Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has said he understands Chelsea will fail to attract top class talents after the terrible defense of their Premier League title and fears of missing out in the Champions League next season.
Besides, according to the reports, there are fears of a “mass walkout” at Stamford Bridge with top players such as Diego Costa and Eden Hazard being linked with move to other elite clubs.
Recent reports have claimed that Real Madrid are preparing at least £80 million for Eden Hazard. Thierry Henry believes Chelsea will fail to attract world-class players this month because of the clubs uncertain future.
Besides, the West London club are on the lookout for manager for next season, with interim boss Guus Hiddink set to leave in the summer.
Writing in his column for the Sun a few days ago, the former Gunner said: “Clearly, the damage the team has suffered in recent months runs far deeper than anyone realised. And now that they don’t have the manager or the doctor to blame, it’s clearly the players who are responsible for this mess.”
“No top player is going to sign for Chelsea during the January window because they don’t know who the manager will be next season or if they will be playing in the Champions League.”
“It looks as though they could be signing Alexandre Pato from Corinthians. But if I had the chance to join Chelsea this month, I would sit tight until the summer and wait for some of those questions to be answered.”
