    The rumors I heard at the time were four first round picks and either Hart or Kuzma.

    EDIT: With Ball and Ingram, obviously. I think Zubac was supposed to be in the mix as well, which obviously...

    It's the exact deal that was rumored back at the deadline, though. The only difference is that we know that this year's pick is #4, which seemed unlikely at the time.

    We're glossing over the fact that they're still planning on going with Daenerys. Do you think they're just waiting until the next free trial period of HBO to catch up on the show?

    I don't think anyone expected Salah to be so good at Liverpool. He was sold for right about what everyone thought he was worth. Alisson was already considered one of the best keepers in the world...

    Yeah, all the bullshit game theory in the world wouldn't keep me from taking that offer if I were Chelsea. That is a staggering number for one season's worth of a player.

    Yeah, I guess I forgot to factor in how desperate Real Madrid are to make a splash when I was thinking about Hazard leaving. 88 million for someone in the last year of their contract is insane.

    It's a gamble. I think Chelsea ultimately lets him go, just going on the Courtois precedent. That worked out badly for them, though.
