 People I talk to think he is just a temperamental narcissist like Ballotelli, so 'being a back up to Jorginho' would just have him sulking in a snood on the bench.

Apart from that, he is not a Chelsea type signing.

I meant more as a starting 8 but also back up to Jorginho since he has the quality to back him up. His versatile enough to play both positions. I think he would be a better buy than Kovacic plus his home grown.

Pretty certain the board wouldn't sanction whatever the Glazer freaks would want for him

One can only hope. I certainly would take a risk on him. This is why we need a Director of Football to help with decisions like this. Its still shocking to think we gave Alonso a 5 year contract when he still had 3 years on his contract to go. Conte tried to replace him from day one for example. I wouldnt be surprised if we over paid for Kovacic when there are chances to get a better player for less on the market.

Presumably you mean one that agrees with you. That's usually what people mean when the say we need a DoF. :) 

Bullshit. Most people who say we need DoF want either a club legend for the job or someone like Beppe Marotta who has a proven record. This is how most successful clubs are run in Europe.

Regardless of Paul Pogba we need a DoF. Our transfer strategy is all over the place and our contract situations too. A full time DoF would help with that. Look at City, Roma and Juve they benefit well from having them around

Well we had a DoF of course and most people gave him constant stick. Pretty good evidence that it's not just having a DoF, it's having one whose decisions they agree with. Or, put it another way, one who agrees with them.

Emenalo did a wonderful job up until Mourinho came back. We had a quality squad when Mourinho, you could see the benefits of a DoF back then. Mou came in wanted more power and we changed the structure a bit and Emenalo ended up losing a bit of power.

You mean Emenalo? What proven record did he have to become Chelsea director. He is now sporting director at Monaco and after one just one year at the job Monaco is in relegation zone.

Emenalo neither had a great football career like Ballack nor a proven record as DoF like Marotta before joining Chelsea.

I'm not as confident that I know the details, or the timeline, of what happened and why. I thought ME did a good job and consistently defended him against the regular attacks. It is nevertheless true that there were hundreds of posts criticising him, claiming that he was not qualified and calling for him to be sacked. His critics blamed him for everything they felt went wrong.

I say again, ME's tenure is good evidence that it's not the mere fact of having a DoF which will make people happy. It's having one who agrees with them.
