Chelsea FC has had an all-around good season, winning the Premier League title with ease, and also winning the League Cup. But the only disappointing part would be the performance in the Champions League, falling short to Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16. If Chelsea wants to win the Champions League next season, they will have to sign a few players in the summer transfer window. The three players that would help them win the Champions League are…
- Paul Pogba
Now with an official transfer request turned in, it is now accepted that Paul Pogba will not be playing for Juventus next season. He has one of the brightest futures in football, and has been linked to virtually every big club. He does everything, tracks back on defense, scores goals and creates chances. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich would have to part ways with £56million for the Frenchman’s signature, but it would be worth every pound. Plus it would keep Pogba from signing for Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, and Manchester City.
- Charlie Austin
Chelsea has been linked to multiple strikers for a good reason; they really, really, really need one. Diego Costa will still be the number one striker next season, but Didier Drogba is not a first team footballer anymore, and Loïc Remy has had injury problems all season. Dom Solanke and Patrick Bamford are not ready to play for Chelsea, and Mourinho will have to look to purchase a stop-gap while they develop their game. Charlie Austin has Premier League, is an English international, and is one of the most prolific strikers in Europe. He will only cost about £10million and could be one of the best backup strikers in the world.
- Morgan Schneiderlin
Chelsea will also have to look to sign another holding midfielder, to backup Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas. Matic is considered to be one of the most important players in Mourinho’s squad, and he does not have a suitable replacement behind him. Ramires and John Obi Mikel cannot provide the same physical presence that Matic does. Morgan Schneiderlin has been rated as one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League this season, along with Matic and Coquelin. He would provide depth and an extra option for Mourinho going forward.
