Jose Mourinho became Chelsea manager for the second time earlier this month and the Portuguese coach looks set to change the clubs squad considerably this summer, with Chelsea intend on bringing in many new faces that will push the club towards the top of the Premier League table. Here are the top ten targets that Chelsea could sign this summer.
10- Angel Di Maria- Real Madrid
Jose Mourinho made Di Maria a priority signing when he became Real Madrid coach three years ago and the player joined that same summer. The winger flourished under Mourinho at the Bernabeu, becoming a regular fixture in Madrid’s starting line-up. However, Di Maria’s future at Madrid is not so certain now that Mourinho has left the Bernabeu. Madrid are desperate to sign Spurs winger Gareth Bale and if Los Blancos are successful, there maybe no place in the clubs line-up for Di Maria.
This has led to speculation that the Argentine international may seek to move away from the Spanish capital in order to play first team football and if the winger does become available, Chelsea will surely be interested. Mourinho likes to have pacy, skilful wingers so that they can provide crosses for a centre forward and since Di Maria became a favourite of Mourinho’s during their time at Real Madrid, the Portuguese coach may take the opportunity to bring Di Maria to Stamford Bridge. At the moment Di Maria has said that he is happy at Madrid but if Gareth Bale does make the move to Los Blancos, Di Maria may well consider his options.
