Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez set to bring in another highly rated Spaniard

Spanish boss Rafael Benitez is looking to make his mark in his transient tenure at Stamford Bridge by steadily enhancing the Spanish contingent at the club. The former Liverpool manager is looking to nab Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas for a measly sum of £8.5 million in the January transfer window after already purchasing Demba Ba from Newcastle last week.

According to the Daily Star, the Spanish club are currently deliberating the Blues’ offer which is considered to be too good to turn down for the 25 year old. Aspas is a late bloomer, having impressed with 8 goals in 18 appearances in La Liga this term. His reputation was first raised when he scored 23 goals in Celta Vigo’s promotion campaign to Spain’s top flight last term.

The likes of Juan Mata and Cesar Azpilicueta are settled at the Bridge and with the arrival of Aspas, the footballing flavour might turn a lot more exotic at the club. This seems to be consistent with Roman Abramovich’s desire for beautiful football and Benitez might just be setting the wheels in motion for that to happen.

Clubs no longer wish to emulate the Brazilian style of play which included a great deal of flair and a lot of theatrics. The Spanish style of football is being revered in the world for its promotion of perfection in fundamentals and its involvement of the whole team on the pitch. The Tiki-Taka revolution seems to have begun at Stamford Bridge.

    Can somebody relay this message to the appropriate quarters? Chelsea should give Torres some rest for like a month during which a psychologist will be attached to him. He need total holiday from football if he must regain his conscious in the game. Having said that, I don’t support the idea of chelsea paying heavily for Facao. Get a sharp young striker and with the array of talents at our disposer in mid-field, there is non stopping us. May God help chelsea,

    Chelsea need to go on, but the owner or the needs to make permanent manager. otherwise there will be no winning. Most of the club in the world those who have success in their ways had permanent manager
