'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Big Evening Rumour (14th July)

Its Bastille Day is it not?

Then what better way to start our new series than to bring to you the news that a certain Edinson Cavani want out of French football!

Cavani is unhappy with life in the French capital fearing the infamous French guillotine has harmed his chances of playing as a natural striker.

Seemingly the PSG boss, Laurent Blanc, had intimated that a rotation policy would exist in future but now this looks increasingly unlikely its being reported that Cavani has instructed his agent to set sail, away from the French capital, to the Premier League.

Naturally, two clubs (as is always the case in gossip like this) are mentioned - Manchester United and Chelsea.

However, did the ship setting sail for the Thames leave before Cavani expressed this desire to eat more sumptuous cake with Diego Costa on board?

If so, then will the Red devils take this fleeing infidel?

no way cavanni pls stay there and win ballon doir
who cares about cavani now....he is feeling jealous i think so that suarez went for 75 million thats why all this drama...the way psg are buying players they will take over fifa playstation one day in the future...i think french league should declare psg as the champion before the start of the season and the rest should play for the second place...
Who tha hell is Cavani again ?????????????????
Cavani has stuffed himself the same way Torres has, too expensive on transfer and wages. Would still like him though. He needs a venture where he can get his teeth into (no Saurez pun intended LOL!), PSG obviously does not float his boat. With a new direction, he could revert to his former form, unlike Torres.
No hulk rumours? Not a transfer window without a hulk rumour.
The summary of Cavanis value is shown in his performances for Uruguay when Suarez was suspended and his performances against top notch competition for PSG when Ibra was injured. In both cases he was anonymous. The guy is just a money chasing mercenary. We should certainly have nothing to do with this fella. If ManU are crazy enough to spend a fortune to get him from PSG thats up to them..we should be smarter than that. For me retaining Lukaku , selling Ba and somehow finding a way to release El Nino or keeping him virtually bench bound and then getting someone like PEA (Pierre emery Aubemyang) or Firmino is the way to go
He will not be cheap so let United take a gamble on him ,besides it will knock Rooney's nose out of joint .

