Costa speaking in the press today, "Antonio Conte has told me by message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that's it. Conte said he did not count on me for next season.

"It's a shame, I've already forwarded the message to Chelsea people to decide. But it is clear that the coach does not count on me and does not want me there. You have to find a team. "

If this is the case Eds would we have any interest? Or am I just particularly poor at maths?


{Ed004's Note - I highly doubt we have shown an interest and I wouldn't want him here}

1.) 08 Jun 2017 08:48:51
He doesn't want to stay in England.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 09:13:58
Was he not one of the players that fell out with Jose the other year.

3.) 08 Jun 2017 09:55:19
Imagine the flak Jose would be getting for allegedly texting a player and saying "I don't need you you are out " doesn't seem a decent way to treat a player who has helped win you a PL in your first season . horrible knb that he is.

Balague is claiming that Pedro to us will be finalised this week.


1.) 18 Aug 2015 13:50:07
That that deal dead then ha.

2.) 18 Aug 2015 16:27:51
Balague is not very reliable when it comes to transfer rumours, although Pedro is definitely on our Radar and should be wrapped up sooner rather than later.

I'd put lots of money on it being utter dog poo but Football365 reporting that we are willing to pay Ronaldo's release clause.

100% won't happen - would be nice and all but he's not going anywhere.


1.) 07 Jun 2017 16:00:56
iirc ronald's clause is €1bn.

2.) 07 Jun 2017 16:08:36
Transfers have gone mad but 1 billion is pushing it.

3.) 07 Jun 2017 16:49:15
You do release we can't trigger aronaldos release clause because we are not a Spainish or Portuguese club.

4.) 07 Jun 2017 18:06:22
would we not make a billion back In shirt sales? 😂.



05 Jun 2017 13:17:10
I know some of the EDs aren't a big fan of him but Renato Sanches for 30 mil must be worth a punt.


1.) 05 Jun 2017 14:32:23
If he was, everyonw would be after him. I'm sure Jose knows all about him and would go for him if he deems fit.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 15:20:20
Why would we allow Bayern to recoup the majority of their transfer fee for a young player who hasn't been able to cope with the move from Portugal? We lucked out not signing him last season, and would be daft to go back knowing that he isn't ready to play for a big club away from his home. Best thing for the lad is to go back home for a few seasons to get his career back on track.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 16:41:08
I Would prefer we go in for Douglas Costa. I think the player is quality. We lack wingers that can hug the chalk, stretch and get in behind fullbacks.

{Ed004's Note - I wouldn't be against a loan with an option to buy (after 1 or 2 years - similar to Coman) but can't see Bayern being tempted with that. If we played 433 he would be good cover for Herrera}

4.) 05 Jun 2017 18:56:32
Do you think Jose will be able to work his magic with the kid being a Portuguese n all? Looks like it is the culture change he is struggling with - where are ronaldo Anderson and Nani when you need them! Also doesn't look like Sanchez would shy away from work. Might be a decent purchase if we can get him for £25 mil.

{Ed004's Note - There's no way of knowing if Jose could get the best out of him. Jose doesn't seem to excel with youth}



12 Jun 2016 20:46:59
Pjanic medical at The Old Lady. I only see one centre midfielder coming in this summer. Kante 1st priority then matic as 2nd choice.

I think Rooney will remain in midfield and that's. Fine I guess schneiderlin, Carrick and fellaini making up the numbers.

I think another centre half will come in and fosu Mensa and Valencia will play RB - possibly Jones too.

A right sided midfielder (although I think Jose will make adnan great) and a forward.


1.) 12 Jun 2016 23:15:30
What would Matic bring? he's is utter rubbish. Hate seeing us linked to him, he is very slow robust 1 dimensional. up n down. but hasn't seemed to go for a whole season. Defends ok but so does Joe Allen and I'm sure Allen can moverify abit more to sides then Matic. Both on par when it comes to passing back! Matic to me looked well out of his depths last season. He is completely overrated.

2.) 12 Jun 2016 23:20:02
Totally agree cr92. I've never rated him. Kante is twice the player.



01 Jun 2016 09:43:35
Skysports reporting that jm wants lindelof and pjanic sorted asap. Lindelof, mike smalling, fosu Mensa + 1. As someone wrote earlier pjanic will give us more threat from set pieces.


1.) 01 Jun 2016 11:18:39
Sky are reporting from spanish and portuguese newspapers so i would question the reliability of those claims.

Having said that i would love pjanic to play in midfield. Schneiderlin, herrera and pjanic in a 4-3-3 system would be great.

2.) 01 Jun 2016 12:50:36
I'll be jumping if we get someone like Pjanic.
Weren't Juve interested in him?
Press if after Andre Gomes, but I feel we do have box to box players in ander herrera and morgan and maybe even fosumensah. Fellaini perhaps.
What we lack is a carrick sort of player, and Pjanic would be perfect for us.

3.) 01 Jun 2016 13:18:13
Pjanic stations!

4.) 01 Jun 2016 13:45:22
Ed002 said on the Chelsea pages that Pjanic is heading there. Iv always admired him. He'll do well in the Premier league.

5.) 01 Jun 2016 14:15:19
When did he say that mumbles. I checked but only found an old post from may16th stating that no discussions had taken place.

