Han-Noah Massengo - SIGNED - 4 Year Deal

This is where the "Chelsea rumour" started...

It's a theory, nothing more.

As I have already stated quite clearly earlier , I was just speculating a possible scenario although it was interesting hearing it come back to me as a Facebook fact in the coffee shop pre match.  I suppose it’s how the bible got written so I shouldn’t be surprised.

SL confirmed transfer going ahead and that the boy will spend time with under 23's before stepping up.

When did he say that? 

Esrlier Johnson was asked if he’d go straight into the first team and he said ‘why not?’

This Chelsea nonsense is the biggest load of rubbish I have ever heard & I can't believe any of you believe it. As if Chelsea would sign an 18 year old for €8m (they have their academy to sell players for this price not to buy them), and even if they did, as if they'd ask SL to do some dodgy deal with them & we'd trust each other to pay up/sell at the end of it.

"Yeah no worry Abramovich we'll destroy our FFP for the next 2 years and ruin our chances of signing players, just to get 1 player on loan". All whilst, most probably going against the rules for these types of things & risking the case of huge fines/point deductions. 

If we get Tomori or a Chelsea player on loan it'll be because our transfer dealings have had mutual benefits, not because we're player laundering for them. Literally laughable. Some people do love to find any excuse.

New to OTIB are you!?😉 COYR

It would add fuel to the fire that there is some form of collusion over the Massengo deal

Yes, and of course  that would also be nothing more than the most tenuously circumstantial... and even as I type these words I’m thinking ‘hang on, I’ve just summed OTIB up thoroughly AND pretty near effortlessly’.

Still doesn’t give a bit  of real evidence to the conspiracy theorising , but that won’t stop the catastrophising ITKers though.

Someones mentioned this, but ive never heard that this sort of thing has ever happened, ever? Oh well, we will have to see how this all works out.

It seems that when I merely speculated (tongue-in-cheek) on a possible scenario early this morning it then took on a life of its own became a rumour and then an indisputable fact by this afternoon such is the feeding frenzy on OTIB and Facebook. Next time I speculate I will remember to copyright it before anyone else plagiarises my muses.

That’s some conspiracy theory. It’s beyond shady and if it were the case and it were found out we would be dragged through the mud. 

A big, big risk that I can’t see SL being down with. 

Not even sure I agree it’s that shady tbh: a player sold with a buy back clause.  The difference here is a sell on clause - granting an option; but it’s still a bit like the option we had on Jay to discuss terms at a specific fee.

If Chelsea funded the purchase of this guy then it stinks  

Otherwise I see it as we have (almost, it would seem) bought a player. Part of his deal may include a release transfer fee. He may or may not have negotiated that as club specific. We may or may not have agreed. 

If, it represents a good deal for us - and who can criticise MA in the transfers out market? - get in.

18 years old.

Mental.

This lad is apparently a very special talent who Chelsea are interested in but due to their  transfer ban can’t sign him.

So.......we buy him, train him up and once he’s up to Championship quality he gets to play. Should he impress as all concerned anticipate then Chelsea will have first refusal on once their ban has expired.

One big advantage of having such close contacts with Chelsea.

Mate, he played in the Champions League last season and is about to become our record signing. 

Yeah but he'll need time to get used to our complicated footballing philosophy, don't want him to ruin our identity that Johnson has installed 🙄

Total nonsense. 

Chelsea will have no more favour in signing him from us in future than any other team.

Reading self-confessed speculative musings on a forum and then spouting it as your own foreseen gospel is bullshit. 

I wont believe the Chelsea link until it's on the OS. You donut

I noticed Brentford are signing a young French lad as well. Maybe Chelsea are going to use a few teams this way
