Friday Facts: Summer transfers


With the summer transfer window scheduled to start in July, I thought it would be a good moment to share my five favourite facts about Chelsea transfers in the past!

I can't wait to see what new players will be joining the Chelsea squad for next season, but in the meantime, here are some interesting facts about previous transfer windows.

1. Chelsea first broke the million pound record when they signed Dennis Wise in 1990 from Wimbledon. The dynamic midfielder quickly became a fan favourite, and won the Chelsea Player of the Season award twice!

2. Chelsea's most expensive transfer signing was Fernando Torres, who is remembered by Chelsea fans for scoring an equaliser against Barcelona in the 2011/12 Champions League semi-final. The Blues went on to beat Bayern in the final.

3. David Luiz appears in the top 10 lists for transfer fees paid and transfer fees received by Chelsea. The brilliant Brazilian was sold to PSG in 2014 and bought back last summer to help the Blues win the Premier League.

4. Chelsea broke the English transfer record at the time in 2006, when they bought Andriy Shevchenko from AC Milan.

5. One of Chelsea's first ever signings was William "Fatty" Foulke. The Blues bought the burly goalkeeper from Sheffield United in 1905 for £50 and made him club captain!
