Alvarez’s comments may act as a warning shot to the Chelsea hierarchy.
Ajax star Edson Alvarez, who was a transfer target for Chelsea last summer, is relieved that his move to the Blues did not happen.
In last summer’s transfer window, the club made a bid to sign the 25-year-old. But, because it was late in the window, Ajax rejected the offer. The player expressed his disappointment at the decision later on.
Here’s what the Mexican international said when asked if the missed Chelsea move still bothers him (h/t Voetbal International, via Football.London):
“At first, because it felt like a mental challenge. Still, I turned the switch again afterwards, because Ajax is also a big club. I also believe that everything in life happens for a reason. If you see Chelsea’s season now, for example, also with all kinds of problems, then maybe it should have been that way. And this season, however difficult, has also been educational for me.”
Alvarez’s comments may act as a warning shot to the Chelsea hierarchy to get their act together before the start of the coming transfer window.
