Cesc Fabregas signing will make Chelsea's front six best in league

Published 4 Comments

It has really happened...Chelsea have completed a deal to bring Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Stamford Bridge. And it appears that Atletico Madrid hitman Diego Costa is next on Jose Mourinho's shopping list.

So, what does this mean for the Blues and the rest of the Premier League for that matter? 

Well, Chelsea's front six for the 2014/15 campaign could look like this: Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas, Willian, Oscar, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa? 

Who says Mourinho is a defensive manager? Well, that he may well be, but even the 'Special One' will find it difficult to play in that manner with the array of talent that he will have at his disposal. 

In Matic, Mourinho has a strong, tough tackling midfielder ready to put his body on the line for his team. He's a leader on the pitch and will run up and down doing the dirty work for the side. Fabregas, Willian, Oscar and Hazard, however, are all full of creativity and class, and will no doubt light up England's elite division next term. 

That quartet have enough about them to open up any defence in world football. The man that looks set to play in front of them isn't half bad either. 

Costa, who will of course star alongside Cesc Fabregas at this summer's World Cup, enjoyed a quite remarkable campaign for Spanish giants Atletico Madrid last season. He couldn't stop scoring as he helped the club secure the La Liga title, and he certainly represents an upgrade on Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Co.

Fabregas' role in the Blues side, however, will be key for Mourinho's Chelsea jigsaw. If the Spanish international can strike up a relationship alongside Matic, then the Blues could prove on another level to their rivals. 

The former Catalans star must be let off his leash at times under Mourinho, but will also have to play the way his new manager wants him to. Fabregas, having worked under Arsene Wenger and various Barcelona boss', will experience a new philosophy under Mourinho...and it's a philosophy that he will have to embrace. 

Mourinho is a master at implementing the perfect balance to a team, and if he can get it right next season, then the Premier League title could return to Stamford Bridge next May. 

What do you think Chelsea fans? How can Mourinho fit all these stars into his new look side? Have your say below!
