Metro have Chelsea fans looking up with complete focus here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they note that Chelsea could well be in line to land a rather well known forward.
Blues manager Jose Mourinho knows Mario Balotelli rather well after their time at Inter Milan together, where both won the treble.
Now, despite the rumours of both failing to get on and Mourinho even calling the player ‘unmanageable’ the Chelsea boss has not ruled out a future move.
Mourinho seems to remember his time with Balotelli positively, and as one of our punters notes, Chelsea are of course in the hunt for a star forward this summer.
Balotelli is settled at AC Milan, but knows that the club are struggling, and will not get into the Champions League next term. A move to Chelsea would allow Mario to play in the elite club competition and it seems he just might get that chance.
The Special One claimed: “Balotelli is with a big club at the moment but you never know the future.”
We think this is Jose opening a couple of doors – not to mention taking the opportunity to play some much loved mind games!
Do you think that Mourinho and Balotelli will work together again in the future? Let us know your thoughts below.
