First of all,i am a new guy here so hi to all my fellow blues. Secondly, who doesn't like having a 100m on Fifa Manager? This is like more real. I know we have been given 100m and many would like to spend all of it. But I have tried to spend as least as possible.
Also I would like to tell u about my bias in creating my dream summer: 1) I have taken many youngsters instead of experienced players. 2) I love seeing Chelsea players playing for England National Team. So English players are a priority here.
About the EPL and CL squad rules, I think basically it comes down to not having more than 17 non-homegrown players in your squad. so that has been taken care of. Here goes...
Fernando Torres - 12m - I lost my patience with him long ago. Also, I don't like his sulking on the pitch.
Florent Malouda - Free - Thank you for coming here Flomo.
Yossi Benayoun - Free - Thank you for staying away and now going away.
Jhon Pirez - Free - Never gonna be a player of any repute. Cut our losses. Spanish 3rd Division
Anjur Osmanovic - Free - Swedish 2nd Division.
Amin Affane - Free - Energie Cottbus, is it?
Ulises Davila - 850k - Never gonna be Chelsea quality. Spanish 2nd division.
John Obi Mikel - 14m - Too slow. Need better than just passing sideways and backwards.
Billy Cliifford - 750k - Too old to now keep loaning him. Hopefully league 1.
Sam Hutchinson - Free with options on youngsters - To a Club with a good academy.
Jeffrey Bruma - 4m - Too old to keep loaning him.
Matej Delac - 400k- Too old to keep loaning him.
Demba Ba - 9m - Never the frontman to lead us into higher echelons.
Michael Essien - 8m - Thank you Bison, you were the best. Damn you, whoever gave essien that knee injury.
Branislav Ivanovic - 15m - A bid in this region is criminal to turn down.
Total sell value - 64m
Neven Subotic - 20m - Criminally Underrated as compared to Hummels. Top Quality.
Luke Shaw - 6m + Ryan Bertrand - Shaw is too good to not be bought. Bertrand? Meh.
Marco Van Ginkel - 8m - Young Ballack. A lot of guts this guy has. Can play CM, CDM, RB.
Eric Dier - 6m + Kenneth Omeruo - Dier is a future English starter. Can play CDM, CB. Impressive season with Lisbon.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - 15m - A whole-together different breed of striker. Can interchange with the amigos too.
Mario Gomez - 25m - Fox in the Box. Always at the end of balls. Not Torres.
Lazar Markovic - 8m - Simply Superb. Part of my Next-Generation Amigos. Good on the wings.
Jean Paul Boetius - 5m - Has a lot of potential and a lot of speed. Could really become a true hug-the-touchline winger. Again in my Next-Generation Amigos.
Alen Halilovic - 10m - Cannot ignore this guy. Perfect attacking midfielder for the perfect defensive midfielder i.e Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Total Buy Value - 104m
TOTAL SPEND - 40m
BUDGET LEFT - 60m
Joao Rodriguez - Loan - Cannot come to England until 18.
Patrick Bamford - Loan - Championship
Gael Kakuta - Loan - Last Chance. Really want this guy to succeed.
Lucas Piazon, Lazar Markovic, Jean-Paul Boetius - My Next-Generation Amigos. Loan appropriately.
Christian Cuevas - Loan - Second Half of the season.
Thorgan Hazard - Loan - My most difficult decision. The way I see, both him and Piazon play the same position. Piazon gets my vote.
Josh McEachran - Loan - Contrary to popular opinion, not his last chance. Still only 20.
Nathaniel Chalobah - Loan - Premier League team
George Saville - Loan - Championship
Pv Aanholt - Loan - Option to recall. Cover for Shaw
Nathan Ake - Loan - Higher Championship team.
Todd Kane - Loan - Championship
Wallace - Loan - Second Half of the season.
Thibaut Courtois - Loan - Atletico Madrid
Sam Walker - Loan - Lower Championship/Higher League 1 team.
