Things are starting to come together for Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.
The impressive victory over previously unbeaten at home Manchester City put down a real marker for the rest of the season. And that was followed by the ‘Eden Hazard show’ yesterday as the young Belgian took Newcastle United apart with consummate ease to leap to the top of the Premier League.
Now talk in the Football Transfer Tavern has turned to who our punters think Chelsea should look to in the summer as Mourinho continues to build his own team at Stamford Bridge, despite the Blues possessing probably the strongest squad in the league.
The Blues let Spanish international Juan Mata depart to rivals Manchester United in the recent transfer window, but Mohamed Salah and Nemanja Matic both joined Chelsea as the squad became stronger still.
The next transfer window is likely to see the revolving door at the Bridge back in action again with Mourinho already linked with a host of top players.
However despite these many suggestions of the sort of players that will almost certainly break the bank, one punter in the bar believes that the former Real Madrid boss should also check out the quality of players who are coming to end of their contracts and could be available on the cheap in the summer.
