The next 19 days could be crucial to how our season pans out.
We’re faced with the ludicrous situation whereby the transfer window in the Premier League is closed but is open, until the end of the month, in Europe.
Which in essence, means that European clubs could sign our players but unless we can find an out-of-contract player, we can’t bring anyone else in.
Today, lurking in the pages of the Express, is the suggestion that Real Madrid are preparing a huge bid, said to be of the magnitude, of £200 million, to try and persuade Chelsea to sell them our jewel-in-the-crown, Eden Hazard.
Whilst, so far, Chelsea have refused to even discuss any move for the 27-year-old, could there be a possibility that such a huge offer could be too good to refuse?
Here at Vital Chelsea, we hope not, a Chelsea without Hazard is unthinkable, but our fears are that if such an offer is made, the Belgian could, like Thibaut Courtois, be tempted to leave.
If that were the case we’d be left with £200 million in the bank but not able to spend it until January.
Who decided on what we feel is this ludicrous transfer deadline day ruling?
