A 10th placed finish this season for Chelsea means there will be no European football at Stamford Bridge next season – and our Blues fans here in the Transfer Tavern are only just coming to terms with it….
After a turbulent season in South west London which saw the departure of Jose Mourinho early in the campaign, the club now have a summer to regroup and can look forward to the arrival of new manager Antonio Conte following the end of this summers European Championship’s – a tournament in which Conte’s Italy side impressed, despite going out on penalties to Germany in the Quarter-finals.
Conte is certain to attract a number of high profile players – with the former Juve boss having a solid reputation as one of the best managers in Europe – however may find it difficult to hold on to those already at the club.
Despite no European football meaning Chelsea can focus solely on the league and domestic competitions, the big stars at the Bridge will be craving the Champions League and hence may opt for pastures new this transfer window.
Our landlord thinks these FOUR are almost a dead-cert to leave the Blues this summer. Do you agree?
