Roman Abramovich predicts dream Chelsea XI to peak in 2024 after wave of £ 146million transfers – Daniel Childs
It seems naive to look too far into Chelsea history given how unpredictable the West London club are under Roman Abramovich.
Originally, the title of this coin was to include Thomas Tuchel’s name, looking to 2024 and plotting potential programming the German sage would unleash to secure the Premier League and European dominance.
While it’s much safer to assume that Abramovich’s 18-month-old status quo remains intact and whoever sits in the dugout two years from now, Chelsea will still remain one of Europe’s most impressive teams with some of the continent’s most admired talent.
As 2021 has proven, the lots may change at Chelsea, but there’s no denying that Thomas Tuchel’s current squad includes some incredible talent.
With a multitude of sharp young talents, others approaching their seasoned and experienced veterans by maximizing their talent.
Two years from now, Chelsea supporters should expect the squad to be very different, especially given the ages of some of the current first-team members and current contracts.
Club captain Cesar Azpilicueta is nearing the end of his career at Stamford Bridge, which will be a blow given his incredible consistency since signing in 2012.
European defensive titan Thiago Silva approaching his forties still playing at an elite level proves his incredible wit, but should be predicted that he will leave by at least 2023.
N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are also entering their 30s and have ongoing contracts with Chelsea who are already scouring the market for potential replacements.
The contract battle with defensive duo Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger has yet to be resolved with fans unsure of the future of the two beyond this season.
What I have tried to project into this roster are some of the major stars of the current squad who are unlikely to budge anytime soon, exciting youngsters either in the first squad now or impressive on loan to get back into the squad. years to come.
I also tried to predict some major transfers, two in fact that were strongly linked over the past summer and which will likely resume in 2022.
Although Tuchel is currently enjoying great success with the 3-4-2-1, it is only a matter of time before Chelsea return to a four-man defense, mainly due to the unbalanced number of attackers currently present. .
Even though Edouard Mendy would be 31 in two years, we all know the lifespan of a top goalie is drastically different from that of outfielders.
Mendy has emerged as one of Europe’s top goalkeepers over the course of 18 months in West London and unless he massively loses his form expect him to hold onto the top spot for a while. time.
Excellent wingers for Tuchel, but Reece James and Ben Chilwell have already shown their equal quality in a four-way defense for Chelsea.
Their energy, skill on the ball and productivity in the final third, Chelsea have full backs perfectly suited to a game that demands more wide defenders.
The center-back position is where we see our first signing in Seville’s Jules Kounde. Chelsea moved closer in 2021 and I wouldn’t be surprised if the move happens in 2022 as the French defender becomes one of the best in his role.
Trevoh Chalobah extended his contract until 2026 in October and the academy star appears capable of joining Reece James in a 50% Cobham backline.
The central midfielder is however completely dominated by Cobham.
Declan Rice at Chelsea feels a matter of when and not West Ham and feels the obvious successor to Kante and Jorginho.
His power, speed and aggressiveness are a must, but the elegant quality of the ball has made him one of the most impactful central midfielders in the Premier League.
Rice’s best friend Mason Mount has become indispensable to his club since 2019 and the recent The Ballon d’Or nomination will only propel the midfielder to greater heights.
Chelsea would be foolish to pass a talent like Conor Gallagher due to his influence for Crystal Palace on loan.
His late runs into the box bring visions of Frank Lampard and with Mount, pressing in the attacking midfield would be insane.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has proven to be a creative certainty in his preferred left-wing post. Although he has fierce competition, his talent, technique, and chemistry with others should keep him in high regard.

Chelsea broke their transfer record for Romelu Lukaku, so he should be a mainstay of the Blues attack for several years. The refined and mature striker at the top of the attack to lead this talented team.
It’s hard (and horrible) to think of a future where Kai Havertz doesn’t realize his high potential in European football.
The Champions League winning goal was the perfect springboard for the German sensation to become one of the best in the world. Pray that this dream will come true given the club’s major investment in him.
