Wenger Raid On Chelsea??

Reports are rife this morning that following Arsenal's top class display at Old Trafford at the weekend, Arsene Winger is storming into the transfer market as he launches his rebuilding programme. His main target is..... Chelsea.

He has apparently lined up an £8million move for our French midfielder Florent Malouda and has already offered £7m for our Brazilian centre-back Alex. It doesn't stop there - he is also apparently and is keen on his midfield team-mate Yossi Benayoun.

Now I, for one thing, think this is all a bit odd, but I do believe that we will see some departures today and tomorrow. Benayoun seems to be on his way out and I wouldn't be surprised if Kalou could also follow.

Could Kalou be used as part of a make-weight deal for Modric? Would we really sell Alex and Malouda to Arsenal?

The price seems very BAD business if it happened, but watch this space folks - will be an interesting day or two.

Cheers

Dutts

wish malouda and Kalou will leave; however i am curious as to why we will want to do away with Benayoun
blueblood4life
I think we'll have problems if alex leaves. a couple of years ago we had a season with all our centerbacks injured , we had to put essien at the back, don't want this to happen again , so unless we get a new CB , I don't want alex to leave unless there's a possibility to get bruma back from hamburg if we get into problems ?
TheWorldIsOurs26
hardly call it a raid.... bt malouda to arsenal???? errrr noo aint happening. heard rumours about liverpool cming back for benayoun too. we should sell these players to lille in some kinda deal to get hazard. malouda + kalou = hazard u get the point anyways
tj_blues
u know what thnking further bout this say we keep malouda he's still a usefull sub. kalou+bena=hazard
tj_blues
£8m for Malouda??? I'll call him a cab going to emirates stadium, and our board knows better than selling Benayoun without already having a replacement.
Lesbleu_vanz
If we sell Alex we'll be in big trouble when we get a couple of injuries at the back. Selling Kalou or Malouda will be good especially if it's part of the Modric deal, but we shouldn't sell both...squad depth.
unknown2022
Why the hell are we trying for meireles?
lukamolski
we shouldnt really be selling if we dont get replacements. @lukamolski i dont see it either why meireles... still scratching mi head
tj_blues
hazard said a couple of hours ago that he'll stay at Lille tj_blues
TheWorldIsOurs26
oh and who says we won't get replacements ? I think we need to offload players cause we're not allowed to get another foreign player in our squad.
TheWorldIsOurs26
This meireiles link is stupid.
Dannism
@TheWorldIsOurs26 ... haha before mata came to chelsea 24/48hr before he said he wernt gonna leave valencia n now.... dont believe everything tht cmes out these footballers mouth just saying. and if we do sell malouda who r we gonna get withing 48hrs to replace him in the squad ... someone who would play number 2 to mata... answer me this ?ion
tj_blues
Wenger's interest in Alex is a no-brainer. Benayoun, a good player who's been given almost no opportunities at Chelsea, would give Arsenal something they lack in terms of experience and maturity. Malouda--same thing. Chelsea certainly shouldn't sell to make Arsenal stronger--not for those low sums anyway.
RadioactiveD
Wenger as our rescuer; Malouda, Benayoun and Alex... he could have Kalou as well, as far as I'm concerned.
Maestrinho
I dont care about the rest but Alex shouldnt be sold, Benayoun already tweeted he's leaving
chelseafanafrica
Rescuer, Maestrinho? Show a little respect. The players you insult are all good players, especially Alex.
RadioactiveD
I myself have a personal grievance with Wenger and i want him to take his money elsewhere. I dont believe we should be helping our rivals strengthen. Business wise i guess giving them Benayoun is alright but Slo Mo and Alex are good players and should stay at the bridge.
nashe9
whats everyones problem with mierles? we have no cover in CM except for Josh
NJ Blues
no way Alex and Malouda to gunners. if we do that it bites us back later. sold them to Italy that´s ok. I´m not sure if sales Alex is wise move. it leaves as short without replacement. @NJ Blues.. AVB sold last year Mereiles to Pool. firstly he´s injured and secondly why would he want to buy back mediocore player who´s sub at Pool. and @ FrLamp - can you confirm this : According to television networks like HLN and many other Dutch and Belgian sources, Chelsea have reportedly agreed to a fee €10M for 20 year old Belgian Kevin De Bruyne.
CFCblue.est
the last two days of the transfer window will come enough insane :)
CFCblue.est
NJ Blues we have Lamps, Rami, Mikel, Romeu, McEchran and Modric is comming
icebluelg
Malouda? I see no problem with sending him anywhere except that we will be back to a single left-footed wing. Had we kept Yuri then "adios Flo!". As is stands, and Malouda goes, it would seem that there is a slight disconnect with the Board and their thinking (all of this is predicated on not signing another left-footed wing). Selling Alex- HUGE mistake (recall last November if you need to ask why). Yossi?- I just don't understand why he is not on the pitch. He and Yuri were far and away the most creative offensive players we had during the pre-season. I simply don't get how Lamps and Malouda are retained over Yuri and Yossi. But then again, our offense has been so stellar, creative and overwhelming through the first three matches....
