Regardless of what happens in the coming days and months, we're guaranteed to have CL football return next season. That is about the only certainty, everything else is an unknown! I will address as much as I can here.

Transfer Ban
As it stands, we are unable to sign anyone for the next two windows, or, for 365 days. However, if our appeal to UEFA is rejected before the transfer window opens, we can appeal to CAS which will result in us allowing to purchase players until the appeal is rejected. We will eventually have to face the transfer ban, either now or in 2020, so if we can appeal to CAS before the window opens, we need to spend big to compensate for the ban.

New manager?
Sarri has technically done an acceptable job, but is not well liked within the fan base, so whether he stays or not is around 50/50. It will all come down to Roman and his thoughts on Sarri, and if he stays, he has to improve this team.

Frank Lampard is an often touted replacement, but his abilities as a manager are still somewhat unknown.
Thomas Tuchel is another option, should PSG sack him but I'm not overly fond of him.
Perhaps someone else will be in the hot seat come July? Your guess is as good as mine.

Hazard and CHO
Hazard is gone, I don't think there is any doubts about that, unless the transfer ban is upheld and we force him to stay, I just can't see us doing that to a club legend.

CHO is injured until August/September at best but that won't stop Bayern, there is no word on a contract extension, so he could well leave too, but is less likely. Unless we have the ability to replace him and we get a massive offer from Bayern, I think we'll reject all offers.

A transfer banned team for 19/20
Reece James, Ola, Aina, Zouma, Bakayoko, Morata, Abraham, Batshuayi, and possibly even Mount will get a chance to join the first team, with Pulisic being the only confirmed player joining us. The rest of the team will be very much the same, minus Kova and Higgy. Without Hazard, it will be a dramatically weaker side, I expect 5th or 6th with this team. Not great.

An un-transfer banned team for 19/20
I suspect we'll be busy if we can purchase players. Youcef Atal, Bruno Fernandes, David Neres, among others have been linked to us recently. This is without mentioning Kova and Higgy, who could also join us permanently. I think we'll end the window with purchases in:
Fullback
Centre Mid x2
Left Wing
Forward
+/-
Centre Back
Winger

I will keep this thread updated throughout the off season.

Some relatively reliable sources in Spain say that Real will pay 130m Euros for Hazard and that the deal will be announced after the season ends.

Let's just hope we can spend that money.

If Frank is being touted as Sarri's replacement, they might as well just stick it out with Sarri since the growing pains of a new coach with a new style would just come back but with a legend at the club instead of, well, Sarri. I do hope they stick it out with him as I can see what the team can achieve when everything clicks. Changing a football culture at a club is not an easy feat.

Yeah, I've been following Chelsea while Kova was there and would like to say, hard luck with him but I'm glad Loftus won out in the end tbh.

Sarri has been very rigid, I'm unsure if he can improve us without first changing himself.

I am happy RLC seems to have cemented his spot in the starting XI, it's been coming for about 4 years now. But I like Kova and wouldn't mind keeping him around, at least as a Jorginho back up. I'm not sure he'd want that, though.

As expected, Fifa have rejected our transfer ban appeal. We have now made public that we will appeal to CAS to have our ban overturned or to have it halted while the appeal process takes place. It is not guaranteed that this will happen but it was always our best hope of at least being able to sign players.

We've been pretty strongly linked to Coutinho as Hazard's replacement. I suspect it's Coutinho's agents trying to drum up hype but you never quite know when it comes to Chelsea Laughing

According to Nizaar Kinsella, CHO is increasingly likely to sign a contract extension and Chelsea are hopeful that given his young age, he'll be fit for the start of the season.

We will apparently make Kova's loan permanent should our ban be lifted. Good news as we need to focus elsewhere and I think this deal could be wrapped up easily. Especially with RLC's injury, we need players who know the system around.

Mount will be better off on loan unless we cannot sign anyone.

So this is how we are shaping up should the ban be lifted:
Out: Higuain
Hazard
Cahill

In:
Kovacic
Pulisic
Zouma
James/Aina
Coutinho/Zaha/Asensio
CF

Seems like we have a plan for the window, at least.
