5 ‘terrible’ contracts that Chelsea wish they never had a recruit

President Todd Boehly poured £600 million into the transfer market, but not every name he brought in was effective.

Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling becomes the first signing of Chelsea’s new era. At that time, former coach Thomas Tuchel considered Sterling the club’s number-one transfer target.

The former Man City player has struggled to make an impact under four different managers this season. At times, Graham Potter used Sterling in an unfamiliar position: full-back. Before arriving at Stamford Bridge, the England international scored an average of 15.6 goals per season in the Premier League. However, when wearing “The Blues”, Sterling only contributed 6 goals.

Marc Cucurella

Experiencing an impressive season in the Brighton shirt, Cucurella was closely pursued by the top Chelsea. Boehly’s side b/e/a/t Man City to sign the Spaniard. But with the performance of this season, it seems that the price of 62 million pounds Chelsea spent on Cucurella is too expensive.

No coach who has been in power at Chelsea knows how to “unlock” Cucurella. Compared to last year’s Premier League – the season the former Brighton player ranked 3rd among the best defenders in the Premier League, his cross, dribbling, and passing stats opened the door to 32 Chelsea chances in 90 minutes. are all greatly reduced?

Kalidou Koulibaly

Chelsea pursued Koulibaly for several seasons and successfully signed the Senegalese player last summer. The former Napoli player had problems adapting to the English football environment – which is faster and harsher than Serie A.

The £ 33 million midfielder left a series of unstable performances and made mistakes. Before the new coach, Pochettino prioritizes the use of young players,  Koulibaly is unlikely to have a place in the “Blues” squad next season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Chelsea spent £ 12 million to bring the former Arsenal star back to the Premier League. However, the fantasies of a “k/i/l/l/e/r” scoring over 20 goals quickly faded away.

The Gabon striker r/e/v/e/a/l/e/d the reason he came to Chelsea was because of Thomas Tuchel’s style impression. However, just a week after Aubameyang arrived at “Stamford Bridge”, the German military leader was fired by the club’s superiors. Since that time, Aubameyang has played superficially and has not produced any explosive moments like the way he has shown in Arsenal colors.

Mykhailo Mudryk

When news of Chelsea’s win over Arsenal in Mudryk’s signature, the “True Blues” celebrated. That makes sense if you look at Mudryk’s show in the Champions League.

However, the expectation of the best winger in the Premier League did not come true. The Ukrainian was unable to score and only provided 2 assists in 16 appearances in all competitions. Chelsea clearly needs more than a £88.5m signing.
