Gary Neville has lauded Chelsea’s activity in the summer transfer window as “exemplary”.

Their business concluded on Tuesday night with the loan addition of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, who they can sign next year for £30m.

Neville believes Chelsea had a very successful summer which has only been furthered with the addition of Saul.

Speaking on Sky Sports, the pundit said: “Saul is just another excellent player. He’s got massive experience at the top of La Liga, massive experience in the Champions League and at international level.

“He fits the Chelsea profile of signing players that are ready.

“Very rarely Chelsea, even with Tammy Abraham, they let them grow for a few years and who knows, they might even buy Tammy Abraham back with the buyback clause when he’s perfect.

“That’s Chelsea’s model and you look at what they’ve done in this transfer window in terms of ins and outs and again, it’s been another exemplary performance from them.”

Thomas Tuchel certainly has a stacked squad to work with as he attempts to add more silverware to the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup successes.
