Less than two weeks ago Chelsea fans were up in arms.

It is a good deal for the club, Ajax (a club long used to selling their biggest assets) are receiving a decent fee in return and the player has earned a long-awaited move to the big leagues.

The decision to sign Hakim Ziyech from Ajax in the summer for £33million, potentially rising to £36million, looks like a bargain and, ultimately, considering what happened last month is just good business.

The transfer window was drawing to a close with no incomings and many were questioning why the club went to all the bother of getting their transfer ban halved in that Court of Arbitration for Sport appeal.

Everyone seems a winner right now, but Granovskaia is owed an apology from her critics for making the economically sensible decision.

Chelsea, meanwhile, were not willing to pay a ludicrous fee for a 26-year-old attacking midfielder who was under contract until the summer of 2022 but dialogue between the clubs continued and progress over a summer sped up considerably in the past few days.

And instead of paying way over the odds for Ziyech last month they are saving a significant amount of money by welcoming him to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
