As Chelsea continue to rebuild their squad to compete amongst the best, to become title challengers, and defend their European Champions crown, Manager Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed this afternoon that supporters can expect two more players to join the transition before the window closes.
Oscar, the Hazard brothers, and Marko Marin have already arrived to add an attacking zest to our football, which has already been noticed in pre-season matches. And more is to come from the Stamford Bridge side. This also spells some casualties to our squad, with Robbie confirming that there will be more players leaving, whether it be on loan, or permanent, there needs to be room made within the squad to accommodate these new signings.
Di Matteo was also full of praise for new Brazilian whizz kid, Oscar Dos Santos, describing him as an ‘excellent acquisition and great talent’
I am informed that De Bruyne, Lukaku and Thorgan Hazard will go out on loan this season, and as long as deals can be agreed, permanent moves away from the Bridge will be agreed for Malouda and Benayoun.
In terms of players coming in, it will be Hulk or Moses for the winger/striker option, and Cesar Azpilicueta as the right back. It will simply be a matter of time to get these deals confirmed.
