These numbers look suspect.  Chelsea sold Hazard for £90M. No way they have a net income of £173M.

Didn't they get about 50mill for Morata?

Net spend ended up been a bit meh, what happened to the claimed going for broke some predicted?

I know it doesn’t make much difference but it was actually a net spend of £20 million because we had to give Hull £9 million.

Might be unpopular, but I've got more love for Drinky than Kante in all honesty, obviously Kante was a huge catalyst but Drinky was there at the start of the build and also had a bit of a roller coaster ride himself.  Remember how much he was slated after the Barnsley game? You could argue his rise here was quite similar to Vardy's, go from thinking he's pretty disposable to then becoming such a key player the club. I think the euro 2016 snub did actually get to him, because I don't think he was the same player after that. Like with Kante, while I'll have fond memories of him, I just can't quite love him after he ran straight for the exit immediately after winning the title. 

I have no love for either of them.  They're Chelsea players.  They move on, so do we.

11mil is that a joke. I hope a considerable amount of cash is on ice to be used in the next two transfer windows or else Rodgers got hoodwinked again.:)

Rodgers spent nearly £100m in a single window. I don't know what else he'd possibly want.

story is probably going round old trafford that he would have preferred man city... agent probably released this story to save face at United.

This is actually only having it one way.

It would be both ways if they praised him like a messiah while he was here and now slagged him off.

For sure, at least Mahrez stuck around for the Champions League, and helped give the fans a European adventure to remember. He was linked with Arsenal amongst others but he was waiting for a Barcelona/Real Madrid to call, and to be fair this Man City side are up there with that sort of level of quality, just without the European trophies. 

 

Fair enough if those sides come calling, but a Chelsea side who had just finished 10th when he had a contract offer on the table from us for more than 100k a week, just felt a bit disrespectful when we had Champions League football on offer and was the key part of our greatest side ever. 

 

He should have gone to a Juventus, Real Madrid etc to really show how good he really is. Not ****ing Chelsea. 

He left and has since won the league again, fa cup and europa league. That's more than those teams you've mentioned and more of a challenge in some respects. Plus he could still get another move - he wasn't to have foreseen Chelsea's transfer ban when signing which hinders them competing at the same level.

Captained Man U last night and got bamboozled

 

 

Maguire acknowledged as much at full-time, writing on Twitter: “A honour to lead the boys out tonight.”

And he has a 100% success rate after United defeated Partizan Belgrade 1-0 in Serbia.

It wasn’t pretty, though. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side managed just one shot on target and that came from Anthony Martial’s match-winning penalty.

And Maguire himself had a moment to forget during the encounter.

It came in the second half, with the £80 million man being made to look pure Sunday League by Partizan's Seydouba Soumah.

Look away now, Harry.

Nope ...   not pulled down at all ...  but we should have kept him for one more season AND got more for him.  
 

Anyway ..  who do you think our new centre half will be as apparently Brendan is in the market for one ...

I genuinely wish Harry well, but it's funny, after Kante left people were still crying about it like lovesick teenagers 6 months later.  Mahrez' name is still mentioned with a few 'if onlys', but I've not heard a murmur of discontent on here since Harry left. 

 

£80m banked and improved the team!   Genius!

That's who I think we will try and get, I think we'll send them Benkovic in the deal.

I haven't watched any Celtic games and I don't know Ajer but surely Benkovic was hailed as their best centre half when he was there?  Why swap him for a lesser team mate?

 

Edit - just read online that Celtic are to offer him a huge new contract to tempt him to stay - as much as £25k p/w  lol

@henrik_62 can answer this, from what I gather Ajer has been phenomenal for them since converting to centre back and seems destined for the very top. Benkovic would also be in that category but he seems blighted by injury every season since he was 18/19 which is a huge worry.

In fairness, with Evans in the squad I dont think we should worry too much if Benkovic is injured. Soyuncu/Ajer (Ajer as a placeholder name) and Evans/Benkovic should work fine.
