Chelsea 2018/19: Sky Italy predict how Blues could lineup under Sarri, five new signings


Recommended Posts

Maurizio SarriSky Italy predict how Chelsea could shape-up under Maurizio Sarri. We get the feeling they didn’t watch many of our games last season. OPINION: Chelsea could lineup like this after Sarri & Jorginho arrivals Sky Italy have taken a punt at predicting what our starting eleven could look like next term – and we’re not […]

That lineup is a shambolic mess. Cahill???????? Alsonso at left FULLBACK? Kante as a wide MF'er with Jorginho in back of him????? Pedro????????? Higuain I am so not enthused about! ICARDI PLEASE!!

IF THAT is what we end up with, expect Sarri to be sacked by Valentines Day

IF Real do offer the rumoured £200m for Hazard take it and do the following


We can swap with Man U
Willian for Martial

Buy Leon Bailey for around £60m

Scupper Spurs and Fulham for Malcom for £40m or so

And have £100m left over

Take that £100m, toss in Fabregas and get Milinkovic-Savic. That meets their 120 to 130 million euro (not pounds) valuation

Absolutely neutral in new money spent

And we would have THREE world class wingers

Bailey  20 years old
Malcom 21 years old
Martial 22 years old


one of the best young central midfielders in the world

Milinković-Savić 23 years old

Insanely good business



we KEEP Azpilicueta, make NO sense to sell him, he is more than capable of play right fullback in a back 4, and is a great crosser
Keep Ross Barkley
Keep Bats (MAYBE loan him out)
Keep RLC
Keep Giroud (its not like we would get a tonne anyway andhe is a GREAT backupor game changers in 60th, 70th minute)
Loan out Zouma

We then sell

Courtois £35m (we may only get that from Real, especial if they just dumped 200m on Hazard)
Drinkwater £25m
Luiz £20m to PSG or another place
Alonso £35m to Barca
Morata £55m to Juve
Pedro £15m (try for £20m but not holding breath)
Victor Moses £25m
Cahill £15m
Bakayoko £35m back to Monaco
Zappacosta £20m (multiple teams in Italy want him)

£10m from assorted other minor sales


that's £290m to the bank (those sell prices are TOTALLY realistic, even if we take a loss on some versus what we paid, but that the way the biscuit breaks)

Roman said a max NET spend of £100m when all is balanced out

we spent £50m on Jorginho

so that leaves £50m from that pot

add that to the £290m generated from sales

£340m pot

take that

and buy

Mauro Icardi £125m should get it done
Alex Sandro £65m is what Juve demands, pay it (keep Emerson for backup)
Rugani £35m
Alisson £60m
Benjamin Henrichs £25m (RB at Bayer Levekusen, only 21, massive upside) (backup/rotation for Azpi as we sold Zappacosta)
Golovin £30m

 grand total


DEAD spot on the £100m net spend 


This is NOT fantasy-land, it just will be tough as hell to do with the trans window slamming shut in 24 days.


yes we lose Hazrd and Courtois, but we clean all deadweight and LOOOOOOOK at that team!!!! So young (but experienced as well)

Under my plan, we have brought in

Alisson GK     (top 5 in world GK, should not be hardly any drop off v Courtois)
Rugani CB        (great young (23) big (1.90m), fast, ball player Italian classic CB) Loads of upside, and fucking MILES better than Cahill or Luiz are now, Sarri si a HUGE fan
Alex Sandro LB        (2nd best LB in world, after Alaba, insane upgrade over Alonso, especially for a back 4)
Benjamin Henrichs RB         (super upside, 21 yo, massively physically gift and can learn from Azpi et all)
Jorginho DMF/DHMF combo      2nd best combo playmaking DMF/deep holding MF after Busquets in the world, and is  4 years younger (26 v 30)
Milinković-Savić CMF (2nd best 23 and under CMF on the planet after Saul Niguez, and has much higher upside, is just a huge physical specimen, like Pogba with a motor)
Golovin AMF      (super young explosive ATM and can play wing too, he has all the tools, is the best Russian (I know I know, lolol) player in ages)
Bailey RW/LW         Maybe the biggest upside out all 11 newbies, I can see him playing a wee bit like Hazard, not as much a dribbler, but has a potentially better outside shot
Malcom RW      Superb young explosive RW, huge upgrade from Pedro/Willian, at least offensively, he will have to go a bit to be as good defensively as Willan was at times, but he has all the tools
Martial LW              (still only 22, and will THRIVE under Sarri, explosive upside still, he was used so wrongly at Man U by Mourinho (theres a shock, NOT!!)
Mauro Icardi CF     Best (or 2nd after Kane) Pure striker in the world ATM

for only £100m net spend

and also have (Christensen/Rudiger, Azpi, KANTE, RLC, included as starters or rotation in RLC case)
