CHELSEA women have had a habit in the past of getting their transfer deals done early in the window – and it seems athat they plan on doing that once again this window.

Macario is a very gifted player that will add something to that Chelsea attack – when she is back playing fully fit.

The summer window is a long one and to be honest – we are expecting Hayes to improve a number of positions in the side – especially as she wants that Champions League title next season.
