After a difficult campaign, the Chelsea fans here are starting to feel a bit better. Indeed, life is never simple at Stamford Bridge, though things are looking up and Antonio Conte continues to prove just what an excellent coach he is.
Still, it’s all to play for as the Blues travel to Barcelona in little under a fortnight and Conte also travels to Manchester twice in the Premier League as he looks to ensure a strong showing on both major fronts this season.
But, this will all be in vain if the Blues don’t manage to secure themselves a top-four spot for next season, in what’s turning out to be a very competitive campaign for European places.
And, Chelsea fans would love to welcome a whole host of quality additions to Stamford Bridge next season, after only just getting over the disappointment of their failed title defence in the current campaign.
Although, brighter times do appear to be on the horizon for the London club, as American wonderkid Christian Pulisic is a summer target for the Blues.
Rated at a staggering £40.5m by Transfermarkt, the 19-year-old looks to have all the makings of a future star.
Therefore, here’s TWO reasons as to why Roman Abramovich splashing the cash on £40.5m-rated Christian Pulisic would be Chelsea’s best signing in years…
Pulisic is still in his teen years with plenty of progression still to be had in his football career, yet has already earned countless caps for one of the world’s most aspiring footballing countries in the United States.
Indeed, it only takes one observation of the American’s performance to notice that he’s already reached the maturity levels of the stars of today, with comparisons being made between the youngster and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard. Something that’s excited our local residents here in the Tavern, after seeing the magic produced by the Belgian in years gone by.
Therefore, should the Blues manage to capture the services of the teen sensation, then Stamford Bridge can look forward to playing host to a natural-born star for years to come.
BUILD FOR FUTURE
The possible signing of the teenager can be seen as a building process for the Blues, with the aim being that Pulisic is to reach his maximum potential with a prospering Chelsea squad around him.
A plan that could bring huge rewards for Roman Abramovich in the future, with Champions League and domestic success being the likely outcome.
Indeed, it could see the Pensioners uncover the successor for Eden Hazard, a player who the Blues always believed was irreplaceable for the club.
Although, the American won’t only provide a like-for-like switch for Hazard, but can also fit right into the swing of things as an established attacker in his current form, to create a mouthwatering partnership that already has supporters mesmerised.
