Chelsea have been the most active team in the transfer market this summer, not only in the Premier League but in Europe as a whole.

The Blues have made a massive outlay of around £230m, with Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz all joining in one transfer swoop.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has worked hard to ensure Lampard’s transfer targets are met, with Edouard Mendy also expected to join soon.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has blasted his club for not being able to do any business so far. United have chased Jadon Sancho all summer to no avail, much to the frustration of Rio.

“Frank has made signing players like it’s the norm, like it’s easy – water off a duck’s back,” Ferdinand told the Five YouTube Channel.

“The difference in the way Chelsea have done their business compared to say my team Man United… there is no noise there’s nothing going on, all you’re seeing is bang – deal. Little bit of talk, bang-deal.

“That is what’s frustrating for me and all the Man United fans.”

“Sancho was talked about months ago,” said Ferdinand.

“Still not done, it’s so frustrating, I’m not saying deals are easy to be done but Chelsea are showing deals can be done if you put the money down and it’s all done in the right way.”
