Can you name Chelsea’s 20 most expensive transfers in history?
Chelsea have spent a lot of money to establish themselves as one of Europe’s best teams ever since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003 – but can you name their 20 most expensive transfers?
Before Abramovich, Chelsea barely had two pennies to rub together. Indeed, their victory over Liverpool in May 2003, which ensured Champions League qualification, reportedly saved the club from bankruptcy.
But the west Londoners soon started spending money with abandon, attracting a host of talented footballers to Stamford Bridge.
And the silverware soon followed; no club has won as many major honours in the past 20 years than Chelsea, demonstrating their investment has paid dividends.
We’d like you to name the 20 most expensive transfers in Chelsea’s history, including the January 2023 window.
We’ve given you 15 minutes and have listed the fee paid and the year the deal was completed as clues. All of them are relatively recent signings as you’d expect so you really should be getting 100%.
Assuming you manage that, see if you can name the club’s top 25 goalscorers in Premier League history, their top 30 appearance makers in the competition or, if you really want a challenge, every player to appear in Jose Mourinho’s first season at Stamford Bridge.
