Chelsea winger Willian wants five more years at Stamford Bridge

Manchester City overpaid for their big summer signing Riyad Mahrez according to the study

Chelsea signed the Brazilian global in the summer of 2013 from the ranks of Anzhi Makhachkala and he has been an instrumental player for the London based outfit.

Finally, Robinho moved to another Premier League club Manchester City in that summer for a transfer fee of around €43 million.

Revealing Los Blancos elected to send him to City over Chelsea due to a "matter of pride", Robinho told FourFourTwo: "My main goal was to move to Chelsea - Big Phil [Scolari] had said I could make the difference for him as his squad, according to him, was not creative enough".

At the other end of the scale, Chelsea top the list of English clubs who missed out on transfer fees, when they let Courtois go for £20.8m less than his worth.

"I know a lot of Chelsea fans will understand my decision and I wish them the best".

"But that's also the quality of Real Madrid, that's not saying Chelsea doesn't have quality".

Paul Manafort reaches ‘tentative’ plea deal with Robert Mueller
Word of the agreement comes as Manafort's second trial was slated to begin later this month in federal court in Washington , D.C. Another trial was to begin later this month based on charges filed against Manafort a year ago in Washington , DC.

"Always I say that I want to stay at Chelsea as long as possible, and I am happy to stay here". The 34-year-old now plays for Turkish club Sivasspor. I loved playing there and I am happy to have won two Premier Leagues, a league cup and an FA Cup.

"I started well, but unfortunately there weren't as many great names as there are these days".

Courtois initially joined the Blues from Belgian side KRC Genk in 2011 but was immediately loaned to Atletico Madrid, where he enjoyed a three-season spell, winning a La Liga title, a Copa del Rey, Europa League and a European Super Cup.

"I don't think I had much to prove to Man City or anyone in England", he said. "I don't have any problem at all to play on the left or on the right".

If you want to become a bigger club, then you need more than one or two star names - you need a strong group and substitutes.
