While likes of Real Madrid making huge noise in the transfer market by splashing out huge amount of money on just two players, some Chelsea supporters view Chelsea's inactivity as a negative thing.
You see, we're not active enough and we've "failed" to bring in "established" name. For once we cannot be accused of ruining Football though...
Let's not get overly excited and when you think about it, Carlo Ancelotti will officially start working for CFC early July, yet we've been linked to ones of Pato, Ribery, David Villa, Maicon, number of Seria A soon to be geriatric players such as Pirlo and countless others.
When we examine what transpired so far is the situation that bad?
Yes, Deco is not happy and trying to go to Inter Milan. He is moaning and groaning about his "unhappiness" and about treatment of Scholari. Carvalho is strongly linked with the same move, both players would love to be reunited with Jose. We may or may not get player in return + cash, again only rumors so far but deal seems to be imminent.
Sturrige signing is all but done, tribunal will determine fee that we're to pay for the 19 year old. He surely will give us pace and another option in attack. His wage demands is another topic of discussion, but there is no denial that he's got loads of potential to shine.
Malouda has been resigned to a two year contracr, It most likely signals that we've failed to work out suitable deal for Ribery and that he will be going to Real Madrid, even though at the moment he is "not for sale". If this is the case, I'd expect Bosingwa to stay with us.
With Joe Cole back in action and possibility of adding Zhirkov, we might have winger situation sorted. It would be nice to see wingers as affective as Robben and Duff were under Jose.
"The Duck" Pato, said that he will speak to Ancelotti before deciding his future, thus speculation in regards to him staying at AC or coming to CFC is a bit premature.
Tevez saga, should be finished in 10 days, or so his agent says. Apparently we're in the running but realistically he'll probably join Man City, which would be pretty big win for Sparky.
Personally I'd prefer Chelsea fill in few positions that we lack enough cover for. Young keeper to be Petr's understudy would be great. We also should concentrate on younger players that could be developed and stay away from blockbuster deals even though, some fans might demand it. We have strong enough squad to compete for all of the trophies next season.
