For the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, a major revamp is needed this summer. This season simply hasn’t been good enough, and they aren’t going to tolerate another poor campaign.
Big changes are likely to come at Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Conte’s future looking uncertain, but our landlord is expecting a few changes in terms of the playing personnel too.
One area that is likely to see a change is the attack. The Blues haven’t been ruthless enough going forward, and so further quality is certainly needed.
One player that could be available this summer is Anthony Martial, who is rated at £58.5 million by Transfer Markt. According to RMC Sport earlier this week, he wants to leave Man Utd this summer, and our landlord thinks that a move to Chelsea makes perfect sense.
Clearly, it’s something that fans want to see too, with a whopping 77% of recently polled fans responding positively to the prospect of a deal. We recently released a poll on the very topic, and it’s fair to say the results were very one-sided, with just 23% of fans against the idea of a deal.
Martial has proven his lethality this season with Man Utd, having picked up 9 goals under difficult circumstances. Offering driving runs, brilliant technical ability and a decent work rate, the Frenchman is the perfect attacker.
Our resident Blues are already licking their lips at the prospect of him linking up with Eden Hazard.
Whether Chelsea look to move for him, or indeed if Man Utd even want to sell him, remains to be seen, but Chelsea supporters clearly want to see it happen.
