Transfer balls: Manchester United want Mourinho and Mahrez, Chelsea call for Drogba,
The January soccer sales are almost upon us. The media is talking transfers:
Chelsea are chasing Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, says Fox Sports. Manchester City want to hire Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola. But Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris St-Germain also want him, says the Guardian.
Man United also want the former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, says the Sun.
Which means that Louis Van Gaal will be free to manage Bayern Munich. Right?
After that look at life in the managerial Petri Dish, we learn that Manchester United have £29m for Leicester’s Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez, 24. Well, so says the Daily Express.
Radamel Falcao, 29, – who he? – wants to ask new / old Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink if he’s going to break a sweat at Stamford Bridge, says the Daily Mirror. One striker Hiddink does want is Didier Drogba.
Gus wants the former Chelsea player to be part of his coaching staff at Stamford Bridge, says the Times. Drogba can do for Chelsea what Ryan Giggs is doing for United, then – look pensive and sit down a lot.
