Stephane M'Bia is still a QPR player until the end of June, but he is already pushing for a move to another part of London. Although he starred in La Liga with Sevilla last season, the Cameroonian midfielder has admitted that he wants to play in the Champion's league next term.
M'Bia completed a season-long loan with the La Liga side, partly due to QPR having to lower their wage bill after relegation from the Premier League. He had a very good season with Sevilla and is now attracting interest from clubs looking to sign him on a free transfer.
He has wasted no time in trying to engineer a possible, if not rather unlikely move to Chelsea, declaring his respect for boss Jose Mourinho. M'Bia is quoted in AS as saying "My dream is to be coached by Mourinho, because I think he's a great coach".
He also states that he wants to move to a club competing in the Champion's League next season and, as much as that might be a genuine possibility following his performances in Spain last year, a move to Chelsea is unlikely.
Currently Chelsea are well stocked in that particular area of midfield, with Ramires and John Obi Mikel having been joined by the extremely impressive Nemanja Matic. There are rumours circulating of Real Madrid's interest in signing Ramires, and a free agent signing as cover might be seen as beneficial to Chelsea, there are a lot of 'ifs' that would be concerned with this transfer.
There are several teams that would benefit from a player such as M'Bia, some of which are in the Champion's league next season. However, despite his flattery towards the Special One, Chelsea are not likely to be one of those clubs.
