Done! Chelsea have completed the BARGAIN signing of the season

     Steve McManaman has praised Chelsea for making the “bargain” signing of the month after completing a deal to bring Ross Barkley to the club from Everton. The Blues announced on Friday that they had concluded a deal to sign the 24-year-old midfielder from the Toffees for a fee believed to be in the region on £15m.

The switch signalled Chelsea’s intent to significantly bolster their squad in the January transfer window as Antonio Conte looks to lead the Blues to a successful second half of the campaign.

Barkley has signed a five-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea and will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the team in the coming few weeks.

Speaking to BT Sport on Saturday, McManaman said: “It’s a bargain [for] a 24-year-old England international.

“We know how talented he is, he just needs refining. He needs to learn off some of the best.

“He’s going to play with better players, for a great manager… I think he’ll come on a ton, Ross Barkley. It’s a great piece of business by Chelsea.”
