Metro have Chelsea fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Jose Mourinho is getting personally involved in trying to convince Nicolas Otamendi’s move to Manchester United.
United were thought to be close to landing the player, but as Metro seem to think Jose Mourinho is making a personal call to the player’s agent, none other than Jorge Mendes, we think that could well be off the table.
Otamendi is apparently seen as a replacement for John Terry, and Chelsea want to land the Valencia centre back before their rivals do – and are willing to pay the asking price in order to make this happen.
United are desperate to land a top class centre half – and we think they cannot afford to let another slip through the net.
Chelsea fans. Do you think Mourinho would be able to steal the player from under United’s nose? Is he the ideal John Terry replacement? Let us know your thoughts below.