rockhead
Feck mireiles.if he ends up at chelsea i will be very worried n disappointed...i pity wenger though he should respect our players..7 and 8mil????????he ain't prepared for any serious buys...give me 15 for malouda n i won't mind whether they r rivals or not..same with kalou.
chelc.always
Malouda is not worth £15m or even £8m. He is worth £5m tops. 31yr old for £15? Lol.. He aint no Zidane
foreign_viewer
Only player I would sell is Kalou. Others I will keep as long as we dont have the replacement. If we let go 4 experienced players and buy 1 then our squad is terribly thin. Squad depth is required to compete for the full season all fronts. Malouda, Alex and Benayour all are useful players. Benayoun never got the chance he deserved here.
Keyser Soze
transfer is sure picking up pace..
chelsea44
now following their impressive display at old trafford.i strongly believe they would recruit at least two of our push overs so that their team would be more enchanting to watch.
11bandwagon
If benayoun wants to leave for regular football then we should let him go, but for nothing less than £10m. I won't be too keen on us selling malouda without having a replacement first, but he should go for at least £10m too. Why is kalou not at lille already ffs?! And wtf are we bidding for meireles & perreira for? Especially meireles, the porto & cesspool castoff!
MidasTouchJay
Elia of Hamburg prefers EPL. is he a right or left winger? He is available at low cost
vinay
i would rather have Malouda bombing forward on the left for the gunners than Arshavin.
Tat
Why is going for meireles a bad thing? He scored a load of goals and was voted liverpools player of the year. He also looked good when he came on last week. If he and Modric come I would see meireles maybe taking lampards role! And ain't that what every one wanted on here? Lampard benched? I'd take meireles,Modric and pereira in this transfer window easy.
ChelseaHeadHunter
Guyz,what's ur take on this Van der Weil rumour? €32? For a fullback?
Dannism
Why would Chelsea sell Malouda,he's got off to a flyer this season scoring the winner against West Brom and on Saturday he swiched the play to Frank for Bosingwa to score and don't forget last season he was statistically the best player in the entire Premiership.
THEBREEZE
Looks like the last few days of the transfer window is going to be franatic. I for one do not believe Modric will come to Chelsea as Levy is adamant for his ego sake that he will not sell him to Chelsea. It is to the detriment of Tottenham as many players and even Harry has said moving him on is the wisest thing to do, but oh well. As for Meireles, I think that he is an ok buy as long as we don't pay more than 10 million for him. He is Portuguese and I am sure AVB can get the best out of him (like bosingwa). Athought I am not a big fan of Malouda, I do not think selling him without bringing in a replacement is a wise thing with the long season ahead. The only 1 player I think we should sell is Kalou now that we have Sturrdige back. I would love to see Modric come to the Bridge though, but I dont think it will happen, maybe in Jan, but not now
Schiffer
Just close the damn window! I'm sure if we don't get Modric there will be modric to Chelsea in january rumours the rest of the year!
Rune3k
@ ChelseaHeadHunter, I fully agree with you that Meireles was quite decent last season. He was in a lacklustre Liverpool side (for much of last season until Kenny took over) and he still performed decently. He would be a good alternative to have in the middle of the park, is he a worse player then Lamps? I don't think so, t least paying 10 million? for him would be better than over paying 40 million for Modric. It's going to be a long long 2 days. I really hope we sign someone in the AM/CM role so that we have alternatives. Looking at both the Manchester clubs, I don't think we can challenge very strongly if we don't buy anyone else. But, if AVB took this season to bed in the youngsters and phase out the oldies, I would readily accept this season as a transitional phase (maybe win the FA Cup, League Cup and challenge strongly for the EPL and Champs League).
Schiffer
Meireles is not coming. AVB ditched him at Porto, he wont ask him back now. Modric is very likely...after the weekend Levy seems to have concurred Modric wont be of much worth to them because his heart/heads not in it.. ..best to cash in now at top dollar. kevin de bruyne will take malouda's spot.
mza
With Arsenal performances, I think those players mentioned would rather stay in Chelsea as a sub.
supportBLUEyouth
Whinger raid he can have Kalou if he wants Yossi I am not so sure about.
Elbowz
merlin, is it possible to have one transfer dealine day article? like a match day moments kind? so the last 2 days all transfer discussions can be done there? would be really appreciated.

