Chelsea’s transfer policy has been a topic of huge debate in the Transfer Tavern over the last few weeks. After a slow start to the window, frustration was clear amongst fans, and Antonio Conte didn’t appear very happy for a while either.
In stark contrast, at clubs like Man Utd and Man City, optimism has been sky high. Man Utd managed to land Alexis Sanchez in what was undoubtedly the biggest transfer of the month, whilst the capture of Aymeric Laporte was a dream deal for our resident Citizens. Undoubtedly, both of these clubs had magnificent windows, and the management of each team deserves a lot of credit.
However, over the last few days, things have all turned around for the Blues. They’ve managed to pick up a few new players whilst also making a few other smart decisions, and now – with the transfer window officially closed – the Blues are looking in pretty good shape.
You could, of course, argue that Man Utd and Man City’s windows – as is the media narrative – were magnificent, but our landlord feels confident in saying that Chelsea, in fact, had the best January window in the Premier League.
