Good for Liverpool, about time they got their defence sorted out. Also good for the fact that ManC will once again fail to sign a truly world class centre-back and they'll probably be forced to pay ridiculous sums of money for a 2nd tier player. We've got Christensen and Ake so I am not worried in the slightest.

Even Liverpool are outspending us now. Pathetic board, if this happens to be true and Liverpool pay 60 mil for him.

Don't.

People on here pretending to be calm will call you a melt.

I don't even care anymore at this point after those disastrous summers of 15 and 16. 

 

If the board fails to deliver, Conte will walk like he did at Juventus.

Van Dijk CHOSE Liverpool, it has nothing to do with how much was bid.

You kids need to settle down a bit

Lol, of course he choose Liverpool since they offered him 200k a week. Fact is they have less revenue, less money won in the league, less money from players sold, yet somehow have no problem paying a CB 200k a week. Meanwhile, we complain we have not enough money to compete with the Manchester clubs, amazing how Liverpool can.

you're talking pure garbage...

If Liverpool offered him 200k a week he becomes their highest paid player. If Chelsea were to do that we'd have to restructure our entire wage bill, only Hazard is making 200k currently and there are others who are deserving of that and more.

Stick to football manager, the real thing is out of your league.

So he becomes Liverpool highest paid player, which means they'd have to restructure (like you point out) yet if Chelsea offered that he would be on par with ANOTHER player. Yeah makes sense..

 

Also instead of telling someone to mind his own business about something since I apparently don't know shit, you'd better learn to accept to disagree. As far as I'm concerned the wage restructure is blindly overrated by some of you , since a club like Liverpool have no problem making a CB their highest paid player. Also I think Coutinho earns as much as him or close.

we are currently sorting out deals for current players such as Courtois, Hazard and Costa, how many players do you expect us to have on 200k a week? It sets a bad precedence.... If we give Van Dijk more than twice the amount Cahill makes it makes negotiating other deals extremely difficult. I think you underestimate the importance of keeping your wage bill in check especially when we have many areas to strengthen.

Maybe I am exaggerating, I'm only a football and Chelsea enthusiast what exactly do I know  but watching a club like Liverpool having no problem signing a player from Southampton and immediately giving him 200k hurts, especially since I rate VVD very highly. Liverpool are quite a long shot below us in revenue but I was reading somewhere they are leading the wages in the league.

That model is not sustainable. Just look at the amount of trophies we've won compared to them in the past 10-15 years.

Missing out on overpriced players isn't the end of the world. I am still calm and trust the board, its not late August is it? I mean missing out on £50 million Stones wasn't a bad thing after all. We have Christensen who has so much potential and is ready to prove himself at Chelsea, but there are people who want to have a decent at best defender to be our most expensive signing ever, I don't get it. We need good attackers or a new right wing back, but a CB shouldn't be our priority.

Look guys I will throw a simple example; 

I couldnt care less if City signs Mendy tomorrow, and we wait till last day of window to get Sandro. I couldnt care less if Pool gets Dijk tomorrow and we get I dunno, Laporte in mid august.

As long we get the players we actualy want. If we wanted Dijk and he ends up elsewhere, thats a problem. If we want Sandro and he decides to stay, and all other options like Mendy have already moved, thats a problem.

BUT today is 5th June and it would be great if everybody just calm the fuck down and see who we sign in next three months. There will be enough time for panic by the end of window if we dont get anyone by 25th august. 

Also just because City or Pool is already buying, it doesnt mean they are buying the best options of entire summer. They are simply buying available players who have been rumoured to leave the clubs for months now. Overpaying just so they can get their hands on. I hope we are actualy targeting players Conte wants and will fit this team in best possible way, which requires some thinking. On paper good players mean shit, just look at Gundogan and Pogba. Its all about chemistry and manager.

Like they say, great things dont come easy.

Great post. As long as Conte gets his first choice targets I'll be happy.

I do kind of hope we make at least 1 big signing early in the summer just to build a bit of buzz and set the tone. The fans will be elated if we send our rivals a statement of intent with a huge, star signing.

Showed very good form in the first half of the season and is a good age to become a mainstay at a club for many years. However he is coming off the back of a serious injury which has ruled him out for months and, with the greatest respect to Celtic, he has yet to be tested at the highest level with all the pressures that come with it. £60m is ridiculous money and I'm glad we're not paying that for him.

Buying anything now in England seems near pointless with all the money all the clubs have, they can quote prices on players that are laughable. It's also why I worry about us going for Lukaku, I can see us getting our fingers burnt with that.
