The Premier League champions dun close to finish line ontop Tiemoue Bakayoko mata, Monaco interception badoo, wey allow Principality array of kanpe attacking talents to dey run riot last season.
Antonio Conte dey get younger aggressor to pair beside compatriot N’Golo Kante – and na why hin wan dispose Nemanja Matic like use CD b dat
But as e be say na only Cesc Fabregas and Nathaniel Chalobah hin get for reserve, na bold move by Conte as Chelsea dun dey ginger ready for assault for Champions League.
As e even be say Matic na one of nine regulars wey start at least 30 Premier League games last season.
Some kyn feelings dey show say hin fit get another gear in the player, dah kyn performance wet make am midfield monster for hin first 18 months for Chelsea.
The Serbian confidence dun slowly been dey rebuild by Conte after dah yamayama controversy wet see John Obi Mikel eclipse am ontop pecking order under Guus Hiddink.
The 28-year-old benefit from set hin get Kante beside am for testing times – as e be say na Cesc Fabregas dun ecpose am occasionally wen hin moral dun full break jar commot.
Forget fact say Matic get just two years left ontop hin ontract or say Chelsea dun set to make £19m profit ontop am; wet be say na of little comfort when Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne go ball elsewhere.
Matic go use silent pistol tear ground dey ball, and e go show say na defensive midfield be one position Mourinho dun target for Premier League experience this summer.
Mourinho believe in Matic, know hin qualities wella con get good record when e reach high-profile reunions – from Nuno Valente and Ricardo Carvalho to Samuel Eto’o and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Na Mourinho, after all, wey herald new era for English clubs to dey buy back players when hin pay £21m to bring Matic back to Chelsea for 2014.
And that undying belief fit unlock something in Matic as hin adjust to hin new surroundings up the M40.
Na similar story with Alvaro Morata.
The 24-year-old dun only work under four managers for hin senior career – Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti, Massimiliano Allegri and Zinedine Zidane.

The boyhood Madrid fan hustle wella for Juventus to finally get hin chance to return to hin home city, but hin never be main man.
That hunger to dey lead line, and fire Spain into next summer World Cup, na e mata now.
E reflect one kyn growing tread as Spaniards dey commot for their homeland; nine members of Spain current 25-man squad dey play inside Italy, England and Germany.
That desire to go prove unasef abroad also dun enta Ivan Perisic, another hard-working player wey wan win major honours either by crook or by hook.
The Croatian dey desperate to play for Champions League again after four-year absence con wan show satin hin sabi do after previous spells for France, Belgium, Germany and Italy.
As Victor Lindelof con arrive so, one ginger theme dun show: hard-working, hungry players wey dey eager to prove dem doubters wrong or make step up sef.
Mourinho dun prove record to dey pinpoint weakness and quickly identify solution for transfer market.
Dem fit no be the stardust of last summer on that hin shortlist, but no expect say day record go change anytime soon.
