If I was a manager of a high profiled club like The Blues are I would go to Brazil in person and watch the players I want to buy in action. This way I would prevent the club from buying players that had shown absolutely nothing in the World Cup. I don't understand how could we purchase the spanish duo Fabregas+Costa. They were both rubbish. So far I have the feeling that Chelsea is weakening their team, more than strenghting it. Our beloved David Luiz has left to PSG for 50 milion pounds, being the most expensive defender in the history of football. For some reason, Mourinho keeps selling players that the fans love. (Juan Mata)
Kurt Zouma, a young talented defender, should probably take David's place in the team as a third choice defender. The fourth purchase to our team so far has been Mario Palašič. I'm not sure what to expect of this guy, but he'll probably just go to Vitesse.
I hope that some players, such as Lucas Piazón, Patrick Bamfrod, Nathaniel Chalobah, Marko Mari, Oriol Romeu or Romelu Lukaku, that were on loan last season can proove to Mou that they are good enough to stay at Stamford Bridge for the upcoming season.
Probably the most expected return to the Bridge is the return of the atlético's "king" in goal Thibaut Courtois. Some people expect this young belgian to be the first choice goalkeeper. I hope this won't happen. I think that Petr Čech has proven more than once that he's much better that Courtois. Plus the attitude of the belgian is pretty irrotating as well.
So basically, I think that the transfer window isn't going very well so far for us. If you look at the singings club's like Arsenal, Man City, or Man United have made, we can be pretty afraid.
Here our some other players that we might try to sign this summer: Filipe Luís, Paul Pogba, Didier Drogba, Eliaquim Mangala.
These players look more like the guys I'd like to see in the Chelsea colours next season, and I really think they would prove some use to the team, because the positions of these players don't look that strenghtened.
Left back: César Azpilicueta, Ryan Betrand, (Filipe Luís)
Centre back: John Terry, Gary Cahill, Kurt Zouma, Nathan Aké, (Eliaquim Mangala)
Holding midfielder: Cesc Fabregas, John Obi Mikel, Ramires, Oriol Romeu, (Paul Pogba)
Striker: Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, Romelu Lukaku, Diego Costa, (Didier Drogba)
I think that Ryan will leave, if Luís comes. It will be for the best, Ryan is a fantastic player, and deserves to play in the first team of a decent club in Premier League.
I don't feel that the centre back position is still good enough. John Terry is fantastic, but quite old already, and this looks like his last season at the Bridge, so I don't think he'll be able to play in every game. So this means Gary will be the number one centre back. And Kurt Zouma, and Nathan Aké are certainly not ready enough to step up for John if needed.
The holding midfielder position will be a problem. I still don't agree with the depart of Lampard from the Bridge, and everyone will be really sorry he isn't there for use this season. I don't know what the boss's plans for this spot are, but I never thought neither Mikel or Ramires are good enough to play for Chelsea, so Pogba would be a real reinforcement to the team.
Yeah it seems like we have enough strikers, let's just hope at least one of them will be capable of scoring goals. If King Didier returns, it won't be like he'll be playing all the games, cause he would probably work as a coach/player.
Well I can just say I'm really interested what will happen in this transfer window. KTBFFH
