qualities that's needed from a player in this role. The role he should be playing in is occupied by a far superior player in Kante. 

It's pretty clear what Conte is trying to do with the midfield. A destroyer in Kante who is also very good at passing the ball will be the one sitting deep and two box to box mids (Oscar and Brozovic) with Brozovic being the more defensive of the two. I think Nainggolan would be his ideal choice but that ship has probably long sailed by now. 

This is a Conte signing. Let's trust our coach and his ideas. He has earned that through his work with Italy and Juventus and also the promise we've showed so far not in terms of results but most importantly the way we've played and improved in every aspect.

If the ones saying he's not good enough watched him week in week out then fair enough. But those that are slagging this transfer, how many times have they seen him play? There are always some that seems to know about all players we're linked with, try hard to sound smart on the internet and misleading people.

I honestly have only seen him play for Croatia since I don't have time to watch non Chelsea matches, so I really don't know much about him.

There's a reason why Paul Pogba is considered to one of the best midfielders in the world right now. The reason is Antonio Conte. 

He brought him to Juventus for absolutely nothing, when SAF found him surplus to requirements. It was Conte that gave Pogba the platform and developed him into the world class player that he is today. 

Also, why are people so quick to forget about Arturo Vidal? He is a workhorse and him and Pogba were the X factors for Conte!

People are too soon to criticise anyone that they don't know. They go to websites like Whoscored.com and see how many times he has played, how many times he has played for his country, how many goals that the player has scored etc and make firm judgements based on these numbers about the player.

Honestly, I would rather trust Conte here, than go on and make judgements based on numbers on websites. These only tell how the player has played in the past, with numbers to support them. 

If he wants Brozovic, back him up!

Its this logic that infuriates me, this idea that Chelsea should only sign world class players even if the role is for the bench... What the hell are you talking about? So because Milan, who play a completely different style to the one we employ here, doesn't have a need for Brozovic now all of a sudden that means we shouldn't have any use for him as a squad player? Lol.

Conte is about building squads under a philosophy, not trying to assemble an allstar team full of prima donnas. You assemble a squad by getting players who you envision doing a job for you in certain conditions. I have no doubt Conte knows what Brozovic's strengths and weaknesses are and how he can help us this season. I think what's happened to most of you here is you've fallen in love with FM and FIFA and also the idea of buying every world star regardless of whether or not we have a need for them.

Take a look back to just this past summer when Conte went against everyone's "better judgment" and took 31 yr old Giaccherini with him to the Euros and inserted him into the starting XI. The point I'm making is Conte has a better understanding of how he wants to play football than you do or anyone else. What I would advise you and the rest who seem so hell bent on criticizing his choices to do is wait till the process plays out first before you say something silly and end up with egg on your face.

Conte knows football and has a philosophy that he is confident in employing here. Let the manager manage and save the ridicule till its been implemented and failed.

I'm sorry, "world class"?

What we are debating is whether or not he is a decent enough player to add anything to the team, even as a squad player. I don't think he is.

If Conte needed an average central midfielder in the squad he could have given a chance to Pasalic who showed some glimpses at Monaco or even given another chance for MVG instead of paying 25m for someone who is not far ahead of either. I even thought that the plan was to give a chance to one of our own in Chalobah.

'Conte knows best' is not really an argument. Great that you trust him, but I'm here debate my and other members opinions and that's not an argument that's just a deflection tactic.

Never heard of him before we was linked, never seen him play but midfield we seem quite stacked. Would rather stick with what we have and push RLC and Chalobah.

Saying that, happy to be proved wrong IF he comes in and proves if worth but id rather swerve this one

How much have you seen him play? 

Granted I haven't seen a lot, only got to know about him before the Euros started and then saw him a bit in the Euros. 

As for the Inter fans, they really like him. I am interested in knowing what's your assessment for the player since you think he wouldn't add anything to the team

Debate what though? You are calling him a useless footballer based on the fact that he can't play or better yet because Milan don't have a use for him... Lol. Remember the other Milan that had no use for Pirlo?

And what sort of debate do you expect to have when your only contribution is,

Brozovic can't get into the XI of a mid-table team in the fucking Serie A. This is the kind of signing teams like Sunderland make, not a team aiming for a top four finish! 

What sort of debate entry is that? You ever heard of the saying one mans junk is another mans treasure? Conte clearly knows the player and if we're in for him it has more to do with his input than anything else.

And of course he has value! He was an integral player for a Croatian team that were playing some of the best football at the Euros. He was a mainstay in that side... 

As for Brozovic not being good enough for Milan, what makes you think its Milan that doesn't want him? It could very well be he is tired of playing for a squad that aren't progressing and aren't meeting his wage demands.

I watch the Serie A weekly being a Juve supporter. Obviously I don't watch all Inter matches but I've probably seen him more than most on here. 

To me this is like us being linked with say Claudio Yacob. Sure, he can be a decent player and has even played for Argentina, but it makes less than zero sense for him to be linked with us. He's just not at the level required to make a move to Chelsea.

No, that's literally a different Milan! 

You do know he plays for Inter not AC, right? Please tell me you're not making all this fuss and you don't even know what club he plays for?

 

Listen mate, it's really a simple argument that stands true 99.99999999999% of the time: It is incredibly unlikely that bench-warmers from mid-table teams can improve our squad. I can't think of a single bench player from any mid-table EPL team that I'd like to see us sign, certainly not for 25m. Can you? And that is certainly true for Serie A teams as well.

FFS the guy is playing second-fiddle to Gary Medel and we are bidding 25 million for him!

Enjoying reading your posts on this one @Chelsea Legend 11 I haven't watched anywhere near enough of him to comment so I am very blank on this player.

My reason for defending him is I like squads. I'm not a fan of teams that hoard all the world talent to sell shirts. I like squads that work hard and understand their role in the team. To me, Brozovic suits the style we're trying to incorporate here. More than Cuadrado and possibly even Pedro. He's a wide midfielder who can be deployed in multiple roles on ride side of the pitch.

lol... Ya I realized I said that and changed its early over here. Still Milan nonetheless.

There is no rule of thumb when it come to football and even less when you're talking about a squad that just finished 10th domestically. And while I get your sentiment about not wanting to pay 25m for a bench player of a midtable team, didn't Brozovic make 35 appearances for Inter last year as a 22yr old on a loan deal with the option to buy? Wasn't 85% of those appearances starts? I don't think the argument is that simple as I don't paint by numbers. There are hundreds of examples where a player doesn't work out for one team(and that's not what I'm saying in his case since from what I've read so far has more to do with contract stalls and FFP than it does his footballing suitability) and ends up being gold of another. 

And aren't you now exposing yourself a bit now? Medel? He's a defensive mid, Brozovic is more box to box

I have been reading what Inter fans/ Seire A experts think of him, the general consensus is that he's an incredible player on his day, just that he's also incredibly inconsistent. it kind of reminds me when Inter sold Countinho to Liverpool, majority of Seire A fans were laughing that L'pool spent £8.5 million on him.. look at how that turned out. Inter fans talk about his 'mentality', not about his technique or workrate, if Conte believes he can get the best out of him then i'm all for it.

Also lets not forget Juventus wanted him this summer, the only reason he's not playing in the black and white strip is because Inter didn't want to sell to another Italian club, he must not be that bad afterall if Juve were after him...
