With Manchester United appointing David Moyes as their new manager, there are now two big Premier League managerial spots to be filled. While Bill Kenwright has a job on his hands to replace the consistent Moyes at Everton, it seems to be accepted by pretty much everyone that Roman has already agreed a deal with Jose Mourinho to return to the club where he really launched himself on the world stage. With the bookies now offering odds as short as 1/12 on Mourinho succeeding Rafa Benitez, it seems inevitable that the special one will return.
Jose has been publicly eyeing up Chelsea for the last few months. Like the blonde bombshell at the bar winking at you all night waiting for you to make your move, Mourinho seems really up for it. And what better time for him to return? With Manchester United facing their first managerial change in 3 decades, Manchester City facing up to the reality of a crushing and comprehensive defeat to their defence of the title and Arsenal facing another summer of mediocrity in the transfer market, the league is ripe for a rejuvenated Mourinho.
Chelsea have a squad that is no more than one of two additions away from being one of the strongest in recent memory. In Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar, we have 3 of the most exciting and creative attacking midfielders in world football. Most big teams are built around one such player – and we have 3! There is no doubt that Chelsea need a striker, but it’s not as if we won’t be able to attract the top talent. With Roman’s chequebook and Jose’s appeal, there are few players that we can’t realistically target.
This is an exciting time to be a Chelsea fan, and the thought of Jose tearing it up in the league is truly mouth-watering. The fun times are coming…
