Wicked player -good news if he arrives...

,,,meanwhile Marina is trying to send a fax to Roberto Carlos.

Was this after she sent a carrier pigeon to Maradona?

She is about as useful as a glass hammer.

Can we all not celebrate just for one day that Kovacic will be with us this season. Lets not forget who our other options were. His future will sort itself out, but what we do know is that in the arms race that is this seasons premier league Chelsea added 2 big guns today.

I could def agree with that if there is indeed an option to buy, otherwise sorry... no can do.

We are not getting Luka Modric, but the aspiring player who hasn't got a game last season and that's the reason he wants out. I'm sure he's a good player, but he wasn't the starter for a reason.

So, for us to be signing him on loan, there must be an option to buy. Otherwise we would just be improving a player for RM to use later when and if he's at his best.

In other words, without an option to buy, we should have been looking at other targets as long-term replacements for fabregas.

Having Hazard and Kovačić in team means having 2 of 5 top dribblers in the world. (Isco, Messi,...)

Two best midfielders that changed teams this summer in Europe are Jorginho and Kovacic. And we've got both of them. Talk about rebuilding that midfield!

Haha true! But I'm very confident this deal is done

I'm just praying to god that there is an obligation to buy clause in the contract.

Everyone is talking about goalscoring midfielders but honestly look at Madrid or Barca’s MF? Xavi Iniesta Busquets never scored more than 10 plus goals but were an excellent trio. Modric Casemiro and Kroos the same.

Ronaldo and Messi, also Suarez, Neymar, Bale, Benzema. They don't need goalscoring midfielders, they always have had killers up top.

True but again. Hazard can be greedier, Willian can be, Pedro can be. Our problem is our wingers just don’t have that ruthlessness or selfishness to go and shoot when an opportunity presents itself inside the box or just outside instead they always look for another pass to basically walk it in the net and have done for years. That’s potentially for me, 5 more goals each of them over the course of a season. Seems a bit far fetched but over 30-40 games not really. Plus if Morata had scored a lot of those clear chances say at least another 5 on his total. So take all their numbers last season add 5 more on each we probably would have gotten results and probably gotten top 4. It’s not as black and white as that I know but that would be 20 more goals between the 4 of them. How many matches that were draws or losses would of been wins or draws because of that? A few I’d imagine.

Could, should, would. Doesn't matter, they aren't. Unless Sarri does to them what he did to Mertens (only Hazard has that potential imo).

It’s a mixed bag. We created chances under Conte but when we get going properly under Sarri it will be different. I think everyone one them can get that extra 5+ goals on top of their usual output in that regard. Easily. Still a work in progress as we can see from the pre season games but it will click eventually.

If we pull this off, it would be great. 

That cunt out of the club, and we also get decent replacement, but most of all, we will have some midfield now if we land Kovacic. 

Daaaaaamn. 

P.s. hopefuly there is buy clause and he ends up liking us.

Real Madrid has closed the transfer of Kovacic for a year with Chelsea. José Ángel Sánchez closed it yesterday in London. (via @partidazocope) #CFC #RMCF

WELCOME

Willian was right. We should have never let go of a player like Diego Costa.

You can get players with all kinds of technical ability, but top notch predators are what make the difference in the end.

And agreed, Hazard is the only one who can compensate if he can improve his 17-18 goal a season tally to something well above 20

As much as I like the player, I feel this deal makes us look like a small club. Which big club loans a player and doesn't include any option to buy. Even if we benefit from having the player for a year. If his career is rejuvenated and he plays at an excellent level, all we would be doing is develop him for Real Madrid who takes him back next summer and could still come back for our best player. The real winner here is them I fear.

It does give us a year to look for the right player.  Maybe we can negotiate a fee with Madrid during the course of the year.  An option to buy would have been best.  Bayern did it with James, and with Coman.  Shame we couldn't do the same.  

But, he has to give a shit if he wants more time at Madrid, which works for us.  It's also an upgrade for us now.  It's better than buying some crap for 40M, for sure.  Maybe Barkley or RLC take to the role and we don't need anyone next season.  It keeps our options open.  Though if we had a buy clause, it would open our options up even more.

I think Real are hesitant to sell since they don't know Modric's situation right now.
