The German playmaker Mesut Ozil is very keen on following in Michael Ballack’s footprints by moving to Stamford Bridge.
His contract with Werder Bremen is entering the final year, and with no chance of him signing an extension, Bremen will have no choice but to sell him or risk him leaving on a free next summer.
“The World Cup is all that matters at the moment,” he said. “When I get back we can think about my future, but for now it’s not something I want to give a lot of thought to. To the top players, the Premier League is attractive.
“You look at what Manchester United and Chelsea have achieved over the last five years and you see it would be easy to be successful at two clubs like that. I see what Michael Ballack achieved at Chelsea and the quality of players he played with and the temptation becomes obvious.
“Trophies are what matters to me. There are two teams in England always at the top and of course that’s attractive, but the same is true for La Liga. They’re the strongest leagues in the world.”
Can anyone think of a better replacement for Joe Cole?
