    I prefer to think of it that he could have gone anywhere and chose us.

    No wonder they were so resilient in CL this year, only chance of bagging the best players this summer and it's paid off.

    How do you feel about this as a Chelsea fan? I imagine it must feel all feel very "last minute"? I mean, United and City fans immersed themselves in Hazardness when it looked like it was between the two of us, so we hyped him up and got ourselves excited about the prospect of him playing. Because you entered the race so late, did you as a Chelsea fan manage to get as worked up at the prospect of signing him, or is is more of a "I'm pleased we got such a highly-rated player, especially when we were competing against our rivals"?

    If all those quotes in the pics are true then who the hell wants a player like that in their team?

    Meh, the most important signing Chelsea will make this Summer is their next manager, I won't in any way call them challengers until I find out who it is.

    Nope, the owner. He commissioned the Marin deal and all.

    Probably Abramovich's way of convincing Pep to join.

    Considering nobody knew where he was going thirty minutes ago do you not put doubt on further details from before then?

    I would rather him join Chelsea than City. City seem to have a more cohesive 'project' than Chelsea. Chelsea finished 6th remember, they were pretty far off a title challenge and they are likely to lose arguably their best player in Drogba.

    I think that if City had got their main transfer targets then there would have been a good chance of them getting too far ahead. Now all we need is Van Persie to feck them off.

    I guess in the end it could be down to the fact we already have Rooney, Welbeck, Nani and Young for him to compete with and Chelsea can almost guarantee him a start.

    To be completeley honest I'm not really that fussed. I don't follow french football so have only seen this guy in a few youtube clips.

    Obviously people who know more than I do about him seem to think he's a tremendous prospect but I don't really get excited about possible transfers.

    went for the wages, can't begrudge him that. Kagawa was always the better fit but you cant help but want all the diamonds on show. If we don't get Kagawa either then there's something horribly wrong at United...

    A bitter blow. He will be superb.

    Most likely that was our only chane of seeing a big signing this summer. Kagawa will be a good buy though.

    We have no chance of signing players who are wanted by any of city, chelski, real and barca

    Disappointing tbh. I hope we are not in for Kagawa, Hazard is a far better prospect.

    Agreed. He strikes me as a prick, and has done for a while now with this constant media whoring.

    A great player he may be, but with an ego like that he'll be off to Real Madrid the first chance he gets.

    They've lost Drogba, so no more directness. Cole, who was excellent in the Munich final was awful against mid-table opposition. Terry -- the less said, the better.

    Di Matteo will probably be found out over the course of a season. If Roman wants the team to play 'pretty football', he'll probably see you won't get anywhere.

    Kagawa is absolutely class, maybe not quite as talented as Hazard but he's established himself in a better league, in the team that has won it for the last 2 years.

    I'd be fecking delighted to get him here, for half the price and half the wages.

    Don't know why anyone is affected by this. It was expected. We simply can't match the wages that City and Chelsea can.

    Mata, Marin, Hazard and Torres is going to be one hell of an expensive bus to park in next years CL.

    He does seem a twat. But for some reason I found that appealing. Nothing wrong with a cocky, confident young footballer, assuming he will back it up too.

    How does he know?

    Did he?

    I don't think Guardiola would be that easily convinced.

    Chelsea will definitely compete next season, they barely gave the premier league much thought this year after the AVB horror show and then focused entirely on the cup competitions. They wont want to make that same mistake twice next year and will spend big this summer to make sure it doesn't happen again.

    Not really, they'll be in the CL next season and be challenging for the league, not too mention they gave him a lot of money.

    That's your opinion, my opinion however is these are both young, quality players in a position we desperately need to strengthen. If you can't see that missing out on both players is an issue then you need to take off the blinkers.

    Both players fit our "transfer strategy".

    Marin was 7 million, less than Bebe. He was also signed as a squad player, to replace Kalou.
