Jose Mourinho stated emphatically that the transfer window was closed for Chelsea.
It’s hard to reconcile that statement with today’s announcement £22M signing of Ghanian Left Back Baba Rahman.
Chelsea has been thin at left back since the departure of Ashley Cole, but now after second choice defender Luis Filipe’s return to Atletico Madrid, Chelsea have zero left footed defenders on their bench.
Chelsea doesn’t seem to be done just yet either. A £30M bid for Everton’s central defender and future England hero John Stones is currently being weighed by the Merseyside club.
£50M on defenders alone AFTER the ‘transfer window is closed?’ This only makes sense to The Special One, and with Roman Abramovich along for the ride, Mourinho’s mind is the only one that matters.
