Chelsea have finally completed a major signing – and they just about took any excitement out of the news for fans by announcing it in the most cringe-inducing way possible.
As you’ll probably have heard by now, the Blues and their supporters are probably still feeling a little bit fragile at the moment after missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United in such a public way.
Well, Antonio Conte was probably feeling a lot better today after the club managed to complete a deal for Roma centre-back Antonio Rüdiger, for a fee thought to be in the region of £34 million.
If you’re a Chelsea fan, it’s great – right? Well, yeah, but the announcement video made our toe curl until they almost fell off:

Social media, eh? Brave new world.
What do you make of the purchase in general? Is he exactly what Conte needs to take Chelsea to the next level?
