Within all the speculations surrounding Mourinho’s job at Stamford Bridge, Galatasaray’s star playmaker Wesley Sneijder has backed his former manager Jose Mourinho to bounce back from a poor start to the season as he reportedly sent messages to the Portuguese manager to support him.
He said, “If he’s sacked it will be a mistake because Chelsea will not find a better coach. He’s the best, and he’s particularly the best for Chelsea. Do not say goodbye to him,” Sneijder told this to the Portuguese daily newspaper O Jogo.
In other news, Chelsea have also demanded more than £86m for their superstar attacking midfielder and forward.
The Daily Mail have made claims that. Chelsea have demanded that Real Madrid pay more than £86m for Eden Hazard, which would set a new world-record; beating the figure Los Blancos paid Tottenham Hotspur for Gareth Bale back in 2013.
Despite struggling for form this season, along with the rest of the Blues squad, Hazard is still a very fine player and the whole world recognises this as Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germaine have been on red-alert to pounce on the player when the opportunity arises.
The 24-year-old has himself been pushing an exit following Chelsea’s woeful start, which has seen them lost six of their opening 11 Premier League matches, with suggestions Hazard will leave if the club fail to achieve Champions League football. This situation has also been worsened with Mourinho’s attitude towards the player himself.
Recent reports are also claiming that Chelsea rejected a €50m bid for Chelsea manager as reports are saying that, according to the Monaco shareholder Alessandro Proto, the French club have already made the first move in contacting the Portuguese manager.
In the press release, Proto Enterprises claim Roman Abramovich instead valued his employee at €100m because he claimed he was ‘the best manager in the world’.
Proto is quoted as saying “We offered €50m to have the coach immediately, but the request was €100m and the figure seems too much.”
Chelsea fans will have to wait and see what happens with their manager and where he is by the end of the season.
