They don’t. Gusto is better than a potential bench player to Reece James. He deserves a starting place at another club.
They're just buying every young player who's tipped for big things, but if half these guys reach their full potential they're going to have a bloated squad of top players who all expect to start.

Real life isn't like FIFA video games, that will quickly turn into a horrible situation to manage.

I would ask if they need him but why would that matter.
Reece James feels like he misses at least 3 months out of every season and our season collapses every time when he and Chilwell aren’t available.

Chelsea’s transfer strategy will come back to bite them in the arse, I’m sure of it.
Of course it will. When has this ever worked except for the first time Chelsea done it. In a totally different era of football.

Their transfer business is like someone picked up a copy of FM, searched Google for ‘best young players everyone should buy in FM’, made note of the names and then just decided to start a new game and proceed from there.

20 years ago theyd be buying Freddy Adu, Daniel Braaten, Anatoli Todorov and Fredy Guarin.

Now that’s a name I hadn’t read in ages. A true wunderkind on FM. Pace & power.

Malo Gusto has a contractual agreement with Chelsea

The Blues have made a first offer.

A long-term contract of more than 5 years awaits him

Manchester United also positioned themselves and asked the player not to rush

Chelsea are still following D. Dumfries

Of course Chelsea are after Dumfries too.

Reece James gets lengthy injuries every year. Our season has collapsed for two straight seasons now when he went down. We’ve had to use an old, long past it Azpi, Chalobah (a CB) and Loftus Cheek (a CM) as cover to various degrees of terrible.

Anyone saying we don’t need another RB doesn’t watch Chelsea.

What I would give for a Maxim Tsigalko or Fredy William Thompson for us.

Feck, now I just want to go download old CMs

Even if he is fit they could both still play. James is exceptionally talented and would easily fit in to other positions. For a start he is probably also one of our best CMs and of course RCB but I really would hate for him to be in such a restrictive position. Might help his injuries though.

Didn’t he pass away?

I downloaded CM 01/02 a few months ago. Unless you want to put a strain on your work, relationship and friendships, I advise against it :D

We clearly need to sell someone before we buy him.
In November you make it clear AWB is available to other clubs. You sell for whatever amount and you sign this player. You make the finances work because this is an elite football club. Never happens that way though.

Thought that was the case though. We supposedly only got shitty loan offers
It seems like we want to buy him but we don't have the money right now. So it'll be interesting to see if Chelsea sign him in this window.
Exactly, we also can't have 3 first team RBs. One has to go to give him a space in the squad.

We’ve been linked with him for a while tbf. Hope he listens but will most likely follow the £.
He’s going to follow the money regardless of where he ends up. If you want him and offer him more than us he won’t choose us and vice versa.
