Hazard joins Jovic among Galacticos. Both very good deals.
Once Ramos leaves them and Messi retires, I might start preferring Real Madrid in Spain.

Hazard to Madrid confirmed
With a transfer ban as well. How are you feeling about next season?The BBC say the fee could rise to as much as £150 Million
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.
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.With a transfer ban as well. How are you feeling about next season?
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.Mourinho says he’s open to going back to Chelsea.
The day that keeps on giving for you, it seems
I saw that article too. It was a bit random! They had the top teams in there, then Brighton bit niché.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.
Frank is the only choice. The choice of a new generation.I saw that article too. It was a bit random! They had the top teams in there, then Brighton 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
That's what I heard a couple of weeks ago about United. Silly me decided to believe this one was real. Still thinking he is on his way to Barcelona.Good sources have been saying De Ligt is close to PSG. Raiola was seen today in Paris negotiating with our sporting director
Good for him! The Juventus job is as big as it gets for an Italian, plus he’s closer to his family. Not to mention he’s now managing the best player on the planet, linked with moves for Pogba, Icardi, Rabiot, Marquinhos etc..Sarri joins Juventus, their crest now updated.
Who’s your team?Nobody gives a shiit here, but the AFCON starts tomorrow and I think it's going to be a hell of a tournament because unlike last editions, it's organised in summer with all the African stars available.
My home country has a chance to win the whole thing which gives it an extra flavour
I'm from Morocco.Who’s your team?
Yes the winter edition was a bit frustrating, back in the day. Losing Drogba, Essien, Kalou etc.. for long periods wasn’t ideal.
I’ve no idea who the favourites are but I was impressed with Senegal at the World Cup last year. They’ve got some of the best players on the planet at a few positions (Mane, Koulibaly) and some very good players like Gueye.
lol It seems for real this time. Sarri must be loving it. Gonna help Ronnie break more records. He will be hungry for it now, bring the champions league back to Juve.I think there's a drinking game in there somewhere.
He's been linked with about 74 clubs now. Down a shot tomorrow when Arsenal enter the race
Yeah it was a great game! I was flicking between that and the F1. West Indies and New Zealand was tight in the late afternoon game too. The conditions are getting tricky now the pitches are getting worn down and the sun has finally made an appearance.lol It seems for real this time. Sarri must be loving it.

I was flicking through the channels on hat trick ball today. I was reading that Afghanistan were in with a shot against India and I couldn't believe it. Eventually landed on the match. Scenes.
If you would of spent an extra £10 Million, could you of got Two Bissaka instead of Wan?Looks like a fee has been agreed with United and Wan Bissaka. I haven't seen much of him at all, but I am pleased that a position we are struggling in gets filled by the number one target instead of the number five target.
The children are our future. Let them lead the way. That will be two younglings in this summer. Could this be new United? Sticking to a plan. I would definitely take Maguire now. Want this one just to beat City at something again. But nah, he isn't bad at all.If you would of spent an extra £10 Million, could you of got Two Bissaka instead of Wan?
Could be! We're both in similar positions, only real difference is Chelsea can't sign players (and they wouldn't come even if there wasn't a transfer ban). Man Utd have been victims of their own allure I guess, they can sign all these big name players wanting huge salaries because they have the name and the money to do it. Hasn't really worked though. We've had to sign C list players because we can't attract the best.. and unsurprisingly after years of buying average players.. have become mediocre.The children are our future.

You must be hyped for Frank. Already an article on the same page talking about how he won't last long. So much negativity.
Neymar replacement?We're set to get Pablo Sarabia from Sevilla who had a 40 goal contribution in 52 games for them with 13 goals + 13 assist in the league for 18m euros , His release clause jumps to 40m on July 1st and we want to get him before that , He's a CAM
I have seen the rumors , It's a story that the spanish media love to bring for attention. At the moment , I don't really know what's going on , But the things that are clear is that Neymar was a huge investment for us which hasn't worked for us so far , Neither on the pitch cause he has been injured a lot and at a brand level , It was a huge impact , But not at the level of a guy like Cr7. If Barcelona wants him , It's likely they will have to break our world record fee and go beyond to match an acceptable offer , He has 3 years left on his contract , He's on 36.7m per year , So you know he won't take such a big paycut , I doubt we will see him apogalizing for leaving and the lawsuit like it was reported. I saw that they wanted to offer 100m + Coutinho/Dembele which i wouldn't really be satisfied with , Unless Dembele can stay injury free and improve his finishing and become a World beater.On another subject , Sane will be the replacement i will like for LWNeymar replacement?
If he is anything like his football manager performance then that is buying him on the cheap. Worth about 500 m I'd say. But that is a game.Atletico bids 126m for Portuguese wonderkid Joao Felix from Benfica , This was confirmed by the club and they said they’re analyzing the proposal. Just insane
One of Dembélé/Coutinho will be sold, or perhaps both.If Barca want a player, chances are high they will get him. The question is where do they find the money if they want both Neymar and Griezmann. The attack would be stacked as well. Suarez set to move to the bench?
Anyway, I bet @Tiki-Taka isn't pleased at all with either of the two rumors.
I won't complain if he turns out to be a good solution at right back. Sorting out the backline is the top priority. Losing out on Maguire. Says they are talking world record defender fee for selling him. Yeah, it is inflated market. The what players are worth doesn't really exist to me any more. Would I have paid 500k to sign Fred back in 1990? I'm not so sure. But now he is 50m player. Crazy.Lol United signing people I've never heard of for huge sums. The market is so inflated.
