Jose Mourinho revamped Chelsea’s attack last season, bringing back Didier Drogba, singing Loic Remy from Queens Park Rangers on deadline day, and signing star striker, Diego Costa for £32million. Diego Costa was the most impressive, but Loic Remy battled with Drogba for his playing time scraps. He didn’t make much of an impact on Chelsea’s season, but when he was on the pitch he was scoring goals. But his lack of playing time could be his beginning to his end at Stamford Bridge, and the Express are reporting that Crystal Palace are eyeing a move for the French international.
The Express reports that French newspaper, L’Equipe as claiming that Alan Pardew is keen to bring the striker to Selhurst Park after having previously worked with him at Newcastle United. L’Equipe also states that Pardew wants to bring another one of his former Newcastle players to Crystal Palace, that being Yohan Cabaye. But after playing at PSG, and in the Champions League, it is unlikely that he will be moving to one of the biggest clubs in thw world to one of the Premier League’s smallest clubs. Same goes for Loic Remy, and Crystal Palace will have to offer a large sum of money to both players to even have a shot at convincing them to join him at Crystal Palace.
Loic Remy is by no means a world-class player, and Chelsea would not hurt too much from his sale. He could be easily replaced by a multitude of different strikers, most notably Falcao. Falcao is set to make his move to Chelsea official very soon, and it is rumored that it is a deal identical to his at Manchester United, but with half his wages. That is the perfect scenario. It provides a stop-gap while Chelsea youngsters, Izzy Brown, Dom Solanke, and Patrick Bamford mature grow their game to become good enough to play every day at Chelsea.
But if Alan Pardew can really go out and sign Cabaye and Remy, then we better watch out because that is another legitimate team with a legitimate manger, competing for a spot in Europe.
It will be very cruel of Remy is made to leave Chelsea. If he had enough playing time, he would have been in the category of Costa and Hazard. If you compare minutes per goal ratio, he would be ranked no.1, above Costa and Hazard. Drogba got more playing time than him. We need potent strikers.
Remy must not leave Chelsea. Drogba’s place should be replaced by another striker who in my opinion should be third in the perking order. His contributipns in games is superb and he always has eyes for goal. That dude will give a team that plays him regurlarly 25+ Goals a season.
