As a person who eats sleeps and breaths football, summer is like an early Christmas for me because of the summer transfer window, I will do the same routine everyday, wake up check Sky Sports, come on WAGNH, and then go on Facebook and look through the many, many Chelsea and football pages I follow on Facebook for any transfer rumour I may find as small as it may be.
Chelsea has been my club since I was born which was 18 years ago, my gosh I'm getting old, anyway throughout these years I have seen many players come and go in the transfer market, from the greats like the Didier Drogba's and Ashley Cole's to the Asier Del Horno's and Khalid Boularouz's. The transfer market is extremely exciting especially for a club like Chelsea, is it so exciting to the point where when we agreed to sign Willian last summer I jumped up and down in the middle of the street like a kid before a happy meal.
Usually when players leave and important players to be exact, like any club the main priority is to replace them as soon as possible. With Chelsea it can go one way or the other either we find an adequate replacement right away or we do some like well. . Torres.
That brings me to my main point. Since the departure of King Didier we haven't exactly found his replacement as has been pointed out I don't know like a million times, this summer gives us the chance to finally find a goal scoring striker and someone that will prove useful, not that it isn't fun to watch Demba Ba fall over every time he scores. Many strikers have been linked with us and as someone who doesn't miss and Chelsea transfer rumour I am very excited with the names being mentioned.
I'm not going to bore you with all the names as I'm sure you already know but the main players linked with us now are Mario Mandzukic, Diego Costa. Yes these are very good players and yes they are a significant upgrade on our current trio but they wouldn't be by personal choice. The players I am fantasising more about are the likes of Edin Dzeko and Karim Benzema. I think Dzeko is actually a very realistic choice taking into consideration all factors, #1 Mourinho obviously likes him after his recent comments #2 He is a Mourinho type of player #3 Our current trio may all be leaving #4 He only has one year left on his contract with not being first choice City may decide to cash in on him.#4 he would be cheaper than most top class strikers available and is around the same age and #5 He scored 50 goals in one season for me on football manager with Chelsea.
As this is the first article I have ever written I would like your opinion on the article and which striker you would prefer, thanks very much!
