There are 30 days left in the Summer 2014 transfer window, and while Jose Mourinho and Chelsea keep repeating that we are done and we are outside the market and nothing more will happen, we keep buying and selling and loaning at will. Though we're mostly concerned about that first thing right now, the buying.
