So it’s all but agreed then. Jose Mourinho will go head to head with David Moyes for the next few years in the new era of titanic Premier League scuffles. Many think Manchester United will initially struggle to keep the bar at its current height under Moyes, but let’s not forget that the new man finds the club in an immeasurably better position than when Fergie took over 26 years ago. Everything, down to initialed toilet roll, is in place for David Moyes to maintain Manchester United’s success.
Moyes is a top quality coach and the fireworks between Manchester United and Chelsea are surely just beginning. When you add City to Chelsea and Manchester United you are looking at a league which will undoubtedly be the strongest in Europe once more. Germany and Spain are of course strong but Mourinho and Moyes will want to spend the next few years rubbing their faces in the dirt as England once again sees European domination.
Mourinho will of course want to add some fresh faces to the squad for his violent assault on every trophy going. Andre Schurrle will add yet more flair to a squad with more talent than a Swedish beauty contest. But Mourinho will want to add some physicality and a top striker to this squad. Let’s see who he might go for
Jose would of course love to take Ronaldo to Chelsea but recent rumours have suggested that their friendship is not as strong as it once was. No other forward at Real would really interest Jose, so we are really looking at Falcao, Cavani and perhaps Robert Lewandowski. Mourinho will also want to bring the highly impressive Romelu Lukaku back into the fold after a year at West Brom. Mourinho may well see Lukaku as his next Drogba.
Frank Lampard will be flatulent with joy that his Chelsea career could well be safeguarded by the incoming Special One. Chelsea have so much talent in there but Mourinho will undoubtedly want to add some steel. Mikel will continue to do a decent job in the defensive midfield but expect an enforcer to come in also. Fellaini perhaps? His old boss might have a say in that however.
Despite continued lapses from Luiz, Chelsea look pretty strong at the back and Jose will put his faith in John Terry if he’s fit. But Mourinho may look to plunder his old club for someone like Raphael Varane. The adaptible and highly talented youngster became a first team regular at Real last season, at only 20 years old. That’s some feat, regardless of what a shambles Madrid’s defence can resemble.
Let’s face it. Chelsea don’t need a lot to make them a champion team. A top striker and a bit of steel in the middle and Chelsea will be taking Manchester United all the way next season. Can’t we just start it now?
