    (it would be great news if true, because if Chelsea are prepared to pay 6m+ in wages then...)
    Yes that is what I'm saying. Can't reveal the source but as I say, two people have told me this. As I keep saying, they fought off Arsenal and Liverpool and it had to be a good deal. Also as I keep saying, Wenger said last year that there are dozens of teenagers with Premiership clubs who have earned millions and have never been near a first team squad. He has been a first team player for us, in the Welsh squad and highly rated by top pros, why is everyone so surprised?

    Conte in pre-match interview says Ethan is keeping David Luiz out of matchday squad. Bloody hell.

    Q No David Luiz? Not in the squad at all. Why is that?

    Answer from Conte. 'Tactical decision. We have Ampadu who can play there instead'

    (it is getting increasingly difficult to say Ethan isn't worth 3m!)

    So what he means by that is that Ampadu could do a job at centre back if required but is primarily back-up for holding mid and is a better choice than Luiz for today because he's more versatile. Not exactly the same as keeping Luiz out of the squad.

    Indeed. More versatile than a 35M player who they sold a couple of years ago for 50M and helped take Brazil to a World Cup semi final.

    And they’re challenging our valuation that is less than a tenth (apparently) of Luiz’s worth?

    Although for all we know we're asking for 10m (not that that would be insane based on what we've seen from him so far), but the point is we really have no idea how much City are asking for.

    The club would like 3m for him. This has not been publicly stated by the club, but much like the Ollie Watkins fee, we have an idea without it being confirmed.

    I seem to recall Luiz has played a number of times in the holding midfielder role.

    Yeah, he has. Reading further it turns out that this is all about Conte making a point against Luiz, who is still Chelsea's best central defender by a long way. There has been a disagreement between them about something, and Conte wants to show Luiz he's not indispensable. It was all a bit risky considering he might have ended up having to play Ethan at centre-back as a sub, though it seems more likely he would have shifted someone already on the pitch into that position (Azpilicueta for example) and covered them with a sub instead.
