For the folks who were rooting for Bamford to stay at Chelsea, I bear some bad news for you!
Although, it’s not yet official, but tabloids are reporting that Patrick Bamford has agreed a year-long loan deal with Crystal Palace. Well, at least he gets to stay in the Premier League and gain valuable experience before he is hopefully ready to lit the league on fire with the Blues!
According to the reports published in the Guardian:
“Chelsea have allowed Patrick Bamford, who was named the Championship player of the year following an impressive loan move at Middlesbrough, to join Crystal Palace for the season.
“The 21-year-old had a medical at Selhurst Park on Monday before a move to Alan Pardew’s side.
“Bamford’s move is set to earn him a long-term deal at Stamford Bridge with the striker in the final year of his current deal.”
With the current strikeforce of Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao, there was no way Patrick Bamford could have made it at the Bridge, just yet! The Englishman had a stellar season at the Championship level with Middlesbrough where he scored 19 goals in 44 appearances, but Premier League is a big step-up!
Jose Mourinho wouldn’t trust an inexperienced player like Bamford to start the majority of the games at Chelsea, that’s why, a loan move looks like a sensible decision for both the partied involved.
Now, only if Bamford can prove himself with the Alan Pardew side, have some patience, and most importantly, have an attitude that is entirely opposite to that of a certain “complete striker” who plays at Goodison Park now, I say he has a pretty good chance to make it at the Bridge!
Good luck Bamford! We will keep an eye on you and remember a hat-trick against an Arsene Wenger side would always help you to get into the good graces of Mourinho!
