Chelsea will regret not completing this important January transfer

SportWitness yesterday had some interesting quotes from Gianfranco Zola about the January transfer window.

Chelsea had chased both Nico Barella of Cagliari and Leandro Paredes of Zenit St Petersburg, according to the rumours at the time. When Paredes moved to PSG, it seemed certain that Barella would be coming to Stamford Bridge, especially when Cesc Fabregas’ move to Monaco was given the green light.
