Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are overjoyed with news their club has opened talks to sign Monaco’s prodigious attacker Bernardo Silva as part of plans to challenge for next season’s Champions League title.

Indeed, Chelsea will likely be looking to add to a title-winning squad this summer and considering how badly that went last time in 2015, the west London club need to put some serious money on the table to bring in top talent and Silva, rated at a staggering £70million, fits the bill.
Here are two clear reasons why the potential club-record signing would be perfect for Chelsea.
