Chelsea's owner, Roman Abramovich has a deep pocket, and he craves for the Champions' League trophy. He paid what was then the highest transfer fee in English football for Andriy Shevchenko in 2006. The business turned bad. Unabated, he bought Nicholas Anelka the following season, Deco, Ramires, Benayoun, and more recently, the £50m Fernando Torres.
All that combined, and Chelsea still could not deliver, for the man standing in their path is the most decorated player in the history of English football, Ryan Giggs.
Now that Chelsea's quest for trophy this season has gone hopelessly down the drain, the Chelsea owner would have had sufficient time to ponder the wrong move he'd committed thus far. But we all know what he should have done: he should have splashed the cash for the 37 year-old.
