TBH, we're having trouble stumping up $10M.
Sterling to Chelsea makes no sense to me. They have wingers coming out of their ears, but are almost assuredly losing Rudiger, Azpi, and Christensen. Who's starting next to Silva? Is it finally time for MIAZGA?!?? It's obviously not. I actually really liked what I saw from Sarr in the limited times I saw him, but even I can admit he's the equivalent of a "toolsy player" and I have no idea if he's actually up to EPL-UCL starting XI standards. Chalobah is another CB I see on their squad. Am I missing anything??? Of course Chelsea will have some of the strongest players in the world at every other position--James, Alonso, Mount, Mendy, and Haavertz are beyond doubt, and then there's Kovacic, Werner, Puli, Kante (!), Ziyech (not for long most likely), CHO, and other very capable players. Moreover, I still think Tuchel is in the elite echelon of managers and he will get more out of this group regardless. Weird business nonetheless unless they ALSO still get Kounde, in which case I'll punch myself in the dick because he would be such a good pickup for the Blues and put them right back to last year's horribad...3rd place finish.