I think beanyon is gone, Kalou may go, but Malouda is going nowhere
Realmike
MidasTouchJay - what the hell are you on mate pure and simple yossiwas bought for 5-5.5mill hasn't played that much and you want 10mill for him lol..... i bet you were asking 100mill sheva when he was on the bench as well wasn't you..... damn!!!! and as for meireles reports are saying we rejected 8mill plus yossi lets face it you lot haven't watched him much if you dont think his worth having in the team the fact of the matter is that we have so many midfielders at the moment that kenny doesn't know wants out best midfield yet plus meireles picked up a silly injury during pre-season so isn't completely match fit which is why he is on the bench so this apart from the injury he has now which they think he will be back after the internationals have finished but hey i think if AVB wants him then his looking at straight cash 12-13mill or sturridge plus a few mill which your be mad to do......
muffdaddy1983
Guys i 8-2 be the one to inform u but breaking news on bbc has it that wenger has left ass-anal on mutual termination of his contract hahaha http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/arsenal_mutual_termination_wenger_contract_14703034.stm
MidasTouchJay
stoke in talks with you lot with taking lukaku on loan could be a good idea....
muffdaddy1983
Just a joke anyways before you all jump on me, just wanted to use 8-2 & arsenal in one sentence again lol. Muffdaddy we are the selling club, so don't we get to chose how much we'll sell him for? You have to put his wages & cost of his treatments during his long injury spell into consideration as well. Plus we are kinda lacking creativity in our mf right now & he's one of our most creative players, why should we sell him for a measly £8m?
MidasTouchJay
Realmike, I think you are right. Benayoun is already gone, Kalou might be going, Alex I am not too sure but would love him to stay and whether you like it or not Malouda is going nowhere!
bluemillionaire
I prefer Lukaku to stay back and give Torres competition so that he does not get complacent with the unavailability of Drogba.
bluemillionaire
lukaku on loan why o ******** why??we were all looking forward to seeing him bang a few for us ..these last few rumours perrira,merles(bloddy hell why???),van der wiel,selling of yossi FFS AVB wht ur playing on to???we have a player to get excited abt dont take tht away plzzzzzzzzzz
kishaloy_nag_blue
midsastouchjay - it doesn't matter 10mill is way to much for a player that doesn't play believe me i never wanted yossi to leave in the first place but he is now a year older and hasn't played so you wont get the 10mill for him..... anyways i wouldn't let any of our players go to arsenal not even poulson or cole due to the fact they deserve everything they get.... wenger should have seen last season and even the season before that it wasn't working but hey thats what you get.... we went through it when benitez pushed out alonso,yossi and mascherano we leanrt by losing out on the champions league now every player we want just added 5mill to the price of not being in european cups
muffdaddy1983
Hmm i'd rather sell them to lille. Malouda & Benny can go but Alex is i'd rather not sell. We would have just 3 cbs then- that worries me a bit.
addictedtoblue
Haha why are ppl getting carried away with some of these rumours. Once they are confirmed we can all get stressed. I think we are looking at Meireles as a short term fix and if we can get him for 7-8 million then i say why not. I'm still hoping we get Modric though.
addictedtoblue
It be in everyones best interest if malouda left. Please let this be true
vok_julle
Before we proceed, Let us give a one minute silence for the sudden demise(in terms of competition) of Arsenal.
bluemillionaire
@MidasTouchJay that's just childish
bluecolombian
The Lukaku to Stoke is an intelligent move. He will be there for 6 months, in which he will be able to play continuously and will be able adapt the pace of PL. Once he comes back, he will be a better(in terms of PL) and remember Drogba will be away for ANC. In the mean time, Sturridge will get ample playing time, in all terms excellent move I say.

