    Zouma - If Kurt's Happy, I'm Happy!

    Glad to hear he's signed a new deal and will be good to see him getting football. However it seems to me Conte doesn't fancy him as part of any of 'his' sides. If so he'd be sending him to a side who play a similar formation and like to play 'football'. Zouma already has the physical attributes but the reason he doesn't work in this side is he isn't good enough on the ball. Unlikely to see that side of his game improve at Stoke but hopefully I'm wrong!

    Andrea Belotti

    I'm really late here as we clearly aren't signing Belotti. But this is a general question about his situation. Does anyone have any idea why his 'foreign club release clause' is £88 million, but Torino are willing to accept much less from a Serie A team? Surely it should be the other way around, what's the advantage of selling him for less to a club that he will be playing for against Torino and most likely scoring goals? I see no logic here.

    I agree and have said this for a while. If Wilshere's game time is managed correctly he could do a job for us 10-15 games a year and he's a cracking player. Good squad depth plus he'll be cheap and is a HG option, should be all over it rather than spending 25-30m on Ross Barkley...

    Alex Sandro

    Juve have already lost Alves & Bonucci, I'd be very surprised if they sold another of last year's defensive starters. Think the fans are already outraged at the Bonucci sale, Sandro would be the tip of the iceberg.

    Alvaro Morata

    Di Marzio saying it's on. Not always reliable but more so than our media counterparts. Confident this will happen

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    For me it shows a level of commitment. It would be a PR disaster if Conte were to leave in the next few months, and being a club that has had several PR disasters in the past I think we're keen to avoid this. He's signed for another 2 years, meaning if he stays that's 3 years in the role. 3 years at Chelsea is seen as longevity really, and Conte doesn't strike me as someone who wants to build a 'dynasty' and be here for 10+ years and that just isn't the way our club works either. I'm hoping for another successful 2 seasons and a serious crack at the Champions League!

    Cesc Fabregas

    This should be sent to every prospective striker we are trying to sign as a bargaining chip. This man will give you goals on a plate if you make the simplest of runs.

    Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    As much as he's done for our club on the pitch he's never had an ounce of respect off of it. Threatened us with transfers on several occasions. Always been outspoken on international duty saying how he wants to go to this club or that club, and the tip of the iceberg for me was his childishness about the China move in January. He was the Premier League top goalscorer playing in the team walking towards the title, what more could you ask for? We should have cashed in then, taken a lot more money and called it a day as he did nothing from January onwards. This latest example of his attitude really does side me towards Conte who clearly has to deal with this fool on a daily basis . Thanks for the goals Diego, fantastic striker on his day but we no longer need players like that at the club.

    Cesc Fabregas

    Bakayoko & Kante in a two man with Cesc in front? Hazard playing just off whoever our striker is? Could be a reason to change to a 3-5-2?

    Sergio Aguero

    No thanks. Give it Michy till end of the season.

    Tiémoué Bakayoko

    It means have some faith. The impatience of Chelsea fans these days is laughable. Have faith in the club to get the deals done, us moaning as fans isn't going to achieve anything. We've been blessed with a fantastic owner and a fantastic infrastructure and coaching staff, we've won 2 of the last 3 Premier League titles, and barring one season have challenged for the last 15. Give it a rest.

    Zouma - If Kurt's Happy, I'm Happy!

    Hope the Valencia link is a loan and not a perm deal. Needs a season of first team football before we sell him, he's barely had any games since his injury and it's hard to say whether it's impacted him long term.

    Charly Musonda jr.

    Pessimistic way to look at it. There's already been 5/6 loans with the likes of Aina, RLC, Brown, Abraham all heading out of the door. Clearly Conte has seen enough in training to integrate Musonda into the squad. He would already have been loaned by now if this were the case, signs are positive.

    Deal is done. On to the next one...
