Chelsea’s transfer market has cooled down after a wild summer, with the blues maintaining a calm January: no excessive spending in sight.
There was once a time when Chelsea was a major player in the transfer market, having spent hundreds of millions. However, after three transfer windows where there’s been substantial outgoing cash but little return in terms of results, Todd Boehly’s Blues have taken a calmer approach in January.
During this winter window, the team has made no investments to strengthen the squad and does not plan to do so in the closing hours. Even manager Pochettino commented on this in a press conference: “We are focused on tomorrow’s game, not on the market, which has been and will stay calm.” This is quite different from last January when they spent 220 million on Joao Felix, Mudryk, Madueke, Enzo Fernandez, and Hall.
