Jose Mourinho failed in a late bid to sign a Brazilian defender

Published Add your comment

Hello, Chelsea fans. Welcome to your daily roundup. Chelsea may have officially confirmed deals for Papy Djilobodji and Michael Hector on transfer deadline day, but Jose Mourinho still made an effort to sign Brazilian Luisao. That’s according to new rumours from Portugal that insist the Blues made a €5million bid for the Benfica centre-back, although it was flatly refused without much consideration. It was then that Mourinho turned his attentions to Djilobodji, having already missed out on John Stones, though it might be a tad unfair to label the Senegalese international as purely a backup option. In other news Paul Pogba could cost any interested parties as much as €100m, according to Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta. The Blues have been linked with the France international frequently in the past, but even Roman Abramovich might flinch at having to stump up that sum if he gets the chance either in January or next year.
