Chelsea FC Most expensive signings ever as of 2019

Chelsea will have to spend big this summer as they could lose their star player Hazard to Real Madrid and will need to replace him.  Their new most expensive signing Kepa has settled into the side well and has a bright future ahead of him.

Their January loan signing of Higuain remains a dark horse. They also have bought Christian Pulisic who will join them in the summer for £58m making him the joint second most expensive signing for the Blues. Pulisic is not in the list yet because he has not joined the club yet and there are clauses in the deal which, however unlikely, could still see the transfer collapse.

Gone are the days though of Chelsea spending big so it’s likely that not many signings happen next season unless Hazard leaves.

Chelsea most expensive signings ever – Kepa Arrazibalaga

Chelsea were hit hard in the summer when their star goalkeeper and World Cup’s golden glove winner Thibaut Courtois went to war with the club to leave for Real Madrid. However, Chelsea were able to find a replacement, albeit for a club record fee.

Young Kepa is in his first season here at Chelsea and has done extremely well so far. His reflexes and positioning has improved every game and he is much better with his feet than Courtois ever was. Looks like Chelsea traded up!

Chelsea most expensive signings ever – Alvaro Morata

Chelsea FC Most expensive signings 2018 Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata came as Chelsea’s most expensive transfer . After scoring only 24 goals in 72 games, he was loaned out to Atletico Madrid last month.

Alvaro Morata was born in Madrid and signed for Real Madrid in 2008 from Getafe CF. Morata had played for Atletico Madrid and Getafe as a youth player. After performing well for the Real Madrid C team, Morata was promoted to the B team.

Morata moved to Juventus in 2014 and scored 15 goals in 63 appearances. Not a great return for a striker.

Then, he moved back to Real Madrid after they opted to exercise his buy-back clause.  Morata then had a great season with them. Morata scored 15 goals in 26 appearances.

Chelsea most expensive signings ever – Fernando Torres

Fernando Torres is the fourth most expensive Chelsea signing ever. Chelsea signed the Spaniard from Liverpool in 2011 for £50 million. Most fans and pundits, however, consider Torres to have been a huge flop. But although he didn’t score many goals for Chelsea , he did score a few important ones in the Champions League. Including that gal against Barcelona.
