Punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are all keen to hear what Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been saying and luckily for them, Metro have the quotes hot off the press.
The Special One was asked about the club’s interest in Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas and admitted that the Blues are keen on the midfielder – but that if anything was going to happen, it would certainly be after the World Cup in Brazil this summer.
Mourinho claimed: “I am interested in studying the situation of Fabregas. I guess he is eager to leave Barcelona and motivated to return to England.”
Now as one of our punters points out, Gerard Pique has already been caught on camera claiming a fee had been agreed for the player – and it had been reported earlier this week that Cesc had indeed undergone a medical with the West London club.
Chelsea are of course looking to replace the legend that is Frank Lamaprd. Our resident Blues fans are a little bit resistant to the signing of Cesc, with Paul Pogba and Koke being the preferred targets.
Aaccording to one of our die hard Blues, the fact that the links alone have wound Arsenal fans up so badly, this at least represents one reason why the move might not be a bad one after all.
Chelsea fans. How certain are you that Cesc Fabregas will be your new number 4, taking David Luiz’s number next season? Let us know your thoughts below.
