Chelsea football club was very much active in the last summer transfer with the club letting some of their players leave on loan or permanently.

The Blues faced almost all the ups and downs that are related to the transfer window, the European champions saw PSG won them in the race to sign Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan while Sevilla refuse to sell Jules Kounde due to the difference in valuation of the defender.

However, The west Londoner had to pay big for the signing of Romelu Lukaku while taking Saul Niguez on loan from Atletico Madrid

Going forward, the departure of Willy Caballero also means another goalkeeper is needed and that was why Marcus Bettinelli was brought in as a free agent.

Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel's treatment of Saul Niguez might make it hard for Chelsea to sign new players.

The Spanish international was handed his debut appearance against Aston Villa but it was a debut he would wish to forget in a hurry as he made bad decisions that could have cost the club. The player was substituted at halftime and Chelsea went on to win the match by 3-0.

Thomas Tuchel has refused to give Saul another chance to redeem himself, the player's next involvement was against the same opposition in the Carabao Cup and he only last 76 minutes in that match.

The treatment of Saul is not right and it could help players to decide against joining Chelsea. The player made mistakes but it was not enough to ax him out of the squad.

Chelsea knows the player to be a very good option in midfield and that was why he was signed, he should be more involved with the team, he deserves playing time and not this bad treatment.

Recall that Thiago Silva had a similar encounter on his debut, his mistake even led to a goal but Frank Lampard stood behind him in that tough time.

If the defender was treated badly, he won't have been an integral part of the team that won the champions league, and Chelsea's defense won't have been this solid.

Thiago Silva made the other defenders around him better, Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen benefitted a lot from the defender's vast experience.

Conclusively, Thomas Tuchel should start giving Saul Niguez a chance to rewrite his wrongs or potential players might be scared to join Chelsea for the fear of being treated the same way.
