what does he expect from a bunch of rent boys, there fans are really barely top 10 in the league for attendance (even with a bigger stadium they would draw what, 50kish) when the money runs dry (or at least they are on par with tottenham and arsenal), will people really still want to play for chelsea over the likes of arsenal, united, liverpool etc, highly doubtful. (will be even worse for city)
Marco Reus is probably gone (hopefully not to munich, they are also coming off incredibly scummy as per usual in relation to the transfer dealings) If only we could fit him in and play him (Di Maria + Reus is out of this world)
Cavani continues to be linked to us, arsenal and liverpool (don't really want him at united in all honesty) arsenal could use him.
apparently scouse gerrard could leave liverpool (would laugh hard, i would imagine the MLS would pay top dollar for him)

if LVG is willing to leave united after one season, we could finally land Pep :p Arsene to PSG is even more likely then
If Ronaldo, Di Maria and Bale can all play in the same team then why not Reus and Di Maria. I love Reus and actually think there is a real need for him, Di Maria has been mesmerizing in a central role but in and out of games when out wide, Young and Valencia should probably both leave, Zaha and Lingard aren't ready so we really only have Januzaj who hasn't been productive at all this season. Having Reus on the left wing would be a massive boost, with Adnan on the right, Di Maria, Herrera, Blind in midfield and whichever one of Falcao, Rooney and Van Persie is bothered to perform up front we'd be one Benedict Howedes away from having a title challenging team. If I was woody, Reus, Howedes, Strootman, De Sciglio and possibly Berahino (if our strikers don't sort their shit out), would be the players I'd be looking at
