I would also wait out the year, given that money is no concern for Chelsea. Fair enough that he's 4th choice right now, but in such a tight race, getting rid of such a talented player could really bite them if one of Hazard/Oscar/Willian gets injured.
@GuillemBalague: All agreed. Juan Mata will be a Manchester United player. 45 million euros. All will be announced very soon
I wonder if Moyes is planning a change to a 4-2-3-1. He could keep van Persie up top and put some combination of Mata/Janusaj/Rooney/Kagawa behind. The double pivot would probably be Carrick and Jones/Fletcher.
That team would score goals, but they would be a sieve defensively. Carrick isn't good enough anymore, Mata and Kagawa don't play a lot of defense, and the back four aren't strong enough to deal with what got through.
Sure, but Utd games would be loads of fun to watch.
I'll believe this transfer is real when it's real. Mata for Costa in the summer makes too much sense for me to think Chelsea aren't thinking about it. I wouldn't put it past Chelsea to string this out for the rest of the window and then pull the rug out from under Man U.
But they're Chelsea, their balance sheet is entirely notional, so why sell a really good player who still has a role to play? Why sell him to a club that's likely to be among their direct competitors for a title next year?
I am happy that Juan Mata, one of my favorite players in the world, probably will not be wearing a Chelsea shirt anymore.
Howso? They lost another 60 million pounds last year despite the weird commercial sponsorship with Gazprom. The only reason they haven't gone for Cavani or Falcao is the bidders for those players were even nuttier than Abramovich. More fiscally responsible than PSG or Monaco isn't fiscally responsible. Enjoy the players and success Roman's money buys but you can't have your cake and eat it, too.
Sorry, anyway. I feel like I'm much more objective in evaluating Spurs than Chelsea. Don't have a clear explanation of where the hate comes from, but it is strong in me.
Can't clearly identify where the hate comes from, but it is strong in me.
I just wish Shinji Kagawa would play like the player we all pretended to watch at Dortmund.
Edit: Except for Ki
Salah to Chelsea looks done. The Reds have been Willianed! It only stings for a bit. Trust me on this.
Is he better than De Bruyne?
You mean Woolwich? #Norflondonisblue
Arsenal is the original MK Dons.
