Mancienne future to be decided this week

It seems that Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is in no rush to decide on the future of Michael Mancienne.

With the new season fast approaching, you would have thought in the best interests of the player that Chelsea would have made their minds up whether they want to keep him or let him go.

I'm sure Michael Mancienne would like to know and every single Wolves fan would also like to know as we all hope to see him return to Molineux for another stint.

But it seems while we have to remain patient for now, the wait is close to an end.

'Michael Mancienne is training with us now and he is here. We have to consider him as a Chelsea player. Now he is here and I don't know if for him it is better, we will take a decision maybe next week about his situation.' Carlo Ancelotti told chelseafc.com.

Over the past year or so reading the views of Vital Chelsea supporters, it is clear that Mancienne is well thought of down there.

But is he really going to be better off staying there and hardly playing, just to help them make up their quota in the new squad system?

Let him go, play first team football on a regular basis and help him push on in his England career!

Mick is still saying we need to sell before we get Mancienne in. With Keogh seen as the likely player to be sold for any realistic money is this just a ploy to help with keeping the price low? Doyle taken a knock already, if we do sell Keogh anyone else concerned the striking options are limited??

Doesn't sound like the Doyle situation is serious but it does get you thinking. If Blake comes in and Keogh is the only back up (kids aside) then that would concern. As for the Mancienne saga, I still think there is work going on behind the scenes. It sounds absurd but Chelsea have changed their tune these days and I can see them holding out for an inflated price, similar to what we are doing with Keogh, who may still be leaving? Back to Mancienne, I still think he will be with us by the weekend.

hoping you guys take him on loan for another season. i still see him being a great player when he's older. another 35 games for you lot would be perfect.

I hope one way or the other that we secure the services of Mancienne again. It will be a significant blow should we fail.

If we need to sell , I just struggle to see any player we have making the money we need to purchase Mancienne , Because wether your a Keogh lover or hater hes going knowhere now vokes is out for at least a month from what i have been told and Doyle only slightly doubtfull for the first game ( Only taken a knock on his calf , no strain/tear/pull etc ) , That leaves us with 3 fit strikers with the option of Ward as a 4th , No Wolves player that Mick would listen to offers for would make the 4/5 million Chelsea would PROBABLY accept , A year long loan is the best we could hope for , And to be honest im sick of the yes/no/maybe Mancienne situation , And im focusing on a season without him !

If a third season on loan is all we can get then I would happily take that. He's a lifelong Chelsea fan but at some point he is going to have to put his career before the badge if he wants to realize his potential. I think he has the world at his feet and remember it was only a few weeks ago that he was saying that he had enjoyed his time with Wolves and just wants to be settled at one club he can call home. I'm not sure what he is on, but it can't be fun playing second fiddle watching the big time charlie's swanning around.

Now MM is saying we won't spend 4m to buy him but will happily take him on loan, I wonder what impact that has on the player's thoughts? Probably just screwed any chance we had of doing either! Maybe 4m is on the high side but given his potential I really think MM is making a mistake here in not offering to buy.

If we dont have the funds available then MM is just being honest and saying it how it is , We have spent a lot of money in the right areas already Mancienne would have been a fab Purchase but He's Chelsea's player not ours !!!! , Morgan and Moxey are running the Club Brilliantlly , Chelsea never break even and have to bank on the Russian to Bail them out over n over , We made a 4 million loss last year and will do about the same this year probably , I love the fact Morgan will not over spend , Its a firm stand by him that this football club is on the up and run correctly unlike most of the others in the Prem !!

Our pursuit of the player is as open as a book- Mick could not have said enough about the player. I think the club are playing it smart now. Investment was promised and they have more than kept to their word. They can't pomp around saying they will keep buying players they like for the obvious reason clubs will think we have gone back to our silly spending days and hike up the prices. Oddy raises his usual string of good points and optimism. It' not to hear someone else actually has respect for the job the three M's are doing in the running of our club.

We have spent an awful lot of money over the past 2 years. Would be interesting to know exactly where we sit in the spending league. While I'd like to see Mancienne join, I'm glad we don't seem to be over spending. There have been too many horror stories at other clubs.

Carvalhio has gone for stupid money so maybe that shortens the odds on Mancienne arriving???or it may mean Chelsea will take less for him?.He is a good prospect,but that is all,not worth some of the figures being banded about.For 6 million you could get a experienced premier league defender!!.I think a class midfielder is more needed and for that amount of money you could get a good one of those instead of a french loanee arrival!!!Up the Wolves.

3 Million plus increments based on appearances at club and international level (5% => 10% Sell on clause)....... That sounds like a deal to me!
