Chelsea Focus Are On Young Talents
The blues under Marina Granovskia have focused their attention on young talents who still have many years to play active football. Since she became Chelsea's sports director, Chelsea have reduced the number of players that are over 30 in the squad.
The present Chelsea squad don't have more than 4 players that are above 30 and they are Thiago Silva, Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.
Willian Is Not A Priority Signing for Chelsea
Chelsea have a lot of players that are playing the same position with the Brazilian International. Signing Willian means there will be excess player in the attacking position and that will make some players not to have enough playing time.
With the likes of Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Havartz, Mason Mount and Romelu Lukaku, the blues will not be bothered by Didier Drogba's wish.
Judging by his current form, it will be difficult for Willian to make Chelsea's first eleven this season. With the likes of Pulisic, Timo Werner Hakim Ziyech and other attackers, the Brazilian will find it difficult to make Thomas Tuchel's team.
