The Times, an English Daily has reported that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is set to commit his future to Stamford Bridge by signing a new 4-year contract.
This contract will “affirm his status as the Premier League’s best-paid football manager”. His new salary is reported to be a whopping 7.25 million pounds per annum.
This comes after an excellent campaign domestically where the charismatic Portuguese added yet another Barclays Premier League medal and a Capital One Cup medal to go along with his years of success around Europe. Having conquered England and his future sealed, Jose can now concentrate on winning the Champions League with Chelsea. This will make him the first manager to win the competition thrice with three different clubs.
Meanwhile, Mourinho’s Portuguese assistants, Rui Faria and Silvino Louro are also set to sign new deals, alongside their boss. They too will get a significant pay rise, although the daily does not specify the numbers on this one.
The Times are also reporting that Columbian striker Radamel Falcao “has agreed personal terms with Chelsea and is 100% committed to the club.” The only details to be sorted out between the clubs are whether the deal will be a loan, or a permanent one.
With Didier Drogba already out of contract, the ex-Manchester United striker Falcao is on the radar of Jose Mourinho who believes that he can revamp the striker and make him the world-beater he once was. Mourinho commented on DirecTV Sports,
“If I can help Falcao reach his level again, I will do it! It hurts me that people in England think that the real Falcao is the one we saw at Manchester United.”
Falcao’s serious injury in France made him miss the World Cup in Brazil. Since then his first season at Manchester United wasn’t great. Do you feel that the once mercurial player can return to his best?
Another bump on the road is his massive salary, which will surely affect Chelsea’s finances in the FFP calculations. Many have also spoken up Patrick Bamford to stay at Chelsea as the third striker. What do you think Chelsea should do? Go for a once great, now mediocre player? Or go for a young striker, untested in the Premier League? Let’s wait and find out!
