According to Metro, he has a rather firm idea in mind of how he can proceed.
The Blues manager is getting ready to allow long serving midfielder John Obi Mikel to leave the club – and has eyed Marseille star Giannelli Imbula as his replacement.
As one of our punters notes, Mikel may have been at Chelsea for a long while now, but he is still a divisive figure for the fans – with some feeling the player has never really produced.
Of course, a host of our punters remind us that Mikel is an ever present in the Chelsea side, and to still be there and playing with the amount of managers the Blues have been through, is certainly something.
Mourinho is however willing to allow the Nigerian to leave for a small fee, and is continuing in rebuilding the Blues in his style and vision.
We have already seen Michael Essien leave the club, and the likes of Nemanja Matic arrive, not to mention the departure of highly popular player Juan Mata.
Would Giannelli Imbula fit the bill at Stamford Bridge? Let us know your thoughts below.
