‘He is a speedy player’ – Mourinho gets advice over Chelsea star move

Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager José Mourinho is being linked with a move for Chelsea star winger Willian and Tottenham’s defender Toby Alderweireld in since last month but nothing has been made official yet.

The Portuguese tactician is once again set to reignite interest in both players in the summer.

While reacting to Mourinho’s desire to work with both players in the coming season, Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley believes both players would be great additions to Mourinho’s squad should they eventually join the Red Devils.

According to the Scottish player, who is now a pundit,  Willian is a very speedy winger whose tricks, and pace would wreck havoc to opponents defense. He further laments the Brazilian failure to get regular action for the Blues in the early part of the season until latter stage.

“Willian’s pace. He spent a long part of the season coming off the bench and then he got game time and looked great as you’d expect, so direct,” he admitted.

He also comments on Toby Alderweireld’s lack of first-team actions, which could be traced to the unfortunate injury and his contract saga with the North London club.

“Alderweireld obviously has been excellent beside Vertonghen until the injuries and the contract talks thwarted that,” he said.

He finally advised Mourinho to sign both players, but it all depends on Chelsea’s decision over Willian’s future at the Stamford Bridge.

“Yeah sign those two, absolutely,” the Scot concluded.

As for Alderweireld, Tottenham are ready to partway with the strong full-back and they are hoping to make nothing below £30m from his sale in the summer.

Emerging reports indicate that Chelsea powerhouse N’Golo Kante might be unhappy at the Stamford Bridge over the new role being handed to him by manager Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea legend, Tony Cascarino observed that the French midfielder has been drafted to a more advanced role in the Sarri team and he is looking unsatisfied with the development.

He noted that Kante is known with his popular holding midfield role and that has made him the player he is today in addition to helping Leicester City secure their Premier League title as well as helping Chelsea with same title the next year.

Kante was also positioned in the same role with the French national team where he helped the Blues win a World Cup trophy at Russia.

Cascarino stated that with the new position, the French man is looking unhappy and may decide to find his way out knowing the number of top European clubs seeking for his signature.

According to the former player, if the situation remains the same, Chelsea could lose the World Cup winner because all he wants is to be happy and enjoy his game.

European clubs like Paris St-Germain, Spanish giants Real Madrid and Juventus are reported to be seeking the player’s signature with all clubs willing to break the bank for him to leave the Stamford Bridge.

Former player Jamie Redknapp has made a strong claim on Chelsea hero Ross Barkley after he saved his side from an embarrassing home defeat against Manchester United on Saturday.

Barkley had come in from the bench to help steal a 86th minute 2-2 equalizer as his side were losing by 2-1, no thanks to United’s Anthony Martial who struck twice to cancel Antonio Rudiger’s first half lead.

It is already becoming a trait for Barkley who also came in to help his England national team secure a 3-2 win over Spain in the UEFA Nations League during the recently ended international break.

According to Redknapp, the 24-year-old has had a very great week with his Saturday’s performance which adds to what he did against Spain in the national team.

He described the English star as manager Maurizio Sarri’s power play who now has the ability to provide a magic play for his side especially when they are losing.

With his return from a hamstring injury after a six months layoff, the former player admits Barkley is getting sharper by each game.

Barkley who joined the Stamford Bridge from Everton is now providing that relief for star player Eden Hazard who seems to have been overburdened with the responsibility to deliver victory for his team.

Willian

Brazilian forward Willian has urged his Chelsea teammates to step up in their responsibility to help lift the team.

He made this claim while reacting to the injury suffered by Belgium international Eden Hazard from the last weekend’s game against United at the Stamford Bridge.

Hazard had played the 90 minutes of the game but woke up on Sunday morning with a back pain which affects his movement and might rule him out in the Blues Europa League clash against BATE Borisov on Thursday as well as a trip to Burnley three days after.

The Belgium man has been the biggest contributor to the Chelsea team which makes it a blow to the Stamford Bridge, especially with his unavailability.

Willian, therefore, urged the players to stand up and provide a cover for the Belgium international while he will be away, adding that Hazard cannot be available to rescue the team all time.

He noted that knowing his ability, teams will target to stop Hazard just like what happened against the Red Devils which makes it important for others to live up to expectations

Chelsea strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have continued to be shy of goals as they have both performed far below expectations but are being saved by the fact that manager Maurizio Sarri keeps faith in them.

Eden Hazard

Chelsea have got reasons to worry following the reported back injury suffered by star player Eden Hazard in the game against United at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday noon.

The Belgium international had completed the game that ended in a 2-2 draw but emerging reports reveal that he woke up on Sunday morning with a severe back pain which affected his movements.

Hazard is believed to have been affected by the no nonsense marking given to him by United’s Nemanja Matic and Ashley Young in the game. It would be recalled that the Red Devils duo were booked in the game.

Belgium international has now become a doubt for the Blues’ Europa League encounter with Bate Borisov on Thursday evening and another trip to Burnley on Sunday.

This is expected to be a major setback to the Maurizio Sarri’s bid to contend for the Premier League title knowing the role of the player in the past games.

The West London side have been warned to secure a replacement for the Belgium man as his absence could cost the team their title bid with strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud not scoring goals.

However, Sarri will hope on the current form of Ross Barkley who had rescued them against Chelsea to continue until Hazard returns to full fitness.
