Was never going to happen unfortunately. Well not under a transfer ban at least. zouma is too good a player for them to let go without replacement.
Can't imagine what his price tag will be if we did sign him. Chelsea milking everyone for as much as they can so they have a warchest next summer
This is something I said some months ago. Perhaps it would explain why I think this is a good move.
When we were going through a two month bad spell in the league, who did we have to change things ? Silva had practically half a squad to use considering how many weren't good enough or on loan...
Delph can replace maccarthy and besic in the squad, who both played no games between them all season.
For 8 million and has been part of a title winning city squad coached by guadiola?
Seriously people are complaining?
What's next , slagging a new Winger off who is replacing...
Selling players that won't make the team and replacing them with ones who will.
That's good business.
Think for any genuine concerns in this thread, people forget that if we didn't sell to buy then we couldnt afford the wages for the new players?
Strange one is siggurdson.
At the point of a lot of good things last season and one of the causes for the poor form as well.
Short term he is a goalscoring playmaker for us and the upturn in form by the end of the season suggests we now have a settled team.
Long term he will be replaced...
