I know we’ve all had enough of Twitter for one day, but there are a few rumblings that the deal could fall through if he hasn’t fully recovered from his heel injury. 

 

Probably based off of guess work rather than knowledge 

Chilwell’s foot is old news

percy has spoken 

 

it’s going through

I read somewhere that Chilwell will see a medical specialist on Monday due to a problem with his recent heel injury and will miss the first 3 weeks of the season but the deal will still go ahead....

Been telling you lot about the heel injury for days if not weeks and that being a potential issue. Doesn’t mean it won’t happen and in fact it may make lcfc more keen to take the cash. 
 

would assume he is gone once we get our replacement and Chelsea flog their fella. 
 

Nothing would surprise me though. 
 

what Id love to know is how much of the 55mn or so we are getting up front? And how much is their in add ons? Am I right to say 55mn + 15 mn?

I think it’s 45 or 50 up front with some further payments guaranteed and then some add ons which are not.  We likely won’t find out until Chelsea have done their other business. I doubt we will leak the details until October when the window is shut.

I'll be interested to see how he gets on with more consistent attacking players in front of him, part of his problem here is that we rely on our full backs for creativity. Chilwell is best in support of the winger, which is why he's done ok for England.

Personally annoyed about this one. I feel like I did about the Kante transfer. Still think of Kante fondly though. 

 

Drinkwater / Maguire were at the peak. We sold both at the right time.
 

Mahrez deserved his transfer. 


I would have liked another 12 months from Chilwell.

This summer sees a few very good left-backs available so it’s in our interest to sell and replace now rather than hold on to Chilwell and inevitably sell him next summer.

Don't think we'll ever find out. Do we know the details of the Maguire deal? The quoted figure of £80m (or was it £85m?) plus add ons. What are they? Some suggestions that UCL qualification triggered another £10m. Who knows.

So us losing the last game could have earnt us £10m? There is a thought!

I thought I'd read on here it was 50 million plus up to 15 million in add ons? 

I think its around 48m upfront with add ons leading upto 70 mill.

 

Im a bit gutted he is leaving but for the down payment alone its great business

I like Ben, but that's an offer too good not to turn down.

£10m a year for the next 5 years. Not bad eh. 
 

Think we’ve been ripped off by Chelsea again. Sold Maguire for lots more, Chilwell younger, more potential.

I feel like it's one of those where it's in everyone's best interests not to reveal the overall/eventual fee.

 

If it's printed as 70 million then suddenly all the headlines are 'most expensive ever etc etc' and he's loaded with pressure from day one.


Similarly we'll be screwed trying to sign anyone this summer if it's disclosed as higher.

 

At £50m, there's a chance this transfer just blends into the top quarter of summer transfer worldwide this year. Suits everyone.

What annoys me is how long these things take. And we end up pissing around in the latter stages of the window trying to sort deals out. Maguire took the piss a bit and this one has dragged too. I understand there’s finances to hammer out, but when we get rid of players and then don’t leave us enough time to sign who we need we end up in a mess.

 

This should have been agreed before the season ended. Chelsea have clearly been active for some time, and now we’re left with a few weeks until the season starts and no new players...... which isn’t good enough, we’ve got a horrific European competition to endure as well as a very unforgiving premier league to try and compete with too. We must stop doing this, we leave ourselves far too much to do with  little time to do it. 
 

We need to have at least 4 new players as a minimum I think, that leaves a lot to do with the time left. 
 

Crack on with it and get some players in.
