Chelsea star sends message to potential summer signings
Gary Cahill tells any players interested in signing for Chelsea this summer that there is not better place for them
Gary Cahill has told any big-name players interested in joining Chelsea this summer that there is no better club to play for.
The Blues have been in superb form this season following Antonio Conte’s appointment as the club’s new manager last summer.
The Italian boss led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season at the club as he masterminded a brilliant turnaround following the Blues’ disastrous campaign last term.
Chelsea ended the season on a disappointing note when they were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.
However, the Blues will be expected to significantly bolster their squad in the summer transfer window as Conte prepares his side for a return to the Champions League next season.
And defender Cahill feels that any players thinking about joining Chelsea should definitely consider a move to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Cahill told the Evening Standard: “Since I have been here I have won six medals in five years and I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want to join Chelsea.
“I have been involved in semi-finals and finals of cup competitions and won League titles – there is no reason I can think of why someone wouldn’t want to be here.
“We breathe that winning mentality from top to bottom. Just look at the youth system. The Under-18s won the FA Youth Cup for a fourth straight year.
“They breed win, win, win here. It’s a great habit to get into. Ultimately I look at my Chelsea career since I stepped though the door and it’s been a total success.
“I look at the size of the club, the fanbase the calibre of players that come in, it’s got everything going for it.
“But when you win competitions, lift the League trophy like we did this season, it backs up everything this club is about. It proves we are the best team and obviously that will attract players.”
Chelsea finished 10th and without a trophy last season.
