We have all wondered about the situation regarding transfers now AVB is in charge. Reports were that he had 100% say on all comings and goings at the club. Well today, in his press conference ahead of the game tomorrow, AVB has confirmed that isn't the case.

We have been heavily linked with Genk's exciting winger Kevin De Bruyne for the last few seasons and things have come to a head this week with reports that a deal would be agreed between the two clubs for him to sign for Chelsea and be loaned straight back to Genk to finish the Belgian season.

AVB has stressed today that KDB will be a one for the club and not necessarily one of his own personal targets. He said:

'He is a player that the club has scouted for quite some time, and was interested in for quite some time. I am a manager who respects club policies as well and when the club has to plan for the future, being with this manager and any other manager, I think Kevin is an extremely interesting player and is a good bet if the club finishes the situation.

Interesting comments from AVB again. I understand the situation with the club wanting to invest in younger players and to build for the future. Surely though, the Manager should have the final say whether or not someone comes in or doesn't?.

If we do sign KDB then AVB will have to integrate him into his plans for next season whether he wanted to or not which seems wrong to me.

If you are to have confidence in the person your believe is the right man to take the club forward, then surely you need to give him total control of HIS squad.

Is it just me or am I wrong on this? Like I said, I understand the club wanting to build for the future, but my view is that it must be in accordance with the manager and the players HE WANTS?

  1. I'm sorry to say this but I'm really starting to dislike Chelsea day after day or shall I say story aftr story
    nothink is ordinary in this club , changing managers every season or two , players bought because the owner likes them not because the manager wants them
    it has been nearly three month since the team had a fantastic game and the manager always coming out impressed by the shit football the team we play
    i'm not English and I'm not a plastic fan because I started following Chelsea after the Barcelona game 2005 and has been a fan for nearly seven years but I'm starting to get bored with the club and the performance of the team but I can't help it as I love this club too much to just leave it !
    I know I don't make alot of sense now but I really needed to get these words out
