Chelsea have had a poor season after winning the Premier League title last season and look like they are now going to miss out on even making the top four.
Manager Antonio Conte seems to have lost his way a bit and looks a man who knows he is out of a job come the summer, and our landlord thinks this summer is going to be a huge one for the Blues if they want to get back into having any sort of success next time out.
Here in the Tavern, some of our punters have been having some in depth discussions with our landlord this week about which players they see as vital to the improvement of the Chelsea squad in the summer, and they’ve concluded that signing a player of proven world class ability is a must.
One such player who would fit the mould and be a sure fire hit for the Blues is Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, who continues to be touted and rumoured to be on his way out of Spain.
For some reason, Bale’s time in Spain has been littered with niggling injuries and fans not quite buying into what he offers to the cause for Los Blancos. Bale would slot in perfectly at Chelsea and his development into a player who can play across all the forward positions is something which Chelsea can utilise, especially if they do end up losing star performer Eden Hazard.
A class act and a player who no doubt wants to prove himself once again over in England, Bale would be the big name signing who could really help Chelsea close the gap on City this summer.
