Chelsea fans have not been happy with some of the transfer decisions that the club has taken during the past couple of seasons and now it looks as if one more faulty transfer has been added to the last.
Two faulty transfers to be more precise.
The first one being, the decision to release to Ruben Loftus-Cheek and sending him out on loan to Crystal Palace. And the second one being the acquisition of Tiemoue Bakayoko to the squad.
Chelsea bought Bakayoko from Monaco for a whopping £39.7 million during the summer but the Frenchman has failed to impress up until now. And the game against Liverpool at Anfield was easily one of his worst performances and Rio Ferdinand quite rightly had a go at him for making the defenders suffer due to his lack of commitment on the pitch.
Loftus-Cheek, on the other hand, was in fine form for Palace this weekend and scored a gem of a goal in the club’s 2-1 victory over Stoke City on Saturday.
And the Blues fans are utterly confused as to how one of their finest young players is performing so well for another Premier League club while they are stuck with Bakayoko.
Here are some reactions from Twitter:
Still early but Bakayoko has been nothing but a flop. No technical ability, commits foul after foul & his positioning is awful. Loftus-Cheek is miles better imo.

Bakayoko for worst singing of the year, should swap places with Loftus-Cheek. #CFC

Could Chelsea have saved themselves 60 odd million on Ruediger and Bakayoko by trusting Christiansen & Loftus-Cheek earlier? I think so.

If Bakayoko came through Chelsea's academy he would have been loaned out and then sold. Loftus-Cheek is better. #LIVCHE
