Chelsea Dream Move Dashed as Sky-High Wages Crush Short-Term Switch

Chelsea’s Dream Move Dashed: Sky-High Wages Crush Short-Term Switch Aspirations

Teamtalk have today confidently reported that Chelsea are out of the race to sign Karim Benzema, because of the striker’s wages.

They say he’s on £2m a week, and Chelsea are understandably not going to pay that. We’re not sure we quite believe his salary can be THAT much… although when Saudi Arabia is involved nothing is too certain.

The Blues are keen to find a new striker, and fans were dreaming that the unsettled former Real Madrid man could come in as an elite short term option to fire us up the table in the second half of this season.

We’re not surprised by this news at all – in fact, it lines up perfectly with what we predicted. Signing Benzema would go against all 3 pillars that our sporting directors have been given – sign young, sign long contracts, and sign low wages.

Whether Benzema’s wages were £2m a week or £200k, it wasn’t going to happen.
