While Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and to a slighter less degree Arsenal scramble to get all their summer transfer business done Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho looks the epitome of a relaxed manager, knowing that his team only needed a minor adjustment from last year’s Championship winning team to be all set for the season ahead.
Chelsea got the majority of their business done early signing Radamel Falcao from Monaco on-loan and Asmir Begovic to replace Petr Cech, who against Mourinho’s advice was allowed to join Arsenal.
Chelsea may still need a couple of more players before the transfer window ends, but the nucleolus of the squad remains intact, and is enjoying their pre-season tour of North America.
The biggest signing Chelsea may have done this summer is manage to keep hold of Nigerian international John Obi Mikel, who whenever he is brought into a game you know the Portuguese manager is happy with the result and is just playing out the time until the final whistle.
With the new season just a few weeks away Chelsea look like champions already which is why we warn their rivals that you should be afraid, very afraid!
