If last January and last summer is anything to go by, it's that Cech's appointment has hopefully helped preventing some of our previous actions with stop gaps or paying ludicrous amounts for average players.

If rumours about Rice and Lukacow are anything to go by it didn't, both of them are Tottenham level at maximum no matter how many people tell me Lukaku improved or Rice is anything but an average overhyped English mug.

Not buying the agent fees stuff at all with Hakimi. Didn’t we pay more in agent fees than anyone in Europe last season? Pretty sure I saw a report about that a couple of months ago.

I just think he had his head set on PSG. And I’m sure they offered double in salary than what we did.

2 points

1. It never said it was the sole or even main reason.

2. We paid the most agent fees in the EPL (not all of UEFA) at a wee bit over £35m for the whole 12 months, BUT that includes all those buys, plus agents' cuts from loans (IF they were not paid by the loanee, as FIFA banned motherfuckers from working BOTH (or even all 3, if you count the player getting raped as well) sides, like that piece of dogshit Mino did with the Pogba deal, where BOTH Manure AND Juve paid that cockwomble, and SO DID POGBA himself, a triple play payday, he ended up pocketing almost 50m euros!) that reduced our intake from those, etc.

Lukaku I'm sure is purely speculation but the Rice rumors have me worried. Then again, the Athletic did post that article after Lampard's sacking that our board were frustrated with him when he urged them to spend big on Rice. 

Hopefully there is truth to that, as that would fall under the 'not spend ridiculous amounts for average players' category.

Honestly with these average players rumoured, United officially signing Sancho and being linked to Camavinga, Goretzka and Varane will take a break from the transfer window because it's already pissing me off, hope we turn around but I don't trust Marina even with Cech around.

Marina doesn't target the players, she is the fee/contract power

90% certain Sancho is there only big signing. They will not get either of those three.

Report: Chelsea put off by huge agent fees involved in potential deal for Hakimi

https://www.thechelseachronicle.com/transfer-news/report-Chelsea-put-off-by-huge-agent-fees-involved-in-potential-deal-for-22-year-old/

Reluctance to pay huge agent fees is one of the reasons why Chelsea took a step back in the pursuit of Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi, according to The Telegraph’s Matt Law.

As reported by Calciomercato.it last week, the Blues look to have been beaten by Paris Saint-Germain in the race for the 22-year-old.

Obviously, PSG’s reported €70million (£60m) offer’s being more attractive to Inter compared to Chelsea’s reported player-plus-cash offer may have been the biggest factor.

But that is not the only one, according to Law.

“I did some checking, and Chelsea’s interest in Hakimi has been real,” the journalist told London is Blue podcast.

While Law was unsure whether there was an official bid or not, he claims that there were indeed talks between Chelsea and Inter about Hakimi’s price tag.

“From what I’m told, there is basically large agent fees involved with Hakimi,” he added.

“We’ve been here before with Chelsea, they don’t like those massive agent fees.

“It seems like PSG are willing to pay the agent exactly what he wants and a huge amount of wages for a right-back.

“I think that has dimmed Chelsea’s interest slightly.”

There was no such things in top league football it is customary for selling clubs to use a decoy club to raise value of the player. Hakimi is no better than CHO or Reece James, why the hell would we want to pay this price tag. In this case Chelsea was decoy club and Inter will return the favour later.

as a RWB he blows them away, he is by far the best RWB on the planet and is only going to get better

‘Double it’: Some fans react as their 25-year-old attacker is linked with Chelsea

https://www.thechelseachronicle.com/transfer-news/double-it-some-fans-react-as-their-25-year-old-attacker-is-linked-with-Chelsea/

Chelsea are being linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Adama Traore – but some Wolves fans on Twitter have responded by claiming he should cost a lot more than the reported price tag. 

Well-respected journalist Matt Law, speaking on the London Is Blue podcast, claims that Chelsea do have interest in the Wolves speed machine. 

It is understood that a fee between £20-25million could be enough for his signature. 

Traore, who earns £46,000-a-week, is an extremely unique player in the Premier League. 

The 25-year-old is unplayable on his day for opposition full-backs.

He can breeze past defenders like they are not there with raw pace and power that makes him stand out from the crowd. However, his final product is holding him back.

The right-winger is part of the Spain squad at Euro 2020 this summer, but has only had one substitute cameo so far in the tournament. 

Traore is really effective for Wolves off the bench to frighten the life out of defences. 

He’s someone that Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea are looking at, which isn’t a massive surprise when you consider he can play as a wing-back or winger. 

The Spanish flyer does look like someone that has never fully unlocked his potential manager, so perhaps a fresh change could help the ex-Barcelona talent.

Adama for 20-25m is acceptable. I think trimming the squad, especially the dregs. In all reality, we signed Werner and Havertz for more than 100m last summer. We can wait for the right targets like Liverpool did. I think the board is wary of buying squad players with so many on the wage bill.

It is clear we are after very fast RWB and rightly so. If we get Haaland or any other striker most likely Havertz and Mount would start behind him in this formation and they are not fast. James/Azpi also not fast just like Chilwell/Alonso.

So having two wingers/number 10s and two wing backs without any pace would not be smartest idea. I would include more Pulisic and CHO but not likely.

What is behind this new contract extensions for Michy last summer, Bakayoko now? Just admit mistake and let them go even for free, are board still hoping they will come good on loans?
