Chelsea fans are not used to being surprised in a pleasant manner too often when it comes to the transfer window. Sure we bought Kante and Batshuayi this summer, but recent memories of Papy Djilobodji and Pato are still fresh wounds.
And so, after failing to sign Romagnoli and Koulibaly, it was a relatively pleasant surprise that we bought David Luiz, instead of another unknown Djilobodji like player. Another man, who also happens to be a Chelsea legend in his own right, too, was very happy with the re-signing of the Brazilian center back.
Former Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup winner with Chelsea, the beast, Michael Essien, has posted a picture of himself and David Luiz from their earlier Chelsea days. The picture was from a match in 2014, which was Essien’s last season at Chelsea.
