I've been a close observer of the summer transfer market, and i'm noticing a phenomenum. This season Chelsea is having it terribly hard to sign a world class player. They dont have any special need in any position EXCEPT atack. Defense is perfect, and chelsea even bought an extra left back. Midfield is perfectly good unless big injuries happen, so maybe another winger will come. Also of course Mourinho wouldnt mind having Gerrard too since he's world class, charismatic, and english, a player that gives the group something extra. Atack - the big problem. Last season Drogba wasnt bad, but not up to the 35 million euros. This season chelsea is trying all to get the player they badly need. The thing is, a regular good atacker wouldnt bring anything new. To add value to the team it has to be a world class player. Real didnt have a problem getting world class players every season. They convinced Figo to switch sides for 60 million euros!! They bought Zidane in his prime for 75 million euros from Juventus!! They bought Ronaldo for another 60 million from Inter!! Barcelona also bought Ronaldinho, Milan bought Shevshenko,... But Chelsea tried Adriano, Shevshenko, Trezeguet, Owen, Gillardino, ... And even tought offers of 70 and 100 million euros, the clubs wont sell. Why? They did sell to other clubs. Why dont they sell to chelsea? Are they afraid that this team can become unbeatable, and all the major clubs are intransigent to sell their major players even for astronomic fortunes? Are they "abusing" of chelsea's financial power demonstrated these 2 seasons, and now they will only expect outrageous offers, way off the player value or else be intransigent? Which world class forward is there left for chelsea to buy?
