The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been locked in debate this week over who they want to sign for the club this summer. Over the last few years, Chelsea have brought in some remarkable talent, with the likes of Alvaro Morata, N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger improving the quality on offer at Stamford Bridge.
This summer then, naturally, many are expecting the club to invest again – but the club’s targets remain under wraps.
However, one player that fans are clearly keen to see move to Chelsea is Luke Shaw. The BBC reported earlier this week that the Englishman is on course to leave Man Utd this summer after yet another fallout with Jose Mourinho.
In light of that news, our landlord polled Chelsea fans on the notion of the Blues signing him – and a whopping 65% of supporters responded positively to the prospect.
Clearly, then, a lot of fans are keen to see him at Stamford Bridge, and it’s easy to see why. He’s homegrown, which is a huge bonus, and at just 22-years-old, the 6ft defender still has years to improve his game. What’s more, he’d also likely come in as a replacement for Marcos Alonso, who has yet to really become much of a fan favourite amongst Blues fans.
It’s likely that those who voted against the deal have considered his fall at Man Utd, and whilst that’s fair, Chelsea fans know more than any other club just how divisive Jose Mourinho can be, and so there is no telling just how much Shaw could improve under a manager like Conte.
It’s clearly a move that a lot of fans want to see, but the Blues boss and the Chelsea board will have the final say.
