Chelsea secret behind successful transfer spree explained by super agent

Chelsea’s successful transfer activity goes down to the hierarchy backing manager Frank Lampard to the fullest. That is according to famous agent Kia Joorabchian, who is immensely impressed with the Blues’ spending spree, which has seen the likes of Thiago Silva, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Kai Havertz moving to Stamford Bridge.

Joorabchian claims he knows many coaches who wish they were supported the same way Lampard has been by club president Roman Abramovich.

However, the agent warned Chelsea that the pressure is on as the team will now have to perform to the highest possible level and deliver results.

Joorabchian told talkSPORT: “Chelsea have spent very well. They’ve backed Frank to the full – that’s been the key.

“I know a lot of managers who wish they had been backed in that way. I think the pressure is on Chelsea to perform.

“The market will still continue.

“But having said that I think Chelsea have bought what they’ve bought; but they’ve probably paid 20 or 30 per cent less than they would have done in a buoyant market.”

Chelsea were inactive in the last two transfer windows due to a transfer ban that was imposed on them by UEFA and ended up being halved.
