Chelsea wastes no time, swoops in for Bosingwa



So much for a mourning period.

Less than a day after losing out on the English Premier League title, Chelsea took a step toward trying to build a title-winning squad by making a $32 million bid for Portuguese winger Jose Bosingwa. The 25-year-old fullback had been considered a top target for Manchester United, which was considered the front-runner for his services, but Chelsea swooped in and landed the prized defender.

Anybody else get the feeling this is just the first step in what is going to be a crazy transfer period for Chelsea? I’m calling it now. Roman Abramovich will approve the purchase of at least three more big-ticket players to help bolster the squad, especially if Chelsea loses to Manchester United in the Champions League final.

There is also the matter of rumors linking Chelsea stars Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard to summer departures from Stamford Bridge. If they leave then you can bet your bottom ruble that Abramovich will target the best possible replacements, regardless of cost. David Villa anybody? How about Ronaldinho?

Who do you see Chelsea going after with that bottomless bank account? What does Chelsea actually need? Share your thoughts below.
