2010-11 was a season to forget at Stamford Bridge. No silverware and a change at manager offers up many questions for next season.
The Blues are a strong but aging team. Talent and depth in the squad that finished second in the Premier League last season needs to be improved. Chelsea were decimated by injuries throughout the November and December stretch that saw a historical run of poor form that ultimately cost the Blues the title.
Undoubtedly, big names will depart in the summer, and the ruthless Russian billionaire will have money to spend on some of the most famous prospects in world football. Here are some potential signings that could pay dividends at the Bridge next season so Roman Abramovich can finally obtain his elusive Champions League title.
These signings could offer depth and take some of the strain off the shoulders of the Chelsea stars that are expected to play 90 minutes every game. This rest could in turn lead to fewer injuries. These transfers are of the utmost importance with injury and age becoming so prevalent.
