Premier League Champions Chelsea are expected to complete not less than three transfers worth £87 million before the transfer window slams shut in a couple of weeks. After being handed their ass over to them by Manchester City, Jose Mourinho is understood to be looking to reshape things in his side. The Blues just completed their first out of the three signings in form of Pedro Rodriguez, Chelsea capitalised on United’s sluggish approach to the deal and hijacked the Spanish winger for a fee of £21.1 million.
The 28 year old has reportedly signed a four year deal with the defending champions. In the aftermath of signing Pedro, Chelsea have turned their efforts into finally finishing off the John Stones transfer saga once and for all. Chelsea is believed to be preparing a bid worth £40 million for the Everton defender after seeing their first three bids rejected by the Toffees.
After substituting John Terry at half-time against Manchester City which might indicate the need for a central defender, Chelsea are expected to increase the urgency to wrap up the deal of John Stones. The 21 year old has been tagged as a long term replacement for John Terry but Everton have been playing hardball over the sale of John Stones.
However a £40 million bid should be enough to see Everton sell their highly prized asset. Lastly, Chelsea’s final transfer business out of the three expected transfers lined up involves the exit of Juan Cuadrado from the club. The Colombian has struggled to fit at Chelsea and seem largely absent when introduced as a sub against Manchester City. The 27 year old has been linked with a move back to Serie A, with Juventus favourites to land him. Chelsea would have no problem letting the Colombian leave so far the right fee is tendered.
