In the current transfer market (prior to the coronavirus pandemic effect), signing top players in the mould of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner would come at a scary price.
Players like Werner and Ziyech who are high in demand command high transfer fees, but Chelsea after being unable to take advantage of two transfer windows, will now sign both Ziyech and Timo Werner.
The Blues had already sealed the signing of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax back in February for just a meager fee of £33m. Chelsea are now set to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner after triggering his release clause of £49m.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia hasn’t had a good reputation at Stamford Bridge over the years, but with these latest deals, she’s now beginning to win the hearts of Chelsea fans.
A Chelsea fan has gone to twitter to hail Marina for signing Werner and Ziyech for a combined fee not up to £100m.
Chelsea sold Eden Hazard to Real Madrid last summer for £88m, and the Blues are now getting two top players for just £82m.
