The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that their season comes to an abrupt end after a string of bad performances recently. The future of Antonio Conte remains in doubt but that cannot stop the Blues spending big this summer to amend this poor campaign.
It started badly and it seems to be ending that way as well as the Blues are set to miss out on the top four. A number of players seem to have gone missing at the vital stages but it seems Chelsea have ultimately been left to rue their bad transfer mistakes last summer.
The perfect way to resolve that would be to have the most successful summer yet and our punters think that Joao Cancelo would be the perfect player to start their transfer business. Cancelo is a 23-year-old right-back currently on loan at Inter Milan from Valencia. The Portuguese defender has played in 21 Serie A games thus far and has been a big reason behind keeping 9 clean sheets in those appearances.
Davide Zappacosta is just one bad example of the summer business Chelsea completed last summer and with Cancelo set to return to Valencia in June, this could be the perfect time for Chelsea to act quickly and bring in a good quality right-back. Valued at £22.50 million by Transfermarkt, Cancelo offers an abundance of pace up and down the wing and is good at defending, unlike the usual modern day right-back.
Chelsea will need to quickly evaluate what’s gone wrong this season so they can return to the helm of English football once again. The capture of Joao Cancelo would certainly be a great way to start and our punters believe the 23-year-old would slot in perfectly at Stamford Bridge.
