Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Stamford Chidge and Jonathan Kydd join Johnny Burrow to discuss the latest on Chelsea’s Transfer Ban; Eden Hazard’s departure for Real Madrid and who should replace Maurizio Sarri if the Italian really is off to join Serie A giants Juventus.
With the news breaking that Chelsea has appealed their FIFA transfer ban with CAS, we have Football.London’s Chelsea correspondent, Oliver Harbord, on the line to explain what it all means.
With Maurizio Sarri rumoured to be leaving Chelsea for Juventus, what’s holding things up? Will he still go and is haggling with Juventus for £5 million compensation merely repeating last summer’s mistake of disrupting the preparations for next season? Would a quick exit and a quick hire be better for Chelsea?

If he does leave, who will replace Sarri and will it depend on the situation with the transfer ban? Allegri is rumoured to be interested and would signal a return to pragmatic winning at all costs football, but would Frank Lampard and Jody Morris be a more shrewd appointment if Chelsea had to resort to blooding the youth?
With the news that the deal for Eden Hazard to leave Chelsea has been done with Real Madrid, has Marina Granovskaia played a blinder in getting £88 million which could rise to £130 million with add ons? And have Chelsea managed to persuade Callum Hudson-Odoi to commit to Chelsea on a 5-year deal, worth £100k per week?
Finally, we discuss the extraordinary comments in the press from Alvaro Morata which seem to confirm most Chelsea supporter’s opinion that he’s just not cut out to be a Chelsea striker.
