Chelsea players’ market values decimated by last season’s collapse
For one of the most spend-happy clubs in the Premier League, the next few years is all about rebuilding. After winning the Premier League title two seasons ago, the buzzphrase when talking about Chelsea seemed to be ‘dynasty building’. The belief was that Jose Mourinho would be able to build a team to win the league again and dominate English football, filling the power vacuum left by Manchester United’s decline, Manchester City’s inconsistency and Arsenal’s stagnation.
Then last season happened.
But it is also worth remembering that the majority of this Chelsea squad is made up of players who were champions just two seasons ago, and in the case of N’Golo Kante, a player who is a current champion.
So we thought we’d take a little look through football transfer bible, TransferMarkt.com, to see actual market the value of Chelsea’s squad – surely last season’s blip was just a blip and the former champions are still amongst football’s best?