6.) 01 Jun 2016 18:41:03
Angelred. I was just looking back through them there and couldn't find anything. I spent a few hours the other day reading most of the pages and that just seemed to pop into my head about Pjanic. I have been known to be wrong on the past. Maybe my memory isn't what I remember it to be haha.

7.) 01 Jun 2016 19:17:38
Everyone is going to chelsea did you guys not know that and they have more money than Real, Barcelona, United combined and they are ready to cut a cheque for Pogba, Pjanic, Marquinos, Mickitharian, Griezeman etc etc Not sure how they suddenly got so rich as their financials is fraction of ours.

I am sure selling Mickel and oscar will raise enough funds to get the deals done:)



17 Aug 2015 13:39:35
I don't think we will see any signings until we have got past Club Brugge. This fills me with hope that the quality of signing we have lined up would not be willing to not play in the Champions League.

As such I have very high hopes for three new players after the second leg. 1 CB I would think Hummels or Otamendi, a striker, Lewandowski perhaps or even Lukaku and a wide forward, more than likely Pedro.


1.) 17 Aug 2015 14:10:51
Good point. CL qualification could well have a bearing on the quality of player we potentially could sign.

2.) 17 Aug 2015 14:18:52
Our additional signings and getting past club club Brugge has nothing to do with it. All your wish list are pipe dreams but pedro.

3.) 17 Aug 2015 14:35:28

None of our 'wishlists' had Di Maria or Falcao on last summer until the day we signed them, and although they didn't turn out to be too great it does make me realise that the club do a lot of things we know nothing about that could surprise us at any time.

4.) 17 Aug 2015 14:57:23
I would have thought it could have a bearing on a "potential" (operative word) signing if that potential signing said it was a prerequisite that we are playing CL football.

5.) 17 Aug 2015 15:29:02
Couldn't agree more GDS, just look at Real buying Kovacic yesterday, all happened so quick.

6.) 17 Aug 2015 15:35:45
I wouldn't want any one that said "unless you get passed Club Brugge I'm not signing".

7.) 17 Aug 2015 16:55:13
GDS2 and Nathaniel

You are both quite naive to think the players mentioned are available. Kovacic has been available all summer and not even an integral part of the inter team and in most games he does not start.

He is very talented but is also hit and miss and can have atrocious games. Real buying him is a punt that he might come good in the future. There are many players like him like Iturbe, Munian etc etc who fit the same mold and can be bought but all a gamble as they can be big busts as well.

Di Maria was put up for sale last year by Real once they got Rodrigues and Falcao was also going somewhere as Monaco has been Dumping their wage bill as fast as they can.

The players you are mentioning are key parts of big teams with similar ambitions to us and will not be sold.

There is a big difference when a player is surplus to requirements i.e Pedro because of Suarez than when they are a guaranteed starter for a Major team with CL ambitions who at this point in the window can not find a suitable replacement and in the case of strikers there is none available.

8.) 17 Aug 2015 16:58:05
Forgot to say

Druvcker who is a very reliable journalist has said for months we are not interested in Ottamendi, whether true or not we are definitely not interested at the asking price or would have signed him a long time ago. Hummels does not want to move and neither do dortmund want to sell him so get over it.

Ed - does that mean blind, tfm and tuanzebe rotating as fourth choice dependant on rojo recovery?

Who would you drop: Pogba or Herrara? I think we need to replace Carrick as a priority (due to age not performance) . Although Herrara can deputise there, I fear he would be found out (in the deeper role) against elite opposition.

As much as I like Rakitic, I don't think he is what we need.

I have a feeling we're getting both. That would mean those two, Pogba, Captain Herrara and Carrick into three. With injuries and games that looks good in there - fellahin I to leave, Carrick to leave next year with tfm or tuanzebe taking his place in the squad.

"you never even wanted to be in Europa League yet now you are lauding it like it was the greatest achievement in the history of football. "

No we didn't but we are delighted to win it. Not hard to grasp.

"United fans have always taken the mickey out of anyone considering that worthwhile in the past. "

You love a sweeping statement don't you? Personally I love my team winning trophies large or small.

By the way Liverpool's treble was legitimate and a fantastic achievement.

Can we all be friends now?

Oh great the entertainment trophy, I bet the fans are loving that one. 1 actual trophy this year - potential for another actual trophy. But yeah you're right looking good is the be all and end all.

"he has done nothing since then that suggests he is anything like his former self. "

Other than win the league cup - just like he did with Chelsea.

He's also made us hard to beat and the amount of clear cut chances we have against us is much lower than last year.

Next season he will improve us offensively.

His first Chelsea side scored a lot of goals as did his Real team. We will too, but we don't want to rely on scoring 4 to win a game so fix the defence and build from there.

The football has been much better this season bar a few key games.

Personally I'm interested in every trophy that we can win. I loved winning the League Cup - was a great day! Would I rather we won the league - of course yeah but we could win two trophies this year! Why aren't people satisfied by that?

I'm 33 and so grew up with Fergie and trophies - as fans we have been spoiled by that success. We have to be realistic and see that dominance that we witnessed is much more unlikely in this day and age.

The big test is next year. Have patience - we're better than we were last year, it's just that so are Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, City and Everton.
