Chelsea’s superb defensive form is making it hard to seriously think about signing new players at the back this summer, but that mindset is often a mistake.
When a club stops pushing forward, they quickly go backward. Standing still is not something that really exists in football.
That’s why, when a major player is going to come on the market, it’s worth considering no matter how well you’re doing at that exact moment.
Football.London today cite Chelsea’s long-standing interest in Gigi Donnarumma, AC Milan goalkeeper, whose contract expires this summer.
The Rossoneri have just ten games left to play this season, and they could be the keeper’s last at his boyhood club. Chelsea may feel comfortable with Edu Mendy in goal, but can they really believe they wouldn’t be better with Gigi between the sticks?
This might just be a unique opportunity to get a world class stopper, and we’ve got to think long and hard before letting it slip away.
