If he’s that good I’d say Chelsea will be holding on to him.

No it's not. NDJ doesnt fit Pep's system nor does a player like Kante. He doesn't want/need a traditional holding midfielder.

I think Pep has it sorted. We need craftsman, not workman.

Let’s get this right . Reece James was a defender at Chelsea,s incredible youth academy and went on loan to Wigan Athletic as a defender . He did ok as a defender for Latics but was given an opportunity to play in midfield. The lad has been incredible in this position and has been voted best in position in the championship. He could easily play Fernandinho,s role or a Nige de Jong role , Pep coaching this lad would be something. Huge engine and strong as fuck unbelievable talent ! How the fuck he is at Wigan god knows but all the big boys are now taking notice .

I can see Pep throwing a curveball with Fernandinho’s replacement. A change in formation whereby we don’t have a DM is not beyond the realm of possibility. Maybe 3 at the back.
I could also see KDB dropping back to be a deep lying playmaker in the Pirlo mold, almost as an old fashioned sweeper like Beckenbauer used to be. He can also put his foot in to break up play if need be. We have so much possession that tinkering like this might then free up a slot in the side for another forward player.

A 19 year old Reece James inspired Wigan Athletic hold top of the league Norwich City to a 1-1 draw last week now the kid MOM performance win away at Leeds United despite being down to 10 men after just 10 minutes . This kid is an unbelievable midfield talent you heard it hear first ! 8-)

I see there’s newspaper talk of Danilo being sold which wouldn’t surprise me. If so Wan Bissoko of Crystal Palace must be a good shout to replace him. Would really produce stiff competition for Walker who needs it.

Gutted if this happens. He is an excellent squad player in my eyes and better than Walker.
If this transfer goes through at least fuck the italians and get 30 mil. Not loan him for 5 seasons with us paying his wages.

Papers also reporting we're in for Hakim Zyech and Joao Felix. Wouldn't mind either but Felix would be a huge gamble given how unproven he is and his price tag (120M). Zyech would be a steal at 25m but the worry is whether he can produce in an actual league and not just the Dutch league.

He's a good squad player, but we can do better and/or younger. He's looked lackluster in as many games as he's been good. Zinchenko should get a much better deal and I'm fine with seeing Danilo leave.

Want to get more than the touted €22M though.

Journos saying Otamendi is leaving this summer. Not surprising.
Mase, first Aleks and now Nico. Sorry man.

CBs apparently Stones, Laporte, Garcia, Kompany, and a new signing.

Absolute joke if we let him go. Especially with if likely that Komps will go.

Why is it a joke? If it's TRUE it seems Garcia is being promoted and nico replaced by a new signing.

He’s a bit too good to be a 4th choice defender really so can’t blame him if he wants out

Because "it's a squad game" as we keep getting told. He was our best defender last season and hasn't done anything wrong this season.
