Chelsea Secured Bargain Buy of the January Window

Salah ChelseaAlthough Chelsea lost their talisman Juan Mata in the winter transfer window, Mourinho bought a quality replacement that too for cheap.
Mata was warming the bench under the management of Jose Mourinho despite the fact that he was Chelsea’s best player for the past two seasons.
The Portuguese manager just hated the fact that Mata could not contribute in defense while his system has always demanded that in every club he has managed.
In the end, Chelsea splashed a reported sum of 11 million pounds to hire the services of Egyptian star Mohamed Salah from Basel.
Salah is the man who perhaps single-handedly defeated Chelsea by scoring solo goals in both home and away games in the Champions League and was man of the match on both occasions.
Not only that, Salah was attacking from both flanks and was moving central as well. His versatility is one of the main strengths that make him that special.
Still, perhaps the thing that impressed Mourinho the most is that despite that much work rate in the attacking third, Salah was still tracking back to help in defending and that is one priceless quality significantly required in the premier league.
Although Chelsea have many top quality attacking midfielders at their disposal still Salah, once given the chance will prove that he is worth way more than what the Londoners paid to sign him.

    We just hope selah’s addition to the Chelsea squad will add that extra bite that CHelsea have lacked for the last Two seasons. Having had watched selah and what he did to chelsea one has to only wait in anticipation for his contribution to a not so complete team. Whilst i would have loved chelsea to buy a striker with the pedigree of diego costa or the brute strengh and guile of hulk i think that would be asking too much of mou. Having said that we should give chelsea a pat on the back for acquiring the services of matic, something much needed in the middle of the pack and the pogba of defence kurt zouma. I think all in all we had a successful shopping spree this transfer window. Mancity have flexed their financial muscles over the last three seasons and look where they are today. They are the team to beat, what would be the purpose of having muscles that you do nt use…….

    it is a good thing mourinho was able to buy a replacement for mata but i pray dat he does regret selling mata. some times d styles of play mou adopt is so boring no creativity but power play. football have gone beyond that stage, william nd ramires wil run d whole d whole field attacking at d end wil fail to deliver am not saying they re bad bt at least i expect some cretivity from them. thank God for the likes of hazard nd oscar who re making foot ball interesting for us. what is d use of muscle when u cannot use them. mou think wel
