Top ten Chelsea transfers ‘that got away’
With a lack of action this week due to the international break, Chelsea supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are discussing past results and players who have starred at Stamford Bridge.
Discussion quickly moves onto the transfers that so nearly happened but for some reason fell apart before they were agreed. On the odd occasion Chelsea felt a transfer was done that they advertised shirts for the new players. But then the transfer failed to happen and Chelsea were left with red faces.
After Roman Abramovich arrived at the club Chelsea have been continuously linked with moves to Stamford Bridge before signing for another top European side. Some of these players have left Chelsea fans imagining what could have been.
There has been great success after the Russian’s arrival but with some of these players it could have been so much more. The ever-changing managerial position has meant that each new manager has wanted to bring his players into the club, and they have not always succeeded.
