We have quite a few number of loanees currently plying their trade all over the Europe. But if you inquire any Chelsea fan as to who deserves a shot at the first team next season; most of them would definitely root for Patrick Bamford! Reason?
Well, the 21-year-old has been in a scintillating form for the Championship side, Middlesbrough this season. The English Striker has scored 17 goals for Aitor Karanka’s side and his incredible performance against Wolves last weekend where he scored one goal and set up the other, saw the Championship side push strongly for the PL promotion.
So, with a young Striker who is scoring bucket loads of goals and has just over a year left in his contract, what would you do? Obviously, you would offer him a fresh, new, improved deal and tie him for few more years. Fortunately, that’s exactly what Chelsea is doing!
According to the Daily Mail, the Striker is currently rumored to be earning somewhere around 7500 Pounds/week and the new deal would see him with a significant pay rise and would also tie him up with us for the next five years, which he definitely deserves with the way he has been lighting up the Championship!
The Englishman, who can also play on the Right Wing, has been regarded as Chelsea’s answer to Tottenham’s Harry Kane; that’s not to say we are competing with the midtable team like Spurs! But still, it would be incredibly satisfying as a fan to watch the likes of Patrick Bamford establish himself as a regular in the first-team and start for us alongside Diego Costa for many years!
