The transfer deadline day is over and it was rather quiet for Chelsea as compared to what was expected, though they did sign a few players. The Blues did not do any major business on Tuesday, as their bids for Everton’s John Stones were rejected by the Merseyside club. Despite that, manager Jose Mourinho landed Papy Djilobodji from Nantes and Michael Hector from Reading as well.
However, the west London side also saw two big bids being rejected by Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain for Brazilian international Marquinhos.
You can see how Chelsea fans reacted to the news on Twitter below, though some of them had a shocking transfer target on their mind.
Some of the fans went ahead on social media and stated that the club needed to bring back Marquinhos’ PSG team-mate David Luiz back to Stamford Bridge, looking at the condition of their current defence and the fact that the Portuguese boss has now signed two unknown faces.
Here are some of the reactions of the fans:

Club thought Stones was in the bag, didn’t have a plan B, and now signing unknown defenders and making desperate bids for Marquinhos.

Marquinhos is a great talent but it just looks desperate.

If you rearrange “Marquinhos” you can spell “saq Mourinho”. Coincidence? I think not.

Signing a no name CB from a midtable French club and championship defender from Reading, this can’t be real? #CFC
