The BBC say the fee could rise to as much as £150 Million :oops:

I’m guessing that’s based on incentives like winning league titles, Champions League etc.. even so, for a player with less than a year on his contract and Madrid refusing to pay more than £90 Million, that’s a pretty good result for Chelsea.
With a transfer ban as well. How are you feeling about next season?

Not too bad, long term anyway. The transfer ban doesn't mean much, Chelsea haven't been able to attract top players for years. It's not like we'd of signed Jovic, Dybala, De Jong, Felix, De Ligt etc.. my guess is they would probably end up with Wilson and Zaha, players around that level.

If the rumours are true regarding Lampard coming back and he'll stick with the kids, that's probably the only way Chelsea can improve on being in the battle for top 4 for the foreseeable future. It's a lot of hard work, growing pains and no guarantee of success at the end of the project, but that's the only option imo. Regardless of any transfer ban. Just a shame Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi won't be available next season, they could of been the two cornerstones of a rebuild but those achilles ruptures are a nightmare to recover from.
 
Mourinho says he’s open to going back to Chelsea.

The day that keeps on giving for you, it seems :oops:
I was reading that earlier. After looking at articles such as ''Manchester United, do they need to start from the ground up or are they just missing a peg or 2?'' Yeah, it's end of season for sure.

Jose doesn't really seem like that attractive of an option now but I still think he will rise again somewhere. You've already had him twice. If he did return, you're probably thinking it is only a matter of time and then the football style. He needs the right players for that style, right? Not the most flexible. He's a funny ol character, find him quite likeable at the minute. Maybe ego has decreased a bit since his stock is not what it was. In hindsight, I'd say he did a good job at United. Just have to keep myself in reality and realize we are not in an era with United dominating or anything You see how we ended up at the end of the season with the current squad. The comments he made about our second place finish look spot on now.

I saw that article too. It was a bit random! They had the top teams in there, then Brighton :unsure: bit niché.

Yeah Jose isn’t an option. I heard Benitez mentioned too, which is just lazy. Abramovich’s issue with Sarri was that some of the fans didn’t get on with him.. Benitez was hated by all Chelsea fans! He actually did pretty well at Chelsea, but he was never going to win over the fans.

It’s a straight choice between Lampard and Allegri I think. Lampard if they want to go with the youth option, Allegri if they want to carry on down the same path and win the odd trophy but be back to square one 2 years down the line. (Which is what I said Man Utd were doing when they appointed Mourinho, short term thinking that would result in an even bigger mess down the line).

Lampard gets my vote. Get that renaming of Stamford Bridge to the “Frank Lampard Stadium” going ;)

Frank is the only choice. The choice of a new generation. :p
 
Atletico Chief says Griezmann is off to Barcelona , So that means Barça is likely to pay the 120m release clause.

Real Madrid signs LB Ferland Mendy from Lyon for 48m + 5m bonus. 60m + 4 for Jovic , 100m for Hazard with bonus that could rise up to 30m more or beyond according to reports , 50m for Militao and 45m for Rodrygo. Last targets will be either Pogba/Eriksen , Most likely Pogba. Madrid is going insane
