Double deal possible
Jose Mourinho has plenty on his plate at the moment what with questions being asked over Chelsea’s potency and the backlash he’s facing over his treatment of the medical team, but he’ll have to add two more concerns to the pile, if reports are to be believed.
The Daily Mail today claim that Juventus have enquired about the possibility of signing both Ramires and Juan Cuadrado, with it said that the Blues are likely do allow a deal for the latter to take place.
Cuadrado hasn’t looked the part since signing from Fiorentina in January, though Ramires is a key part of Mourinho’s plans.
Stones hijack on?
Meanwhile John Stones might be Chelsea’s biggest summer transfer target but Manchester United are hell-bent on hijacking any potential deal.
Reports this morning state that Louis van Gaal wants to offer cash plus Jonny Evans to tempt Everton into making a deal. Chelsea have already had a series of bids rejected, and Mourinho will be none too happy if Stones is stolen from his sights by United.
Lehmann on Cech
Lastly Jens Lehmann has backed former Blues stopper Petr Cech to overcome his difficult start to Premier League life as Arsenal’s goalkeeper, citing Chelsea’s treatment of him as a reason.
The German said Cech had been left ‘disappointed’ by the way his ex-club had treated him last season. Does that explain why he was terrible for the Gunners against West Ham? We don’t think so.
