Chelsea’s transfer plans have reportedly been stunted by the uncertainty surrounding the managerial situation at Stamford Bridge.
It could not have been clearer throughout the entire 2017/18 campaign that Chelsea’s squad was too weak to compete.
Antonio Conte will be held responsible for our failures in the Premier League, but there can be no denying that we were considerably weaker than our rivals.
That was largely down to our shortfalls in the transfer market the preceding summer. Sub-standard players were recruited, infecting the squad with mediocrity.
The mistakes of last summer need to be rectified, but it doesn’t look as though that’s plausible until Maurizio Sarri is appointed as manager.
According to the Times, Chelsea’s pursuits of both OGC Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski have hit brick-walls over managerial uncertainty.
Both players appear reluctant to entertain the idea of signing for a club who do not know who their manager will be next season – and understandably so.
Thankfully, it looks as though Sarri’s proposed move to Stamford Bridge is on the verge of completion. Let’s hope so.
