Eyebrows were raised when Chelsea surprisingly leapt in to steal the signing of former Premier League and Arsenal star, Cesc Fabregas. Barcelona are going through a transitional period at the moment and have let stars like Fabregas leave in order to acquire the bulk of the finance to bring Luis Suarez to their ranks. The Gunners had first refusal on Fabregas but opted not to take back the fan favourite, instead choosing to spend the money on Chile's Alexis Sanchez. Jose Mourinho saw the opening to swoop in and capture the Spanish international for around £30 million. For such a hefty fee, you cannot help but think, was it a wise move?..
