Chelsea Reportedly In For The Belgian Midfielder – Roman Fly Out To Russia Personally

We have already acquired the services of Radamel Falcao and Asmir Begovic which means our primary need has been sorted out. We needed someone to replace the departed Drogba and Petr Cech, and we have done that with a couple of smart signings.

So, where does that leave us?

We don’t really have a hole to fill in our already good squad, but we still need a few players at different positions to upgrade our team. Central Midfield is one such position where we could do well with some upgradation. Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas are our primary option in the center, but there’s a drop in quality with Ramires and Obi Mikel as the backup. So, a Central Midfielder might not be a necessity but a good addition will only make us stronger.

According to a report published in the Telegraph:

“Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will fly out to Russia personally to secure the signing of Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel.

Abramovich, we are told, will lead the negotiations with Zenit president Alexander Dyukov Valeryevich.”

We have heard of Jose Mourinho’s persuasive “phone call” but Roman flying out to secure a deal? Well, this is a first!

So, about Axel Witsel!

The Belgian is a better version of Marouane Fellaini who can play as a holding midfielder or a Central midfielder. The 26-year-old is a regular member of the Belgian side and if we can acquire his transfer from Zenit, I would say our summer transfer window has been a hit because this guy is very, very good and definitely improve our squad!

Having Axel Witsel also means we can play a 4-3-3 formation and choke the hell out of the opposition with our dominant and physical play in the Center. That would be so much fun! Cesc Fabregas can have more freedom to make his impetus runs while Willian can compete with someone in a game called, “Who has the better hairs”!

Of course, having more Belgian can never be bad and I would welcome Witsel with arms wide open. Hopefully, the news turns out to be true as Witsel and Matic can be our answer to United’s Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin!
