Chelsea Line Up Audacious Move for PSG Pair

Stamford Bridge side target Parc des Princes side.

Check in to West Ham United vs Chelsea

Chelsea are reportedly interested in conducting something of a Parc des Princes raid as Sports Direct News claims that the West London side are looking t= sign midfield battler Blaise Matuidi and playmaker Javier Pastore.

Jose Mourinho will look to strengthen his Blues midfield and is known to be an admirer of both players, who could both be lured away from the Ligue 1 side in January.

Defensive midfielder Matuidi has been stalling contract talks and is available on a free transfer next summer when his current deal comes to a close. Man City are also interested in the 26 year old who joined PSG from Toulouse in the summer of 2011.

Mourinho may feel that Matuidi is a more viable steely option to field in the centre of his side than the likes of John Obi Mikel or Michael Essien.

Argentine creative midfielder Pastore could also be on his way out as Laurent Blanc has handed the former Palermo man just one Ligue 1 start since August and interest in acquiring his services may well be a nod to the fact that Juan Mata is seemingly a player Jose Mourinho is not convinced about.
