Chelsea crashed out of the Champions League this week as they were overcome by a Barcelona side inspired by the ever impressive Leo Messi at the Camp Nou.
The Blues have seen their season become somewhat of a car crash with some shocking results and manager Antonio Conte coming under increasing pressure, and our landlord here in the Tavern thinks a summer overhaul could be on the cards at the Bridge to allow Chelsea to challenge again.
The summer is always an exciting time for plenty of clubs in England, and this year promises to be the same as everyone looks to sign players that will enable them to narrow the gap on runaway Premier League champions elect, Man City.
One player who our punters and landlord have been having a good chat about this week is French striker Karim Benzema, who despite being a regular for Madrid, has always had a nagging doubt hanging over him from the Los Blancos fans.
However, Benzema is a class act, and with Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata of very much the same mould, Antonio Conte might fancy adding a world class striker with other attributes to his ranks.
Benzema is a lethal finisher, possesses bags of pace, and has experience at the top level. He’d be a stunning capture for the Blues if they could pull it off, and a striker who can no doubt go on to bag the goals what can fire the Londoners back into title contention.
Chelsea fans, would you welcome Benzema? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
