Chelsea has made a staggering investment of £1 billion, but surprisingly, their performance has declined. It is truly astonishing to see the number of fans, journalists, and pundits who predicted Chelsea to finish in the top four this season.
“Currently, there are at least eight teams in the league that are better than us (in my opinion, City, Arsenal, Brighton, Newcastle, Brentford, Villa, Liverpool, and Utd),” fans cry as the season starts.
How much money did Chelsea spend this transfer window
“At the beginning of the season, I had the team finishing 9th, which would have been an improvement from last year. However, the club has spent £330 million this summer, in addition to the £600 million spent last year, and yet Chelsea is now far worse than they were just two seasons ago.”
It’s difficult to comprehend how so much money can be spent and the team’s performance deteriorates. It’s truly unbelievable.
Chelsea spending spree
Fans were praising Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart for signing Caicedo and Lavia, but considering the amount of money spent and the current state of the squad, they should be held accountable and possibly sacked!
“Take a look at the current Blues squad and try to identify the quality that this money has brought. We now have a midfield made up of inexperienced youngsters and three defensive midfielders, all purchased in the same transfer window.
Worst Chelsea signings ever
“How much playing time do you think Ugochukwu will get now with Lavia and Caicedo ahead of him? He will probably become the forgotten third choice and might even be sent out on loan. He cost £23 million, but did you even know that the Blues signed him?
Furthermore, the signing of Sanchez for £25 million, when Raya was reportedly available for £30 million, demonstrates the club’s incompetence from top to bottom.
“Although I understand why anyone wouldn’t want to sign for Chelsea over Arsenal at this moment.
Chelsea spent £1 billion record
The lack of a coherent transfer policy is evident, with the only criteria seemingly being “Are they young and can we overpay for them?”.
“We have also offloaded all our experienced midfielders and sold Hall to Newcastle, who could have been a reliable backup for Chilwell, considering we know he will eventually get injured.
“But don’t worry, we have Cucurella, who cost a whopping £55 million. And let’s not even get started on Mudryk.
Overall, it is clear that Chelsea’s management and decision-making have been marked by incompetence throughout the club, resulting in a squad lacking in quality and cohesion despite the exorbitant amount of money spent.
