In the Papers



Jose Mourinho killed off Manchester United’s title hopes then said: It’s all over for them now

I found this in the Sun. Their title hopes where long gone earlier than this game.

The hat-trick by Samuel Eto’o against Manchester United could prove both a costly and painful for one Chelsea fan after he vowed to get a tattoo of the player’s face if he managed to score three times at Stamford Bridge

I found this in the Metro. This is actually hilarious but fair play to the lad he has going to get it done.


Chelsea have told Manchester United they will have to pay £40m for Spain midfielder Juan Mata, 25, who is keen to leave Stamford Bridge to secure regular first-team football ahead of the summer’s World Cup

I found this in the Daily Mail. I hope we don’t sell him especially to United I will be gutted if we do.

Chelsea remain keen on Wayne Rooney and will bid again for the England striker but United plan to stick to their stance that he is not for sale

I found this in the Daily Mail. I would like to sign Rooney but leave it until Summer where we will get him cheaper due to contract expiry in 12 months and the possibilty of United not being in the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho believes Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will bankroll another splurge – if Financial Fair Play rules are not enforced

I found this in the Sun. But to buy who? Luke Shaw is the only player I can think of that we could need especially with only having one Left Back in the team now.


Manchester United are ready to break their transfer record with a £37m bid for Spanish midfielder Mata, but Chelsea are thought to want £40m for the player they bought from Valencia for £23.5m in 2011

I found this in The Times. I don’t want him to go I really don’t

Atletico Madrid manager boss Diego Simeone says he is willing to pay whatever it costs to keep Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, 21, when his loan spell runs out at the end of the season

I found this in the Daily Express. Don’t sell him just don’t he is our future keeper.

Chelsea’s decision to sell Juan Mata to Manchester United is part of a plan to land Everton’s 20-year-old midfielder Ross Barkley

I found this in the Daily Telegraph. Not only Barkley but supposedly we have first dibs on Rooney now as this move is a sweetner.

Meanwhile, Chelsea and Arsenal look set to be frustrated in their pursuit of Jackson Martinez, 27, as the striker will sign a new deal at Porto

I found this in the Daily Star. This deal went dead after transfer deadline day in the Summer.

Mourinho is said to want to use some of the funds from the sale of Mata to bring in Real Sociedad’s France Under-21s wide midfielder Antoine Griezmann, 22

I found this in the Sun. Griezmann and Salah are the two men the money is being spent on.

John Terry is resigned to the fact he’ll be leaving Chelsea when his current contract expires in the summer

I found this in the Daily Mirror. Don’t believe this Mourinho has been given the rule over Lampard’s, Terry’s and Cole’s future.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho yesterday nicked £12m wing sensation Mohamed Salah from under the nose of Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers

I found this in the Daily Star. I knew we would move for him I am surprised it has moved so quickly to him having a medical this weekend.

Trabzonspor are planning a bid for Chelsea striker Demba Ba

I found this in the Daily Mirror. This all depends on how long Torres is out for.

Liverpool could turn to Spartak Moscow’s Brazilian midfielder Romulo, 23, who has also been scouted by Arsenal and Chelsea, after learning that Lucas Leiva could miss up to two months with a knee injury

I found this in the Daily Star. He is a mould of Makalele just not as good now but he can become a great holding midfielder.
