Chelsea he is the current European champion. However, despite the fact that it has an impressive squad, it could be even better. if I hadn’t ‘gifted’ these 5 players that today are authentic cracks:
He entered the lower categories of Chelsea in 2006, with just 7 years. At 14, West Ham signed him for free and in the last two seasons he has become a capital footballer with his team. Now he is indisputable with the national team and last year he was about to return to Stamford Bridge … but for 100 million euros.
In 2012 Chelsea signed Eden Hazard from Lille … and his brother Thorgan, who played for Lens. He transferred it to the Belgian Zulte, and after two years he did the same with a Gldabach that he owned in August 2015 for just 8 million euros. There he continued to grow as a player until he became international with his country. Now he is a very important footballer in a team on the level of Borussia Dortmund
With Salah the level of players that Chelsea let slip takes a big leap. Mourinho signed him from Basel in 2014 in exchange for only 13 million euros, but in just two seasons he had already sold him to Rome for 17. In 2017 Klopp gave him the alternative at Liverpool and the Egyptian has been one of the greats stars of a team that has won the Champions League and Premier League and has become one of the best in the world.
Yes, it seems incredible, but De Bruyne could also be on the Chelsea squad. If he was not already lazy today … He was another of the many blues bets in Belgian football, and he was signed to Genk for 8 million in January 2011. He was on loan there for half a year and then a season at Werder Bremen, until Mourinho recruited him to his team in 2013. However, he was not convinced and in June he went to Wolfsburg for 22 kilos. Today he is one of the great stars of Manchester City … and of world football.
It must be painful (or not) for Chelsea to think that 115 million euros have been spent on Lukaku. The player is well worth them, but the pain comes because he had already been a blue player. In August 2011 they paid 15 million to another Belgian team, Anderlecht, for him. It was a year in which it did not stand out and after two assignments to West Ham and Everton they sold it to the toffees for 36 million euros. It seems little seeing that after United paid 85 for him, Inter 74 in 2019 and this summer we already know how much he has returned to Stamford Bridge for.