Lukaku and Stoke City-a marriage made in heaven.

before lukaku signed he said he wasnt interested in signing if we were gonna send him out on loan. WTF let him just fight for his shirt with torres and didi who r not even firing atm. not liking this ****y new i'm hearing

we should sell kalou 2 lille, benayoun 2 arsenal and keep alex and benayoun...i strongly believe we will regret it if kalou goes to arsenal
bluedeal
BREAKINGNEWSKYSPORTS- prem league rules doesnt allow lukaku to go out on loan to stoke
tj_blues
its states a club cnnot buy a player and then loan him in the same window. but if we still wanna loan him in Jnuary we can. but tht aint happening since Didier leaves for ACN in january.
tj_blues
We shouldn't sell anyone to our rivals. If we improve their teams (yes I know Malouda isn't an improvement) then they could make life harder for us. I would rather we sent Malouda to France or Italy and we brought in another winger. If we can get Modric by offering Kalou and Benayoun then we should go for it but I'm not sure the spuds will want to sell at the last minute.
blu4life
arsenal are desperate lets inflate the prices of our players..this is our chance to get something out of them...and lukaku to stoke is an insult.
chelc.always
Whats that @tj-blues, what about tiabut?
LeyemovicH
Cannot buy & loan out in the same window? How about courtois then? Bluecolombian i can't remember seeking your opinion!

Apparantly there is a rule which means a player cant be loaned to another PL club in the same window they've been bough. Outside PL as Courtois or Avila you can.

Modric on Chelsea move: "It's nothing new and probably will not be anything. As things stand now, I stay at Tottenham".
CFCblue.est
I'd put money on not one Chelsea player joining Arsenal. Alex to Arsenal would never happen.
jackstan
modric wont be coming to chelsea, we need to face reality on this. Levy is making a point, chelsea should stop wasting their time or at least the tabloids should stop stoking the fire. Apparently liverpool would be willing to make a deal for meireles if sturridge is involved but imo that would be a bad idea. Kalou? oh yes.
gyverblues
BarclaysEPLTalk (Premier League): Chelsea are planning on signing THREE players before the end of the transfer window.

meireles in my opinion aint worth we really need but with the spanish players in the squad i guess they could develop an understanding with him there....
nelyvanile
AVB said that Florent is NOT for sale.
CFCblue.est
meireles would be a good squad addition but we need a first team regular with something special, we have enough squad players for midfield. Would meireles be regular? would a £10m player keep lampard on the bench? Where would josh fit in with lamps, meireles, and a possible AM around? Not too mention the other mids in the squad....the joys of the transfer window...
gyverblues
davila has gone on loan....the last time i checked....

