Wouldn't surprise me to see Arsenal put a bid in for him now. If Sanchez goes to City too they'll be in meltdown.

Chelsea seems absolutely wrong for him unless he cares more about money than football

He'll get plenty of game time there, probably win a trophy or two, sample London while he's young and get a decent payrise. Sounds horrible, my heart bleeds for him.

Other than the living in London bit, he could have had all that here.

And the game time.

Nope

Behind John Cross he must be the shittest journalist with no sources on Twitter. Click bait journalism.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is apparently going for 40m in the same situation, Ross must be worth closer to 35m using that as a marker.

I'm sure we'd take 30m plus maybe 5m add ons.

If rumours are correct and we've turned down 25m then it's only a matter of time until he goes. There is willing from all parties to get it done so the only sticking point is the fee, which if they got close to what we paid for Sig is decent business to be honest.

If Chelsea seriously think Barkley is only worth 25M when clubs are chucking money around like it's confetti then they've been smoking something they shouldn't have.

We should take the piss in return and say they can pay 25M and give us Batshuayi as well.  :snigger:

They love sending players out on loan so I'd take him if we shave a few million off the Barkley fee, especially if they sign Llorente as it looks like they will.

30 million plus Batshuayi on a season long loan with first option for a permanent deal if it goes well

Fair enough that like.

I agree. He was very highly rated at one point, before his career stalled by sitting on his arse every week. At this stage in the window he's about as good as we're gonna get.

Can see the headlines now "Dross Barkley" after he becomes the Stamford Bridge whipping boy

Or 'Boss Barkley' when he tears it up playing with better players and with a fresh start mentality.

He's fucking ugly too, no way do we want his looks tarnishing our sexy looking side.

Edit: Except our Wayne ofc :bonk:

He's bagged a fit missus though. Although that's pretty standard if your annual salary is in the millions not the thousands.

Spurs now declared themselves out of any deal for Barkley this window. He's staying until January at least isn't he.

Rooney and Sigurdsson? Rooney hasn't been consistent and Sigurdsson is consistently good on set plays. Neither can be compared to what the 6 teams above us have. Not even remotely close

Let's give it more than a couple of games to see how they play together hey. We're not in the top 6 so it's hardly surprising we don't have the quality that they do. We're bridging the gap at the minute, we're not going to suddenly buy players of the ability to catapult us into the top three.

I reckon Barkley could come back into the fold and end up signing a new contract if Chelsea don't up their bid tonight. It might make our squad even more unbalanced and top heavy on the same type of player but if he plays well he plays and I don't suppose you can argue with that.

Except in January he can start negotiating his free transfer. If we're selling we have to sell now.

To any interested parties on the continent that may vaguely of heard of him.
