Cheapski Chelsea grab a freebie
Chelsea’s latest signing appears to further confirm the new transfer philosophy at Stamford Bridge.
Pizarro, 28, scored 97 goals in 229 games for Munich and has held talks recently with Chelsea, Juventus and Wolfsburg. Last season he wanted a move to England. He’s a good player and a decent signing, no more than cover though. It’s a blockbuster deal but he’s big and strong, very direct and left footed. He had a bad season at Bayern being preferred to Roque Santa Cruz who scored exactly 0 goals in 22 games. No wonder he wanted to leave.
