I would expect us to do the same should we be faced with something similar & then rape the market during the appeal process like our amigos in Spain although I don't know the terms and whether we would be allowed to do that..........?

The problem is that Chelsea are not allowed to sign anyone even though they are still appealing the decision. Purlisic (doc?) looks like being their only signing and if Hazard goes they’ve got one hell of a job on their hands

That's presumably because it's a domestic ban? I remember RM having something similar recently - or was it Barca and during the appeal process they stockpiled . Agree that Chelsea now have an issue as they will defo lose the appeal and may have to let Hazzard go

I think the rumours with Joao Felix are mental.
Saw him with Frankfurt in the first game and he was good, yes, but has his momentum. In the second leg he was no where near the ball. Paying even 50 mil for him would be chaos.

He is a very talented kid, similar to Kaka, but he is no where near ready to step up. He needs at least on more season at Benfica.

Looking on Citys official site, they are pushing the continued rumour of Rodri from Athletica - not seen a lot of this kid but if he is being tipped to fill Busquetts (sp) shoes in the national side, then that can be no bad thing

City ruling out Fernandes. Clearly a defensive midfielder is coming. They can’t rely on Fernandinho for a whole season. So Ndombele or Rodri? Whether we go for another midfielder depends on the Gundogan situation.

I think it's going to be our busiest summer in a long time. We need to replace the old guard, even if some of them might stick around for another season or two. But don't forget there's sword of Damocles in a potential transfer ban.

So if Gundo, Komps and Otter all leave, plus Silva, Fern and Aguero getting a bit long in the tooth, we really need to do a lot of deals. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that we get it right.

I keep hearing about this potential transfer ban. Anybody warrant a guess when we might actually find out if there will or will not be one? Or is that at UEFAs leisure and we will hear the day before the window opens.

It’s been awfully quiet recently. Get ready for or to start gathering pace again before our final game on Sunday!

All the news has been around Chelsea taking UEFA to CAS over their ban. I wonder if they are waiting for that to play out first before giving us ours. Even if they do give us one, we will appeal and it will delay it one window.

First Sam Lee backtracked on Bruno Fernandes and now James Ducker is doing the same with Chilwell transfer.

They are just making sure they can claim to be right whatever the outcome. I doubt they know much at this early stage.

We need players to improve our cl form in the latter stages and I don't see any of the players we are linked with doing that. I just see us linked with more of the same players - players who can play nice football at times but when the pressure is on in Europe they wouldn't be expected to be team leaders.

Our current team leaders need replacing soon and Fernandinho, Silva, Kompany, Ottamendi and Walker always seem to have stinkers in the big cl games. They seem to want it to much and put in shite performances. They can't be expected to carry inexperienced players

Looks like Hazard is off to Madrid for 86. mil pounds. Not that much if you look how much Dembele and Cuntinho cost.

I strongly disagree.
2018 we were done by the ref. Home and away. Not even subtle. For ex, Jimmy played Sane onside, etc...
2019 we were done by Var. All the angles were not shown to the Ref.....
2017 more dodgy decisions from the Ref.

If you still doubt that this competition is not rotten to the core look at Chelsea Vs. Barcelona in 2009.
Also, have a read re the new proposed 'format' for CL. It is plain as day.

The Champions league is highly dependent on luck, take Spurs for example, 12 defeats in all comps since the turn of the year and yet could be the second 'best team in Europe'.
