Chelsea transfer news and rumours: Jose Mourinho, Aubameyang, Benat
Chelsea FC transfer news brings in reports speculating the exit of Jose Mourinho from Real Madrid at the end of the season. The question on every Blues’ fan’s mind is whether he will return to Stamford Bridge or not. Many reports state that the Portuguese international is looking to move to the Premier League after his stint with the Spanish side.
Mourinho has been linked with many Premier League clubs including the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, but the bookies are placing their bets on the return of Mourinho to Chelsea FC. With Roman Abramovich mending fences with the current Madrid manager, fans would be hoping for the arrival of ‘The One’ to Stamford Bridge.
A Spanish journalist was quoted saying, “There are 11 games to go in the La Liga season, and there are 11 La Liga games to go in Mourinho’s career at Real Madrid. He’s leaving in the summer. For this reason, he hasn’t participated in Real’s preparations for the coming pre-season, while he also hasn’t been involved in discussions about the club’s tour to China and he isn’t interested.”
The Blues might be looking to give Arsenal FC competition for the signing of Saint-Etienne striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The 23-year-old who has been named as the ‘African Neymar’ has scored 16 times in 27 appearances for the club. With Chelsea FC found wanting in the striking department, the Brazilians striker could add the much-needed fire power to the Stamford Bridge attack.
Real Betis are reportedly trying to offer midfielder Benat, a new contract to retain the Spaniard. Chelsea FC and the Gunners have been monitoring the performance of the player. Reports suggest that his agent is looking to move him out of Betis.
