With the widely documented return of the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’, Chelsea have seen a huge boost behind closed doors but it seems that the return of Jose Mourinho is not about to settle the club internally following claims that the Portuguese boss is set to embark on a buying spree once the transfer window opens again in January.
Mourinho made no secret of his desire to add to this frontline during the recent negotiation period, setting his sights on Manchester United attacker Wayne Rooney, making the English international his only target for the summer, however after failing to convince the attacker to request a move away from Old Trafford, time ran out on a potential deal and the Portuguese manager was left red faced after failing to secure his target.
With Wayne Rooney refusing to force a move away from Manchester United, Mourinho opted to secure the services of former Barcelona and Anzhi Makhackala striker Samuel Eto’o on a one year contract as he looked to bolster his options in front of goal but that will not satisfy the Chelsea boss and you can be sure that once the transfer window opens again in January he will have a list of players within his sights as he looks to steer the London side back to Premier League success.
With the Chelsea boss keen to add new talent to his squad, time looks limited for his current attacking options as club record purchase Fernando Torres failed to impress following his move from Liverpool and Spanish international Juan Mata seemingly falling out of favour, opening the doors to a number of attacking options being brought into the club.
As speculation towards the targets that Mourinho seems to have in mind in order to enhance his chances of repeating his league title success during his previous reign at Stamford Bridge, a number of names are being pushed forward by the sports pundit community.
It is believe that Mourinho will continue his interest in Manchester United attacker Wayne Rooney, while he also looking into the availability of Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke and AC Milan forward Stephan El Shaarawy.
With the prospect of further challenges for a starting place within the Chelsea line-up, thoughts suggest that Fernando Torres will look to take advantage of Mourinho’s desire to bring in new talent to the club to secure a move abroad, with former side Atlectico Madrid considered as his preferred destination in order to return back to Spain.
