Young Players See The Real Chelsea
After the initial throng of young and experienced players alike queing up to join Chelsea as the Blues entered the Abramovich era, it now appears that the penny has finally dropped with the young players of the world.
After Abou Diaby & Theo Walcott chose Arsenal over Chelsea for football reasons rather than the cash, highly rated midfield starlet, Yohann Gouffran has joined in with snubbing the boys from the Bridge claiming there is no place for a promising young player amidst the ranks of the highly paid 'superstars'.
Speaking reagrding his decision to stay with Caen rather than join one of the host of big clubs who came in for him, Gouffran revealed that Chelsea made a firm offer for him.
'In France, Auxerre, St Etienne and Monaco wanted to sign me,Chelsea also came with a concrete offer.'
'But I wasn't interested. Just look at their policy - they buy so many stars, there is no place for me.'
The French under 21 international showed that he has their number and knows exactly why Chelsea will struggle from now on signing young players.
'They would have loaned me for a year, and I don't want that.'
He also had a swipe about Roman Abramovich's long term intentions for the club, suggesting what we are all thinking, that the Russian Billionaire is just playing fantasy football.
'If I leave, it is to invest myself in a real project. I need implication.'
The Stamford Bridge faithful shouldn't be too downhearted, while there is money to be made from football, you'll always have some little Chav like Ashley Cole moving to the highest bidder, but in my opinion, they are welcome to them!
