The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are doing their upmost to wind up the Man United locals by suggesting Jose Mourinho is a Blues reject, only good for the Red Devils.
While that may not truly be the case, it appears the two clubs could be set for emotional battles considering the Portuguese’s status in West London.
The first of which could involve a big money transfer tussle as both sides bid to land a countryman of the self-proclaimed ‘Special One.’
According to Portuguese outlet A Bola, the fallen Premier League champions are gearing up to muscle in on a deal for highly rated Sporting Lisbon winger Joao Mario this summer.
The 23-year old has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford for a number of months now after emerging as one of the best players in the Primeira Liga.
With the Blues also expected to undergo wholesale changes as a new manager prepares to arrive, the Portugal star could be one of the stories of the summer.
Who will finish higher next season, Conte or Mourinho?
