In the recent years i can only think about Luiz, Kepa, and Ziyech. The rest including Werner, Pulisic, Kovacic are hardly discreet.

Well it depends how you look at things. The transfers such as Werner and Pulisic were linked but it looked like they were going elsewhere. Hence, a load of posts about the board not knowing what they were doing, then boom, done deal. 

So, I think this is a slight semantics issue, no the club aren't so discreet that absolutely nothing gets reported (although they have done on occasion) but they work in a way were it seems like we're behind others and/or not doing much. 

My issue with posts here is that there are some people losing their sh*t over not having a signing yet. However, for all we know they could be working hard on Håland. 

Thus, if Håland was announced in four weeks time, people wouldn't class it as discreet as it was reported, however to do a deal like that would mean constant negotiations for months. So, if we do, then we have been discreet currently as there aren't constant updates (like Werner for instance were most of the noise was to the Dippers.)

Aye it doesn’t look great for Tammy but at the same time, will we get the apparent 35/40m price we want for him? Who’s going to replace him if we aren’t able to get deals for Haaland or Lukaku?

Theres no other real links to CFs which is a huge concern and we hopefully won’t just buy an average player for the sake of it.

It would probably be stupid to sell either of Tammy or Giroud without making a purchase first in that area. Giroud is the only one with any sort of concretely links away as well. Tuchel might have to give him another chance though if we don’t get anyone in. 

Watkins raised £35m last season with zero PL experience. Tammy, despite his flaws, is a proven regular scorer in England, is young and has the English tax factor. £35m+ is quite achievable imo as there are plenty of middle PL clubs that need a goal scorer (Brighton, Palace, Newcastle, West Ham etc.)

 If really Tuchel want Rice and an offer is being prepared for it who will be sold ?

Kovacic ? 

Does TT really want Rice? The guy isn't very good at breaking the lines with either his passing or running. Imo, if he does come it won't be long before he is converted to a CB role; especially in a 3.

I doubt we'd be considering letting Giroud go if we didn't have a striker lined up, or be confident of securing one.

You all know what I'm thinking, and you're right, it won't be Haaland.

Think the key point will come if/when we let Abraham go. Right now, if we take Giroud of the equation, we still have 3 players for the ST position - Werner, Havertz and Abraham - even though 2 of them aren't out-and-out #9s.

According to Goal, it's "very unlikely" that Milan can afford to sign Ziyech. Otherwise, as mentioned by others earlier, they want Giroud and Bakayoko.

Sad to see Giroud go, what a bargain buy that was, absolutely super for us, even under difficult circumstances.

Giroud could soon become a new Milan player. The last contacts between Chelsea and Milan have been very positive. Milan will pay €2m (€1m + add ons).

Chelsea star 'refuses to report for pre-season' as he seeks permanent Stamford Bridge exit

Brazilian Kenedy will not return to Chelsea until his future is agreed


Kenedy not returning until future is agreed

Bruno Spindel, executive director of Flamengo, last week confirmed their interest in Kenedy.

He told Extra: "He's a very interesting athlete. He had a great season, we would really like to have him,

"Because of the financial situation and everything that happened to him, it is a very difficult negotiation," said the executive.

The 25-year-old has been on loan at Spanish side Granada and impressed last season, making 44 appearances, and scoring eight goals.

Flamengo want him on loan, however apparently no such negotiations have so far taken place with Chelsea.

Flamenco’s director concedes it could be a difficult acquisition, as Kenedy is still contracted to the Blues, and would also command a high salary.

According to Extra, the player is currently residing in Brazil, rather than reporting back for Thomas Tuchel’s pre-season training camp.

Kenedy has not had many chances at Chelsea since joining in 2015 for around £6.2million.

Since then, he’s made just 27 appearances for the Blues, and only scored three times.

Instead, Chelsea managers have chosen to send the Brazilian out on loan, and he has so far had spells at Watford, Newcastle United, Getafe, and most recently Granada.

It would appear he has grown more and more frustrated at Chelsea, which is unsurprising given the number of chances he’s been given.

The winger’s apparent decision to not return to England will not go down well in Tuchel’s books.

By trying to drag out quite an unnecessary saga with Chelsea, the issue is likely only to become prolonged and tiresome for all parties involved.

Competition in Tuchel’s squad has only increased after last season’s emphatic Champions League win. Everyone will be wanting to prove to the German boss that they belong, and deserve, a place in his team.

A return to Brazil could settle Kenedy, and at only 25 years old, he could rediscover the form that got him his big move six years ago.

However, the future doesn’t look bright for Kenedy if he continues to cause Chelsea problems.

It could just be a sign of the player finally wanting out, but the way he’s gone about it will burn bridges in England and give him a reputation that will become hard to come back from.

Kenedy’s frustration seems to have now hit boiling point, and only time will tell when and how it is resolved.

Chelsea boss Tuchel might finally be able to sign 'very strong' player whom he wanted at PSG


Thomas Tuchel has previously admitted that he would love to have “strong” Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga in his Paris Saint-Germain team — and now he might have the opportunity to sign him at Chelsea.

The 18-year-old whose contract at Rennes expires next summer (in 2022) sensation is reportedly set for a summer move to another club.

According to Le Parisien journalist Julien Laurens, Chelsea are one of the four clubs currently in the transfer race for the young midfielder.

The French journalist also claims that the Blues have also been in contact with Camavinga’s agent, Jonathan Barnett.

Obviously, despite his talent, many would still question whether Chelsea really need him, especially at given his reported €40-50million price tag.

Bear in mind, they have recently sent Billy Gilmour, who is arguably as talented, on loan to Norwich City.

But if it was down to Tuchel, he would likely not hesitate to pull the trigger — at least if he has not changed his mind.

Back in September 2020, just a few months prior to his arrival at Chelsea, he already had his say about the France international.

“Would I like to have him on my team? Yes, of course,” Tuchel said about the rumours about Camavinga’s potentially joining PSG last summer (via Goal).

“But I can’t talk about other players, who are not from my team.

“He’s one of the best players in Ligue 1.

“He’s a great player, very strong, with a great future. But he also plays in a great team which plays in the Champions League.

“But that’s not how it goes, it’s not Monopoly!

“I’m not going to say not to recruit him, but that’s not how it goes.”

Milan News: Milan reach agreement with Chelsea over Giroud – operation will cost €8-9m in total

(edited to add that figure includes Giroud's salary, so it was bang on)


AC Milan have reached an agreement with both Chelsea and Olivier Giroud over the transfer of the striker to Italy, a report claims.

It has been well documented that the Rossoneri are in the market for a new striker who can be the deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic given the Swede will turn 40 before the end of the year and has struggled with injury problems.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Milan have reached an agreement with Chelsea for Giroud. The Rossoneri will pay Chelsea a figure of €1m plus €1m in bonuses given that they renewed his contract until 2022, meaning they were able to command a fee.

A two-year contract worth €3.5m net per year plus bonuses is ready for the French centre-forward. Only medical examinations, and signatures are missing and then the former Arsenal man is ready to become a new Milan player and try Serie A for the first time.
