After the failed attempt to get the midfielder during the summer transfer window,Chelsea has finally broken the tie on the transfer bid. Ross Barkley has signed for Chelsea from Everton, the Premier League champions have announced. The 24-year-old’s contract at Goodison Park was due to expire at the end of the season after he rejected a new deal with the Toffees. A move to Chelsea on transfer deadline day in August did not materialise, but Barkley has now moved to Stamford Bridge for a cut-price fee, reported to be in the region of £15million. Twenty-four-year-old Barkley has signed a five-and-a-half-year contract, which runs until 2023. The midfield gets tight and Chelsea tougher both on pitch and bench. But who benches for the newly signed?. -Marachi Egwim
