Chelsea are on their way to make their record breaking signing, as they are keen to secure a move for Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
The Blues are known for their big-money spendings, as well as wise transfer strategy, operated by club director Marina Granovskaia.
Last summer, despite the huge financial damage done by the coronavirus pandemic, Chelsea managed to spend big, bringing in six players and also broke a transfer record.
This summer, the west London side have made just one signing, bringing in goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli from Fulham for just €2.5m.
However, Chelsea still have an unfinished business in the transfer market, as they want to secure a striker signing, with Lukaku heavily linked.
Reports claim the transfer is very close and the Blues are ready to break yet another transfer record.
So ahead of Lukaku’s potential return to Stamford Bridge, let’s take a look at the record-breaking signings Chelsea have made.
Chilwell joined Chelsea last summer from Leicester City and was one of the six signings. The 24-year-old left-back became a key member of the squad under both Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel, and helped them reach to the FA Cup final, as well as win the Champions League.
The German striker didn’t have his best season at Chelsea, as many expected, having scored just 12 and assisted 15 goals, and as well as missing too many good chances. However, his contribution for every game was huge, which helped him stay in the starting lineup. This season, after winning the Champions League, Werner would be expected to do even more than last season and help the Blues win yet another silverware.
Jorginho undoubtedly had an incredible season this term, helping Chelsea win the Champions League and becoming Euro 2020 champions with Italy.
Since his move to west London from Napoli, back in 2018, the Italian became an essential player in the midfield and will still be as the club have no intentions to sell him.
