I have been reading some very disturbing news about Chelsea transfer plans lately, enough for me to want to pull out the hairs on my head.

Chelsea is selling Nemanja Matic to Manchester United (f all clubs) to make way for Bakayoko.

If true, this would be one of the most self-destructive decisions Chelsea would have made to date in my own humble opinion.

First, you don’t dispose of your potable water because of sign of rain.

Suppose it does not rain again?

Suppose with all the hype, Bakayoko is not better than Matic?

We all know Matic is better than his performance last year. Suppose he regains his form? Then he would combine with Mourinho to undermine our struggles. Maybe we would then go back and beg to buy him for £100 million like we are now doing for Romelu Lukaku?

Chelsea are now known for fielding the first XI all the time. We don’t even know the capabilities of many players we sell or loan out because they never get enough playing time for proper assessment. That is how we lost Keven De Bruyne and many others who are doing great elsewhere.

I hope Salah doesn’t come back to haunt us too. I am a true Chelsea fan but I am a realist.

As of today, Chelsea’s so called first XI that won the Premier League (and we are supposed to build upon) can hardly beat the second XI of Real Madrid (please check out the line-up before you start insulting me).

Yet, Real Madrid are lurking around to take our major players, Eden Hazard and N`Golo Kante.

If we sincerely plan to be a great team that would be fighting for FA, Premier and Champions League Cups every year, we should strive to have first XXII, not eleven active players and eleven cheerleaders in jersey.

For a team to be great, each position should have at least two players competing assiduously for it, not one player playing every minute of every game. This does not encourage hard work.


Let him compete with Bakayoko. there are enough games for them to play.

A word is enough for the wise.
