I actually think we'll get him. I mean, we're actually a much better fit for him as we play a pretty pure 343/3421. Furthermore, if the Håland stuff is true, who do you want to be crossing into? Håland/Giroud/Havertz/Alonso (when he plays) or Neymar/Mbappe/Icardi? If he goes to PSG, he will have to pretty much play everything to feet. 

Personally, I think the reason it is taking a while is that Inter are milking the offers. PSG are clearly interested so they'll ride us for all we're worth. 

But what if the Hakimi-PSG stories were true? What if he really does prefer PSG?

Ohh come off it, he is world class and though he went for 90M he still delivers week in week out.......or so the media will have us believe as if we dont have eyes.

World class hype

World class self-promotion

World class egomania

 

World class football? Not so much.

We'll be fine with Hakimi and without Hakimi. If we get him, great, but there's no point crying if we don't sign him.

He's a world-class wing-back but he's not going to single-handedly decide if we do well next season.

Adama Traore is good squad player like Victor Moses with better physics and dribble but he is not world-class  or better than Reece James .

 I have the feeling that from Haaland and Lukaku we will finally end up with Icardi or Jovic .

I'd rather buy no one if it means Traore and Icardi/Jovic.

What if they are not? For me, it is always wise to see the fit as we never hear from players themselves but rather idiots posting on twitter seeking clicks and followers.

From a footballing perspective we win hands down. That should mean a great deal. Of course, I know nothing, however I am fairly confident we can get it done.

If this happens we will be in the market for two keepers I'd guess.

The third choice (hopefully) won't really matter much but the second choice we will need to get right with the ACON on the way.

Idealistically Hradecky would fancy the gig but realistically Sergio Romero is probably the best choice, maybe Areola.

GK 2 - Romero is available. Areola would be ideal - based in London I hope he wants to stick around and not move houses or something and accepts the 2nd choice role here.

GK 3 - Hennessey like you said. Gazzaniga available from Spurs, or John Ruddy who was close to joining Chelsea few years ago.

Don't try to turn it around here. lol Because you sound so confident, I'm asking you what if they are true. 

Not everything in life makes sense or has to make sense. If somehow PSG/Pochettino can convince Hakimi better, then he could easily just go there. We are assuming Hakimi will be first choice if he comes here but what if he isn't? What if Tuchel told him he'll rotate the RWB options while Pochettino can guarantee him a starting spot week in week out?

I think he does really prefer PSG, which is fucking stressing me to no end, as he and Håland are the only two transfers I am 100000% emotional invested in getting

other than (no real links) Mbappe

 

there just are not that many younger super super players out there who are actually available (at least 27yo max, preferably younger, and I am certainly not interested in buying hugely expensive players who are 29 or older already (save for GKers, and there the prices drop for all but Oblak)

its a short list at that level (25 players and many on here are not 'really' available with insane money dropped to convince the other club to sell, and some are gambles on potential) Donnarumma just came off it, as he went on a damn free to PSG

 

Mbappe (my huge fear is he renews if PSG get Hakimi and Camavinga in (plus others, and they now already have bloody Donnarumma on a fucking free), and then next year, if we fail now, they use all those new and existing WC players to pull in Håland and make a superclub that would dwarf even a non WC CF-fronted Citeh (that assumes Citeh fail at Kane and Lukaku), and perhaps then end up pulling de Ligt and/or Bastoni in circa summer 2023 or so We laugh at Poch sometimes, but ffs, if he gets THAT level of squad to run with, well eeeeeeeeeeeeek)

Håland
Sancho (surely is soon a Manure player)

Jan Oblak (insanely expensive for a GK and due to age and length of contrat demands, plus wages, his window closes after next summer, as he turns 30yo 4 monthst after the 2022 summer window closes) 

Declan Rice   (insanely overpriced at £100m)   
Nicolò Barella   (not even sure what it would take to get Inter to sell)  
Jack Grealish   (another insanely costly one due to the English tax, just like Rice)
Achraf Hakimi   
Alessandro Bastoni   (same as Barella, no clue what it would take to get Inter to sell)
Matthijs de Ligt (no clue what it would take to get Juve to sell)
Bukayo Saka (would LOVE to have him, but again, we are talking £90-100m to wrench him away from Arsenal, which is just ridiculous)
Eduardo Camavinga
Theo Hernández   
Jude Bellingham  (I think wait on him for at least 1 more year, he is still only 17yo, turns 18yo in 9 days) 
Youri Tielemans  (Leicester will want around £80m I wager)
João Félix (massive gamble to shell out the cash AM would demand, and IF he finally explodes, he will cost even more)
Sergej Milinković-Savić
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (another £100m price tagged English tax player)
Richarlison
Manuel Locatelli
Paulo Dybala (clock is running out for hum, he turns 29yo a few months into the season after this coming one, so summer 2022 is the last window he makes any of my lists, I do not do 30+ players unless it is a free or a GKer
Dusan Vlahovic    
Alexander Isak
Saúl Ñíguez
Ryan Gravenberch

no No NO

would rather go for Dusan Vlahovic or Isak or Jonathan David than those two

especially Jovic, he has been a HUGE bust (DCL is too expensive I fear)

Not convinced of this source - it just says as per "Italian broadcast media" and quotes an older Sky report. But I'm okay with idea of trading Alonso to sweeten the Hakimi deal.

Well I am confident because the noises out of Italy is he prefers to play here and the reliable UK journos for Chelsea have said he is a big target for us. Additionally, hasn't Romero linked us more? That gives me confidence has that is up against a couple of French journos. I also think for a 22 year old, we offer more as well. I mean Mbappe is looking more and more likely to feck PSG off with every day he doesn't sign a contract. 

Of course PSG could give him insane wages and he goes there, but with what I have read and cutting out the white noise, I am confident we're the preferred destination.

Chelsea close to first summer transfer after days of contact with £55.8m star's agent

https://www.thechelseachronicle.com/transfer-news/report-Chelsea-close-to-first-summer-transfer-after-days-of-contact-with-55-8m-stars-agent/

Chelsea are on verge of completing their first transfer deal this summer after days of talks with Inter Milan star Achraf Hakimi’s representative, according to Calciomercato.

As widely reported before, the Italian outlet claims that Hakimi’s transfer saga is a two-horse race between Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

While many would think that a transfer of such scale would take some time, Inter’s financial situation means a deal could be struck in the next 10 days.

The Serie A champions will reportedly have to sell one of their stars and balance their accounts by June 30.

At the moment, Hakimi seems to be the closest to leaving Inter, the report added.

Calciomercato claims that Chelsea have “gained a considerable advantage” over PSG and are “close to the finish line” after several days of contacts with Hakimi’s agent.

The Blues have reportedly tabled an offer of €60million (£51.5m)plus one of either Marcos Alonso, Emerson Palmieri, or Andras Christensen for Hakimi.

Alonso is the one Inter are reportedly focusing. The report further added that their new manager Simone Inzaghi has even given the green light for the 30-year-old as he sees him as an “ideal” player.

The board have identified two solid targets in Hakimi and Haaland. It doesn't mean we will get Haaland over the line this summer but we will be in pole position next year if we don't. We need GK2 and GK3, as well as CF2 and a CM and MAYBE a CB. LF2 if Alonso is used to get Hakimi or CB if Christensen goes.

Haven't I? I thought the question was why I was so confident about it? If the question, is what if the PSG rumours are true, then firstly, that is a hypothetical, secondly, then it means I am wrong. 

Sorry if I am being slow, it has been a long day!

I hope it is either Zappa or Emerson, Alonso is handy and losing AC would just be pure madness.
