Not quite ready yet...

With the Premier League to start this weekend, most teams are left working out the kinks. Chelsea's Carlo Ancelotti has come out many times already saying that the team are ready, and no more transfers are to be made. Yet, even with the first league game so close, rumors are still flying that Chelsea is still looking for that one signing.

"According to The Sun, Chelsea have made contact with Bayern Munich in regards to a possible deal for Franck Ribery.

It is claimed that the Stamford Bridge club will offer around €47 million for the French playmaker, a fee that would supersede Manchester City's UK record €42.5m purchase of Robinho."

That would make Franck the highest transfer in England. After a summer of being chased, I think Ribery's move, if at all possible, will come down to the wire. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in a Chelsea shirt by September. I think it's the signing that all of the club at Chelsea have been patiently waiting for.
