Gary Neville has his say on Roman Abramovich’s splurge of money in the summer transfer window.
Chelsea has been probably the most active team in the summer transfer window and spent over £200m in signing young football talents such as Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz.
Roman Abramovich has put his trust and money in Frank Lampard to turn Chelsea into title challengers once more.
Pundit Gary Neville believes that Abramovich has invested in the younger players for the club’s future and also wanted to see some attacking flair football at Stamford Bridge.
“You always felt there was a feeling from Roman Abramovich, even though we’ve never heard him speak about it, that he wanted football with flair,” he said on Sky Sports.

“What he seems to have done now is brought into a longer process. He had fantastic academy players, academy teams for years. He’s now giving Frank Lampard the responsibility to use them.
“He’s obviously now investing in young players. I think what he would want to see is a progression towards that top two.
“What I would say about Chelsea this season is there’s an element of we don’t know quite what they’re going to do.
