But the season is over now, and us Chelsea fans know, that the next season will be way more difficult. Man Utd have been spending big on new signings and the transfer window hasnt even opened yet. They already signed the fantastic Memphis Depai of PSV Eidhoven, and are looking to improve the squad even more, with sources suggesting that Louis Van Gaal is interested in Matts Hummels, Ron Vlaar, Aymeric Laporte, Raheem Sterling, Petr Čech and Morgan Schneiderlin.
United will be good next season, and so will Arsenal, and we HAVE TO BE PREPARED. And what worries me the most is that the names we have been linked with are not making any sense to be at the moment. Now its clear that Petr Čech and Didier Drogba wont be continuing to play for us, so I would understand that we need to buy a 2nd choice goalkeeper and a 3rd choice striker. It looks like good old Brad Friedel will be taking Čechs place, but why on earth are we considering Falcao as a replacament for Drogba??? This guy is absolutely pathetic, He has been showing very poor performances since his departure from Madrid, especially in at our rivel club Man United!! It doesnt make any sense, plus he will be sooo expensive to pay!
I think that we dont need to worry about the striker place at all. We can do with Costa+Rémy, and maybe bring back Patrick Bamford (he had an astonishing season at Boro). What I think we need is an extra holding midfielder to team up with Matič. Even though Fabrepass had a fantastic first half of the season, he hasnt been quite doing it since then. Not to mention that Mourinho enjoyed using him next to Hazard and Willian in the trio attacking midfielders. That leaves us with Ramires and Obi Mikel. John Obi Mikel has been in the club since 2006 and I think it might be the time to move on now. He doesnt play too often and when he does, its nothing special. I would also sell Ramires, who hasnt been very good these past two season, which would leave us with two spare places for defensive midfielders.
I would go for Pogba of Juventus. Definitely. Great player, incredible pace, i think he would do well in England, since he was here already. He has proved himself good enough at Juventus this year, taking them to the final of UCL and wining Seria A.
And for the other place ... Ruben Loftus-Cheek. A product of our academy, fans will love him. He has had an amazing season so far in the Youth team, he was one of the main reasons we managed to win the YUCL, and I think he is ready now to make it in the A-team.
Thats it for today guys, that is my wish list, let me know in the comments who would you like to see in the team next year (either from the academy, or from a different club). Enjoy the UCL final today anb KEEP THE BLUE FLAG FLYING HIGH!
