Very few of Todd Boehly’s big-money signings in his time as Chelsea chairman could be described as a success.
Raheem Sterling has failed to live up to his previous performances with Liverpool and Manchester City, managing justfour goalsand two assists in the Premier League, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been something of a disaster, with one top-flight goal to his name in Chelsea colours.
The likes of Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke have struggled for game time since their arrivals in January, with the club-record addition of Enzo Fernandez one of few players to enjoy a consistent run of games in the first team so far this campaign.
While there was a bright start to life at Stamford Bridge for the World Cup winner under Graham Potter, his form under Frank Lampard has been dreadful thus far, and the English manager must consider dropping him for the final four games.
Why did Chelsea sign Fernandez?
It is easy to understand why Boehly was willing to pay the release clause in Fernandez’s contract at Benfica, considering the surrounding hype following his inspired performances for club and country in the first half of the campaign.
The 22-year-oldnotchedone goal and five assists in 17 league appearances for Benfica before establishing himself as a regular in Lionel Scaloni’s side, as Argentina won the title in Qatar.
