Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes is convinced Chelsea have done the best business in the winter transfer window.
The winter transfer window didn’t have enough activity in terms of players switching clubs but, Chelsea managed to do some last minute business as they moved André Schürrle to German side VfL Wolfsburg, secured the signing of World Cup star Juan Cuadrado, for £23.3m pounds from Fiorentina [with Mohammed Sallah moving to the Serie A club on loan as part of the deal for the Colombian winger].
And, Scholes gave his thought on Mourinho's transfer business in the most recent window.
“There were not many surprises this time around and as usual it looks like Chelsea have done the best business,” Scholes wrote in his Independent column.
“They made a profit of around £7m on their trading, having sold André Schürrle and Ryan Bertrand and loaned out Mohamed Salah for a fee.
“They seem to be clinical about it these days. You knew that if it was Juan Cuadrado they wanted, they would get him.”
“Looking at his stats, I’m not sure that over the course of his career he is an outstanding goalscorer or maker of assists,” the Manchester United legend added.
“A bit like Willian, he is one of those players who does not have the big numbers but he still manages to impress you with what he does.
“What is clear at Chelsea, however, is that if you do not perform you do not last long in the squad.”
