Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has thrown Blues fans a curveball by revealing the one player he'd love to have amongst his star-studded squad next season, with his answer one that Stamford Bridge regulars of a certain generation will remember with huge pride.
Mourinho was taking part in a Twitter question and answer session on Friday evening and was asked who he would sign for Chelsea if he was given unlimited choice of players from past and present, trumping for Blues legend Peter Osgood rather than the likes of Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo or Didier Drogba.
The man with the Special One moniker responded: "I go for Peter Osgood. He is important part of Chelsea history #AskJose #Special1s. JM."
Osgood was king of the Kings Road during a decade of loyal service to Chelsea, scoring 148 goals from 1964 through to 74 during a period when the Blues won the League Cup, European Cup Winners Cup and most famously the FA Cup after a bitter battle with Leeds United.
Mourinho clearly has an appreciation for Chelsea's history and decided to make that clear with his response, rather than pick a current world-class star that would've created unnecessary added transfer speculation.
The Blues are expected to be very busy in this summer's transfer market after the first season of Mourinho's second spell in charge of the Blues ended without silverware, despite a run to the Champions League semi-finals.
Atletico Madrid forward Costa and Bayern Munich outcast Mario Mandzukic are among the stars expected to spearhead a vastly-improved attacking unit next term.
