Harry Maguire cost the same as Chelsea's entire defence, Blues rejoice at this fact

Reddit user Zarly88 has pointed out a very interesting fact - Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire cost as much as the entire Chelsea defence, including the goalkeeper!

The Red Devils paid £80M for the English centre-back back in 2018, breaking the world-record transfer fee for a defender.

In contrast, here are the fees paid by Chelsea for the back 5 that have started most games for us this season (figures via Transfermarkt):

Edouard Mendy - £22M

Reece James - £0 (academy product)

Thiago Silva - £0 (acquired on a free transfer)

Kurt Zouma - £13M

Ben Chilwell - £45M

The total cost for these 5 players comes out to exactly £80M.

So far this season, the Blues have conceded just 10 goals in 8 games and are 5th in the Premier League table.

Meanwhile, Man United have let in 14 goals and are 14th in the league table.

This just proves that transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is a genius - we can't say the same for United's director Ed Woodward!

And of course, Chelsea fans are loving this piece of information:
