With Arsenal having made a bid for Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira, tomorrow’s Mirror claim Jose Mourinho is planning another ‘Willian’.
A Willian: Hijacking a transfer move, and snatching a player just as a rival club thinks they have him, just as Chelsea did to Tottenham last summer with Willian.
And tomorrow’s Mirror claim Mourinho is planning on repeating the coup, by swooping in for Khedira and stealing him from under Arsenal’s noses.
With Mourinho having managed Khedira at Real Madrid for 3 seasons, the Portuguese boss clearly feels he holds an ace in the pack, and may be able to turn the German midfielder’s head.
With Fabregas, Diego Costa and Tiago already signed up, Khedira would be the fourth La Liga summer signing for Chelsea.