CFCblue.est,jackstan pal it seems we r f*** then we spent all summer trying to sign mod and then NOW nothing FFS,my guess is we will sign perrira(??),de brryne and may be meriles(hope not) out will be KALOU and yossi and may be alex
kishaloy_nag_blue
I´m hopeful Sheva, even on the Chelsea TV tomorrow there will be special 4hr show "Transfer Deadline Day". it means there must be something going on.

Blue Bezerkas
I think after the frenzy January's deadline created, our board plotted to leave it to the end this summer for that revenue. I wont be suprised to see us signing Modric and Hazard tommorow. I have got a feeling that Modric has already been agreed days or even weeks earlier. Our board and Spuds will just announce it at the right moment.
Diego_rodriguezz
CFCblue.est I have read the articel and it was a realy good read. For the present I rate Modric as a better target, but for the future I find a combination of Gotze and McEchran just outstanding and a much better one to the Modric one. The number 31 is free at cfc and he can take the number 8 when Lamps retires. Personally I would preffer Gotze, but still think we are getting Modric.

Disappointing oversight. As it often is with Chelsea.

@icebluelg, I´m sure he´s ready for to play in PL. Next summer his price will be 50+ M£.

It wil be great if we got hazard, hazard left mata right they can both interchange as well? But the hazard rumours seem pretty far off from the modric and perriera ones.
lukamolski
Who will be worth 50 million next year?
lukamolski
Is it possible we'll contemplate selling Sturridge to Pool for Meireles?
Carefree_1990
@ lukamolski .... Mario Götze from Dortmund Borussia.

