Many have criticised Chelsea for selling Romelu Lukaku and Mohamed Salah but according to former Liverpool player Jamie Redknapp, the only player Chelsea should regret selling is Kevin De Bruyne.
According to Redknapp, Chelsea have no reason to regret selling Lukaku and Salah because they aren’t as good as Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard.
“Mo Salah’s start at Liverpool has been sensational. He has scored nine Premier League goals already – more than any other Liverpool player after their first 12 games for the club, overtaking Robbie Fowler,” Redknapp told Daily Mail.
“When he left Chelsea, Salah must have questioned whether he was good enough to play at the top level. After thriving in Italy he has returned as one of the most exciting forwards in our league.
“Three high-profile ex-Chelsea players scored on Saturday – Salah, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne. The club have been criticised for letting them go but De Bruyne – now the Premier League’s best player – can be their only real regret.
“Would Antonio Conte trade Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata for Salah and Lukaku? And let us not forget that Chelsea have won the title in two of the last three seasons without this trio.”
