Luke Shaw wants to leave Man United, with Stoke, Crystal Palace and Newcastle keen to sign the 21-year-old left-back. (Daily Star)
 

Chelsea fan, young and has the potential to be world class. Surely should be looking at him if he becomes available.

Unsure, hasn't seemed the same player since that injury, I think he'd be well behind Alonso. Best for him to go to a lower team and if he performs well for a season or two, go back and grab him then, even if it'll cost a bit more

We do need another LWB and RWB, as Alonso and Moses won't be enough to challenge on all fronts next year, with the extra european games. I'd defintely have Shaw, but it would depend on the price.

Are Ake and Baba not enough cover for LWB? I think we're going to look for a RWB ahead of LWB. Alonso has been better than Moses and we already have cover there. If we're trying to find a replacement for Alonso we've got our priorities mixed up.

 

Beyond Aina we have nobody else to play RWB. Any rumors about a rb I'd take much more seriously than left sided players.

Ake playing cover at LWB is the same as Dave playing cover at RWB. Both very defensive and average in the wing back position, much more effective in the middle. I also highly doubt we'll ever see Baba in a chelsea shirt again, except for the occasional pre season match. Cover and potentially upgrades needed for both sides.

Cover is just that, cover. While thats a great point about Dave being a defensive cover at RWB I think its also the equivalent to Ake at LWB. I think we disagree on Baba, if he's your 2nd option you're doing fine IMO. 

 

What I was getting at was Alonso has offered more than Moses so far and if we're looking to upgrade on one of the two I think Moses needs to be a higher priority. Conte thinks he's great apparently but I'm still not convinced he's good enough if we want to challenge in Europe. Alonso is of that standard for his position, he at least offers a goal threat in addition to defending I'm not sure many other players can match

According to Talksport...JT to be offered another 1 year deal on reduced terms...Hazard to sign a contract extension and Christenson to return to our first team squad...

In view of how little he has played so far this season, I'm not sure this would be a good decision for him or the club.

Only if it's tied into a coaching role? I agree it does give him a dilemma if he wants to carrying on playing...but I'm sure he wouldn't want to walk away from his team knowing that there's a contract on the table...maybe the coaching dimension is a good face saving and pragmatic way forward...

I don't know how reliable Talksport is, but if all of those stories are true, then it would be fantastic.

I know that JT isn't the player he was, and so does he.  But what he does bring to the table is his leadership, and that can not be overlooked.  I'd imagine, whether on the field or in teh dressing room, he is a positive influence.  He is also a great mentor and ambassador for the youth players looking to break through.

For once, i hope Talksport is right
