    It's also very much about the cash. This reminds me of the Bayern dominance of the 2000s pre Dortmund resurgence where some of their transfers didn't even make sense, they seemingly just did it because they had the money and didn't want anyone else to sign certain players.

    Now in the case of Odoi, maybe Bayern really want him as they need wingers, but then Chelsea come up with this delusional bid of 100k, then all those money clubs come in like "well, we don't even need a winger, but he's a hot prospect right now and we got the cash. Offer him 120k." It's ridiculous.

    He isn't very fast for a winger. But as far as I know he's done well out there. I don't think Bayern are interested in him as a wide player though. More because he can play behind the striker or in a three man midfield as a James replacement. I think they may pull the plug on the James deal.

    Agree re James. Always had a feeling Bayern wouldn't sign him permanently.

    Wasn't relating the two topics; money and minutes, I only really quoted you as you were discussing CHO so apologies for any confusion, I was just giving my opinion on how I keep seeing media stating he is not getting game time at Chelsea which I think is pretty unfair on the club as its not as simple as some of the pundits are making out.

    100k for him is ridiculous but I'm not surprised, they have also been backed into a bit of a sh*t place, play him over better player, pay him 100k which is ridiculous, sell him or let him leave on a free.

    They will be criticised for every option, if they sell him and he comes good they hear how they lack ambition/development and sold him cheap, if they give him the wages he wants they get criticised for paying it plus 100k on a 5yr deal and he may turn out crap, risk the contract for next year and if he leaves on a free and they get ridiculed for it if he comes good.

    85m for Eriksen when you've still got Isco? Or is Eriksen planned as Modric's successor? What about Asensio? Is he by now more of a winger or an attacking mid or even a striker? Then they're very likely to add Hazard on the wings, probably get rid of Bale. Very crammed attacking options. Then they also need to replace Kroos.

    Eriksen as Modric replacement is odd. They're nothing alike.

    Wonder where Kroos might end up. PSG maybe? Or to Utd if RM get Pogba.

    Seems to be papertalk, cannot see Madrid bidding 85M for a player with a year left on his contract. I believe they might go for Milinkovic-Savic.

    Hudson Odoi looks special in fairness. Should a teenager be earning 100k a week? Probably not, but in terms of protecting an investment - he's worth it. Him and Pulisic can in part cover the loss of Hazard.

    Pulisic is going to flop, especially if they expect him to replace Hazard.

    :lol:

    Chelsea got bent over with that one. Pulisic surely isn't a 65m player.

    He isn't worth the money but ven with that being true, Willian, Pedro, Hudson-Odoi and Pulisic is a great mix of youth and experience.

    Think it is bang average if Odoi doesnt instantly show Sancho form.