we should buy fred and jo to give some competition to that he will get some boost that it's not end of the world and miracles happen & there are worse striker in this world than him...i hope that will give his self confidence back...
Lol I am liking shlok lately. And no to Cavani. He had his chance, but according to him "chelsea did not do enough" to employ his services. Now he expects us to bail his ass out of being unhappy. Don't get me wrong a player should try to make as much money as possible and be a mercenary, but there are limitations. He wanted to go there and play for PGA now let him dig himself out instead of relying on our former interest in him.
I don't see cavani moving, i believe he's only trying to get some kind of assurances from psg. He has found it pretty difficult to upstage Ibra and had to make do with coming from the flanks. Though he can send his agent all he likes but we won't consider him one bit. We have our marquee striker now and his name is Diego Costa boyy!
Does anyone know what PSG pays him a week?
Costa is that marquee CF. Cavani's never gonna happen. If Lukaku is loaned out again or sold and Ba leaves for China, it will be wise to get a different kind of CF like Firmino or Mauro Icardi.
I don't see United getting him with RVP, Rooney and Welbeck all staying. Maybe Liverpool, as all they do these days is to buy CFs.
you don't think costa is a marquee CF? @samex
We need to retain Lukaku as No.2 or find a someone less flashier. Cavani will be too expensive. With Costa on board, this looks a non starter.
schlok , by your argument...Chelsea should sign shlok27
Sources close to Real Sociedad say that Chelsea are close to signing Antoine Griezmann.
Chelsea could be hijacking Arsenal's Khedira deal
Agent_Edward 18h Breaking news: Angel Di Maria's transfer to PSG is done deal. Fee around €58m #psg. This guts are certainly not taking FFP serious..
*these guys are certainly not taking...
f9RealSociedad 10m Chelsea is about to sign Real Sociedad's striker Antoine Griezmann for 25m£
f9RealSociedad 10m Chelsea is about to sign Real Sociedad's striker Antoine Griezmann for 25m£
f9RealSociedad 1m Real Sociedad and Chelsea are going to play 2 friendly matches (this summer and the next) this is part of the deal.
If we were really going to buy a winger like Griezmann for £25m, why didn't we sign Sanchez or even go all out for Reus or DiMaria.
TransferInside_ 1d Real Madrid have agreed to sell Di Maria to PSG and have agreed deals for Rodriguez and Falcao. # RMFC
Griezzman is decent but I personally think Schurrle is better. They are both similar as they're both wing forwards. But if this rumour is true, then why the hell did we waste money on Salah? Salahs never looked like a Chelsea player from day one.
Costa: "@Torres is a great player, I know I will have to fight hard and I like it. So I think it will be a clean & healthy competition. # CFC
Costa: "The Premier League is a league in which I wanted to play for a long time and I think it will be a very good & fast adaptation. #CFC
Griezmann? Why do we need Salah then? What of Willian too? Schürrle surely has jumped them or will plus Antoine won't come here to get the Mata and De Bruyne treatment.
Same, right about preferring Sanchez and Reus
Just like Barca influenced Spain and Bayern with Germany, Chelsea have decided to influence France not England. Lololol. Links to Rabiot, Pogba, Varane, Mangala & Griezmann popped that into my mind.
mangala is overrated, he's not much better than Luiz. How can someone who's behind Sakho be worth £32M? Rabiot seems like a decent young talent, but we have enough of those. Varane isn't needed when we have zouma/kalas. Griezmann isn't needed when we have schurrle/willian and then for some reason Salah. I honestly think Pogba's overrated. £60M is way too much for someone that's not even world class yet.
I dont trust most of these rumors. Silly talk. Just remember that Fabregas was signed out of the blue. He is just one of many who was signed like that for Chelsea. Not many ended being true after all the news gossip.
We better have plenty extinguishers at the ready this season at the club,as I expect Torres to be on fire once the season starts.
Fabregas wasn't signed out of the blue. Once it became apparent that Barca were selling him we were linked with him straightaway alongside arsenal/city/united. The only players we sign out of the blue are the random youngsters we keep getting like that Pasalic guy and that Barca trainee.
Costa is not a marquee player. Sign Cavani.
Guys are funny. Do you think we'll sign all the players we are linked to?
Cavani will be a waste of money. He is better off at other rival clubs. His worth is 20m max. Anything more than that is a waste. Lukaku is much better than him.
Why do some of you get worked up with the players linked to CFC? We can't sign everyone, some just hear a rumour and start reigning abuse on the board and Jose, if we do sign every player linked to us by the media we should have had, Ronaldo, Messi, Ribery.... An endless list I would say!
Ive also noted the style of comments is such that the posters comment is gospel. what he says is so unchallengably correct it would be an offence to even disagree..few are humble by saying that for example "My opinion is ..." or " I think.." and then to follow it up with reasoned explanation wih "..because...." or they go into abuse suggesting that they know better than the board ...its so monotonous makes it not worth reading
for example...not tat Im picking on FV .. well maybe I am lol ...but FV in what way is " Costa is not a marquee player" and why is Cavani better ?
Cavani? Waste of money! Its not happening
Gabriel Ofunuel
Lukaku will sign the extension and will be sent to UCL playing team on loan (Possibly Roma). We will get Costa, Aubamyeng, Torres as 3 strikers. If Drogba news is true, then we will have 4 strikers.
@ Blu Run to say the FOOLISH ONE is better than Cavani is laughable to put it mildly. Jeez you must be smoking something seriously cheap. Cavani is up there with some of the best guys in the business and the COMPLETE ONE is still a raw learner... upstaged by another 19 year old learner. Cavani to chelsea would have been a wonderful addition before Costa deal but now, we don't need him again. that ship has sailed. he is trying to leave PSG because of lack of playing time in his prefered role but the same would apply to any top club here with the exception of Arsenal but having splashed out 32m on Sanchez, i don't think they would be going out to sign a player for around 40m that PSG would certainly request and on an insane wage. Man U can probably afford him but they have two very good strikers on insane wages already. He has probably missed his chance to ever play for any top 3 PL clubs by his move to PSG. He better wait until Ibrahimovic retires if he wants that no 9 spot
no! no!! no!!! we dont need him again. wen we did, he didnt need us & now dat he need us, we akready av som1 in Diego Costa
no! no!! no!!! we dont need him again. wen we did, he didnt need us & now dat he need us, we akready av som1 in Diego Costa

@bluemel: Fv is joking. He's a comedian..... Speaking on his behalf. Lol
I didn't say Cavani is better but Costa alone will not save Chelsea.
Actually, to a point, I agree with FV, we need another similar quality striker to Costa. Ba looks to be going, and Lukaku is going to end up who knows where, but I am pretty sure it won't be with Jose. Which leaves Torres. We need another, and Cavani would be ideal, notwithstanding the financial outlay required. We cannot rely on Torres to come good 4th year of asking.
