Welcome to football.london’s live Chelsea blog on Friday September 3.
The 2021 summer transfer window closed on Tuesday night and Chelsea got their man – the Blues completed the season-long loan signing of Saul Niguez late into the night.
There was a late scare with Atletico Madrid’s move for Antoine Griezmann, which seemingly had implications in Saul leaving the Spanish capital, reportedly set to collapse.
However, the deal for Saul was already done and Chelsea confirmed the signing just before midnight, while Griezmann did complete his return to Madrid.
There were other deals done in the day for the Blues, in terms of outgoings, and you can read about all the reaction and fallout from that in the blog. We’ll also be updating you with all the latest Saul reaction as well as reporting on how certain players from the west London club got on last night on international duty.
With that said, stay tuned throughout the day for all the latest goings-on at Stamford Bridge.
