Chelsea skipper John Terry has suggested that the Blues will go hard on the summer transfer window, as he’d be surprised if Roman Abramovich and Antonio Conte didn’t end up signing at least six new, big players.
The West London side clinched the Premier League title already a week ago on Friday with a 1-0 win over West Bromwich, but lifted the trophy today at Stamford Bridge after beating Sunderland 5-1 in a very dominant Chelsea win.
Lifting the fifth Premier League title in the club’s history wasn’t only a jubilant moment for the fans and the players, as it was also a very emotional moment for John Terry, who is now set to leave the club after 22 years in the Blues outfit.
The former England skipper suggested that for the upcoming season Chelsea’s head will be working very hard to strengthen the squad to make it in the Champions League too as we return next season.
Terry: “It’s important to keep the players we have. We have CL football next year, we need to really strengthen in the transfer window.”
Terry: “I’m sure the owner will do that. I’d be surprised if there wasn’t five or six big, big players coming in – at least.“
Chelsea have so far been linked with big name signings such as Alvaro Morata, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez and will surely push to strengthen the squad in all ranks.
