Chelsea’s ban has been upheld. Does that mean they can’t sell players? 

They can still sell I believe but can’t see them parting with Zouma now, looks like Mina has to come good next season.

Is Zouma better than Chelsea’s centre halves? I’d say he is on his performances this season. I’d imagine they would want him to play next season and he doesn’t seem the type to kick up a fuss 

yes he is.  i don't see one of theirs that is better.  Rudiger Luiz Cahil Christensen none of them i'd take over him

Well the real issue is that Cahill and Luiz's contracts are both up in the summer.  Cahill has already said his goodbyes and made his views on Sarri publicly known.  Unsure if they can work some magic with Luiz before than ban goes in place or that means he is off as well (ie possibly somehow sneaking a contract extension through?).  So they would be down two CBs right there.

Christensen and Rudiger are both decent..  Christensen was preferred to Zouma but only got 8 league games this season due to the Luiz/Rudiger partnership.

Their young CB Ampadu got 3 Europa league games and 2 fa cup games this season so seems like they value him but would they value him over Zouma? Probably not? Shrug, not seen Ampadu play.

If they can somehow get Luiz to stay and Zouma wants the switch, we might have a small chance, otherwise: nope.

I’m sure they can resign there current players. I thought they would get this overturned but maybe he wants to sell the club and his interest are elsewhere? It’s the summer window that will kill them not the January one. Especially when hazard goes. United, arse, Chelsea all will be vulnerable to one of us, wolves or Leicester buying well and challenging

If he stays at Chelsea I like to think it's possible that we could see him in our blue in the future. Model pro.

Luiz has been woeful in the Europa this morning, Christensen came off after a soft knock so I can’t imagine Sarri is too happy. Brought on Zapacosta and pushed Azpelacuta (?) into CB, so obviously Cahil and Sarri are done.

Not looking good.

They can’t register new players over the age of 16. Any player they already hold the registration for, like Luiz, they can do with them what they like. If they renew the contract they can do, it’s not resigning them as the registration doesn’t change. 

I don’t want them to sign players as I want them to be in a weaker position so we can try to catch them, especially if they lose Hazard. But I really want us to sign Zouma, I don’t see that happening if the ban stays in place. 

With Luiz, Rudiger, Azpilacueta (I prefer him at centre half than full back) and Christiansen, they really don’t need Zouma. Fingers crossed.

I think this ban is the only think that will keep Sarri in a job. Chelsea are just a massive mess, that somehow continue to pick up trophies along the way.

thanks for the breakdown ste.  see even with Rudiger Luiz and Azpilicueta i still think they need Zouma.  Sometimes he plays a back 3 and he'd only have one guy to rotate in.  Plus they have CL and the domestic competitions they will need a larger squad and can't sign players so they need to retain players.

 

I don't think Sarri is going anywhere either, honestly i like the guy and his football, sadly i don't like chelsea.

What’s the point of having £40 mill for Zouma if you can’t spend it? There’s no way they will sell him

agreed.  Hazard yes because he walks next summer and they can get a king's ransom for him, but i don't see zouma going anywhere.

Interesting to see Chelsea selling alonso to athletico. Does that mean they are open to selling players ie Zouma or does it mean their capitan who I can’t spell moving to left back and Zouma slotting in at centre half?

When does their ban actually take place? Maybe they’re going to try and do everything quick?

Strange that they decided to sell him then. I suspect they’re not worried about the ban sticking.

Yeah read that before. Interesting but then again how many foreigners have they got on the books knocking about? I think when lampard goes there he isn’t want to get rid of many players why would he? Only hope is we have some option to buy when we took the loan which I doubt. Or they do touch on the ban being overturned. Which one would you rather? Lose Zouma and they are still banned helping out chances to get nearer to them or lift the ban and get him? 🤔

Chelsea just sold Kalas.  Not sure he would ever play for their first team but one less CB on the books for them.

Seems like nothing they are doing is tilting in our favor. Even if Lampard only rates him as 4th choice CB I don't think he would move him. Especially since he's not just going to a mid-table team. He would be a key player to club who is poised to threaten Chelsea's place in the top 6.

Not sure which way this one will go. Indications are that Zouma would want the move if hes not given reassurances of enough game time but Chelsea dont have to sell him as he has loads of time left on his contract.

Guess it would depend where hes rated against the other young CBs they have knocking on the door of their squad/starting XI.

They may want to take the rumoured £30m money to help with their FFP on a squad player who they may think can be replaced with youth.

What I'd like us to do though is give some time deadline of a decision and move on if they are not interested in selling - could disrupt our whole plans for defence this summer window

Depends whether they see 'Dave' as a full back or centre half. If Lampard or whoever wants him to play CB I can't see Zouma staying to be 4th choice. He's better than Luiz so might be a starter if Dave is RB but they've just given Luiz a new contract so potentially he'd kick up a stink if he fell down the pecking order.

I think they just re-signed Luiz because of the transfer ban knowing they needed depth at that position.

I think Lampard being manager will worsen our chances of getting Zouma. Didnt they play together when they won the CL?

They won the CL in 2012 and Kurt didn't sign for them until 2014.

I don’t know if they played together but the way he played for us even if they could buy in the transfer market I still think they would keep him.

😂 

Just checked back... League Cup final... played in midfield. Had a memory of him playing out of position in a final just a slight difference in significance!

Thanks Palf. Just had less time on my hands for a while and I spend far too much time on Everton generally. Can't help myself as the anticipation of a new season starts again!
