It is likely to be all change at Stamford Bridge this summer, and the Blues in the pub are excited…
Not only is a historic Premier League title win on the horizon, but it seems likely that a few new faces could move to Stamford Bridge this summer as Conte continues his overhaul – but perhaps the Blues should look towards a former manager in pursuit of summer signings.
More specifically, perhaps Chelsea should look towards a player that has failed to make an impact under Jose Mourinho – Luke Shaw.
Rated at £17 million by TransferMarkt, it hasn’t really happened for Shaw at Man Utd so far, and it might be the perfect time for him to make a change. Of course, there are doubts in the pub over whether he is still up to the challenge, but our landlord thinks that all the pieces would fit together perfectly for a move to London for Shaw.
With Chelsea set to re-enter the Champions League, additional depth is vital – and the left-back spot is an important hole that needs filling. Beyond Marcos Alonso, the Blues lack depth – and Shaw could be perfect for that. At Southampton, he was one of Europe’s best talents, and a change of scenery could be all he needs.
What’s more, his homegrown status would endear him to the Chelsea faithful – whilst also increasing the Blues’ quota for such a player.
His main issues in recent months have been a lack of form and a lack of fitness, two issues that Conte has proven that he is excellent at solving. Chelsea’s fitness record this season has been impeccable, whilst he has also turned the Blues from an underperforming outfit into one of Europe’s most impressive sides.
Indeed, a move for Shaw would be a shock – but when taken in context – the deal would make a lot of sense.