CFCblue.est
What's this absolute BS about Hazard?
Carefree_1990
Gotze and Hazard -- both. Gotze - to provide killer passes. Hazard - to make the mockery of PL defences, i hope we sign Gotze, modric and Hazard
BlueBoyChelsea
None of Goetze or Hazard's leaving. Why are we even discussing them?
Carefree_1990
Aghhhh, we are being silly with this Modric situation, everything above 30M is stupid. Let them have unsettled, unhappy player, next year they will beg for 15M!!!
che-l3k1
But i think there is a reason why Di-Matteo went watch Germany-Brazil friendly, it may be that CFC board later understood if Modric deal does not go thru then we must have a back up plan in form of Gotze
BlueBoyChelsea
Gotze doesn't play in cm though, is there a chance he could be coverted like modric was when he went to spurs? Or will we play gotze of the right of the left?
lukamolski
But what's the situation with Sturridge? AVB considering losing him too?
Carefree_1990
Gotze can leave and so can hazard they both have buyout clauses.
lukamolski
And both players said they're happy at their current clubs so none will be actually leaving. Do u know anything abt Sturridge being included in the Meireles deal?
Carefree_1990
Looks like Arsenal have landed Mertesacker - that should end their interest in Alex.
UpTheChelsea
If we get Gotze and Hazard 2mrw then i am more than happy...cant complain..its the best thing that could happen on deadline day...Gotze can play anywhere in midfield so i think our midfield issue will be resolved if we sign gotze and as a gift Roman presents us Hazard too then u r the best ROMAN, love u
BlueBoyChelsea
Carefree that is a joke started by spuds for modric and liverpool for Meireles.
vinay
Don't see chelsea spending 35 million on a 19 yr old.
lukamolski
what a unrealistic specualtion : Sturridge (21) is worth at least £25M and Meireles (29) max. £15M. how can you say that Sturridge + cash for Meireles. It´s bulls..t!!
CFCblue.est
As I see this, Mikel/Romeu dm, Gotze would play box to box/cam, McEchran playmaker/cm, Mata rwf, Hazard lwf and Torres forward. Though Goetze and Hazard both seem very unlikely, but lets wait for the next 30,5 hours, we might get a surprise.
icebluelg
Wouldnt even sell Turnbull to Arsenal,feck them.They get every player for peanuts & expect us to oblige.2 players definitely needed for us,a RW & playmaker.Modric aint coming though.
Chelsea24/7
I don't see us getting both, the 2 signings will be modric and perriera at the end of the window. I will shoot myself if we buy meireles.
lukamolski
Price can be negotiated to 30m and remember at some point of time chelsea were willing to pay 30m on Neymar lad, so its altogether depends upon the manager if he has faith in a player that he can be good value for money then why not, otherwise why on earth dimatteo will go to see GER-BRA friendly
BlueBoyChelsea
@icebluelg Gotze to play box-to-box, what have you been smoking these days?
BlueBoyChelsea
Neymar buyoutclause is no 39 million chelsea are not willing to pay that. Last year is was 25 million and chelsea won't willing to pay that.
lukamolski
two mistakes we did last year is not paying 30M euros for Neymar and 24M for Saurez.
vinay
Well selling Alex would've seemed equally impractical a few days back, now it's a distinct possibility. Never say never, but thnx anyway relieved to know that's BS.
Carefree_1990
This year chelsea offered Santos 30m for Neymar at the begining of transfer window.
BlueBoyChelsea
AVB said they are looking such a young talent like Lukaku and others. We all know Di Matteo was in Stuttgart watching Brazil vs Germany game. and he wasn´t there for watching Neymar. there´s no more any player who could be intersting to CFC. €35M for Götze in this transfer or £50+M in next, which one is cheaper. next summer will be intersted all top clubs like ManU, MCity, Barca, Real. Arsenal already tried their luck, but their offer wasn´t enough good.
CFCblue.est
30m for Gotze is worth considering,
BlueBoyChelsea
And who'd Borussia replace a player of his stature with, so late in the window now? Never will happen.
Carefree_1990
@BlueBoyChelsea my bad, talking to a friend on the phone and wrote something that I didn't mean. I'm not a football genuis, but as I see it he would be a direct replacement for Lamps.
icebluelg
No other club will match the 35million so why would chelsea?
lukamolski
@Carefree_1990 cfc could loan them Kakuta or McEcharan, though as we know Josh isn't going on loan and I am also disappointed that Davila is going on loan to Vitesse, would preffer him to go somewhere else.
icebluelg
Goetz wont be sold this year. BVB now thinks they are a big club like Tottenham and their director has said that they are not a selling club. but fact is when RM comes calling they will sell for less than 10 M.
vinay
@ lukamolski ... they all think that maybe they can him next year cheaper. we all witnessed what happend with Neymar.
CFCblue.est
Gotze is not for sale this season, his agent confirmed he will stay. It wont be a small fee for Gotze, vinay, unless he has a year left on his contract like Sahin.

there was few weeks ago quote from BVB CEO. he said they will not sell him at any price to Bayern Müncen. and he said that there´s only 3-4 clubs in the world where BVB can agree to sell him.

When next summer city offers them 45m or real gets him for 25m, then you will be the first one to complain why CFC board did not pay them 30m for gotze. you have to understand that although we are very popular club but we still lags behind RM,Barca and ManU in terms of elite club status, if CFC, RM, MANU, BARCA all are interested in same player what the preference of choice that player will be having ask yourself, u will get the answer m sure.

