The loud thundering screams in West London were overshadowed by the high volume jeers at the red of Manchester as United trumped Chelsea to the signing of Romelu Lukaku. Certainly, no one at Chelsea was expecting it and it has all left us shell-shocked. However, this only gives credence to the fact that Lukaku’s unfinished business with Chelsea played out in a spiteful way that makes it all but finished. If there was ever any sort of affinity he had with the Chelsea supporters, at the moment it all seems dead and gone.
In reality, Chelsea and Conte can actually offer themselves and the fans a glimmer of hope by bringing back one of our own into the fold. He is of one of football’s demoniac, enigmatic character and finest strikers – DIEGO COSTA. The pantomime villain is an enemy of himself and his exuberance has actually irritated Conte who decided to cut short the striker’s time at the club. Apparently, a replacement is all Conte wants in place of the Spanish striker which is proving to be a herculean task.
But the popular saying: “the devil you know is better than the angel you don’t know’ should be a compass to direct Chelsea. With exorbitant prices in excess of £70m being tagged on strikers of great quality, it will only be wise if Chelsea keep Costa at the club. He’s tried, tested and though not fully trusted, but can do a good job when he’s on fire.
A truce between Conte and Costa can set the ball rolling at Chelsea as this might just make sense that buying another expensive misfit that will only flatter to deceive.
Let’s keep our hopes alive. Cheers!
