Even though Chelsea are top of the league with only twelve games to go, and without even hitting top form, you sense that the revolution is just beginning.
The Chelsea boss will of course be fighting tooth and nail to win the title for his club this season. But we can see that he is also building for the future. This current team isn’t yet built in Mourinho’s image.
Nemanja Matic has come in and looks like the sort of player that Mourinho will hang his hat on over the next few years. A determined, mobile man mountain who has great skill, power and athleticism.
He will take the place of the likes of Mikel, Essien and Lampard over the next few years. But you sense that Jose will look to add another for the ‘2’ in the 4-2-3-1 formation that he loves to use.
Ramires can certainly do a job there and we still haven’t seen what the unfortunate Marco van Ginkel can do.
But reports today suggested Chelsea have held discussions with another player who could definitely fit into that template. Talksport says that Chelsea have already had talks with Real Madrid star Sami Khedira over a move.
Jose Mourinho wants to be reunited with Sami Khedira and Chelsea have already held talks with Real Madrid over a summer move.
Khedira was a firm favourite of Mourinho’s during their time at Madrid together and the Chelsea manager wants the midfield man at Stamford Bridge.
He’s been out for virtually all of the season with a serious knee injury but, on form, he’s a top athlete and box to box belter.
The 26 year old has scored six goals in 89 appearances for Real Madrid since he joined the club in 2010. He’s also represented Germany 44 times, netting 4 goals.
Let’s take a look at him in action. Chelsea fans – would you be happy to shell out a large proportion of your summer transfer budget on Khedira?
