Chelsea have not just been spending but in addition to this they are spending wisely. Rather than spending one-hundred and eight-million pounds on Jadon Sancho they spent only about eighty-million of that on Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech. In addition to those guys they also brought in Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Xavier Mbuyamba, Thiago Silva, and Malang Sarr. Keep in mind that the last three of the aforementioned players were all free transfers. Chelsea are also apparently get close to the signing of Edouard Mendy. However despite all this money being spent some would argue Chelsea could get even stronger. How you would ask? Well possibly another signing or two! Also some academy kids breaking through.
Despite the current strength of Chelsea’s current squad there could still be improvements. Chelsea have been linked with yet more players. In this article you will a realistic team that could be put together by the end of the 2021 summer transfer window. In addition to this the article will also include possible sales of players.
Now let’s get started…
Now that Chelsea have bought players they also need to lose the dead weight. Dead weight like Emerson, Zappacosta, etc. Also players that are not needed like Jorginho.
Since Roma sold Patrik Schick to Leverkusen I think they would now have the money to buy someone like Jorginho and maybe even Emerson. Weirdly enough its like a cycle where Roma sell Schick to Leverkusen, then Leverkusen sell Havertz to Chelsea, and finally Chelsea sell Jorginho and Emerson to Roma.
And as for the rest them – Victor Moses, Davide Zappacosta, and Danny Drinkwater. They should be sold this summer. Assuming all of these players are eventually sold the Blues would bring in around ninety-million pounds.
If Chelsea get this money I would say they buy Declan Rice and Edouard Mendy for around ninety-million pounds which would massively strengthen the squad.
Along with Chelsea’s other players in the squad, I believe that’s what they will enter and finish the season with. My prediction is that Chelsea will finish in third and be in a title challenge for the most of the year, get to the semi-finals in the Champions League, and win an FA Cup.
This would be another successful season for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea in my opinion.
Also lets assume that Kepa has another awful season and is sold for around thirty-million pounds. To fill up the backup spot to Edouard Mendy I believe that Jamie Cumming might get a shot. I have high hopes for Jamie and I believe he can become a quality keeper. I’m also speculating that by this point Chelsea will have sold Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. Because of needing money and disappointment in Christensen’s case.
By this point Tomori will also have had a loan to Everton which would probably be successful and in my opinion should be half of the center-back partnership. Lets also say Chelsea pick up Thiago Silva’s option for anothor year. This means Chelsea have three center back’s currently which means they would need one more. Enter Ethan Ampadu. For the season Ampadu would have been on loan at Sheffield Utd. I have no doubt that if he gets minutes he will be successful therefore showing Frank that Chelsea don’t need to splash even more money on another defender.
I’m sure there will also be some academy products to break through like Tino Anjorin or Ian Maatsen.
With all of this talent, and chemistry Chelsea should be near unstoppable. Assuming nothing out of the ordinary happens this team will be a top team in Europe, winning the Premier League, Champions League, or at least be the top two favorites for every available trophy.
