Chelsea wait on Alex Sandro to decide his future

Recommended Posts

I follow "Read Chelsea" on FB, i doubt it is true and 60 mill is a lot of money for him.

I was really impressed with him in the opening 45 of the Champions League Final. He's everything you want in a wing back.

I thought Chelsea wouldn't pay 60 million for any player?

That unfortunately rules out every one of Conte's transfer targets considering today's market. 

Our board are stingy, but if they want to make Conte happy, they have to throw in their end. Chinese transfers, league title profits as well as new Nike sponsorship should give us a hefty transfer sum.

Have a look back the last few years and you'll notice Chelsea cap their transfers at £32,000,000

I womder if this could see Alonso converted to a new position.

Think he'll do well in the centre of the bench.

LCB? Could do, he's played there at Fiorentina. Although he isn't a very dominating and aggressive physical presence. Still think him and Sandro (if goes through would be our LWB options.

Well our biggest signing Torres was 50 mill, we never went over that price again.

Cuadrado, Papy, Rahman. Not to say we haven't made ludicrous deals since then. 

Need to make more efficient signings.

 As a general role yeah but not art the expense of buying the right players that are proven and what you need.

I recall reading sometime ago that the Chelsea board had a plan to become self sustainable within a decade, around 2012/13 time. As part of that, it included Abramovich not funding wholly or subsidizing player transfers.

Players he bought back in the spend spend spend era were from his own pocket and then recorded as debt against the club i.e Chelsea owe Roman considerable cash.

However as it stands; he isn't interested in cashing in what he's due given Chelsea is his team. Instead he worked with the board to make the club more profitable without the need for a sugar Daddy.

Hence the frugality in player signings in an increasingly profligate market

Batard once again, has hit the nail on the head. That is why Chelsea is so different to what it was over a decade ago. Not to mention the practice of purchasing young players in attempts to sell them for profit, rather than playing them. You can argue that is an aberration of the spirit of the sport but sadly that is what it has become.

60million for a defender??  ..no wonder we haven't signed him already, thought Mendy was steep at 40million xD

Imagine how we feel at Marseille, Mendy was let go for a modest fee to Monaco because we're run by muppets. If he signs for a club for €40 I'll post my vomit to the Marseille board

Nope, no sell on fee, not that I am aware of. We sold him for around €13m, what a ridiculously low fee. I remember at the time thinking why in Gods name were we letting him go for that and replacing him with 32 year old Bedimo. This is Marseille.

Talk of Chelsea getting Bonucci and Sandro for around £100m.  What I don't understand is, if Dani Alves is on his way to City, why would Juventus dismantle their defence and let both Bonucci and Sandro leave?  All three started the Champions League final, even if they have replacements in mind, it will not be easy to replace three defensive starters all at once.

They do have Rugani who certainly looks quality and ready for regular game time

Sounds like juve pretty much know he's gone and are trying to get as much out of Chelsea as possible.
