Chelsea Video Rating: four / five
Chelsea is quickly becoming serious title contenders with consistent performances and good results that have allowed them to stay right behind Manchester City and Arsenal in the Premier League.
Bertrand Traore signed a 4 year contract with Chelsea as he became the first signing of Jose Mourinho’s side in January. The 18 years old player Traore had previously signed a contract with Chelsea back in October but had to wait until the transfer window opened up again in order to officially become a player of the Premier League club.
Juan Mata is rumored to be frustrated with the limited playing time he has under the guidance of Jose Mourinho and might make a move away from the club if things don’t take a turn for the better.
Mourinho said: “I want to keep him. I want to keep him. I don’t want him to go.
“That’s my opinion, my wish. But my door is open and the club’s door is open too. When a player wants to speak with us we are there waiting.”
Jose Mourinho knows it himself that the Spanish midfielder is unhappy with the current role that he has right now in Chelsea. PSG is a possible destination for Juan Mata if he indeed leaves Chelsea, PSG has already shown interest in securing the services of the player.
Another player that has been linked with a possible move away from the club is Kevin de Bruyne who joined Chelsea a year and a half ago with a price tag of £6.7million but his chances on playing on the main team are severely restricted.
Wolfsburg will be willing to offload £17 million for the Belgian player but the final decision will be on the hands of Jose Mourinho. Kevin de Bruyne truly wants to make it into the Belgium national team and play for the 2014 World Cup but this may be in jeopardy if he cannot get playing time in Chelsea.
