Chelsea are signing players after watching their YouTube clips

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has taken a dig at the recruitment policy at Chelsea.

Paul Merson believes Chelsea under Todd Boehly are recruiting players on impulse after watching them on YouTube.

The former Arsenal star questioned the signing of midfield duo Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo.

“To spend a billion pounds on those players… Wow. I mean, I don’t know who would sign half of them,” Merson wrote in his Sky Sports column.

“Enzo Fernandez for £100m and £115m on Moises Caicedo. Who’s gone out with the vision that these are going to be the best two midfield players in world football? Because they should be for nearly a quarter of a billion pounds. They should run the show every game.

“It almost seems like agents are sending videos of a player, five-minute clips, and Chelsea have gone, ‘I’ll take him. Oh my God, how good is he? Look at his clips. Look at him’.

“They’ve just got a YouTube team together. Like they’ve looked at clips and put it together and gone, ‘this team can play. Look at these.’ But it’s a million miles off.”
