Gary Neville praises Chelsea’s "exemplary performance" in summer transfer window

Gary Neville has lauded Chelsea's activity in the summer transfer window as "exemplary".

Their business concluded late last night with the loan addition of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, who they can sign next year for £30m.

He joins Marcus Bettinelli and Romelu Lukaku, who could be a game-changing, title-winning signing, as the three new faces through the door at Stamford Bridge.

Most of the club's focus has been out outgoings. 11 players have been shipped off permanently, whilst 10 have been sent on loan.

Neville believes they've had a very successful summer which has only been furthered with the addition of Saul.

Speaking on Sky Sports' Good Morning Sports Fans, the pundit said: "He’s just another excellent player. He’s got massive experience at the top of La Liga, massive experience in the Champions League and at international level.

"He fits the Chelsea profile of signing players that are ready.

"Very rarely Chelsea, even with Tammy Abraham, they let them grow for a few years and who knows, they might even buy Tammy Abraham back with the buyback clause when he’s perfect.

What rating would you give Chelsea's summer window out of 10 and why? Let us know in the comments section.

"That’s Chelsea’s model and you look at what they’ve done in this transfer window in terms of ins and outs and again, it’s been another exemplary performance from them."

Thomas Tuchel certainly has a stacked squad to work with as he attempts to add more silverware to the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup successes.

He hasn't had too much to do as his predecessor Frank Lampard recruited so significantly last summer, spending well over £200m.

The only area that could carry potential concern would be at centre-back, with Tuchel deploying a back three and Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori both being sold.

In their place the German boss has been presenting an opportunity to 22-year-old Trevoh Chalobah, who started and scored in the opening day victory against Crystal Palace.

The Blues were trying to get Sevilla's Jules Kounde through the door but failed to do so.

Aside from Chalobah, they are left with Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, and Thiago Silva, with Malang Sarr set to go out on loan.
