Chelsea continue to sweep all before them in the Premier League, recording a 14th win in 15 matches at defending champions Leicester on Saturday to open up a seven-point lead at the top of the table.
Defensive solidity has been key to the Blues’ recent success, with 11 clean sheets kept during this impressive sequence of results, but they will not be resting on their laurels in the transfer market.
According to talkSPORT, one potential big-name summer signing could well be Gerard Pique, with the 29-year-old thought to be unsettled at Barcelona.
The Spanish international boasts a trophy collection that is the envy of most players, including winning the Champions League on three occasions:
|29Y 11M||AGE||36Y 1M|
|6FT 3IN||HEIGHT||6FT 2IN|
|13ST 5LB||WEIGHT||14ST 5LB|
|CL | BCN, MNU |||| CHE | CL|
|08/98 - 01/17||08/98 - 01/17|
His numbers in Europe’s premier club competition are certainly impressive, keeping 34 clean sheets and only conceding a goal once every 92 minutes on average.
They are not quite as good those put up by John Terry, mind you, with the Chelsea legend playing a part in 50 clean sheets and conceding a goal once every 108 minutes on average.
Antonio Conte can no longer find a place for the 36-year-old in his starting XI, however, so replacing him with another of the world’s great centre-backs makes perfect sense if a deal can be struck.
