It is the telegraph and they are very reliable. English players earn very much at top clubs

Werner is 170kpw, and chilwell 190? 

This would make him our 2nd highest earner. I find that hard to believe and digest

Tears in my eyes. Finally a proper left back. 

Don't want to kneejerk too soon but if he keeps this up this will be my worst misjudgement ever, and I've made some in my time.

He is English, so why is it not possible. All the reports say that. The athletic said it will be 190k and now it is the telegraph.

Our English lads are happy with the signing on Twitter.

Yeah, cool to see. Should be extremely easy for him to settle since we have so many English guys in the team.

Where did they mention it on The Athletic?

This is the one transfer this Summer that looks suspect. Sure, Ziyech has big questions over his physical abilities to play in the PL. However, Chilwell has been an average PL LB for 7 out of 9 months this past season. For me, I am slightly worried as I can see him entering the dreg realm within a year or two with his contract and fee if he doesn't improve. 

At this moment, as with all new players he has my 100% support and I hope I have missed something about his abilities.

He sure has the potential with that contract we will never be able move him on. Not even that mad about the fee. Player was this expensive bc of the strong position leicester were in with his contract. But the wages are unnecessarily high. I bet he would have joined for like 150k as well. Huge slap for Marina if the 190kpw is true.

The only source who has said 190k weekly wage is John Percy from Telegraph who is a Leicester mouthpiece. He is also the only person saying the fee is an initial 50m, with further installments and add-ons due.

I'd like to see another source confirming the 190k figure.

Yeah...and they all happened to be in quarantine (not Chilwell, I think)...

So happy with this summer seems like we are stocking up a core team for next 5-8 years shouldn’t expect a summer like this every year but as long as we add 1-2 quality signings in the following summers and continue to use our academy we should be fine.

I remember when Leicester beat us season before the one that just ended. Was looking back at my comments on his performance: Just under 2 years later we have signed him :)

Football is a funny old game. Hopefully he locks down this position for years to come and becomes England's main LB too.

Good signing, alonso is 30 and Emerson is awful. 

Everyone mentioned that he is good defensively but I watched him closely against Watford, Sarr get passed him with ease. He is quick though so he can go up and down better than alonso.

He is gonna turn 24 end of year. He should have 2 more years of development and then he better be the finished article we need. People act like he is fresh out of school but he is a seasoned wok veteran who still plays like a promising 20 y.o. He must grow the fuck up quickly



No one is acting like that. He's our left back now and he's performed better over the last 2 years than any left back we've had for a while other than in a wingback system.

Not sure why he needs to "grow the fuck up quickly" and what he's done to make you think he isn't grown up. Also players develop at different rates. What 24 means to one is different to another. A players prime is generally mid to late 20s of which he currently isn't.

The market is the way it is and the fact of the matter is if we want a play we have to pay a premium 9 times out of 10.

No one is expecting or should be expecting him to be Ashley Cole 2.0. It'd be great if he became that but it's unlikely.

Were Werner and Ziyech even presented with shirt? I thought they are saving for all of them to pose together, but Ig is full of Chilwell posing and interviews...its funny how it looks now that Chilwell is the biggest signing so far😄

The market is pretty normal. Reguilon, Telles and Tagliafico were all around 25-30 million Euros range, but we chose to go for Chilwell and make him the second most expensive LB of all time. He earns very likely quite a lot.

So expectations are quite high. So he needs to get fit first because he is injured for a while now and after that, he needs to show that he is Chelsea level. Next season will be tough because we slaughtered Emerson and Alonso when they played bad against Mahrez. This time they have to face Messi lol.
