Chelsea once again gave us plenty to talk about during a transfer window, and look set to do exactly the same in the summer.
Jose Mourinho took further steps towards shaping his Chelsea squad exactly the way he wants, and not without controversy.
Mourinho sanctioned one of the most surprising Premier League deals of all time last month, when he allowed Juan Mata to join Manchester United in a deal worth £37 million.
Kevin De Bruyne was also sold for a huge profit, whilst the Blues snatched Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah from under the noses of Liverpool, whilst also resigning Nemanja Matic from Benfica for £21 million.
Although the Serb’s man of the match performance in the heart of the midfield during the 1-0 win over Manchester City suggests it was money very well spent.
Mourinho continues to insist it is not a primary objective for Chelsea to win the title this season, and claims finishing runners-up to Manchester City would be a fine achievement.
The Special One insists next season will be the time the Blues are in a position to be considered favourites on all fronts, once he has had a another transfer window to bring in the players he wants.
The press have already begun speculating exactly who that may be, so here at the Transfer Tavern we have taken a look at 5 summer swoops that the tabloids are already linking Chelsea with.
