It has been reported on many occasions that Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte is desperate for new signings in January which has seen a lot of players linked with the London club.

Conte is eager to add attacking reinforcements to his squad as he feels his squad is short in that department.

Lucas Moura is the latest player to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge. The Paris St. Germain winger has been frozen out in the French capital club since the signing of fellow Brazilian Neymar and French whiz kid Kylian Mbappe.

It is believed the 25-year old – who was close to joining Man United in the past – is keen on a move away from PSG.
It is quite interesting to see Chelsea linked with Moura as it is believed the main priority of the club is to sign a center forward to back up and provide competition for Alvaro Morata.

Lucas Moura, however, is a player capable of improving the Chelsea squad. He is regarded as a quick, diminutive, and mobile winger, who is also powerful, creative and technically gifted. He is capable of more than one attacking position as he has been deployed as a forward, in midfield or as an attacking midfielder behind the main striker in the past.

Jose Mourinho

You can’t make a list of top five managers in the world without including former Manchester United manager José Mourinho and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola due to their impressive managerial records.

Both managers came up against each other during their days in the Spanish La Liga before they later crossed paths in the English Premier League.

Picking the best manager from these two tacticians has always been a problem for many pundits, just as it is difficult to decide who is the best player between Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Loading...

However, Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibramovich has revealed the reason why he will always pick the Portuguese over his Spanish counterpart.

The striker — who worked with the two managers — told reporters that Mourinho knows how to control the players under his watch and the manager remains a special one and a winner.

He said the former Chelsea manager seamlessly creates a peaceful atmosphere for his players and he had a positive impact on his successful career, unlike Guardiola who treated him (Ibramovich) badly during their time at Camp Nou.

“He had an incredible impact on my career, He is still ‘the Special One’, a winner. I hope he will be back on a bench soon and I am sure he will start winning immediately.” he said.

Speaking of Guardiola, Ibramovich said: “We never had a direct confrontation because of him. When we faced each other, he hid.

“He [Guardiola] waited for me to leave and then left the dressing room. As a coach, he is a phenomenon, but as a man…” he concluded.
