Willian to Chelsea! surely not.

Posted on August 22, 2013 by Guest Writer

Sky Sport and all of the tabloids are now running stories that Chelsea are attempting to hijack the Tottenham deal for Willian even though he has passed his medical and his contract details have been thrashed out. The Metro, Star and Sky amongst others have all used the words “advanced talks” which perhaps leads us to believe their might just be a single mischievous source creating a headline.

For much of the summer  there has been concern from a few of Chelsea’s forward thinking midfielders, with last years favourite Mata being linked with a possible move elsewhere. Chelsea already have so many midfielders with many of them of similar style and ability to Willian, the list is endless. Quite apart from those players loaned out there is their acknowledged effort to purchase Rooney to add to the mix.If it is true that Chelsea are indeed considering and speaking with  Willian then surely a couple of their midfield stars must be about to depart, just how will Chelsea be able to accomodate all of their midfielders including Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Lampard, Ramirez, van Ginkel, Schurrie, De Bruyn, Moses and then add Willian to the mix? it makes little sense.

According to my calculation and based upon the fact that I believe that McCreachran has been loaned out ,Chelsea only have six players who qualify under the  requirement of needing eight British players in the squad( excluding under 21’s) rule, if it remains this way it would mean that their squad would be limited to only twenty-three players, I think their only qualifiers at the moment are Terry, Cahill, Lampard, Cole,Moses and Bertrand and so the numbers don’t add up.

Nothing is ever certain but even allowing for the possibilty of Mikel, Essien or Demba Ba leaving surely that would leave the squad totally unbalanced. All will likely be revealed within the next day or so but surely Willian to Chelsea is pure headline especially considering the wording of all the articles, check it out they all say “advanced talks”.
