Jose Mourinho to hold summer transfer talks with Chelsea

Published 1 Comments

Jose Mourinho is set to meet the Chelsea board in the coming weeks to firm up his transfer plans for what is expected to be a busy summer, according to the Independent.

The Blues fell just short in the Premier League title race and in the Champions League this season - which could prompt something of a summer splurge in the transfer market.

Reports suggest Chelsea are on the verge of sealing a big-money deal for striker Diego Costa which could be announced after the Champions League final, in order to bolster their beleaguered forward line.

Tottenham midfielder Paulinho has also been mooted as a potential target for the Stamford Bridge-based club.

According to the Independent, Mourinho will meet with Chelsea's board of directors in the coming weeks to discuss the club's transfer plans including the move for Costa.

High up the agenda will also be potential out-goings at the club, with numerous players seemingly set to leave.

Veteran duo Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole are in the final year of their contracts and could well leave - however Chelsea have announced that defender John Terry has penned a one-year extension.

Strike pair Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o are also likely to leave but Fernando Torres could still stay put despite a host of rumours suggesting his time at Stamford Bridge was coming to an end.

Yes, he's in my plans," Mourinho told Sky Sports when asked about the striker. "He's a good player.

"I keep saying the same - Fernando is not the kind of player that with half a chance, he scores a goal. He's not the kind of guy that's going to score goal after goal. But the way he works, the way he moves, the work he contributes for the team... he is a player that I like, a player that the club respects and we are happy to have him next season, no problem."
