Two Shrewd Signings By Chelsea In Recent Times
Chelsea are on the verge of lifting their second Premier League title in 3 years and they stand as one of the best teams in England in recent times. They have been a force to reckon with in the country and have a bright future ahead of them under manager Antonio Conte.
The current first team at the Bridge consists of many players who were bought before the Italian’s reign as Chelsea have been successful with their transfer dealings more often than not. Though they have had to deal with some odd players like Radamel Falcao, they have also made some superb signings in recent times. Here are two such signings that are still keeping the club running smoothly:
The former Leicester City man, was one of the key players in the fairy tale at the King Power last season. He was terrific in the middle of the park for Claudio Ranieri’s side and attracted interest from Chelsea at the start of the current season. Chelsea managed to steal him away from the Foxes, as new manager Antonio Conte was determined to improve his options in the midfield.
Kante continued his dominance at the Stamford Bridge and was named PFA player of the year for the current season. He is currently helping Chelsea to the Premier League title. After just one year into his time at Stamford Bridge, the 26-year old is one of the most effective transfers in recent times for Chelsea.
The Spanish striker was prolific during his time at Atletico Madrid and he joined Jose Mourinho at Chelsea a couple of years ago. The current Manchester United boss snapped him up at the start of the 2014-15 season and managed to lift the Premier League title in the first season during his second stint with the London club.
He stands as the top goal scorer for Chelsea this season, with 20 goals in all competitions and has already scored 51 goals in just 85 league appearances for the Blues. He is winning them their 2nd title in 3 years and is surely an impact transfer for Chelsea. He has been linked with an exit recently and will be a hard player to replace if the Blues do not manage to keep him at the club for another season.
