Chelsea plan late loan bid for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez

Feel like we’re going to sign Niguez or Rice late

Wish we’d just sign Rice, Mount should of said to Roman you owe me a favour for the CL win, buy my brother
----------------------------------------------------------------------
But rice isn’t better than jorgino kante or kovacic so why would you want him?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think Kovacic is crap and Jorginho is meh and Kante gets injured quite easily these days

Surprised nobody has taken Barkley yet

Can’t call any of them crap or meh when they played such a role in us winning the cl last year. Rice is not proven at any sort of level. Decent player but not worth 50m plus

He is though

This is the same thing with Shaw people was like he’s not worth £50m

But when you think Rice is 22 he could give us 10 years. How much would we spend in the interim on £30m type midfielders that always end up being meh or pot shots like with strikers or attackers

Bit like instead of buying Shaw for £50m we’ve ended up spending about £90m on LB’s the last few years and haven’t had huge success

Not to say Shaw would of been success but he was 21 and a Chelsea fan and very good and injury free before united

Yet we hesitated because of the price and what have we done since? Filipe Luis, Baby Rahman, Alonso, Chilwell

Shaw was £30m though. And wan bissaka certainly is not worth £50m

Still would have had to do that due to his injuries anyway. They’ve still had to play Daley blind,rojo, bought Alex telles and others I’ve forgotten. Alonso has had more good seasons for us since luke shaw has been at Utd and chillwell has equal the amount of good seasons and only been here a year

Oh they also played Williams at left back and Alex buttner. Luke shaw has played 130 games in 9 seasons.
An average of 14 games.

Looks like ww dodged a bullet

For all his performances Shaw got nothing last year

Chilwell bossed the CL final

Oscar wtf do you think you’re doing putting down Chilwell? He’s as good as Shaw if not better you disrespectful tu’rd licker

As I said, who’s to say he wouldn’t of stayed injury free if we had signed him with our quality injury record

posted on 24/8/21

The point I was judging it on was we passed up the opportunity to sign the best young LB in the world at the time because we didn’t want to pay £50m even though he could of given us 10-15 years service (as I pointed o at the time) and I said we’ll end up spending double that over the next few years anyway and we’ve then spent around 100m since in the last 4-5 years

Point i’m making is we end up spending it anyway whether it’s over 2/3 years or just in one go. And we might as well spend it in one go to get a better chance of having a successful player

I’d rather spend £60m on a 22 year old rice than £30m on about 3 random pot shot europeans from abroad over the next 2-3 years

Lumping him in with failed signings didn’t give that impression but glad you cleared it up, Chilly is quality

Luke shaw was never the best young lb in the world. All this sounds revisionist on the back of shaw having one great season.

And why do you keep quoting 50 million when it was 30?

Declan rice, West Ham want 100m, it’s not even comparable.

I’m just saying it’s odd we’re happy to spend 60m on some random PL unproven French CB from Sevilla when we have a quality French CB PL Proven in Zouma and we won’t send 60m on PL proven young class midfielder Rice who’s friends with all the boys too

But Rice is a world class DM

Why wait

Kante seems to get injured every 5 games now, Jorginho blows hot and cold and is still meh (way too many back passes) and Kovacic is garbage

Why not just get rice in now, it’s logical. A bit part midfielder like Niguez (same level as Barkley) would cost us 30m-40m

100% although will be more than £60m but agree with the sentiment

It is interesting that Tuchel has emphasised the importance of squad harmony recently. I guess he might be a bit worried about the impact of signing Kounde when he'll inevitably take a lot of minutes from our other CBs and/or Saul (even on loan) to be one of our highest earners and be our 4th choice CM.

Do you not consider us short with Zouma leaving at CB?