CHELSEA FIRST OF SPECULATED 3 SIGNING IS PERRIERA FROM PORTO.
arun.superstar18
deadline day jokes : Chelsea have completed signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in a deal worth 30m...how i wish this confirmed by chelsea website..lol..:P
chelsea44
Modric deal is dead according to a 'reliably informed' BBC journo.
jackstan
PERRIERA IS CLOSE TO JOIN CHELSEA.
arun.superstar18
If Kalouless or Yosser go, I for one won't lose anysleep. Alex, don't mind really, hardly Bobby Moore, same could be said for Ivanovic, both have made two almighty c.ck ups that have led to goals. It doesn't help when Terry's lack of pace is almost non-existent now, that's where we're gonna struggle.
Teds Maybank Holiday
@jakstan: yeah i also saw that in twitter, so who are we going to sign in that creative midfield?
chelsea44
It looked that way for long, not much of a shock. So are we finally bidding for Sneijder???
Carefree_1990
well jackstan in tht case say hello to raul merles
kishaloy_nag_blue
Sealing Meireles deal won't be that easy either. Too much hard feelings between us and Pool still. Maybe they'll ask for something ridiculous.
Carefree_1990
GOETZ OR GANSO. Sneijder will cost us 35M and his wages will be 40M for 4 years so he is very costly. or Javi Martinez
vinay
I also heard that Granero is as good as Modric. But he is not getting enough playing time at real madrid
vinay
Why AVB is doing a Benitez? if we don't get Mod or gotze or snjeider then fine we can use yossi, we dont need merieles, soon to be grand pa
BlueBoyChelsea
Something tells me squad'll stay same on September 1 as it now is. Grateful to board for the Mata signing. And the effort to sign Modric was good, much appreciated. And we also got on board a lot of future prospects. Good sensible deals, all.
Carefree_1990
Second that BlueBoyChelsea. Losing Yossi without buying a replacement would be an act of ultimate stupidity.
Carefree_1990
AAAND the Mail claims Luka's move to the Bridge is inching closer. Who is actually in the know, I wonder?
Carefree_1990
@carefree_1990 i have the same s***t feeling as you man! dont know why but i really dont think that there will be one in! one hour ago i thoight it could be happen something but now... I also heard much more voices who told me that the modric deal is dead...but i do think that we NEED a player of his quality...
austriablue
Either way expect a much needed playmaker to arrive at Stamford Bridge. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2031762/Premier-League-club-club-guide-transfer-window.html#ixzz1WWg6WN00
Carefree_1990
do you have a link to this one??
austriablue
please make an article deadline day transfer would really love to see it Merlin..as what @rishab is also suggesting..:)
chelsea44
Chelsea need to make a big midfield signing if they want to win the title, simple as that.
jackstan
@carefree, i think we will add some1 at least one more signing is pending for sure, lets see.
BlueBoyChelsea
something reminds me of torres deal where it seemed off until liverpool secured replacements in carrol and suarez maybe the same is true of parker going to spuds
Blue Bezerkas
And :D Sportske Novosti report that Ivan Klasnic says his Croatia team-mate Luka Modric has told him he is going to stay at Tottenham. This was Soccernet. I need to see a shrink. :D :D
Carefree_1990
totally agree with chelsea44 and jackstan by the way:-))
austriablue
BluesChronicle 'News breaking of the expected new Modric bid: Chelsea have reportedly offered Spurs cash (not quantified) plus Benayoun. More when I get it.' This is going to be a long 30 odd hours!
jackstan
The Mail promises us a playmaker though. ;) I am cheering up already. What a doofus that Klasnic is, you shouldn't talk these things to the press. :'(
Carefree_1990
neither malouda not alex shoulw be let go. yossi and kalou should be sold by all means. the former too should not be sold because if we have defensive injuries we would need those backups. remember we are competing on 4 fronts and players need rest. alex and malouda would do well for the FA and League cup games (and i hope we win both). Alex and Malouda can feature, that would give a break to Terry, Ivanovic, and maybe to Cole and def. to Mata. Now regarding the latter 2:Yossi and Kalou-we simply dont need them, especially Kalou. Since we have Lukaku and now Daniel coming back, its time to cash in on Kalou. Though, I hope Kalou moves to France or somewhere else, not England.
