Mourinho defiant over striker transfer.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is refusing to let Loic Remy leave the club this summer, even if the Blues’ £15m asking price is met, according to latest reports.
The Premier League champions may be about to unveil the signing of Radamel Falcao on loan from AS Monaco this week, but Mourinho insists he still wants Remy as one of his options up front.
The prolific Frenchman has been linked with the likes of West Ham United and Swansea City as he eyes first-team football, but the Daily Mirror now claim he is not for sale at any price this summer.
Falcao’s arrival could push Remy down to third choice centre-forward, but the former Queens Park Rangers man showed his worth last season with some important goals in the absence of injury-prone Diego Costa.
