Chairman’s son Jack Sullivan tweeted that West Ham made a late bid of £32m yesterday for Michy Batshuayi. “We bid 39m euro Batshuayi and it was accepted yesterday by his club, but he chose another PL club ahead of us, Chelsea ?” said young Jack this afternoon.
Yesterday Crystal Palace thought they had done enough after submitting a 38m Euro bid (£31m) on wages of £110,000 per week. If Jack is to be believed we outbid Palace by a further million Euros before Chelsea came over the top of both its London rivals to meet the 40m Euros (£33m) asking price today.
Batshuayi’s Twitter account showed he had recently begun following the Football Association, Premier League and Chelsea social media accounts just hours after it was revealed that Antonio Conte had identified him as a transfer target.
Now sure how many starts he will get in a Chelsea shirt this coming season. He might become one expensive super sub.
Lol… the mystery of Batman deepens… we need the help of the Commissioner Gordon… anyway, if that’s true, I don’t think Batman will be a super sub in Chelski shirt… how many top strikers do Chelski have? Costa, and it’s not sure he’ll stay… Conte is not a fool… 😉
Why don’t the 2 Daves gazump the Ruski if nothing else drive the price up,
Maybe Batman only wants to play for a second class team and can’t cope with a real challenge,
Don’t worry Matte Conte will be on his anti depressants within weeks of taking the job,
Haha… maybe you’re right bubs 😉
Good news for us, time to step up the pursuit of Jannsen / Gomez / Lacazette
Yes great call, i’m unsure why we haven’t been chasing Jannsen instead of this clown the whole time. For me the Lacazette horse has bolted, we needed to meet their demands earlier.
Jannsen is my preferred choice over Gomez, I think he’s got a broader skillset and also has the potential to improve rather than decline with age like Gomez will continue to do. We may even make some money off Jannsen in a few years. That being said i’d take Gomez happily if it came down to it…Hell let’s get them both.
Good call No 32.This bloke and his agent are playing us off against each other to drive up the price.Get someone who wants to play for our beloved claret & blue.Stuff the mercenaries.
Go get Jansen ? Wait to long and spuds will get him ? Offer 20 mill and he comes ??
