Interest in Guardiola persists!

Roman Abramovich is still keen to lure Guardila to Stamford Bridge. Roberto Di Matteo was recently appointed as permanent manager on a two year deal but his contract may contain a break clause which can be activated after a year allowing the club to make a move for Guardiola next summer. Not much of a progressive gesture at all.

Probable replacements for Bonsingwa

Roberto Di Matteo has compiled his list of candidates to replace Bosingwa. On top of that short list is Dortmund right-back, Piszczek, followed by Ajax full-back Gregory van der Wiel. And even Manchester United's Rafael da Silva.
Piszczek completed the league and cup final with Dortmund and Chelsea scouts were evidently impressed by his performances in a Poland shirt this summer.
Definitely, makes more sense to rebuild this team from the back four instead of buying big names upfront.

Personnel changes could be reckless spending

Abramovich has tried and failed to persuade Pep Guardiola to take charge at the start of the season. On the other hand, Brighton boss, Gus Poyet suggested that the Chelsea favourite, Di Matteo, should be handed over the permanent reins at the Bridge. He is after all a candidate from their legendary generation and it could prove to be the natural choice.
Abramovich also seems blatantly keen to make significantly expensive additions to the squad while currently working with technical director, Michael Emenalo. They have already sealed the £32 million signing of the Belgium play maker Eden Harzard.
Will this new front line combination of Torres, Hazard and a probable Hulk even pay off? Torres owes the club at least 20 plus goals for the season and could the other two fail to adjust and soon prove to be difficult to manage. Could this only be an expensive shortcut to affirm our global brand?
