Transfer Window 2017/18- Winners and Losers: Chelsea

 

 

While Chelsea has sent out a host of players on loan and honestly looked like being short on the position at certain areas throughout the window, Chelsea have gone on and invested in the right positions, it might be contentious to say whether they have invested in the right players. But a deadline day move for Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta has just blatantly highlighted Chelsea’s woes this season. Unwilling to pay up the cash which was done by both the Manchester Clubs over the summer, Chelsea have had to settle for the second best by far in all departments.

 

Transfer INs: 

Alvaro Morata | Forward (ST) | £55.80m | From Real Madrid

Tiemoue Bakayoko | Midfielder (CM) | £36m | From Monaco

Danny Drinkwater | Midfielder (CM) | £34.11m | From Leicester City

Antonio Rudiger | Defender (CB) | £31.5m | From AS Roma 

Davide Zappacosta | Fullback (RWB) | £22.5m | From Torino

Willy Caballero | Goalkeeper (GK) | Free | From Manchester City

 

Transfer Outs: 

Diego Costa| Forward(ST) | £49.5m | To At. Madrid

Nemanja Matic | Midfielder (CM) | £40.12m | To Manchester United

Nathan Ake | Defender (CB) | £18m | To Bournemouth

Juan Cuadrado | Midfielder (RM) | £18m | To Juventus

Asmir Begovic | Goalkeeper (GK) | £10.2m | To Bournemouth

Bertrand Traore | Forward (ST) | £9m | To Lyon

Nathaniel Chalobah | Midfielder (CM) | £5.7m | To Watford

Christian Atsu | Midfielder (LW) | £6.57 | To Newcastle

John Terry | Defender (CB) | Free Transfer | To Aston VIlla

Loic Remy | Foward (ST) | Free Transfer | To Las Pamas

 

Their primary targets Leonardo Bonucci, Romelu Lukaku, Alex Sandro, Benjamin Mendy, Serge Aurier, Oxlade Chamberlain have all decided to reject a lucrative deal from a club which is the reigning English Champions and have elected to go elsewhere, with some even joining close rivals. Chelsea’s performance in the transfer window has been below par for not only their failure to bring in new players but failing to keep the old ones. This summer window saw Chelsea’s first team midfielder Nemanja Matic being plucked off by a potential rival in Manchester United, also the failure to persuade youngsters or guarantee them any kind of game time has lead to a mass exodus including some top young talents like Traore, Chalobah, Zouma, etc.

Chelsea’s summer transfer window has been below par, with many of their player acquisitions being second-best in the best case scenario. Hope that doesn’t reflect on in their performances on the pitch.

 

Our Verdict: LOSERS.
