An Unnecessary Gamble by Mourinho?
Some transfer speculations create merriment plus there are those that fossilize the fans. According to the Express newspaper, Jose Mourinho has placed his sights on Tottenham’s bench warmer Emmanuel Adebayor. For the Togo international, it would be an upright bonanza if the deal turns to reality as Adebayor is one of the ebbing stars in the league at the moment. Conversely, is he really a requirement for the Blues now as they comprise one of the finest attackers? Diego Costa has been a perfect fit in his debut season, next the electrifying Loic Remy and their beloved legend Didier Drogba, a solid depth. In addition, the Special One has managed the former Arsenal forward while he was on a six-month loan at Real Madrid back in 2011. Being a confidence-hit player who is faltering for regular playing minutes, is he worth the hefty 100,000 pounds per week wages? There is no doubt, Mauricio Pochettino will enthusiastically allow Adebayor leave the club, having the exquisite hunter Harry Kane.
Captain Extends His Spell with the Blues
Chelsea football club has announced of lengthening contract with their legendary defensive maestro John Terry for a year. The 34-year old has been on rich vein of form this season, alongside Gary Cahill and Zouma in the heart of defense, helping the Blues to seal 13 clean sheets so far. Plenty clubs were awaiting similar fate as Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard for Terry, yet Mourinho ensured his captain remains for another season. The brick-wall of Chelsea has made 661 appearances for the club and has clinched 13 trophies. Here is what Terry expressed on the exuberant extension, “I’m delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea,” the captain told the club’s official website. After adding another major trophy to my collection this month I hope myself, the players and manager can continue to bring success to our club. Playing for this great club makes me so proud and, as always, I would like to thank the fans who have continually supported me.”
This season has been fairly satisfying for England manager Roy Hodgson where couple of pearly finishers has emerged for selection headaches. Harry Kane stormed into his first senior debut against Lithuania and made things beyond his own believe by notching a goal within a minute. Charlie Austin as well as Danny Ings deserved the call-ups too yet there wasn’t much space for Hodgson to squeeze in. Burnley are reasonably struggling at the relegation zone, regardless of the situation of the club, Ings has been consistently rifling in goals. Unlike the style of Harry Kane, he has the physical strength efficiency and prowess in aerial balls, an optimum bargain for any top clubs to secure. The cutting-edge news right now is both Merseyside teams are battling to obtain his services next season. Roberto Martinez is reportedly eyeing a stiff competition for Romelu Lukaku hence the 22-year old is being the top priority. Equally, Brendan Rodgers has his own striking drawbacks too, Sturridge’s injury list this campaign is higher than the amount of goals notched by Mario Balotelli plus Lambert seems to be a cumbersome option. Hardly ever the fantasy premier league managers seek the Reds for forward decisions. In the previous transfer window, Ings was heavily linked for a move to Anfield but the deal collapsed due to fee agreement.
