It’s the transfer season, and Chelsea is looking to strengthen their squad with some new signings that would help them clinch the ultimate glory in European football. However, Chelsea have made Jose Mourinho their priority and given him a fresh new contract. The new deal sees Mourinho’s contract running out till 2019. However, the major talking point about the new contract is that Mourinho has apparently rejected a hike in his pay.
According to The Sun, Mourinho earns 8.5 million euros and will still stay on the same salary! One of us!
Sources close to Mourinho claims:
“It has been an easy deal to do. Jose said he’s happy on the same money as before, so we’re just extending the contract by two years. Everyone’s delighted.”
Mourinho has shown his immense love and made it clear to all the Chelsea fans that he is staying and has no intentions to take managerial jobs somewhere else unless and until Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich asks him to leave. Mourinho claimed last year he wasn’t motivated by money as he said:
“I don’t need a contract; I don’t need a pay rise. I stay as long as Mr Abramovich wants me!”

In today’s football where everything revolves around money, Mourinho has shown what the true love for football is and how to deal with a situation with class and suave. Jose is the pillar that Chelsea currently need and under him Chelsea are certain to bloom. Having the Portuguese also means more trophies to the Bridge while watching other managers getting annoyed is a treat of it’s own.
Another major change Mourinho is bringing to Chelsea is developing players from the youth academy. “The Special One” has already bought some amazingly gifted players like Ruben Loftus Cheek, Dominic Solanke, Izzy Brown and Charly Musonda to the senior squad and wants them to compete for their place in the first team. Also, Mourinho has been a manager who has perfectly abode by the rules be it FPP or the homegrown quota rules; he has been the go-to man for Chelsea. In conclusion, I would Chelsea have already made the best signing not only for this season but for the seasons to come.
