Chelsea football club has without a doubt been one of the most successful teams in the history of the club football. The team has been a home to some of the biggest names in world football in the past. Be it registering incredible records to lifting titles against the odds, the team has always been an example to several other clubs in the past.
Regardless of their brilliance in the past decade, the team hasn’t been able to achieve impressive results lately in any competition that they’ve participated in. Several reasons have collectively lead to the downfall of the team as a whole. One of the major aspects which has lead to the team’s recent failures is none other than it’s poor decisions during the latest transfer window.
Dusan Vlahovic of Juventus was nearing an exit from the club and was on verge of signing for the blues prior to the starting of this season. However Chelsea manager – Pochettino didn’t consider the move to be a worthy one as he wasn’t convinced of the striker’s abilities on the pitch. Fast forward to matchday five of the Premier League 2023/24 season, Chelsea is placed 14th in the table with 5 points to their name in 5 games so far. The team has scored just 5 goals in the league so far and the attack has been full of flaws regularly.
23 year old Dusan Vlahovic on the other hand has been absolutely brilliant for Juventus so far in this season. The Serbian striker has looked in fine form with four goals and one assist in four matches so far. Thanks to his brilliance, Juventus are still unbeaten in the league and are placed 2nd in the table with 10 points in 4 matches so far. Thus it’s pretty much correct to say that Chelsea missed out on a major opportunity to lay their hands over one of Europe’s most decisive strikers who could have been a solution to their problems currently.
