It now seems pretty much certain that Diego Costa will sign for Chelsea. If he hasn’t already done so before you read this. In fact, he may even have put pen to paper before I finish writing this article. The timescale on his transfer seems to change daily – from “before the World Cup” to
So David Luiz has gone. No more surging runs from the back, no more free kicks ballooned into Row Z, no more crunching last-minute tackles or calamitous errors. No more songs about having curly hair or letting him have carnal relationships with our partners, and thankfully no more interminable debates at half-time about whether he’s
We’re reportedly closing on a 3 player, triple buy from La Liga champions, Atletico. With the recently confirmed sale of David Luiz to PSG for a somewhat mental fee of around £50m; it’s safe to say we have some money to play with this transfer window. The first and probably most popular part of the

It is a matter of some regret that two of the world’s top strikers were available for transfer last summer, and neither ended up at Chelsea – a club which sorely needed a new centre-forward. The Blues were outbid for the services of Edinson Cavani and Falcao by the new-found French financial muscle of PSG
Jose Mourino has now had a whole year to examine the Chelsea squad. This summer he must reshape it more in his own image – albeit with whatever requirements Roman Abramovich tasked him with on his appointment, in terms of playing style. In order to make room for new players, several will clearly have to
Jose Mourinho has a lot to do this summer in terms of replenishing Chelsea’s squad, but perhaps the hardest of all the jobs on his “to-do” list must surely be filling the boots of Ashley Cole. After eight years at Stamford Bridge and more than 200 appearances for the Blues, Cole is moving on after
Chelsea left fans disappointed in the just concluded season due to the fact that the team got close to the Premier League and Champions League titles but did not end up with anything. For a team under transition it did remarkably well. This was the first time since 2010 that Chelsea will end up with
