Chelsea are no stranger to a good transfer rumour or two. But following the return of the self-entitled Special One Jose Mourinho, the rumours this pre-season have gone into overdrive.
Mourinho has been tasked with reviving the fortunes the club enjoyed during his first spell as manager between 2004 and 2007, which saw them win two Premier League titles in three seasons.
Back then, Chelsea were very much the major force in the transfer market. Manchester City were yet to be taken over, and it appeared any player Mourinho fancied would arrive at Stamford Bridge with a simple click of the fingers.
His second spell looks set to be something similar if the gossip columns are anything to go by.
Mourinho has told us he has returned older and wiser, which leads you to think his signings may prove more astute than his first spell. For every Didier Drogba there appeared to be a Mateja Kezman, and Mourinho will be keen this time to make sure all his signings prove a success.
This leads you to think he has probably had a good laugh at some of the outrageous names being touted about.
