Now Cahill hasn’t been Chelsea’s best defender for the past two seasons. So let us compare Romagnoli’s defensive prowess with the captain John Terry. Again, Squawka says, Terry won 17 tackles last season, while Romagnoli won 37!! Even at headed duels, Romagnoli leads Terry 74 to 48.
So Romagnoli does seem the real deal, isn’t it? Whether Milan now gives in to the temptation of selling him for £49 million is for time to tell, but if it happens, it surely will be a huge upgrade to Chelsea’s present defence. But we have to be patient and see if the deal goes through in January.
