The countdown is on as Chelsea fans await the 1st of July. That’s the day the Adidas kit manufacturing deal comes to an end and Nike take over with a brand new kit.
It is also believed that the club are waiting for that day to unveil new signings. Makes sense as you don’t want to parade a new signing in a kit he will never wear. Rumours of both the new kits and signings have been evident on social media and it kind of makes you feel like a kid at Christmas as the date grows ever closer. However, rather than opening presents we will all be clued to the internet waiting for the big launch and notification of who will be appearing in those kits come August.
As for new signings – Rumours are rife that Monaco’s French international Tiemoue Bakayoko is due to put pen to paper and make a £35m move to Stamford Bridge. Also Brazilian Alex Sandro could make a £60m move from Juventus.
It remains to be seen, but I really can’t wait for the day to arrive.
